I was cringe before it was cool

Well, I haven't read Scrotie's response beyond the first few lines (standard practice when I find his word-strings get too lowered-brow and furrow-faced -- but I usually come back to them later when I'm feeling receptive to that particular mode) so you're probably right. If I'm not entertained, there's no point -- but apparently what I do for entertainment here entertains some others, so that's a win. ^_^

Just came back to respond to a friend in my main thread (which is not so much entertaining as energising, although I miss feeling okay putting my energy towards GGG and not against them) and say 'hi!'.

Cringe, cool? They're just two sides of the same coin collection. If you're lucky you figure out a good way to flip it...something any old MTG tragic knows all-too-well.

Do not mistake me for a troll. I am a bridge. Walk all over me but don't take the passages I grant for granted. You might find yourself floundering without them.

We are born seriously flawed, utterly dependent creatures. If there is one thing I am fundamentally and unabashedly certain of, it is that it is good to admire maturity and bad to worship childishness.

I was going to sincerely compliment teh original post, I share some of the same jaded sentiment that seems to be coming from it

Imagine actually posting this in a thread about the banality of crypto-narcissism. Yes, yes, you are simultaneously a self-depreciating cringe normie and an e-celeb whose mere attention should be considered a recognition of achievement. Whatever you say, champ. We get it already.

That response is so over the top...


I understand you are trying to be so insufferably self-aware in this post as a means to detract from the fact that you unironically called someone on the path of exile official forums a "cringe normie," but the level at which you are self-aware in a post like this makes sentences liek this

What we have here is a bit of a disagreement. I think it's fair to say that, in the opening post of this thread, I'm calling myself a cringe normie. Or at least a bit more vulnerable to normalcy than I would have liked to believe. So it wasn't my reply that first questioned (limiting the timeline to this thread) whether a denizen of the Path of Exile forums can be a normie.

That said, I didn't really go where I wanted to go with such doubts. The idea was to question the notion that having a niche weird hobby is still weird, not to use it as a cudgel. So when you say

well, that's fair enough.

Even with a understanding that I should be the change I want to be in the world, it's doesn't make being that change fun. More importantly, it doesn't make it feel natural. It has yet that surreal feel of the behavior which has not yet become habit — and considering that it's been some time since this thread began, that means I've been doing a shit job.

And I might be doing one now, too, because real life is calling so I'm not reading this over before submitting.

I just thinjk the words "cringe normie" are lame out of principle
once saw an incredible hot take on twitter once about the word "cringe" tho, wish I could find it again

tbh I have been able to make somewhat of a "change" myself at purposefully tackling the serious problem of online irony by trying to remain sincere, especially in communities that align w/ my hobbies. any level of invested interest, whether it's sincere or initially performative, will still breed more sincerity imo.
Never heard of the cringe phenomenon before. You youngsters have a strange language.

Thank you for explaining it to me. I mean I don't really understand better but I at least feel better that I have company.
Over 430 threads discussing labyrinth problems with over 1040 posters in support (thread # 1702621) Thank you all! GGG will apparently eventually implement a different method for ascension. Retired!
