Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Right which is why I said 'basically'.

    But I think you have it backwards here. These attitudes are a reaction to the way they're treated, they're otherised which makes them close ranks. If the attitude of being less judgemental (in all sectors of life) was more common I doubt this would occur nearly as much. Just look at the overweight thread if you want to see an example of such. Or like any feminist blog ever.*

    I don't think being judgmental is the single worst and most unforgivable thing a human being can do, though. In fact, I think it's pretty way far down the list, below stuff like (for instance) calling people fags on XBL, or going out of the house caked in cat urine and food stains, or loudly discussing which underage X-Men character you wish you could fuck just as jacobkosh is entering the comic store with his girlfriend.

    If people don't want their group to be judged for that shit, they should call it out, not close ranks with the human waste.

    I mean seriously, Leitner. Would you be this cavalier about it if we were talking about one of the other groups I named, like cops? "They wouldn't protect the guys who shoot unarmed kids so much if people would just stop judging them for it!"

    i hope i never become a 'one thing in my life' person

    for a while my friends considered me 'the israeli' because i flew back whenever i could and did activism and stuff

    and now i've been shooting a lot so i'm 'the gun guy'

    but i like to think that i'm not just totally defined by a single one of my habits or proclivities

    part of the reason i try to cultivate a very unorthodox personal image is to avoid being known as the "_____ guy"

    i hate having a shtick

    it's lame

    i try to have many smaller shticks instead, and be sort of this enigmatically iconoclastic weirdo who is difficult to understand or pin down

    the air of mystery is sexy

    Parts can be valuable. Rarity of the parts can make them much more valuable. One of our tech support guys brought in a box of super old parts, one of which was a token ring ethernet card. We fired it up and the thing was working and I told him to put it up on E-bay because I knew he could get a couple of hundred bucks for it. He figured he'd get ten. The auction closed at eleven hundred dollars.

    Huh. I should try shifting my old Thinkpad that has a fried mainboard.

    Also pretty sure I have some old gear lying about that someone might have a use for

    has just suggested

    that being gay, and being a gamer, are the same thing

    and either a gay person chooses to be gay

    or gamers can't help but play games

    wow

    Prove that gaming is a choice.

    Seriously J not only are you a monumentally umpleasant person when you start uttering the nonsense that passes for philosophy in your mind (shame on whatever institution you graduated in, and shame on your tutors for creating such a monster), but your sense of humor, such as it is, is awful.

    you can choose to be out or not about being gay and you can choose to be out or not about playing videogames

    in this context same thing

    yes the social stigmas and societal constructs you're bottlenecked into for engaging in male on male sodomy and 4 player halo are precisely analogous

    In my experience? Pretty much.

    EDIT: Man of mystery or just a wierdo, Pony?

    You'd be surprised what value somethings have. If you have a working motherboard with an ISA slot you can make some pretty decent coin.

    it's nice that norway is so progressive

    here in america, people get killed for being gay

    gay people are discriminated against socially and harassed in the workplace

    gay people are left to fend for themselves in many socioeconomic arenas since marriage typically isn't permitted between gay people

    etc

    comparing it to playing videogames is an affront
