Well, this seems interesting. By the way, hello everyone. I'm WXYZ, and I'm here to fuck shit up. (In all seriousness, I just joined this forum.) A link to this little thread was posted in the forum that I primarily use, and after reading the entirety of this thread, I felt so compelled as to register and join this forum and make a post (of course, this isn't the only purpose of making the account, but I'll explain that later).
The situation in this thread is very clear to me. It started as opinions on the video some of the TGH staff made and ended in a frustrated individual and a self-righteous agitator trading blows. As I went through this thread, it seemed to me that the comments made by everyone were very well mannered, regardless of which side they were coming from, or how they expressed their points, or lack thereof. That is, with the exception of Max.
I'm looking through the thread as I'm writing this post, and I see some truly superb posts made by KnasterMaster, Kakeh and Crono, in which they express a topic, their opinion, and supporting reasons all in one post. However, when I look at all of he posts made by Max, I see the exact same structure, and effectively the same post several times. I can paraphrase it pretty easily:
"[MY OPINION, STATED AS FACT, WITH NO LEGITIMATE SUPPORTING REASONS RELATED TO MY OPINION; REFUTAL OF ALL OTHER STATEMENTS]"
At this point I would like to point out the fact that I am in no way attacking your opinion Max. I am assaulting your means of communication/presentation of it, if I would even call it that. You are more or less repeatedly making the same point without using any formal support, and collaterally insulting anyone who doesn't agree. This isn't even trolling. You are forcing your opinions upon those who are trying to have a polite discussion about the video made, and the related topics.
To give some information as to where I'm coming from in this argument, I have neither the PS3 nor the Xbo360. I own a Wii, but never play it. I have friends who both own both consoles, which has given me the opportunity to have an extensive experience with both platforms.
I also have a friend who is a hacker. I have another friend who was
I know how that shit works.
Furthermore, I happen to be one of the few who actually read the terms and services of some of the product I buy, so I can have an understanding of what I'm getting my hands on and into. It's brutally obvious to me that a lot of people don't. Especially now.
Coming back to the conduct of the subject matter of this post, I am disappointed. From the moment you threw a sideways insult at Nosebleed I knew the feud was destined for an ugly ending. If you were actually trying to have a legitimate argument, which I know for a motherfucking fact you weren't,
you wouldn't have said what you did. You wouldn't have changed the perception of the scenario by calling it a "faggy fucking console war"
and called him a twat. You were attacking your opponent
instead of following through with your argument
You are a fucking idiot. Ever person has a right to their opinion and to express it, but what you have done has shown me that some people just don't deserve it. Your complete disregard of the conventions of discussion
are completely and utterly disgusting. You sicken me.
On top of that, I'm now going to attack the flaws I see in your "arguments." Pfsh,
why the fuck am I even calling them that? They are miserable excuses for outbursts in the English language. It's quoting time Motherfuckers.
When you buy a PS3, you are also buying it's online services. If you are going to pay money for something, you should expect it to work (or at least not to fuck you over).
I'm sorry to break it to you, but that's a part of consumerism. Every time you purchase ANYTHING, you are making an investment, hoping that it will fulfill the purpose you intended when buying it. This is true with anything, from food to cleaning appliances. With the gaming market this is no different. If you even as much as look at the terms of service for any online game, it will say something to the effect of "This product is subject to change by the company making it. IT ISN'T PERFECT AND NEVER WILL BE." If the service goes down for a period of time, like it did with Xbox Live, then it happens. You can't get pissed off at the company for something like that. Sure, they screwed up for it, but it's part of the service. Now what's not part of the service is hacking.
Sony should have had stronger security and should have let us known before it was too late. The bottom line is that Sony is to blame in this situation.
The purpose of computer security to make it more difficult for a hacker to infiltrate the system.
Perfecting security if this kind is fighting an up-hill battle. As long as a computer is connected to another computer, it can be hacked.
Also, when a company is hacked, they are BEING ATTACKED. IN NO WAY WAS IT THEIR FAULT. Sony did not tell anyone to hack them an any
way, shape, or form. Hacking is a crime, because it is the invasion of privacy, and, in this situation, leads to the theft of confidential information. Hacking is almost like a natural disaster, and I meant that in no way to be a pun to the tsunamis that had occurred. This is even worse, actually, as a 200-foot wave of water doesn't have a brain, nor motives. Whoever hacked them was after the company for whatever reason it may be. I'm going to put this in nice big letters so that even if you skim through this entire post without reading it, which I have a powerful feeling you will, you will see this:SONY IS NOT TO BLAME
They really dropped the ball on this one.
You know what? Sony didn't drop the ball. You
did. And people like you.
It's people like you who will take the first opportunity you see to yell at something or someone that has a fatal flaw or an unlucky bout, and throw insults and comments in a futile attempt to make yourself feel better after your parents divorced because of the drug problem you had consumed the lives of people besides yourself, to compensate for small or mutilated genitalia that will never see the light of day due to a defect, to make you feel like something, when all you are is merely a cunt-chewing smegma-gargling cock-swallowing anus-dwelling too-ignorant-for-your-own-damn-good piece of fucking shit who will never have any sort of mild success in life because everyone can see how obscenely flawed of a person you are, and always will be, because you refuse to see the flaws of your thoughts and action.
If you are trolling, congratulations. Successful troll is successful.
Now get the fuck off of my internet so everyone can enjoy it again.
