How about a gloat/celebration forum?

I was criticized for supposedly doing a bit of gloating in the thread below. I don't agree that it was gloating. It made me realize that if someone wanted to gloat, it really doesn't fit anywhere on this forum.

Did you predict Hillary Clinton's exoneration correctly? (Prove it!)

If there's a rant forum, why not have a gloat/celebration forum? I think it would be a lot of fun. People deserve the right to brag or celebrate occasionally.

Also, since ranting is generally considered negative, a gloat forum would balance things out energetically.

Great idea, we could call it the 'Act Like a Douche' forum.

I wonder what the requirement for FSME of that forum would be?

What definition of "douche" would you be using?

I don't care about my reputation here as this is an anonymous account. It makes absolutely no difference to me what the majority thinks of this persona. Why would anyone would care about that is beyond me.

It would be like the humor forum, basically, right?

The ability to be a raging jerkoff.

The same one you would use to describe the behavior of people who feel the need to gloat after an online (or real life) conversation.

Seers don't gloat.

Can you quote a dictionary definition of "douche" that meets your stated parameters please?

You seem to me to be very serious all the time but some people come here mainly to have fun. And, many people find gloating to be fun. Why do you have to be judgmental about how people enjoy themselves if they're not hurting anyone else?

Personally, I wouldn't start threads in a gloat forum. But, I would like to read it. It's inspirational to me.

Then why the need to gloat, never mind setting up a whole bloody forum for it?

No. You know exactly what I mean.

Riiiiiight.

You would probably like this thing they created called Facebook. It has much douchebaggery.

I feel like there's no place for gloating on any extant forum.

What's my motive for starting this thread? I want to read a gloat forum.

I wouldn't make threads in a gloat forum because I don't brag or gloat.

How about if it was called "Celebration Forum." Perhaps the problem here is with the word "gloat"?

It would just be another forum for fun to me. Is the problem that some people look at gloating as a sin or something like that?

It would brighten up my day to read a celebration/gloat forum. I'm tired of reading 90% bad news. I want to read good news. That's my motive.

Whatever floats your boat. I tend to think most of the people here are not interested in a forum where people act like assholes.

After careful deliberation I vote NO for a 'Gloat-Like-A-Douche' Forum.
If someone is so insecure that they need to celebrate when they actually get something right...they can do the 'Happy Dance' with their pet ferrets...like the rest of us here.

I would LOVE to have a forum...where Xenophobes from around the world can gather together and find commonality and camaraderie through their mutual dislike of people from other countries.

Aaaaaaannnnnnd...you could all just bog off to Reddit? How be dat for a plan?

Don't you think y'all gloat enough as it is when you think you've been proven right?



Don't think it would work though: You'd be making a thread about something that's already posted on the boards.
