Do you mean, like, on this message board? I usually laugh. I keep a lot of people on ignore, so if I really don’t like someone I probably won’t even see the joke. But if I do, I laugh. In fact, I think some of the funnier people on the board are people I think are assholes. As for insults, I know it’s happened, but I never remember anyone’s name so I wouldn’t even know it was them.
Yes, although feel free to post any other stories you like.
I only mention because someone who did insult me (Called me a liar) and also whom I really can’t stand just posted something really funny. I snickered, and thought about posting something, but decided against it.
Some of my favorite posters have been guys who have insulted the shit out of me. I look at every thread as a new start. I do see some trend in certain posters to add meanings and motives to posts where the meaninings and motives have allready been expressed. Some of these posters I also enjoy very much but find myself being a little more cautious before I post.
Some of the real dipshits can be fairly amusing. If they are vexing me on a thread of mine, or attacking one of my posts, I ignore them. If they are amusing in another context, I will usually make a complimentary post. The joke’s the thing!
Even a broken clock is right twice a day. I’d never in a million years compliment a person I think is a dickhead on this message board, but I’d let myself chuckle every so often when they actually do say something funny.
I laugh, and I post that I’m laughing. I always let a poster know, hoping it will encourage them to keep coming with the funnies. I hate the idea that someone will argue with me in a thread, and then decide they don’t want to interact with me anymore. I wish we could fight and then laugh it all off.
Sometimes, I’m laughing it up and talking at a poster and then realize they aren’t really playing back with me…I wonder if we are ‘internet enemies’ and I just forgot, or didn’t notice or something.
If it’s funny, it’s funny and I don’t care who said it. But there are a very small number of posters who I can’t read anything of theirs without thinking “that’s that nut who ____”, no matter what they’re talking about. I don’t think any of them say funny things, but they do occasionally say things that aren’t crazy, and still all I can think is “crazy”.
