Default What the story behind April 2013?

I often see this:

Quote:
April 2013

What the origin of this? Are they new posters? Are they butthurt old posters? was it a trolling attempt?

People started saying that as an insult.

Pretty stupid.
Why specifically April 2013? Was it a thread that provoked it? Was it one particular poster?
I guess it has something to do with the start of the playoffs

It is because the collective IQ of 2013 is the size of a nut.


most of them are trolls, morons, alts and very disrespectful towards other members. Most are coincidentally Lebron stans and Knicks fans though...weird.

Why is OP so obsessed with talking about the old days of ISH? It's a new era. Either adapt or get out

You'll notice there are no posters with Jan, Feb, March, 2013 join dates... And unlikely any with Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec 2012 join dates either.

Jeff had not opened registration for new accounts for about a year and the immense levels of stupidity lurking behind that closed gate had reached epic boiling points. Once the gate was open, we saw all sorts of facepalm-worthy posts and threads created by new posters / alts.

Jeff opened up registration and a large % of the accounts waiting to join were apparently troll alts.
