The internet dictates that all cowardice should be rewarded, so I've decided to dedicate this week's post to all of the colorful and articulate things that random people have shared with me. I will, of course, be providing objective commentary, context, and in some cases, translations.
Best of Anonymous - Volume 1
Whenever these turn up, my immediate reaction is that my article was exactly correct and caused someone to reassess their life. Internet-badass anonymous decided that he didn't have a strong enough argument to share it with the class.
Just to clarify, I don't dictate my articles through a speech-to-text application. I type, just like everyone else. If you really believe that I hate everything with "MMO" in it, you're missing the entire point. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperbole
Sometimes in life, people decide to ignore the red squiggly line below their words, and the result can be traumatic to those of us who put in the extra .1 seconds.
Star Wars - The World of Repubcraft was the most expensive MMORPG developed in my lifetime, and the result was a poor copy of a game that is 10 years old. This can't be justified.
Being a married adult with a real job and a mortgage doesn't prevent me from holding myself accountable with people who I've made promises to online. If you're too busy to play a videogame, please, don't play. We don't want you in our group being shitty and stinking the place up.
This has nothing to do with nerdiness, and everything to do with common courtesy, so reassess online anonymity and start acting like a fucking human being. Thank you.
I can only come to the conclusion that Anonymous didn't even finish the title of the article. I wasn't making an impassioned plea to have you, who are probably the first semi-literate member of your family, play a game that requires reading. MUDs do a lot of things better than mainstream MMORPGs. If you're interested in learning to read, try Curious George.
I love when people self-analyze. Yes. Yes you are.
This is a good one to close on. To answer the question, I write because it entertains me. I am not, and will never be upset by any of the crazy people in the world (included the retards above).
It was hard to sort through hundreds of hateful banter, but it reminds me of why I continue to do what I do... To offend you, the reader, personally. Fuck you all.
