    What Densetsu said wasn't about me lol.
    It was about some guy spamming for some stupid ipod converter or something.

    I wasn't refering directly to you, just to the general public, hence the greentext. ;)

    It's not the logic of greentext, it's an ambiguity instilled in the English language. "You" can refer to a certain person or to a congregation. In fact, it can refer to an anonymous subject aswell. It can also be used in defining general truths.

    Examples:

    If you eat too many apples, you will get a wicked tummy ache.

    By saying this you don't necessarily mean that there is a person in your direct vicinity who eats apples right about now - everybody gets tummy aches when they eat apples.

    Greentext is used whenever you want to add a general sarcastic remark, thus I utilized it here.


    i totally meant you, I didn't know the context but even so, this still applies so I will stick to it. :P

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    I take no credit for that asskickery. I was just the little guy who stuck my tongue out at the perpetrator before Vulpes swooped in and provided air support.

    You know, that was going to be my profile background but I could never get it to look quite right.
