I'm looking at the challenge page right now. The fact that not only is the disclaimer in a small grey font against a dark blue background for low visibility, but is also preceded by "Please select the correct answer to each of the following: " to fool anyone who does start reading it into believing that it's inconsequential, makes someone either very devious or very evil and I'm not all that sure which. Considering that I'm not sure it was there when I took the test either, well...

And Starfyre, you got 9 in the test. One point below me. Someone 'with an attention span equal to a 3-year old baby trapped in Toys-R-Us'. I rest my case.

Oh, now you want to go comparing points to excuse your inability to read instructions?

Holy jesus.....

...and I bet you used Google anyway, so why the hell should I care if you have one more point than me. Am I supposed to feel inferior now?

By the way, I said that to make it clear that *all* it takes to solve the type-in answers in the correct fashion is reading the instructions given. And if you feel injured by what I said, then, well, perhaps because you didn't read right / all of it.

But that's not my fault, now is it?

I'm pretty sure I missed 14 by two capitalized answers...

Oh, so crappy interface design is going to be a part of this challenge ein? Thanks for the warning, for a second I thought you were going to be all proffessional about it and stuff.

Silly me.

[edit]
I have an idea- why don't you write all the instructions in l33t from now on, just to see if you can catch some idiots who are too disgusted by your lack of style to continue?

Just a suggestion.

Thanks, I didn't think of that... I was going to keep doing it despite the fact that I don't want to. It never occurred to me to stop playing...

Oh, wait. Yes it did. Because it's not that bad. I'm just trying to make a point. And I appreciate the way you were able to once again demonstrate your high level of proffessionalism and reply in a way more mature than my juvenile, sarcastic remarks... Sigh...

@Dexter:

Probably when the challenge is over.

Or you could just look up the answers on Google...

Starfyre - I wasn't 'excusing my inability to read instructions' - I was returning your insult. You may have intended to make your view clear through the use of sarcasm, but it came across (at least to me) as insulting the attention spans of everyone who misread/didn't see the instructions. Now I see you didn't intend it that way, I'm happy to let the matter drop. I apologise if it's my fault - all I can ask is that the flame war dies.

BTW - I didn't use Google (more fun to work them out yourself)

And I agree with Adriac in that the challenge itself has been pretty good so far - I'm just angry at the allocation of points. I also realise that this anger is doomed, and will proceed to take it out on some nameless, faceless guards in Perfect Dark. Mmm... PD...
