that was not intended as a joke




Didn't think that part was, hence the second smiley. I'm just surprised someone would really do it.

Thanks, Beer.

ETA: If more people would put an actual subject in the header, a search might be worth something to see if you are a 'duper.

This needs a lock by the way. It offends me greatly.

when it's bullshit yes. that does not apply to every thread.

when a thread has been buried back 15+ pages it really doesn't qualify. What i am tired of is a bunch of idiots posting DUPE continuosly bumping a thread for no other reason than to raise their post count. It does nothing but keep garbage on the front page of GD, and in this case shit on a serious thread about the death of a soldier.



Why didn't you just lock & tack this thread? Serious question.

You know you're going to get children playing when you put your foot down.

Wouldn't those DUPE posts keep the story on the front page to help some of us see what we might not see otherwise?


This is a case of taking shit too seriously. This place will always have immature people posting, it's life on the web.

Nope not with friggin jack booted dupe cop cyber thugs watching every move made 24x7 on one of my favorite forums. Not everybody can stay on here around the clock - there are times when I might not be here for weeks on end. "dupe" "dupity dupe dupe" and all the rest of the bullshit sucks.....It's fucking irritating...

You know damned well that is not the context my post was in.

you generalized that calling dupe was keeping post on the front page. I think sometimes that is GOOD.

Especially in the case of a fallen soldier

Of course this is ARFCOM and your milage may vary.


I most respectfully submit that you are in the wrong place if you can't learn to ignore.

Yep, agree to disagree.

I guess I don't feel insulted or feel I am giving an insult.

Of course I don't get insulted here(it's the internet), that is a reaction I can and do control.



And

RIP, to the soldier that prompted this thread.

If your biggest gripe today is that idiots on the internet yell "Dupe" at the drop of a hat, then you're not doing bad at all.

Relax. Have a beer. Go play outside in the rain for a few hours.

Ok.

The poster in question was way out of line. I have sent a scathing IM to him.

The problem is people this is just an internet forum, it really does not affect your life in a big way. We all need to take things less seriuosly on here.
It is the Internet for the Christ Sakes.

What is so bad about having a high post per day average?
This is a Forum?
Forums need participants, right?
Everyone just needs to relax.

This is only the INTERNET.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 8:23:13 AM EDT
Looks like about all you have left is to go slay a beer, beerslayer. Dupe does keep a post up top, but if it's a dupe anyway, why bother? If you are going to cry dupe, as least include the link to the other thread.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 8:28:49 AM EDT
I agree wholeheartedly:

As posted by your's truly on January 1.



To start off the New Year, I'm going to begin with a rant against all Dupe Nazi's or Aspiring Dupe Nazi's.

WTH is up with you people? You seem to think that this board is an all consuming life, where every
thread is, or is supposed to be, read by everyone.

If there's a dupe within the last 3 or 4 pages, fine.
If you're posting information that everyone knows, such as; "GW elected to second term", fine,

Otherwise, S.......T.......F.......U......

If your life is so useless and pitiful that you have the ability to spend hour, after hour, after hour; day after day, after day on the computer, start your own site where you can be the supreme Dupe Nazi.

Otherwise, S.......T........F........U.....

There are those of us who log on once or twice a day, scan through 4 or 5 pages, and get caught up with the Arfcom current events, as well as World Wide current events.

It seems to be trendy lately to post "Dupe" and "IBTL". I don't know if it's to get your post count up or if you really don't have a life.

If this is a bandwidth issue, I'd much rather have a good dupe than to see a thread on; "I have black ooze coming out of my Scrotum, What does the Hive Mind think I should do?", or "I was caught going 165 mph in a school zone, how can I get out of the ticket?"

Hopefully 2006 will see a steady decline in our resident Dupe Nazi's.

For those of you that didn't get it.

S........T.........F............................UP



Thank you Beer.

I am not a dupe Nazi at all, and in fact I doubt I have ever "called dupe" on a thread before but I did on the Sioux Warrior thread because I thought it was wrong and really dishonorable to not check (search) the forum for a few days back to see if there was already a thread on that subject. There was an excellent thread, four pages long already and it would have been better if people had added to that thread.

I will obviously obey the moderator's wishes on these matters. I would have appologized and removed my post right away when people disapproved of my post but the disapproving posts were abusive, as was one IM I received. I don't think anyone should automatically assume that posters here have evil intentions. I've been a member here for 6 years, a paying member for several years, and I think I have contributed positively to these forums.

And lest anyone doubt how seriously I take this I have close friends who are in Iraq right now and other friends who have returned from there. I even have a friend who was badly wounded. I have visited Walter Reed to see wounded soldiers. I have spent close to $1,000 the past three years sending care packages and books and magazines to men deployed in Iraq and Afganistan.

actually if you sent him an abusive IM, NO he didn't.




The posts in that topic were more abusive than anything I wrote in the IM.
I chose to handle it privately unlike the others.
It was a Scathing IM, not abusive in any form.

8.) Posting repeat topics with similar or slightly varying titles. While it may seem to be funny, the "spamming" of the community in this manner results in problems for users and management. (Multiple topics on important issues or discussions are acceptable, this only applies to topics which waste resources for no other reason except personal enjoyment or humor.)

This rule is for the purpose of preventing spam BS from over running the forum.

Calling DUPE on EVERY thread has gotten beyond old. Calling DUPE in a thread regarding a fallen soldier is just WRONG and in severely poor taste.

I vote you start banning these morons who run around yelling dupe everywhere.
