EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

The Mittani should be covered in 300 pounds of metal. Made to wear huge earphones blasting Celine Dion and big glasses meant to blind him and give him headaches. He must also wear a red rubber nose and black caps over his teeth.

The more you try to "call out" The Mittani, the more you are going to encourage him.

I think I can assure you that the above doesn't sound like a bad thing at all compared to shifting through the badposting going on here. Now that, that is showing commitment!

In my experience, neither in real life nor on the Internet do the words immediately following "In other words," often reflect the accurate spirit and intent of the quoted person's words, and this is no exception.

I dare say the reason no one argues with Jenshae Chiroptera is because that forums user does not present arguments which may be reasonably debated. The lack of a gender specific pronoun is in no way meant to be sexist.

To be fair, this is a very low-content/low-effort thread.

You just copy and paste things? Maybe got yourself a bot to write your posts for you? Ugh

Aww, look at that. It always makes me happy when the oly thing left to retort with is correcting my spelling and grammar. You're cute!

Here's another one you'll likely claim is copy-and-pasted (as though it were at all relevant): you will gain no ground in an argument with me by presenting logical fallacies.

I do understand where the fear comes from when discussing the option of an active abstain button.

It could actually show there are more people against the circus called "CSM" than there are pro-CSM people. As such the "glorious" position of chairman or woman wouldn't be as shiney as some try to call out anymore.

I would think the fear would be on the part of CCP, because it would potentially reveal one of their big things to be a flop.

Or on the part of Mittens because then all of a sudden his gloating would be proven more as bloating.
