At this point, can you just stop being an asshole for absolutely no reason. The only gain you are receiving is your own satisfaction, the fact that no one finds you humorous or witty (i saw you fishing for likes with your snack pack joke aimed at Joey) simply means, you're being an asshole to be an asshole. You're exactly what's wrong with this community as of late and why I personally have no interest in the site anymore. You can't do anything without someone being a dick, and unfortunately unless we as a community become more strict than we already are, you'll continue to post and be a dick for the sole reason that you have nothing better to do.
All of this negativity towards players, especially as of late is disgusting. Me and my friends used to troll, or make fun of someone being swept, but it was always in a joking manner. Things have changed so much since I started playing the game, now people are just douchebags to everyone. I don't get it at all, there's no fun it for any party lol.
I usually don't say anything about fake outrage post, but this one bothers me a lil bit.
So what you are saying is that a shitposter (with less than 100 posts) and blatant troll, that nobody likes or knows, is exactly what's wrong with the community. That doesn't make much sense, or any sense at all, but ok.
"All of this negativity towards players, especially as of late
This happened 3 years ago. For context, I got a flinch against Windsong early on, which helped significantly, and he crit the Pokemon that was sweeping 4/6 of his team, which benefited a ton from the flinch. He complained, I complained; nothing beyond the usual, it was semis of playoff so everyone was a bit excited. Wish I still had the logs of that match
(there's a lot more, including non-deleted posts)
I also remember getting shit from Scooters, specifically Ace Matador, earlier in the season, because "only scrubs used Electivire" (RU) and then winning 5-0 comfortably after Electivire killed its intended target. jaja
I feel like there was some negativity there. But hey, I was just a PO random playing his first SPL getting shit on by well known players, so who cares? Definitely not you
Where were your complaints about the community back then? too busy stirring up the pot?
Just so you know, that event was the reason why I didn't start contributing to UU with koko back when Jabba, who also talked shit in irc, was still leading the tier.
I'm sure that if you try hard enough, you'll find plenty of similar crap older than that.
There are assholes in every single big community, this includes Smogon. Assholes here are nothing new, but I'm sure you know that because you used to be one of them. (eg: "let's harass e-girls because I think they are dudes. But it's fine, we are ONLY JOKING")
Maybe you changed, but the community hasn't changed. There are assholes now (CTC is in East, so I'm sure you well aware of that fact) and there were assholes before, but the majority of the community is composed by normal people who just want play / win. Shitting up on the entire community just because this particular situation affected someone you like makes you a biased asshole.
The "Smogon sucks now; it used to be better when I was active" circlejerk is annoying. It completely ignores that the majority of the playerbase is as good as ever, and that the staff is regularly cleaning up threads to deal with the few assholes.
PS: If I had actually done anything wrong in my game, I would had gotten a reply here http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/smogon-premier-league-3-semifinals.3463558/page-10#post-4154071
