seriously it has never made sense and never will

is it a self-perpetuating gimmick that you now feel obligated to continue lest you lose your only defining trait?

if this has already been covered fill me in as i haven't been here in any substantial fashion in the last 4 years or something

get back to me on this

p.s. the title got cut off but i think you can all figure it out

I think the RDM should stop, if only for his own sake.
Surely it gets annoying having to structure everything you post that way

Yuka thinks that you should learn to deal with it.
She also doesn't see anyone pointing everyone elses posting quirks.

It's surprisingly easy, actually.

The RDM first started posting in third person by accident, actually, back in the day, but then people made such a big deal of it that it turned into a thing of his and, at this point, it feels somewhat automatic.

Besides, no one would have remembered who the RDM was if he just popped back in and said, "Hi, I'm the RDM! Do you remember me? I used to post here." or something stupid like that.

Which doesn't make much sense, since anyone can do it.

I, for one, am glad the RDM still refers to himself in the third person. Consistency is good. Check! Besides, right now you're attacking the RDM's posting style, but soon you might start attacking teatime or or Kage's Mr. Green. Who knows what else? The sky is the limit for you destructive criticism. This is unacceptable! Frust

If this was seven years ago, you would all be calling for the RDM's head on a platter instead of defending him.

The RDM thinks it had something to do with time travel, or maybe spacemen.

Presumably he doesn't refer to himself in the third person IRL, or even on the internet in general, so it is a bit surprising that he never slips up at SG.

Nobody has explained yet why "THE RDM" refers to himself in the 3rd perl script.

I remember when Hype Up launched and The RDM decided to not speak in the third person there. He wasn't freed for long

But why does he refer to himself in the 3rd period of game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals?

The RDM once posted a thread titled "The RDM refers to himself in first person in this thread."

And it was a lie.

He got banned that day, but it was probably unrelated.
