    Today I learned that most people are dumb. A smart person would understand that like attracts like. A dumb person is someone who thinks that I would like her even though she's the opposite of me. Only a dumb person would think that they could change me by increasing the frequency that I am forced to put up with them.

    Today I learned that clicking "show ignored content" rarely if ever pays off...

    Sucks when the ignored started a thread you like, though. The struggle!

    More edgelord preteen fuckery. Also a weeb inundating a thread with weeb stuff. Then there's the shitposters. Oh, fucking CHRIST the shitposters...

    I've actually stopped following threads because of lengthy engagements between two people on my ignore list making it gibberish to attempt to follow without reading their fuckery.

    I don't throw shade, I unleash eclipses.

    That something I've been doing for many, many years (singing along with the melody/music of a song but changing the words; not necessarily as a parody) has a word to describe it: contrafactum.

    I'd love it if TFW had an "Ignored by x members" tab on our profiles, it'd be enlightening.

    Bonus points because I had already unsubbed this thread and the ONLY reason I'm back in it is because you purposefully quoted someone you want to ignore specifically to tell them you want to ignore them. Odds are I'm betting you'll be pretty quick to click "view ignored content" to see this response.



    As far as learning something new, today I learned that my first shift counterpart either doesn't know how to read, can't count and sort, or purposefully didn't stack trays and went FURTHER down the aisle to get away from having to hit the lift lever on the forklift.

    So today I learned that people sometimes put in serious work just to be lazy.

    Well, your exactly right in that I made that response just to let you know what I think of you. I’ve thought about intervening in some of your arguments before, but I’ve had trouble trying to word my thoughts in ways the site allows. One day, perhaps.

    As for clicking the “show ignore.” I only do it when the conversation is broken and/or everyone is quoting a phantom post I cannot see, but I’ll admit I was very curious of what your response would be.

    EDIT: Oh, and I’m guessing I wasn’t on yours before if you got an alert, though I’m sure I am now. :)
