Don't Feed The Trolls

My good friend Amanda just posted an absolutely excellent guide everyone should read.

Lesson One: There Are Assholes On The Internet

I’m not even going to get into the why’s and how’s of this. Just accept it. 50% of the people you meet on the internet will be assholes. They may be assholes in real life. They may be people blowing off steam from a bad day. They may be trolling. Who knows? The end result is the same. If you are here, also on the internet, then you have pretty much agreed to the unwritten rule that you’re going to have to deal with assholes. Put on your big-girl (or boy) panties and move on.

Read it all right here.

I don't talk much in real life, and that carries over onto the Internet.

But the Internet is a dull place without trolls...

Besides, if you don't feed the troll, it will starve, can you live with that? Huh! Can you? D:

Anastasia, I've asked you 50 times if you will be playing SWTOR, will you?
It would be nice if we could play it together, I've already pre ordered, just waiting for December 22.

Please answer. ^.^

@Ed - Honestly it depends on GW 2. GW2 still hasn't announced a release date but it's speculated they'll be launching in 2011. If GW2 comes out first, I'll be playing that. I might try SWTOR anyway but if GW2 is out that's going to be taking up the vast majority of my time.

I haven't been that impressed with the previews and stuff released for SWTOR so far, I've signed up for testing and I guess we'll see. I'm super stoked for GW2 though, GW was my favourite MMORPG and I can see myself playing GW2 for a loooong time.

I am also buying GW 2 when it is available, it would be nice if we could play together like we did in AION and CO, and this time I promise not to be a douche. ^.^

There is also a big chance that my Fiancé will be playing GW 2 and/or SWTOR, although she is more inclined towards GW 2 as well.

@Ed - Haha x] well I'll post details of character name/server for any new games I play or betas I'm in, so we can all hang out :D

It's my new wake-up phone alarm.

It's the theme song to a series of four funny, short and random animation movies called ASDF.

Tell me if you like them! :)
