were you having a bad day? your post sounded very negative and hostile, so i will be as unbiased and gentle as i can while expressing my opinions. hopefully, i won't burn any bridges while doing so. i also hope this won't be your final time posting. if it is, then i wish you a genuinely okay day at the very least.
first of all, people here seem to really dislike passive aggression. but the reaction to >>6
is surprising, because there wasn't anything technically wrong with it as a heartfelt goodbye message to an anonymous person who might have been the other OP. i wonder if this is because people rarely display sincere regret to random people in real life, and this tripped people up?
maybe to represent the tender emotion i was feeling at the time, the post would have been better understood if i added an emoticon?
i'm sorry if i caused any hurt feelings... :-(
as for our previous argument... i allowed you to have the last word. since you're back, i'll continue the argument.
continuing on from >>5
you misinterpreted my main argument, which was that new threads with fresher content like this one are better than old, large ones.
in that regard, your argument about the 'life and such' thread reaching the post limit does not logically follow, because our threads are very similar rehashes of that thread, with the difference being that our threads are newer and smaller, which serves my point. also the post limit is arbitrarily defined, and exists to keep threads from getting too big or stale, similar to a bump limit. and so you know, the bump limit is usually 300 posts on other boards.
points 1 and 3
also what about the existence of the recent random thought thread, which you have been ignoring talking about? it's older and it hasn't reached the bump limit, so if you really feel this way, then why didn't you post there instead of creating a new thread?
and if it isn't hurt feelings that's causing you to continue bumping your thread, then what's the reason that's causing you to do this? because what you're doing is selfish... two generals devoted to the same topic on the front page of the post office is obviously going to be suboptimal for the state of this board.
and i won't make new slice-of-life generals like this one. if you've read the first part of >>13,
i'm actually hoping this thread will cause both of our generals to die.
you are exaggerating. experiencing emotions is involuntary, and jealousy is an emotion present in all neurologically normal human beings. the mild jealousy i experienced was brief and is long gone now. anyway, it was mild enough at the time that it didn't cause me to bump my thread when your thread was still in its early stages.
and the point of anonymous boards is to openly insult and hate others without consequences. this is the case with popular boards like 4chan and the original ∞chan. people who don't do this are interested in the theoretical parts of anonymity, which are privacy and the unique communication aspects. but these people are the minority.
finally, despite wishing me a nice day and saying that you respectfully disagree in >>3,
please realize your posts have all been disrespectfully hostile and have actually made my days worse. >>16
was especially impolite, so my feelings were hurt pretty bad after i first read it...
