Valuing star ratings of posters on a message board. This is one of the many reasons you are a loser.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
The fact that you run to tanfan's defense at every turn is one of the main reasons you are on weird MFer.
The fact that my post completely flies over your head is one of the many reasons you are a complete dumbass. Tanfan lives and dies with the star system, whether it be fball rankings or message board rankings. Can't go a day without bitching about downvotes. He's the only poster that I know of that actually started a thread begging for upvotes. My post is deliberately ironic. Can't believe you needed that explained to you. I truly hope you didn't attend my Alma mater.
Like I told tanfan: Shut the fuck up, jackass.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
Were you in a hurry because you heard that little boys' pants were half-off?
How soon before one of these stores gets slammed with a massive lawsuit for not providing a safe environment on their property?
Walmart Black Friday Fighting Over Phones During 2012, American People Act Like Animals
The traditional Thanksgiving shopping frenzy ate into the day itself this year with stores throwing open their doors on Thursday evening.
Black Friday - a key date in the two-month holiday season retail splurge - is the chance for stores across the US to turn a profit for the whole year.
Americans have grown more comfortable shopping online, putting pressure on traditional retailers who can make up to 40% of their annual revenue in November and December.
In what has been dubbed "Gray Thursday", Target opened its doors at 9pm, three hours earlier than last year. Sears, which did not open on Thanksgiving last year, opened at 8pm.
When Macy's opened its doors in New York at midnight, 11,000 shoppers showed up.
For some the lure of the potential bargains was enough to make them miss out on Thanksgiving dinner altogether.
Michael Prothero, 19, and his friend Kenny Fullenlove, 20 started camping out on Monday night outside a Best Buy store in Ohio, which was scheduled to open at midnight.
"Better safe than sorry," Mr Prothero said.
However not everyone was happy with the extended Thanksgiving hours.
"It shows that the companies are not valuing their workers. They're looking to their workers to squeeze out more profits," complained Carrie Gleason, director of the union-backed pressure group Retail Action Project.
Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer which owns Asda in the UK, has been one of the biggest targets of protests against holiday hours.
Many of the its stores open 24 hours, but the company was offering early bird specials, once were reserved for Black Friday, at 8pm on Thanksgiving instead.
OUR Walmart, which includes disgruntled former and current workers, planned demonstrations and walkouts at hundreds of stores on Black Friday.
But retailers say they are giving shoppers what they want.
Kathee Tesija from Target said its 9pm opening struck "a perfect balance" for its customers.

Those folks don't want a safe environment; the struggle is the point of the thing. That mini-riot is all the living most of these folks are going to get for the next year. They're like 14 year old emo hags who cut themselves to feel alive.
Someone, or more than one person, will be trampled or suffocated to death one of these years. Insanity.
He was being sarcastic, and was making fun of the internet dorks like yourself who actually think a message board rating matters in life. You fell for it hook, line, and sinker.
tanfan blowers sicken me.
you should be stripped of your user name. you are not worthy.
The fact that you don't get the fact that he doesn't actually care about the star ratings shows how stupid and naive you are, not to mention a complete jackass. I'm not an LCC grad so I think you're safe on the alma mater thing.
He cares, he lives and dies with it. Why do you think he gets so worked up about it all the time.
Nice comeback. I know you are but what am I? What are you, 7?
tanfan blowers sicken me.
Black Friday mobs are about as pathetic as... arguing a message board poster's star rating?
