I liked the posts where he bumped like 6 straight before/during/after parties instead of posting them in a single post.
I admit that I have entered in here 20+ times, like I do almost all threads.
I'm excited for the 2015 thread
There are a couple of people I know personally who will vouch for you (Lingo, Robin), but there are others who are a bit more annoyed with the content you post to the point where they will flip out on you frequently. Just stop responding man. Ignore it. When someone mocks you for posting a pic of you and a celebrity, don't follow it up by posting another. It just seems like you are being purposefully annoying. If you aren't doing it intentionally, perhaps you should be a bit more aware of your audience on these boards.
If you are all having fun trolling him that's one thing, be funny get your kicks etc. but it's absolutely retarded for you all to be questioning why he's bumping a thread he created to talk about a cruise he attended. He had a great fucking time and he simply wants to express it somewhere. Why are so many of you compelled to bitch and moan when he's kept it all to a thread none of you fucking care about?
No, I am saying Xanman is as complicit in this as the trolls, if not more so because of the super spammy way that he's going about it. I don't take it as a good faith effort to share the plur or whatever, and see it more as attention seeking behavior.
Seems like an abused child who will take any kind of attention they can get, good and bad, just for the simple act of the interaction.
Also see some supre like qualities. It's more about being able to say you were there than it is about having a good time. With the pictures to prove it.

Also, if "the board" was trolling Xanman, others would be in here posting shit about Holy Ship, starting new threads, and generally bating him into discussions. 90% or more of what is in here is purely reactive to Xanman.
Creep- You are right about the multiple posts about the schedule, it was coming out over time (days) and I did it in multiple posts because people were commenting and I figured they wouldn't be seen if I kept them in one post. I agree that it would have been better that way.
Guy- I agree with you. I was way more in your face about it at the beginning of 2013, especially in the rumors thread. I'm sure you have noticed a VAST decline in that type of activity from me.
Fax- *high five* but calm it down with that hashtag before people start flaming you too ;-).
Mirror- Sorry for calling you a lame ass earlier. You are genuinely one of my favorite posters on the board.
I mean, why have a discussion if you can just call everyone you disagree or don't like a troll. That's pretty pathetic. This isn't spam and what you consider stupid is subjective. You're making terrible fucking arguments right now. Xanman isn't making 7000 threads for holy ship to shove it in everyones face. He made one. He posts in it.
In fact, I seem to remember being barked at back in the day for making threads about news stories all the time. Someone then suggested one thread for all my news articles. Now one thread pertaining to one specific subject is apparently trolling?
Xanman didn't create this thread to start arguments with people. People who didn't like this thread and/or Xanman came into it to TROLL and start arguments with Xanman. That's pretty clear.
Dude, just so know, I don't have it in for you in any particular way. But the part I'm still not understanding is who the intended audience is for some piece of minutia like "the recently released official videos from Rony's Photobooth and Fool's Gold Records," especially when you know exactly the type of reaction you're going to get . . .
Faxman, for someone who's not concern trolling, you seem to have very strong opinions about an otherwise deeply trivial and inane fight.
I mean, it's not quite mooroko complaining about people giving cr**** a hard time, but it's close.
I was On the ship and his excitement is totally legit it was the best party of all time
Wrong, I haven't been in here giving Xanman a hard time. I made one joke early in the thread about a sinking ship, and then made a couple of other posts joking about Tiesto and Parrotheads, neither of which was aimed at the Xanman. My own feelings about Xanman are largely ambivalent; I think the guy is partially misunderstood, but also largely responsible for much of his own misfortune and reputation around here. To the extent I said something today, it was to call out Xanman's own culpability for a portion of the raging grease fire that seems to follow him, not to stifle discussion or make him feel like he can't talk about how much fun he had or whatever.
Wah wah, people are giving the guy who ruins every fucking thread he infiltrates with useless photos and dumb trivia a little bit of a hard time. Faxy, this guy doesn't deserve you defending him.

I enjoy this thread for all of the above. Post more videos Xanman. The amount of booty shaking for a white people festival is unparalleled.
How do you guys put up with this ship every day?
I mean, holy ship, get over it.
Brb, gotta take a ship.
This thread title should be changed to "ship happens".
