A few things on my mind:
Personally...I do believe this thread is stupid. (Why am I posting it, you may ask? Because I feel my 2 cent is important too)
I think the problem stems from the fact that people do actually take this thread rather seriously, and instead of treating this as rather a WARNING (pardon my capitals) than a strict "Hey, you MUST blist this person".
Rowena, you had good points in your post. I don't agree with everything you say, but rating you up for a good, thought out argument. I'm also rating up Dabuddaman for his thoughtful interjections. I personally don't add anyone to my /blist from this thread, unless I have dealt with them and had a similarly bad experience. However, I feel the thread is not
useless- if I see someone's name in here multiple times, from different people, I will be cautious in my interaction with them (if I ever have an opportunity to have any interaction in the first place). So I use this as a guide of sorts, rather than a "(s)he's in the /blist forum, so I'll add them to mine" mentality.
And you and Dabuddaman are right- people have taken this topic way
too seriously. Even I posted not long ago- kind of a rant against people who seemed to have a post every day. But I maintain my /blist weekly now- some people stay on, others get removed. It's like gardening- even if you have a big tree, if you don't do some pruning, it won't grow any better. (Does that sound as hick as I think it does?)
...To everyone else, I just want to say thanx for teaching me a few things. I'm still learning a few things in rl, and the game and you have helped me out. I've removed those who are not truly, truly a nuissance from my /blist today. From now on, if someone says something to tick me off, I will just ignore them until they are done ranting. Thanx guys^^.
You have actually put a smile on my face- I hope you're being sincere, and that you took what I and some others have said as constructive criticism. It was refeshing to see that response, rather than an angry retort- you could have taken what was said in a personal way, and have instead used what was said & changed your outlook. Rated you up for the positive attitude. ^^
Anonymous is a $@&*ing noob! I blisted his stupid #85 like 4 months ago^^. Anonymous, I hope you die in real life. I have made sure everyone on Formosa, Mastercraft, and ALOT of other Linkshells have blisted you!!!
Wolverine said you are ***, Torture hopes you die in real life too, Strawberrykitty wants you to burn in ****, and I want you and your stupid %*# LS to die too!
FORMOSA forever! We pwn your #*&! The truth is, you will never change, and always be blisted by the 300+ people I have gotten you blisted by!! HAHAHA! Anonymous is a nOOB!
Lucretious and Ehlana both hope you quit FFXI btw^^.
For the mindless personal assault (which, IMHO speaks more about your character than Anonymous'), as well as posting not only here but also creating a new topic in the Remora forum stating exactly the same thing
I'm rating you down.
