No, I know it was a joke - it was quite obviously sarcastic and not serious. However, virtually every "console peasant" topic is a joke (even if some people I'm sure have started taking it seriously). The problem that it's becoming too much, people are trying too hard, and it's to the point where it's no longer funny. The sheer saturation means that even satirical posts mocking all of the actual topics, by the simple fact they include the same sort of things even if it's to a more ridiculous extreme, simply add to the clutter and make it even more annoying. And thereby... pathetic.
I'll be leaving this board very soon. Hopefully I can go somewhere where these words are not used.
