Recently I became a member of a teen message board, mainly to generate more traffic to my website. In recent weeks however my message board experience has turned ugly and I have found that scores of fellow teen message board members hate me for reasons unknown to me. It all started off with me posting a message in attempt to persuade innocent teens to visit my site. Shortly after that I found a reply to my message from a young man telling me not to spam (if anyone knows what this means plese tell me because though I asked he never elaborated) and how big a moron and how I would get kicked off the message board. My first mistake was replying to that message even though it obviously was not worth it. I searched for a message he had posted (and there were many since I think his mission is to post and reply to every message) and well my anger overwhelmed me and I told him I didn't even know what spamming is and that he should eat shit and die (so I was angry okay?). What followed was even a surprise to me; someone had read that message of maddness and applauded me for telling that young man off, this post was completely unknown to me. Here is the post and what followed.

thank you I'm glad some one else finnaly realized soulwound is a jackass. He thinks he's tuff but realy he's just a computer junky with no life.

You know what? You are cordually invited to go fuck yourself. Yes, you heard me, go fuck yourself. I guess you shouldn't have gave me your picture if you didn't want me to post it for the world to see. Oh, and you have the best insults ever, "Jackass". I don't think anyone even likes you here, so go away. Whats wrong, did that pictur hit a little to close to home? ------------------ It is your responsibility to keep your profile information up-to-date.

If anyones a jackass ,it's you Conan.I totally agree with Soulwound that you should just get out.I've been here a few days and i already know your a jerk.
Soulwound Senior Member posted August 06, 1999 10:57 PM
Thank You Moongodess. Yes, this "guy" should be kicked out, all he does is insult people. As i said before, i try to be nice to people, but if they do anything against me, it won't be pleasent. I have e-mail flooders, so if you still want to talk down to me, i have a couple thousand e-mails I want to share with you.

You guys are BOTH pretty fucking stupid if you think about it. I mean, you can talk all the shit you want on the net, and it doesn't do SHIT! So you are both wasting your time. Alsom chaces are that one of you is just a little kid, or one of those really old pervs or something. So, both of you, shut the fuck up and stop pissing everyone off like that. Damn!
Notice how kingOFhearts suddenly decided to join in calling both the oringal poster of this message and I "fucking stupid," and "little kids," even though he never even read the reply I wrote to Soulwood and had previously agreed with me on replies I posted to other messages.
Soulwound Senior Member posted August 07, 1999 11:58 AM
I agree King. This is fuckin stupid. A mean, fighting with someone who lives thousands of miles away. But I am telling the truth, I am 15. I can't speak for Conan though. Conan: If you try to start any fights with me in the future, they will go unanswered. ------------------ It is your responsibility to keep your profile information up-to-date.

There!! Now don't you feel a LOT smarter than that dumbass? He's probably some geek who can't get any friends, and so he spends all day on the net looking at porn and shit like that. I feel really sorry for you Conan, but you suck.
--king--
I honestly do not know the ages of many of those who replied but judging from the way they respond I would say that they are 14-15. It makes me wonder how great of a techonoglical breakthrough the internet really is. This message board is apparently a bredding ground for conflict and hate, and in reading other posts a place to write personals ads for teenagers around the globe.

