Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Hello General Discussion, I bring you a proposal. ANNUAL PIE FIGHT!

This might be kicked off back into Meta, in which case I apologise in advance, mods.

Hearts are nice, aren't they? And they raise money.

Well, how about PIES? Hm? I wonder how difficult it could be to change the heart gif to a pie gif? Not THAT difficult, I suggest!

And raising money sure is good!

So, I propose an annual pie fight. YES. A great big silly pie fight where instead of buying hearts we buy PIES to THROW!

"But why would we throw pies, sibelian? Surely this would be HORRID BULLYING."

Well. I don't think so. If someone splatted me with a pie I would be thinking "YAY! more money for a worthy cause!" I would just think it was funny.

"But... but but but what would CAUSE the pie-throwing, sibelian? How could we JUSTIFY IT? We give hearts because of, ya know, nice reasons. Pies make me think of BAD reasons."

Wellll. I think it would be up to you. You could splat someone with a pie in a spirit of "ner, ner, I hate you so I splatted you with a pie" but nobody would know unless you told them as much and then you'd just look like a jerky moron. Anyway, IF someone got totally, ridiculously splatted it would be a proper badge of honour, I say. I don't know about you but in real life I only throw pies at people I respect.

"oooooh, sibelian. It's all fun and games until someone LOSES an EYE."

Well, you're unpersuadable, then, imaginary concerned person.

But what about you non-imaginary people of DU? What do YOU think?

1. I like pie!

Throwing a pie could be a negative...but presenting someone with a nice pie is a thoughtful gesture, too....

5. I often send hearts to those whom I disagree with most vehemently.

So, a pie would make no difference.

6. I give them to my top favorites and then go into the History of Feminism and give them to

the sweeties there until I run out. I just love doing that...

I don't think I would give a pie. I just ignore people who irritate me...
