I remember joining a game with one friend and he was speaking to someone about me and said, "Yeah, he's really hostile sometimes." Which I thought was funny because I consider myself easy going, just flat-out blunt.

Back on topic:

There's actually one person on this site I try to avoid based on some of the previous posts of his that I have read. He seems like such a **** that I go out of my way to avoid confrontation with him. The majority of people (unless they're friends of mine) I don't label in any kind of way.

LOL, who is this one person. Everybody on this site seems to have this "one person" even "the person" has a "person" they don't like lol. I just confused myself with that last sentence :-P. I don't hold a grudge about any bad comments said about me by someone, I just forgive and forget lol. Except you know that one "person".

I'm intrigued also, shall we start an investigation? Maybe it IS Vlad. We'll start there.

@Elite. I'm not trying to say anything. Also, it's irritating when people shorten your name, isn't it?

Yes, I kind of do. But it takes a few days of posting with a person or so for me to really get an image of what I think they are like. Though I am new to these forums I have been a member of another forum site for 3-5 years, it has been so long I can't remember exactly haha, but I defiantly get it in my mind what someone's personality is like IRL or what they look like from what they post online. Though I suppose this is a pretty narrow view of a person to really make that assumption, but hey what are you gonna do it happens lol!

I definatley do this, not on looks though. just personality and age.
I only really remember those people I think are really cool guys and gals and as for the "One Guy" I sorta have my guy/gal and sorta don't. There's a fairly regular name that I see mentioned a lot and a see a lot of his/her posts but I find that I never agree with his opinions and they are always border line spam but so far no official punishment so I know he/her isn't a problem and it's just me not liking someone.

Ps Just to settle things he hasn't yet posted on this thread.

Oh and if you have ever had any judgements about me feel free to share (publicly or privately) I'm able to take critasicism. (Although loads and loads of compliments will be much better.)

Oh boy I'm going to be that guy but here I go...I've built up a mental image on various users and I WILL NAME NAMES...though not to insult. I can only imagine what some of you think of me...;>_>

Barbaric Goose...it's your avatar ._. I see Steve Jobs and I'm automatically picturing him typing these messages. And the thing is...I hate Steve Jobs, he's such an arrogant prick that throws his products out there and if something's wrong with it, you can go ahead and blame him. Especially "claiming the Iphone as the best portable gaming console"...talk about trying to fill big shoes. Though as a person, I view you as an intellectual with a snarky attitude which isn't a bad thing. If I'd have to make a guess on your actual appearance...I'd probably be dead wrong.

Saiyu ..I can't remember if you're the guy from Germany or not, but I know someone that started with an S used to have this guy in his avatar that looked like James Franco and whenever he posted, I always pictured James Franco .__. though he was kind of an everyguy kind of nice person so I didn't have any negative image of him. James Franco works!

Takamura Bear...one of the people I socialize most with on this site I view as...well, since I haven't seen pictures ;>_> I kind of view him as a uh...anime character! X_X; Actually lol...that black guy he had in his signature (on two seperate occassions) is what I sometimes picture him as...;>___> the one with the moving head, kind of reminded me of Paul Mooney but I'm probably wrong.

TitansofWar ...I haven't talked with this guy in forever but...he always seemed like an old fashioned republican. ;>_> he's very right-wing and not to be offensive...but I viewed him as older than most people on this site.

And then there's that one girl I really disliked, I can NOT remember her name but she always entered every topic with a negative remark about it. She finally got banned and her account was returned, but she hasn't posted since that point. She was pretty popular around here from what I heard...and very egotistical about her appearance (she assumed every gamer wanted a piece of her just cause she was a woman...yeah right...lol).

As for me, well I come off in many different forms. Sometimes completely idiotic and sometimes I make myself out like a know-it-all. But I try to be as nice as possible and be the good guy without pissing off a lot of people. I hope I'm not seen as a giant turd .___.; I mean I'm in the Faces thread and I used to have my Hollow Mask picture for the longest while...if anything, I'd like to be viewed as uh...hm...something pleasant.

This topic has me paranoid ;>_> people not mentioning names yet I'm the one who actually said a few...not trying to be offensive (but I tried REALLY HARD not to be overly bad with Iconolaust or whatever, the girl I mentioned and Titan...both rude people in their own right).