Same here King O. Hearts. I feel sorry for a guy who has nothing better to do than go around diss'n people for no reason. Conan, you poor child. DRACO
Okay, my second mistake was obviously replying to this nonsense. I thought writing this would put an end to everything but I was sadly mistaken.
SPORESgirl Junior Member posted August 09, 1999 10:24 PM
Look, if you're going to be mean to someone and call them a moron then you're asking for them to fight back okay? So don't call me a moron again because you don't even know me so don't go around judging me because of something I did that I didn't know would bother anyone. I don't even know what spamming is oaky? If you're going to be a bitch to me I will be a bitch to you. ------------------
kingOFhearts Junior Member posted August 10, 1999 08:32 AM
Sporesgirl, I really don't understand what the fuck is wrong with people like you. I mean, you spend soooo much time dissin' people who could probably kick the shit out of you in real life. And what do you hope to accomplish? It's such a waste of time, and all it does is piss you off. So, just cuz you're PMSing or some shit doesn 't mean you should fuck up someone else day! --king--
linseyloo Junior Member posted August 11, 1999 12:08 AM
YOU GO KINGY! NOW THATS THE WAY TO TELL SOME ONE OFF. ------------------ Linseyloo:)
Re-reading my reply I still do not uderstand why he said I "spend soooo much time dissin' people who could probably kick my ass in real life". First of all I expressed my anger to Soulwood for calling me a moron and yes I said he should eat shit and die, but I never called him a name or anything (boy I'm petty). Secondly I don't understand why kingOFhearts threw in that comment about ass kicking in an attempt to say in the real world violence is how things are settled, so you better be glad you're not in the real world. Oh God, I only made things worse by posting the next reply.
SPORESgirl Junior Member posted August 11, 1999 10:46 PM I really don't understand what the fuck is wrong with people like you. (Just what kind of problem exactly do you have with me?)I mean, you spend soooo much time dissin' people who could probably kick the shit out of you in real life. (Who exactly am I spending so much time dissin'? And what business is it of yours?) And what do you hope to accomplish?(What exactly do you hope to accomplish from writing this little message?) It's such a waste of time, and all it does is piss you off. (Well isn't that exactly what you're doing?)So, just cuz you're PMSing or some shit doesn 't mean you should fuck up someone else day! (Yes, I'm sure Soulwood cried after reading my message. I know I did after reading yours. And of course I have PMS, every female does, that's how secretly plan to overtake the male population) What are you talking about? I spend so much time dissing someone who could kick the shit out of my in real life? What is this pretend? Look I don't know why you had to write that message and tell me I have PMS but obviously you're as pathetic a loser as me just for writing it. You don't even know me. The internet is a really interesting place where you can say whatever you want to whomever you want regardless of who they are or what kind of person they are. You are there judging me based on a few lines I wrote when I was angry that someone called me a moron. I was simply telling someone not to call me a moron and taht I didn't know I would be making anyone angry by what I did and there you go having to put in your 2 cents. You can be mean to me all you want I guess because it's not like you really count anyway. You're showing just how intelligent of a human being you are by so openly stating that you think everyone can kick my ass.
Soulwound Senior Member posted August 11, 1999 11:27 PM
Oh my god. You think i cried after i read that?!?!? HAHAHH!!! I don't take anything anyones says to me on the internet seriously, and if you did, then you might just have a problem. Thats friggan it. I am staying neutral from now on, and i am not saying anything about anyone anymore. Oh yeah, and if you really were offended and sd about something a internet guy said to you, then you need to get out more and experience the real world. Not everyone is going to be little skippy happy fairys you know, there are a lot of real assholes in the world. -Soulwound ------------------ Click Here To Make Real Money!!! It Really Works!!!
He completely missed my attempt at sarcasm. But notice the final line of his message "Click here to Make Real Money!!!" does that not appear to be an advertisment for some sort of money making scheme? The person who initially called me a moron, and threatened to kick me off the board for advertising, was not posting his own advertisments...unfortunately no one read the initial message so they didn't pick up on that little detail. And so the battle drags on and on, and although I thought there were many different people posting messages reading this now I realize it was only a couple of people, minaly kingOF hearts who continues to name call even after he told me not to diss other people because it is just a waste of time.

kingOFhearts Junior Member posted August 16, 1999 07:43 AM
I was talking to Sporesgirl, Soulwound, cuz I'm on your side in this..... I think that she has got to be the dumbest person in this whole world. She is so full of shit. Sporesgirl, you need to just shut the fuck up and never come back here! Bitch. --king--
This is the message that I took most personally because he totally judged me, saying I am I dumbest person in the whole world. Even though he doesn't know me it hurts, a lot because over the past four years of my life I've had to prove that although many associate my outward appearance with low intelligence (which is wrong no mattter who the person, or what appearance) I am an extremely hard working, bright person who worked hard to get good grades and get into university. Look, I know I am taking this whole thing to hearts when I should have just forgotten about it a long time ago but that's the kind of person I am. I don't like it when people judge me before I have even said a word, and I need to prove to them that they are wrong. Yes, it might be because I am insecure, but until I am a stronger person I will feel like I do have something to prove. Reading these messages I just wanted to scream I am almost 18 years old, I graduated from high school with honours, and I'm studying medicine at a major Canadian Univeristy, but I couldn't you know? Because then I felt (even though I already was) like I would be acting as immature as them and what would it matter anyway since they were not willing to listen.

You know what I'm trying to understand why KindOF Hearts is saying i've got to be the dumbest person in the world and so full of shit, especially after it's all been settled between soulwood and I. Look I think he/she is just trying to start trouble. But don't call be the dumbest person in the world okay? Because I'm not and I don't know what justified that comment. p.s. visit my ezine http://members.tripod.com/~Danda/SPORES.html It's amazing that all of a sudden everyone started saying bad things about me because of that first message that someone who doesn't even know me posted. I don't know how old all of you are but most replies were incredibly immature.
