    This crap started in the playoffs and there are now 10 pages of search results for it. But, I didn't get the memo. What does it mean, why do people say it, and most importantly, when will people stop? Tagging @Os Trigonum as the plurality author pushing this thing.

    Ahhhh. I understand now. And now it has its own thread. Can we stop? It's the most annoying acronym I've ever seen.

    You don't venture out of D&D much, do you?

    Started in the GARM probably a year ago, due to all the Melo threads. Prior, the joke was just, "Deserves it's own thread." and it partly is because Clutch is not a huge fan of the all-in-one, Summer news threads, so periodically tells news-makers to start a new thread for deserving news.

    Typical opinionated D&Der bossing around the bbs. :p

    Since you don't even venture of the D&D enough to see what the GARM is talking about, should you even get a vote? What do you think, @Os Trigonum, I think we need a poll on whether guys in D&D, who are late to the GARM party, deserve a vote on how the bbs does things.

    We seriously need to find the thread where IDIOT was made. I would do it, but 8/10/2018 is national lazy day.

    Nope. that isn't the thread of IDIOT origination. I remember.. I was there when it was created and I was blown away. I just have to do some search engine gymnastics to find it. I remember @Os Trigonum was there too.

    As Member #35, I think of myself as a sort of GARM Poster Emeritus. I built my cred in the Steve Francis days and I'm just coasting now. I do lurk a bit in the GARM and make the occasional snide comment to dog Melo, but yeah for the most part I don't have the endurance for Rockets talk like I used to. Just enough to belatedly run across and be annoyed by the posting fashions of the day.

    I've always thought it started during the DMo saga.
