    Glad I'm 30 then!

    Probably pushing my luck here but you have a link for the alt account posts? I didn't know about those until now and they sound hilarious whether he meant them that way or not.
    It was just one as far as I know, and it was seriously just rage/hate vomit.

    Seriously? I always thought he had kind of a tongue-in-cheek thing going on with his posts. Well the Gatsby posts anyway. Like I said I haven't seen this other thing, so maybe he did turn a corner once he decided to leave.

    There was no tongue-in-cheek with Gatsby. Dude was a legit autist overlord. The alt was just the cherry on top to prove it.

    ehehehehehe maaan if you don't know the truth don't say shit son. Usedtabe begs me to play videogames with him on a daily basis, even on his break he was sending me texts about how he was missing my K/D ratio and Grunchkin ain't even his main squeeze like that no more.

    Newcomers wont care. There is no "lesson" here anyway, Gatsby punked himself and then asked for no record of it to exist. That's truly bitchmade. I don't have anything against himself personally, be sure to remember that. I love Solgrim like the distant cousin I like to think he is, but his way of deleting everything he's posted here is just as bitchmade. You can involve yourself in bitchmade behavior and still be okay in my book, again remember this before you pin me for a sith lord speaking in absolutes.

    And I only know of this alt account through a screenshot someone linked me, they will remain nameless since they wish to have no business in this lame ass 'debacle'. No I don't have that link bookmarked or saved.

    And please don't think I'm posting this in anger, oh no...I'm actually smiling as I type it. Why should I be upset, when you've done so much hard work to prove me right?
    Your emotional state has no relevancy to me, BLOO has surpassed the human spectrum of emotions.

    Needs more Verdana. No idea what size though. Then again, the font difference helps to accentuate the gay.

    I assumed it was Arial, also this forum's font antialiases in different shades of the red and blue spectrum. You have to study every letter's antialiasing properties than manually change every appropriate pixel's color to reproduce text naturally.

    It's not advised.


    Also funfact, I have chrome zoom this forum by 110%

    EDIT: The size I used is legit, used GIMP's rulers and everything to match position and dimensions.

    He had a go for no reason and pushed it too far in insulting a very dear friend of mine. That's the only reason. He decided to keep it going and went way past the line. Don't invent reasons, it's insulting.

    You've made it sound as though he did nothing wrong and was treated unfairly.

    Saying that We're a bunch of twenty-somethings who will take any opportunity to throw each other under a bus? No reason to say that, nevermind the fact that it's wrong.

    Not exactly. You're only looking at one isolated piece of a larger whole. We went over this pages ago, reposted because you don't seem to have been keeping up;

Frankly, I was surprised that people got so upset over his hat comments. To me they seemed like well-intentioned fashion advice.
    Good place to start reading if you're sincerely interested. However this next part makes me doubt that.

    Your CD seems to have skipped a track here. Suddenly you're using words out of context, words from a conversation that you neither fully understood nor were part of, in a way that seems likely to turn the greater community against a forum member. Good job. You're already well on your way to proving me right. I could post numerous examples of this phenomenon happening to a number of other people but I won't. It seems like a super tedious thing to have to do, and everybody would probably ignore it once I did, so why bother.

    Just go ahead and throw me under the bus for having said that. You know you want to.

    Spoiler!

    What's ironic here is that Gatsby has a gold medal in bus throwing. He'd be the first one to throw you under there if the people around him demanded it.

    I really don't think a cultural issue is at play here either. Getting visibly and vehemently bothered by what another man is wearing (so much so that you have to harp on it for two pages) is lame as fuck, regardless of what you call soccer.

    Y'all are the ones that started calling it soccer to begin with. You people are the heretics.
