Mar 2nd 2010 3:11PM Actually... it's on in heroic... and I can't find the blue post stating that it wouldn't be available for heroic modes. I swear I read it somewhere.
That's disappointing. :(
Mar 2nd 2010 1:36PM According to a blue post explaining this buff when 3.3 was coming out... nope! :)
Mar 2nd 2010 1:34PM It also IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR HARD MODES.
I have yet to get into the game to confirm this, but that's how it was explained by a blue just before 3.3 hit.
Mar 2nd 2010 1:31PM Does this make ICC too easy for you? Go do hard modes, where this buff IS NOT AVAILABLE.
Good luck! =D
Jan 6th 2010 8:22PM Name calling is when you call someone... a name. That didn't seem particularly hard to understand. Judging your actions in this one instance is much different than judging you personally.
I'm not alone in my "misinterpretation" of that comment. It's blatantly obvious to me that you meant to deride the person you were responding to. Both him AND the original commenter, actually...
Now, I could ask those people I know who have seen this discussion to post here and back me up, but that seems silly. How easy would it be for me to create a couple names and make a few sock-puppet posts?
Plus, they think I'm stupidly just feeding the troll, so that wouldn't be ideal.
In any case, if that was actually not meant as sarcasm... there's little else to say, but
You, sir, fail at humor.
Ok, now my wife is poking fun at me for continuing this retarded conversation. I'll leave you with "the last word."
Disclaimer: I do NOT watch Fox news.
Jan 6th 2010 5:36PM Aaaand I think we're done. ROFL
It's been fun sparring. I'll check back for further responses.
Brent, internet friendships aren't all bad. I don't like the idea of avoiding making friends, but to each their own.
Jan 6th 2010 5:22PM "Oh, I must apologize. When you said in your very first post, "Fizzlethorpe and Cutatia [...] both of you trolled him," somehow I thought it was directed at me. My mistake. (See? I know about sarcasm)."
We're talking about name calling right? This is not name calling. However, since I've retracted my qualified apology in the post where I said "I find it much more satisfying to yell at trolls." I have actually indirectly called you a troll. The point is therefore rendered moot.
"I never said it wasn't sarcasm, only that it wasn't intended to be hurtful."
Oook... have a look at these:
There are over 25 definitions of sarcasm behind those links. Take your pick. "Intended to be hurtful" is in any of the ones I've ever read.
Bottom line is that whatever your intent was, your comment comes across as hurtful. I happen to be sympathetic enough toward Brent to take offence, and bored enough to stand up for him a bit. (slightly self-righteous too)
I don't think the joke makes you a piece of crap. I just think you came across as attacking him. If you had just said, "That joke came out wrong." I would have had nothing else to say. Instead you've repetedly accused me of misinterpreting it.
I posit that I am not misinterpreting the joke, and the way I'm reading it is actually the way it comes across.
Ironically, I seem to have found a way of communicating articulately that does not attract people to wish to be my friend.
Jan 6th 2010 3:02PM Accusing you of being "outright malicious to strangers" is not name calling. Calling you a troll would have been, but that was not directed at you. It follows a (reserved) apology to you, which I'm now regretting.
I don't have to use words of any kind to justify myself. I'm going to let the comment stand for itself:
"For more of Brent's helpful tips, google his incredibly well-thought out essay, 'Going Down: How farting in the elevator can save your life.'"
How you can say that that is not sarcasm is beyond me. You're are either not familiar with the definition of sarcasm, or you're trying to confuse the issue (which would, in fact, be trolling). It's not just my perception, either. It was a mocking, contemptuous remark (apparently) intended to wound Brent and cause others to deride him.
Jan 6th 2010 12:24PM I really don't think I need to go out of my way to justify anything. Especially when you've started name calling.
If you have such a bad hangup about my semantics, just substitute the word "malcontent" for "troll". Either way, even an idiot should be able to understand my comments without difficulty. ;-)
Jan 6th 2010 11:56AM He was bugged last night such that you couldn't spawn more than one abomination on 25 man. I'd be suprised if NOBODY killed him, but most guilds are waiting for a fix before spending any more attempts.
I just got online so I don't know if this problem has been fixed.
