In any case I'm asking this thread to get closed. Because now it's turning into a blame game and that's probably the last thing Jim wanted.
Was trying to avoid this thread as I am probably one of the people who can be possibly seen as occasionally standing almost kind of close to over the line on the "Be Excellent Rule" (but only if you are stupid, because we all know I am perfect and what nots :p).
Rule of thumb: If you are just posting to bitch about someone else, don't do it. Go do something else. Post on something else. Play a game. Watch some porn and make man-mayo, whatever. The people who are "bad" will stick out like sore thumbs and be murdered by the lawnmower man and things will resolve itself without any input whatsoever.
Lovely weather around here. Sunny but a bit chilly. A nice change from yesterday's terrible heat.
We've seeing ups and downs all over. Three days ago the sun was out, most the snow was gone, and temperatures were in the 40s. Now we've got snow again and it's struggling to stay above double-digits.
And people forget how to drive when it's snowing only after 2 days of it not. At least 2 highway multi-car pileups.
Well that's certainly a mood-killer isn't it?
I saw a mubcrab the other day.
Still doesn't beat Frankenstorm and the week after it.
Simultaneous Nor'easter plus tropical hurricane, then unseasonable warmth of 60 degrees Fahrenheit, then flash-freeze and a blizzard. God's a dick.
An excellent dick.
Filthy creatures. The mudcrabs, not you guys.
...Wait, no. You were right.
However, kadayi bashing will bring you nowhere. I dont know if its from not really knowing your way around these forums or if its from pure "OMG I HAVE TO REACT" attitude you seem to have, kads as well as you have valid points to bring throughout your forum life. Yes, stuff kad says is sometimes annoying (to you), but in order to bring a point across, I think everyone should take a step back and realise that they are typing in words on a computer, and the others are doing just the same.
Kads has been banned before for some nonexcellent stuff, I agree that he says some pretty provocative stuff, but sadly, its always the people that feel provoked that are horribly being unsensible and calling names. Not that I say you are, but you generally tend to try to bring down a thread on "silliness" and "everyone agrees that xyz". RPS forums, unmoderated as they are right now, are not the right place for that.
Ive seen you post on other sites, its always the same.. flavour, shall we call it. And its mostly negative, destroying, in some instances even. People here know better than to let them get bested by negativists and "discussion destroyers" (Im being overly dramatic, sorry), but it would be awesomely fucking awesome, if you could just get over the fact that kads likes to poke you for science -for the sake of discussion- and actually give a meaningful answer, which everyone, no matter how new they are, is allowed and encouraged, and most importantly ABLE to give.
Shooop. I love you. Dont diss anyone, they have valid points, just as valid as yours.
I'm a bit taken back by that Quanta. I appreciate the mediation, because I'm really not happy about the verbal sparring I've had with Kad and anyone else here.
They do have valid points. I've explicitly agreed with them on some of them. But it's really counter-productive for someone to tell me I'm a "fanboy" just because I say I say I don't like one thing more than other because I'm judging them on actions first and then possible actions instead of both equally. I'm probably guilty of the same to an extent. I'm certainly not proud about that and I won't deny it. I'm working on that, sorry.
For some positive thinking, come visit the "Where Are They Now? Game Features That Went MIA" thread. We're looking back at things we liked in games of the past we'd like to see again in the future.
