Damn, Russel deleted all of his posts. There goes my fun I guess.
For those who never saw Russels post. Here’s what happened
He made a remark that he thought was funny in his own mind. It was a joke about “cheating on the fandom for another fandom”
Except it was wasn’t funny. It was something we all heard before from people who were serious about it. We can take jokes here, we get them all the time. But his was not one of them.
We know that only trolls make remarks like he did, nobody here is that zealous about this fandom so he got downvoted. That’s simply what we do to suspected trolls
When he saw that he got downvoted for not being funny, he backpedaled by making up this excuse that it was all part of some social experiment he was doing
I’m not fooled by that however because his “experiment” actually doesn’t give his any information about us here on this forum and how we roll, other than the fact that we don’t like it when people pretend that this fandom is “TEH BEST THING EVAR” which he implied in his posts.
To hide this, he pretended that we are all too sensitive to understand what his “expiriment” was about. He thought that he would “start a shitstorm”. Kid vastly underestimates us. That’s when I knew he was bullshitting.
Evidently he didn’t realize that this thread has a long history of debates and discussion made by some of the most level-headed posters in the forum and it also has a history of shitstorms that were caused by strifes far greater than a simple disagreement in opinion.
He also was clearly unaware that many people here, myself included are university graduates/students who have full semesters of experience in debate and study. We aren’t just kids who post ponies. Some of us also study and analyse the Brony fandom and culture so we have our own little facts and theories we could have shared with him too.
If he is doing some sort of experiment on us, I challenged him to bring it out and tell us all what he found so he could make us “devolve into shitstorm” with his oh-so-controversial findings. He fled the scene after that.
Some kid thinks he knows something about Bronies just by making 5 posts. (Bitch please, if he wants to know about Bronies he needs to sit down and listen to me lecture him on the months I have spent studying our own culture.)
I challenged him. He makes up excuses and runs away
I was bored and I needed the entertainment
