Interesting tactic. First you agree with one of these "older men," then lament the fact your writing couldn't be accepted the same way. Build up some pity over your lack of fair treatment, then, when someone points out that you've never actually tried to express a deep, meaningful, well-worded thought -- and encourages you to give it a shot -- you flip-flop and say "oh I don't want to do that. why would I want to do that? you guys are losers!"

:roll: Yeah, like it's such a shame to be older and have good communication skills. And you wonder why people call you a troll. Well, shame on me for trying to encourage you to contribute to this wonderful community you seem to loathe, mysteriously, since you post here more often then these wretched older men.

I love how these forums can take the deaths of multiple people and turn it into a petty argument...

The "older" people always start most of the drama on these forums.

You guys should follow the rules more closely.

tee-hee. Ironic.

In all seriousness, it is good to glance over the rules. Who knows, maybe if fixit was treated with respect, we would not be in this situation that we are in now (I doubt it though).

Reason: Corrected name. Plus, it's not your topic. Doesn't work that way.

Diversions diversions everywhere, and not a drop of sense. Or not very much sense anyway. I would write a longer reply, but I've got to get out the door for a train.

Define it, then. Let's see how accurate you are. My bet is you're more likely to respond with some smart-assed remark and a bunch of "hehehe" with a smiley face.
so...
you insult
and then expect a respond to your question
a question that has absolutely no intention of seeking clarification or reparation...

uhu...
as i said
you posts demonstrate your moral code pretty well

A good reputation in a community older men that feel the need to try to confirm that they are more intelligent, and have better lifestyles than "kids" they only know through an internet game? Oh no, I'm devastated.
good point wrt long posts...

this is the only virtual-only community i participate in
all others involve some kind of in-person engagement...
your comment is interesting since i am getting older and am interested in cross-generational communication...
is there any other way that "older men" represent themselves other than the way you describe?

i have a lot of respect for certain players on the grid
they seem very mature and i have no idea what age they are...
elsewhere i once had a conversation with was in his fifties and he was in his early twenties...

(although this is ultimately related to "we're all going to die" ; )
i've started another thread here)

ill chip in here. im onbe of the middle aged(for this forum) ppl at 18. i find that the median age is somewhere between 18-25 on this forum, but i could be wrong.
Regardless i usually have deep respect for much of the older players (off the top of my head lucifer, wae, sine(forget how old you are but i see you as wise as many older ppl), 2020, manta&destiny, compguy, and luke(to an extent))
i usually think this way of them because of their actions either on the grid, irc or forums show they are good people with decent morals who usually dont troll (lucifer is an exception but he does it in taste most of the time, that or its aimed at luke which irdc :P).
Most have also had to put up with numerous hardships in the last few years, which i can relate heavily to.
there is really only one adult on here that i know of that i dont have a lot of respect for, because of their actions on this forum (but i wont get into that)(ps this person doesnt apply to most of the next paragraph)

In general the older crowd does not really start much drama, they usually only get involved with fights when they try to stop them. They usually post here in good taste and without nearly the amount of cursing that goes on from the younger people. They also tend to think before they post, something many ppl on here need to do A LOT more often.

I prefer playing arma with the older crowd because i can carry on intelligent conversations with them about topics that interest me (i.e. food, computer, programming and my new hobby photography(of food ofc :P) ) without the "lolzusuck at this""noob" etcetc...

You put forth a claim—an accusation, even. Now, back it up. You don't get off with a false feeling of self-righteousness when thus far you've only shown yourself to be a disingenuous hypocrite.

Essentially no different than a toady slapping his superior on the back and pointing, and every bit as craven.
