....or "What should my new sig be?

These are posts that deserves awards:

My suggestion is that Islam is a greater threat than some possibilities of WMD developments. A pre-emptive nuclear strike on Mecca and Medina would serve the West well in seeding deep doubt in the devout Islamists--if the holy sites go up in mushroom clouds, that would beg the question: "Where is your Allah now?"

I don't know if its all that good of an idea to feed attention to the types of people who write absurd things for attention. The extremist attention seekers become the norm and they have to find some way to keep pushing the envelope to get reactions.

TL;DR: Let's be careful not feed the trolls.

I like owls quote ;)

There's bound to be a slew of epic quotes in the MP3-beating CAR compression thread, along the lines of:

Have you tried decompressing it?


The one quoted by owl is a classic, though.

There's a goldmine of inanity in the "Hairspray" thread.

I think my favorites are from the wonderfully insane abaraba.

And a few others where he comes back with different aliases to argue his points.

Also, the hairspray thread reminded me of the "ok" thread... but i couldn't find it again.

ALso... this topic comes up like every 3 or 4 months it seems.... mostly I think because someone insists you EAT ROPE, and the n00bs don't understand.

This is currently my all time favorite:

I already pointed out the insanity of this little nugget in the thread that it came from. But it does surprise me that, on Gamedev.net, clearly advocating genocide is not an offense even worthy of an official warning, whereas other comparatively minor offense, such as arguing with moderators or insulting other members, would get someone suspended or banned.

Edit: Oops! He did get a warning for it. Thanks for correcting that one Hodgeman.

On a lighter note, there have been some pretty crazy threads in previous years. Two of my all-time favorites were the iPod-Girl-present-giving fiasco and the notorious MMO Hockey Game thread.

He did get a warning for that, as did the people who went overboard in their 'STFU' responses.

There was that one guy who went through a phase where his insult of choice was "incompetent Greek". It's not the wildest thing ever said here, but it's the most bizarre thing that's stuck with me.

I remember a few years backs. There was a user who's username had something to do with pirates. But I remember he was SO random. And he had rating that was in the HIGH negatives. It was so high that in one thread everyone rated him up and he was still at 0. Crazy.
