I still can't believe people took that thread seriously. It's a fairly obvious troll. The really telling thing is in people's serious replies with advice.

My 'favourite' point of view is one that seems to actually be approved of by a few people which basically says, it's not ok to dump her for being raped, but if it turns out that that has kind of messed her up a bit emotionally, then it's fine to dump her.

We need a more powerful weapon than the rolleyes for such situations.

Absolutely, it needs to be put out of its misery by removing any pretence.

You should only dump her if you did the raping. Because she's on to you man. It's time to get the hell out of there.

I'm actually one of the leading experts on the topic. I actually understand the technology behind it. I don't need the latest exact number to prove that. I know I'm right and you are the one in denial.

hey now, I get slammed on when I post unserious replies to troll threads. that happened in the civ4 general forums once. I was certain it was a troll thread, and I posted some smart ass remark and people didn't like it.

My default position is to treat most threads as real even if they sound like trolls unless it is posted by an obvious DL (like a settler). It's just to easy to laugh at what could be a serious post.

Also I was the one who said not to dump her but unless it becomes obvious she has emotional issues she won't address. About a month and a half ago I got out of a relattionship with a girl who had been sexually molested by her father as a child and she wasn't interested in getting real counciling for it. It really started to have an impact on our relationship and she wasn't interested in changing her behavior so I said good bye. It's perfectly sensible to be cautionary.

Apparently post count has been reinstated to the Poly OT...

Does that mean Poly is dying?

It means that Ming is now one of the Admins and MarkG is just a "technical advisor".

I didn't mean you, it was Gibsie's post that I was refering to especially the way Wiglaf picked up on it.

People who reply to wiglaf threads bring shame to themselves and their entire family. In some cases, even their extended family.

Most people who grow up in suburbs don't get raped

:lol: @ the logic and the implication that sort of suggests that this expands to all suburbs everywhere but only 49% can get raped

Or the fact that they get an immunity shield even if they travel to the most dangerous rape-infested environments...

"You can't rape me - you've already exceeded your quota of raping a minority of people who grow up in suburbs, Mr Inner City rapist dude..."

It means that spam is back in fashion or MarkG is having difficulty getting it up (the post count, I mean)
