In less than 72 hour during this week, Internet Superheroes had earned the following:

  • 10+ threads on the Alliance Announcements sub-forum. [including a thread that went over 30 pages]
  • 3 threads on the World Affairs sub-forum
  • 2 threads on the OWF
  • 40+ members on average in #is around-the-clock [Our normal average is 10-20, btw]
  • The release of a very successful "I hate Internet Superheroes" t-shirt
  • The release of a new meme to the CN community: "____ is _____, sig if you're down"

Are we really that important? You have nothing better to do than flaunt your moral supremacy to a small alliance on the smallest sphere in the game? Let me tell you something: When we all led TCB, we were nothing. Nobody cared. We played a serious, caring, "normal" style and never had any benefit. In the 2+ years that King Xander, CzarNick, Extraduty, Sakura, and myself [among others] held high positions in TCB, we never got half of the attention that was given to Internet Superheroes this week.

Honestly, if I was anything more than a trolling attention whore I wouldn't give a damn about Internet Superheroes. I don't see why you all have to. We revel in the fact that hate garners attention. Puke earns publicity. It's not a joke to us, IS really is immoral. We sit and laugh in our IRC channels while everyone flips out over our actions. The joke isn't on pink, it's on you.

Well, that's hardly an excuse. That just means that opportunities will continue to arise and IS will continue to capitalize on such opportunities with the sole goal of earning as much attention as possible.

I can't see Fark ever becoming hated like that, they are too powerful.

Who cares? People were bored. What you did was dumb and now the past is the past. All you have to do now is wait for someone else to screw up. :P

I was not lobbying that point, for infact I do not believe "what we did was dumb" and I did not beg the cyberverse for forgiveness.

I was merely pointing out the ridiculous tendency of nations to freak out and cover things way too much.

No one "freaked out" over your forum trolling, more like annoyed responses to the usually inane comments you guys generally leave behind. Some of you guys are okay though.

However there were heated responses over the attack on CG, which was totally appropriate given the nature of the situation.

If you want really bad PR, you guys were really successful. Grats, I guess.

Uh Tron, the sig meme is ancient. Well, older than me, anyway, but I guess that's not saying much. :P Anyway, I think it started with "Nukes are immoral, sig this if you're down." But I digress.

Anyway, I can't say I harbor any hate for the IS or pink, nor for most alliances in general. It's all a game, it's all a bit of roleplay, let's have fun with it, that's what I say. I can respect people like you and Xander, even if IC we fall on different sides of the political coin. And this IS drama was the greatest source of entertainment I've had in a while, so I can honestly say thanks to IS for bringing the goods. ;) You guys know how to kick back and have fun in your own way, so what if it's different from the CN norm? CN needs a little un-normalness here and there to keep things going.

And I seriosuly need to find out who's selling those T-shirts. :P
