    Seriously this whole shard is down because the hampsters wheel broke is the dumbest thing ever. I'm so sick of seeing posts referring to this it makes me sick. Would the mods please remove any post that refers to the hampster wheel. They have no bearing on any post. All they do is bump post counts to make people feel special. This is my rant.

    Seriously this posting about people posting how the whole shard is down because the hampsters wheel broke is the dumbest thing ever. I'm so sick of seeing posts referring to this it makes me sick. Would the mods please remove any post that refers to people whining about people posting about the hampster wheel. They have no bearing on any posts since they are very simple to avoid . All they do is bump post counts to make people feel special. This is my rant (sort of).

    And how is this downhill? Hmmmmm? Hampsters and thier wheels don't run computers morons. To even insinuate that they do is just stupid.

    Then you got 2 people who can't even copy my post without screwing it up.

    That was a joke?
    Folk must have low standards with regards what's funny, where you come from.

    ...
    Either this is some cultural gap, you're playing dumb, or you're not...

    Yes, it's a pretty crap association, but it's not literal.
    The functioning of the UO servers has been associated with hamsters in wheels for as long as I've been around, and it probably has a heritage elsewhere on the internet.
    It's like an anthropomorphism. It doesn't have to be accurate.
