And sometimes people are just overreacting.


Everyone trolls. There is no exception.

And besides, i hate those lame forums where everyone is nice to each other. Thats utter BS. If you have passion about something you get worked up and a heated discussion might start. Its not a bad thing and people who cant deal with being called names.. well its the internet. Your fist cant reach through the screen and hit the opposites face. Belive me, most people who are insulting others havent the balls in the real-life to lift a finger when confronted. So there is no point in shitting yourself about some stupid insult from a mental 100 years old.

Gimme thumbs down suckers!
