The Judeist Guide to Popularity and Notoriety

Day 1,965, 09:40 Published in USA USA by Jude Connors


Greetings and Salutations, My Fellow Americans and Ajay:

Brothers and sisters... friends... haterz... butthurt victims of my awesomeness... and the easily fooled... You are all simply amazing!!! I think that it is pretty damn cool that such a group of people... diversified yet unified through a common love of what can only be accurately identified as an addiction of the New World... can come together in one place and make the simple and elementary game we play everyday into something awesome. The friends and foes... the groups, the cliques, the classes... the number of players that either work together or try to defeat one another or push forth a particular agenda or plan. You are the ones who make me come back to this place each and every time I quit playing.

From long time eFriends like Rainy Sunday, Tiacha, Artela, Fionia, and Ligtreb to the people like Catri and Reaky that I brought in recently... From the butthurt victims of my trolling like Pfluffer, Agay, and the new version of AstraKatG, Mazzy to the new friends I make daily... YOU ALL MAKE THIS GAME VERY SPECIAL AND FUN!!!

Where else can an immoral, law-breaking, pot-smoking hippie like myself be both loved and hated by such an amazing community of people? Where else can a seasoned troll find such a pool of potential victims? Where else can a man loyal to his friendships find such loyal friends? Just know that, people. YOU ARE AWESOME!

Since my return, I have enjoyed this game like I haven't since Version 1. For the first time ever, I have joined a party that most of my friends throughout my eLife have been a member of... the Federalist Party. I have found that it is an amazing group of people, despite the analness of its operating standards. I know some people there are wary of me, and that is to be expected. In time, those who are worried will see that I am there to help and have fun, just like them. I have always been /h and have only recently found my pride and have always been associated with the Feds in some sort of way. Joining them was the most sensible decision I could make. The party is extremely helpful to noobs and there is a reason it is the largest party in the nation. I am p/h to be a Fed.

Trolling. It's an art. And it is a damn fun thing to do here in eRepublik. See... there are just some people who take things too seriously. There are those who tend to forget that this is just a game and is not real life. How can a virtual life be srs bsns anyway? A game is supposed to be fun, and I, like many trolls, am here to remind people of that.

Take notes, people; for I will explain to you how to NOT be trolled.

1. Don't tell a troll that you cannot be trolled. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED This is just silly and it's always the ones who are "untrollable" that are the most butthurt about it when they are trolled. They are the ones who kick-ban you from IRC chatrooms and expect you to apologize.

2. Don't be a White Knight. These people are my absolute favorites and are ALWAYS men rushing in to defend an allegedly female troll victim. Hey dude... not only will you too suffer by becoming a troll victim yourself, but you still ain't getting no cybersex from the chick you are trying to save. White Knights remind me of the old SEES v BROS mini-war we had wayyyyyy back when. Trust me, you DON'T wanna be a White Knight.

3. Don't feed the troll. This is the longest-lasting and most correct rule on the internet pertaining to trolls. We LIVE for the reaction. We wear kick-bans and butthurt badges on our sashes. Some of my favorite feedings are those people who White Knight, those who antagonize, and the Grammar Nazi's. Don't be one of those people.

4. Don't think that a troll will not use everything in his/her arsenal against you. NOTHING is off-limits. We are here to push buttons and most trolls subscribe to the Nero philosophy of "FIRE EVERYTHING!!!"

5. Don't take it personal. Trolls don't care who they troll. Otherwise they wouldn't be trolls - Duh!

I have especially loved the butthurt caused by my speaking of the continued Holy Word of the God Emperor, Dio Brando. Despite the Pfarisses who claim that I am a false prophet and wish to have me flogged because their inability to see the continued, living word of Dio comes through me; I have fully assumed and will continue to serve Dio and preach his word of Love.

May the Love of Dio Be With You, In You... Forever

Since Dio began coming to me through the smoke of the Holy Bong, I have acted as his representative, blessing eMarriages and spreading the love seed throughout the New World. I will not let anyone stop me. For just as there were those who doubted Dio when He himself walked upon the sands of Pakistan, there are those who doubt his Word through me. Dio has seen this and is saddened at their lack of faith.

Had they not forgotten Dio in the first place, I would probably not be the Messiah. But as I said, I will continue to teach the Continued, Living Word of Dio as His Holyness Pope Jude the First, and I invite all to Kiss the ring of redemption.

