One time my “friend” got reprimanded on Fiverr’s forum for creating absurd posts, responding in a snarky demeanor (but actually his voice is quite pleasant and he’s pretty charming about the whole act) and responding to most posts by delivering some weird, comedic, parody thing.
None of this actually contributed to my friend’s professional or freelance career. He just really enjoyed target posting for other writers. My friend knew that other creators thought his musings were hysterical. My friend also knew that plenty of people just didn’t understand the joke. My friend couldn’t accept that some people found him unfunny, rather - he would file them in the “this person doesn’t understand funny” category.
That notwithstanding, my friend (we’ll call him labooch915) just can’t prevent himself from behaving this way. So, should he continue to, it’s no one’s fault but his own.
That’s a lot of words. I’m sure there’s a value and comfort point in there somewhere.
