What the skreeonk is that even supposed to mean? What's this 'bumped' thing you're talking about?
Seriously, there's a lot of internet forum terminology that I am simply not aware of. Please explain to me what 'skreeonk' and 'to bump' mean in forums such as these.
"skreoonk" is the forum's censor for the F-Bomb.
"Bump" means when a member posts in an old thread.
Well, when you put it that way, I guess I used 'skreeonk' it its correct context. As for 'bumping' this thread, it's better late than never to post anything. Why bother creating a new thread if the old thread (of the SAME
topic, mind you) already exists. In my old-fart philosophy, there is no such thing as an old subject. You got your two-cents about it, post it; no use in letting your idea or opinion go to waste because you lost your opportunity to say it in the first place. But, that's just me; I cannot speak for everyone else. Personally, I find it childish; getting after people for commenting on an old thread. Like I said, why bother creating a new thread when the old thread already exists. That's like redundancy. Keep it simple and consolidated.
Besides, if Living Corpse
wants to call me out on "bumping"
a thread, he (or she) should also remember that he/she posted on this same thread not even 8 days before.
Note to Living Corpse,
the whole he/she thing was not meant out of disrespect; I simply have no means of identifying his/her gender...or the possibility that he/she may even be a plural (a collective of people replying under one user name; I...don't...know.
The reason I responded in the first place (before the whole 'Who the skreeonk
bumped this up?' comment) was to put my two-cents on the whole Kong name issue. Reason it took me 8 days to get to my reply was due to real-life issues; job responsibilities, motorcycle title transfer (I can't say any more than that...need to think of OPSEC). And, I find it unfair for calling me out on replying to old threads without considering real-life circumstances. Am I gonna call you out because you decided to post something on a thread that was 4 years old? At first, I would be tempted to...but then, I'd have to consider the possibility that you might have come across issues much more pressing than replying to a forum. It happened to me...so it might have happened to you; who am I to say? It would be unfair of me to weigh that sort of chastisement on you for something so trivial.
Replying to an old thread? Better late than never.
[Update] Actually, I have to correct myself here. The only time it would be inappropriate to respond to this thread would be the (probable) time when Pipeworks comes out with a new Godzilla game (post-Godzilla: Unleashed and exceeding expectations, mind you).
