Concern trolling involves someone opposing an idea or viewpoint, yet acting like they're an advocate for the cause. A concern troll offers undermining criticisms under the guise of concern. Their goal is to sabotage the cause being discussed, and to inspire doubt among group members.

OK, on these pastures I'm happy to call that straight up trolling with added multifaceted dickery.

Just realised I stole that from Valve.

Anyone else hate when people hold a door open for them?
I don't want to have to look at a random person and say thank you every time I go in somewhere at the same time as someone because they held the door open for me. And just now I neglected to thank a man who held a door open and got a very sarcastic "you're welcome." I just want to be left alone when I'm walking around. Anyone else?

People are so odd.

:lol:

I've done that sarcasm before. Even if you didn't want the door held open (?) just say thanks, the strawberry float.

I always do the sarcasm thing if someone doesnt say thank you. Rude banana splits.

If they don't say thank you then I drag them back and slam their head in the door repeatedly Wilson Fisk style.

Learn some manner strawberry floaters! :datass:

The correct response to a sarcastic "you're welcome" is an assured "my pleasure".

To be honest I can't hear the phrase "you're welcome" without thinking of this classic now:

Topic about a fortnite player being banned:

He's 17. Kids do dumb gooseberry fool.

I'm fine with him being banned for violating the rules but ERA should be better than a thread made to laugh at a child.

Knowing this isn’t a minority mindset in America helps you understand the gun control problem.

Someone going for a promotion as an assistant gets told they've been labelled a lazy flirt (that is that they are lazy and a flirt, and not as I first thought that they flirt lazily :lol: :oops:) It's a mostly about office gossip and misunderstandings, but then the 7th paragraph makes you feel less sorry for them.

There was one other person I worked close with 2 years ago that I became very close friends with and texted them to invite them out, they declined, I tried again with a different day, they waited a day and then declined again. I got bummed/bumpain that I had misread things (which i did my best to hide, but was obviously less jovial and a little off the next two or three times i talked to them), and then they stopped replying to emails, stopped coming by my desk, and started glaring and yelling at me when I tried to talk to them. I legitimately do not know what I did that made them act that way - the only thing I can think of is they said their weekend plans got canceled because of a blizzard we had and i smiled a bit out of schaudenfreud, that was the last convo i had before they got mean to me. I did not say or do anything inappropriate and never brought up the text. After about a month they started to reach out again over email, but at that point I was kinda hurt at being ignored and being yelled at, and I’m fairly sure she told other coworkers I had asked her out and had created gossip about me, so I preferred to just ghost (since her new job didn’t interact with mine) instead of making more attempts to save the friendship. I’m pretty sure that made her feel bad, and that created more gossip about me, and that gossip made me feel less and less comfortable about speaking to her at all, and I did my best to avoid her as much as possible until her department got laid off at the beginning of the year. (I say pretty sure because i def heard gossip about me, but have had a few period of mental illness where I’ll hear stuff that isn’t there).

It all worked out in the end, she got the sack. Awkwardness averted. It's just like one of my Japanese Animes.

I never thought we'd get closure to the staydead email story, but here we are.
