Depends on your definition of delicate wallflowers.
In practice, that's about 90% of the people who used to post here.

Most of the rest is just bickering with the flamers. There's very little new content, and when there is half the time our little flamer thinks it's necessary to harass the poster into giving up and going somewhere else.

Is that a good thing? No, not really. Does that matter? Nope, not even slightly.

They have lamed this place to death. One day, nobody will bother.

he's right though
Its why, while I persistently criticise the flamers (it is a better and more apt description than trolls, so I will adopt it going forward), I also always ignore2 them first so as not to get into a bicker-debate with them.

I joined this site after a long period of reading the old QOTWs. Just as the quality represented there started to collapse into an internecine war. I still have hopes we can go back to actually sharing funny stories as a majority of postings. Fingers crossed.

but he is not right and neither are you. you are imagining the past as being somehow different, it wasn't.

(, Mon 29 Sep 2014, 17:42, closed)
If I am genuinely incorrect...
... then I'd appreciate being shown how so

All the old QOTWs are still accessible. I've read the lot. Before a certain point they dont have any in-sequence replies, meaning either a database migration has been done badly or the board lacked the functionality at some point, and I dont know which. However many recent ones seem complete in every detail

Have the mods been going back in time and cleaning it up for standards? was it more actively modded back in the day? or am I right?

you are suffering from cognitive dissonance and adding to the crying of serial none productive troll hardly helps

I have a lot of respect for you but you have failed to prove your point here and it shouldnt be that hard to do so if you are right.
(, Mon 29 Sep 2014, 18:55, closed)
I will not prove but I will not agree to the one track logic that 'flamers' or trolls ruined qotw.
I blame (?) all the other social media mediums for the decline in volume of posts and numbers visiting the site. As to the general sense of humour.

And then I shit myself

Thanks - that makes more sense

The flamers didn't ruin QOTW.
They ruined the talk board, then ruined QOTW.

They're now ruining top tips.

It's pretty obvious. The cretinous wittering that /talk consists of is boring. You spotted QOTW was a lot more interesting, so started here. Problem is, you're all fucking morons, and QOTW became more of the same.

Then you spotted top tips was pretty funny, and thought you;d perk it up with gems like "make sure you mention suicide, attempted suicides and death of loved ones no matter what the qotw subject matter.
This will prove to all readers that you are very much a weepy mess and probably from Australia."

I mean, why would anyone read that and not want to join in?

So, just the main board left to fuck up, and you can call the job done.

When
it first started, QOTW wasn't set up for replies. Some users reckon that was the beginning of the end.
(, Mon 29 Sep 2014, 18:30, closed)
The board lacked the functionality
Initially, it wasn't possible to reply.
(, Tue 30 Sep 2014, 12:15, closed)
you know, the solution to there not being enough good anecdotes is to write good anecdotes
not to fill up these boards with constant whining. It's not really a substitute.
(, Mon 29 Sep 2014, 12:59, closed)
What for?
I used to do it, but when every time you do you just get a lot of static from these idiots, it becomes pointless.

Too late for that, this place is ruined. I only stay because it annoys the puppies.

Don't do a Shambo on us and get all upset because people aren't doing what you're telling them to do. It just makes you look like a furious little bitch, and people will laugh at you.

Right, Shambo?

Are you saying that your anecdotes don't have any point
unless you have a captive audience who will agree that you're awesome?

If you had the courage of your convictions you would post your anecdotes regardless and not let someone random on the internet bother you. Instead, 95% of your output is bitching about trolls in a whiny way.

No, the trolling is not the epitome of wit, but in general it comprises fire-and-forget comments which are at least sometimes funny. Those who mocked you will have done so casually, barely interested in your existence beyond the luls of that moment. However your whiny bitching is always dull, but more to the point is *meaningful*. Arguably, if you've stayed here beyond your own threshold of tolerance simply to annoy the trolls, then you've got more spite and bile inside you than your enemies have ever had.

FFS wax and feather your back.

I'm not bothered by people mocking me, but when they
bring their pointless prattling to every single thread, it just becomes pointless to get involved.

Most of the time, it's not mocking anyway. A lot of it of it is stuff like whatever has just popped into dr queefs head, whether it makes any sense or not.

These posters simply have no filters. They never question whether they should post something, they just do it.

Hence Shambo manages to rack up 100,000+ posts one one account. It's simply impossible for him to create such an avalanche of posts and not have 99% of it be absolute drivel.

Anyway, if my whining annoys you, ignore me. Don't whine about me whining, that's just stupid.

You still think someone values your opinion. Why do you waste your time with these futile, long winded comebacks.
No one gives a flying fuck about you or your opinions. Obviously I do but just so I can remind you that you are a tedious prick. A really really tedious prick.
(, Wed 1 Oct 2014, 15:17, closed)
Stop reading it then.
It clearly bothers you, I'd have thought the best thing is to ignore me.

You know, don't feed the trolls and all that?
(, Thu 2 Oct 2014, 8:15, closed)
...
...and it hasn't occurred to you that maybe you should do the same with the trolls posts?
(, Thu 2 Oct 2014, 16:32, closed)
Why?
It doesn't bother me.

These aren't trolls, they're just dicks. Me posting seems to piss them off, so I'll carry on doing it until one of us gets banned.

Oh, wait. Shambo already got banned. Until I get banned then.

Plus, wind your neck in, you can ignore it as well if you choose to.
(, Fri 3 Oct 2014, 8:12, closed)
It doesn't bother you so much you reply. So not bothered, really not bothered.
