^ is a meme started by noted meme hater Blargh (Hitler and God fanboi and ED's own Eric Cartman) to troll people in #ed IRC. The idea is that the ^ symbol points to the person who posted the last message, then the message next to the ^ is something insulting. For example,
Blargh is always looking for ways to troll the people he hangs out with in IRC every day because he's a fucktard. As a result, he decided to steal the idea of pointing at people and throwing shit from black person, only applying it to IRC.
Using the ^ symbol shows your distaste for the topic, mods, or life in general. However, there are some general rules that Blargh follows:
- Only use ^ to piss off ops
- Only use ^ after being invited back into the channel after a ban
- Claim complete ownership over ^ and everything it stands for.
- When you get (re)banned, complain that you're going to tell Sheneequa because she's the only one who can stand you.
—Blargh, Justifying ^
Blargh threatening a new op who quickly told him STFU.
Newfags Catch On Slowly
Once the newfags get past the "LOL WUT" phase of ^-mastery, they begin to fuck it up badly.
Triflin obviously didn't mean to do that.
Blargh Sucks at it
Blargh pretty much always fails at getting the ^ right. He will nevertheless post his version of the log where he claims he did it right, and he will claim that you are lagging. He took CSIII. Believe him.
^ is just another reason Blargh (in his own mind) will never get aops in ED IRC. Put that together with his religious banter, lack of contribution to ED, and the fact that he, himself is a meme, and you'll soon realize that opping Blargh should only be done if everyone is about to quit a channel.
