๐Ÿ‡ (noun, past tense)
=====================

An old, poorly-conceived, ill-fated attempt to do something pointless, with a series of ๐Ÿ‡ emojis and an undefined aim, which was mired in scandal before ceasing to exist.

When team ๐Ÿ‡ existed, its goal was to engage in the illegal activities of having fun and making frens, by establishing a series of loosely-knit cells that denied its existence, each identifying as anything other than a group, and in doing so, to free itself from the ever increasing social regulations that constrain any group that's like, fun, these days.

Each cell existed with a different expressed purpose, typically presenting itself as some form of religion, support group, or self-help organization for chronic unrehabilitated shitposters.

Some cells chose to adopt a stable identity, such as Team ๐Ÿ‡ Purp, The Consensual ๐Ÿ‡rapes, The Gr๐Ÿ‡ps of Wrath, or Make America G๐Ÿ‡ape Again.

Other cells adopted no stable identity, instead operating as organizations with nondescript names, unified by no clear set of common beliefs.

In reality, the daily activities of each cell resembled those of a friend gr๐Ÿ‡p, a sort of book club without books, or a terrorist organization that doesn't actually do any terror, like the sorts of things we used to do on /b/ back when /b/ was good, even though /b/ was never good. Officially stated purposes aside, the daily activities of each group seem to have had little structure beyond whatever the members themselves felt like doing.

The history of the group is particularly difficult to trace because of the tendency of even its most loyal members to deny its existence, and to publicly demonize both the group and themselves by means of constant accusations of all manner of reprehensible scandals, in an effort to make their claims of the group's disintegration appear all the more plausible.

It is not known how many ๐Ÿ‡ cells existed, who the group's original founder was, or when the first cell began. The dates of major scandals are equally difficult to use for purposes of tracing the gr๐Ÿ‡p's history, since baselessly accusing each other of things that never happened appears to have been one of the primary methods of friendly communication used by gr๐Ÿ‡p members to identity one other.

Nevertheless, though these issues remain unclear, it is widely accepted by all experts on the subject that all ๐Ÿ‡ cells have been gone for a fucking long time, the primary reason for its demise being a highly publicized controversy in which the group's founder was found erstwhile to have engaged in a series of lewd and immoral acts including racism, sexism, fascism, frogs, sympathizing with the worst groups of scum on the planet, prostitution, gambling, emotional abuse, wife beating, knife beating, making things up, sexual harassment, sexual harrasment, (and spelling it both ways), deadnaming, headgaming, homicidal dreams, paying both sexes only 70% of what men make for the same work, homophobia, homosexuality, homophilia, veal, tax evasion, undisclosed feels, truancy, grooming, not responding to texts, smoking cigarettes even though it's like really bad for you, developing genuine emotional connections with the too-young and too-old and entirely too much experimentation with the medium, overloaded semantics, sexual soirees with the dead, satanism, vampirism, swinging both ways on swings and perhaps elsewhere, heteronormativity, martyrdom, radicalization of an innocent late january, cultural imperialism, cultural appropriation, cultural revolutions, treating trans-women like objects and cis-women like men, slut shaming, victim blaming, deicide, fur, murder-suicide, contaminating the water supply, using the X word for socially ignorant values of X, gaslighting, time travel, polyamory, ๐Ÿ‡rape, mixing truths and falsehoods in descriptions of both themselves and their loved ones, never loving anyone, infanticide, fratricide, barbicide, libel, neo-colonialism, hegemony, racketeering, free trade, engaging in unprotected anal sex for the purpose of procreation, communism, capitalism, masturbation, greed, and a series of other depraved activities that were sufficient to undermine the group's objectives and drive it once and for all from the planet. Amen.

Now accepting new members.
