Quote fromYou misiunderstood, you post was poking fun at people who only come on the forums during a big event, my post was merely mocking why would anyone want to randomely join a site when theres no event near. Unless i misunderstood yours, in which case i apologize.
Oh, okay. I guess it just depends on your point of view, then. For instance, I'm really sick of people with 3 posts coming in and when I say, "There's always a possibility that it won't be Diablo III- like MD said, it could also be WC IV or just more hype for WotLK," saying to me, "Evry1 who thinkz is WC4 F U!!one11!"
The majority of people that have this pattern of joining, posting once or twice, and then never posting again once the event(s) is(are) over 1) have no information to back up their argument, 2) are hopeless fan bois that ignorantly believe things without proper review of the facts, 3) flame for no reason, 4) don't thoroughly read through posts and then flame the person, 5) spam incessently, 6) all post "I've been watching this forum for x years and have been playing Diablo since it came out," 7) regurgitate what has already been said at least once on every single page and then say, "WTF I DONT WANTZ 2 REED TEH HOLE F***IN THRED!!", and 8) are usually very immature about their posts.
Given, there are exceptions, and immaturity on a site for a game is okay (in general, though since this game is technically for adults, this shouldn't be an issue.) I've seen this time and time again, and you have to understand, from where I'm standing it gets very, very annoying.
