Aug 6th 2011 12:10PM King? I didn't vote for him!

Officers' Quarters: Guild wars {WoW}

Jan 24th 2011 2:20PM I would say Stressed and his guildies should take screen captures of all the stuff the other guild writes to them, so that in the case that something bad happens, they will have archived evidence of just how this other guild was treating them.

Drama Mamas: Breakup drama {WoW}

Nov 27th 2010 2:22PM Letter writer should name change. Sure its a hassle, but is it worth being able to play on the same server with friends?

Also that I will be able to play Cataclysm for a month! Woot!

Nov 22nd 2010 12:01PM I'm spending Thanksgiving in China this year, so we'll be lucky if we get Turkey. I'll be back in the states in time for leftovers though at the family's though, I hope.

Drama Mamas: When NSFW guild chat aggros a parent {WoW}

Nov 20th 2010 9:40AM Sorry to burst your perfect little bubble here aergor, but in the course of the real world there are topics that come up that are unsuitable for children, and not all of them involve swear words. But I can't stand being told to "grow up" by someone who can't handle swear words or "inappropriate topics". What world are you living in? The perfect little world of warcraft where no one goes to the bathroom (except in Grizzly Hills), no one has sex, and where politics consist of "Rawr Green skin orcs!" and "Dirty Alliance pigs!"? These things exist! (There is quite a lot of murder so I'll leave that one out.) Pretending they don't is immature and unrealistic. In fact, taking a little time to familiarize yourself with these demonic goings on in the world may in fact help you to understand them better.

That being said, it is perfectly alright for a parent to determine what their child can see and what they shouldn't be allowed to see. My problem here isn't with you enforcing PG ratings in your guild, but with your outlook on others.

If all you care about is people not using swear words, maybe YOU should grow up. They are nothing more than an arrangement of letters. Why do you differentiate between "that really sucked" and "that fuckin' sucked" when the meaning of both is clear and the same? The swear only serves to emphasize the thought in a way that "really" never could.

I'm not saying you have to use language like this or participate in discussions about these topics. But it is quite another thing entirely to discredit people who use different words than you and talk about things you are uncomfortable with.

As an adult who plays the game for fun outside of my normal life, I like to be able to blow off a little steam that I cannot do at work. But I DO understand what it means to be grown up. First and foremost, it means deciding who and what you care about and defending (and taking action to give them opportunities) those things to the last. Second, it means taking responsibility for your actions, or lack thereof. In the article, Enraged Mom does neither.

Assuming the story is 75% correct, that makes her in the wrong, especially considering the way her guildmates approached the situation after the fact. The unnamed author lays out the truth, and in the real world, the truth often hurts. There is absolutely NO excuse for the way she acted because it was something "she didn't want to hear". If the language used had been things she didn't care if her kid saw, she wouldn't have made a scene. But she did, and she got told the truth.

IMO no one should be banned for the scene that went down in guild. I think Enraged Mom should be given a temp ban for wasting GM's time and harassing other players.

Around Azeroth: Drinks with the boss {WoW}

Nov 16th 2010 11:21AM The TEA Party has absolutely no idea what it takes to govern America, as evidenced by people like Christine O'Donnell (and they even gave up on her near election time). Vilifying the people trying to do their jobs by spouting a bunch of bullshit about "Change", when that is clearly the OPPOSITE of their agenda, will not do any good.

/end political rant

Is that imaged linked to at the end the one with the naked guys in MC? If so, please label so I can navigate away.
