    Over the last few weeks several profiles have been highlighted in threads dedicated to that person. None of these threads were meant to be taken seriously or to inspire. Yet somehow they have caused some members to do more than just scratch their heads in confusion.

    Some members feel as if their territory has been violated while others simply ignore emerging personalities. I've only been posting to the RJ forums for about 2 months maybe? Every day I become more and more aware of this crew of RJ profiles in the forums. The members of this crew have been consistently posting in the RJ forums for long enough that they can use the phrase "The good old days" in ref to the forums. For the purposes of this thread I will refer to them as "The Plastics."

    At some point a wave of narcissistic newbs with brutally satyrical posts emerged. For the purposes of this thread I will refer to them as "The EMOs." The EMOs aren't part of a formal social network the way The Plastics are. However The EMOs are easily identified. Just follow the trail of pissed off Plastics they leave behind.

    There are also "The Snipers." The difference between The Snipers and The EMOs is The EMOs post almost daily while you will only hear from The Snipers maybe once or twice a week at most.

    Less loved by all are "The Herps." You try to ignore the fact that they are there but some times you have to scowl at them and say, "WTF is that!" The Herps tend to be pro Hamas, practitioners of Judo/ Tae Kwon Do and they love Sears portraits. Some suspect The Herps are spawned by careless mothers who dropped their gay infant sons on the floor. The impact at such an early gay age causes The Herp to continuously post pointless and ignorant comments later on in life.

    For the purposes of this thread the last group I'll talk about is "The Mercs." They have been posting to the forums for as long as The Plastics but don't necessarily identify with any group. Their flames burn hotter than those of The Plastics but they are not as reckless as the EMOs. You will recognize them by their red/ black striped tube socks, Cylon references, uneven eyes and Mexican heritage.

    The Plastic network is deeply rooted in RJ and comprises highly dedicated and community oriented nodes. The upstart EMOs are mostly unaware of just how extensive the Plastic network is and for the most part they don't care. The radical obnoxious behavior of The EMOs is terribly unacceptable in the eyes of The Plastics. The Mercs don't mind The EMOs because The Mercs are secretly bored of the conservative Plastics.

    The EMOs are so blinded by their flame lust that they can't differentiate between The Plastics and The Herps. The Plastics seek to assimilate the EMOs or silence their posts with bitter destain. The rebellious EMOs have no reservations about flaming anybody who gets in their way. They have no sense of community in RJ and therefore see no point in befriending The Plastics.

    The Herps who are essentially the lepers of RJ try to take down the EMOs with dimwitted insults. Herps are no match for the superior intellect of the more handsome EMOs. Herps are typically slaughtered by the EMOs and this often stimulates sympathy for The Herps among The Plastics. However, The Plastics are somewhat elitist and will only defend The Herps but will never accept them. The Snipers may come to the aid of The Herps but their help is typically short lived and generally unreliable.

    In order to make The EMOs conform to Plastic expectations; Plastic doctrine preaches start with the stick rather than the carrot. If The EMOs reject the carrot and they typically do the Plastics have been known to report the EMOs to the RJ administrators. This can result in the EMO being banned from RJ. The EMOs view reporting as cowardly and recklessly violate the Forum Rules just to taunt The Plastics. The Plastics have been the dominant voice in the forums and refuse to make room for a bunch of egotistical and vain rim rangers.

    Just like The Matrix this has all happened before and it will all happen again. The only way to break the cycle is to destroy The Matrix. So say we all.icon_rolleyes.gif

    LOL. Okay that made me laugh and had me twitching uncomfortably at which category I belonged. icon_lol.gif

    Just a note, my thread was a birthday thread, which is quite common in RJ and something I didn't ask for nor particularly wanted. icon_razz.gif I'm still planning on sending a letter bomb to matt45710 for that. icon_evil.gif If you read more of my posts, my usual reactions to genuine praise is to immediately hide beneath the table and pretend nothing happened and my abysmal self-image is still intact and the world still revolves around the Sun.

    I have only been a member of RJ for exactly one year (give or take a few days, weird, come to think of it), and am relatively new in comparison to the real oldtimers. Still given that that's a good 10 months more than you, I guess it would constitute me as being one of the Plastics. icon_surprised.gif There have been several accusations of elitism in the past, and nothing annoys me more than that. Being, what, the second most prolific poster, and with a buddylist rapidly expanding to populate a small island nation, I feel as if I immediately become one of the primary targets of such an accusation. I do not feel compelled to defend a friend here if I do not agree with his ideas, I only speak up when I really want to. I try to respond to the post rather than the person, and try to be at least civil even with people I've had apocalyptic flamewars with in the past. I respond both to old-timers and newbs. Have even tried my hand at defusing impending flamewars every once in a while with varying results... So no, there is no elitism beyond the normal friendship that naturally develops over time together here. It does seem lately, as I've mentioned elsewhere, that I have finally managed to develop the skill of ignoring certain threads or posts which would have probably driven me to rabid flaming in the past. OMG, maha-nirvana! icon_lol.gif

    I have to admit lately I get a bit uncomfortable when the reminiscing threads start surfacing again, because other than a change in some profiles it's really nothing surprising past the normal evolution of forum communities. I do wish everybody would stop trying to analyze RJ politics and just post. The unnecessary highly personal flamewars aren't helping either. An obnoxious joke is good every once in a while but not when it targets someone out of pure malice, regardless of the actual issue being discussed on the thread. Remember we are a community of men, and if there's one thing men have in abundance, it's ego. A personal insult is not something easily overlooked.

    But when the day ends, this is still just a fitness and networking site I read and post to when I feel like slacking from my tedious work of making shapes on the computer screen (like now). The people I like and dislike here are still thousands of miles away from me who I can quickly dismiss with a click on the little x button on the upper right corner. Keep things in perspective. There is no Matrix. You are all figments of my imagination, only I exist. icon_twisted.gif Chill out.

    At the risk of getting flamed:

    This analysis is way too byzantine. This is a social/fitness website, not the court of the Borgias. Some are becoming way too invested in what should be basically a pastime.

    First of all don't compare my writing to some long forgotten empire. It's shallow and makes me feel bloated. If you want to be pompous just skip the formalities and unlock your privates for me. I did post this in the General Discussion area of the forums so really I can talk about midgets in Tijuana donkey shows if I wanted. BTW Vern Troyer if you're out there call me. I want to worship your feeticon_twisted.gif. DefTexan, RJ is a pastime for me! You think anybody would pay me to write the things I write in here? If you think what I wrote requires any kind of talent, dedication, or effort you are severely overestimatinsg what I am capable of when bored to tearsicon_cry.gif

    At least it passed. I ate a chocolate squirrel 4 days ago and I'm still burping what smells like after shave and taco meat.

    Hey, I'm made out of sugar and I pee rainbows and poop butterflies. By the way, the milkweed toxin in the Monarch Butterflies irritates my boom boom when I pass them.icon_biggrin.gif

    I still eat them whole! I must have a kevlar lined colon or something because it takes considerably more than a few sunflower seeds to tear up the old fart box.

    You ever put iceyhot on your anoos before spin class or before riding a bike? I haven't done it yet but I did shit some spicy food just before riding a bike for cardio. icon_eek.gif it's an interesting sensation to have the tingling of jalapenos in your brown eye for 30 min.

    No, but if you want tingling, try having someone suck on an Altoid while they lick your ass. I recommend it over the jalapeno butt-geyser. And the spin class for that matter.

    Hrmmm I'm going to have to pick up some altoids. I bet it feels real good on the balls and meat stick... I'm going to have to go on CL and find an oral sub.
