You know what I hate?
When people reply to my post to tell me how funny it was, or clever, or inspiring, without adding anything else to the thread.

I have a class of thirty six-year-olds who fulfill my sycophant quota sufficiently, thanks.
You don't need to do it any more.

The above was originally a post in this thread where a couple of people replied to my post without adding anything to the topic.
The first few posts below this one are also from that topic.

I asked for them all to be moved, as I thought it was decidedly unfair for any of this discussion to take place in Junsu's topic.

To elaborate a little:
Sometimes, when I post, people will quote it, and then congratulate me on being witty, entertaining and an all round good guy.
Most often, these posts are from people that I generally don't care two figs about. I have to assume they know this, because I'm not one to hide my opinions about someone, and are therefore making some kind of misguided attempt to ingratiate themselves with me.

It's not going to work. Because, as this thread makes clear, it's really fucking annoying.
I don't post in a topic to have people stroke my ego, I post to have a discussion with somebody, or for my own amusement.
If that excites or arouses you, please restrain the urge to ejaculate on someone elses topic with an irrelevent spurt of irritating praise.

If you really can't hold it in, use the rep button.

But please, please, don't fog up a thread with shit that literally nobody wants to read.

What does that even mean? Have you read the thread?
What an utterly ridiculous thing to comment.

Be quiet.

Doesn't it make you smile even a little teeny tiny bit on the inside to know that you possess such celebrity? I bet if we were a real-life community people would follow you around just to watch you do mundane things and laugh at every little quip you say. Ok I admit that is kind of pathetic.

I wonder how many threads people read that they wouldn't have read otherwise just because you're the last person that posted in it :innocent:

If it's any consolation you're not the only person that is on the receiving end of these types of posts ... Now come to think of it that's not so much a consolation as it is an indicator of the sad quality of some of our members' posts (and/or their ability to think and communicate for themselves).

Everyone likes there ego stroked occasionally, but if you stroke ones ego too much it becomes sore and wore out. I see a lot of people doing it in an attempt to bump up their post counts thinking that they are "contributing", but I hate when someone quotes something I've said and puts "This" more than when they tell me they liked my post (I still don't like that either)

I honestly don't see what's so special about you. You're a man behind a computer. Wow. /mindblown

I don't mean that to offend, and I'm sure it won't since it bothers you when people put their head up your ass anyways.
But there you go, not everyone is an obsessive follower :)

I don't disagree.

I have friends who have that kind of celebrity whenever there is a youtube event. It's extremely tiresome. You have no idea.

I still maintain the fact you look incredibly similar to James May.

Except he is more funny.

Also, when did you become a glorified babysitter primary school teacher?

Yes, you do. Those who know they are shit at something tend to shy away from doing it. You, however, consistently attempt to inject your (admittedly swoon-worthy) dark humor into practically every thread you visit. I won't belabor the point with detail, primarily because I envision an argumentative conversation between us ending in something akin to a stalemate while still making you appear the victor, but I firmly believe this post to be masturbatory; surely somebody as sharp as you are would know that this thread would only draw attention to the "problem", rather than ameliorating it in any way whatsoever.

I was just thinking about fame yesterday, and how I could never be a celebrity. People are always wanting to be your friend and wanting to touch you and take pictures of you. *shudder*I guess that's the price you pay for fame and fortune. I think it's always nice when a famous person is gracious and tries to appease their fans, but if it were me, I'd take their money and go into hiding and seem like the most ungrateful asshole to ever have walked the planet.

Yes, you do.


Well, of course he knows he's hilariously clever. But the point is, his amazingness shouldn't distract from the topic of a thread. It's almost as annoying as when a poster's stupidity derails a subject. If you're going to comment about how great or how sucky someone is, make the comment, "I LOVE YOU MISTAH J YOU MAKE-A ME LAUGH!!" but also address the original topic. "I am also annoyed! *shakes fist*"

It reminds me of when there is a topic like, "Post your pet!" and people just go in and post their stupid dog without saying anything about the animals posted before them. How do you expect to have a conversation when you don't engage other people? At least post a story about your stupid dog. Any thread where someone takes a test and just posts the results without further comment... is anyone actually interested? I mean really.
Also: when people say, "I haven't read all the posts to this point, but...". But... hey. You know what? Fuck you. If you had no interest in what others were saying, why should anyone give a shit about what YOU have to say?

I'm on my final training placement right now.

Surely somebody as sharp as you are would know that this thread would only draw attention to the "problem", rather than ameliorating it in any way whatsoever.

If I'm honest, I don't believe you can ameliorate a problem without drawing attention to it in some way or another. But you're right, I did think this would draw attention to the issue.

(And yes, I think I'm funny. I don't think I'm particularly funnier than any of a number of other funny people here, though.)

And you get paid a decent wage for difficult work like finger painting and playing in the sand pit? :p I guess there's also the additional benefit of having a lower chance of being stabbed compared with a secondary school.
