Well its the internet, assume everyone is lying until proven otherwise, unless you are close with them or w/e. Anyways, try not to take a forum so seriously, I am not a model poster by any means but yeah it's all good dude, at least your thread is alive and doing well in the way it is structured now.
There are old users like ExpertEvan and Waterbomb so I don't think I was in a position to judge, and I have a real-life friend who dealt with stuff like that. It's not really a joke to some people. Like, I can't question people when they have suicide problems because I've experienced those and wouldn't ever think they're a joke at first.
I don't know Badass and don't know many users outside many of the former Wifi users who left Smogon. Maybe that's gullible but I'm just not the type to assume people are lying.
rofl you thought badass was a gay man talking about the 80s, dude come on
and the thread got the tag removed, because it is not a serious topic clearly, judging from how many joke posts there are
i know what you mean by elitist users, and i am not one of them. in fact, much like you i despised the elitist group and formed my own group of friends, but yeah smogon has mostly dissolved from that mentality today. and don't get so defensive dude, i never said you were stupid, i just couldn't believe you could take a post like that as legit. doesn't make you unintelligent, just a little gullible.
I am not sure what your customs on basic conversation are but
"man get that stick out of your ass" is not what I would tell someone if I was trying to tell them not to get worked up about something.
The thread does have a serious tag on it. I'm sorry for thinking there would be a genuine person who has suffered from the AIDS epidemic, tbh I was initially suspicious but who am I to make light of other people's suffering? I'm not a cynic so by default I give people the benefit of the doubt.
And you know exactly what I mean by smogon elitist users and you know who that entails, I am not the first nor the last person to bring that up. Please don't mistake me for an unintelligent person or at the very least a person unable to infer things.
man get that stick out of your ass, i was just kidding around. now that the thread doesn't have a serious tag to it, it's been going fine, so i don't understand why you're complaining? i am not sure who you are referring to as the smogon elitist users, but i can assure you i am in no way elitist lol. if i called you out on irc then it was just stuff like "i cant believe this gabe guy believed badass' post which was obviously a troll". try not to get so worked up man
