Watch out! Some trolls have been spotted impersonating us little gnomes! How mean!

So I thought the point of coming up with a new word for "trolling" was to bring back its original meaning, and yet you people still post "you gnomin" to anything you see.

It's great to know that the internet has the ability to fuck fuck things up even before it's started.

And I thought I could have contributed to something special.

But mister! Its important to know that evil mean trolls have been hiding amongst us gnomes! You gotta see through their guise!

You's gnomin'.

The whole reason for gnome was to solidify a meaning. Not to call out everything you see as you's gnomin'.

I completely disagree with the idea of 10 gnome pictures running around being spammed in all sorts of chans (12 year olds of newgrounds). However, that is a sexy gnome. And it needs to be put to good use.

Pick a picture, and stick with it. When someone from another website comes here to gnome, we call them out. Picture doesn't always have to accompany "You's Gnomin'".

Gnomes are gay, ao you are fail.

Lets just stick to trolls.

But how can I subtly gnome without calling everyone else a gnome?

Also, apparently when you combine 50% gnome with 50% troll you receive a Gnoll.

I'm getting a slight feeling in my gut that is making me feel like the only reason you support this is because gnome is in your name.

This is just a guess though.

Partially, but i really want this to work, because troll is dead.

I think that the overuse will die down, it's just hyped because the thread came out recently, and soon it will be more normal. So, what gnome are we settling on? The original gnome face, the sexy gnome face, or the coloured gnome face?

Don't choose just one, use your preference. Gnomes and trolls are doomed to conflict, due to the thin line between the two. We can always use more gnome pictures.

I have a sudden urge to ask for this thread to be locked or deleted. This is getting nowhere, and everyone, eager to use the word, are using it as they would use the word troll. C'mon, we had something going here.

I don't want to be associated with the creation of something awful and annoying. I [might] have the power to stop some retarded meme virus from spreading across the forums. But because of the epic end of this thread out-weighing the fail [currently], I will let this thread float a bit more before I send out the sharks.

And what I mean by that is that people are just shouting the word here and there, not using it as it was intended.

You've created a monster. It's too late to go back. You've created something worse than the already ruined 'troll'.
I apologize but the only way to stop it is to voluntarily crucify yourself.

Good day.

Gnome is actually quite shadowed in this outcome, because most people who have used it thus far, including me, have used it in a some "trollish way," hence the misuse and junk. You really can't call out a gnome unless you be trollin' in the first place.

Cool, maybe this will take off, and we'll call every troll on NG a gnome.

Don't just replace the words.

I agree. Now it's like this:

"Hey, what's up"
"TROLL"
"Uh, what?"
"TROLL!"

Its misleading when you say to call all trolls gnomes. Gnomes are different.
