|1.||That's funny because...|
What people do on forums to piss off the original poster by copying there first post as there's. See example. It's best to keep all there spelling mistakes and swear words as a sidenote.
Original poster: ok guys today I was at the playground and I saw this huge fat guy eating a burger. Then I wlked over and was like your fat. It was funny.
Poster2: that's funny because... today I was at the playground and I saw this huge fat guy eating a burger. Then I wlked over and was like your fat. It was funny.
|2.||Original Poster Syndrome|
"OPS", Original Poster Syndrome. Symptoms include, but are not limited to, stupidity, lack of spelling and grammar, lack of creativity and originality. Common at websites that begin with "My Life Is".
As defined by MLIA commenter pyrotech.
OPS infected MLIA poster: today I realized that when I make the smiley face with the tongue :P I actually stick out my tongue a little bit when I type it. MLIA
Commenter: Man, why does everyone that posts here have Original Poster Syndrome?
Commenter: Who cares, at least we're the sane ones.
In internet usage, particularly forum message boards, a user who swarms a post with useless commentary. Not considered a spam, as the user will usually post as part of a larger group of users, and the said user will usually think their comment is complimentary or in some way helpful, even though it is not.
The comment is:
1) Usually worthless. "OMG, that's great!" is not as complimentary as they poster believes it to be, and only serves to waste the time of the original poster.
2) Not well thought out. The comment is usually quick, and does not justify itself. No reason is given as to why the user feels the way he / she does about said topic, image, story, etc.
3) Part of a mob mentality. Piranhas don't work alone, unlike most spammers. Their posts are usually followed by a swarm of like-minded posts, fueling the useless flood of empty comments.
NOTE: These types of comments are usually most prevelant on a forum centered around skills development. (Art sites, writing boards, game modification boards, etc.) Where a person skilled in whatever the forum centers on is easily attacked by piranhas and his / her post is quickly devoured.
Original Poster: "Hey Guys, I just finished this 1200 DPI artwork, can you give some honest critique so I can improve myself?"
Piranha3083: "OMG! You are my favorite person ever! 111! Have my baby!"
Piranhaman111: "Doood! You have mad skillz! OMFG! 1337!
Prinininsenhna: "ROFLES. SO GOOOOD! I LOVE IT!"
Original Poster: "That doesn't help me at all, that was completely pointless!"

Dude, did you even read what the OPer wrote before you made that comment?
|7.||Countdown to Distinction|
When a person or "people" find your online post humorous wait until you--- "the poster" is offline so they can re-post your bulletin without giving any credit to the original poster (eg: You) with minimal repercussions.
This situation commonly presents itself when either
1. ur too drunk to deal with (ppl r scared of u!)
2. they hate u! but like what u post and want to re-post using their other profile. (which make the distinction null and void) and they rape all the credit.
3.They r too drunk to remember or copy paste the original poster!
4.If your post succeeds in being posted u have achieved the Countdown to Distinction "DiStinktion"
If reposter change the video size to larger than ur original post...they fail! but so do u for having them on ur friends list~
