^ No, that’s their Unamused face. You can tell by the ears that are pricked up in a U shape. When Amused, the ears adopt an A shape. You should see them when they’re Frolicking or Sad.

It's been a life long goal of mine to punch a llama. I thought I'd realized that goal last year, but it turns out what I punched was an alpaca, which tastes very similar to a llama, but isn't a llama. Someday though...

The guy was all sassy about reporting me, and I said "Yeah well I can find you", and he didn't believe me, so I posted his phone number, he freaked out, and I never heard from him again.

I still have his contact info.
Are you saying it wasn't Kilbey? Then again we haven't heard from him in a while.

Somehow, I think everyone who has been registering multiple usernames for the last 11 years has been doing so in preparation for this very thread.

Can everyone go back to their original username now?

I did it for the reason to distance myself from associating with my previous nickname. It represented something I don't want anything to do with anymore. The reason may seem petty to others, but significant to me.

There's a reason I changed as I stated above, I don't really want to go back. Wouldn't mind the date of this username reflecting my original join date, but I don't care about the post counts.

I remember watching Cubeoid have a long conversation with himself one time. Pretty sure you did that a few times, too.

It used to be deranged stars for "clinically insane" at 10,000 posts. That was upped and the colored but orderly stars added, iirc.
