Sociologists using Warcraft to predict the future of human civilization; sell books {WoW}

Mar 27th 2010 10:20PM @Hunterlicious
I'm not responsible for what people did 400 years ago. I'm responsible for learning from what they did so I won't repeat their mistakes. Which is exactly what we're doing in the civilized world, unlike you silly mucks who're actually disguising whether to instigate things like creationism on an equal level to biology.

I'm sure it makes you angry but there isn't really anything to talk about. Organized religion is the dumbest thing created by man and you live in the only developed country that lets it affect your political decisions.

I'm sure your ancestors were as dumb as mine, but you havn't learned anything from them.

Mar 26th 2010 4:37AM You mean americans, here in the civilized world we're perfectly fine without religion. Shit, we're even past discussing it and simply think of anyone who believe books to be true, because it just so happen to say so on their covers, as flaming idiots.

15 Minutes of Fame: The Frag Dolls' Valkyrie {WoW}

Feb 18th 2010 12:01PM Isn't funny how female gamers are always presented with a real life picture in interviews like this while male gamers aren't?

If you think your looks matters in an article about your gaming, well then, you're not a gamer.

Major EVE Online alliance CVA disbanded: espionage or hack? {Massively}

Oct 29th 2009 3:19AM I doubt /b/tards are behind it as they havn't been able to pull of anything remotely like this for years. These days /b/ operates as little more than an equivalent to a public chat channel in MMOs with a few pedophiles who think their IP's aren't logged.

Back on topic, I do hope it's legit and not a hack!

WoW China hit with more censorship upon relaunch {WoW}

Jul 31st 2009 10:16PM @impurezero
There is a big difference between a choice you make for yourself and advocating the choice of others, which is essentially what censorship is. Because censorship isn't the free choice of not going to a strip club because you think a big man in the sky will be upset with you, no, censorship is when you deny that free choice for others.

It's not a debate of morals either considering both a religious loonie and a Chinese official will agree on similar core rights and wrongs. You seem to bring the US into it and that's really a good example, because morally China and the US isn't that far appart.

You both torture and execute prisoners. Neither of you truely respect the sovereignty of other countries that get in your way. You both monitor your own citizens, and even go as far as to abduct citizens of your allied states illegally. Both your governmental systems are anti-democratic, China is worse on paper sure, but not counting votes that aren't handed to a winning party in an entire state isn't exactly something the US should pride itself for nor is the influence organized religion has on your government.

Really it's just a debate of faith. Christians believe boobs are wrong, the Chinese believe bones are wrong and I believe both groups should break free instead of being subdued but in terms of purpose I'd say the Chinese government wins since the censorship of WoW is just one small part of remaining one of the most powerful nations on earth compared to denying yourself boobs which is just stupid. :p

Just because I simplified as much as possible doesn't exactly make it wrong.

The simple fact is that the Bible you adore and cherish today contains less than 1% of it's source material. It was put together in a period of time where the Emperor desperately needed to bring together different cultures to keep his empire from collapsing upon itself in civil war, especailly the rising number of angry Christian who weren't all that happy about the abuse of previous years, at the same time meeting a strong demand within the higher soceity for a transformation of the emperor cult into a state based religion which wasn't centralized around a single person who would eventually die.

Now you may be both scared and dumb enough to look to religion to make you sleep better and that's your right un our soceity, but I've never understood why you loonies havn't demanded the full story instead of being content with the little you've got.

It's not like there aren't other scriptures or gospels out there, some of which might actually bring Jews, Moslems and Christians together. But you ignore them blindly because of your thousand year old dogmas.

Fools, the lot of you.

Jul 31st 2009 8:14AM Nathanyel, religious censorship more reasonable because they "feel" strongly? Please.

In China it's the government oppressing their people. In the US it's the people oppressing themselves, and for what? Because a Roman emperor once gathered a few scriptures in a book and told everyone God wrote it.

The Chinese government leads a billion and one of the most important and influentual ecconomies in the world. God leads the blind.

The disappearance (maybe) of faction pride {WoW}

May 21st 2009 3:10PM I think it's pretty unfortunate the wway Jayna and the new "king" of stormwind seem to be playing th biggest roles in world events because they're the two weakest leaders in my eyes. Jayna has always given me the impression of being dumb and Varian feels completely out of place. Maybe he'd fit in better if I had read their comic or attented the event where he sailed into Stormwind, but he still lacks leadership qualities (like being calm, collected, patient, overbearing etc) that Thrall possess.

The alliance does have cool leaders though, I mean Malfurion was always one of my favorites in Warcraft 3 and Magni is awesome. But Malfurion is still sleeping and Blizzard seem to be ignoring Magni... Then again Cairne is way cooler than Thrall and he's also left out of all the fun.

Breakfast topic: Your priority list {WoW}

May 14th 2009 8:31AM We raid two nights a week for three-four hours and it's always scheduled in advance. On top of that I'll need around an hour of herb gathering to pay for my repairs, which amounts to 7-9 hours a week. So raids are a fairly poor excuse for playing too much if you ask me. :p
