    The "Wall of Shame" signature?

    When did this become a thing?

    I'm sure I'm just really late, but for the longest time up until two weeks ago I've just thought a disproportionate people were idiots showcasing other idiots they agree with.

    Was anyone else confused? Generally there isn't a preface in the sig like "Idiocy defined". Is it supposed to be implied by how common the practice is?

    Confused by the fact that someone is emotionally reasoning instead of rationally, and there of an idiot?

    Not at all.

    No not that, as that is funny. There are people that quote dumb things without saying that they are quoting them BECAUSE they are dumb, which led me to assume they were just another dumb person agreeing.

    Perfect example though, until I saw you clarify it in an earlier thread that it was ironic, I thought you genuinely agreed with that post - so much you made it your signature. That's why I'm asking about the practice and if I'm the only one to make the mistake.

    The quotes? Generally I completely ignore them. Although now that's it's brought to attention it makes me wonder where the line is drawn on that and the "naming and shaming" concept if the poster's name is included...

    The one I have I have been using a while on and off again. I hope if gives some people a message that sometimes I am not always so serious.

    Or exaggurate and go down in history as that one really dumb person - But in truth, you were the mastermind all along.

    Almost like a film plot.

    Fuck no I don't. If you wanted to know so badly you could just ask I don't bite.









    Ok maybe I nibble a little.

    I'm just going to use it to quote everything I've ever written and make everyone read it all again. Without context of course.

    Ive thought more then once of making a collage of some of the things Tradewind says, and putting that as my sig, he is one of the only reasons i venture into some of these threads. The man is a genius.
