Why was my post tagged for asking a valid question and again why did this guy either have my name in thread views or none at all
Posted: Posted September 24th
Edited September 24th by KnokkelMillennium

As far as I know there is always a name that comes with posts so why the fuck was my name there when no one else was? I don't want this obvious troll abusing whatever the fuck and framing me for whatever the fuck. There's been enough of that in the past already.

What exactly do you think you're being framed for?

As for your tagged question:

As far as I know, the Thread Views tab only shows people that have an account and are signed in to that account when they view the thread.

Making those dumb posts. It wouldn't be the first time someone has tried that.

That's all that needed to be said then. No need to tag it. Well maybe that was a good idea but I wouldn't have had to make this thread.

No argument here.

Posted September 24th by Count Dooku

I didn't tag your reply but I would assume that it was tagged because it has nothing to do with the posted topic. Your reply would just lead to a chain of more replies not related to the posted topic. If you made a separate post in General or Help I doubt it would be removed.

No one thinks you posted the post because it clearly says it was posted by Confused_Religious_Man.

Hasn't stopped people from associating me with random names in the past vocally. Which is exactly why I was concerned.

This. Especially when it's the first reply.

I mean I really doubt the "british" guy is serious anyway.

Posted September 24th by KnokkelMillennium

I was definitely under the impression that those posts are effectively shitposts on their own.

Posted September 24th by Count Dooku

I'm not convinced that British/Welsh/Concerned/etc. is trolling. Having interacted with autistic people on forums in the past, I must say that his behavior looks a lot like that of an ASD person.

Which is odd considering you suggested he is trolling before I did. And I originally told you that I didn't buy it. Wew. But fine maybe trolling is too harsh and I said that in a spur of the moment. But it seems rather clear they're just shitposting non-seriously. Shitposting as in making a pointless post and in this case it would be pointless because none of what is being said is likely actually happening.

But sure that could be the case. But I think in this case it's pretty safe to say they're probably intentionally just shitposting regardless of their condition which is probably what I should have said instead of trolling.

If it is shitposting it's in the right place, yeah? I mean General merged together from things like pointless where it's all pointless and I guess all shitposting.

I didn't say it should be removed or anything.

Edited September 24th by KnokkelMillennium

Ah so you didn't. I thought that's where it was going. I guess that's the only place where shitposting can occur.

Posted September 24th by Fox Forever

If it's 100%% confirmed to be shitposting, it should be removed. Regardless of what it is though I don't want to see witch-hunting on the site, particularly not as the first reply because that just drags the site down into whatever bullshit you're trying to start.

It might be trolling but we really do not know. I don't think there's enough reason to assume that it is a troll. Confused Welsh Gamer has been one of the most consistent pillars of recent Gametalk history (aside from his fancy of changing names).

Posted September 24th by Vandy

As if I meant it as witch-hunting and not just wondering why the fuck that was happening. Albeit I didn't word everything as nicely as I possibly could but you have to keep in mind this mentality comes from things like the witch-hunting that happened to me because of random names unknown names and similar exploits that would be used against me.

Posted September 24th by KnokkelMillennium

You should know that wasn't my intention and you should know that I had my reasons for asking. But by saying this, I could accuse you of doing the same thing right now. Funny how that works isn't it?

Edited September 24th by KnokkelMillennium

Like I said, I should have probably just said shitposting instead. But Xhin seems overzealous now so if I call it shitposting even as in a pointless post apparently it's in danger of getting removed which I don't think it should be even if it's misleading. Man I love it when even the attempts to fix things result in things getting worse.

Edited September 24th by KnokkelMillennium

The posts are amusing and usually show up when the site has an inactive day. Leave him alone

"But Xhin seems overzealous now so if I call it shitposting even as in a pointless post apparently it's in danger of getting removed which I don't think it should be even if it's misleading" Shut the fuck up about things you know nothing about. This wasn't even about him.

Edited September 24th by KnokkelMillennium

Chill out man. Get off the internet for an hour.

I actually already did that, I just happened to see a new post by the time I did. But seriously how the fuck do things always end up this way on this site?

Posted September 24th by KnokkelMillennium

Because it's a wonderful site with a wonderful and rich culture.

@IKM you said you would try to not have such a doomsday view of the site not too long ago. Are you still trying to uphold that? If so you just fell off the wagon.

@Knuckles Xhin's tone in his last response was pretty harsh I agree. I don't know that you were trying to start anything but your initial tagged reply could come across as accusatory towards Religious Man (insinuating that he was in your account; I think you often question his posting intentions too). Xhin's intentions for tagging your reply seemed good in that he simply wanted to prevent the post form heading down this path. I don't think anyone is too concerned with the semantics behind shitposting or trolling and your usage of one over the other. I certainly am not.

Anyway I think you answered your own question and chief confirmed it in Religious Man's post:

"Or do posts sometimes go through without a name in thread views and I'm overthinking it?"


chiefsonny: BINGO

Do you have other concerns before we wrap this up?

Posted September 24th by Vandy

but your initial tagged reply could come across as accusatory towards Religious Man (insinuating that he was in your account


Because I was asking if that is why it was happening. Ya it could and ya maybe I could have worded it better but that wasn't on my mind at the time.

Anyway I think you answered your own question and chief confirmed it in Religious Man's post:


But I needed confirmation and Dooku answered it first anyway. Thread just spiraled into something else afterwards.

I think you often question his posting intentions too


Maybe a few times, otherwise I just implicated his posts aren't serious. But you could find me defending him against what Null said for example.

Trolling can tend to imply something negative about the person and their intentions. Shitposting can simply be pointless and thus they may be posting something misleading but they may not have negative intentions. That's what I meant.

Better?
