    No, what's truly unfortunate is that you have no idea the amount of effort someone with degraded motor skills has to make to "play better," and totally fail to appreciate the emotional impact appearing to be dumped back to a previous level had on me. I took it as an insult, and responded in kind. I still think it was an insult, but I'm willing to be convinced it was unintentional. Given that no one in this thread but Garbad seems to have a clue why I reacted as I did makes me lean towards that.

    OK. Change Super Unicum to Red and Average to Purple if the color has no meaning. I'll apologize publicly when you do. Until then I'll have to assume the color red assigned to average was meant to demean. Edit: Garbad gets it. You don't?

    Never - you can assign whatever label you like. The fact is that for years, the color RED has been associated with BAD. Not average. you can call it average all you like, but the fact remains the players see red, and think BAD. Only the elitist pricks see average as bad. So yes, I'm very much having an emotional reaction See ya. Won't be back. This place just proved it was for the elitists, and NOT for anyone trying to improve.

    I've spent a lot of time and effort overcoming my early noobishness, essential tremor and age slowed reactions to get out of a color bracket that is regarded as BAD. Now that I'm on the verge of moving up to a bracket that's regarded as "OK," the goalposts get moved and I'm back to BAD. My improvements represent a lot of fucking hard work for me and the shift feels like that hard work was belittled and treated as unimportant. Yeah I know I'm still improving, but emotionally it feels like "Fuck you." So fuck you too.

    All that work getting out of red, and you move the goalposts. Fuck you too.

    Why the use of the word "Poast" on the forums?

    y u heff 2 b so mad? As with anything, it depends on the context. Sometimes it's a good way to be humorous, as when you're obviously capable of coherent English. it's also a way to convey accents and dialect in speech patterns. Y'all know wut I mean, Vern? By the time you get my age, you'll hopefully realize that silliness is essential to sanity. If not, you're gonna be more tangled up than a ball of yarn after the kittens are done with it.
  9. Confusion will be my epitaph, as I crawl a cracked and broken path. If we make it, we can all sit back and laugh. But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.

  10. I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult.

    Gotta ask. Is this thread about improving the wiki, or arguing about a polarizing personality in the WoT community? If it's the latter, please move it to a more appropriate section so I won't expect it to contain anything useful.
  12. This will be of fine service for you, you bag of the scum. I am sure you will not mind that I remove your manhoods and leave them out on the dessert flour for your aunts to eat.!

  13. Men are more sentimental than women. It blurs their thinking.
