Just because you supposedly know everything about computers, guns, cars, and food doesn't give you a good reason to be a self-important oompa-loompa. That is all.

Pro tip: there is more information that people need besides whatever you think is cool.

hey check this out: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/tact

I think the fact that you lack the ability to sense or understand irony and sarcasm is more the problem. <shrug> Speaking of self-important, how are things in Neo's land of "I don't get it so it's wrong"?

(hint: synonyms for civility include what word?)

Medusa?

heh... well since this thread isn't really about anything I'll add something that actually requires a thought. xD

The game I play now is like the opposite of D3.

In d3 people hated me because they were actually skilled and because knew what they were talking about.

In this game they hate me because they're afraid that only I know. xD

In d3 people beat me because I was a n00b.

In this game they lose because they die thinking I'm a nuub. xD

In d3, elites would beat up on people they don't like with weapons that actually require skill, and they'd do it alone.

In the game I play now, they need 7 people to help them and still fail several times sometimes, and they do it with cheap tactics and overpowered weapons.

In D3, n00by weapons were frowned upon by people who had skillz.

In the game I play now, there are people who think they're good even when they use cheap stuff to win, and many can't even comprehend their own reasoning.

Sometimes I wonder if d3 would be better even though the netcode is the most annoying aspect of it.

Both games have people who hate me, and in my game not even the planes can roll. x_x both games were created by incompetent companies and they fell into obscurity. Both are dying (or dead) because people keep (kept) doing the same things; both groups didn't want to believe that's what was causing the problem.

So, you don't know what you got 'til it's gone. Better the demon you know than the demon you don't. See wut I did thare. I just gave that last one a new meaning. Razz

True story, bro!

I think there are people here who can see the antiparallelism and relate it to their own lives. It's not just about me.

Oh and bun, I never said everything that I don't understand is wrong. I do know that there are some who assumed I was a jerk and that I never cared to know. Do you even know why I never think it's funny?

So really, the common denominator is you, Neo.

Very interesting.

I think the common-denominator is you, Neo. Razz Like my brother says, apathy is the most powerful tool in your arsenal if you know how to use it (or something to that effect). Also "hate" is kind of a strong word for the internet. People can't really hate you until they meet or know you. Up to that point anyone expending that much personal malice toward an unknown is just kind of ridiculous. Take a cue from Riggs on Lethal Weapon: maybe people on the internet don't care for what I think, but I'm still here and "I don't give a fuck". Razz

I laughed at the OP! Who gets the "Self-Important Oompa Loompa" custom title? Very Happy

You think I don't care? Well that explains why you won't get off my case. Razz It also depends on what it means to be the common denominator in this case... I would elaborate on my thoughts about it, but I guess no one wants me to explain.

I also just read something and I realized something that sheds a little light on our little "situation" here... but I'll keep quiet.

Neo I think you missed the point again. In essence, Thorn said "Not caring is a powerful tool". You respond as if he'd accused you of not caring, when in fact I think he's saying the exact opposite. It's obvious that you care deeply... and that explains why people won't get off your case. It's ok to do your own thing, Neo - but if you want to be happy you need to understand that people are going to react to that - and be prepared to ignore their reactions if they're negative. I have a lot of respect for the fact that you continue to be the unique and challenging individual that you are, but not so much for the pity party.

Edit: Regarding the common denominator issue. Obviously you continually find yourself in situations where you are derided. On the one hand, welcome to the internet, that happens to everyone who opens their mouth. On the other hand either you are overreacting, or you are provoking a lot of what you experience. Or your overreactions provoke it. Or something. Not to be unbearably pithy, but allow me to once again quote Albert Einstein: "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Either accept that you're going to get the reactions you do, or change the behavior. <shrug>

No, Neo, no...that's not it at all. In fact, that's where you're being unforgivably stupid. "When in Rome, do as the Romans do" (or be treated as an outsider.) It's not about true or false or right and wrong, it's about you CHOOSING to be an outsider and then whining about it. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY respects a man who consistently and consciously chooses the most difficult route and then bemoans his poor fortune.

Man up or don Roman garb. Simple choice.

I'll tell you something, Neo. I am one of the good guys. In fact I may be one of the heros of the story. Very Happy Bunyip is my arch-nemesis, but he has his good points. You have one thing right: I don't understand you. I don't see how that's my fault, with the cryptic, self-justifying posts you content yourself with. Bulletin boards are for communication, do it or don't, but doing it half-way and then faulting everyone else for not understanding you... Can't you just return to posting things that matter to you, and your opinion on discussions, and then when someone responds unfairly (knowing that it's going to happen) you either confront it ably, let it roll off your back, or decide that this isn't the place to be?

It's not "changing to be like someone" it's "etiquette". OK, so we get that you don't feel like you should have to be polite. So why do you act surprised when people return the favor?
