IMO, they are both pretty stupid -- certainly not worthy of front-page news.

Huh, I didn't realize this was the "You must not have our own opinion DBSTalk."

I thought the video was a boring and a waste of time. I would expect a video link posted on the main page of DBSTalk to have more value. My opinion, not trolling.

Maybe you should watch the part about having a high post count doesn't make you smarter.....(which is where I turned it off)


I just asked a question, sorry. :shrug:

I didn't realize this was the "You must not ask questions DBSTalk." :rolleyes:

I'll be sure not to ask you anything ever again.

In the video, it claims that "fanboy(s)" are a subset of "troll(s)".

Since one can't call someone else a troll without violating forum rules, the same should now hold true for an individual or group being labeled fanboys should it not?

Precedent has been set.

:lol: And posting "I agree" is covered in the post-count portion of the video ... :P

By the way, I agree as well. Love and marriage, fanboys and trolls ... you can't have one without the other. If troll is "pejorative" and not permitted, then so is "fanboy". It's dismissive and meant to incite, and in no way should be condoned as acceptable behavior. Forum etiquette, indeed.

I see what you did there!

:lol:

The funny thing is that without some of the off topic and shenanigans that go on within most forum communities, forums just soon die. The old timers of the forum get sick of the same talk over and over and helping with the same noobie questions and thus need a way to vent a bit of steam and have a bit of fun (a reason to come back)...thus some OT talk and little things that go on between members.

I have seen lots of forums that are over moderated and just turn into graveyards in no time :(

Luckily I think we have a good balance here :D

Mandatory?

Are you sure you want to be forced to view something. If so, who decides what you are forced to watch? :nono2:

I was wondering when the string would get long enough. Now I know and knowing is half the battle (there has to be a G.I Joe fanboy out there somewhere)..

I'm confused. The film suggests that post counts do not represent how worthy and valuable the poster is, in fact the opposite is true. Yet the respected moderators, typically have the highest post count. Hmmm:confused:
