Whatever.
Not everything can be perfect, I say if you can't beat 'em, then infiltrate one of your own!
But all humor aside, I think that the anger in this place is getting really agg******ng, when intelligent conversation starts, people get banned. It happened before, it'll happen again.
It's a shame, because despite liking this place a lot, and the majority of the people here, I just feel like all the coolness has been blown out of this place at times. Sure, now and then, people will get to thinking and post something good, but the thread never lasts longer than a week. Whats are most responded to subject? The fuckin What would you do Game. I mean, if that's fun, go ahead, but couldn't you at least fucking contribute instead of just post-pumping and spewing random shit all over?

Me, I give up trying to make intelligent conversation here. Whenever I try to start some type of thought-provoking thread, nobody reads it, and I've seen others die as well. That fucking blows. Hard.
If you're all so goddamned intelligent (and you are, I know), or at least think you are, than fucking say something interesting. I've tried to set an example and I've tried making the peace, and God Forbid, I even put my own fucking rancid opinions on the table, but only a few if any, people respond to what is obviously a bid to save these forums.

Sorry, I'm fairly intelligent, and despite being a wise ass, and a bit of a weirdo at many times, Despite being sarcastic as hell, I would just like to see this place redeem some of it's intelligence.
Is that SO fucking wrong?
So sure. Bizz for Mod. Whatever. Just don't shit on my back and tell me its raining.
BIZZMOD!

Yeah, but how can he know if he's gonna like it or not without reading it first?
I say we should all give every thread a rating as to whether or not Fickle is likely to enjoy reading it. Let it go from 0-5

0 - Pissing on head stuff
5 - Fickle needs to know what this thread says

Fickle can then see all the ratings and decide what threads he should read.

I'll start the ball rolling by giving this thread a score of 2 - maybe a mod can put the 2 in the subject so the score can be seen without having to read the thread. That could be Bizz's job

It's whatever you want it to be.

w00t. This topic should be a 3 since it's mildly amusing. Especially my supposed "look at me" post that has nothing to do with anything.
I just hate to see this place fall down and die, and I feel as if I can see it coming.

It's been falling down and dying for some time.

And these people are only back to provoke its death.

Because obviously they sure as hell aren't here for the atmosphere.


And Fickle, I agree with your first post.

I don't like the rating idea. I just know that I can't change the state of this community. I've tried. This is bullshit. I give up trying to stimulate thought. From now On I'll join the legions of pumpers who talk about waffles, cheese, and start threads like "I had 53x0r5!! |/\|007! "
Or how about "Think of a number between thirty five and 38,445,798,595."
?
I will never, ever ever try to stimulate thought here. Ever. I herby give the fuck up. For thought, I will turn elsewhere. For actual conversation that doesn't involve a chimpanzee and a waffle iron, I will go somewhere else.
If you choose to follow, follow my sig.

I'ven seen some Bizznatch's post...
I think he will be a nice mod....
I seen him a lot around here...
I think he will moderate "moderatly" the forums....
A question, though: "Who moderates the moderators?"

But that would imply another mod is gonna be insatalled, which would mean there'd be another mod. As we've seen there are already screeds of mods. One more would be one too many. Mods would just be too common, and we'd have no respect at all for any of them (Putting an end to the great deal of respect currently shown to all members of the Wa forum moderation team). The place would go completely downhill.
With there being more mods, all us skanks who still aren't mods would appear even skankier.

Take heed, making more mods would bring forth many bad things !!!!

Unless said mod is me of course. I'd be a crap mod, I'd dissapear for months at a time, and generally wouldn't do anything at all. I'd love a custom title though

I'm with prodangle. I would love to have a custom title

as for fickle. I have hardly ever seen anything intellectual posted on these boards. and if there was some intellectual thought then some yacko posted something relevant but idiotic and totally changed the tempo of the thread (this is usually me if I see a chance) I never start posts with any intelectual value in them. all of mine are about jokes and crap. I do hold vast ammounts of inteligence although there is never an opportunity to show it because most of the stuff here is bull. I see the WA forums as a playground, if you will, it isnt a classroom where you're going to learn things. people come here to get away from the stress of the job and the 8 hour rush-hour-on-the-freeway jaunt. at least thats what I see. I'll probably go to one of the forums in your siggy just to torment you. peace Deh cheezman

I agree with jon_joy_1999 though. If you want intelligent conversation, don't go to the general discussion forum on the website of some media player. This place is, always has been, and always will be primarily for talking crap. You might find the odd nugget here, but that isn't the purpose of this board.
You'll find wannabe pseudo-intellectual discussions elsewhere :P

It just bothers me that I have seen intelligence in this place, and I too have joked in serious threads, but I try to contribute some real thought on the subject. It just seems that the place is falling down, and gaining speed. I like it here, I don't want to see it die. It just pisses me off that well thought posts don't normally recieve the time of day, much less attempts at understanding.
I get home from work and I look for some mental stimulation, not just a place to tell dick and fart jokes.
