TWJ, I just realized that you might be the only person on PD to get your own Unlimited thread and still come back to become a regular and well-liked contributor. Kudos!

No regrets, no going back. If I hadn't met real people here that I came to admire first I'd have disappeared. As it stands I'm VERY happy to have found a peer group of decent folks. I kinda want a shirt that says

"PD .com taught me the true meaning of butthurt" or something.

 :cheers:

I think this is unprecedented. Good thing you didn't take lessons from this guy:

We can all take lessons from AKK. I went to him for music lessons, and now I'm rather well paid by the CIA. Thanks Ambassador Klok Kaos!

Link is 404 so... yes. I remember seeing this AKK for a bit, heard his "music", scrolled past his walls of words to read the responses. Wasn't interested.

There was a feeling that all the noob fools I was seeing come in somehow NEEDED to be asses. I was one too, but not because I came here to be one. I'd no real prior experience with forums and utterly no idea what to expect but had a good grip on Eris and Discordianism, or so I thought. Jumped in, got trolled hard, learned my first real taste of Internet culture here and have no regrets.

I didn't really understand that, but I'm even now still learning about this place and the folks here. I've seen other sides of "Discordia" now, but PD is the only one I have much respect for that I've seen so far. The "disco" faction particularly riles me because it is likely the first thing folks will see about Discordianism by attrition of a sort, but they suck vast amounts of donkey peen and expect you to join in or somehow consider them enlightened for it.

I have heard that you are the Messiah so... any advice?

Hi Guys!  :wave:

Just passin' through. Saw that my last post before yesterday was exactly a year ago, so I thought I would celebrate it.

Wizard Joseph - sorry the link didn't work. It means you miss out on AKK's 'troll lessons'. Shame he doesn't have a student testimonial section so we could write back and explain how he was completely terrible at trolling and his time at PD was measured in minutes rather than days. Still, not actually the worst of the 'UNLIMITED thread' offenders IIRC.

Basically, congratulations. I believe you are so far, the only person who climbed out of the 'unlimited' category and made it to regular poster. Think we need to study how that happened and leave a sticky for new members. 'The redemption of Wizard Joseph - how to turn the lemons of butthurt into the lemonade of acceptance'. (working title)

Ahh, the sweet citrus smell of group dynamics.

Greetings Mang'!

I'm not certain that I can explain how it is that I came to be where I am, but I can attempt to recall my perspective and personal thoughts some.

I suspect that a fair amount of the initial issues I had were due to lack of contact with "The Internet" in a social sense. For me it was a thing I used to acquire knowledge, not a place I look to for social relations. I literally had never heard and misunderstood the term butthurt for example.

There were very weird, synchronistic IRL things on my end of this reality tunnel we call PD that I don't fully recall, but that lent a sense of the need for caution and I quickly realized that it meant that I should read more than I post, and I did. I still managed to make an ass of myself several more times, but that was now part of a learning process. It was getting the UNLIMITED thread that made me realize that there was a certain social order to things and factors at play that I didn't fully understand.

It was bizarrely synchronistic that Roger chose to mention garbage collection in the thread title as the "Wizard" character in the ongoing fictional cosmos I've long been working on is first taken in by "incorporeal beings" that might be called "garbage spirits" shortly after barely surviving arriving on Earth and discovering that he is effectively marooned and nearly powerless on a profoundly hostile world.

I was provoked to writing some of it down on a thread somewhere around here.

I can tell you that I am a statistical outlier testing at IQ 190 for linguistic comprehension, pattern recognition, and symbol interpretation but otherwise only on the bright side of average for a composite score of 155. I'm not a college graduate. I will be one day.

I have a thread otherwise about myself posted. I'll add to it again pretty soon, I'm a slow writer and am using an Android phone for Internet these days.

 If I might ask what was your first experience with PD? I'm also very curious to hear your or any other folks' impressions and will happily answer any questions as I can.

I kind of wonder what the average IQ of PeeDee is? After we exclude obvious outliers like Shandor, of course.

I have a feeling that it's a couple of standard deviations to the right.

To be honest, I'd be more interested in seeing what our collective EQ is.

Probably higher than you would expect.

On the inverse from the EQ scores.
