    How accurate is these definitions of "The Student Room" from the urban dictionary?



    (Original post by Urban Dictionary, def. 1)

    An online message board for students. Most users are smug preening tossers who think anything lower than an A* grade means you fail at life forever and will be doomed to work at McDonalds unless you do Physics, Maths or Chemistry. TSR also has an unhealthy obsession with Oxbridge, engaging in daily masturbation sessions to the Times Online League Tables and exiling anyone who doesn't get into a university within the top 5.

    TSR users won't hesitate to use their signatures to remind you exactly of their A* grades, what their UCAS choices are along with some 'hilarious' lolcat picture that takes ages to scroll past. Politically, TSR users are extremely left wing, so if you dare say anything bad about immigration, multiculturalism, Islam, feminists, the EU, Marx or the Labour party, you will be torn to pieces, called any combination of the words 'scum', 'racist', 'sexist', 'fascist', 'bigot' or worst of all; 'Tory'. Yes, support the Tories and you might as well tattoo a Swastika on your arse and put "HEIL HITLER" as your sig. There is also a 'rep' system. If you aren't a raging left winger who bums Marx and hails multiculturalism as the Second Coming, prepare to get negged to hell and back. If you want rep, start arse-licking the members with high rep. These tend to be the biggest ***** of all, holding themselves in such high esteem that if their head were any further up their arse, they'd be ingesting stomach acid.

    Example of a discussion on The Student Room:

    "I think the current economic situation wasn't only caused by the bankers, but Labour's overspending as well."

    Reply: "OMMFMFFFG NO IT WAS THATCHER AND TORY SCUM LIKE U STEALIN FROM THE POOR NEG NEG NEG NEG NEG NEG"

    Your current rep: -1000 (and that's if the *******s are feeling generous)

    "Hey I got my results back. I got a B in English Literature, an A in Maths and a B in ICT."

    Reply: "HAHAHAHA ABB YOU SUCK, YOU'RE DUMB, YOU WILL FAIL LIFE 4EVER. AND YOU DO ICT, LOL MICKEY MOUSE SUBJECT. I GOT A*A*A*. KNOW WHY? BECAUSE IM OXBRIDGE MATERIAL
    (Original post by Urban Dictionary, def. 2)
    A large British student forum that is 99% inhabited by geeks and nerds who spend the best part of their days talking about schools and universities whilst also pretending they're cool and get laid at parties every weekend (whilst having 300,000+ post counts), whilst also discussing how they did in their latest exams, as well as *****ing about how they ONLY got an A on (insert GCSE here) or ONLY 598/600 marks in their AS level Physics exam and how they are demanding a remark for 600/600, because obviously it doesn't matter about the fact they have an A. MUST GET THAT REMARK.

    For some reason, they're all obsessed with Oxbridge and the other top 5 universities, and don't seem to acknowledge that getting less than A* in your GCSE's or A's in your A-levels doesn't make you thick and doesn't doom you to ex-polytechnic universities (what's wrong with them anyway?)

    Politically, the forum is very left-wing, so if you mention ANY negative point about immigration, islam, etc. prepare to be bashed to smitherines in the debate topics.

    - Typical discussion on The Student Room -

    Geek Girl: I got my GCSE's back today. I got 3 A*, 5 A's and 4 B's. I'm so happy. I'm doing four A levels.

    Geek Boy: OMFG. HAHAHAHA. YOU FAILED YOUR GCSES AND YOU FAILED AT LIFE. YOU'LL NEVER GET INTO OXBRIDGE UNLIKE ME, I GOT 12 A* AND I'M DOING 6 A LEVELS .

    Geek Girl 2: Just 12 A*?! I GOT 15 A*
    YOU'RE BOTH THICK. I'M CLEARLY THE BEST OBBRIDGE CANDIDATE HERE

    .. and you know the rest

    I disagree with the "left wing" stuff now. TSR certainly used to be very left wing, but I think it's changed over the last couple of years.

    Lol I don't see TSR as left-wing, the majority to me seem against feminism, Islam, don't like the Labour party etc. Maybe that's because I just see thread titles rather than look through them and read the reactions.

