    Default Shall We Lay The Joke Aside?

    Ok, so everytime a thread pops up asking about somebody's type, somebody's bound to go: "SLUT" or "SEXY" or "IDIOT" etc.

    It's getting a bit old, people, yes?

    That is NOT Ne. That is an insult to all that is Ne. It's like people who add things like "yes, I'm being sarcastic" after things like descriptions of ugly photos that say "this is a great photo". It's people who treat their audience as though they were as slow as they are; people who think that a thing being new to them makes it new to the world. Bit like a teenager advertising how much 'pain' they're in all the time, thinking it'll impress people or inspire sympathy or respect, just because it's a new concept to them now that they've started to experience a bit of life... heh.

    The last three people I saw do this were an ENFP and two INTPs.

    You obviously have never come across people who are incapable of catching sarcasm. I have. That is why I would post something like that. A difference in communication style does not equate to being "slow."

    I don't like that either. People should limit themselves to MBTI types for a response, because that was the intent of the question, and they can add a joke after it, but not instead of it. But it's not like there's anything we can do about it... is there?

    I didn't say that I didn't say it. I said that I didn't say that I said it. I want to make that very clear.

    I guess we could report the post so it could get deleted, but admin would have to be interested in enforcing the rule.
    How frequently does it happen? I've never seen it.

    No, we're not interested in deleting people's posts that don't happen to be funny... (To start with, where do you draw the line?)

    Responsible self-moderation and group feedback (kindly, via PM) really is the key if something bothers you.

    EDIT: In support of the private initiative, I've changed my profile type again.

    Really? I mean, really?

    I suggest rolling your eyes and scrolling past it.
