How To Express An Opinion Without Being A Dick II
Posted by Amber Teasdale in Stuff and Things on December 2, 2009
Dear Children Masquerading As Raiders And Even Officers In My Guild,
Can you grow the fuck up? Look, I realize that So and So has an opinion you don’t agree with. I realize that he has all the tact of a 16 year old in the middle of an emo fit with his parents sometimes. But that doesn’t mean that you have carte blanche to turn around and act 5, instead. You can damn well put your epeens away and cut out the snide remarks. It doesn’t help, and it doesn’t make you look better, nevermind right. And when two of you are officers and in the middle of a raid, you really have no fucking excuse.
God damn, people.
Maybe said person needs to be removed from the guild, maybe he just causes too much strife because we’re not a good fit for him but, damn. Again, not permission to act like children yourselves. You can take your dodge/parry/stam stacking bloodshed somewhere else, and not during raid time.

Raiding With Your SO and Not Killing Them
Posted by Amber Teasdale in Stuff and Things on October 20, 2009
…can be really hard.
I really wanted to punt Josh last night, which is a hilarious image if you consider the fact that I’m 5’9 and 125 lbs at most and he’s 6’10 and 280. I could maybe get him to move a couple of inches if I ran into him going full tilt, but I don’t think I can punt him.
Look, kidlets, if you raid with your significant other you have to remember that what you do in a raid isn’t just affecting 9 or 24 strangers. It’s affecting 8 or 23 people and the person you have the warm fuzzies for. This means that if you’re aggravating people by standing far down the hall because you tabbed out to read something else and everyone is waiting on you to buff, your other half may very well be thinking of slapping you and unlike everyone else they can actually do it.
In any case, why the hell is it a-ok to aggravate said strangers, anyway? If you’re in a raid then FOR FUCK’S SAKE RAID OR LEAVE.
I won’t even touch the “officers should set an example” aspect of it.
Besides, if people know that you’re a couple and you’re not responding, guess who people are going to pester? Yep! Your SO! Who the hell doesn’t want to act like your mother? …yup, same answer!
…this is why Josh should not be allowed to bring home new toys on raid nights. He wants to play with the toy, rather than raid.
PAY ATTENTION OMG.
