More confirmation that you're doing this for yourself, Eugene. Congratulations on finally coming up with a way to phrase it all, though, that doesn't make you sound like a complete jerk (at first). Well I am not a pirate, therefore I am not interested in your booty.....don't bring the banter junk into my topics please.Thats all this is - a group of ppl here who post a lot in fad and 'general friend' topics have to bring their tag team matches into legitimate topics and game disccusions where they DO NOT belong. There is a time and a place for it, (a thousand on this very board!) and it is disrespectful to me to de-rail my topic like y'all did...It is rude and counterproductive to the board, and alienates indepent users and opinions.Such talk has nothing to do with whatever points I make or others make - I am not part of the cool club, so you make fun of me, and and play pin the tail feathers on the chicken, and clutter the topic with pirate talk. micawber once made a little 'friendly-joke' post in a C.B. topic (and it WAS off topic, I admit) and was banned secondes later. Thank goodness for double standards...."Arrrrr..... walk thee plank, orlick, you are no Nintendo Lifer....."This topic was NEVER about your taste in gaming or game sites black dragon, I am not trying to change YOUR opinion, because it is irrelevant to THIS topic. This topic is about the DISCONNECT between the game media and game buyers, as illistrated by the independent NDP study. Especially women, who are either viewed as hardcore lap dogs stereotype or as idiot casuals by the sexist media. I was just trying to help this board and site be a little more conscious and proactive to that fact, to improve their business and overall quality. Look at how women are generally potrayed in games - just a big set of ta-ta's.But no good deed goes unpunished. Ben Cartwright: You and your education. Adam Cartwright: Education is progress! Now what have you got against it? Ben Cartwright: I don't have anything against education - as long as it doesn't interfere with your thinking!