May the Love of Dio Be With You ALL, In You ALL... Forever!

His Holyness Pope Jude the First
eRepublik's Messiah

Oh man, way to stick the white knight thing to cromstar. :3 I don't know what to say.

Btw, excellent article.

Jude Connors

It wasn't Cromstar. It was two other fools.

Tiacha Day 1,965, 11:40

I just thought you say his sig on the fedforum 😛

morningblur Day 1,965, 11:31

You jumping in to basically bash Dio by arriving to the party several years too late and claiming to be part of it is nothing more than the petty ramblings of someone desperately trying to be relevant and matter again in the face of a community that has moved on. Face it, you have not mattered since you destroyed the old Lib party and gave us chickensguys and all his BS. When you left, nothing of value was lost. Since you have returned, nothing of value has been added. Congratulations way to not make a difference no matter what you do.

Jude Connors
Jude Connors Day 1,965, 11:33

Your opinion matters... please leave a message after the beep

morningblur Day 1,965, 11:48

Thanks, you prove my point.

Jude Connors
Jude Connors Day 1,965, 17:20

and i think i know who you are FINALLY. gotta go check some logs on IRC to confirm - lol

morningblur Day 1,965, 22:00

If you are looking for me on IRC then you won't find me. I have never been on IRC nor have I ever even had the program on any of my computers. Internet chat has never been anything I have found appealing. I have considered getting it though as most of this game takes place there. I was known by a different name back in BETA though. I lost that account early in V1 when you would get banned for 6 FPt's. We have never really spoken before. So good luck looking through your logs.

Marquis Andras
Marquis Andras Day 1,966, 06:03

jude who is this guy again? Never heard of him

Jude Connors
Jude Connors Day 1,966, 15:01

the butthurt is so funny. morningblur, you're not the smartest person i ever knew, but thanks for trying. Tell him what he's won, people.

truth be told, i thought this was geo pumpkinette t first, but no... someone already told me his new name.

you think you know me, morningblur; but it's amazing how much of me you DONT know. maybe that is why you are so butthurt. or maybe its because i put the Libertarian Party out of its misery, with the approval of the few remaining Libs that mattered... of which you were NOT.

May the Love of Dio Be With You IN You Forever, my Child.

Marquis Andras
Marquis Andras Day 1,966, 06:02

Whoa you are really wrong in this. Jude and I PTOed the Libs to make the best party this country as ever seen.... and it was ME that gave the party to CG now Jude so yeah. Wanna correct yourself?

morningblur Day 1,966, 10:28

Jude was instrumental in turning a respected party ie. the Libs into that marijuana garbage that it was turned into. As for your part, I have never heard of you before. Jude is well known though. A grown man who idolizes hippies. He was born too late to actually have been a hippie, So it seems he has read a few books or seen some movies and decided that he would take on a persona he did not create. So he chooses to model himself after a group of people who loved the freedom to lay around doped up, but couldn't be bothered to fight for their country to guarentee that freedom. Hell they even spit on returning soldiers who did fight for the country's freedom. Those are some great role models there. He comes back and once again uses other peoples creative thoughts and jumps on the Dio bandwagon several years too late. This entire article he published about what a great "troll" he is, well it's nothing more than little bits and pieces he has collected from around the internet that were written by someone else. This top "troll's" answer to my criticism was to post a link to a you tube video (made by someone else as well) saying ha ha shut up. For such a top "troll" that response was sorely lacking. So the claim to fame Jude has is never actually doing anything for himself, just riding the coatails of those who came before him and adopting the ideas of others as his own. And you ran here to defend that Marquis Andras? Good luck and defend away, I guess even Jude needs his own "white knight".

Marquis Andras
Marquis Andras Day 1,966, 12:46

LOL I was the co-creator of USMJ. Also known as youngHOOD. I take it you don't know much.. your also letting Jude troll you soo bad is hilarious bro.

morningblur Day 1,966, 12:58

Yes he has "trolled" me. I truly do not think I will ever recover from viewing a video on Youtube laughing and telling me to shut up. The horror of it still haunts me. As for the name youngHOOD, I still have never heard of you. I have been here since BETA so I guess you really just haven't done anything I found interesting enough to take notice of. Apparently though since you are a "youngHOOD" you still have plenty of time to do some noteworthy thing before you enter your "oldHOOD" years. Take a page from Jude's book and run with other people's ideas. He seems to have gotten pretty well known doing that, you can too. Good luck

Marquis Andras
Marquis Andras Day 1,966, 13:01

lol you so butthurt its kinda cute.... I been playing since 08 😉 Last I know you only been known as a nobody. My name is not around anymore us cuz of how badly I tainted it...also I move around too much. You been a "who" within the eUSA your whole Erep life.

