    This was posted in response to a thread about the Champ spawn changes.



    Is the IQ of people who play this game going down the drain? Or is it just how most of the players now communicate?
     
  2. so he is saying that guilds are good and you think that is bad ?? why not make a bigger guild or work with other smaller guilds

    or come to origin(insert small mostly empty shard of choice here) and get scrolls or etc etc

    He's probably talking about the devious people who are walking around giving one million checks at random. Theres obviously lots of duping going on still...

    I have seen 3 different person hand over 100 millions each, and I am not there all the time, far from it, all that on atlantic. They hated me for some reason... oh yeah I was yelling at them like that guy.

    Funny thing, its not the IQ going down, its morphing all into : :danceb:
     
  5. Bah punctuation is so highly over rated

    That's quite an accomplishment. I am not sure I could do that, eccept with a lot of effort. Just by habit I put puncuation in. What they don't understand is that when they do that, most people won't bother reading it. It's just to painful to bother with.

    I'll will bet that a good majority of those that complain GMs won't respond write like that. I have only gotten a canned responce once.

    The poster could be foreign, or a just eager to make his point and doesn't care about spelling or punctuation or paragraphs.

    You never know who is on the other side of that keyboard, and you do not have to be perfect with grammar to make valid well thought out points.

    I would say there a lot of very well educated people that might have a horrible time making something as simple as a lamp in a shop class, or changing a tire on a car, or lets say calling the electric company three times complaining about your power being out when it was just a breaker that needed to be re-set...

    I would accept that, but this pen in front of me is better than him.

    That's really pretty close to average for most posters. I'm surprised you haven't noticed before.

    Not only that, but I've been informed by moderators before that pointing out people's grammar/spelling/etc. errors is a violation of the Terms of Service, so tread carefully.

    To someone who suggested that the poster may not have English as a first language? Perhaps not, but many who DO have English as a first language post similarly.
