Level 35 Troll

Right from the moment when I saw Saw, I laughed.

I know it’s just a game, suspend disbelief, whatever… but I was thinking about this the other day and there’s just absolutely not one iota of logical explanation to it.

Namely, who are these people sending you bicycles and Venus Demilo statues? How do they know even pwned a forum – all the members of the forum were “attacking” you – so how do they even know? And if they know, why would they care? I can not see any possible reason, like a person is just going to constantly lurk in some forum and be like “Oh, I hate this forum! I wish a troll would come along and pwn it!” Nobody would even lurk in a forum unless they were actually interested in reading it and liked it. Camwhores would be the one clbum I could see where it makes sense, just because guys go very special over girls on the internet, but it wouldn’t even be about the forum; it’d just be because he saw her pics and got a crush on the girl.

Don’t look for things to make sense on the internet.

Don’t look for things to make sense anywhere for that matter.

It should make some sense. It’s not suppose to be a game about complete nonsense.

Actually internet trolling is something that actually happens. It’s not like a unicorn or something.

Because being recruited to troll forums for money makes perfect sense.

Happy fifth anniversary, Forumwarz! :pumpaul:

A lot of aspects of the Forumwarz universe are pretty ridiculous. We usually try to come up with a feasible explanation for them, and if you stretch your imagination enough you can usually make it work. For that 10 percent of things that make no sense whatsoever, we just remember the tattoos.

Emo Kids can buy, equip, unequip and sell tattoos instantaneously over the internet. To our knowledge, nobody’s complained how absurd and impossible this is, whereas they might bring up a minor plot hole that we didn’t consider.

In these cases, you just have to laugh it off. It’s game logic, it requires suspension of disbelief, and sometimes it’s pretty funny.

I don’t see how that’s so unbelievable. Just swap “forum” for “blog” and it becomes a common occurrence – people hate someone’s blog but they can’t post in the comment section for some reason. Perhaps they’re locked from posting, are consistently banned, or are too scared to get singled out and scapegoated. So along comes someone who for some reason isn’t susceptible to the jerkface’s normal douchbaggery and that someone puts the jerk in his place.

When I posted on Anime News Network, I was consistently aggravating the columnist for “Answerman” for which I would often get PMs from people thanking me for my hard work. Sometimes the PMs were from established members of the community, other times someone signed up just to PM me a cheer. Take that, season with parodist hyperbole (actual “gifts” ) and you have the Forumwarz delivery system.

Yeah tattoos are another example. What is with this repeated fallacy that two wrongs make a right? You repeated that concept – and you repeated my reference to “suspension of disbelief.”

How do I express that I find that to be, like, you know, very bad or whatever without trolling. I’m like being civil and stuff. JB is a cool guy.

I generally just chalk up all the ridiculousness to “meh, it’s a game”. And I leave it at that. Then again, I’m really not into the games that are all big on realism and life-mimicking situations.

It’s been expressed and duly noted.

I bet I could find logic holes in your RPG if I really wanted to. But would I? No, no I wouldn’t.
