Quotable Quotes: Outline of a Classic "Site Help" Trainwreck

From a recent spectacular trainwreck:

"This is the pattern of threads I see:

page 1: Please help me, I need to know this thing.

Page 2: This is the answer, this is the answer, this is the answer, Oh, I see someone told you that this is the answer.

Page 3: The way you asked for help offends me. You should learn manners.

Page 4: Yes, they are rude and awful and should have known this before, since it has been posted since the end of time, and there is a spelling error in your OP, and now we get to dump on you for 4 pages.

Page 8: You guys should be nice to the newbie.

Page 9: Be nice to the newbie.

Page 10: I hate people who aren't nice to newbies. Grumpy oldies should be eaten by ninja pigs.

Page 12: Ninja pigs

Page 15: Ninja pigs and chai.
Page 16: Spelling error in OP

Page 27: The price of tea in outer Mongolia has ninja pigs upset and flying low over Dallas.

Page 28: RobWhite says "Please be kind." This thread is locked."

OMG "antb" should get a nomination for best quote ever if we do EtsyBitch Awards.

Laughing said...

LOL! I'm new to the forums at Etsy, and have read only several but OMG!!! They have all read pretty much just like this!

You know, I don't go for the dogpile thing, but really BeaG was asking for it.

She is a master at passive aggressiveness. I wonder if she even comes close to realizing how snooty and arrogant she sounds. What a bitch!!

"I wonder if she even comes close to realizing how snooty and arrogant she sounds."

They never do.

Suki said...

Ugh - she is a trainwreck all on her own.

marie said...

you know...BeaG is a guy. But still, got what he deserved for sure in that thread. Long time coming.

Sgt. Bunny said...

I don't mean to kick on someone but if you set yourself up as a forum schoolmarm with a ruler, and you go around lecturing people, eventually, you get smacked back.

I can't recall a post where BeaG isn't lecturing someone, or chastizing an entire thread.

notonmyperiod said...

If BeaG really is a dude - then that makes the whole menstruation comment that much more offensive, what an ass!

spetsy said...

That thread made me pee a little, I was laughing so hard! I steer clear of BeaG, ...schoolmarm is right!

I recall around- oh 6,8 months ago she was complaining someone was copying her ultra exclusive so hard to make one of a kind

crocheted tubes.

Ha!

palleikodesigns said...

OMG! You hit the nail on the head. That was awesome and so true.

dis little piggy said...

"I can't recall a post where BeaG isn't lecturing someone, or chastizing an entire thread."

Apparently you've missed her perky, happy and friendly self-promotion threads.

(I say "her" because I still can't believe its a man.)

Jen Segrest (verybigjen) said...

I don't buy that BeaG is man either, and I'm not sure about PussDaddy's underwear of choice.

Oh BeaG... if I could virtually smack ppl, s/he would have gotten like 80 from me...

we should take some screenshots of his/her threads and send them to
http://www.passiveaggressivenotes.com/

make everyone laugh as much as we etsyans do! lol

JustAnotherDay said...

omg! simply hilarious. yet, so true.
it would have been funnier if stella locked the thread using the phrase "Please be kind." This thread is locked."

marie said...

this puts the icing on the bitch cake:

http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=5664082

can't believe that shit. he/she can't even take an apology.

the apology stemmed from here:

This is one of the funniest and sadly, accurate summations of a fora train wreck ever...

forum rubbernecker said...

I was waiting for that to show up here yesterday. When it didn't, I secretly feared that she was one of the Etsybitches. I guess I am half right. LOL She is one of the biggest b's on Etsy and I normally try to stay away. Yesterday I couldn't help myself and I did have to kick her a little. Did you know she prides herself on the fact that she never uses smilies? I.am.BeaG,the.robot.I.have.no.emotions.i.am.better.than.you

27 said...

come one now, rubbernecker... let's not be insulting robots!

wigtime said...

I was so happy a few weeks ago when I talked to someone else who BeaG annoyed the hell out of--thought it was just me. Still, that thread was a little bit like Lord of the Flies--or the last scene in Suddenly Last Summer. I really don't want to feel sorry for her...don't make me do it again!

The Kinky One said...

Rubbernecker, after posting two Quotables yesterday I felt like I'd be hogging the front page with a third. After all, I'm not the only Bitch that posts here.

lovelygranny said...

on behalf of everyone who got yelled at... thank you!

dis little piggy said...

"I would like to add that using your brain (even for a few seconds) before making a decision to attack a nice person for no reason other than jealousy would suit any adult business person well."

Even if I pretend that she really IS a "nice person", I still don't get it.

WTH is anyone supposed to be jealous of?

Can anyone clue me in, please?

eclipse said...

antb's post made reading that whole trainwreck (all 89 pages) worth it. That was the most hilarious summary PLUS I found the moopigs store which was new to me and they are adorable!
I need a ninjapig.

(p.s. BeaG is a woman, the store name William's Giftshop is just a store name.)

BeaG has a bad personality, but I can't complain too much ;_;

sick of it all said...

this thread officially answers the question:

"whats this have to do with the price of tea in china?"


You know, I see some people who used to be nice becoming increasingly mean. BeaG used to be a nice person. And I really admire their work. but lately, ew, can you say "rude much?"

The Righteous One said...

Sorry Anonymous @10:12, we need to be able to refer to posters by a name - any name! And we delete all anon comments

But I'd like to point out that you presented us with this:
"omg lol, I nearly spit tea all over my keyboard!"

Yes, it is a funny quote, isn't it!

woolies said...

OMG I know I really need to get more of a life, but I'm sitting here on a Saturday night laughing like a crazy person.
I really need to be banned from the forums - what an incredible drain of time I'll never get back.

BugC said...

Yes, I agree, AntB is awesome. Really Awesome. Auesomely Awesome. And did I mention Awesome?

bryan said...

antb is my hero!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nowhining said...

This thread goes on and on doesn't it?
BeaG is a PIA. No discussion, point blank, kills threads. Chastises, commands, and proclaims royal dominion. With the arrogance, I expected someone who sold something more than keychain fobs. Who knew?

applauding .. Antb!
