So just because he’s your friend or something means he shouldn’t be disciplined?
If he refuse to listen to reason then why should we not take action?

No. He’s not a personal friend of mine. I said that I know who he is.
And based upon that information, I can tell you that he honestly wasn’t aware that he would seem like he was calling attention to himself by talking about followers.

Taryn, you’ve gotta take a deep breath and stop trying to legitimize this into some kind of a crusade. You blew up. Realy badly. You incited a flame war. And you obviosly have let your popularity grow into some kind of a head trip.

Chris.
There is something wrong here.
When he first came here, by the way he wrote, by the way he expressed himself, by the way he seemed to “take over” in the comments and then by creating strange topics with strange explainations that didn’t make much sense (at least, to me) on his intentions or what he wanted, yeah, we had legitimate reasons to think that he was a troll.

Was it some kind of experience to see how we would react to him ?

He clearly said “I don’t care about memes, I want followers”.
You wanted us not to react to this ?

I’m sorry but here, I’m with Taryn.

There should never be such subjectivity here without some explanations. Never.

Sorry i watched you talk about me and my comments taryn was the first to comment on me thank you again and say cool story bro i didn’t care to know what a meme is right but i still have just as much right to this site as you and anybody else do and see how you Tomberry says “WE” you already knew your agenda is to keep it a closed circuit from any one else i came in with my own feelings i expressed them of course for responses and discussion i just feel that some people read wrong and took offense to me as a new user.. I know a friend of mine who administers the site so i decided to check it out and see what it was about and when i got responses i was excited about the site and i know a little about its popularity, but wow some of you guys are intense sorry i cannot conform.. well i spoke thank you for allowing me back on the site Chris and i will not respond to any more comments about Tommy Mims a new user now a Jr. researcher by the way what does that mean and i started a forum about the politics about knowyourmeme.com i need answers can someone be a welcoming member to explain them to me.. LOl

I also agree with Taryn on the matter. Creating 4 random threads makes no sense, and it’s like pollution. It tastes nasty, and it just gets in the way. I gave up on KYM in late August, but I returned because I was still willing to attempt to preserve the site. I consider it part of my duty to do what I can to stop the n00bs, trolls, and the like. From what I can tell, Tommy Mims is doing it for his own lulz.
+1 vote for Taryn.

You guys are seeing a noob and calling him a troll.
This site is not about ganging up on noobs.

Did it take me that long to make that post? Let me look at this again.

Ok. Just keep the randomness to a minimum, please. I’m still wary, but I will be leaving Tommy alone for now.

If we handed out bans to all noobs, or just to users with annoying habits, then many of you would have been banned already. But we’re not going to be fascists here. Hell, there is plenty of other irrelevent chatter happening in the forums that’s not even meme-related. And it’s not like he was creating threads linking to his twitter account saying “PLEASE FOLLOW ME” he was starting threads asking questions.

Well, it did seem like trolling. I apologise if any harm was done.

You seem to use the same excuse “He didn’t know what he was doing” all too much.

I’m way late to this thread, but I’m suprised that you guys flamed Tommy Mims for being new.

You guys didn’t do that to me when I joined 2 months ago. :p

I want to really settle this.
Tommy Mims wrote a topic, asking questions, but he wrote it badly enough, with lack of punctuation and words badly placed to mean something else, or having seemingly double meanings.
The first topic, HackerOnHacker anwsered, many other did it too without… “harming” him.

Then he created another topic, and another, continuing with some badly grammar habit, and Real Genius, Taryn, Tristan, me, some others, have been confused by this strange way of writing, even in his answers.

Chris, we have been confused because of this.
We are responsible, but Tommy, you’re a little responsible too so please, Chris, don’t defend him so much.
End of story.

Thank you.

Tommy, you’re still welcome here.

Now, I think we can move on, can’t we…?

Well, the question threads are a bit abundant. They always seem like a nuisance.
Add question section for divided discussion board to the to-do list. Yeah, a meme section, a off-topic section, and a question topic within the off-topic section.

its not your grammer thats it i don’t judge, but now we know who do move on..

Nov 29, 2009 at 04:39PM EST

Tomberry, no offense to Redspear, but he isn’t exactly Merriam Webster. :p

I’m not sure the grammar issues are the problem.

Why would that offend me?

@taryn he undid the ban so drop it.

@Chris im not siding with you or taryn but i do agree with Chris on the fact that he was just a noob and we flamed him when we should of showered him with the right thing to do.

@Tommy if you want to be friends then learn the ways of the website and don’t insult people.
