agreed 21…….and since no one else will, i will, in short, explain why:
lamebook has become lamer than the lameness it initially tried to point out simply because in this competitive world of online commentating, this website has evolved from uninspired yet kind of funny postings with message boards composed by a handful of witty members posting mildly humorous observations and reflections regarding the downfalls of humanity, to pitiful online flirters (you know who i’m referring to), who clearly have no love in their lives and possibly no lives in general (possibly, but still probably), ridiculing each other, with nothing even slightly funny to say… about anything. and other than doing some mediocre spelling and grammar checking and complaining that nothing is funny there is a lack of….well everything. and by lack of everything i mean there is nothing funny about anything on here anymore simply because even if something is funny there’s always that one jerkoff waiting to tell you it’s not funny, why it’s not funny, why you’re clearly just way too dense for lamebook if you think it’s funny. you’re on lamebook. be lame. it’s funnier than trying so very hard to impress your lamebook peers. so i guess what i’m trying to say is, this is, in itself, also evidence of the downfall of humanity, even though most people reading these messages wont say it. and even though this website is all about hurting each other’s feelings, which i am totally all for, i’m not going to point any fingers at who may have caused this degradation from a comical little corner on the internet to a place where the unfunny trying to be funny for the sake of getting attention can find some validation. you know who you are, we all know who you are.
now, i’m not complaining, i’m simply explaining for the better of you to understand. and since the legal fund has gone up quite a few notches i’m starting to think a lot of people really need some kind of help if they’re donating their own hard earned money to…this.
Not everyone who visits Lamebook participates in the types of comments you mention. Donating to Lamebook is not a donation to the users who comment. I would like to see them be able to raise their funds, in hopes that they could beat Facebook. It’d be a basic story of the underdog. It’s also interesting because I’m not sure if Failbook is being sued by Facebook (yet?).
First of all, it’s clear by pitiful flirters you are referring to imamofo and everyone else. I’ll have you know there is also a very physical component to that relationship. Now, I won’t even get into your grammar and all your spelling mistakes plus there is nothing funny in this paragraph and you’re clearly dense for thinking anything is funny here. Although I think I speak for all my lamebook peers when I say we are very impressed with this paragraph so you did a good job there. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to my third job so I can donate to this site.
The point is, Wallace, nobody here actually reads the comments, you dumbass. I sure as fuck don’t give a shit what you losers have to say. And it’s a little ironic that you felt the need to write a 30 page thesis on what everybody already knows. You must be dense.
Now don’t bother replying. I’m changing my bios or something so I can’t come back here. An it’s like 630 in the fucking pm. And I have to get home to my fake wife. So just fuck off, ok?
@ twb155 – Maybe his profile is open to the public?
@ nickyvw – Yeah, whatever. The period (besides the obvious “in my panties”) goes a) inside the quote marks if the quote is a full sentence or b) outside the quote marks if the quote is a partial sentence.
Just so you know, “I’m highly educated and I pose naked for pictures”.
#24 Don’t start long-winded posts with “in short” when you’re not trying to be sarcastic (as hell knows the rest of the post is dry enough). If you start such a post with such a comment, just write “Isn’t postmodernity great?” and let the readers do the footwork.
As relates to the kid talking about Nietzsche and dragons: what is it that you’re trying to achieve here? Nietzsche also said “If you stare long enough into the abyss, the abyss stares back into you,” which is just as applicable, without sounding so Dungeons and Dragons. More so probably, since Lamebook stares into you, and then eventually mocks you for being a nerd if you use your quote.
As to all the prescriptivist grammarians, go read the intro to the 2006 copy of the Oxford English Grammar. Actually, first go look up what prescriptive grammar is. Then all of you go read Strunk & Whites’ The Elements of Style. It’s stood the half-century test of time for a reason, and it will certainly help you discover where a full stop goes in relation to quotation marks.
