And no matter what happens, never let the shitty actions of shitty people make you a shitty person. Good 4 life.
Also pardon me while I take some time out of your busy matchmaking schedule to address some real shit and clear up a few things. I guess you could say I've been playing the game for some time now and I have a few insightful things I would like to share about my experiences. It's been a bumpy ride, and when I look back it isn't hard to see why. Sure there have been a few fumbles, some poor circumstances, and many variables (unmet expectations and desperate foolishness to name a few). However a large number of these factors have one common denominator: Miscommunication. When you think about how complicated and involved communication between two people really is, and then compare that to how we do things here, where you take your feelings, boil them down into ideas which are then broken down into words, then “txt” so that they can be converted into bits and pumped down the electronic pipeline; It's not hard to see why a persons words lack their intended meaning along with their emotion. They lack body language, tone, character, action, basically all the signs you would normally read to hear the words a person isn't saying. The kind of words that describe who a person really is, unlike their profile which only describes who they think they are. With that said, I find text based conversation pretty meaningless and I don't put much effort into talking to people I've never met in person. Now on the other hand, if you wanted to grab coffee with me sometime, I would put a lot more effort into that. Hell, I would shower, trim my beard, shave my neckline, put on the nice pants and I could go on... So if you get where I'm coming from, don't even bother reading the rest. Just shoot a message my way.
