Wow. Don't you get that the ONLY thing you are making people think about is how much of a sensitive little goof you are? It's NOT discrimination. Why? Gee let me explain...Have you seen anyone get a thread erased or closed simply because they were an 11er? Have you seen anyone banned because they were an 11er? Does this site refuse to let people join because they are an 11er? Have you ever seen an 11er make a decent post with a decent argument get attacked and berated only for being an 11er? Nope. didn't think so. Everytime i've ever seen the 11er term used was by people either joking in a smartass way or because the 11er was being a fucking retard. Have you seen the amount of moronic threads/posts made on here on a daily basis? Have you noticed that 8out of 10 times these threads/posts were made by 11or 12er's? And i'm saying this being an 11er myself for fuckssake! I have never been attacked because of when i joined most likely because I don't start 20 dumbass threads a day or make dumbfuck posts about how the Rock should break Undertakers streak or how John Cena is 10 times better in the ring than Flair was. And what happens? oh no some people call these morons 11er's! OH my goodness gratious! How horrible! Really? They deserve to be called a whole lot worse than that. Like moron, idiot, nutsack, fucktard, asspirate, ice edge, douchenozzle, knob, ect. ect. And those are being nice! If i had to deal with these morons in person i would probably be in jail for slapping the piss out of them. But you're on here shakin your fist in the air acting self important all preachy like you think you're MLKjr fighting for the rights of these horribly treated 11er's. Poor little babies. As far as i can see the only discussion you have brought to this forum is people trying to decide wether you're a moron or an idiot. Yep you sure did raise the bar there.
If I was that sensitive why would you think I would come here and challenge the whole social system? Don't you think I would have run away the first time cat came out and started insulting me for making a joke?
Don't be ridiculous.
How the hell is it not discrimination if you only joined last month and already accepted the term 11er and that you are one of them?
You just followed the norm to whatever it was. Let me ask you this. How many other wrestling forum sites have you been on and how many have this norm 11er been around on?
What would happen if you came across another site where this stuff would be considered offensive? Would you still use it? Of course not. All you would do is follow the norm and that's what it's all about.
This happens when people stop thinking for themselves and just follow the whatever norm different sites feed them.
How about setting your own norms? Wouldn't that be a good idea?
This term or any other number term have nothing to do with people coming here. Let me give you a flash of information here.
I doubt this place was as popular as it is now like let say back in 04. You had fewer members that led to fewer "dumb posts" and "dumb posters".
The year is 2012. Things have changed. This site is number 1 search result on Google. Internet is expanding and getting more viewers and posters (although the majority is on Facebook and Twitter and such) meaning more people is joining this site.
The more people join here the more repetitive threads and posts you will get and more people will type down their frustrations on here till the term 11er is born. Now everything is generalized.
Every time something bad happens or someone posts something stupid instead of actually responding to the post and the content people will insult the user by a number. Good idea? You tell me.
It's way beyond joking. It's a discrimination and not a joke. Why is it a joke if it's not really funny?
I am one of the few who actually can separate actual jokes from discrimination and believe me the terms 11ers and 12ers are one of them.
If you want me to keep explaining it to you I say post some more. Just leave insults out since they are useless to the current discussion

You want to question the norm, prepare to get bashed. You're right, the norm in Rants is different from normal social standards. Deal with it.
Well I was prepared to be bashed. As you see it's not like I'm afraid of being bashed. People can bash all they want but they know I have something here otherwise they wouldn't bash me.
If my words where empty they wouldn't respond to me. Obviously I'm hitting the nerve here.
Well what if I don't want to deal with it? What happens if I don't? People are going to call me names? If that all they got they can start thinking what kind of place they have created here.
If people have nothing more but lame insults and no real answers they really should reconsider posting here.
