If I seem uncharacteristically curt in the comments lately, it’s because I’ve read a generous surplus of comments along the lines of “STFU n00berz” from other people’s defective subliterate brats, and that sort of thing takes its toll on your patience. As always, I delete the pure ankle-biting insults on my own blog, which keeps things civil but also might make my hostility seem incongruous.
To a certain extent I have to enjoy pissing off the opposition, or else advocating unconventional gameplay and opinions becomes too much dang work. Several times I’ve hesitated before posting something, thinking “Oh man, this is going to cause a pain-in-the-ass thread.” The only way to get on with this is to accept it and enjoy the fencing, pointless as it is. If I seem mean spirited, it’s because I’m dumping a lot of agitation into a post as a sort of catharsis. I’m going to continue to review WoW as I do all games, but given the popularity of the title I expect things will be a little more combative the usual. At any rate, I’ll try to have some other posts as well, to prevent this from becoming a WoWblog.