    You need to look at the Encyclopaedia Dramatica entry on TSR, I would link to it but I would get carded :lol:

    Edit - Copied it in. Had to remove the bit that refers to specific users tho

    Plz don't ban me! :afraid:

    Edit2 - Unfortunately the bit about negs is a bit outdated :

    ED Entry

    The Student Room, known as*TSR*to its*serious*users, is a British*forum-based website devoted to the discussion of*college. In practice, however, it serves as a*lol-cow*ranch where*idiotsgather to 'offer' each other 'advice' about 'subjects' not even related to the question "How do I got education?". PerhapsEngland's most fetid cesspool of*unwarranted self-importance*on the*Intertubes,*at least 100% of TSR posters*claim*to have seven or more A-grade A-levels (the equivalent of a GPA of around 5.5 for the*Ameri******reading this).

    Particularly troll-able*forums*include:

    University discussion, where*16-year-old girls*and*emo fagswhine about how they're being*persecuted*by the university application system just because they spent all their school life in a spiral of*angst*and*internet disease*so now don't have any qualifications and will end up riddled with*AIDS, dying in a box in an alley somewhere. Or they fight over the pros and cons of top-flight universities that they have no chance of getting in to anyway.*SPOILER: Ur goin 2*ITT Tech,*******s.Health and relationships, also containing many who have, or soon will have,*AIDS. Provided one is subtle enough to rein in the*h8*so as to avoid*B&jolnir*from the fascistic mods, you will find a*looooooong*list of those with*low self-esteem*just waiting to be*e-pushed*into*an hero*status.


    **
    “*
    I dont know what's wrong with me but I just want to die. After I was rejected by the first girl I ever fell in love with I just can't see a point to living my life anymore... I do not wish to seek any professional help because I know that it will only make me feel even more inferior. I cry almost every night now. I feel a horrible pain of emptiness in my chest almost all the time.

    Features

    TSR includes a handy reputation system so you can TELL that your trolling is going well! Every time your comments cause*someone*to feel*butthurt, they will*neg-rep*you. The moar red boxes*you*have, the closer*you*are to*The Prize!

    The*Potential Trigger*flag is a flashing billboard pointing you in the direction of*lulz; theretarded*site actually has it as policy to*draw attention to*the fact that a poster is in a fragile emotional state and thus particularly easy to*talk*into chugging*shotgun mouthwash. What a service!

    It has its own gay little*Model UN, too. For the love of God...

    Protips

    If you can't troll The Student Room, you are*doing it wrong. Even*serious*posters are often lambasted with the*troll smiley*in what seems to be compulsive reactionary butthurt.

    Still, for*lulz*maximisation:

    Inform the "Trouble making friends" posters that the reason*noone*lieks them is because they are horrible people with disgustingly*ugly*faces.Tell the self-diagnosed-anxiety-disorder-sufferers that they actually don't have a disease.Attempt*e-psychiatry; other TSR users love to join in!Claim to have a terminal illness, then after 300 sympathy posts of "OMG I'm so sorrrreeeeeeyyyy!" have rolled in, point out*YHBT.Say "DO IT ******" in*suicide*threads (i.e.*99%*of TSR threads) and watch the neg rep and thus lulz roll in from butthurt "humanitarian" lolcows.[1]Make the women of TSR aware of their*proper place, writing off the*LGBT types*as delusional transvestites.Suggest serious discussion of BNP policies; watch*******ry socialist types*fall over themselves to insult you.Suggest psychology is a worthless degree. Since 99% of TSR users are either*social sciences students*or*CSIII graduates, you stand a chance of sparking a civil war.Express even*slight*misgivings regarding any aspect of*Israel's foreign, domestic, or military policies. You can be sure of drawing*copious quantities*of*red boxes*from the forum's hordes of*skullcap-wearing,*kosher-chomping,*WTC-doing*Yidds. Even*serious business*posts on Jew-related topics have been known to "mysteriously vanish" if a passing*mod*doesn't consider them sufficiently*pro-Zion. The Student Room? Moar liek The Jewdent Room, amirite?TSR has a strong tradition of*parody threads*created by changing one word. If a thread seems at all formulaic, expect multiple fail attempts to turn x thread into a forced meme.

