FrancoFile: Wow.  One snarky comment, and one snarky reply, and I've unleashed a troll-storm.

I think I'm done Farking for a while...


A good thing too. We can do without racists like you.

Yeah, right. And British kids don't collect ASBOs the way they used to collect scouting badges. People won't be using this as a badge of honour and a way to reconstruct the evening's mayhem and to determine whether they had fun during the 48 hours they can't remember from the binge's jolities.

Notes for Non-Brits:
ASBO: Anti-Social Behaviour Order. ASB is anything that annoys a neighbour, the police or a judge. ASBOs give the power to the people--and the police and the courts, to complain about anything, anywhere, at any time, and to tell you to stop doing it. It's the ultimate in Neighourhood Fascism, or would be if they hadn't abolished the pillary, stocks, flogging, etc. In reality it is arbitrary, pointless, futile, etc., everything a law is supposed not to be. Look for it to be abolished in about a decade when the last beak in Beamminster realizes the inanity of the thing.

She wasn't trying to shame him. She was trying to show the world what he was actually like.


Oh, well that's completely different?

I wish I had ASBO here. My next door neighbor is a menace. I've had to call the cops on her twice, once for having a screaming phone conversation after midnight that went on for a good twenty minutes, and another time when she was fighting with two guys who broke her door down!! Landlord won't even throw her out. I'd like to get her dragged into court to get her out of the building.

It's funny. Civilization was arguably created because of alcohol yet it will be, arguably, our downfall.

I wonder if there is a video yet.

fullyautomatic: WRONG!! FAIL!!!!!
You mean *effect not affect. I just love it when people try to seem smart with this one and screw it up. I am a perfectionist when it comes to our language, and this type of thing irks me beyond measure. Please remove whatever college degrees you may have from the wall and place immediately into the shredder. I keep this one bookmarked just for this: http://www.dailywritingtips.com/affect-vs-effect/
Affect is a verb, exception joined with -ion like affection. Effect is a noun, defined as the result of a cause. Used in your sentence it would be: The effect [result of a cause] FF is trying to achieve is a kind of off-hand casualness. Or you could say: FF is trying to affect us in a kind of off-hand casual way.


Tee hee...  This is lulzy. Wrong and lulzy. Lulzy because you threw such a tantrum, and wrong because you are wrong.
Really? You've never heard of a person having a flat affect?


af·fect/əˈfekt/VerbHave an effect on; make a difference to: "the dampness began to affect my health".Pretend to have or feel (something): "as usual I affected a supreme unconcern".NounEmotion or desire, esp. as influencing behavior or action.

THE GREAT NAME: The affect* FF is trying to achieve is a kind of off-hand casualness.

The emotion that FF is trying to achieve is a kind of off-handed casualness.

Both sentences are grammatically correct.

You could be right. I really don't know.

namegoeshere: glmorrs1: fullyautomatic: I quite like the point of the video, and at some moment in our lives those could have been any one of us farkers. Psychologically speaking, public shaming is an extremely effective form of punishment (when used as pure punishment with no reward) (see advanced psychology textbook chapter on punishment vs reward).

No it's not. I work at a pizza joint with a bunch of high school an college students. All these videos do is encourage them to see if they can top them. For a while it was kind of funny, but now it jut makes me weep for the future.

That's like the breathalyzers they used to put in bars. They had to take them all out again when customers were competing for high score.


Yeah, a bartender friend of mine got one for a gift and thought it would help cut down on dealing with wasted assholes. Wrong! He stopped brining it after about a week because he then had to deal with drunk assholes and cleaning up their vomit.

I do the same thing to combat our nation's obesity problem. But some people get "offended" when I make fun of fat chicks.

So it's basically just "texts from last night" with video.

Is this knackered old thread still open to new comments? Jeez the shiat I have to put up with.

StopperMoble, whats with the double quotations. Is it like, one for you, and like, one for your fat ass?

"mock drunk people out in public and shame them"
Isn't this one of the original purposes in providing entertainment on YouTube?

fullyautomatic: THE GREAT NAME:  The affect* FF is trying to achieve is a kind of off-hand casualness. He tries to show that he is not worried about the issue, that it does not occupy his mind, and that he could "take it or leave it" as it were. Obviously, on an internet forum, some effort was made to actually type out the comment itself. And for this reason one should normally be suspicious of those who post while saying (or trying to suggest) that they don't really care. Particularly in the case of "<plonk>" comments, but I digress.

Now the playing down, sarcasm and rhetorical question** all imply some sort of emotional involvement on FF's part. Was a family member flattened by a reckless driver? Was FF once urinated on by a drunk? Certainly, this emotional angle suggest that in actual fact FF really does not know the difference between having a good time and reckless driving. He actually sees the two as synonymous. If we give FF the credit of saying he does not do reckless driving himself, we are forced to conclude, based on his world view inferred from his comment, that he does not have a good time.

He evidently lives a miserable, empty life, devoid of parties and social interaction. His is a live of consuming, bitter envy, expressed in pointless little comments such as the above on forums. A sad man in every way, his impact on the human race is that if a feather, broken and torn and smeared with bird poo.

* yes, affect
** actually no such thing on forums

Except he's using affect as a noun (the first definition in your link) in which case it is correct.
