Dude we agree on like 90% of the things on this board for the most part, but to me pausing is just corny. If 100,000 people repeating "I'm Rick James BITCH!" was still funny for a year straight, then I can certainly understand your point, but that wasn't the case, and it's not here now either. Plus pause is just a conservative version of "that's what she said" and it typically winds up being less funny and more offensive. I'm not gay in any way, and I don't recall being paused on here and on very select few occasions elsewhere, so I'm not personally offended by it honestly, it just reminds me of when I hear people tell borderline insulting race jokes and be like "oh fuck off, it's a joke", but if I retort with a joke about their mother they are like "crossing a line there buddy". tl;dr version, just because someone doesn't find something u find funny to be funny doesn't mean they lack a sense of humor, and they have the right to call it corny.
