I think the one about the guy jerking off in a tent with his friends when he was in middle school is from off site

Didn't you say that?

The Taco Bell/Mexican one is from offsite. I pasted it from a comments section somewhere.

What is the quote
edit: literally got it upon posting this:
Quote
Everyone goes on and on about how much they hate Taco Bell, but they still go there because it gets the job done for a quarter the price of anyone else. Which is as Mexican as something can get.

That quote, as Curly said, is in the spirit of the Bore and deserves to stay. In fact, it's so good I thought it was a genuine Bore quote for years.

Someone several pages back suggested having Mods for the Mods, essentially an "Internal Affairs" group. I was laughing to myself thinking this is an overkill, but on further reflection NeoGAF/ResetEra are basically the size of a large virtual city that's as diverse as New York city if not more.

How is this newsfeed worthy? I mean, you could cut it down to this:

Quote
NeoGAF/ResetEra are basically the size of a large virtual city that's as diverse as New York city if not more.


But the whole thing?

Offsite:

Quote

Harassing a person because they play on wi-fi should really be a bannable offense on this forum.

What is the context of this? It's not funny on its own:

Quote

No, they exist because they do.

:confused

Quote
My next game is generally progressive and I do somewhat fear some kind of targeted attacks or review bombing.

But fuck 'em. My grandfather fought in a World War. The least I can do to stick it to some Nazis is release something full of acceptance and love.

Quote
Not to put too fine a point on it, but Era does a pretty respectable job of helping to police this industry. The previous thread may have actually saved lives because it dug up some off-site shit, thanks to the Trevor Project donation which we now know is going to still happen. We've been the instigating, central point for numerous journalistic moves, including -- but absolutely not limited to -- the original story on places like GI concerning this.

Post your credentials so I can sweep you. Being an MIT MBA grad doesn't mean much in my circles. Homie that's not even an HSW (google it). You want to bring up how certain credentials makes others invalid of critiquing how other may be misinformed, as if an MBA from MIT specializes in international social media norms. Let's hop in a group message with some mod and post some info. I can possible refer you to my employer after you get this work.

These are terrible.

I mean, immediately after I see this and it's OBVIOUSLY a Phoenix Dark quote:

Quote
We live in a society where women get paid less than us, are abused by us, and are taken for granted by us. The least we can do is eat their ass.

:sabu

And it's funny and in the nihilistic/cynical spirit of the Bore. The above quotes, how are they Bore-esque? How are they funny?

That's a good example of recent additions that just quote too much, there's barely a punchline in it and you have to know about the THQNordic/Child Porn conspiracy (I think?) that ResetERA.com convinced itself of and literally no one else cares about for the line about "we've been the instigating, central point" to have any effect.

It's probably better with just the first sentence about Era policing the industry. Like the one about it having the diversity of NYC that Cindi edited down earlier.

I'm generally more lax than this thread about offsite quotes in there, I think there's some decent ones, but I agree that some of the recent additions seem like too much has been quoted and some maybe need too much background info. Like the one about having "mod contacts" is a ResetERA.com quote I think, but it works because everything you need to know is in it, you don't need any further info for it to punch.

The wall of text ones are the only obnoxious ones, honestly, since they disrupt the layout of page elements below, pushing everything downward upon refresh randomly. So for me it's not so much whether they're off-site quotes it just happens all those ones are.

And I don't collapse the header area since I like seeing our mascot Nick Frost :hmph

I guess a big problem I've got is so much in the past, things were done based on community census. If we wanted newsfeed, someone would say it and then we'd all click like if we agreed or we'd all spam "newsfeed". In the past adding smilies was a community process. If it was good, we beg the mods to add it. Now it feels like Bork or whoever just adds things without going through the community and so much of what he's adding is from the shit thread, which many of us don't even read. So now we feel ignorant on what's going on in our own forum, which is used to be a tight knit place.

No bueno.

But then sometimes I put too much close to the edge and it drips, you don’t need to judge me for this  :'(

Because of this post, I got some strawberries out the fridge and poured honey on them. No mess, and ate them with my fingers.
