[Event] IV @ Videogame Nation

Postby __ROB_D__ » Sat May 09, 2009 3:48 pm

Hi guys,

I'm planning on come listen to your talk at Videogame Nation in Manchester.

I'm wondering if you've any more details i.e. what time you'll be speaking?

Looking forward to seeing you there,

No offence, of course, but who the hell are you and how did you survive a year making only 2 posts? :P

Do you even read what you post?

Rob, I don't have any more info, maybe some other forum member can help you.
Let us know how the talk went. :)

Do you even know that saying 'hell' is not inherently 'offensive'?

That's beside the point really, I think Phelanpt is talking about the attitude, which may not be really 'offensive' but certainly isn't very welcoming either.

I'm hoping you're asking this because you want to learn from him. You should try not to make an inane post with every alternate breath for a while, see how that goes for you.

Although I find NeatNit to be an unlikable person in general -- and I think you concur with me on that point -- you seem, almost intentionally, to fail to notice the 'sarcasm cues' he is giving you (see the word "survive" which isn't appropriate in an 'offensive context' and the smiley). Not liking a person is one thing, but turning around everything that particular person says in his or her face is elite-group-sustaining at best, and plain cowardish at worst.

Try to use a little more tact in your next attempt at bickering please.

I'm pretty sure I got his sarcasm right - that does not take away the fact that I think he should stop making such senseless replies and hence I think turning this particular comment right around against him is a perfectly valid tactic. I'd like to see if you can find many other posts where I turned around his own words, since I sure can't remember many (none, in fact, but by that I mean explicit examples - I'm sure I did it some times). I'm not leading a crusade against NeatNit to the degree of what xander sometimes does or what I did against Cyan, so don't misinterpret my posts as flames or crucifixions. :P

EDIT: Weirdest typo evar. o_O

Tell me what the typo was, and I'll limit my posts to umm... 1 a day. For 2 weeks.

One night later, I can't remember what it was. I'm serious.

Yep, it was about the attitude. Sarcasm or not, his post is not very welcoming.

Does he need welcoming? I mean, he's been here for almost a year...

Er, whatever. Sorry I guess.

I have no clue where the inspiration came from, but I just invented the word NeatZit. How about that one? :P
