Serious question. Where has this ever happened? Like, I'm genuinely curious because I've never seen anyone pick on your or berate you just because of a lack of rank or award. I've seen things like this happen in the past, but not with you. Hell, I rarely even see people criticize your threads, which are usually pretty decent. You've made this claim that you are constantly picked on or ignored because you don't have a rank... yet I've never seen this happen. The majority of active members on this site aren't ranked anyway. Even if it were the case, it doesn't matter. I find that the irony of this is that by constantly reiterating that you don't have a rank and saying only people with ranks are popular/liked/whatever ad naseum, it turns the ranks into a far bigger deal than they actually are. I just don't get it.Not sure if you're trolling or not. If you are, then yes, I am gonna retire from making threads altogether. That way I won't have to deal with the ones who love to pick on me for my threads. Seems like ever since last month, I've been treated like crap from people who claim they're superior than me all because they have awards & ranks. I'm ZD's butt monkey, and there's nothing that'll change this.
