And a study of forcing users to employ their real names doesn't decrease the amount of bad behavior they perform that much, either.

<quoted text>I'm not gloating at all. Why would I gloat about giving you what you want? I said it from the first time I clicked the link that you wanted your account banned. I didn't even see what you posted to get banned but I didn't need to. You are extremely predictable my friend. You then shed some tears for sympathy against the big bad reporting crew. Your own cohorts are the ones doing the reporting and that is evident by the majority of the accounts getting banned. Why do you suppose nobody says who they are when they come back from being banned? Because the crybabies immediately hit the report button.
So condescending

I talked to Kernal Corny this very morning and he harbors no ill will, in fact, he asked me to give you this message

Just try saying the the white version with "ah" it wouldn't even make any sense, nobody says that, you're silly, so hung up on little details, so moralistic, so legalistic. Lighten up, I'm the Chris Rock of topix.

Isn't there a tea party board you can post on

But the dirt really shows on the black cars. I think you might want to refrain from explaining what a couple of those abbreviations are. LMSO I thought about guessing but I don't feel like making a new account tonight.

Did Drinkie slap you around with some good old fashioned lampooning and break your spirit?
Looks like the answer is yes.
I'd say it is.

Yeah, I know. It's one of those things you can't unsee, know what I mean?

At any rate, that explains why he is always crying saying I am gay bashing. Because apparently I am.

You know, it all makes sense now. Every time someone would tell a joke with toms name in it, he would accuse them of gay bashing. LMSO
