Discussion in 'Moopy Moop' started by American guy, Jul 19, 2014.
Yay or Nay
Are we talking about Jantelagen? From my shallow understanding, all the brouhaha is typically a passionate knee- jerk reaction. Or a dramatic outburst devoid of ill intentions. It probably has less to do with an aversion to strong personalities as a whole but more of a directed response to a comment in particular
Anyway, the answer is quite obviously NEIN
I don't know and was going to avoid this thread until more details were disclosed. But since you don't know either I guess back.its okay to come
It's a Scandinavian ideology that the tallest nail gets hit first. Quite the opponent of being the centre of attention in favour of keeping a middling profile
Oh JTK, you're never going to become a crossover poster if you start randomly dropping obscure Swedish words into Moopy Moop topics.
What the frig is this?
moopy used to be really resistant to shit posters, sadly those days are gone.
which reminds me, can we have a nice old fashioned banning game?
I started one. It got about 5 votes and 3 replies so I abandoned it. Just no appetite for it any more.
I looked for Jantelagen in the members list to see what they'd been posting that caused the kerfuffle.
I can imagine VoR baiting this one to post more...
"You're a great poster and people need to see that. Post something in Moopy Moop"
"Oh God no. Just a topic that seems a little clever so the academic posters like me can get involved... Also make sure you use lower case on the title. That'll look really good"
"You're the best VoR"

I did too.
A few years ago, yes. It's become much more tolerant in recent year. If I had a penny for every "WHAT IS THIS SHIT?" circa 08-10 I would have immigrated to Singapore.
I think it depends how far a person is willing to take their individualism.
I was secretly hoping you would drop these little bombs before or during MR.
BABES YOU AINT PIONEERING INDIVIDUALISM
Babes I am. This is it.
Ironically I might have stood out a bit too much with my Swenglish :p My bad
So is this where every queen comes to pretend that she had individualism and that she struggled with it against all the other close minded queen? LOL
What about me? I would consider myself quite far removed from the Moopy demographic and therefore quite individual with a very specific (weirdish) personality. Yet all those closed-minded Queens let me stay.
This is my favourite post of the day
I think we should talk about this over dinner?
Just for clarification I was asking a question not making a statement.
And I wasn't replying to you
Who me? I wasn't responding to you.
But you're about to piss me off interrupting my slow and sizzling seduction of Floppet.
I swear that I thought that was a quote of my post. Oh well, carry on.
You remind me of the character in your avatar on the scene where they put the shoe on her head
Do you mean dinner or tea? Because here in the north of England the meal called dinner is the one we have around midday and the one we have early evening is tea. Also, you don't mind if Mr F tags along too do you?
How about Tuesday at 7pm in the Black Horse?
Sure he can watch... I mean come along
Will you daughter be attending
Tea! "Black horse' something about that title makes me think its the place to be.
I'll even pick up the tab, but if your family comes along we'll have to go to Mcdonalds.
Oh and would Mr F mind sitting a few tables away?
Awful. Just awful.
Hey Ron I remixed your avatar for you
Love, being anti-voting is about as dull a claim to 'individualism' as you can get. You and about 40% of most Western countries.
Although I suppose being fucking shit definitely passes as a strong personality type.
This is an automated reply I am currently out of the office; if you need to contact me make an appointment with my agent.

I suspect it's pretending to be like that bullying thread from a while ago.
