Don't Click This

The Button was a subreddit, or a horrible experiment if you will, made by Reddit admins that appeared on April fools day. It consisted of a time that counted down from 60 and a button. Every time the button was pressed, the clock would reset. For the best of two weeks it would be a miracle to see the button go past 59 seconds. Overtime, cults formed over the button. There were the greys, in which I was in, who vowed never to press the button. There were groups for every color, purple being 50-59 and 60. You get it. Soon formed a group of reds who developed a system to make the button last as long as possible by only clicking in the final seconds. This of course was during the end days if you will. Many have clicked, there were remains of bodies lying on the ground from those who clicked and waiting to click alike. They were called the red guards. The greys who betrayed and non-greys who were set on their path to keep the button alive. The red guards, the 60s who worshiped their prophet, and the greys were the main 3 groups that stood. As the red guards fell one by one, the greys outnumbered them. Tired, people would simply go back to their subreddit homes after more than a month of walls of fame and button-trackers. Finally, on June the 5th, the button ended. The last clicker, a 60, had given his click. Few watched as the timer ticked down. Many wondering if it was finally over, others assuming their red guard brother would click once more. Alas, the greys had won. Everyone said their goodbyes as the button no longer was blue, but was simply a greyed box that read, "the experiment is over." Submissions were closed and a subreddit was born for talking about the aftermath of the subreddit. You can still go back to the archived subreddit and see the silent cries of those who didn't win. The screams of the dying, frozen now in an everlasting page, only to be studied by those who were not there to witness the rage of the button.

Well, you clicked it. Well, here's the forum game! 

 

Rules: 

explain why you clicked this, then say why the player above has a bad explanation. 

 

Examples: 

Player 1: I clicked this because I'm non-existent. 

Player 2: But if you are non-existent you couldn't post! 

               I clicked this because it said to not click this. 

 

So I will start: 

I clicked this to start this thread.

If I clicked on everything I haven't seen before, I'd probably be escorted vigorously from my home by some sort of government agency. Not necessarily one of my home country.

I clicked on this because the fact I hadn't was messing up my "next unread post" button, and I wanted to get rid of it.
