Meltdown in slow motion: Resident shitlords on thebore.com get slowly purged by their own autism. (self.Drama)
submitted just now by v_is_one_person

Barely thumbnail sketched background of deepest bore lore:
The bore is an older offshoot forum from NeoGAF. As the moderation and circlejerking there became more and more unbearable, banned semi-sane users and other shit stirrers found refuge in a smaller and more lax community. They could share their common history and elements of forum culture they chose to preserve and evolve into a somewhat unique sub-sub culture of their own. Most relevant to our interests is a permanently cycling, often locked and rebooted thread dedicated to laughing and mocking NeoGAF as it became ever more distinguished mentally-challenged fellowed. And also now, of course, Resetera. The original name of the forum was actually Evilbore, a direct snipe at owner, flaming trust fund narcissist, alleged MMA student (no really) and now infamous shower rapist, Tyler Malka a.k.a Evilore.

Past mods from GAF would pass through and share gossip and stories of behind the curtain shenanigans, including lolcows that were put through the ringer (some more gently than others.)

I tell you all this to do my best to orient you into the latest in this thread, a self contained meta r/drama in their own corner of their forum, where everyone laughs and gets along until they don’t and crazy fights break out, smug bait is thrown and everyone laughs at whoever eventually gets BTFO and either ragequits or gets banned.

It still has a leftist bent and they don’t have a high opinion of places like Neocigarillo on voat (filtered to babygoats) or Kiwifarmers, etc. Especially since it’s quite the treasure trove for gold sifters if you have the kind of dedicated autism to dive in and read and read and read, get to know the people and take notice of when former mods and power users show up and shoot the shit about the many past and ongoing shenanigans on both NeoGAF and Resetera. People like, say, me.

Okay! In this shit talking, left of center but fairly sane radically centrist forum there are a few (often refreshing) counter jerkers that, tragicomicly, build up a not entirely unjust grudge against getting shit on. Their die on a hill of “fuck you guys” since the moderation is fairly light until told to “stop this shit” with not much direct explanation - only the mocking of other users. The characters referenced here are eltoilate, recently perma banned, Optimus who caught a temp ban and Assimilate, our featured meltdowner, demanding an explanation of why he got banned for dodging their admittedly prudish word filter and saying “distinguished mentally-challenged fellow.” Hopefully I’ve explained enough to set you up to enjoy this one man standoff. Also hopefully their resident SRDines notice this thread somehow since sadly we cannot ping offsite and get their input. Looking at you TIMU.

 :curious

When you see some weeds on the side of the road, are you tempted to stop and snack on them? Do you daydream about ripping up trees with your bare hands and eating them raw? If you answered “no” to these questions, then, like it or not, you’re into vore.

They will love me for that which destroys me
  the sword in my dreams
  the dust of my thoughts
  the sickness that breeds in the folds of my mind

Sarah Kane, from The Complete Plays: “4.48 Psychosis”

Holy shit, this is legitimately the first poetry that’s resonated with me in years.

Random thought:

Given how popular Marvel/Disney is, do you think they will build the Avengers tower in NYC someday?

No.

Even if the bottom completely fell out on NYC property prices... No. :P

But a scale version will be a popular attraction at Disneyland/World.

Damn now I remember Nintendo's theme park and not only is it all probably super delayed after COVID, but even if it opened here I realistically wouldn't allow myself to go until 2022-2023... damn. :fbm

I remember when they announced it and I went, "Welp, that looks cool... 10+ years from now."

How little I knew back then...

Had a dream I was at an ice cream/cereal shop with Method Man who was meeting with some kind of social worker or therapist and Red Man was trying to get me to call him a pussy for trying to take care of himself  :mysterio

Caller: My laptop won't start!!!  :maf
Me: I see that you're part of [outsourced company].
Caller: Yes?  :maf
Me: We can only assist with laptops that we issue.
Caller: I got it from you guys!  And it won't boot Windows!!!  It just sits at the [manufacturer logo that happens to be the same as ours] screen! :punch
Me: OK, but I can't find any laptops that we gave to you in our inventory.  Are you sure it's from us?
Caller: YES.  I got it from YOU.  :gun
Me: Can you tell me the laptop name?
Caller: I don't know what that is.
Me: Do you see a sticker on it with our logo and a number?
Caller: No.
Me: I'm sorry, but you'll need to contact your company's IT or your supervisor for assistance.
Caller: THEY TOLD ME TO CALL *YOU*!!!!!!!!!!!  :maf

*hangs up*

Asked my boss if we ever gave out laptops to this group and was told no, but it might be worth checking with our department just in case.  Contacted someone who would know and he confirmed it.  He ended up calling her to tell her this and said she was initially very excited to hear from him, only to get colder and colder and speak in short sentences after being told it wasn't our equipment and we can't help.
