That wee weird group of DBerry, Vino and Tuff Gong really are fuckin pathetic, man. Middle aged men who do nothing other than bitch and attack people on here. Their non abusive posting must max out at 10%, ffs. Saddest fuckin eejits on the board.

Zero self awareness as they ruin thread after thread complaining about how Haggis ruins the forum.

I'm sure they cried off like a bunch of little bitches about how they were leaving the forum because of Haggis :lol: ...yet here they are. Crawled back after a matter of hours.

Sad as fuck.

You want to know? Whatever, fine. Twenty years ago, I had a bad case of high school angst. I had a close friend from childhood who turned out to be a fucking nut. It was the height of school shooting hysteria, and everyone in our year used to joke about us going apeshit. We knew exactly how we'd do it too, of course, except since we didn't live in America it was never ever on the cards. So we'd pretty much just joke about it with each other, both being weird intense kids.

I was very unhappy at school and at home, and so was he. After high school I was sick of everything in my life, and decided to do some travelling around the cheapest, easiest place outside of Australia. I worked outside and was somewhat nomadic for a bit. I moved south in the winter when the orchards closed up, and found a flat and a job. Joined an established social cricket team a few months later and made some good friends. Met a workmate's flatmate, and all of a sudden I had a girlfriend and a good social circle. So I stayed. And that's about it. Now I have a nice low-key life, a worthwhile job that I'm good at, I visit back home every year or so, I'm starting to think about buying a house next year with my missus, and I haven't thought about or posted about 17 year old me in years. Literally years. It was not a time that I have happy memories of or wish to dwell on, and I have a pretty happy life now.
Okay cool, thanks for the info. I was curious, and even if you had been on the verge of it, it doesn't mean you would be beyond redemption, as 17 and 37 are very very different, and people sometimes are mentally unwell and then get better. That said, obviously without treatment, I'd find it unlikely that someone capable of mass murder at 17 would just "get better" without intervention.

Here's a question though...and it might even be difficult to know yourself, but how much do you think was joking and how much genuine rage was there back then? Like if your friend's dad had guns lying around the house, do you think there's any risk it would have happened, or you might have gone after a particular bully or just tried to scare people?

You don't have to answer obviously, but it's interesting to me. There's an American guy who did a TED talk about how he was nearly a high school shooter.

Mat Caldren or whatever the fuck his name is does literally nothing here except cry about Johnstown and I either. Add him in, the boring little cunt.

Obviously there's a million miles between talking/joking about something like that, and actually doing it. I would be fine with answering your questions, as it all seems like something that was another person in another life. It was a long time ago, and nothing in my life is the same now. I never think about that time. But honestly, I can't be fucked answering your questions and then having whatever I type thrown back in my face (and distorted and lied about) by these same three or four fuckwits every week for the next ten years. I mean, that's what they're here for. And how long before they're sending shit to my missus or my boss, trying to ruin my life in the real world because they're utter cunts? Anyone want to tell me they're not obsessed enough or pathetic enough to do that?

So it was true.

Haggis at least contemplated it!
Nah. I'm not particularly sadistic. Indifferent/callous yes, but I don't get a kick out of hurting people. And I never had any desire to end my life.

Less of the little, Gladys. I’d rip your fucking arms off if I so wish.

I’ve already stated to you on several occasions that the only reason I post over here now (which is pretty rare) is to troll you so I don’t why you keep sobbing over the same old shit.

Why do I keep trolling you ? Because it’s so much fucking fun to watch you unravel over what is otherwise a throwaway ten second effort for me.

Now please feel free to get another dose of the vapours and construct another 500 word whinge on why we are ruining things for you. Maybe you should really think about why you invest so much of your life and care so much about a stupid fucking Internet forum in the first place.

You don't help matters, ffs.

I have a couple of them on ignore. I do not interact with them in any way. I don't see what they post. I never take them off ignore. I never click 'show ignored content'. I have no interest in seeing what they post.They only reason I even know they still exist is because of the nonsense that inevitably comes from other posts around them.

It works.

The only reason you come here is to bore the shit out of everyone by being a bitchy cunt to a total stranger. That's 100% of everything that you bring to this place.

For years.

And I'm the fuckwit. Righto..... good one. :thumbsup

I ignore the great majority of what they post as well. If they quoted you as much as they quote me, and tried their best to derail as many threads that you appeared in as they can, and kept that up for what? A decade? You'd get the shits with it as well, I reckon.

You don't see how you responding encourages them?

They're like retarded children, ffs.

Ignore them and they will go away. As long as you're responding they're getting what they want. It's not even about you now. It's just them getting some weird fuckin' validation from each other because their lives must be unfuckinbelievably pathetic.

That's the thing, though.

They won't go away.

This is what they're here for. That's the appeal of this place for them. They don't want to discuss anything. They have three or four guys who they want to stalk, and three or four guys who they want to get in a circle jerk with. So that's what they'll do, and that's all they'll do. That's all they can do, apparently. Look at this thread. First post - DBerry the retard being a stupid bitchy cunt. Then 350 posts of adults talking like adults. Then Dale reappears with his dribbling shit and emboldens one or two of the other retards. And now the thread is done. Awesome, right?

Why would I comment? These fuckwits are obsessed with me and will ruin any thread i I appear in. First post of this thread - Dale babbling shit about me, trying to derail it before it even begins. Three hundred and fifty posts later, he reappears again and does he want to add his $0.02 to the discussion? Of course not. He wants to babble shit about me.

These obsessed simpleton fuckwits think and talk about this shit WAY more than I do. Why would I want to address anything with them? They're just worthless simpleton cunts, mate. Fuck them. They want to talk about it, they can start another pathetic fake Twitter account with my avatar and gossip about me and jerk each other off while everyone else completely ignores it because they're legit embarrassed that middle aged men actually think that's cool and funny, instead of sad and shameful. :sad

High School angst? Weird and intense? High school angst is sweating a Biology final. High school angst is fretting about asking a girl on a date. High school angst is not plotting the demise of your classmates via you and a friend wiping them out by whatever means at your disposal. It's not being weird or intense, either. It's called being a Psychopath. As you don't live in America, how were you going to do it?
