To MRE (mystery? not really)
« on: February 20, 2015, 01:45:31 PM »


You are not iR-joe. No, you are not. You never were, and you never will be. You really really truly are? No. The only answer is no. No today, no tomorrow, no next fucking week, no next fucking year, and no for all of the rest of forever. You aren't fooling anyone. They have these things called ip numbers, and it allows people to trace your history as well as your geographical location. So cut the shit. No one is fooled. If you keep insisting on attempting to impersonate other members of the community, don't be surprised if the owner of the forums/servers decides to restrict your access until you come clean.

How sure can you really be? I was on DM a few months back and this guy came on claiming he was iR joe. He said he had actually become homeless for a period of time and was not able to get on the net, but had moved to a new place. He seemed to know past history of when me and him used to play on irtdm with vae. That was back when i was still in iR. Dunno but he seemed to know a lot of things only the real iR joe would know

Why so tense? What if it actually is him, and you just look like an asshole for nothing? I mean, what if the guy did move locations? Is that really unbelievable to you?

Just sayin'

How sure can you really be?

Only at least 100% sure. Is that enough? ::)

Why so tense? What if it actually is him, and you just look like an asshole for nothing? I mean, what if the guy did move locations? Is that really unbelievable to you?

Just sayin'

What if space alligators with laser beams come down from planet Zeenu and resurrect the corpse of actor Dennis Farina and make him supreme emperor of the world? If we're gonna ask dumb questions, why not get truly outlandish with it? Why set limits for ourselves? ::) ::)

None of us give a damn about what if's. What we do give a damn about is the fact that this nobody has an IP and location that doesn't even REMOTELY match the one the real |iR|Joe had, nor did he even have an inkling of an idea to connect names like Joe and Poopoppa and Nincompoop together until someone ELSE blurted it out, nor does he have any fucking clue how to play this game at the same level that real Joe would've... cuz he's NOT Joe and he's just some random newbie trying to be clever. Does it need to be explained? Have you ever seen one single competent Q2 player (like the real Joe was) change rigs and/or IP's and magically fucking forget how to play? Even downgrading from a good mouse to a shitty one doesn't account for someone forgetting how to aim the same way that they used to and move the same way that they used to. Not to mention... the real Joe never had a high opinion of me. He wouldn't come back after all this time and pick ME of all people to be overly polite and friendly to and compliment me on anything. He'd say hello to a few other people before stooping to extending any such courtesy to me. He'd also be asking about several other players he used to regularly play with. Is he? Nope. And I won't even bother asking him to name any such people as a way to possibly confirm his identity, because it would be a waste of time. He wouldn't do it. And if he did, he'd still give the wrong answers, and I'd still be just as sure about him as I am right now.

So ALL of the signs indicate that he's full of shit, and NONE of the signs indicate anything else. You people are welcome to debate it and argue it all you want, but you're wrong, period.

I guess you're right and it's not him, but you don't have fly off the handle trying to explain why you think it isn't him. Perhaps going outside and getting some fresh air would get rid of some of that intensity, sir.

Yeah, I must've had a bad childhood or be under a lot of stress at work or going through a divorce or something else, right? There's no way I could just be this much of an asshole naturally, right?

Thing is... I'm fine. No problems here. This guy didn't piss me off. Don't really care that he wants to get his jollies by pretending to be some inactive member of the Q2 clan I'm in. If it's a just a joke or something for him and he wants people to wonder who he really is (obviously by his choice of "MRE" aka Mister E aka mystery for his name... get it yet?), that's fine, I don't care. People are fucking douchebags and weirdos, I'm used to it. Mister comedian can laugh it up all he wants. But any decent comedian knows there's such a thing as "timing". And it's time to find a new joke. He's been telling this one far too long, and I already know how it ends. Give it a rest already. If an attention whore is gonna be waving his arms at me, he should know that eventually I'm just gonna start ignoring him altogether. That's the point of this thread. I'm giving notice. The Joke is over.

What does kinda piss me off is that others who are not him felt the need to butt in and weigh in on this when there's a million other threads of more importance around here they could've responded to. The intention was say it and be done with it, not explain it to 40 people who aren't involved in any way. We could talk about movies we saw. We could talk about politics. We could talk about football. We could talk about cars we'll never have enough money to own. Did we? Nah. We chose to jump in the middle of some drama. Hooray for humanity.

Strange, I thought MRE stood for Meal, Ready to Eat. I guess I come from a different background.
