This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Wait.. did I win?
« on: February 21, 2008, 01:31:32 pm »
When a significant contingent of the people I hate the most are suddenly agreeing with me, and making my arguments better than I have ever done.. (and yeah, I know, hate is a strong word, but follow me on this).. have I successfully gotten my point across?

Let me be clear, I think I get bonus points, because they aren't making these points in response to or in the context of an argument with *me* at all. They are making these points to each other. Independently. And loudly, as if they had just discovered them.

It's so perplexing for me! I almost want to chime in like a chimey chimerson and be like "TOLD YA!" or do the /Nelson "ha-haa" or something. But I think I might just quietly observe.

Perhaps there's hope for some of these people after all...

Would you be at all open to pointing out exactly where this is taking place? I'm curious as to what you...won...

Dude, I can't because I'm afraid if they take notice of me gloating they'll stop, and I am ENJOYING THIS HUGELY.

I disagree with everything that you've ever said, Abyssal Maw.

Crisis averted!  :)

Seriously, enjoy your moment.

I'm sorry, but in a situation like this, the best you can hope for is assured mutual destruction.

Maybe it's you that's altered. It looks like business as usual to me.

Yes, but I don't see the gloat factor. That's why I say that maybe it's you.

Perhaps you've misunderstood my true motives all along then!

Don't gloat, AM - just bookmark.  History has a funny way...and having quick reference to how what you predicted last time came true is often handy...

I have that thread SOOOO bookmarked.

It´s quite sad, though.

A bit ugly.
