Popular: regarded with great favor, approval, or affection especially by the general public.

As in: "Iffy is not popular; rather, he is annoying enough to warrant considerable approbation."

But popular enough to have his own nickname, eh? ;)

It seems that every week I make a post saying that irony has died. And every one of those posts has a quote in it. And every quote comes from the very same Spiderweb member.

Hi, Iffy. *waves*
Irony is dead.

Have I really changed the boards that much?
Or am I just popular
Long live Irony.

You could hardly call Iffy a good nickname. Whatever though, it's your choice.

Well, I never said it was particularly *good*, in fact, where I'm from "iffy" means "doubtful". So er, it's well, pretty bad I suppose :D

A nickname does not evidence popularity; nor does popularity ensure a nickname. Typically a nickname is assigned due to either convenience, or endearment.
Iffy has a nickname because "Infernal Flamming Muffin" is excessive on the fingers to type and wearying on the mind to read (not to mention the need to put an end to the "flamming"/"flaming"/spamming issue. ugh.).
It is much like how Emperor Tullegolar (when is he due back?) is called Tully, or how Lenar is an abbreviation of my own original PDN (I mean, who wants to type out "The Inexorable Lord Grimm, of Lenar Labs" all the time?). It has nothing to do with popularity or infamy. It just keeps things short and simple.

Umm, Ceylon...you forgot to quote the :P too.
It defines a lot of the post.

Oh, and popularity has to do with how well you are known. Then, there is good and bad popularity.

"Infamous" fits you a lot better than "popular", Dikiyoba is afraid.

That basically fits it.
At least I don't spam on purpose.

(I don't like to get in troble with anything, and warnings and things like warning really stun me for a second or two)

I heard a man sing "The Muffin Man" one day. He got to see the light.

I intentionally left off the Graemlin. Not a big fan. I apologize for ruining the message of your post.

By the way, SPAM is not a matter of intent; no Mens Rea is necessary. Whether something is SPAM is not typically decided by the Spammer. Who cares if it is done on "purpose" or not?

As the definition denotes, "popular" does have a positive connotation which cannot apply to Iffy. "Infamous" also seems too good. How about "plague-like"?

I'd go with ubiquitous. It's appropriately and neutrally understated. In my mind it is forever associated with lint, which helps.

—Alorael, who must point out that SPAM is the food product. It's the lowercase version that is ubiquitous online.

All and all, I have to give the Muffin a break. I mean at least he isn't posting animal comics.

So, here is me saying I like the Muffin's posts better than animal comics.

Stop the insanity.
