Video Games! They're like, only my favorite sport ever!
Shut up .

Also, there's an International eSports Federation. Also, this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BarCraft
These are my arguments, I will repeat them whenever this topic pops up in my view. I do not want to add anything extra. See for yourselves that they are legit. If you STILL refuse to accept eSports (professional gaming) as a legit sports.... well, there's people who argue whether tomatoes are fruits or vegetables and other people who call ham "bacon". It's your opinion and I won't accept it until reality tells otherwise.
End of story.
HAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAH. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Also, Playa, you're about to see Steve_Greg/Marmotlord blow up so get some popcorn. Also, I miss you!
I already told you that was all I could say, why are igniting the fire? Because you're a fucking liability when it comes to your moderating attributions and responsibilities, that's why. The only thing I'm going to blow up about in here is you and your behavior that is 90% of the time worse than coins'. And you can shove that popcorn up your ass, my above post is all I'm saying about gaming/sports.
Well, that took even less time than I expected, @playa988
Chill out bro.
This is the best way to get him mad
Honestly, I probably shouldn't rile him up like that but between his constant cheating, poor attempts at manipulating me (see: dozens of PMs) and his extraordinarily short temper, I always seem to piss him off, anyway.
I'd love to see these pm's
After I refused to delete a thread that he asked a bunch of mods to delete, he sent me this beauty:
Who called you in the conversation?
Do you enjoy mocking me? Do you enjoy the self-destruction of CYS under your command?
But who called you in the conversation/ When I asked for mods, I left you out especially because I don't want to see your presence . I don't NEED you, I don't WANT you, I won't acknowledge you as a mod until you prove to be a mod and not a troll with mod powers.
Can't you just ignore me? No, your big fat EGO needs to see someone burn, and what better target for trolling than that one guy who did some big dumb crap in the past that nobody seems to want to forget?
oh, you don't like what I say? It must be a lie! #JJJlogic.
my example looks from an unrelated angle like something that looks like a logical fallacy? Then I must be a moron! #JJJlogic
Two people have a discussion and you barge in with an argument that has already been proven wrong? Wow, you must be so great! #JJJlogic.
You like calling Steve's actions fallacies and you don't notice the dumb shit the others say? You must be intelligent! #JJJlogic.
I'm tired of you
I'm tired of your shit, I'm tired of you not doing your fucking job, I'm tired of you not taking measures again spam then complaining about spam.
I'M TIRED OF YOU.
You're an incompetent disgrace to the title of moderator . You're the biggest plague that ever affected CYS. You're useless. You're the vilest troll, engaging in others' arguments for no reason . You're a joke.
I don't know how the others stand you and your behavior . You're a jerk, a jackass, a buffoon with authority.
You do not deserve my or anyone else's respect. I was a fool to consider you competent at the beginning. And I'll be a fool if I will ever do it again .
Your views are not always right. The world doesn't revolve around you.
And for the sake of everything there is, stop lying about me.
I can't remember what it was that he was blatantly lying about but it was pretty obvious and Sindri called him out on it and that's why he wanted the thread deleted in the first place. Also, I'd just like to say that he's not the only dude who has done bad things in the past. Swift used to be a huge spammer and we get along pretty well :)
It was about his mom
And well, any ego-manical mod would have banned him by now so I guess you're clean. Unless you keep him here as part of your evil plan for CYS domination
His mom seemed to be a very minor part of the thread, or at least it received very little focus. That's also not what angered him, the whole "I didn't point out that my words are my opinion" did.
Oh yeah, that. Man that was hilarious
Hmm... I think I should get my 41 points back now @JJJ since it is my OPINION that we should exterminate the Jews, which ain't as bad as simply saying that the Jews should be exterminated.
I also guess Marmot is still here cause it was his OPINION that JJJ sucks
Drako, just so you know (and I know this isn't the point of your post), if you get Tan to send me that message, like we talked about, I can give you those points back.
Oh he does that in all of his arguments. He realizes he's argued himself into a sinking ship that can't possibly win, so he acts like he's angry about something completely irrelevant and overexagerated. It's pretty common, actually. I did it all the time back in the day :P.
You did it very, very occasionally, from my memory, and you were usually pretty decent about admitting when you were wrong.
It depends on the person I was arguing with. I was bad about holding grudges.
Wouldn't you not posting in the threads to mediate arguments or ignoring the call for mods be a dereliction of your job as a moderator?
