2009 – A Year In Quotes

This is taken from the list we compiled for the Quote of the Year award.

You may find here some that you think ought to have made the final cut. As the year’s still not out, we’ll still be adding to it right until the end.

Enjoy!

Capturing The Moment

Aarin (EA Forum) : ‘Uh, you obviously don’t know who I am, otherwise it would make sense why I have this many posts.’ (How to truly blow it with the public in one easy lesson)

Agent_Zero (EA Forum): ‘We’re judging people on their level of Simmerness?’ (Agent_Zero’s withering response to an outbreak of ‘nOOb-baiting’)

Cupcake (EA Forum) : ‘Someone got banned, modelling competitions, sign this petition, someone else got banned, even more modelling competitions, broken forums, sign this petition, forum still broken, yet another ban, now repeat until you have a headache.’ (one of many such posts helping others Simmer catch up which were applicable all year long!)

Darkslayer (EA Forum) : ‘I’m still peeved about my unjust banning. There are people still here who were downright abusive to the original poster I stuck up for in the thread that got me banned.’ (encapsulates the stupidity of certain EA administrators and moderators regarding the activities of HoNF trolls on their board).

FuryRed (EA Forum) : ‘I dunno, I come to the forums to escape the fighting on the Stories page, and what do I find?’ (A phrase she could have used sadly so often throughout the year)

Gruffman (EA Forum) : ‘Good riddance to them and the ignorance.’ (shedding no tears for the end of Shadow, Lipgloss and the last of the HoNF)

Jix2993 (EA Forum) : ‘This is getting out of hand’ (Possibly the most ominous quote of the whole year for what was to follow with the idiocies of HoNF)

Kinuko (EA Forum) : ‘What have I done?’ (after plugging Delphy’s Adjustable Breast Sliders and PoppyB promptly posting her results).

Maddy444 (EA Forum) : ‘But no one would notice if I got banned.’ (24 hours before she was – her name remains the second most searched for on the site and is central to three of the ten most visited threads)

Penelope (EA Forum) : ‘Browning is full of it.’ (Her response to Browning’s claim that his trolling behaviour had been as a result of hackers, not him, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary).

RavenAmy (Jazz Hands) : ‘If you are a bitch and a nerd, you belong at Jazz-Hands!’ (Encapsulating why it failed so badly to live up to the hype)

SabsyRina (SabsyRina’s Vox blog) : ‘I was basically a sick, tired, annoyed bitch’ (which sadly could summarise her behaviour for most of this year)
