I am Miffed

I'm a more than a little miffed

 

Seems some of you don't think I am who I am. I asked why that would matter and did not get an adequate response. I am supposed to be an existing member pretending to be me. Why? What possible motive would I have? What gems of knowledge would I gain about you that I could not get by being this hypothetical weirdo himself? None.

 

What would I have to gain to misrepresent myself? I have not asked any of you for money or anything else for that matter, so what's my motivation? I have not propositioned any of you or even mildly flirted with anyone, so again where woud be my motive? I stand to gain nothing by misrepresenting myself.

 

It annoys me that anyone would thus accuse me, what do you have to gain by it? Does my mear presence upset you? My posts? It doesn't matter, whoever you are, you are fools of the first order.

 

I have been told I don't sound like a 16 year old. Really? What does a 16 year old sound like? I am more well read than almost everyone here. I started reading novels when I was 6. I started reading philosophy and non-fiction when I was 8. I graduated high school when I was 10 and could have gone straight into college. I waited until I was 14 to begin college. Does it occur that I might not sound like a tyical 16 year old because I am not typical?

 

I won't stay where I am not wanted. I have no need to hang with losers and cowards who hide behind others to accuse. I won't post here anymore or respond to any PMs. I may from time to time ask questions in the technical forums. If that bothers you, tough.

 

To those who are innocent among you, I apologize for the ones who are not.

I don't see why you should take any offense. First of all, basically every single new person who starts posting here is accused of being an alt of someone else. I don't know why.

 

Secondly, personally I wouldn't take offense if someone on the Internet thought I was secretly a meerkat or whatever. In fact, I would probably be very amused if people did not believe my IRL credentials.

Hades/Sand/others, Gabirelle, Dark/Raven/a small army of others, Krezack/LoF/others, need I go on? :lol:

GD I think one of the issues is we are not  welcoming enough with new forum members

 

Do you remember the last time we actually had a new person on WoT who stayed?

Didn't all the first ones you mentioned admit to being alts? Krezack never came out as LoF as far as I know, so that's doubtful. What I really challenge are basically accusations of people being alts from LoF onwards.

@ SS you have just spent far more time worrying about this than it's worth. If you are an alt you'll reveal yourself in time. They always do. If you're not what do you care? If you enjoy the conversations here, keep posting. If you don't... don't. We don't roll out the welcome mat and we don't run folks off. If you have something to say, say it. We'll read it, Some responses might be less than courteous. That is how it goes. Don't ever take offense to words on a screen. You will be miserable all your life if that is where your threshold is. You'll hear a wider variation of opinions here than you'll get elsewhere. Most website forums tend to be monolithic in opinion I've found. Birds of a feather and all that. But not here.

 

Now as for alts, spotting them is something of a sport around here. And it used to be so common I once joked there were only 10 actual people posting on this board. I always though it was just harmless sport but the mods will run someone off for that. So the only opinion that matters is theirs and they have ways of finding out. 

 

So go, or stay. But don't do the latter out of spite or the former out of offense.

:lol:  No he was. He forgot what name he was signed in under on time and posted... out of charachter shall we say?

This thread makes me nostalgic about being young again. Back when the parents were completely clueless on why Pantera was totally dope.

 

Fun times.

we don't run folks off.

I think he meant on purpose.

The area between the balls and the butt is a hotbed of terrorist activity.

Tbh. I don't think there's much difference if the outcome is the same.

 

Granted, it might be possible that the poster in question was indeed an alt who sensed that the jig was up and decided to go out in style, and it is equally possible that she wasn't, yet she'll chill and return a few days later (she wouldn't be the first to dramatically swear off posting on these forums, then silently come back later).

 

Nevertheless, if none of those is true, she has been chased off these forums. Might not have been intentional, but is really your intent the most important consideration there when the forum lost a unique voice whose insight and perspective wouldn't have made it a poorer place?

Totally missed what happen here, but from that opening post I must say 'Sayonara!' I hadn't seen so much self boasting and complete lack of courtesy in a long time

 

we mere losers and cowards will not hold you down, so you can fly to better places full of joy and 6 years old collage students

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

Aw man, now our Parisian criminal adolescent genius is leaving! Tis a rough start to a Tuesday. :(

 

This could be made into a movie or even a TV show.

 

French girl moves to America with her family. By 6 is reading novels, by 8 is reading philosophy. Finishes high school by 10. Has a few years off before going to College and in the mean time gets mixed up with the wrong crowd and now has a parole officer. Decides to get back on the straight and narrow to get a PhD in Quantum Mechanics from Cal Tech. Would apply to NASA, but their not really worthy as they are a space agency in name only these days. Will eventually go back to Europe to work with the European Space Agency.
