My First YAGE

Author
Time
Sorry to re-post this from another thread, but I've never YAGEd before ... and since I'm unlikely to ever do it again ... I wanted to do it right, with it's own thread. Yeah, I know YAGEing is soooo lame and such bad form. But, well, here's why ...

Well, where to start? How about with the fact that I’m not fourteen, I’m over 40. Perhaps you’re projecting your own age group onto others. I don’t really know how old you are, I’m just making an assumption. But whereas yours about my age is presumably based on my opinions, mine about yours is based on your weaksauce debating skills which run to namecalling on a constant basis.

Here’s some gems from the brilliantly mature Rob (stuff that would get you suspended, then banned from any decent message board):

I didn't want to come right out and call you a complete f#@cking jackass until I had concrete proof, but now I feel comfortable doing so.



And for good measure, because it suits the point I will come to presently, some mature remarks from you cohort in 14-year-old debate style of namecalling:

Differing opinions, you will discover when you grow past teenhood, are held by all sorts of people of different ages. Namecalling is pretty much restricted to people under 16 years old. (Usually under 9 years old, but on the internet, the maturity curve seems steeper.)

In any event, to foster a non-hostile atmosphere, most message boards are pretty strict about a no personal attacks, no namecalling policy. And that’s cause there’s a lot of incredibly rude and immature people on the internet, as you two have amply demonstrated.

And while it’s been fun for a while to diss back at you - without resorting to namecalling (fyi, Rob: even though I think you’re gay, I never called you “queer” or “fag”) ... but it’s grown tiresome really quick. I feel no need to read or post at a site where a zero moderation effort lets the worst-behaved internet posters have free reign. And I certainly feel no need to discuss serious stuff like warfare or political assassination with people whose debate styles runs to the type of quotes posted above. It's really not even fun talking Star Wars at a place so hostile.


Yeah, that means ... oh congratulate yourself boys ... you’ve run me off. Oh, whatever shall I do without originaltrilogy.com in my life? I’ll probably have to cry myself to sleep for a few nights, but I’ll eventually get over it. Maybe in a month or so. Or, more likely, in five minutes.


(YAGEing is such bad message board form. But, then again, so is allowing a free-for-all of personal attacks and childish namecalling. So what the heck? Might as well YAGE.)

Yeah, I can't think of what that term would mean either.

Oh well, I enjoyed reading your thoughts on a number of subjects while you were here, Obi. I agree that the namecalling was disappointing.

That gave me a good chuckle.

Seriously though, if you wanna leave, then leave. Don't make such a big deal about it, because all we have now is another "I'm leaving/mod bashing" thread, and it's just kind of annoying.

But hey, whatever floats your boat, I guess.

Ahahaha. That was my favorite.

I apologize, I don't really think you're a salamander.

I stick by all the other ridiculous quotes, though.

"Other message boards have a no-namecalling policy." Guess what, this isn't one of them. If you want to go crying back to your miss-manners board, go right the fuck ahead.

If you can't take the heat, get the fuck out.

I am getting the fuck out.

You people are frelling incredible. If you like a community where there's no respect, no decency towards each other, no boundaries of civilized behavior ... then enjoy the cesspool of being fucked to each other pigsty that you wallow in.

It's got nothing to do with Miss Manners ... it's got to do with human societies and those who are fit for them.


The internet is not all like this. I post at many message boards and they have rules for a reason, and it's nothing to do with Miss Manners. But you all just keep thinking how you like. You're legends in your own minds.

I will miss the few of you who treat people well for no other reason than they are other people on this planet.



And, duh, of course I shouldn't make a big deal of leaving. That's why YAGE threads are commonly bad form on the internet. But this is just the place for it, because there are no norms of behavior here. Just nastiness, immaturity, and disrespect allowed to run rampant.

I have better things to do. (But, 'natch, monitoring your own YAGE thread is part of whole YAGING experience that I'll never get to do again, so I'm going to do it here for sure.)




And I certainly don't mean to insult all of you. Many people who post here are quite adult and decent folks. But a few bad apples ... well, you know the rest.




Hey, and send me one of those shirts, WeShallPreserve ... you certainly ownzrd me with your 14-year-old ALL CAPS RANTS. Yessiree, you are the winning debater on this here internet. Don't bother growing older ... you're at the height of wisdom and maturity at 14. You're got some stiff competition - what with the other 14-year-olds whose debate style runs to namecalling. But I think you're the tops. What a great bunch. I'll miss you. What a regret in my life that I won't learn further from your sagacity and wit.



But it's a chance I'll take.

Obi,
Before you go PLEASE let me know what your thoughts are on the moon landing...PLEASE! I'm not trying to be a smart ass, I really want to know. If you would be so kind as to let me know, I will not comment on your opinion in any way.

