Icy Background

I can't explain, you would not understand....

Erm, yeah. So. Instead of figuring out what I'd write in my journal tonight, instead I daydreamed about being a rockstar and considered what Tibia would be like if everyone roleplayed properly, and was never out of character. Imagine! No racial tensions, no desperate cries of "swe?" or being asked that burning question "br?" No forum insults consisting of "Well, yeah, so you suck. But I guess puperty is difficult for you with a penis as small as a drawing pin, so I can understand why you get so caught up in Tibia so much. Don't worry, you'll probably be able to get a girlfriend some day." And that's the sort of thing you get from the intellegent players! The stupid ones can't even spell properly, let alone use punctuation! I was reading a thread on the Tibia forums tonight, and there was one irritating kid who whote each of his posts as one sentence, with no punctuation apart from a full stop at the end, and possibly a smattering of exclaimation marks. Oh! And he threw in LOL a lot, possibly with commas, but I don't recall. But the point is, tonight I was reminded of why I'd given up on reading the Tibia forums. I wish I was a moderator. I'd go through and boardban anyone who swore or talked about adult stuff that kids should not be reading about. I'd also close the stupid threads slagging off Brazilians and Swedes. People would come back to their thread to find that their posts had been edited to be grammatically correct, and be astonished to find that they'd been spelling "threat" wrong all these years. In the end, I wouldn't be able to cope with all the idots and the hate-threads that accompany them, and quit, demanding that Cipsoft implement an automated forum filter for profanity and unintelligable racial slurs.

And on that note, goodnight.
