Gah, I hate that we can't tell the difference between banned and deactivated accounts anymore. After the OP's comments about Mexicans, I wouldn't be surprised if she was banned. If so, I guess it's a matter of time until she tries to ban evade.
Seriously, the lived up to their username, ZurithePersistent They just would not leave the forums alone even though everyone had told her to fuck off and that... she kep on posting threads. She was really rude to others who commented on her threads and she was also raciest. She called a lot of people "ricey" which I'm sure you know is slang word for Asians (something like that, it's derogatory against the Asian community)
So they are more than likely been banned for all that.
Whoops I worded that wrong. When I said "they" I meant every user who deactivates/gets banned. But yea, I'm sure that's what she was aiming for, that's why I wasn't too interested in her. People like that are no fun :/
I had stage-fright and was easily scared, and meeting new people was also scary when I was very little. I didn't know them, so why would I want to talk to them? What if they hurt me or yelled at me? When I was 3 or 4 years old, my mom once had a reporter and camera-crew talk to her. They then turned their giant camera on me, which looked like a big cannon, and wanted me to say something cute. I was so afraid of the giant camera aimed at me, I only hid behind my mom's legs and mumbled out the phrase.
But somehow, I still managed to make friends because people broke the ice for me by talking to me first and that made it much easier to open up to them after I was comfortable around them. Even today I'm still slightly shy and hate being put on the spot and having to stand alone before a giant crowd, with everyone staring at me. Do I get mad at "popular people" for having friends? No. Why should I? I wouldn't give two shits about some popular person, online or IRL.
It's a LOT easier said than done. Just because it sounds easy to you just to walk up to some stranger at school and say "Hi there, can I be your friend?" doesn't mean that it isn't too forward or weird for everyone else. Telling someone to stop being shy is like telling an anorexic person to eat again - It's heavily ingrained in them. People who are shy might have certain reasons for being so, like being afraid of rejection by others, or thinking no one likes them. Maybe they are only good at talking to people they know well, or afraid of making a shitty first impression. And it's not necessarily shy people calling popular people jerks, it's people in general who are either jealous in some way or those popular people literally ARE jerks - But I'm speculating whether that last statement of yours was directed at somebody in particular.
