About Evilplatypus
Anyone else find it a tad creepy that random people come in to look at this? Do they expect me to have answered the meaning of life in here? On a side note: I firmly believe the tilde ~, the most useless punctuation known to the English language, should be the official punctuation of sarcasm. Reasons people vote YDI on posts that can't possibly be YDI: They accidentally hit the wrong button They're going for a badge They're pissed a story of theirs hasn't been posted and are getting "revenge" They think OP is overreacting They think the OP is whining about "first world problems" They like to even the odds on the voting They're playing devil's advocate for a side of the story we're not seeing Etc...
