I was reading thru some posts and someone mentioned that a great mood booster was the check out the Beta forums on the WoW official site. (my appologies, I forget the Name of who, take credit if its you ^_^)
Truer words were never spoken.
Most are a good read for being funny, but this one stood out to me because of the way its opened. The guy opens his post saying "...I have a life outside my computer..." and "and if someone with over 200 posts flames me, its cool because they probably don't have lives."
WoW thread "Blizzard Really Dropped the Ball"
Now the reason this is so funny to me is because:
- Posting on a message board automaticaly invites discussion of a topic. Its the whole point of the thing. You post somewhere - expect to be flamed/disagreed with. (one mans flame is another mans reasonable argument)
- The whole "im rubber your glue..." opening always always always sounds more like you are trying to convince yourself, and is RARELY ever believed by anyone else, and generaly, you will get flamed just for that on its own.
- "its cool because they probably don't have lives." Yay for you. You beat them to the punch. You flamed before being flamed. If feels not like a post for open discussion, but rather a challange. He is on the defensive before he even says what the post is about.
Its just a pity that I can't post a reply seeing as how im not in beta >.< Thats why Im posting here. To vent ^_^. That kinda post irritates me (thus not boosting my mood). Why can't ppl just be nice? If you don't like the game, its completely unnessessary to rub it in the faces of all those who might like it on the MB's for that game. If you arent happy, leave quietly, and rant elsewhere.
Oh well. ^_~I hope noone gets mad at me for posting this. ^_~
