@ Drama Mana Lisa: Pure Epic Win! Please write all future columns like that and you will have a reader for life!

To each their own, but I couldn't really stand to read it, and skipped to Robin's advice. Not going to slam her or anything, just not my cup of tea.

Yup, agree with Martin. I could barely get two sentences into the reply before moving on. Just because it happened in a video game doesn't mean it needs to be related to a video game.

Jatt and Martin, you need to actually read the original column from/to Troubled Tank to see the context from which the RP replies are drawn.

@Jatt and@Martinand just because its a real world scenario doesnt mean you can't respond in a alternative fashion when someone asks for advice on a video game website.and @the "other woman" move on from that deadbeat, im a guy and guys who do that are worthless and will never change.

Honestly for me it's not so much that it's RP or written from a video game perspective as that it's poorly written. If you read the original letter in "Overpull" that's written in that style he's raining allusions like... rain... but you always know exactly what he's talking about. His metaphors work, and he's quite eloquent. The Drama Mama's advice in those columns, written in the same style, is a bit more clunky (nothing to be ashamed of, as obviously they've had less practice than "Overpull" does) but it's still readable. I'm trying to read Lisa's advice in this column and half the time I'm not sure exactly what she's talking about. "Call in an addon if you need help"... what? I don't think I've ever "call(ed) in an addon" in WoW, and I'm not entirely sure what it's supposed to mean in RL terms either.