HARMY RULES

you say you hate this place and post a goodbye, yet you come back to comment on people saying goodbye to you...
so in reality you just want attention.

its funny that you think this board is not monitored well. there are forums out there that would make your ass bleed the way your being such a girl about this.

you want to leave then get the fuck out, and take the rest of the whiners with you.

Obi Jeewhyen, I did not recall you ever, ever directly fighting any of my comments with historical facts. You think I'm the king of 14 year old ranters? Last time I recall, I do not know many 14 year olds that can speak in the way I do, (both in person and in type) and many 20 year olds can't even comprehend what I said. I was not ranting in the sense to get on peoples nerves, unlike you did, I was ranting in complete awe of what you said. Wow, you are no maturer than any of the bullshit senior and college druggys who beleive that since they have listened to a particlar radio show (no names) watched a particular movie (the Al Gore thing..ridiculous!) or attend a particular meeting of people who think thye are on top of the world and super smart! Wow...Wow..Wow...your comprehension on historical events awed everyone on this fourm, and I think I was speaking for many people going on my forced 3 post rant.
I'm glad your leaving, we do not have rules here and yet it is still a civilized fourm.
BTW: You have better things to do? I'll tell you what, I'm 14 and I'm pretty sure I'll never post a "Yadge" thread in my life....thats a waste of time-

Wow, a 14 year old giving an argument of sorts without using the terms fuck you,bitch,peice of shit etc....
WOW!!
(I'm being sarcastic

Also, Yes, I would like to know your position on the moonland, and for all you asking, how can a 14 year old post this on a friday afternoon? Yes, im in the libarary because I busted my ancle : D
So, after typing many papers and prepring for finals coming up--I have plenty of tie to waste.

Oh, sorry for the double post, but in response to the "ALL CAPS RANT" comment Obi Jeewhyen, you have to admit, everything (all the facts about WWII) I did say in ALL CAPS was historicly factual. That I can gurrantee, or I would'nt bet my WWII book,DVD and game libary on it.
Author

WeShallPreserve ... you are probably a smart young person, with a good grasp of history to boot. If you want to communicate your knowledge or whatever message on the internet so that's it's real communication (as opposed to self-serving), leave the ALLCAPS behind. Your message gets lost with the method that many people ignore.

Similarly, I have no idea if stinky-dinkins or rob have anything useful to say. Once childish namecalling starts, the content of the message gets lost with the method.


That's some free advice to take or leave as you will. But the baby is often thrown out with the bathwater when communication skills are rude. ALLCAPS on the net is considered rude. Namecalling is always considered rude. If you have a good message to communicate, doing so politely and with respect will get your message across. It's really as simple as that. There's no need to lose your head.

Damn you Obi, are you avoiding the moonlanding question because the answer is embarassing?

Listen, if all you're going to do is preach, Mr Perfect, then I think you better had just go! I rather think that if you can't brush off some over the top name-calling from the likes of Mr Dinkins and Rob 'The Gay Wonder', let alone give back as good as you get, then you'd better quit for your own sake.

I mean come on! That's hilarious! Unless you burn with compassion for your amphibian friends, how could you take that as a serious insult?!!

And, yeah, what do you think about the "moon" "landing", Obi Jeewhyen?
Don't you call me a mindless philosopher...!

Heheh, yeah some of stinky's lines were funny. I'm not without a sense of humor. I included all of them, funny or not, to demonstrate a pattern. "You're a fucking moron" is not comedic gold.

And, hmmm, I was alive for the moonlanding and JFK's assassination. I would tell you what I think about the moonlanding if I wasn't constantly insulted for my opinions, and I would participate in any discussion that stayed civil. But that time is past.


As to preaching ... I'm directing it, by name , to the people who do - in my view - need a lesson in manners. I'm not preaching to anyone else. Most people here behave perfectly well. If I haven't mentioned your screenname, then - - well, my comments are not directed at you.


It's not bad advice, though. And it can't hurt anyone to be reminded that namecalling is childish and rude, and ALL CAPS is considered rude on the 'net.

Oooops, there, I said it again. I'm repeating myself, so I'm hardly Mr. Perfect.




It's part of the grand YAGE tradition that the YAGER post in their YAGE thread long after they're supposed to have YAGED. I'm sorry if you're unaware of the traditions. Consider this a Yagication.

oh so thats what it is...

i thought you were pulling the sort of trick that little kids do to their parents when they're not getting enough attention. you know when they tell their parents they're running away from home. they've got their bag packed and are just about to walk out that door but they keep using some lame excuse so that they dont really have to leave.

are your bags really packed?
or are you hoping your parents will tell you that they're sorry and that they love you?

this is pathetic
