So, just to recap: You claimed to have heard an unreleased song, and then when we heard it and it didn't match your description, you claimed it was obviously a joke. Then another guy shows up claiming to have heard a bunch of unreleased songs... and you believe them. Do I have that right?

It was obviously a joke. I said the guitars were replaced by synths and drum samples. I mean, címon.

I never said I believed the guy. Just posted what he had posted elsewhere. For everyone else to decide if itís legit. Iíll believe it when I hear the songs.

I don't want to sound "paranoid" but does anyone suspect some of these random reddit and upstart Netpho accounts might be one and the same?

Your comments on his claims have just been straightforward reporting, when you had ample opportunity to write in a way that indicated these were claims you weren't sure about, rather than things you believed were true:

Again: You don't seem to write in a way that expresses what you seem to mean. And yet you're repeatedly incredulous that we don't understand you.

It's easy via text and board messages to project onto someone what you think they mean.. to be fair. For example I said yes to something via text today, and the other person said "you don't seem excited" because I just typed out a simple yes instead of going on about how excited i am, or using the correct punctuation to indicate excitement.

But I'll try to be more clear when typing up shit like this, i can see that.

There's guesswork involved in any written communication, sure. I think your texting example is a great case of how to go the extra mile to make yourself understood.

I use so many fuckin' exclamation points in my business emails to make it clear I'm happy/thankful/friendly, and I would absolutely never write that way otherwise. And then I have a dumb little Zoom meeting with them and I have to really play up the friendliness to continue that impression. (Not that I'm pretending and actually feel hostile toward them, I'm just pretty reserved in person and straightforward in my writing, and I know that could come across the wrong way to a stranger.) They're both just adaptations to make sure I'm getting my tone and meaning across. They're extra work, but they're necessary, or at least helpful.

Question

This? I had to dig into the code to see it



Yeah, I forgot, I have to end every email or chat interaction with "Thanks!" even when it makes absolutely no sense. It's a bizarre convention, but if you leave it out, it's orders of magnitude worse than hanging up the phone without saying goodbye.

That's why audio messages have all but replaced emails.

Aww it didn't show up right? Damn I've only been posting here 12 years, guess you can't blame me for doing it wrong.

Question

It might work on some browsers? I don't know if Reddit is real touchy about people reposting their stuff (ironic) (also, I had to download it and rehost it) or if I'm the browser I'm using at the moment (DuckDuckGo) just can't parse it (parenthesis).
