Quote:
At the same time, there is the much more unsettling opposite idea of the domination of my screen persona over my "real" self. Our social identity, the person we assume to be in our social intercourse, is already a "mask" that involves the repression of our inadmissible impulses. But it is precisely in the conditions of "just playing" - when the rules regulating our "real life" exchanges are temporarily suspended - that we can permit ourselves to display these repressed attitudes. Take the proverbial impotent shy person who, while participating in a cyberspace interactive game, adopts the identity of an irresistible seducer or sadistic murderer. It is all too simple to say that this identity is just an imaginary escape from real-life impotence. The point is rather that, since he knows that the cyberspace interactive game is "just a game," he can "show his true self" and do things he would never have done in real-life interactions. In the guise of a fiction, the truth about himself is articulated. The fact that I perceive my virtual self-image as mere play thus allows me to suspend the usual hindrances which prevent me from realising my "dark half" in real life. My electronic id is given wing.

Do you even understand what Napoleon Complex means?

BoBwins Law: As a discussion/war between two large nullsec entities grows longer, the probability of one comparing the other to BoB aproaches near certainty.

Isn't it where your brain tells you to wear one of those big hats and conquer Italy even though its socially unacceptable to do so?

Now, more than ever, we need a dislike button.

"Wikipedia" wrote:
Napoleon complex is an informal term describing an alleged type of psychological phenomenon which is said to exist in persons, usually men, of short stature. It is characterized by overly-aggressive or domineering social behaviour, and carries the implication that such behaviour is compensatory for the subjects' stature. The term is also used more generally to describe people who are driven by a perceived handicap to overcompensate in other aspects of their lives. Other names for the term include Napoleon syndrome and Short Man syndrome.

So... everyone in EVE?

The OP will of course, have found the source for that quote, the newspaper article which it originates from, and totally not assumed that Grrrrr Gewns wrote it

Google Napoleon Complex and imagine a 180o of that. Anyway, Goons are to EvE as sharks are to the ocean. Without the sharks the other fish become lazy and complacent, therefore, they get bored. The end. Arrow

Why do people always compare dear leader with the wrong dictator in these grr goons threads?

I would have thought the facial fuzz was a bit of a hint, at the very least.

DBRB could possibly be napoleon though.

no, we need someone who enjoys grinding down structures, has a story to tell and loses large numbers of men. Perhaps a WW1 general.

General Melchett from Blackadder goes Forth?, or his real life equivalent Field Marshal Douglas Haig?

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

It's on purpose, a simple but sometimes effective way to incite answers from other people.

A Grr Goon (short Grroon) Thread wants to be groomed, fed, pampered all in good faith ofc, always the lofty goal in mind to one day become a real indecipherable wall of text, maybe even a real threadnaught. Therefore all simple and easy to apply methods of generating posts are favourable.

But, oh cruel world! Little does the aspiring Grroon know that his real fate is to be forgotten, dead and burried neckdeep in threads that would suck up all of mankinds IQ if they were ever to be read again.

But worry not, Grroons do not truly die, it shall reincarnate soon after it's untimely demise, like a hybrid of a phoenix and a fly it will reincarnate from his own pile of smelly, scorched up dung into the flames of a new existence.

Hopefully I wont accidentally click on that new abomination and/or post in there out of sheer boredom...

Stupidity should be a bannable offense.

You will always click because you simply cannot resist the need to see the bitter and twisted posting of people who feel the need to post walls of text in an attempt to look like they are talking about more than grr goons.

Posting in a Grrrr Goons thread, a bad one, but still a Grrr Goons thread.



Now, I'm no big city lawyer, but I honestly think GSF and their Dear Leader are amazing for the health of EvE online. Regardless of what else The Mittani does/says, he creates content, content so awesome that its made the BBC news site front page on more that one occasion.
This brings in new players, new players mean more subs, more subs means more dev time for the game we all love.

Keep doing what you do Goons!
