Why do I hate Marvell?

I always thought Donne was cooler.

Why is no one ignoring me?

Postby Marvell » Fri Jul 08, 2005 10:31 am

So - after all btrapp's characteristic squawking about the issue, I decided to check my profile. Much to my shock and chagrin, I'm on no one's 'Ignore' list.

Don't I needlessly correct people's grammer and spelling? Don't I make snotty comments about motorists and bicyclists alike? Don't I, in general, act like my shit doesn't stink? Don't you get it people? I'm an asshole.

Damn. Clearly I'll have to work harder on being objectionable.

Other people have squawked, err...said more about it than I have.

Just doing your part to pass along the meme, eh?

As for why you're not being SelfCensored by other people, I'd guess 'cause they just don't care...one way or another...about you enough. You gotta make people get emotional before they put ya on their ignore list ;)

Dude!

I am all about passing alone the meme!

It's like a socio-linguistic hack. You wouldn't want me to drop the hack, would you?

That wouldn't be very kind.

Well, according to christopher robin's "Our Animal Friends" thread, penguins don't squawk, they bleat. At least the babies do.

Hope that helps, boys!

Hey, my profile says this: "Friend of: Nobody"

Don't I needlessly correct people's grammer [that damn well better have been deliberate...] and spelling? Don't I make snotty comments about motorists and bicyclists alike? Don't I, in general, act like my shit doesn't stink? Don't you get it people? I'm an asshole.


Oho, I don't see your name on the asshole awards listin the other thread. Maybe you were a runner-up, like "Miss Animosity" or something.[1]

[1] Really, really obscure reference. I'll be thrilled if anyone recognizes it...

Damn. Clearly I'll have to work harder on being objectionable.


Ah, that bodes well for the future of the Forum. How could such sweet and wholesome hours be reckoned, but with herbs and flowers?

Is this sarcasm?? Being an asshole isn't enough to distinguish yourself on here.

Now that Shick has passed into some 5,000th-post malaise, you've taken the eloquent asshole par excellance baton and run with it.

Marvell is the new Schick. You're too damn entertaining for anyone to ignore.

I'm so thoroughly entertained here at the DPF that I can't imagine why I would want to put anyone on ignore.

That's 'cause unlike those who are using the "Ignore" button, you have self-control.

The people who use that button are lacking in that department, so therefore they see the need for self-censorship. People who have self-control have no need for the "ignore" button...we can not-bother with the posts that bother us just fine w/o it.

But I am glad that the crutch is available for those who do need it...the people who are using that feature are now posting less than before, and that's a good thing.

Go fuck yourself with a pogo stick, dumb bunny. I put you on ignore at your request 'cause you're too pussy to put up with a little shit talk when you start dribbling the rhetorical equivalent of creamed corn from your face anus. Then you start whining like a little girl about how people are ignoring you. There's no pleasing congenital dolts like you, it would seem.

But you have been whining a bit less on the forum of late, so maybe my relenting from poking you in your fat hippy ribs has had a positive outcome.

Y'all other forons can thank me later. Buy me a drink or some shit.

"face anus" is worth a sixer all by itself.

I would say it would be worth a triple espresso from me if I hadn't just sprayed one all over my monitor.

So no Chuck, you owe me some paper towels and some Windex. Damn you!

"People who have self-control have no need for the "ignore" button...we can not-bother with the posts that bother us just fine w/o it."

apparently then, you lack this glorious self control? there isn't a post, a poke, a jibe, a dither that escapes your twitty little comments.

the "ignore" button helps us simply weed out the vapid shit that wastes our time. checkmate.
