Even if someone is offensive, we don't have to show that we have taken offense especially if this person's goal was to offend. Why would we want to let him/her win like that, amirite?
@fuzala I was thinking of how trolls throw out some really out there things to get a rise out of people if we show offense...

I've found that if you react to a troll at all they think that they've trolled you, even if your reaction is to logically and calmly point out why they're wrong.

It's amazing to see how much Amirite has changed in the past year, amirite?
Childhood games teach mediocrity. Simon Says teaches us to blindly follow directions; Duck Duck Goose lets us know that life is a popularity contest; Hide and Seek says that being quiet is the only way to survive; Tag provides this insight: one minute you are “it” and the next you are irrelevant; Dodgeball shows us how to take advantage of people weaker than us because our self-esteem will go up when we deflate others. Kids today deserve a new set of learnings and new rules for life. Ami...

You don't even want to know what four square taught kids...

This site is amazing because it gives people a way to express their opinions worry free. So, it kind of ruins it when people post rude or mean comments for no reason. If you don't have an intelligent reply to a comment, shut up or go to a different site.

Okay I'm going to lay things down here, not as a moderator, not as staff, but as a long time member of this site.

Things have changed. Fact.
Does that mean the site has to be worse off because of it? Hell no.

People are complaining that they don't get any quality posts anymore, they point to the new staff, they point to the new changes. Let me tell you this: There are less quality posts because people are posting less quality posts. Why is this? You might ask. I like to think that it's because the members who would normally be posting funny/original/thought provoking things are instead spending their time posting complaints. You don't have to look very far, just open amirite and look at the POTD, I can guarantee that no matter what it is someone will have complained about it.
The POTD is a year or two old? People complain that the mods are trying to make amirite look good by putting up old popular things.
POTD is too new? Complaints that a POTD should have proven itself.
POTD is a joke? Complaints that you can't vote yes or no on it.
POTD is too serious? People complain that they used to be funny and witty.

Stop seeing the bad and start making the good. It is possible.

Sometimes, you suffer from a pang of loneliness for no apparent reason, amirite?

I'm gonna take a shot in the dark here and say that it's because you're lonely.

How many homepage votes do you personally think a post needs to get to home page?
@J_A_C_K Seriously though. And while you're at it, this bright blue wallpaper is really rubbing me the wrong way. Think you...

Oddly enough I actually can, under "Settings" go to the "Theme" category and change your background.

This picture is not worth a thousand words.
@Len This picture speaks to the child inside of all of us, just by seeing the poorly drawn grass and sun it gives us a...

These children love the sun so much that they plague all drawings with this bright yellow blotch, ignoring the fact that without sunscreen it will be the cause of their skin cancer later in life.
Much like the coming of age tale, an adolecent's treatement towards the sun displays their naivity and innocence turning into hatred and untrustfulness against this solar body which abodes in the sky. When they are young they trust the sun, staring at it for long hours, convincing themselves that it will blink first in this friendly staring contest between close friends. As they age however they realise that their slow descent into blindness is not a random act of God, but is in fact their closest friend, turning on them in their hour of need.
Why sun!? Why did you take my sight from me?!

...I will have my vengeance. In this life, or the next...

cough got a bit carried away there, 240 between the two of us there Len.

How many homepage votes do you personally think a post needs to get to home page?
@J_A_C_K "The more home page votes a post have, the quicker a moderator will see it!" This is way too enthusiastic.

I'll inform the moderating team that their enthusiasm is getting out of hand, they will be dealt with severely.

Lies in the past don't change your honesty in the present.

This picture is not worth a thousand words.
@1200>1000. You could fit it.

Haha, only if they were 1200 words, unfortunately they are characters. I'd have to make the 1000 words only one letter each.

How many homepage votes do you personally think a post needs to get to home page?

Homepage votes won't necessarily get the post directly to the homepage. However, the more homepage votes a post has the more likely that a moderator will see it. This gives the post a better chance of making it to the homepage.

Directly from the "About Amirite" Page: "The more home page votes a post have, the quicker a moderator will see it!"

This picture is not worth a thousand words.
@Altoid_Freak_250 I challenge someone to try to write 1000 words about this picture. I would do it myself, but I'm way too lazy.

I actually tried giving it a shot until I realised that we only have 1200 characters in these dang comment boxes...

People who complain about having such and such degree yet can not find any work (in their field of expertise or not) are imbeciles. When people like this complain to me I turn a blind eye and try to keep my mouth shut but wow there are a lot of people to ignore.

Perhaps I'm missing something, could you explain to me how people who spend many years advancing their education are imbeciles?

If a person runs a stop sign, but no one is around to see it, did he really break the law?

Of course he did, people steal when nobody is around and they still broke the law. Law is suppose to guide your action with or without the presence of others.

It seems that most of the current posts on the home page aren't funny or original. 23 favorites (at the moment) on the POTD? Clearly it's not that great of a post. The Moderators should re-evaluate what qualifies as a "good" post and what needs to stay away from the Home page

Just a reminder that you do in fact have a suggest for homepage AND a suggest for POTD button. If you find a post you think deserves to be homepaged just go ahead and suggest it, that would be the first step to seeing more posts you like on the homepage.
