[SPAM?]Comment on Borderlands 2 story and drop 10lb in two days![SPAM?]
I'm trying to comment on the Borderlands 2 story on the front page but my comment (below, in case it's needed here) keeps getting marked as spam, even after I removed the paragraph I previously had in about links between this game, viagra, the size of your penis and the opportunity to work from home and make $200 a day. Could one of you bods fix it, please?
Comment; I think Yahtzee and I were the only two people left completely cold by Borderlands (for pretty much the same reasons, if I remember his review correctly). Due to a lack of RL PC gaming friends at the time I played it single player, though, which clearly isn't what it's meant for. Since them, several friends have made the console->PC switch so I'll have a group to play it with, but for me to even consider buying it I'll want to see an inventory system that actually works. If they've got "eighty seven bajillion guns", then I'd like a way to pick out the four guns out of that eighty seven gajillion that I've actually got some use for (as opposed to the 86.9999 gajillion guns which I will have to throw away because they are entirely useless) without giving myself a headache or RSI. Using Borderlands' inventory felt like trying to work one of those bloody awful manufacturer-made PC interface programs for printers/scanners.
An interesting setting, interesting bad guys, interesting characters, interesting missions, interesting combat mechanics and an interesting plot would be welcome additions too.

Oh, and out of interest, any chance you could point out what flagged this up as spam?

It was probably the part where you criticised Borderlands that did it.

I have been surprised by that, to be honest - I've only come across RPS and its community of thoughtful, intelligent individuals in the past few months, prior to which I'd assumed Borderlands was self-evidently shit. Well, self-evidently underwhelming. I'd been instructed that the Mass Effect series was similar and haven't tried it - I'll pick up the first one and see if I can find a second title I disagree with the hivemind on.
It's 'Wizardry' who's a pain in the arse around here, isn't he? I'll follow him around and see if an RPS forum career in contrarianism might suit me.

Be aware he is a specialist, somebody without proper training should not attempt to replicate the maneuvers and techniques demonstrated.
Mass Effect is not like borderlands except that shooting occurs. For example, you don't headbutt reporters who smart mouth you or discuss the philosophy of a 'justified' genocide.
