    Lol you don't actually know how people behave in real life.

    And there's nothing actually wrong with people posting ama or random chat threads. Some people like them others don't. You don't have to click on the link etc.

    And i don't think it's a popularity contest.
    It's a forum, people post stuff. You can't be cool on a forum lol

      I've never claimed to be 'entertaining' so I don't know where that's come out of.

      Are you trying to get banned, or something? Cos if you want one then I could just call on one of bezzie mod mates to do it for you.
      Absolutely pathetic , the femdom relationship between the subs and mods on this site makes me sick.

        I didn't say I do

        I agree however, I am entitled to express my opinion in this thread, just like everyone else is. Personally I believe that some users make threads/post views that will make them stand out from the rest, they do this to be a 'TSR celebrity'. The worst thing is that a lot of users are inclined towards the herd mentality, thus they will boast about the most 'popular' users at the time to try and fit in. It's incredibly annoying and resembles playground behaviour.

        And i don't think it's a popularity contest.
        It's a forum, people post stuff. You can't be cool on a forum lol
        Some people think they can be cool/celebs on here, that's the sad thing about it.

          I like how you said it's not a popularity contest, then proceeded to name three very popular users who you think are better than the others...
