I usually have alot of humor. I many times just post small quick remarks, sometimes long threads.
I have no issue with naming or wanting to be a naming police, infact I've spoken up to it.
However this hole situation in this Forum should stop.
I have just read a thread degrading into. Overthrowing government s with guns, then to "beating them to death with a cricket bat" and replies like "You wont even get near me with my Glock" etc.
I wont even link to it as it is simply too childish.
Seriously people, get a grip. You need to GROW UP (not all, some).
Do You really have that much inferiority complex You need to prove Yourselves with post like that ???
This is a Forum for a game. In fact Star Trek. One of the earliest shows to go beyond the rasism and politics we have here on Earth. You could have a high position on a Starfllet no matter if You were Russian (it was made during the cold war), Afro American, Asian, male or Female etc.
In fact I dont even mind political or religious discussions either as long as it's done in mature and orderly fashion and most importantly with respect of each others different opinions. As they say "Agree to disagree".
I don't care if You like or dislike this game. Just respect that others do or don't. No need to constantly flag your opinions and bash or bully anyone that don't agree. Make a joke about it instead to balance it if You feel You must, hopefully less harmful.
These Forums need some seriously strong moderation atm. It has turned into Anarchy of the worst sort.
Wouldn't suprise from what I've seen lately if someoen now will flame and threaten to beat me too for making this post or even threaten me in-game or stalk me.
It has turned so bloody childish and imature that my 5 year old has more common sence.
Seriously take a step back, Inhale, exhale, wax on, wax off and think before posting. Geeez !!!
Edit: This thread has now turned into something really positive. People discussing music and sharing taste without bashin, except jokingly. Made me see lots of posters with excellent taste even if that is my subjective opionion of course. It was needed with some lightening up on the forum. Thanks to all that are joking in this thread and making it fun to read and post again (he he he, CommanderReed I stole Your colour here, he he he).
I can admit to first getting carried away when logging into the Forums and then posting this. I guess I hadn't really zipped up my Synical/Sarcastical/Anything Goes/Flameproof/Indestructible suit yet. For some reason the childishness in these Forums just got to me today. I guess I just wanted to read about the game that these forums are for and found having to sift throgh tons of garbage and I lost my patience for a bit.
While I agree with you I dont know why you made a new thread and didnt just post your response to all the garbage you were reading there.
And this is an internet gaming forum. For a video game. Have you played any mmorpgs before? I mean......it attracts ALL SORTS of people. Some of them are the coolest people you'll ever talk to. Some of them are the absolute scum of the earth. And just about everything in between. And the forum for those mmorpgs are the same way.
I myself am 28, and as I get older I see the people in the world and Im not really thrilled. As a young child I thought grown ups would generally be decent, and intelligent, and I would see that as a man. Now that Im a grown man, all I see around me are children. Loud mouthed, obnoxious, people who do things even little kids wouldnt DREAM of doing.
As the participant responsible for the Glock comment, let me just say that I was conversing in fun with someone who was most likely trolling. As it was happening, it didn't seem at all like anyone was being threatened or taking it very seriously.
Maybe I was seeing it wrong. I do have a tendency to read humor into almost everything.
