Doesn’t seem like we “get” each other, TDA. Which is fine. Most people don’t get me.
Relax, i assumed you were joking. No semi-functional adult would gaf about something like that.

that wasn't trolling. inco meant it. he made that thread thinking it was a clever thread, but then it wound up being a way to stroke the ego of everyone on team awesome and just looked foolish.

You can't grasp the fact that you were trolled because it doesn't fit in with your victim mentality. Gotcha.

okay, what? so trolling makes it fun and okay? i'm not sure what point you're trying to illustrate here.

so instead of the group being "awesome" it's a group of trolls then? cool story bro

If they were trolling her doesn't that make her the victim?

without getting into a debate on whether this even remotely resembles the truth or is an example of extremely one-sided revisionist history, it seems you were so unimpressed that you can recall this story 10 years later...

I wish I had a memory like that. I can barely remember the things that I actually care deeply about. and like you said, this social group is DEFINITELY NOT something you care about. so well done. thoughts/tips to improving my memory? ginkgo biloba? Omega 3's? Thanks in advance!!
Huh, I had no idea. I completely missed the creation of the first group. I may at some point have noticed that team awesome became team awesomer. But I didn't play in social groups back then.

By the time I noticed social groups, it was team awesomerest. And I looked at the member list and thought it included some people I like, and would enjoy virtually hanging out with. So I asked for an invite. But you know, if they'd said, "no" I'm pretty sure I would have been okay.

And it's been nice. It's the sort of place where erose felt comfortable enough to drop the aggressive posturing and be supportive and kind. It's the sort of place where I can bitch about something unrelated to the ao and not worry about who it might get back to. I assume lots of other social groups serve a similar purpose. We just thought it was fun to reach a silly round-number milestone and wanted to celebrate.

My only point is I'm amazed that you were trolled so hard that you are convinced it wasn't trolling.

Like, I've always understood why you didn't like certain people who poked at you relentlessly, but I never realized that you actually took what they said seriously.