Also stop trying so hard to insult. Its not a good look on you.

Marquis Andras
Marquis Andras Day 1,966, 13:02

BTW why don't you realize Jude gives no shit about "fio" hes just using this to troll the shit out of all you loldioist. Sadly its working. Not my fault Erep is your life. Try having one... its fun.

Marquis Andras
Marquis Andras Day 1,966, 13:54

And this is why I Lubs you too Clint.

morningblur Day 1,966, 17:24

"Last I know you only been known as a nobody"
That is correct. Unlike you though I haven't been so adamant that you should know who I am like you have been doing. You seem somewhat irritated that I just don't know who you are.

"Not my fault Erep is your life. Try having one... its fun. '
eRepublik is something I do to pass the time while I am working. If it was my "life" as you say I would most likely pop in on IRC where the meat of the game takes place. Or I would probably try to get involved with things. Or if eRepublik was my life I might just get upset at people not knowing who I am as you do. Don't you think?

"Also stop trying so hard to insult. Its not a good look on you"
I'm not trying to insult anyone. I merely called it as it was and called a player that claims to be some super troll on his BS. You decided to jump in and involve yourself then throw a fit when I said I'd never heard of you. There were no insults there. It was merely my opinion. And really my opinion shouldn't matter as much to you as you give the impression that it does.

Marquis Andras
Marquis Andras Day 1,966, 17:48

TL DR.... Can you give me something with less effort?

morningblur Day 1,966, 20:19

Well not really. If thought out and articulated responses are not your thing I guess there's just not much I can do for you. I do feel cheated though that my tax dollars pay for all these public schools yet you kids don't seem to have the ability to communicate beyond abbreviations, phrases with only a few words and internet memes with pictures. I guess our conversation has come to an end then. Take care of yourself, it's a tough world out there for those who lack the ability to properly communicate their thoughts.

Marquis Andras
Marquis Andras Day 1,966, 22:08

Hey sir butthurt a lot. I teach High School :3. Abbreviations and all the bullS*** is not all I know. Unfortunately I just chose to not spend too much effort with a dude who really gets mad at stuff in a game.

I got papers to grade. I better go make sure I teach my kids more. I will personally tell them guys like you feel cheated from their tax dollars. Maybe that will make you feel better?

Try understanding that not everybody is smart. Maybe you are one of the lucky few, but good luck understanding it.

I can already tell you feel that you are too smart to communicate with the "scum" like me. So continue talking to other Ereppers who get butthurt.

Also conversation is not coming to an end. You just want it too because you know you look like an ass...

morningblur Day 1,966, 23:11

"Hey sir butthurt a lot. I teach High School ."
There is so much wrong with that statement. You say you are a teacher. That means you are in charge of shaping young minds. I'm sure your school board would be so pleased to see that it had hired a teacher that considers "sir butthurt a lot" to be a proper form of communication. You are supposed to guide the kids and teach them not talk like one of their peers. As a teacher you should be above that. You certainly have a lot of growing up to do yourself before you should be put in charge of young minds.

"I just chose to not spend too much effort with a dude who really gets mad at stuff in a game."

Just where do you detect an angry tone coming from me. I am not angry with you in the least bit. I truly feel sorry for you. Your lack of ability to convey your thoughts without resorting to name calling (ie sir butthurt a lot) and profanity (ie bullS*** ) speaks volumes of your maturity level. You should not be teaching a high school class. You act as if you are still in a high school class.

"I can already tell you feel that you are too smart to communicate with the "scum" like me."

I have been communicating quite a bit with you today and I don't see you as scum. I do not know you at all, so I can't possibly make a determination as to whether you are scum or not. From your replies you are a bit immature and quick to anger, but that's far from being scum.

