To me, it showed a bit of his true face. That some sort of a belief, that Americans are better than everyone else. How arrogant.


that was the obvious meme. you should have known that was trolling. anyone who knows blizz knows he isn't a moron, and only morons think that.


Really, huh? Then why all the insults, then? That seemed really genuine. Unless it is politically correct to be supreme over everyone else?

People might have known he was trolling but it got to be a bit annoying eventually nevertheless. Even for me and I simply love that guy.  So it was the right thing to apologize.

energyz, if you were thinking instead of merely feeling, you'd realize that BECAUSE the posts were so outrageously over the top, that they were obvious trolling. i guess you're not familiar with internet trolling. most of it doesn't occur subtly; because subtle trolling is an art form that only those with like talent, recognize. for trolling to be more effective, it has to be more outrageous, so that it triggers more reactions.

@ zeno: you're probably the only one who didn't enjoy this in some way


Because there's absolutely nothing wrong at all with his trite performance and everyone should enjoy it. Humor predicated on vulgarity, provocation, personal remarks and innuendo sure is more popular than ever here at HC.

if the op were crocodile tears, that would be pretty low, indeed. but i don't believe that to be true.


So if he'd actually drop the act for a change to speak from the heart, it would be pretty low. Wow, fantastic encouragement.

Counter-trolling BlizzardSoyBoy is a low hanging fruit, even lower than Hillary fans and third wave feminists. Combined.

i'm not a fan of either side. they're both beyond ridiculous, and nobody's working together for snow. it's mutiny on all levels, and very much to the detriment of the nation's welfare; from the powerful vermin all the way down to the bleating herds.



edit: screwed up the quote.

i think people explicitly shouldn't be allowed on the internet, and certainly on social media sites(which is dividing the living snow out of people). except hc. hc's ok.

but seriously, if you look at social media sites, they have nothing to offer for the most part, than osm-related content. and you can see how osm-related content divides US. it's ridiculous. now, broaden the bickering in the osm, to the entire internet, and you can see why people are being so divided against one another. there's barely any platform for a common ground outside of niche echo chambers. here, we at least have modding and productivity to combine us.

Yeah, after a couple of posts it became obvious that he was just trolling. I'll be honest, at first I thought he was serious, luckily I was on vacation so I was a bit restrained.

I'll admit I had fun, even if just in the sidelines, I always get cheered up at making fun of Americans, so it's all good.

Apology accepted, tho there should be a penalty just for the fun of it.

Nah right-wingers just tend to imagine  that. In reality others are looking at each other with a smile and going "man they are trying so hard, lol"

It does apply to both camps, and with the level of polarization we see these days (snowflakes versus nazis BS), when labels replace arguments, how can it not?

Both camps had valuable characteristics before such polarization though, the progressives were more open to change, daring yet grounded on earth, the conservatives truly valued modesty (just think of Markkur) and had not been making a hobby of turning everything into pitchfork uprising with 2D sarcasm. Sarcasm can only be artistic if it capsulates empathy, it is not the food, it is the spice. You have to communicate to be able to tease and internet is very new, everybody instantly wants to tease anybody. Anyway, I just switched to contemplating mod because Iím not typing on a tablet but a phone, very small keyboard, by the time you type, you have five anti-theses juggling in your head.
