Wow... this is bizarre. Not to mention distressing, and unwelcome. What brought this on?
Whatevs. Find balance and acceptance elsewhere, you wont find it here, with that hair-trigger temper.
Still, good luck wherever you go.
I have no room to talk as far as hair trigger temper. I feel bad for going overboard on my own post, and frankly I want to apologize for my own statements. Had me a bad day, and when I saw that poser statement I blew my cork.
Seriously, what the hell is it about fandoms that bring about this holier than thou attitude?
"Oh, so you're a fan of something! Congrats! You know which Jedi scratched his balls in scene 3 of the first movie. You have the right to gloat since the Queen of England found you worthy of getting the key to the whole damn country of France. Go ahead with the moronic insults like noob and fanboy. You've earned it since you know which Jedi had jock itch."
And sorry if this sounds judgemental, but between video games sites, MTG sites and the egotistical weirdos I've met at my local game store, I just see a lot of it in the nerd realm. No, not everyone there, but enough for me to just wanna say that the reasons that D&D have a negative stigma have nothing to do with the religious over-zealotry of the early 80s. Its fine to have an opinion, a passion etc, but man, it just permeates gaming so much.
So if people feel like calling me a sheep humper, feel free. The life which I embrace has some lowlives too. I have a tattoo of the famous Yosemite Sam "Back off!" mudflap. Feel free to mock me for it. But I don't have any friends who spam boards deliberately insulting everyone as posers.