Dude, dereliction is such a beautiful word. I need to start using that one, more. But yeah, I agree. This reminds me of that time that JPlague (I think) accused me of running a dictatorship by creating The Council. Think about that, haha.
How the fuck is a Council a dictatorship?
Step 1: Give more power to the community via allowing them to vote what members pretty much help" moderate" the powers of the moderator.
Step 3: Complete and total domination.
Here you go!
I had completely forgotten about that, despite all the comments I made on that thread.
"This reminds me of that time that JPlague (I think) accused me of running a dictatorship by creating The Council. Think about that, haha."
Haha, this made my day. The things people come up with when trying to come up with a reason to hate on someone/something can be so hilariously stupid.
I like when he thought we would ban him for not liking the council XD
The council sounds dope. What happened?
Common sense and maturity.
So why is it not here?
It's kept in the Federal Reserve of Pre-2010 Members, and rations are maintained by JJJ.
A lot of people on the council went inactive. Plus Idk if anyone else was even nominated for trolling since then.
AHEM STILL HAVE ONE BROKEN PM THAT NO ONE CARES ABOUT XD
I'm quite curious, how did your emotions fluctuate as you read through his p.m?
No fluctuation. Mirth from beginning to end.
Is this what trolling is? I'm curious. It seems to fit this description quite well. Got it off wikipedia.
troll (/'tro?l/, /'tr?l/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community
One of the many definitions, yes.
I got my own personal angry PM from him I feel so proud right now. Like, life has meaning.
It's a special feeling isn't it brotha?
Haven't seen YOU in for-fucking ever.
What're you now, like 18?
28 days away from being charged as an adult :)
And now he's slipped back into the real world, only to emerge a few months from now :'(
I always seem to find my way back at the best possible time lol
Welcome back then?
I do agree that eSports is a sport :D
Me after skimming through this thread ( it's morning for me now, I didn't even knew this happened)
Date: 7/14/2014 4:32:20 AM
Have you ever considered the possibility that you may be mentally impaired?
Date: 7/13/2014 8:03:41 AM
yes, THREE FUCKING YEARS AGO.
I'm tired of people reminding me of my past mistakes, THEY ARE FUCKING PAST, AND I CAN'T FUCKING CHANGE THE PAST.
Let's say you suddenly mistakenly call most people on a website "yeasty cunts". so you get kicked out. Two years later, you return, announce you're the guy who did that, only because you want to get in touch with old friends, and suddenly everyone finds you the butt-monkey of the website because of the old mistake. The first few times, you show the middle finger at the screen, but it's the 5th time for me , and my temper is shorter than yours, plus that fucking Jerk keeps claiming lies about me.
I'm in a similar situation. The only difference is that I was right in the original argument and they still claim I'm wrong, since gaming IS a sport, as you may have noticed if you read the links with which I replied to your troll comment (now first post of the derailed VG thread).
So It's like you tell the truth, they don't believe you. Then, they keep saying stuff related to it, to annoy you. It seems like defending the truth when JerkJerkJerk is drunk (at least 48 hours a day) is an endless struggle with the only option being failure, regardless of arguments.
Date: 7/13/2014 2:46:26 AM
You set yourself up for it
Date: 7/12/2014 2:49:49 PM
Oh, you see something that brings back some memories and immediately feed JJJ, the biggest moderating failure, with fresh material with which he can troll me again? I'd tell you to stop living in the past, but I'm tired of telling this to every idiot who enjoys to mock facts because they don't like them. So I'm telling you to grow up. And stop feeding that buffoon, JJJerk-thebanijerk
Yes, feed him... feed poor JJJ until he gets fat and dies of heart attack from all the cyber-cholesterol from the food you feed him... yes, people, feeding the trolls shouldn't be stopped, it should be enforced so they DIE ALREADY.
It doesn't work that way. Trolls are like vampires, they attain immortality and power from their food, (Unless they're lame-ass Skyrim vampires, in which case blood nullifies their powers) and you can't store fat or much cholesterol at all from blood. That's why anything of human size and make could not possibly live on blood, and why vampire bats have to fly south for winter. Drinking all that "blood" food would simply fill up the troll's bladder, with which the troll would piss on anyone it pleased, until they get really pissed and start popping vessels and hemorrhaging, which would make the trollpire stop pissing, suck out the now easy-access blood to refill his bladder, and then piss again until the victim has no blood left or until his bladder is totally empty.
That's right, vampires don't use sharp teeth, they use hardy urethras.
