Dropping the SSG? And other acronyms, confusing terms.

#1

Post by THEBLACKMOONHOWL » Tue May 17, 2016 5:09 am

I've been on the Zandronum forums for a long time before I registered, but I've never really understood many terms of what you forum regulars say.

For example, in drama thread I see people saying "dropping the ssg" every now and then. I can only interpret that it means to do something that is generally frowned apon, but I have no idea if that's true. Literally dropping an SSG is highly unfavorable in Doom which led me to that conclusion...

Anyways, do any of you guys know of any other terminology that could potentially be perplexing to an outside perspective?

CTF stands for "cuddle the furry" right?

No, the acronym 'CTF' refers to "cutting the flesh" as a way to symbolize displeasure and disgust.

It's a sad state of affairs you and your friend aren't permanently banned from the game yet.

Sorry for not elaborating, I meant browsing as a guest.

You browsed the forum so much you don't know anything. Maybe you should go back to browsing some more. I prefer you browse forever.

I'll definitely keep that in mind. Also, I do not know of whoever "Galactusfriend" is. If they have created the same forum topic as I have, then it must've been a coincidence. Mods are free to remove this topic if they so wish if it calls for it.

Yeah let's tell new users that they should be banned and to never post again, great idea.

It begs the question, is THEBLACKMOONHOWL actually a "galactusfriend"? If he is I see where Mobius is coming from, but if he's just a new member then yeah, that's not a very nice greeting.

And better yet, who are these people....? You keep saying A3 gang when it was literally just mobius, and you wonder why the rest of us wake up to shut your paranoid ass assumptions down, because quite frankly it was funny about several months ago, not anymore.

Yes because 1 person posting by himself (Mobius) is actually the entire clan posting.

Another amazing display of intellect from you as usual.

He said he has been browsing forever to only join just to talk about the Galactus thing and drama. It's literally not subtle. You're retarded

Oh fuck Mobius, you done triggered him now. "Retard" is Leonard's trigger word! Prepare for topics about how the you are a despicable person and how the mods aren't doing their job keeping you off the forums.
Good. I welcome it.

To be honest, I actually joined to help other people out with server-hosting but I can see where you would mistake me for someone else. I understand that. I created this thread for generally confusing things that an outside (such as I) would not understand. I don't partake in drama much but curiosity got the better of me, and this thread happened.

Whatever drama is going on the Zandronum forums is none of my concern. I legitimately only want to know what "dropping the ssg" means.

Why is it the first question to be brought up if you know it involves drama and it doesn't concern you? Am I being trolled?
