Postulate on the Greater Internet as a Whole

Lest we forget the underpinnings of forum behavior... I think this is basic thermodynamics or something.

It certainly explains what has happened here in the past.

One interesting thing... I've never seen the term "shitcock" on the net or in real life, other than on this cartoon.

Presumably it's a term of disparagement, like: "He's a right shitcock!"

Or is it an interjection? So instead of "Dammit!" one might shout "Shitcock!" when they strike their thumb with a hammer.

Or maybe it's a blasphemous profanity? Such as "Almighty Shitcock, Grant Us Peace!"

That's a problem with words like this that aren't yet in the dictionary, aren't in use, but the author insists on their use without defining them properly. No one knows how to use them, and they wither on the vine.

Pity. It looks like a nice word.

^ I think it's simply a meta-word that represents mental debasement.

In this particular context, I'm positive that the point is to show that according to the Greater Internet Fuckward Theory, a person of normal intelligence who is granted anonymity plus an audience will voluntarily lose control of his mind.

So the author strung words together to make semi profane nonsense that someone in a diminished capacity would utter.

"Shit" (profanity) + "Cock" (depending upon the context, can be obscene) is nonsense uttered by someone losing their mind as a troll.

Let us also not forget one of the great image memes of the last decade.



I love the sarcasm. "Problem?" nya hah hah. Like you relish someone else's difficulties.
