Can someone tell me?

Okay.
So what's the difference between SPAMmers and TOSSers?

Well I can tell you that spammers are off-topic and random.

Tossing is different. I'm not one of the "tossers" so I couldn't give you any kind of "official meaning."

Tosser, typical example: Sir_Stiven. It's that rooster alfa-male on HC style he has. Trying to screw others, sometimes with good jokes and sometimes with, well.. lame ones.

Spammer, typical example: Dingo. One line of text, usually unrelated and without any point. Not even funny, unfortunately.

Hmmmm. I looked about the tossers tavern. Tossing seems to be a very 'in crowd' type of thing. It's not how you toss, but who you know.
I'd rather be a random spammer.

I don't really think tossing is about who you know.. i think the atmosphere in the tosser's tavern comes more from us just lookin' out for each other - not that we don't want any new people around

The major difference i see is that spammers seem not to care what they say, so long as they're saying something It's as tho they're driven by some desire to see their own name on the 'last post by' for every thread. Tossing, however, isn't about that  A Toss may be some sort of nonsense, but thought is put into the nonsense! Unfortunately, many of the young tossers equate tossing to a form of flaming, and its really not that - tossing should never be mean spirited...

The main thing to remember about Tossers Tavern is that it's free for all friends, so if you come in friendship you're always welcome  

*just please leave the stinky yukky greasy spam at the door!!!!*

In other words, "I really have no idea aboout what "tossing" is"

If I were to define toss, I would say "tossing is stating your idea/s about a specific issue (be it for good or no), but making it look like nonesense ("nonesense" is not the exact word for it, but I am unable to find the exact word for it at the moment-or just too lazy )"

PS: You realize how good and friendly a tosser is/can be only after you really try to understand him/her, and stop judging with prejudices.

its ok svarog, we all have a different style of humour. Even if yours are yet to be found

and yupp, everyone can become a tosser. So its not who you know, its who you are.

There are no real qualifications to become a tosser (except for the 3 tosser trials then ).

But if you look at for example mad, hamsi or pandora they have certain things incommon...like for example always speak their mind and being honest about things. And they all have an atleast IMO great sense of humour.

Though "being a tosser" has greatly changed here at HC. Since being here from the start i know alot about it. At first us tossers became alienated. We had different views then the mods and spoke up for ourselves.

We took a stand against all injustices here.

That wasnt appreciated to start since some the mods wanted to keep HC as their playground and the buttkisser club tried their best to help them.

Yet things kept kinda cool until hexa closed the first tossers tavern. That started a spark which eventually turned into the "library wars" when oldtimer made a sarcastic post about andi being a mod in library.

Since then there has been two sides more or less in HC. Nidhgrin explained that in a great way in a thread which valery started.

That was maybe 2 years ago.

Since then things has eased up even if their has been some occational fighting.

And nowadays being a tosser has more and more becommen a popularity thing. which is great in a way since more tossers usually means more fun.

But being a "real" tosser as stated also includes taking a stance for some things.

Take madmartigan for example, he has his 1 red star as a sign that he takes a stance from QP:s here. He lost his 3 stars because he wanted em gone... he made a harmless post 3 times in a row which all recieved penalties.

Myself i also did the same thing to start. I didnt want any QP:s either... but then it struck me that i was just doing what hexa wanted because as he stated in another thread "wanted me banned". And by getting no stars i was doing the job for him as a certain nr of stars removed means getting banned. So now i got a few, and the best part is that i dont have floodprotect no more

so there, now you got some tosser history aswell hehe.. though that was the very much reduced version, but if interested check back in pages and you might learn how things was back at beginning... makes good reading to see that i was clever back then too

its words like the ones above that makes madmartigan one of the best posters here at HC.

No matter how many redstars he has below his name.

Speaking your mind, no more no less.  Add in a smile every now and then, or a tick of sarcasm.  Remember we're all humans posting here.  Remove the mind part and what you have is spam.  Remove the respect part and flames is what you get.

Concerning the requirements to become a tosser I think stiven is wrong about one thing tho...

Read the quote in bold that Martigan said. Here's what happens if you don't try to understand the tosser.

Yes! That's right!

IT'S...

WHEN TOSSING GOES BAD!

The following will be a misinterpretation of a post authored by the King of Tossers himself!

Quote:

SS rambles on about people people having different styles of humor, which is a nice way of saying that some people are boring losers that will never crack a smile ever. He also says that Svarog happens to be one of them.

Quote:

There are no real qualifications to become a tosser (except for the 3 tosser trials then ).


So basically you're saying that only some people aren't good enough to be tossers.

Quote:

But if you look at for example mad, hamsi or pandora they have certain things incommon...like for example always speak their mind and being honest about things. And they all have an atleast IMO great sense of humour.


And these people are tossers only because I think they are funny.

In the beginning we were just trying to cause trouble but the mods gave us penalties, so we pussied out and decided to hide in Tossers Tavern and try to act like the good guys. Now that we have stopped causing trouble people are beginning to like us tossers.

I'm not a "real" tosser anymore cause I wimped out and stopped trying to cause trouble. Now I'm a loser with 4 red stars. MadMartigan is the only close thing to a real tosser anymore cause he has only 1 red star. But he lost that years ago and is too lazy to try to earn anything back.

Quote:

so there, now you got some tosser history aswell hehe.. though that was the very much reduced version, but if interested check back in pages and you might learn how things was back at beginning... makes good reading to see that i was clever back then too


So there's the tosser history. I would have gone into more detail about how we rebelled and all the injustices that the mods did, but I'm too much of a wimp to saying anything cause the mods will give me another penalty.

Quote:

amen.

MadMartigan is a great poster cause he is really a suck-up that acts like he is a rebel, so he can look cool unfortunately he acts a little too much like a rebel sometimes, so the mods have to keep him in line.

*So and singeth Nidhgrinsky the bard in a clear voice, standing tall on a treestump near the enchanting flames of the campfire...*


When the rumbling thunderclouds of doom
are packing heavily above our heads,
the last drops of sunlight disappear in the gloom,
a blackness, too dark for regrets...


*and pauses after the first phrase, staring around bewildered at the mob, realizing he's standing on the line separating two territories, outs an unmanly EEEEK! Before boldly taking cover under a large log of wood...*
