The general player base creeps me out.

Yeah. Enough to have me keep trade on a separate tab. Occasionally when I am doing dailies on a low level toon I click over. I am almost always regretting that decision. Reading trade for more than 20 seconds and you can make a strong case against evolution.

LOL . . . . true.I haven't had trade on, on regular basis on my main in . . . I'd say well over a year, maybe two. I've had sooo much less aggravation since I turned it off.But yeah . . . . though I don't know if CREEPY is the best word to describe most of the people. I guess you can blame the internet and the "f***wad theory" for some of it too, but so much of what I used to read in trade was beyond vile. I had to wonder, "does this person's parent (no matter that the player's age) know or approve of such things? What kind of home did this person grow up in to end up saying stuff like this??" And the appalling way people treat each other in PuGs and various chat channels, where the uninitiated is mercilessly taunted or given completely wrong answers (a real newbie, not yet knowledgeable about where to find anything or any of the great sites out there, asking a legitimate question). It brings to mind schoolyard bullies picking on the new kid, or anything they don't think is "cool" enough. In what other recreational environment are people SO unhelpful and so derisive of someone new to an encounter or of the game in general?Yeah, OK . . . creepy in that they are CREEPS. :P