I'm sure you view yourself as the innocent victim here, but I want you to pay attention to the fact that you literally claimed that someone should die. "it should be enforced so they DIE ALREADY." (see, here I used quotation marks, that makes it a quote unlike the quote you got angry at even though I didn't use quotation marks, making it not a quote at all. See the difference?)
Even from your perspective of JJJ, he never expressed he wanted you dead did he?
Funny how the only people who find him a poor moderator are the ones accused of trolling already.
It's funny if you read it from top to bottom
"Have you ever considered the possibility that you may be mentally impaired?"
"yes, THREE FUCKING YEARS AGO. "
hahahahahahhahahha, I read it that way.
I want to be fair here, as fun as it can be to point out Steve_Greg's bursts of anger, after the "opinion debate" thread, he actually did send me a message which resulted in a calm and rational debate continuing the debacle from the thread more like adults should, where he actually did acknowledge that maybe the answer wasn't as simple as "him being right and me being wrong" and that this was a result of us being used to different phrasings.
Date: 6/18/2014 6:12:09 AM
Both examples sound equally like Hitler to me.
Of course each word in a sentence as a meaning, that's why I don't say "my opinion is", because the fact that I am saying it shows it is my opinion, therefore making that part of the sentence meaningless.
Date: 6/18/2014 4:59:30 AM
eh, for me, the two expressions have different meanings altogether.
"my opinion is that meat is disgusting" = your opinions. Just an opinion.
"meat is disgusting" = I somehow automatically feel evilness emanating from the phrase, the desire of the one who said it to stir things up . Opinion or not , I see it as something said out of hate for meat . It's like you want meat exterminated from Earth.
A slightly bigger example:
"my opinion is that Jews must die" . Not many Jews will like me now. I could probably join a neonazi clan that does nothing else than shave themselves and show their butts to Jews. But nothing too serious.
"Jews must die" . Do I sound like Hitler yet? While an answer to the above would be " Your opinions are fucked up" , the answer to this one would be "CALL THE POLICE, A RACIST ANTISEMITIC BIGOT IS ON THE LOOSE".
I've been taught that each word in a phrase has to have a meaning. One word less will change the meaning. One extra word will also change the meaning. Heck, reading one word with a different accent can change the meaning (I think this only applies to Romanian).
I'm actively jealous on those who just say part of what they want to say and everyone else just knows the rest of the phrase. (especially Cockney people)
Date: 6/17/2014 4:51:28 PM
If I say to someone "my opinion is that meat is disgusting" it will have the exact same effect as if I say "meat is disgusting". You literally just phrased the second phrase in a friendlier way to make it seem like your point is valid. Without doing so (making the "my opinion is" the ONLY difference", the sentence has the same effect.
Still, instead of pointing at others, you are now at least acknowledging that at least part of the problem might on you instead of everyone else being wrong, which you were kind of doing earlier. Kudos on that.
Date: 6/17/2014 4:09:42 PM
his answer was disappointing. He practically confirmed he is "moderatrolling" but he's not the topic, so , back to what I was saying.
How am I supposed to make the difference between what you say and what you mean?
Let's say you have a bad opinion on meat. So you say "Meat is disgusting!" Let's consider that I do not know what meat is, as i'm poor and never tasted it (just assuming). Seeing you claiming that meat is disgusting will make me believe too that meat is disgusting even before eating it. Of course i'll have to eat to see for myself but I will already have the pre-defined idea from you that it's disgusting. Congratulations, you unwillingly enforced your views on me!
People who haven't formed an opinion yet are prone to be influenced by others' opinion. I say this from my own experience. And from the experiences of my family and friends. And people on the internet. Too many people on the internet. Especially when you say " meat is disgusting!" instead of "I'd rather not eat meat, I think it's disgusting".
So, once you've stated something, an opinion, I can do what the internet does with opinions. In short, discard them. But, if it doesn't really seem like an opinion, I feel it's contradicting what I say. And since I know what I just said is truth, and because of my own personal nature, I take it as an insult. (I probably should go to a psychologist or something. I know my problem but I'm not qualified to solve it. Now where to find one......)If what you said had the "i think / my opinion is/it's probably/maybe it's/it could be ", then the conflict wouldn't be, because, while opinions can affect others, the impact is minimal. But since it did not contain those words, I feared that others would believe it word by word ( call it paranoia but it happened to me IRL too. And an old Romanian saying says "he who failed precautions once will check for them even when not needed" ), and since it contained a lie about me, which i dislike, I wanted to prevent it. And it went downhill from there.
