Do I even want to know what went down here?
I don't know what to put here right now.
Pulled into war to serve a vision;
That's supposed to last a thousand years.
Part of a machine;
Unstoppable, as merciless as tidal waves.

Cannon to left of them,

Rode the six hundred.'

Like high school, popularity here is relative, and does it really make sense to try to fit perceived expectations? If you piss off a few people by asking for help or venting, what of it? They don't have to look at the thread, and there's quite a few people who seem eager to cheer you up and/or help you with your problem. I'm sure spam can feel like 'teh 3l1t3 clubz' because of how close knit the people who call this forum home are, but as many people will say, don't take anything people say seriously. If somebody's a crusty jackass, it's not representative of the entire forum. I've never felt excluded whenever I post here, and the couple of times I've got in small spats with people, it's easy enough to ignore it and move on. Don't let people get to you, focus on the nice people!
But since you asked for laughter...
