Don't ask, You Don't Really Care...

     The nature of this entry is not actually a question, but a statement. Although it is most certainly possable that what I am about to say could very well be opinionated, I do believe that it serves purpose beyond something greater than my own meanderings.

     I see many posts on the forums asking what question like

"Do you think AOC (Age of Conan) will fail?"

"Do you think WAR (Warhammer Online) will be the WOW (World of Warcraft) killer?"

"Do you think DF (Dark Fall Online) is real or just vaporware?"

"What class will you be?"

etc...

     Let me ask you a question or two and then I'll tell you what I think.

     Do you really care what I think or are you just putting something up there just to have something to say so you can feel important for a moment? I can't seem to rmember the last time an OP (Origional Poster) emailed me back and said "Thanks for telling me what you think, your insight has been invaluable."

     Why do you really care what people think? Well, you don't, if you did, you would stop posting as many people have probably asked before.

     Now that said, I'll tell you what I think. I think I have heard for the last two months, just about everything there is to be said about AOC. It's old, it's tired, and just plain worn Out. Now it's starting with WAR and a few others. Stop it?  Stop asking people what they think, you don't really care and most of the elder posters will tell you that such meaningless questions are not only a waste of reader's time, but hold no real value to understanding any more about a game that you can learn from FAQs, newletters, oficcial posts, and dev interaction.

     If you really want to interact with the community and gain some insight or share your opinions, then chose a subject that gives the game meaning, ask questions that affect readers, and always have constitution to your posts. Otherwise, people will see you for nothing more than a wind blowing troll with the need to be a self recognized overposter.

Everyone who posts those threads won't even read this, they are kids who have no understanding on the subject or the MMO itself.  It will go on constantly because on the net they can get some attention that they can't in real life.  It sucks I know but I have been here long enough to not even notice the junk.  With each new over hyped MMO you will be seeing this crap.  It is already starting with Aion and most people don't even know who NCSoft is...sad day in the MMO world.  Sad day indeed.

Why do you care what they do or do not care about? ;)

Just messin.  I see what you are tryin to say, but by saying it, aren't you doing almost what you are "accusing" them of doing?  Or is it different since it is a "Blog" and not a "Forum thread?"
