Who are these elite posters and how do I become one? Is there an application? A snide remark entrance examination? I am willing to jump through HOOPS to be in the "in" crowd. Seems so cool. I could be just a hanger on. A gopher if you will (Pushes back her horn-rims in excitement). Please oh please, you're all so hip and I am such a fan. I will end now, all this stimulation is making me wet myself.

Hmmmmmm in addition to my proposed rant/flame forum; I would also like to propose a "I made a alt just to be a troll" forum.

One should keep in mind the number of posts one has made or the join date for the forums don't reveal the age of one's Second Life account.

Morgaine's start date is January of 2005, not likely to have been done then in order to make a statement today.

Simple:

1. Be as condescending as possible
2. Act smarter than everyone else
3. b*tch slap anyone who gets out of line
4. Create troll threads designed to create acrimony
5. etc.

There are at least a half dozen here who meet all of these requirements and more. I'm sure they'll be able to help you.

So confused. Then again, I am always confused. I make an honest plea to the forum gods to accept me into their fold and I am either called an ALT or a ..wait I have to flip back and see what the word was. Okay, I'm back..a troll? I think troll is okay. I mean they eat people with sloppy slobbery-esque-ness and plenty of bone crunching action...but UGLY, I am not sure I am happy with being called ugly...rats.

What is wort wort wort? Is that like neener neener neener? I just want to know if there is tongue sticking out involved. I am obsessive that way.

I did not mean my initial post to raise any hackles. Don't get your egos in a big old twisty wedgie. I just meant to have a laugh. YAY FOR ME

Rule one:
Do not feed the trolls.

Rule two:
When in doubt, see rule one.


Simple, aye? :D

Figuratively speaking, if you ignore the game because you either don't get it or you want to do your own thing—and set up your own board—the rules are completely different. :)

Do I understand some of what happens here? No! Do I attempt to? Yes, but if that doesn't work out, I'm better just having fun. :)

When I think of "elite" I think of Spartans, like out of Halo and then I think of Red Vs. Blue and it just gets too funny from there. :D

"Troll" in terms of Internet postings refers to the verb "troll" (not the noun). It's not a slobbering hob-goblin under a bridge, it's a line and tackle "trolling" the forums with "bait" on the end that no one can resist.

It's the practice of throwing a smelly fish into a room full of cats, more than the actions of the percieved ugly. :)

You have to smoke cigarettes in the bathroom with Blue Linden and have your alt steal Aimee Weber's panties.

OHHH, so trolling ...as in trolling for olives or trolling for compliments...GOT..CHA.
So why was this trolling?

I haven't an alt so I can't pantyraid I guess. Although..there was that time in Athens, GA when I had one too many mint juleps...man were those cross-dressers mad, panda..you remember how you threw me out?

Still no good, usable input on how to become as sarcastic as you all are. Let me see...hmmm.....

1. Give up the last shred of your dignity trying to gain the approval of some nerds on the Internet.
2. That's about it really.

Welcome to the elite, Dogspot! You have met all five criteria. As soon as 1.7 arrives, I'll be sending you your spinning beanie hat.

I'd suggest that you meet the criteria as well. You can keep the hat.

Neener, neener.