    Originally posted by: The forum sig of all*male*TSR users.Good day, fellow internet users.

    Permit me, if you would, to*divulge*the results of my recent scholarly examinations, for your elucidation.

    GCSE RESULTS*(which I found laughably simple, I might add)

    English Literature*(Edexcel June 21st, 11.07am starting time, 2:15 long) - A* - 100%*
    English Language*(Edexcel June 18th 9.16am starting time, 2 hours each) - A* - 100%*
    German*N.B separated into 4 sections in which I gained 100% each A**
    French*N.B separated into 4 sections in which I gained 100% each A**
    Mathematics*(Edexcel June 16th 1.04 starting time 2hours each) - A* - 100%*
    History*(Edexcel May 24th 5.09am starting time 2 hours each) - A* - 100%*
    Latin*(OCR 100% in all sections) - A* - 100%*
    Science*(AQA, all taken separately, A* in each) - A* - 100% multiplied by 3*
    Music*(Edexcel - 25th May 3.25am) - A* - 98%, presently back for the 5th re-mark*
    Geography*(OCR - 6th June 10.09am) - A* - 100%

    A-LEVEL RESULTS*(As I knew I would, I got my 7 A's, obviously, and 100% all but one)

    Advanced Hyper-Mathematics: A - 100%*
    English Language: A - 100%*
    English Literature: A - 100%*
    Hairdressing: A - 97% (I have written to my Local Education Authority to complain)*
    Non-Euclidian Tomography: A - 100%*
    Russian History: A - 100%*
    Jew Studies: A - 100%*

    As I am sure you will agree,*this marks me out as a most accomplished man of letters, and I hope you shall bear the above in mind when addressing my superior person during our time together on The Student Room 'internets forum website', as it were.

    I shall, of course, be taking up residence at*Oxford University*subsequent to the conclusion of my summer vacation, on*safari*in Rhodesia. The interview procedure, I might say, made it particularly easy for one as gifted as I to astonish the learned professors with the bredth and extent of my educated intellect. As such they have offered me an unconditional place at*Saint Fizzlewick's Boy's College.

    How spiffing.

    Gays

    Chronicling each and every*AIDS-infested*lolcow*within The Student Room is an inevitably futile endevour, as*no-one cares. Still, the existance of*the subs*makes the process slightly easier. These*"coolest"*TSR members are the*"social elite"*of the forum; the*****ing losers*who pay £3.50 a month to hang out in 'The Shoutbox', where they discuss TSR drama and who had sex with who. As subs frequent this article fairly often, it is*Encyclopedia Dramatica's profound honor to tell you that*YOU ALL ****ING FAIL IT.

    The rogue's gallery of failure includes such*luminaries*as:

    , 3105, A Stranger in Moscow, a_t, Acaila, Anatheme, Apagg, Ascient, Aula, Bagration, blackhawk, BruceTaylor, Bubbles*de*Milo, burningnun, Calcium878, Christien, ChunkymunkyDJC, Coy Girl, CyclopsRock, d0mz, Democracy, Ethereal, farhan, Folderol, Frannnnn, generalebriety, Gypsy King, HCD, JakePearson, Jangrafess, JessicaW, Jonah Ramone, kexy, kimoso, Kolya, Laus, LawBore, letsdothetimewarpagain, littleshambles, Llamageddon, Magnum Opus, Mastermind`, mc_watson87, Melana, Melancholy, Mithra, Mr. Mortell, MSB, Mckel, natty_d, necessarily benevolent, NoHands, Nynyflower, paperclip, PeeWeeDan, Profesh, PQ, Rainy, robinson999, samba, Seanisonfire, SiaSiaSia, sil3nt_cha0s, SoapyDish, socrates, SuicideCommando, ToastyCoke, Toy Soldier, Trigger, tropical-twist3, TuckingFypo™, Tufts, Undiscovery, valjean, Vicious Fishes, wes, wzz, Yuffie, and*many more.

    Some of these people are the most self important *******s ever to have graced the internet. If encountered on The Student Room, these ********s should be immediatelly milked for lulz. For*moar*details, see below!
