You know, not too long ago I found some really cool things; like Trailors of a Season 2 to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, great dance videos, and even a vid of somebody shooting themselves (I just happened to click on it by accident)... turned out, they were Rick-Rolls. I don't know why somebody made up such a horrible fad, but if you've been a victim of Rickrolling, then how about you post your frustration here. Use all the profanity and swearing you need to. I just hate it when people Rick Roll.
I got rickrolled when I was searcing for stuff concerning the MOTHER 3 translation fan project. There are alsoa butload of rickrolling concerning guitar hero 4...
Though, I've seen that guy on this forum, his signature was something like "OMG OMG OMG Check THIS" and that was some strange rickrolling with Window size hacks and exit-this-page-message hack, it was kinda strange.
I think rickroll WAS a clever idea. It was just a harmless prank, and still is, and what's stopping you from clicking the back button? I think you're/they're right in saying it's old now, and yes, it should be used sparinglingly, less and less as it gets older. However, getting all worked up about it is kind of rediculous. It's a 80's song. Just click the back button. Nobody's stopping you. It should definently be stopped, you're right, but getting angry over it is overreacting, I think.
Have you ever wondered why you get inserted into the vending machine sometimes? <_<
Meh, I'm going to do it anyway.
*inserts Luigi-San into the vending machine*
Rickrolling has already had it's 15 minutes of fame, it's time to move on and be original. No need to do it every time because it's no longer special and the user who performs it will get a bad name. >_>
