You're all a bunch of fucking idiots

The intelligent conversation that one would expect on this message board no longer exists. I am referring to the pro-war/anti-war posts. Instead of of simply posting your views of the subject, the debate has been reduced to "you're an idiot because you disagree with me." Despite my low post count I have lurked here for quite a while and am shocked at how these seemingly intelligent people have been acting. Because of the actions of a few idiots this message board has been ruined for me.

I will no longer be a participant on this board (okay, I haven't participated as much as others have, so to you it may not be a big deal).

And just so there is no confusion, I am calling all of the "warmongers" and "Saddam lovers" who insist on acting like bullies on a school yard "Fucking Idiots."

Go ahead and flame me if you feel the need. I will not read them. As of now, I am finished with this board.

Fuck You.

Look, Coldfire-- Removing you mod whip is one thing, but this is just too much.






I have taken to adding these little postscripts when I am joking because many, many people don't realize I'm not being serious. I don't think Coldie is a bird on a bat. I'm just commenting on the similiar topic of these two threads. And just to make sure the postscript is longer than the actual post--- How can we fuck you if you never come back?

Birds On A Bat-I get the distinct impression that you are upset about something. I sense a little anger, are you okay?

Allow me to use my new phrase (generously provided by Sauron) for the very first time:

Well, isn't that the pot calling the kettle Shirley...

Ruined? I cracked up laughing over it.

"I'm leaving forever."
(pause)
"I'm back to tell you I'm really, really leaving forever."

Never mind me. It's the TheraFlu talking.

And the absolutely weird thing about this OP is that naturally I wondered who was so mean to BOAB on the subject of "War with Iraq" so as to make him/her stomp away in a hissy fit farewell thread, but as far as I can tell, BOAB never even posted in any of the Iraq War threads.

So, gee, BOAB, sorry you're dissatisfied with the quality of conversation you found here. Maybe on your next message board you'll consider the possibility of actually jumping in and adding to the conversation, instead of sitting on the sidelines and grousing about how insultingly stupid it all is.

But, of course, since you are now "finished with this board", I guess you won't be reading this, so never mind.

BOAB - I'm leaving forever.

Dopers - So go ahead. We won't care. Just go. Bye now. You were stupid anyway. You're probably still reading this. We know you are. So just go. We don't care.

'all'

Hey, I found this enormously broad brush on the floor; did you drop is as you flounced, Birds On A Bat? Certainly someone answering your description was seen using it.

I propose a rule:

Anybody, Anybody who says they're leaving will be banned because they will likely no longer return to the message board or use that account assumably.

Hey come on, give Bats a break. You remember what life before puberty was like. Thought you knew everything until you actually had to get a job and live...

Attention in the room: Step away from the Nintendo..

Who said that? leave me alone, stop talking to me! AAaaarrrgggh.

We're all a bunch of fucking idiots? Well, at least we're having fun while we're busy being idiots.
But we all know what being fucking idiots can lead to...the spawning of lots of mini-idiots. We are legion!! Soon we will take over the world!

Hey Bats, isn't it past your bedtime? Bet your mom would kill you if she knew you were online this late. You need your sleep--junior high can be tough.

Definitely a good idea to warm your medication, yes, but don't scald your tonsils.