I wouldn't call myself snarky. In fact, it's quite difficult to make me mad. I'm very passionate about certain things, though. Passion is, unfortunately, often confused with anger, or "QQ," as some would say. I hate those people, by the way. They should buy a dictionary. And then hit themselves in the face with it.

Hell, I wanted a piece of her; she was a good lookin' girl. But no more than I wanted, say, a piece of cake. Now Christina Hendricks, that's a woman. And that is a woman that I would like quite a bit more than a piece of cake.

Sometimes I do this with people in real life but I keep my opinions to myself unless they are a famous person.

(Now, firstly, this isn't intended to be trolling or flaming, the guy knows what I think of him and I know what he thinks of me, he's free to respond here calling me everything under the Sun and I won't reply. (Or through PM or message, I don't care). Plus I'm genuinely speaking the truth from what I've personally experienced with him.)
But, I have to agree on that.
We had a 'discussion', it just proved to me that he's very right wing, stupid and actually really quite immature. (Plus look at his posts, he's always just trolling ffs).
Apparently just because you're "only" 18, you obviously haven't gone through a lot of shit, more shit than someone 3 times your age I'm willing to bet. Yeah, he actually used my age, (whilst knowing pretty much nothing about me), to deem that he had "won" our little discussion. The immature part is that I explained why I fucked up my exams, then in the thread about exam results he had a little snipe at me.
People that do stuff like that should just be ignored imo.



Haha, your first point about Barbaric Goose I can get
Goose, I actually like your posts and I really like the way that you come across as intelligent and like you think your posts out, but man, the Steve Jobs avatar gets me everytime
(Also, massive kudos for the Christina Hendricks mention )


As for you TV, your walls of text are good to read and you seem to have good points.
Haha, you're not the only one that's paranoid because of this, I can only imagine what some of you guys think about me. (Haha, feel free to speak your minds though about me, I really would rather you say than not).

Nah, I don't. I always end up guessing wrong or end up disappointed. The thing that bothers me the most is how guys always give a girl a lot of attention. These gentlemen see the female's picture and go all crazy for it. I see it and I'm wondering, "Man, these guys are desperate." In cases like that then I guess the guys are very mediocre looking. I end up being right 100% of the time. Yes, I judge men.

Now this thread is getting interesting. Thanks to a few name mentions so I'll judge a few.

Titans.
Just don't like the sneaky snarky remarks he makes and I find him very provocative.

Deadly Moves
Now heres a guy who can come flying into a thread all guns blazing. Speaks his mind though and I find it funny.

Barbaric.
I like how your opinion can turn a thread around. You do come off as an intellect though which is a compliment.

Vlad
You could make a nun swear. But again you say things that others want to say so it's always fun to watch you battling it out.

T.V.
You certainly stood out from the rest when you first arrived with your huge writings. You seem a happy chap who doesn't mind expressing himself.

Gorrila Stomper
I love this guys posts. 90% of the time he says things that make me laugh. Proper little manc. A little tough nut that looks out for himself.

Oh and there are a few jamies here at the moment that all seem to be football mad and again seem like good lads.

Minty is an ass but sheesh we all know that. He is like a silent wolf that when he pounces it's for the kill. Only because he has other wolfs watching and laughing. I do like his style though.

Shit I could go on for-ever. So many more to write about. Might do a bunch more later if everyone else keeps this going. Thanks to T.V. this thread could get very interesting.

If you want to ignore me then why make a post about me? Seems very illogical to me. Also, you're lucky I'm self-conceded enough to search for my own name or I never would have found your post(s).

Some of you get my humour, whilst others do not, and to the latter I am simply a 'troll'. I see nothing 'troll'-like in pointing out when someone is being incredibly stupid [please see my signature], but in all forums you get White Knights who love to protect the weak brained.

On Topic: For me, people fall into two catergories - annoying & 'I-can't-remember-their-names'. I assume If I start posting the names I can remember I will get banned, so I will resist the urge to list Vladimirk, Jamie1000013, TVthePunisher and Carmona25


*I'd just like to point out that I didn't claim to have 'won' the argument because of your age. I was simply stating that your childishly hippie argument was a sign of your age, and it was a phase you would grow out of. Rebelling against 'the man' is only cool when you're young.

Finally, something I don't want to mock you about. Her name was Iconoclast, or something similar, and she was the most annoying poster I have witnessed on any board.

Agree to disagree here. Being a hippie or "rebelling against the man" has nothing to do with age or growing up. Don't even know why people have the tendency to attach a "thing" to age. I generally find that to be an asinine thing to do.

