I didn't technically vote no, but let's go ahead and say I did, just to keep the tally up.

Actually, he got FOUR No votes: Judge, Lia, Khai, and Sepoy back on page 1.

This might be a record for fastest rejection, ever. And yeah, we do have a 48-hour rule against voting, but... c'mon. There was NO way I was going to let us have a guy named "Poo Dolphin" in The U. That name itself fails of any basic standard of classiness.
What? I'm not allowed to try and be a nice guy once in a while? :p

That's where I got ya - I just quoted the fact that you used the word "no."

I'm like one of those Wall Street ad wizards from Mads Men, totes.

Updating thread with accurate vote count ... we're up to 8 official "no" with several clearly expressing a preference but not stating it. I think we can claim victory over the process.

Completely misjudged what you people are all about, I'm not changing anything in my application because it is what it is. Filled it out honestly, and it took some time to write all that out. I'm not gonna fight the decision because my whole view on your guild/little circle jerk clan changed. You're all a bunch of pussies, easily offended, and probably a bunch of liberal yappies that are pro gun control. As far as one of my favorite use of words, "douchefaggots" I use it in no way near insulting homosexuals, as a bisexual myself I'd guess you can say it's ironic. The whole vibe of narcissism that one would get from the recruitment post on the A52 forums is extremely misleading. These are games people. Not life effecting in anyway, unless you consider yourself the "SUPER-LEET GAEMERZ" Games are for entertainment, which is what I, personally am all about. I like to have fun and make fun. Oh and another thing, having a stoned or drunk logo is another misleading aspect. So I'd just like to say, go fuck yourselves, and enjoy crying to each other and going back to sucking on your mothers' tits because some douchefaggot disgusted you when you asked what he thought was the funniest thing that ever happened to him.

edit: grammar nazi (not in anyway insulting towards the Jews if you feel that way)

The process works, guys!

Or more appropriately: An example on being the fastest No-Vote in Guild History.

Which, that in-and-of itself would tell you how socially inept he "may" be. It's quite astonishing, really.

I was keeping an eye onthis hoping it was a joke. Giving poo the benefit of doubt, maybe we were being a lil harsh. But his response very well shut that down and I also was thinking this was a sticky-worthy especially after he responded. With no tact or regret he just went with his feelings. This is not a boys club there are very cool, intelligent women here who don't need those kind of stories or attitudes where they feel safe and comfortable.

His weird obsession with juvenile material (like shit), and using terms like "douchefaggot" (which, honestly, just isn't that funny) put me in mind of EXACTLY the type of gamer we founded this community to get away from. This guy literally embodies the gamer stereotype that made me so unwilling to game socially for years. His videos are childish and uninteresting, his "shocking" language is really more embarrassing for him than offensive to me, and his "dudebro" attitude and quasi-awkward over-the-top effort to come on strong in his app just reeks of the kind of person who would make me shove icepicks into my ears after ten seconds of being with them in Mumble.

When he was rejected his response was equally telling. Given the number of active and former military The U has, the assumption that we're a bunch of pro-gun-control liberal yappies* is laughable. Given that one of our female players told us a story in her app of beating the hell out of a guy with a cane, it's trite to think that we're just a bunch of gutless pussies. And given that - apparently unlike this applicant - we can actually hold our liquor when we drink, I think it's more his failing for not understanding that we reference alcohol not because it defines us, but because so many of us just happen to enjoy it.

This applicant's circle of failure is complete. He did not understand us when he applied, his app reads like a ten year-old's wish-fulfillment fantasy, and his response to our rejection was tantamount to an internet tantrum; all it needed was linked pictures of dicks to make it perfect.

Sad thing is, WAY way down in the subtext of his posts I think there might have been a pretty cool guy there. It was just so buried until an avalanche of stupidity that it never got the chance to see the light of day.

When the hilarity of this app dies down, it shall earn a sticky in our hall of shame.

That's what I was waiting for! I even told my Fiance' a few minutes ago:

"All we need to do is wait for Dao and one of his 3 or 4 paragraph ownage letters he never fails to deliver!"

You sir, are my thesaurus (sp?) of educated insults!

I've read a few gems of written literature which transcend the possibilities of "stereotype" in my time (being a bit of a forum-reader), but honestly, I'd be hard-pressed to remember one so classically cliche.

I was actually trying to be polite; when I insult people, I do it with way more snide venom. :)

Anyway, I think we've given the hoi polloi enough bread and circuses for today. The app wasn't good, the dude threw a weak left hook on his way out, and the community's certainty in his fit for The U (or lack thereof) has been made clear in spades. I'm going to lock and sticky this, and let it serve as a reminder to future applicants. Poo's no Snipertron (or Alverdine), but he's a good object lesson all the same.


[Edit]: For those officers who keep missing it: This thread is locked. Do not post in it.
