Have you ever been pitted? If so . . . ? If not . . . ?

Have you ever been pitted? If so, what for? If not, what might you be pitted for?

To the best of my knowledge I have never been pitted. But if I ever am, it’ll probably be about some wise crack I made that was 90% in jest . . . and totally taken seriously by the person involved.

How about you?

People have complained about me in the Pit and elsewhere, but I’ve never been pitted in a separate thread. Maybe because I stay out of Great Debates?

Hasn’t happened yet but there’s always tomorrow.

As far as I know, I have not. As I try to eliminate my drunken posting, I believe the chances are diminishing that I will be. But you never know… If I earn it, I’ll own it.

I’ve never been pitted, and I think that’s entirely unfair. I tried for a while to get pitted by posting outrageous things, then I quit caring about what I posted and got even more ridiculous and still didn’t get pitted. What the hell do I have to do to get pitted in this place?

ETA: And I better not see Tripler getting pitted because someone thinks it’s me or i’m really gonna be pissed.

Never. And it is kinda surprising - I tend to be one of those you-like-me/you-DON’T-like-me people IRL. I assume it is because I treat the SDMB as something fun to do and try to only engage folks on that basis…

I was pitted once.

What was amazing was the pile-on! I even got private messages from posters saying they agreed with me, but that they weren’t going to get in the middle of that shark attack!

I got pitted once. Forgot who did it, but it was weak. The most memorable part of the pit thread was that the OP basically apologized for pitting me once it was clear how weak the pitting was.

Damn, I wonder how to find that thread…

I was pitted once. I said something insulting to Mississippienne, who was rightfully upset. The Pit thread turned into a discussion of the cost of living in various locations. I apologized.


Yeah, 4 or 5 times, mebbe. Sometimes justified, sometimes not.

As a dentist I usually try to answer dental type questions. There was someting on dry mouth that I commented on and then stated mater of factly that I had dry mouth due to cancer(radiation treatment). ** RockytheflyingS** pitted me saying I only mentioned the cancer to get sympathy. Many people defended me in the pit. Made me feel good.

Have I ever been Pitted? Let’s go to the quarry and throw stuff down there!

A ranting OP I started in the Pit turned against me and became a pitting. It was years ago and I don’t remember the details, some bullshit about how dare I judge people. I mean ferchrissakes it was the Pit before the rules were changed, what was I supposed to do in there? Congratulate people on their stupidity?

I don’t think I’ve ever been pitted. If I were to be pitted, it would almost certainly be by somebody who doesn’t share my fondness for Kesha.

Once. It didn’t go well for the Pitter. I don’t remember who it was.

I don’t remember who it was either, but the thread title LOACH IS A DICKHEAD FUCKING COP is burned in my memory forever. Burned like that thread did right after it crashed. :stuck_out_tongue: :smiley:

I was once pitted just for snoring!

Once that I recall, for scolding someone for doing something stupid and dangerous on a boat. I don’t remember exactly what it was. I apologized and it sort of fizzled out. (I wasn’t incorrect, but it was something that had happened when he was Young and Stupid, so there really wan’t any point in my scolding him, and it was kinda threadshitty.)

I feel like there must have been one or two others, but I can’t remember anything about them.

I was a frequent topic of conversation in the Snarkpit for awhile; haven’t been there in years to know if I still am. Or if it still exists, for that matter.

Oh, and for myself, never. I’m not controversial or even particularly memorable (really, can you think of anyone else here for 8 years, pushing 7000 posts, that you remember less?), and I tend to avoid the forums that generate the most heat.

You ain’t lived until you’ve been pitted! Still, I worry that one day I’ll find I’ve been pitted, probably for arguing too enthusiastically.
