>Personally, I don't understand the point of namefagging. No one cares about you, and it just starts contention.
It's actually pretty simple, google up something called "the greater internet dickwad theory". It goes like this:
Perfectly normal person + Audience + Anonymity = TOTAL DICKWAD
I've been using the same name for two years now. I started using it because I wanted to have a real direct conversation with other named people in a homebrewing thread. I kept using it because I realized that having a name made me automatically stop myself from posting stupid shit and acting like a dick to other people. And you know what? It works. I post less and lurk more because I automatically filter out all the dumb shit I'm tempted to say, and when I do make the effort to post I try to be as helpful as possible.
Yes you can argue that it's too easy to use names and trips in an offensive way. But I would counter THAT by saying if it didn't piss you off no one would do it! Learn to give no fucks, its a highly valuable skill.>>22759821>Dr. Robotnik as a Heretek
I'm... strangely okay with this.
Also I just learned that Volition was bought by Koch Media in the THQ sale. What does that mean? Well Volition was responsible for Freespace 2 and Koch Media published the X series of space sim games.
And now the Volition creative team has been quoted as "willing to commit murder to make Freespace 3"
