I think this is true. "TRUE Snafu" sounds pretentious, though.

I didn't say it was stupid. I said it was gay and sucked. Also, opinions.

I think "The True SNAFU" might only sound pretentious to people already on-site, but that's just me.

Just title it "Porn Forum" and you'll get traffic like you've never seen.

And to keep up the appearances sticky the sexy thread.

some kind of ironic "ALL PORN ALL THE TIME" and then when you click in at least five stickied threads saying "DON'T POST PORN" sounds pretty funny.

No that's actually incredibly dumb.

I feel like it would attract the wrong type of traffic.

Dorian, I'm beginning to suspect you have some sort of animosity that you want desperately cleared having been so far this passive aggressive as to say "i don't care except for nostalgia" when clearly the nostalgia you long for is accessible by the archives via search: it is the only place you can even confirm the nature of your nostalgia.

Do you want to talk about it legitimately? Do you not think it's an issue?

Or would you rather me actually outright condescend to you and gently walk you through patronizing motions on how I described irony correctly, being a stickler for it (which you would know if you'd continued to participate in the community you once loved but no longer do because that form of the community no longer exists)?

Because see, I disagree with you entirely on the subject. Irony does in fact make dumb things funny. I can point out examples if even only you were to provide a list of the things you consider funny, on a purely structural basis, even with you desperately cherry-picking things you would decry unironic completely. Ironical reinterpretation of concepts is a major player in how things are considered humorous rather frequently. All base sarcasm, for example - which can be used humorously. See, this is the beginning of me condescending to you, because I am not sure if you're being passive-aggressive ironically or unironically yet. I'm giving you a golden opportunity to come back at me and say, "Haha, idiot, you're missing my point entirely."

I'm extremely interested in how I've done that, so as to better address your regular grievances with my methodology. And that's not me condescending to you. I just don't know if you believe me or not.

And while I'm in a better position to discuss things with you, I simply can't be sure as to whether or not you WANT to give a shit or not. For all I know, I might be drawing a line in the sand that you're eager to cross. I have no idea. Surely however, you remember what Ferris Bueller said about Cameron as one of the primary tonal themes for the character, do you not?

Don't be too mean, or he'll hate you back, and he'll do it in a way that makes sure you know you're not as good as he is, without being directly confrontational.

Poe's law would make even the best laid and intended irony naming this place the "porn forum" irrelevant.

Should the swelling in your penis become painful, apply a topical medication in form of a layer of fresh young female breasts, to ease the swelling.

I can't remember a time where I didn't hate Dorian.

It's a special relationship.

Look guys, I don't want to barge in like this, but we have to focus here. I'm not supposed to be involved in this, but Dorian is besides the point of the topic. You guys may be doing things right here since this is the Spam forum, but we all have important things to do, and the situation needs to be dealt with as soon as possible.

I believe also that Spam has made us all assholes and jerks. I don't want to say we have to change our attitude, but what is being done to Dorian here is an example of why this forum will rarely have a visitor who will actually interact with the users beyond the RP forum.

And because of things like this, I don't think that the name Spam can no longer be used anymore because of our attitude; for some reason, I find that almost every newbie tends to be on the bad side of most of you guys, and this forum makes me want to make an analogy of Spider-Man and the Symbiote. And If that's the case, then I hope you guys are at least responsible enough to not abuse your privileges as moderators.

But we gotta focus here and takes things a bit more seriously.

I concur with Calek's assessment.

I think Spam treats newbies very well. From what I've seen, some users are dicks, but a lot of others give good advice and are fairly warm.

This whole makeover does seem to be dragging its feet, though. Does it even matter? Is registration re-allowed?
