You have no idea how lucky we are here.

I'm pretty sure "whinging" is the Queen's English version on how to spell "Whining." We here in the US just did away with the superfluous "G" (just as we have with a number of words). Just look at the other differences: here in the US we say "among" whereas the Brits (and me) say "amongst", or we say "while", while the Brits say "whilst."

 

Seperated by a common language...

It's a damn shame that the Queen doesn't know how to spell "Whine". ::P:

What drives me nuts are the people that don't even seem to *try* to use punctuation or capitalization. you know like this...although somtimes they use...ellipses marks....when...i dunno...they think maybe they should put a pause in there somewhere but cant seem to remember whah...they mabey should have learned in third grade or so...or....where to do it...

 

AAARGH!!!

 

I can overlook a lot when it comes to occasional spelling and grammar goofs from otherwise intelligent-sounding posters, but the above kind of doofus is way off my toleration scale.

 

And then there's using apostrophe-S to make plurals, but I've ranted enough for now.

Okay, stumbled across this today, thought it would be appropriate to post it here

 

1. Are we all playing the same game? | 1/14/2005 10:31:30 AM PST         

 

 

I tell you what... it's a good thing these forums are here, or I would be entertaining the illusion that I enjoy this game. Boy, am I glad I have you guys to correct me on that issue. If it weren't for the people on these boards, I would never know that there are huge, game-breaking flaws with the game that should outrage me and cause me to spout off in violent tirades against the board moderators. I might be so foolish as to think that the game is fun. I would most certainly be unaware of my horrific class shortcomings, my pending disappointment with the end game, and the overpowering abilities of all classes save mine.

 

Last evening I joined my brother (who plays a 24 druid) for some adventuring in Shadowfang Keep. I had a quest to complete that involved a drop from there, and neither of us had been there before. After working our way through several rooms of level 20ish elite mobs, we came to a jail area, where three elites and a named elite awaited us. My brother managed to put one of them to sleep, my voidwalker tanked the named, I chain feared another one away, and my brother offtanked the last in bear form. When we had finally cleared the mobs, I had less than 20% of my health left, no mana, and my brother had less than 10% health. Now, at the time, I was exhilerated and believed to be enjoying myself quite a lot. It was only after visiting these boards that I realized that I was mistaken in my evaluation of my emotional state. As it turns out, what I was actually feeling was a tinge of jealousy over the fact that a 28 paladin and a 24 mage could have done it easier. Were it not for these boards, I would have simply gone on my merry way, oblivious to the horrors that are Blizzard's customer support, naming policy, class balance, PvP issues, patch methods, game vision, and billing processes.

 

So, to the entire active message board community, I give you my thanks. This greed-fueled, shortsighted, poorly-executed, overpriced, badly-supported, imbalanced, worthless piece of crap we call World of Warcraft MIGHT have continued on in my mind as the best game I've ever played...

 

...but thanks to you, that's fixed now.

A very fine reason to stay away from the WoW forums if ever there was one.
