That’s not irony; it’s self-awareness.

What's exciting about Kyle Walker trolling is that he strips it down to the raw bare essentials. It's like seeing early Eddie Murphy material. He doesn't give a fuck what you think and he will say anything to get you thinking. The best part is all the people eating it up even though it's so obviously trolling. It really highlights the weaknesses of MP readers.

Bravo Kyle!

Dear fecking God.  

Admins finally put the other thread out of its misery and now another one starts?

Please Admins, shut this one down as well!

Nothing constructive is coming out of this anymore.

I am still mourning the loss of the other thread.  

Starting a new thread is like when your parents buy you a new hampster to replace the one that the cat ate.  

It’s just not the same.

There shall never be another!

I was thinking that Kyle would lose his nerve, such a pity.

Damn. That is a whole new level of passive-aggression.

I think the problem, in general, about being King of the Trolls is that in the end you're still a troll.

You're referring to the MP admins, I assume.

"While it’s easy to criticize the fallen soloist, the measure of the fallen lies not in how he fell but in how he gets back up. Fortunately for Walker, he still has this chance. "

If he was really messed up bad, none of this would be the slightest bit funny...as it is you most of you guys are borderline with the humor anyway. I still laughed at Burches Gofundme. So congrats for walking away in mostly one piece Kyle, heal up.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
