Getting downrated in

I think you all misunderstand my point. Saying that you are an Elitist Jerk before acting like one doesn't excuse it. Some people may have less of a problem with their behavior, but I do and I have the right to feel so. I find it ironic that you are lecturing about preventing people from posting pointless things while you've done just that. I have explained all of these points in my previous post which you lot seem to have missed. Your arguments are flawed too:
"Wait...are you complaining about Elitist Jerks being....elitist..and ..jerks?"
Gee, that sounds a lot like: "To be fair, when you have the words "elitist" and "jerks" in the name of their website, you should know what to expect."
Everything you said to counter my post has been fallacious or has already said by another poster. If this were EJ, you would be banned.
See what I did there? I have just been an Elitist Jerk. How does that make you feel? Hopefully now you understand my point.

I think I get what Ruxor was trying to say before he got brutally downrated into
oblivion. While the Elitist Jerks has every right to run their website the way they want, I
and many others strongly disagree with their attitude. I find it just plain arrogant,
regardless what disclaimers they make you agree to.
Despite what some illiterate mouth-breathers might say in defense, /b/ is the asshole of
the internet. They warn you about it beforehand but that doesn't make the behavior
found on the board excusable. EJ is the same only on the opposite side of the spectrum.
Rather than excessive chaos, it's extreme order (and it's about wow). Extreme
moderation creates a certain prestige to posting on EJ which in turn can translate into
arrogance and/or narcissism among the posters (and moderators). An infraction based
on misplaced punctuation is almost sickening. I believe there are better ways to filter out
morons than Grammar-Nazism.
Now, its foolish of me to start judging Aldriana and other EJ users especially since I
haven't taken part in an Elitist Jerks thread in quite a while nor do I know any of the
Moderators personally. Having said that, none of this should be taken as fact, merely my
Anyway, I do disagree with the rest of Ruxor's post. Aldriana uses math to create
optimal rotations, gearing guides, etc. So despite what you believe, there are very few
rogues if any who will play "better" using a different playstyle. I for one appreciate the various spreadsheets that Aldriana has provided the WoW community with. I got my rogue to 80 just prior to Ulduar's release and I would have been utterly lost without them. I'm also glad he recieved an item in his honor. If anyone deserves it, it's him. Thanks Chase for the insightful interview!
To finish off:
"we are easily the most reviled class in WoW. "
"Playing a rogue has become a thankless job."
"I'd like to take this opportunity to reverse that trend."
Good luck with that. "lol, shadowstep+ambush" in 10-19 bgs says hello. ;)
Sep 11th 2010 10:12AM For the first few characters I started, I always ended up wandering out of the starting zone and getting slaughtered. I was truly a sad specimen. Always asking people how to do everything. I didn't understand the / commands until my 3rd trial account or so. When I got my first character on my paid account, I spent so much money on repair bills that I only managed to get my first gold when I was about lvl 27.
