Who wants me to go away?


Tardgasm? Cuntasstasia? E? et. al.?

What is it worth to you? We have a precedent at this board of people being paid to go away. How much will you pony up to not have me pointing and laughing as you pretend to be good people?

Nobody here takes you seriously enough to bother paying you to go away when a simple "Ignore" will work the same. It's a bit of a shame, really. I don't remember you being such an amazingly regressive asshole before as you've been since 2015 or so. You stepped right off the cliff. Sad.

I'll pay three Pachinko balls and half a pack of Camels for you to throw yourself into a volcano.

Who are you, again?

I'd rather see people refute you with counterarguments that go right over that festering boil that serves you where normal people have a head.

I'd like to see you leave. The board would be a better place without you.

But I'm not going to pay you. I did however report you.

This might be the most pathetic thread I've ever seen, which is an achievement in and of itself.

If you're really hard up for cash, I'll give you ten bucks to take that old mattress out of my garage.

I agree with this. You used to be different. You were always a bit of a dick but it was entertaining and occasionally useful. You've seemingly fallen on dark times in your personal life and you need to fix whatever is broken.

I am well aware of my own obscurity but I really don't know who you are either.

I don't wish anyone to leave this place even for those who have treated me unkindly or unfairly.

I think there is a discussion on nihilism going on somewhere around here. I remember telling to myself that I don't matter several years ago. The words sounded too harsh at first, but then I repeated them a couple of times and enjoyed the way my inflated ego got purged from my body because I suddenly and unexpectedly felt somehow healed although I had never felt ailing before. Maybe it was a psychological experiment or maybe it was an epiphany, like a religious experience or something. I don't know. What I know, for instance, is that nobody cares whether I leave or continue to post here. Including myself.

This post from another thread seems strangely appropriate.

P.s. - In order to see what the whole hubbub was about I clicked on View All Posts By Scumpup, which is how I found that one.

Pay, no. But I’ll trade you straight-up for that guy who always won at gambling and dropped his prescription meds or something - forgot his name but found him entertaining. Or maybe even the pyramid guy.

Existentialism: Not Just For College Freshmen Any More.

I use principles of existentialist therapy in my practice every day. The most beautiful and freeing idea I ever got my head around was "I deserve nothing and I am going to die."

I do have to be careful how I present that to someone with suicidality, mind.

I just clicked on this post to see if there was some information about who you are. Hoped there would at least be some links to interesting weird/dumb/insane posts. But no.

I see you've been here since 2003, but I don't ever recall seeing you post before.

And people say this board is getting too small.

Well I remember seeing some of your posts and I'm a fucking moron, so either there are a lot of disingenuous vipers posting in this thread or maybe I'm on the upper end of the intelligence spectrum on this board (the best money is on the viper option).

Stay or go? It's your call, but if you feel unwelcome why would you want to keep posting? The Pit brings out the worst in people, so maybe stay out of here most of the time, and expect the worst when you wander in.

It was a guy whose name was something to do with frogs, iirc. And it was $500. I never found him overly annoying, personally. Not compared to some of the jerks we have around these days. Not to the point where I was reaching for my wallet, certainly.

The OP, otoh, is just a tryhard.

As I recall (but for some reason cannot seem to verify at the moment), the offer was made by a member named Liberal to one named pseudotriton ruber ruber.

I found the incident both embarrassing and amusing and I did my part to egg them on even while mocking the idea.

The original offer seems inaccessible at the moment but this post has links to where it used to be, at least.
