Been there, done that, and got the T-shirt, son, and you're just doing reruns.

I liked the OP and likely am guilty of some of those things, myself.

People want that "sign of approval" so bad. I know, I've made my share of red rep rants but at that time, I was relatively new and every post contained large amounts of profanity and proof that I was legit mad.

But nowadays, most rants consist of the same feuds between the same people. I gurantee, if you take away any post in any thread in this section that was relative to Mystical, NoyK or Apocalypto, the post totals would be drastically different.

So IMO, it's not really the fact that it's way too many shitty rants being made, it's the fact that after the first page or 2, they all get derailed by people talking about anal sex, calling out certain posters for being rejoiners or a feud that has consumed every other thread on the first page. I question how so many threads have been made in the past few days, based on something happening in the jobbers thread and not be merged with that thread.

At my worst, I still feel I was better than countless posters who plague this section for the better part of the day. Yet, when I got out of hand, my threads would be closed or I would be banned from certain threads. It's like that doesn't happen anymore. I gurantee if you put restrictions on a handful of posters in this section, it will show signs of improvement. If not, we get 4 threads a day over red rep, calling NoyK a rejoiner or those other posters constantly referring to anal sex.

Pathetic rant but you agree with most of it? So in essence you're saying you liked the parts that weren't about you.

Yeah sports section is getting more and more dropkicks in it as well. I could go on for longer if i was to mention everyone all over the forum that needs a slap upside the head.

The thing that you've got to understand is that people will do what they want in here regardless of what anybody else (barring the admins, and even then that can fall on deaf ears) has to say, whether that be somebody with little authority (that would be me) or even a long term poster who is well respected (Rush).

The biggest problem for me is the obsession that some people have over the possibilty of certain posters having alt accounts. Now don't get me wrong, as a short term in joke it's okay, but some of the people on here are relentless with it and let the accuations spill other to several other threads instead of keeping it to one single 'outing' rant. Even when Headliner said that there was no evidence to back up the claims of Noyk being Apocalypto (I had already shown evidence as to why Noyk more than likely isn't him, for the record) we still had several posters who just kept banging on about it to the point of complete and utter tedium. I think that people should keep the accusations to just one thread if they're going to be so determined with them, otherwise sack it off and raise the issue with the staff if you can't have some discipline.

I think that basically everybody that posts in rants these days (barring a few who make fleeting appearances) have been guilty of some form of derailing. I know that I'm terrible when it comes to winding up Noyk over a multitude of threads because I'm like a fly being drawn to shit (second part is a good comparison) in regards to him. I can only try to stop the multitude of arguments that I'm involved in, but hoping to stop that mentality entirely throughout all of the rant's posters is wishful thinking. All it takes is one idiot to troll along with a couple of easily baited posters and it all snowballs from there.

For this place to get back into some kind of 'order' all of the sensible posters (I think that most people would like to be included in this category) would have to find some form of self control, whether that would be through implimenting the ignore function or just displaying thicker 'e-skin'. If that isn't possble then maybe the admins could do something about it, possibly have a purge of who they see as undesirables (waiting for this to backfire on me)? If they're bothered enough about the situation then they will surely do something.
I'm guilty of it as well and i'm not saying every rant needs to stay on topic with no fucking around whatsoever. Some of the best rants over the years are the ones that spiral off into different directions, some posters getting angry at each other etc etc.

What i'm saying is that every rant doesn't have to come back to insulting a poster you don't like. Take your NoyK rant for example, exposed him brilliantly and got him annoyed. That should've been, sort of the end of it, a chapter closing if you will. It was done, he got embarrassed and it should've been left. If he kept making stupid posts, then it can be reopened and you can argue but a lot of the time arguments start in other rants purely because NoyK, Mystical etc post on a topic, someone comes in and says 'lol you are a twat. stop pretending to be a girl on the internet ya phaggot' when its really not needed and it kicks off again.

As i said, i'm guilty of it as well. I'm not trying to be high and mighty on that point but its the kind of mob mentality that goes on in this section all of the time from "veterans" who can do better and people trying to suck up.

Like I said, maybe a official "User Rantsfest Thread" as a sticky or whatever you wanna call it would be a good idea. At least we wouldn't see what we have seen lately in most threads created in Rants. I'm one of the most guilty ones in this to be honest, but I'm going to stop with the moronic attitudes and derailings everywhere I go. And I'm not trying to change people, or ordering to do so, just maybe, it would be a good idea to do the same.

Like Rush said, AndreBaker's thread was good, and I admit it did tick me off quite a bit, but that's what made it good.
But when a certain user posts a reply in a thread, and like stated before, hasn't posted anything bad or acted like a massive barmpot and is actually improving, and for no reason someone replies to him with insults over stuff that happened ages ago, it doesn't help this section at all. And Mav before you have a go at me for this last phrase, I only brought up stuff you did in the past, because you decided to also do it yourself. But yeah it's over now, moving on.

People keep constantly complaining about new users being complete and utter crap (I know I'm in that category, sadly) are not helping making this a better place which they claimed it was a few years back. Yes, this year has brought whole bunch of nutsacks that barely post anything worth reading, but some of them are trying to improve, move on, and stop with the pointless bickering everywhere. And (pretty much) stalking these said users, flaming them and ticking them off, will just make us go back to a full circle instead of moving on in a straight line. I can almost guarantee you Rants, and probably the community itself would improve drastically if this stopped.

That's what the jobbers thread is for. That's why I created the fucking thing. "*Off topic random bullshit and spam*

Ok, upon reading this here are the bullet points

~ Rush pointing this stuff out means something b/c he's not a newly joined idiot. (not all are, but you get the point)

~ Swagger_ROCKS is on meth

~ This place would be better if rants weren't going to be made daily by some rejoining fuckwad who gets red repped. It's staler than any catchphrase on this place.

~ Rants isn't the only section in peril from morons. It was always more expected in the wrestling sections than here, but the wave of trash recently is alarming.

that's about it. *waits for dick riding comment*

You had no knowledge of it until I told you about it. Let it be known that one can learn from moments of sheer stupidity. Rather than take it on board, you bitched about it, kept rehashing it, got yourself humbled and then entered a meltdown phase.

You should carry through with your rants sabbatical. It'll be most beneficial for your mental health.
