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 gay, Torture hopes you die in real life too, Strawberrykitty wants you to burn in hell, 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.
