WoW's 18 easiest achievements {WoW}

Feb 16th 2012 3:06PM Well, this explains why I have yet to see Nuramoc in the wild.

Know Your Lore: Shadowfang Keep {WoW}

Dec 15th 2010 7:35PM No, he just talks this way.

New Spirit Beast discovered on the PTR {WoW}

Mar 12th 2009 8:12PM Actually, I was kinda hoping it would have stars falling around it, as per:

Then, yes, Mr. Rossi would be spending a week or two helping me camp.

When AFK attacks {WoW}

Feb 10th 2009 12:01AM Well, for one thing, the little Mrs. doesn't work at WoW Insider, so it's a bit difficult for me to make posts here.

How insulting for you to arbitrarily decide that my husband's "talking for me" because he decided to post regarding an experience that he and I shared. Why would I post this on my realm forums? To make the other player feel even worse about a two-minute AFK that cost him hours and hours of farming? At least on WoW Insider it retains a veneer of anonymity - although not by much.

When I need your ridiculous brand of pseudo-feminism, I'll kick over a barrel. Don't speak for me or any other woman - ever.

Around Azeroth: Axxarien graffiti {WoW}

Aug 21st 2008 10:52AM Pyramid/pagoda thing aside, this isn't something the satyr erected - it's a night elf shrine that the satyr have defaced, same as in Satyrnaar. (This appears to be the one on Bloodmyst Isle.)

Dress of the day: Studio 28 Couture {Aisledash}

Mar 20th 2008 9:51AM It would've been nice to see a note here regarding the fact that even though it's a "custom-designed" dress, they apparently won't waste material on fat women, as the sizing doesn't go above a twelve.

What a joke.

Why was that a big deal? {ParentDish}

Mar 7th 2008 10:04PM Yeah, how dare we expect people to adapt and change! God, it's almost like you're a human being with a functioning frontal lobe, instead of a rock on the ground somewhere.

I can't believe you're defending homophobia... by saying that old people didn't like sharing space with non-Caucasian races and it's okay for them to be racist. Hey! Newsflash! No. It's not. And I'm hoping that most people reading this can see through the moronic "I thought all you libruls were tolerant, you're shure not toleratin' me" strawman.

I have not taught my children that they need to tolerate a slap in the face from a bully - I will not teach them that they need to tolerate jingoist hatred from the feeble-minded, regardless of what political leaning, faith, or race that person is - it's all one piece of garbage.

Mar 7th 2008 9:58PM Thank you for making this comment. Do people not remember that as recently as fifty years ago, the "majority" of people were opposed to letting those uppity negroes use the same bathroom as good white folks? Do you need to be reminded of Germany's majority in the 1940's? The majority that results in genocide in Africa, or ethnic cleansing in the Balkans? What other "majorities" do you want to align yourself with? Go ahead - I'll wait, while you tell me that SOMEHOW, being homophobic is totally different than Nazi Germany, or pre-1960 US, or the Balkans at any point in the last thirty years. Because it's the Bible? There were plenty of good, religious people who thought the Bible was pretty clear on blacks, too.

I am absolutely terrified at this idiotic mindset, because it shows that people learn nothing from RECENT history - history your parents may have been participants in, history that YOU may have been alive for - and that they will continue to make the same hateful, dangerous, vicious mistakes regarding other human beings, ad nauseam.

And, of course, if you want to keep this relevant... history repeats itself because parents aren't educating their children. Pure and simple. Stop abrogating your responsibility as a parent and start teaching your child about the ENTIRE world... not just bits and pieces.

Because, believe me, the real world has no trouble teaching them the lessons you left out - and it's not nearly as nice about it as you would be.

Court supports school's diversity curriculum {ParentDish}

Feb 11th 2008 9:48PM "If we disagree with diversity training, no matter why, we're bigots and intolerant."

Quite right. Although I understand quite a few who can't grasp the concept will then snipe back at this, saying that "we lack tolerance of the intolerant", possibly hoping to haul people right down with them into an infinite logical loop.

If you want to teach your kids that someone is evil not because of what they say or the actions they perform, but because they exist in the world, then yes - you're going to wear the label of "bigot".

Unlike you, though, I've based this on your actions - not on something involuntary, but on a choice that you've made.

Court supports school's diversity curriculum {ParentDish}

Feb 11th 2008 9:43PM Interesting attempt, but I'm going to have to give you a poor score for trying to prove that a=b.

See, education - whether about families, relationships, sex, or money - is A.

Ignorance is B.

Educating a child about different family types is A.

Not educating them about sexuality is B.

See the difference? Or should I get out some grade-two textbooks to help you get some A?
