When I took workshop-style classes for my creative writing emphasis in college, the main thing our instructor/adviser would tell us is that everyone has their own style and method of conveying things; some styles and methods may not be everyone's cup of tea. It's what I try to keep in mind when talking to guildmates whose idea of "fun" in the game may differ from mine, for example.He is blunt, yes. It's a deviation from the more lighthearted content we're used to from the other writers. For someone who is adamant about making gold in-game and such-- that's his version of "fun" in the game-- the straightforward, no-frills, barely-crack-a-smile sort of tone of the article kind of fits. It's very businesslike. Am I a fan of it? No, not really. This is not my cup of tea. I only want "serious business" in my raids and, even then, in moderation with some laughs.When he talked about how five-man's were irrelevant when he "gets what he wants/needs," I had to take a step back. No, his response didn't really answer the question and it's always been a pet peeve of mine when people refuse to step into content because they don't personally benefit from it. But he's over there in his faction and guild and server, while I have mine. This isn't a guild application and I highly doubt that happenstance would throw us together even in a random BG (since opposite factions can't pug together). Again, when you look at it from a business-like perspective, it kind of makes sense.TL;DR: To each their own, and we can agree to disagree. Name-calling and associating said bad names with faction resolve nothing.
