    I would have thought Harlequinn Fetus would have been more psychologically scarring for our self-professed profession of the weak :bigass:

    We seem to have gained a popcorn rep smiley. Introducing that without any kind of entertaining debate is kind of ironic, don't you think?

    Is the popcorn one for saying something along the lines of "this is going to be entertaining," or is it a safeword?

    In order to make each function more readily intelligible to our many newcomers, I propose changing the name of the popcorn rep category to safeword. Also, I submit the welcoming message should be shortened to

    "Please note popcorn reputation carries the category label safeword."

    Not my fault. I have to assume you're game unless and until you say 'popcorn'.

    Someone added the "popcorn" rep and didn't bother to capitalize the first letter on mouse hover? We look like a third rate ezBoard.

    It's not capitalized for a reason.

    Update: "dumb" has been removed, since it is redundant with facepalm, and because I wanted to add one that I never considered until recently, though with 2016 making its use a logical choice:

    Sad. :(

    I would've rather gotten rid of Fantasy World, but I can see your point.

    I still say that TSDR (Too Stupid, Didn't Read) is better. (You know, what with gtardo's posts about the election and all.)

    I realize some people preferred to use "dumb" over "facepalm," but I don't care. Nah, I'm kidding, I do understand. I don't care, but I understand. ;)

    I contemplated getting rid of fantasy world instead, but "dumb" and "facepalm" really were redundant. Unless people want "dumb" instead of "facepalm," that would be fine, too.

    Eh, having TL;DR and TS;DR are essentially the same thing when used on Wordforge. Both are dismissive, and both indicate to the other poster that you truly do not give a damn.

    Dumb indicated that the post was just dumb/stupid. Facepalm is directed more to the person, being more of a "I can't believe you really said that".

    True, but I consider both having the same basic sentiment of "What the Fuck?"

    I'd rather have dumb. I use face palm as,"you've got to be shitting me" and dumb speaks for itself.
