sure, you don't post here often, but every time you do makes us feel like we're in a remake of Mean Girls. except instead of being a "bitch" (which Hayden excels at), you just come off as dorky and awkward.
if you come at louder's café like that, you better step your game up.
Derek??? He's a lovely boy!
Genteel death is totally "Mean Girls" though. All he posts are quips and insulting remarks. At first I thought he was just a frustrated kid, late teens or low 20's, who tended toward Grumpy-Gus snarkiness. I thought it was kinda cute actually! But now he's starting to be the type of person that people stay away from online-forums just to avoid.
I hope his home life is ok. Genuinely... because he acts like a frustrated college drop-out with or an ax to grind, and he grinds it with invisible people because he perceives them as both harmless and immune to being/feeling harm.
But Derek > Genteel. Far and away. Sorry genteel! I like you and enjoy your posts when they're not a) cut/pastes from other users and nothing more b) insults aimed at users in discussion you weren't even part of or c) taking up space to insult the forum as a whole. Sounds like a pretty unhappy guy.
Next time, Genteel, just open up and tell use what you're feeling and maybe we can help, because the insults are objectively lame and usually desperate sounding. Get happy!!!