He's just making things up now to suit himself, that wasn't even what the age thing was about.
He meant my whole opinion about everything wasn't valid because I was 18 and "didn't have a mortgage or significant other or children".

Titan, fancy leaving that shit where you twist what was actually said and being a troll out though?
This could be a fun thread, no need to bog it down with that serious junk.
If you really are desperate to spark up your little childish, "yay right-wing, you're totally hippie scum just because your views are different" and "I'm older and therefore that makes me right" argument, do it personally with me, not here.

I also couldnt stand Iconoclast/Ironcoclast/whatever her name was. If I recognize a name I generally stick around a thread to see what they have to say. Madcap1, Foxhound300, Pants; actually anyone from the completionist community group - everyone recognizes him though. If their oppinion is relevant (not necessarily agreeable - Vlad is someone I generally dont agree with on most things but that doesnt mean I dont respect what he has to say) and well thought out then I begin to pick up on those people as well. I pick up more from people who post in game threads though (as that is my usual stalking ground).

He's finally posted (look down).Nah I'm only messing with you :-P. I think I know who you mean does he have UK in his name anywhere? lol. If I'm wrong I'll get everyone who has UK in their name paranoid (it's a win win situation :-).

Most people here are okay, but I do assume them to be all quite young. This is based solely off their use of grammar and spelling.

In my short experience, the best way to avoid the idiots that I have come across on this forum is to avoid the GoW2 thread/s and any XP events or related threads!

I really don't recognise most names, but Iconoclast was one person who I couldn't understand and Vlad, I have always liked your posts.

Titan, fancy leaving that shit where you twist what was actually said and being a troll out though?
This could be a fun thread, no need to bog it down with that serious junk.
If you really are desperate to spark up your little childish, "yay right-wing, you're totally hippie scum just because your views are different" and "I'm older and therefore that makes me right" argument, do it personally with me, not here.
I don't understand why you would lie? I'm sure the entire argument is there for everyone to see in the 'Gamespot Fingerprint' thread. Our private messaging was a basic extension of the thread;

You didn't believe fingerprints should be taken when selling second hand games, and I believed you to be a dirty little hippie as a result.

Anyway, I don't want to get this lovely little thread locked, so i will end the conversation here. Do not bother replying to me as your free loving thoughts are invalid.

As a side note - people attach 'things' to ages/different types of people because stereotyping works. It might not work 100% of the time, but it works enough for it to become accepted as a stereotype.

Goths are usually under 20, prostitutes tend to enjoy drugs, footballers have below average IQs and in today's era, hippies tend to be young (and live with their parents) as you can't survive in a capitalist society by paying for everything with 'love', like you used to be able to do in the 70s.

Fair point. I should have also said, that I am normally wrong about this. Often I find that it is the other way round. I guess it comes down to pride and laziness, rather than age.

I try not to make these pre-judgements any longer. It dawned on me that this is the case when, while meeting an older gamer on live, his favourite two words seemed to by "gay" and "fail". Every other sentence was "... that fails," or "Fail!" or "That is so gay!"

It was like talking to a school kid.

I would like to think you're joking but I can tell you're not. Quite the shame, though, as stereotypes are absolute garbage and don't actually work. They're just preconceived notions imagined on illogical observations. Perpetuating ideals like that, such as blue is boys and pink is for girls, is just silly. It just creates a foundation for inequality, prejudice, and discrimination. Of course, a capitalist society can't function without any of those. Ah well!

Touche. I dislike how gamers have become associated with the words "epic" and "fail." Those two words are the bane of my existence.

I have spoken to many people about this in the past. Stereotyping, or 'prejudice', is sensible. It is human evolution. It saves us time are people and it is something that other animals cannot do because they have not evolved in the same way as us.

When I see a pile of burning logs and I touch it, I burn myself. If I then see a shrub on fire, I know not to touch it as it looks similar to last thing that hurt me. This saves me time and effort, as I don't have to touch EVERYTHING I come across just to see if it will injure me.

In the same way, when I see someone who is watching/reading manga/anime I know from past experience that there is no point talking to them as I will not enjoy their company. I might not be correct, as they might be the most coolest motherfucking-est person ever. However, as a general rule of thumb, ignoring manga lovers is a sensible time saver for me. Now, thanks to my super stereotyping ability, I don't have to introduce myself to every single person I see - I can tell who I am most likely to be friends with just by looking at them. We all do it. Much like you might think brunettes are more your 'thing', and as a prejudgement you would talk to the brunette standing at the bar as opposed to her fair haired counterpart.

