Do you like...

...ego boosting attention polls?

If so, you know what to do (by the way, the outcome of this poll will determine whether such threads stay open or not)

I always select the killing option in polls. Unless, of course, it's to kill ME. But as the ego threads are dumb, and I am not an ego thread, kill 'em.

I despise them. Will you ban them? Forever? I'll be your best friend for ever and always if you do.

Attention whoring at its finest is what they are. Except for shutt's satirical one.

I voted for killing, violence is always the answer.

We're all thinking alot

If they lead to a healthful, wonderful discussion, I'd be for them. If all they amount to is terrible bickering and making eachother feel good/bad, I say bugger the lot.









And saying "bugger the lot" is quite powerful for us Americans.

Because the last time a super moderator closed threads in this forum, he caught Hell for it.

For me to just close threads in this area, is like pissing on another dog's marked territory.

RemiO, Metallus, and bgbennyboy, don't come into the Jedi Knight area and start closing threads, nor do any of us wander into Aresen and close threads there, so i'll be damned if I am going to do that over here.

We all respect each other, and each other's turf. If one of them sends me the nod, or permision to lock down a particular thread over here, then I go for it. But never without talking to them first. It's just an unwritten law, that's all.

well...i see my thread has been closed and yet a couple other topics asking about it/mocking it have budded up and are very...vivacious.

i'd have to say...close all the threads about the self-centered s***.

including this one.

i've been having a sucky day and this s*** is making it no better. if anybody wanted to close my thread, then why didn't they just do it instead of having to have a complete and full-blown discussion about it. and why hasn't anyone closed carl shutt's thread yet? because he's better than me? because it serves as a thread where carl can humiliate the people that he doesn't like and people enjoy seeing that? and i also don't appreciate how people had to enter the topic and say how much they hated it. if you hate it so much, don't bother with it. just wait for a mod or whoever to come along and close it up.

but not to turn this into a topic about me.

anyway...do whatever the hell you want. i don't care. and it's not as if my opinion would really make a difference anyway or that anybody would even read this post and care about it.

There were a number of reasons why I chose to create this thread. one was sheer boredom. Another was the fact that reading C Shutts thread filled my with so much anger sarcastic intent, I just had to post this. A final one would probably be the fact that I do hate them, but coming flat out and closing them all by cause som contraversy so I thought if I got a mojority vote on it, you can't really complain.

And then I left for a few days on business (a staff christmas party still counts as business!) and so haven't been around to flat out close them no matter what the outcome of this thread (because i'm just like that... what are you looking at, I gave ú10 to a womans baby fund today, i need to balance it out (and find a tenner))

well, whatever. I think becoming a moderator has finally gotten to me. nicely enough, none of the oldies are here to see it... oh, hi Natty, me nice guy .

Anyone who needs self indulging **** like "do you like me" on this forum needs to go some self help loving forum where they can be told like it is. Anyone who finds themselves feeding their self esteem with feedback from people they've never even met before to judge how great they are....needs to go to counceling. If I should ever create a thread like this I should be slapped in the face (and groovy did it once with my see ya thread) so i know all about it. Sometimes you just need to wake up and stop being an ass.

i dont know if its normal for young people to be insecure with themselfes..
perhabs they would never asks such questions in a non-incognito environment like real life.

hmm.


perhabs all they need to get told is

Hey you dont bother me i dont bother you you dont steal my drugs i dont steal yours and what the hell should my answer to your question be based on?
how fast your computer is, although we both know that we will both need a new one every 6 months?
that you are one out of thousands who also did a funny joke, although we both know it will have a beard within the next 6 months?
that your parents are rich and famous, although we both know they cheat each other and you are only an accident?

so what do you think is more important:
the fact that some complete strangers have said "yes, do we like you" or that anna said "mhey. ymou pafte greap!"?



young people need guidance, y'know?
