Prophecy for scrubs and winners
There's no "us" and no "them". There's only a game we all love for the most different reasons, and our common ground is Fumbbl.

You should pity those who metagame their way up the ranks and minmax every aspect of their life, because they obviously need hugs. Lots of them.

And you should pity those who think sociability has to trump effectiveness, because they were born losers and the wolves pack will pick them. One by one.

Styles come and go. Beliefs come and go. Everyone slides from the path eventually, but there's no escape from the hamster wheel. You can take pride in your running style for a brief while, but it won't last, and even if it does you're still stuck in the great wheel anyway.

So, friend, you should just pity yourself, because for all your pride, you're still Nuffle's bitch. He will humble the mighty and laugh at the weak, and forget your very existence by the time you close the client in tears of pain.

The one person that doesn't play enough here anymore talks the most sense......

But I'm afraid there's a very big 'Us' and 'them' Jan.

'Us' - play how u want and leave others to play as they would

'them' - Use multiple methods to try to coerce 'Us' to play as is more suited to the style of 'them'

Labelling any coach here is about the stupidest thing that goes on here.

I don't understand why we have to 'pity' anyone, surely we should be glad people are simply enjoying how they're playing?
Posted by JanMattys on 2011-02-28 16:45:04
I, for one, pity you.
:P

Also, spreading love is for wussies. Spreading hate is simpler, quicker, and more effective.

;-)

ps: your blog was excellent, Purp. But your unwillingness to appeal to the dark side of the human nature is your greatest weakness.

I'm often told I'm too nice.

But I'm a lover, not a hater. And I'm too self critical. Not dark enough. :(

I missed it was tounge in cheek. Mon bad. :)

I love my labels, but I love my Jan more! For him (and site harmony), I will give up being known as "The Supremely Awesome one".