"Also conversation is not coming to an end. You just want it too because you know you look like an ass"

You said "TL DR.... Can you give me something with less effort?"
By that statement the only possible conclusion is that you wanted to end the conversation seeing as I use sentences and complete thoughts to get what I want to say out. From what you have said, you just don't like to communicate like that. I'm just not an abbreviation, short phrase and meme type of guy. It's a shame that our society has degenerated into that. If you want to continue, then do so.

WayneKerr Day 1,967, 04:37

morningblur, the fact you are writing essays in response while they have wrote nothing but a sentence or two is proof you been trolled hard...

Marquis Andras
Marquis Andras Day 1,967, 06:03

Don't worry the young minds I teach are very well knowledgeable kids. What I do in "Erep" has nothing to do with what I do in RL.... Also bro try listening to Wanye.

It is also unfortunate you chose not to talk in the meme/abbv. Style. Its currently the form of talking within most of our culture. Heck even my co-workers send me that kind of crap in e-mails. We just call it Jargon though 😛

Try adapting to the life style today bro. I can talk both ways personally. I take it your one of the older more traditional type of guys?

morningblur Day 1,967, 14:15

WayneKerr "morningblur, the fact you are writing essays in response while they have wrote nothing but a sentence or two is proof you been trolled hard... "

Each person has their own ways and mannerisms. In all facets of life I choose to communicate in actual thoughts and sentences. If making coherent replies to someone is "being trolled hard" then so be it.

Marquis Andras "Don't worry the young minds I teach are very well knowledgeable kids. What I do in "Erep" has nothing to do with what I do in RL..."

The young minds you teach may very well be knowledgeable kids. They however have gotten there due to no thanks to you. A slang/jargon talking teacher that lacks the ability to hold his own in a conversation without resorting to name calling and profanity is no role model. My oldest is in private school and my three year old will be as soon as she is ready, for the very reason of teachers like you. Teachers should lead and teach, not be concerned with trying "fit in " with the students they teach.

"It is also unfortunate you chose not to talk in the meme/abbv. Style. Its currently the form of talking within most of our culture."

No thanks, I gave up worrying about trying to fit in with the in crowd over twenty years ago when I graduated high school. When you discover the rest of the world will not take you seriously behaving like a kid, you will too.

"I take it your one of the older more traditional type of guys? "

At forty three years of age I should be right? Part of being an adult is acting like an adult. My employees would laugh me out of the office if I walked in acting like a teenager.

morningblur Day 1,967, 14:17

Dell Fargus " Well...well...

Very close Dell, a Dodge Charger to be exact. But your accuracy is uncanny. Well done

Marquis Andras
Marquis Andras Day 1,967, 14:54

Bro, you are so clueless its not even funny anymore. You are exactly one of the parents teachers these days hate working with. You are too into the old times, to really tell me that your kids are in private school because you hate teachers who try to "fit in" with their students? The teachers who still have that mind set, unfortunately are the ones that struggle with their students. If your students to not relate to you in ANY way and all they have of you is fear. They will just resent you and not give a crap about their school work. Yes you will have that lucky few who still do well. But those students are rare bro. Lucky for you as a dad, your students might have turned out to be those good ones. That's good on you for being the right dad I guess. But 90% of these students want a teacher they can have a 1 on 1 talk with. If they don't have that sorry they will sooner or later not care and give up on themselves. Because you yourself should know a strong portion of these kids don't have parents to go to.

You are really clueless in the situation because you want to stay "traditional". While I respect that, the fact you use that style of mentality to put others down, and I can almost tell you do that. Its pretty much a shame on you situation. Your coming off as a class A dick at the moment and its a look I hope you don't have in real life as well bro.

Try coming from a place of understanding for others and stop being so judgmental.

Just a few bro tips from me, a teacher you feel is not qualified...

😃 I fucking love this by the way, haven't had a good conversation with an erepper like this in a while.

BTW try not to compare a teachers office to a business office. Its two different environments If teachers lived all moody like that, we wouldn't be able to teach out students with happiness, we would just constantly give them the look of resentment. Last thing they need in their lives.

Marquis Andras
Marquis Andras Day 1,967, 14:56

Also, funny note, I am the teacher who almost got fired from the school by the principal because I failed the "star QB" of the football team. They went on a 4 game losing streak without him too.

I may be the teacher my kids love working with. Does not mean I am afraid to be a classical teacher either. I am not scared to be the bad guy. Trust me, the kids sometimes hate me because of it. The team was suppose to go to the state playoffs this year.
