Im gone from JI for a short while.
Start the Celebration.
Brian, I know you're upset, but she'll come back to you. Yes, he's connected and he can get her free tickets, but after awhile the attraction of the fame fades and she'll realize you were the best thing that ever happened to her.
III... you are going to have to develop a thicker skin man. No need to bail on the site (even temporary) because a couple of people bashed on your camera thread. It is going to be hard to go through college and then a professional career if you are always going to be this sensitive. There is going to come a time where you can't walk away.
On the plus side you are walking away from an issue instead of telling them all to go F off.
He doesn't understand that people with victim mentalities are the most fun to **** with...
Regardless of that fact some people get carried away. III has this notion that I am out to get him and that I look for things to ban him with (has stated such several times). Fact is I banned him 1 day for a 5 page battle royale with another poster (who got 3 weeks for the same thread - the other person never contributes anything positive and instigated it). I have stuck up for him countless times yet he thinks that I am the one who is out to get him....
Does the victim mentality make it fun to screw with him... yes. But sometimes you just have to realize that the receiver of the punishment isn't keen on being your (not you in particular Gagoots but "your" in general) personal punching bag.
Wether he sometimes brings it on himself or not people tend to go way to far when it comes to responding to him. Which then usually turns into some sort of retalitatory post from III which crosses the line and things get ugly. I am just glad that he didn't curse everybody out on the way out.
