Theres a lesson here everyone needs to learn about that last shitstorm (Yes I’m sorry for still talking about it but it must be said)
Me an opspe agreed that it was the worst shitstorm we ever had. Even through it was short and fast, it burned hotter than any previous shitstorm before.
We came to an agreement that while Dac ignited the storm with his terrible joke towards JJ, the thing that really fanned the flames was the negakarma. If it was not for the negs. That probably would not have happened.
You all need to learn that Negs get taken too seriously here so watch what you neg! It does hurt your fellow forum member! I’m going to lay down some rules for all of you:
- DO NOT neg opinions you don’t agree with
- DO neg obvious trolls, but ONLY when obvious
- DO neg obvious spam posts, but ONLY when obvious
- BUT ALSO DO forgive people who did not intend spam so don’t neg them
- DO NOT neg in-obvious trolls. Unless you are absolutely certain its a troll like a warcraftnerd, then and only then do you neg.
- DO NOT NEG NEW USERS JUST FOR BEING NEW!
- DO NOT neg posts because everyone else is doing it, use your own judgement!
There. Follow these guidelines and maybe we will have less shitstorms, just maybe. I know that if we have karma trolls, they won’t listen to this, but if you guys do then maybe that will at least prevent such trolling from getting worse.
It’s sad that we need to regulate our own usage of karma in this way but that’s the unfortunate reality of the situation: people just can’t handle being negged
One more thing I want to say to you Bro
Another lesson we need to learn is that despite how much we try to love and tolerate, they fact of the matter is that we are still human and that shitstorm was proof of that.
We can try to love and tolerate, we really do try but to be honest that is a near impossible feat. Human nature will always get the better of us. I hope you can forgive those who negged you (the ones that weren’t just trolling) for hating on you like that, they were only human and they make mistakes. Even when they are friends, they still do that. But the good news is that friends apologize and you received several apologies already.
At the very least I hope you can forgive Dac, he is truly sorry and he just doesn’t know what went wrong.
Just for the record, when I saw you stand up for JJ I upvoted you.
Sure JJ made me facepalm but I was just glad he chose to discontinue arguments, I never downvoted him. So I wasn’t too happy when I saw everyone neg him for that and thus keep the storm a’blowing. I’m glad you chose to defend him.
