You're trolling, in other words.

You really think you're going to get any sympathy? Perhaps you should have thought of that before you burnt the bridge you live under, Man Hands.

I don't want sympathy. You're still trolling.

This is the stupidest thing ever. One of the purposes of the Pit is to try and piss off whoever you are mad at. Why else would you personally insult them? So there's no reason your definition of trolling should be verboten in the pit. So, obviously, your definition of trolling is not the one mentioned in the rules.

Heck, you know that calling a person a troll is going to get a rise out of them, so by your definition, you are a troll.

Maybe "Who's the bigger troll?" can be the topic of our next stickied discussion. Because it's not the topic of this one, I'm directing you to drop the issue in this thread.

Some of the best debates are rude.
Point taken. It was an experiment, I don't think I'll be doing that on a regular basis. Thanks for your comments.

Hey G, if you're still taking suggestions, here's another one that is not Pit-worthy:

Thanks, I am. I'll take a look in a while. Unfortunately, I've had a crazy couple of days, and now am playing catch up at work, but I'll check it out as soon as I can.

Remember when there was no pit? All these threads were somewhere else. Nobody died.
So, the question What's Pit-worthy gets my vote on: Nothing. Everything could be elsewhere.

No, and neither do about 95% of the membership. The Pit has been around since almost the beginning of the vBulletin iteration of this message board.

And on UBB before that.

Can't tell you about the old AOL version of the board.

You fucking bump a two year old thread just for that?

The nerve of some people. Using an old thread rather than starting a new one to expound their personal opinion about shit.

And your bump was almost a month after that. And my bump is almost four months after the last post.

Giving this thread a bump in order to ask a question. Is a thread like this pit-worthy?
http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/...d.php?t=718742

I ask because the poster doesn't seem to be aware of the fewer restrictions, shall we say, on those who reply to Pit threads, whereas if the OP had posted in IMHO or MPIMS, I think the boundaries would have been clearer.

Thoughts?

So....I did a parody thread on an earlier thread that I found very silly.

I was pretty much lambasted for it.

Love that word, BTW.

Was I out of line to do a parody thread?

Did I break any forum rules?

I want to stay in compliance, but also want to be edgy and funny and a bit of a tool.

LOL

Thanks, mods.
