I think people are right to get offended at some things. When someone goes on a crusade to ban a slightly violent DC game it's annoying (remember "Bloody Massacre"?) but if you go out of the way to offend people and then complain about them being offended you're just plain rude.

I hardly get offended, there are certain things that tick me off, but even if they do so, I do not show it...specially in this forum, unless it comes from friends from 'real life' I'll let them know they pissed me off. Although, I have yet to feel offended by anyone in this forum...Someone I think called me a fag, and I was like...so?

Interesting topic, I agree with Broomie when it comes to people who get offended about swearing and stuff, especially when they don't have a clue what they are talking about, like christians moaning about sex in videogames.

I don't think I ever got offended in real life so far, tho I learned how to act offended while teaching. Getting offended on the internet on the other hand is a lot of fun, especially when other people do so. Like some hillbilly I was talking with in a forum topic about Neil Youngs new anti-bush album:

"(YOUR REAL NAME IS HAYO VAN REEK-AND I GOTTA TELL YA, THAT TRANSLATES HERE IN AMERICA TO "HAYO I STINK"-THAT'S A FACT JACK, ASK YOUR COMMIE LIB BUDDIES, THEY WILL EVEN AGREE) VAN REEK? HEY, DO YOU KNOW WHERE THAT MISSING TEEN, NATELEE HALLOWAY IS?)

bUT IS DOESN'T REALLY MATTER ANYWAY KNOW WHY? CUSE YOU LAY LIBERAL FUCKS want US TO LOSE THE WAR SO YOU CAN'T GAIN BACK THE WHITE HOUSE AND THEN WE CAN LIVE IN PEACE AND PLANT FLOWERS AND HAVE ALL THAT CRAZY CRAP YOU LONG FOR."

(and I didn't edit that)

btw I do realise I got offended a few times in my fishhead3 days. That was stupid, I am ashamed of it and I know better now. Next I will teach myself not to bash n00bs.

I'm not really offended by swearing. However when individuals try to stir up some more "Circy Bashing" ala this idiot here:

http://www.total-klik.net/boards_thread.asp?board=1&topic=98

Then I get frustrated. Because deep down you know all the answers to the thread will back him up. Because it's Total Klik. Because they think they're funny. Because I wonder exactly what I've done wrong now - and usually I don't do anything wrong.

My theory: These types of people simply post about me in order to drum up visitors to Total Klik - to try and make things more interesting. Funnily enough, most of the insults occur at Total Klik, as a rule, and are probably done to try and curry favour with "THE Podunkian" and the like - to try and be accepted.

Just like in real life, the community at Total Klik is effectively a gang. Singling out prolific and relatively successful members of the community (such as myself, Novabrain, Rikus, etc). And those people in gangs pick on and attempt to bully, to fit in with their "buddies".

But I'm not going to be broken. No, I'm content with the fact that people wouldn't have the guts, if they ever meet me, to insult me to my face. Proof? All of the Click Conventions I've been to. Undoubtedly there were people who might not have liked me or insulted me on message boards - but not one dared to challenge me. It portrays certain community members in a cowardly light, who hide behind their computer monitors - and even more laughably - deliberately sign up for hosts with dynamic IPs, so they can be as abusive as they want to. I challenge anyone to insult me if they ever saw me in real life - if they did, I would respect them for not hiding away behind their little computer monitors, in their dingy bedrooms, in their secluded lives. Otherwise, for all those wanting to hide away, you're all sad little cowards.

From what I've seen, the people at TK are indeed bullies and I dislike how they pick on you, but in your reactions to them I think you're coming off as extremely cocky, and you're just going to encourage them to keep on singling you out.

Rather than saying how cowardly they are, just know that you've done a lot for the Click community and this site in particular - "challenging people to insult you" isn't going to solve it, because they're going to keep on trying. Keeping a level head and ignoring this abuse is, I think, the only way that it's going to be stopped.

Ah, but this has been going on for years. You'd think they'd have grown out of it by now, but... no.

Circy, I haven't been to TK, and haven't had the interest to, but David Newt is right. People feed off that kind of stuff, they won't grow tired of it because they enjoy and feed off your reactions..period. That's what kids do...and that's how they will always be. You need to be the better one of the bunch and ignore their immaturity and mentality.
