What makes a bad word bad? {WoW}

Feb 1st 2012 4:09PM Everybody has had things said to them that make them feel bad, angry, or some other negative emotion. "They're just words" doesn't take you too far when you consider the fact that everybody is influenced by words constantly. It's our means of conveying our thoughts and, frequently, our emotions. They can make us feel good, bad, and everything in between. The only people that get nothing from words are sociopaths.

The Queue: Go eat a pizza pie {WoW}

Jan 4th 2012 3:08PM @Narayana

That plan doesn't completely work. It's been suggested before but the main problem is that by providing an advantage to the people that don't win rolls, you're inherently providing a disincentive to the people that have already won rolls. The people that win are less likely to win later rolls and have a greater incentive to leave the raid early. Groups would more regularly break up before the last boss.

Drama Mamas: Taking guild drama to Facebook {WoW}

Oct 4th 2011 2:37PM I've had one person write pretty awful things about me on her Facebook. When I spoke with her about them (in person, not online), she said that she didn't name any names so I shouldn't have any problem. The fact of the matter is that, whether or not anybody else knows that these things are being said about me (but honestly, people are smarter than that), *I* know they're about me. I don't like negative things being said about me any more than the next person. Veil of anonymity or not, an insult is an insult and you can always expect the insulted to feel...insulted.

Spiritual Guidance: Patch 4.3 holy priest buffs and more tier 13 set bonuses {WoW}

Oct 4th 2011 2:20PM Ya know, that's an interesting point. Presumably it shouldn't activate the bonus for a disc priest, but the tooltip suggests that it would. If it did, a disc priest could activate and immediately cancel their divine hymn to get an additional 10 second bonus. But after the first boost to Divine Hymn (affecting 5 targets instead of 3), it would be a waste of the cooldown, and if they channel the spell completely they'd only get 2 seconds of the bonus anyway.

Spiritual Guidance: Patch 4.3 holy priest buffs and more tier 13 set bonuses {WoW}

Oct 3rd 2011 4:14PM The duration of the 2-piece buff for holy was moved up to 23 because it's now linked with Divine Hymn, not Lightwell. We lose the first few seconds of its use with channeling, so the extra seconds are likely meant to compensate for that.

The Lawbringer: The relationship between Blizzard and PayPal {WoW}

That sucks. I wouldn't want the shadow of a permanent cancellation hanging over me when I didn't even do anything.

I had a similar non-WoW issue happen to me within the past week. I had a Bank of America account closed without notification and without reason and the account was still accepting my checks at the ATM! I got the matter settled, though the host of CS people I spoke with over the phone and in person could never explain to me what happened. They didn't know and each representative I spoke with said they had never seen anything like that happen before, as I hadn't violated any of their terms. In the end, all it cost me was about 2 hours of my time and a bank visit to get it sorted out, but it's still stressful to have something out of your control mess with you without ever understanding why.

The Lawbringer: The relationship between Blizzard and PayPal {WoW}

Sep 16th 2011 7:29PM The reason PayPal didn't condone those sorts of purchases is that there was no way for the buyer (or PayPal) to determine if the sale was of a legitimate item. Maybe it's an expired code? Maybe it's a fake? Only the seller knows for sure and PayPal wouldn't want to be held liable for questionable goods.

Operating directly with Blizzard is a different matter altogether, as there's no question that the goods being sold by one player to another are legitimate. The sale itself is still taking place in-game on Blizzards platform. There's no way for anybody to get ripped off, so there's no reason that PayPal wouldn't want a part of the action.

Sep 16th 2011 7:20PM Then you could argue that getting an item itself is semi-random (since there are loot tables, you know what could drop off of a mob), but that doesn't extend to the auction houses themselves. Sellers choose the prices at which to sell their products and buyers choose whether or not to purchase those products.

Even if I gambled and won something in real life, my selling that item to a buyer wouldn't be considered gambling.
