Jesus. Why are you guys all doing this to an actual n00b?
I haven't even been here a hundred days. I know you're just doing this to fuck with the new guy. To be honest, I don't find it funny at all.

Sure, today it's just your internet screen names. But in a month I'll come on here and the layout will be neon pink. Soon after you'll do things like install brand new fonts and spell color "colour" and theater "theatre". You know what? Don't bother. Keep your damn names because I know when I'm not wanted.


Screw you guys, I'm going home. :mad: :mad:

2. This probably won't happen again until 2012
Hang in there. Even the old members who aren't changing names are having trouble with all the changes.

6. Oh, so who are you?
Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 10:53 PM by EastTennesseeDem
Are you the one who befriends me and then turns into one of them?

What's your new name gonna be? Your nefarious intentions can't hide from me.

43. Not going anywhere and not changing my name
:)

BTW, I'm a fellow Tennessean. I'm from the opposite end of the state though.

3. Stay out of the Canada forum
and avoid HeyHey, Yvr_Girl, GhostsofGiants, and Billyskank.

And a bunch of other people who aren't American and are some sort of furriner. :hide:

12. Seriously, what have I been holding you back from?
Before I got here, I bet you were all saying to each other "Oh, let's go to Cancun" or "Oh, let's go to Costa Rica" or "Oh, let's all drop a huge dose of window pane and take a hot air balloon ride to the Four Corners". Then I got here and you all say "Great, now we gotta babysit the n00b". Then one day, one of you had a crazy idea that you could passive-aggressively get rid of me. Well guess what? It worked. Go. Go realize your dreams. I don't mind.

I got some new names for you: "Meanie1990", "miscreant4life", or "neer_do_well09".

If it makes you feel any better when I first joined the name amnesty was going on, just don't let it get you. Dig in your heels and scream "I'M NOT LEAVING" at the top of your lungs. :P

I agree with all you say except for the theater/theatre baloney! That is over the top! I have always used "theatre" in referring to "theatre" and no amount of pandering will ever convince me to switch the "r" with the "e"...Kapish, Kompadre?

17. How'd you know about the pink?
It is supposed to be a secret project.

Well, now that the cat ... err ... flamingo is out of the bag, here's a mock-up.



I think it's a purdy colour.

24. Oh, I'll spell colour anyway that I want!
Especially if it's the correct way, which is "colour".

I also keep a neon-pink filter over my computer screen so that all pages have a neon pink layout. It makes hotmail a lot more HOTT.

And you almost got away with it too. The whole name change thing was just too obvious.

You moved? Suuuure. That one and $4.75 will get you a hazelnut signature hot chocolate at Starbucks.

Then they came for the Delaware Turnpike tollbooths. But since I wasn't a Delaware Turnpike tollbooth, I was silent.

You know who else came for people? These guys.