Maybe it's the fault of my mindset. I myself did once what you did here: said something without warning everyone it's just a harmless opinion (it applies in Romanian too. AND HOW!).... And believe it or not, I have to come every two months to the local police station for declarations because of it. So now I don't understand how come others still do it. I don't know how to feel about it. I put a barrier for myself because I saw it leads to unwanted consequences for me, but it seems that others, in this case, you, are not affected by these consequences, and I don't know what to do. This "it goes without saying" is an expression that I want to remove from my vocabulary , to remove this habit, while others seem to add this habit and have no problems.
Yeah. I still think he's very wrong, but that's pretty civil.
That's actually me when you're not around.
Right now, if I do a troll thing, it's because of my hate for you, because it's not my usual behavior.
You know, there are only 4 people on the internet which I really hate (you're the second, but the only one whose real name I don't know yet) and I have similar outbursts with them too. Why is it that only 4 people on the whole internet can get on my nerves with their mere presence, with a mention of their username?
Cause you take it as serious business. I'm not a JJJ fan but come on, it ain't as if he bans people for doing shit he does to, now that would be being a dick mod
Though I really can't see why people are calling you a troll now.
Because you're immature and hold grudges?
Because of that sweet white ass?
hahahahahahaha. That was perfect delivery.
Don't pretend it isn't true.
"sweet white ass"
well, it would be a compliment, but due to recent health issues I don't really have an ass anymore (not that I ever had one, i've been skinny all my life), so it's insulting for me, but hey, scientists naming new species after their grandmas are also insulting to me, so I'll just let that pass.
I literally do not care about you at all. I hope you don't continue to fruitlessly waste your energy.
Don't listen to 3J he's just trying to get under your skin! Never let the man hold you down brotha!
*Grabs popcorn and waits for inevitable backlash*
Nah, with our luck he'll just send a tasty PM we won't get to see :'(
Wait wait.... I think I remember this. It all feels really familiar.
This is the dude I had to explain the difference between an athletic sport and sitting on your ass all day playing a video game to two years ago isn't it?
I'm surprised he is still around, much less pulling the same crap. -_-
Ah well, I'll just eat some popcorn and watch the show this go around.
explain the difference all you want, professional gamers are officially recognized as athletes ( yes, exact phrasing).
So shut up.
The word "literally" also doesn't officially mean "literally" anymore, that doesn''t make it any less stupid.
but I use that word......
And the fact that this is official doesn't change your stance on the word in the slightest, right? I agree, and maybe now you realize why your articles of gaming being officially acknowledged as a sport hasn't changed anyones stance on the matter. No matter how official all this is, I still differentiate between "literally" and "figuratively" and I still don't view gaming as a sport.
This is offically my favorite thread of all time.
You like raising dead thing's don't you playa? :p
I think he was a necromancer in a past life.
Do necromancers believe in past lives?
If they do, and if they are right, does the soul of the person he's made undead go on and reincarnate, I mean, the soul doesn't stick around, right? Otherwise it wouldn't really be undead which wouldn't really make him a necromancer.
If that does happen, what happens if the reincarnated being meets up with his undead past self? Will there be a connection between a soul and a previous body it inhabited? Can it return to it's former body, therefore making the person not so undead anymore?
It's possible that some sort of lifestream is in effect, meaning that the necromancer can just pull a little consciousness and shove it into a body, just enough for it to move and respond to basic orders. Of course, the lifestream wouldn't explain direct reincarnation. New consciousness would, of course, be born from the lifestream, but it would be impossible to trace who was who in a past life, because an old consciousness would be dissolved completely into the lifestream.
Exactly the reason why I'm pro choice right there.
yep, you're drunk.
I wasn't when I posted that, but I sure am now. :)
I shall never let this thread die. It's simply too perfect.
Ethics? James, this is CYS, you big silly goose!
Given that we got guys raping cats or supporting eugenics on this site, I'd say necroing a thread for lulz is the least of the ethical concerns here.
That eugenics thing was for sake of discussion. Nobody bothers posting any cool topics on this site anymore. :/
I laughed way too hard at that, which led a classmate asking me what I was laughing about...
Sarcasm dots? I thought those were curiosity dots. Hell, there are so many dot meanings that you're much better off using a sarcasm font, like I always do.
Dude, the fox in your profile picture looks stoned off his ass.
What fox? I thought my avatar was a picture of a mirror.
Yeah, I know. I'm planning on changing it soon, though.
I think its cute
