Note: quotes are unattributed so as to devalue the person. (actually, I'm just lazy, but that sounded fun and Freudian.)
why don't you demonstrate your roleplaying greatness for us. I admit though, I don't remember any of your legendary works of great literature.
My roleplaying greatness is what you ask for? I believe I wrote something that impressed one particular person at the time; I don't know if he remembers it, however. Ask Matt Crouch if he does...
(It was a news report regarding the incompetence of the Doublestar administration's running of The Dark Dynasty, or something along those lines-- that post is what got me first noticed on FB by Avalon and eventually led to a month of monkeyness as we took the vast majority of good FB countries before they reset.)
But anyway, it doesn't really matter if I'm a roleplaying god. I can still look at and distinguish crap from non-crap.
Gee i spose we hit a soft spot with j g ahahahahaa!
Lets just hope he hasnt fallen off a cliff!!
I think I'm rather neutral on that possibility. Has he? Who cares? Are you saying that the original poster is worth something? I tend to disagree that we should make that assumption; cost and benefit analysis should be performed, and frankly, I don't see anything in the benefit column of that particular individual.
because some ppl forgot that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything.
That's a value I absolutely don't agree with. Saying someone "forgot it" implies that you think it is a deficiency on their part; in reality, you are just trying to enforce your own particular values on someone else. I believe that someone (most especially me) should say mean things if it influences their reality in a way that is positive; discouraging posts like Mr. Crow's (and encouraging better writing, such as that which doesn't overuse cliched language and topics) benefits me because I am now a bit less likely to read crap like this again and lose valuable seconds of my life. I believe that people should also say mean things if they are the truth; the truth was, the post wasn't very interesting or funny.
I've had alot of fun pissing you off and starting a pointless debate
Pissing me off? Why do people mistake effective writing that gets the idea across as angry? I think you're an idiot; that has been my first point. Am I somehow emotionally attached to that judgment*? No. I think you're an idiot, and that's just about it. I'm not going to war or court, or financing a great big media campaign to proselytize the fact that you are of less than average intelligence; I am saying it. Very little effort on my part, and I'm saying it merely because I think that your reaction to Guido's postings has been incredibly overreactive and especially lacking in firm, well-supported argumentation. Now, perhaps it is the length of my posts that makes you think I'm somehow attached to this argument; shortly, it isn't. I enjoy writing, especially when I don't have to use footnotes or MLA notations and such. Matching wits with even the lowest intellect can be fun, even if you somehow drag me down to your level.
*note: judgments of intelligence or lack thereof aren't moral judgments, Rob.
if you knew alittle more about the details behind the whole attica/ucf saga you might get a chuckle out of it.
I know more about it than you might think. It elicits a groan. Why? The UCF hasn't really been very powerful on WG for quite awhile. The "sinister grip" of the UCF has been, frankly, pretty weak. Singular persons on this world could have taken them all. It has mostly been them at the mercy of others. When they destroyed G1, you may have noticed that they had a bit of non-UCF help. They were never a threat to anyone on their own; the largeness of their federation didn't make them a threat to anyone. Rat Dance and other federations have been the UCF's superior for quite some time.
