Good for you for not being fat anymore.

I could say "good for you for brushing your teeth, and thus, not wasting healthcare money on dentists to fix your cavities.", but I won't.

No one deserves credit for taking care of and respecting their body.

I cut former fat kids some slack since it's the parents that dictate their diet, and since most of them got healthy as soon as they could control their own diet. Childhood obesity is abuse, and those kids started life with a handicap

Excellent response.

You are absolutely correct. I should have put a /s on that line.

Exactly. If you watch some of the old school films from the 50s, you'll see that taking care of your body, grooming and hygeine was part of being a good citizen.

I wish we could get on people for not being flaired like we could on the old site. Every time I see one of those I partially question if they still are.

Not any where near the level as we used to. Twas a time that you'd see "where's your flair" on 60% of threads.

Well, pigs could figure out who I am and get me fired. HR's full of hogs so it's career sooey-cide to be verified even if I use my own equipment and internet supply rather than corporate.

Verification is anonymous.

And this is why I made it a priority to get my flair before I brought up my fall from shitlord grace and my redemption.

I was flaired on the old site when it first became a thing to do, and have been through probably 6+ different accounts since (for privacy and shit). Didn't see the point after that, and after the slimgur issues, the lag time on verification, the dicky ricky issue, and I can't stand the mod team, and I don't trust anyone on the internet with my privacy. Even one of the mods posted in that thread (the dicky ricky sticky awhile back when someone put the mods on blast for that BS) that if they weren't a mod they wouldn't be verified. I get your point, and I'm sure there are fats on here from time to time (especially skinny fats) but I can't really imagine a fat interacting with the sub for very long (without having some kind of a breakdown or accidently saying something outing themselves as fat) or for there to be that many of them. Flair was never meant to be mandatory, just something fun to add to the sub.

Nothing against you, but I assume not verified = fat. There's literally no reason not to.

I was a fat kid too. Why do you think I am a shitlording bodybuilder now.

But then you could just as easily say "good for you for not wanting to be fat" or "good for you for thinking fat is gross" which is what basically this entire site is made of, and shouldn't that be something we shouldn't applaud or give credit for? The entire site would basically be a bunch of people saying "Whoop-de-shit, so you think fat people are gross, congratulations."

We're here to make fun of fatties and be disgusted, not pat somebody on the back for giving up dumbassery. There is a FPH discussion if they want to wax poetic about their ham years.
