Okay, no one around here knows me...however, I have something to say. Seeing as how some 9th grade punk can rant about his ex and yadda yadda yadda, I fell that I can speak my 2 cents as well...so deal with it. If you wish not to read this, dont be stupid and complain to your favorite web master or Starcraft hero...I doubt that they will care, all you simply need to do is press the back button or go on.
First, some information about myself. My boyfriend has been playing Starcraft for a long while, even before we met. After being with him, I started to become aquatinted with the whole Starcraft community. I was pretty much okay with everything at first, nothing really seemed amiss. However, as of late, I find that the constant bickering, nagging, pouting, and all around childish behavior has gotten way out of hand. I understand that most of the Starcraft players are of a young age, however, if they feel the need to take on tasks like news reporting and maintaining major web sites, they need to grow up. Arguing and picking on certain individuals is 5th grade behavior. If you all wish to have A+ news reporters then you should start giving News Reporting 101 classes before they begin. How is one to learn the tricks of the trade if they are not given constructive criticism or sessions of individual help? If you come up with the excuse that you are "just too busy", then you have no business complaining about anything. Just go on with your busy life. It seems unnecessary to complain if no one has offered help or simply questioned those who they have a problem with.
I know that youre probably tired of my ranting, or thinking that Im just a "stupid chick"...however, I think that this was a needed rant and has purpose. Now Id just like to comment on some of the stupidity of some of these reporters...I just read Aherdofturtles, from Starcraft World, post about his ex-girlfriends sisters breasts and strategies using cheat codes. Okay, Im no Starcraft master or anything...but if youre using a cheat code why do you need a strategy?? Come on now. If youre cheating youre bound to win no matter what you do. Hence the term "cheating". It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure that out. Now, as for his ex-girlfriend. It was quite disrespectful to refer to his ex-girlfriends sisters breasts as "boobs" and why in the hell is he even talking about that on a Starcraft web site? Thats like me, being a girlfriend of a Starcraft player, wanting to post about my boyfriends genital size. Theres just no place for that on a web site designated for games. Second of all, if he wants to sob over his oh so terrible life, why doesnt he go cry to Mommy?
As if this isnt enough about Aherdofturtles...I have more to say. I would hope that all of you male Starcraft players dont judge your girlfriends finest qualities on her knowledge of your favorite computer game. Just because some chick plays Starcraft doesnt mean that shes the next Katie Holmes. I think that it was both disrespectful and stupid to post about such an issue in the fashion that he did. Im sure that the Starcraft Gals want to be seen as equals, not sex icons. They might even be able to kick your asses at the game...you never know.
Well, thats about it...I know, I know, it was long. However, I never said that any of you had to read it. So there you have it...there are my 2 cents. Deal with it or go on with your petty lives.
