I normally don't make threads like this, but it's something that really annoys me to no extent. I'm not pointing the finger at any particular forum (especially not this one, because as far as I know, there are alot of nice people here :) ), but I've been to several game-themed forums over the years, and I'm realizing that there are many who have alot of ignorant and selfish people, and people who present their opinions as if their facts (e.g. somebody who says "______ sucks"), and there are also people on forums like those that just like to go off topic for no reason, and the other posters join in the off-topic going. For example (and this is a recent one I might add), I made a post talking about how Duke Oda from E-SWAT should be in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing on this one forum, and somebody else says quote:"Topic title should be changed to "Hey, how about Vectorman from Vectorman be in the game?"

All in favor say "yes"."

And someone quotes that message by saying "Yes to that". God, I can't stand these kinds of people. Does anybody know where I'm coming from with this subject?

I know what you mean. You’ll find most of the guys who go off at you on the net are little stay at home mummy's boys who spend their whole life in front of a computer. To them nitpicking at other people’s opinions online is their way of acting tough. You’d be best not to worry about them because at the end of they day they are the pathetic ones :wink: . Anyway’s you still have this board, which has a lot of great people on it. :)

Well Kitey, you'll find plenty of discussion here, but thankfully it's all adult and very "contained" here. Don't mind the occasional off topic things people say because they're all in good fun. They rarely happen but sometimes they do. Sorry to hear about your aggravation but I certainly understand where you're coming from. I mostly lurk on a certain site's message board just to read these sort of things and I do so for a good laugh. If you're curious, this site contains the largest section of hints, faqs, tips and answers for any game you can think of. It's a good site, but on the forums what you're talking about runs rampant. Anywho sorry for going off-topic here :D

The kind of stuff you described, Kite, is PRECISELY why I have not joined the community at in spite of how much I love Earthbound. :grumpy:

I understand your frustration, Kite (anime messageboards are the same as you describe). We all have our pet-peeves. With messageboards and dealing with people in particular, I've learned a valuable lesson: Don't take things so personal.

You can't change what or how another person thinks, you can only share your view. If someone disagrees with you and hates what you love or believe in, well then, who cares? It's not like their opinion overrides your own.

So, um... my point in all of this can be best summed up with one latin phrase: illigitimi non carborundum.
Cheers. ;)