People are too 'moral' to say what I said as they are worried it isn't very politcally correct. Morals, as a general rule, are a joke and should not apply to a progressive world. As it stands, our evolution is limited from here on out because of people like Vladimirk.

So when your child is born with cancer - blame him.

Oh noes...I had this entire big thing typed up and then my internet froze! ~_~ Basically the jist of it: this may or may not turn into a Roast of Iconoclast since she has not been here since June after her week-long-ban and then I guess she never got the notice that she was unbanned (NO ONE TELL HER! o.o). Then I stated I don't want to get into any sort of fight with Titan because I already know that it will be oneway! By the way...

I wouldn't want to get involved in that. I was on the side that disliked the whole fingerprinting ordeal (thus where I first ran into this guy) and he was on the side that voted Dubuya twice. =/

Then I praised Skibada as a stuffed animal and pictured Minty as Hannah Montana...but a more serious, to the point and very intimidating Hanna Montana o.o;

Yay, I condensed it! That post was far too long anyways...regardless, here's my picture idea! This is what all of you look like o.o;

Minty



Barbaric Goose



Takamura Bear



Skibada



Jamie10000



or



Take your pick X_X;

BrokenAssassin



VladimirK



TitansWar



Iconoclast

I figured her out when she posted a news story in the entertainment board and had a several post conversation about how she had searched and didn't see anything about it until someone pointed out that she had POSTED in the first thread on the news story. I checked and the last full day she was on the forums, she posted 72 times.

There are some people on the site that I have an image of them as a petulent 12 year old, but I am not naming names on that one. I'm gonna stay positive on this. I'm also gonna try to avoid just talking about people's avatars, since that is usually the impression I get, and avoid using what I have learned off other sources, like Live.

Vlad: I see you as a hippie scholar. The type of person who will protest the government and write letters to the editor but has also read dozens of books about his left wing ideals, and knows why he believes what he belives, as opposed to some of the younger hippies who see it as a form of conformist rebellion.

Hero of Acre: Tea Partier, through and through. A small governement type but likes the military and would have joined up if he was as good with a gun in real life as he was on COD.

Starstrukk: Originally seemed like a 14 year old girl (doing the I <3 some guy stuff), but now seems the guitar player in a pub band. Stage personality and actual personality, calm amidst some kinds of chaos.

Pants: Always seems like the ex-military school teacher. The type of person that is really a decent person but lord help you if you step out of line. That impressive ability to intimidate but only used if you step out of line. You call him Mr. even if you know his real name.

Minty: Mr. Myxztplk, through and through. A jester who can mess you up royal wielding the power he does. Then again, if you find yourself punished by his god-like powers, there was probably a reason for it.

It's only natural to form opinions about people based upon what you're interactions are with them.

For example if you hear someone on xbla that sounds like a girl, you will make an imaginary profile of that person being a girl.

It's the human condition to judge others and base your judgments on whatever interactions you may have with that person. Anyone who says they don't do this is only lying to themselves because they may have a judgment they want to keep to themselves.

Strangely enough, it seemed like she hated achievements...I can remember a few times where she'd ask why people cared so much and that she could care less that her gamerscore was as low as it was (5,000 or something at the time, I haven't checked lately...). Then I began to question...how did she end up here if she could care so little for achievements? Led me to believe she needed a place to troll people...and if this site needed a female troll, it was her.

I would like to say I don't have a problem with Iconoclast, that said she must of done something that I haven't seen that you guys have.

Ps... I agree with most of what Doug said. Exepct Minty having him having godly powers, I definitely dont think he has God powers he is already losing 2-0 to his nemisis Schoolbusses.

Her gamerscore was perpetually 14k and change. She liked to game, but only on two games: Call of Duty and Rock Band. There are a lot of people like that on this site. It takes a specific personality type to be a scorewhore, and even the people who aren't score whores on this site have that inkling. Her personality manifested in her obsession over post count, and she seemed to troll as a way to have something to respond to, in some threads anyway. She way quite pleasant in the entertainment board, but still came across as a hyperactive 14 year old girl. Oh, and I seem to think it was her that was using internet standard pictures for her avatar, so she didn't look like what her Avatar looked like originally.
