The Return of Angry Ranting
« on: February 13, 2012, 10:07:32 AM »



Your mind etc.


Okay, so by popular demand, we are bringing back Angry Ranting. I am not a benevolent god. I am not a caring person. In my soul I am old and full of bitterness and spite. I do not understand this thing you call fun. But a lot of the mods are up for it, so I am relenting.


Now, I have ALL kinds of reservations about this, because I remain unconvinced Angry Ranting was a good thing. So though it's back, it's back with some 'ifs' and 'buts' (no laughing at the back):


1. It's going to be a hidden board like Complete Nonsense, and will be moderated in the same way. No biggy there I assume.


2. Its return is provisional. Specifically, I remain of the opinion that most Angry Rants posted in the upper boards were caused by Angry Ranting itself. Inside I am old. I hate the fun things you love. When I watch Rebel Without a Cause, I think "How do these sensible adults deal with these unreasonable, crazy kids? They're just so unreasonable and crazy!" My priority is the state of the upper boards. So if I see a noticable spike in the number of stupid rants posted 'upstairs', AR is gone. Boom. Poof. I don't care how much you like it. I will glory in its destruction, and use patronising phrases like "I'm taking your toys away" with unabashed glee.


But if things stay cool... it stays. So yeah, go nuts.

I am angry about this. Will you direct me to the proper place to rant?

OMG ANGRY RANTING, SQUEEEE!!!

I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

We don't need more angry ranting, we just needed a better home for it.

I hope you keep in mind that with the return of people who actually take the FE side in the debates, the rate of angry rants may increase.
