Origin of the word: It stemmed from the word "Prominent."more...
The first time it was notably used was on Jan 20, 2004, when a GDer named Troggard started a namedrop thread. It shortly became a HOT (hang-out thread) called the GPM (Gaia's Prominent Members) in where the higher ranking members of the forum chit-chatted; often excluding the non-prominent members from their chatter. Other HOTs sprang up in the forum; GNPM, GBP, et cetera. When the mods decided the HOT threads were no longer GD material, they moved the HOTs to the Chatterbox. Many of the members still gather in the GPM guild, along with other, newer prominent members.

Hollister is a company also owned by Abercrombie & Fitch.
they sell high-priced clothing for no reason to pull off a "classy" and "sophisticated" look for young teens.
The company also turns your child into a complete hoebag. Preps and bottle-blonds rave about this company, because all they want to do is get fingered every night by someone new.
The whores who are stupid enough to buy this crap say that everyone else is "jealous." everybody can afford that crap, it's just that they're smart, and don't want to spend their ,oney on soemthing so stupid.
"Oh my god, that girl is wearing last month's Judy crop cami from Hollister! Let's make fun of how she isn't wearing the overpriced shit sold right now!"
Tumblr is a place for 'cool', 'different' people to come and be 'cool' and 'different'. They like to moan about how they have issues with their love lives, even if they're only 14 and haven't ever been in love. On Tumblr you have to be either tragic, emo, scene kid or vintage. Essentially they're all pretentious losers who take pictures of their feet on beaches, love hearts, themselves reading or writing, or pictures of Starbucks. Refer to the: 'Dickhead song' On Youtube for a better grasp of a Tumblr person's real life. They pretend they have problems and post pictures of them cutting themselves, then they claim they're not just doing it for attention. While a normal person may be like: 'Oh I like this, but I'll keep that to myself because not everyone has to know this rather unusual fact about me', Tumblr whores are like: 'I LIKE THIS AND I DON'T CARE WHO KNOWS. IT IS WHAT CREATES ME!' They write shitty poems, love songs and post crappy drawings. All they do on Tumblr is whine, tell people not to talk about Tumblr (possessive bitches), post their running jokes, blog pictures of hot guys from emo bands, talk about screamo (you're not allowed to like other types of music and you MUST rave on about how much you like Screamo and how you've been judged about it your whole life), reblog every single pretentious or cute thing that comes their way. Individual and feel the need to shove it down your throat. Tumblr...for pretentious losers.more...
