I am sick to death of people who think they're game design experts or know "the industry" inside-and-out because they watched Sequelitis once. It's like those people who think they're some sort of political operator with the inside scoop because they glanced at the front cover of National Enquirer while checking out at Wal-Mart.

Oh, and if I see one more video thumbnail with a featureless cartoon avatar pointing at some totally unremarkable thing from the 90's and saying HUHHHH!? WHAAAAA? WHADJUAFUHHHH@?!??@? I am going to into YouTube's central servers with a crowbar and probably never coming out. Doubly so if, instead of a cartoon avatar, it's some mid-20s nobody with a douchey beard facepalming at some random game that was recently announced/released.

It will continue to happen until somebody explains what the possible harm of necroposting is.

Do you know that feeling when you have an argument, and then you move on, and then somebody brings it up again several days later when the argument is dead and buried

Yeah, that

Or when you've exhausted a topic and moved on and then some guy thinks he has something to add but he doesn't

That too

Or the build up of negative energy, which is like literally entropy and the antithesis of life and existence, in the material plane and how it literally leeches life energy away

Especially that

I doubt this is literal, plus I’m not sure what you mean by “negative energy”

As for Internet things that annoy me, I can’t think of any at the moment

Nowadays, I've noticed a trend of forced, false positivity in many communities. The kind of "We are a FRIENDLY community of FRIENDLY HUGS ^_^ so you can't discuss [enormous list of innocuous topics] and if you disagree you're evil" stuff.

Inevitably, these places are the most hateful and spiteful things I've seen online, because the rules effectively prevent people from excluding toxic users, harmful attention seekers and just general twats. They build up until normal users are fed up and leave, and you're just left with a bunch of weridos echoing their own severely deranged opinions back to themselves.

It was all perfectly tolerable, but I've seen people with this attitude leaking into some of the communities I visit, causing much derailment. I guess you can say I hate the habit of echo chambering.

It's a reference to D&D metaphysics (now outdated since the 4th edition) where "Negative Energy" from the "Negative Energy Plane" was what fueled undead creations and such.

I was wondering whether I count as one of those wannabe experts, but then I remembered that I have a bachelor's degree in game development. :P (from here btw) (as well as a general degree in comp. sci from years ago). So while I don't claim know the game industry inside out, or claim to be a game expert design, I'm kinda thinking I have a few ideas about how things work, at least more than someone who watched a TV show about it once. Why am I not working in the field however? Shitty wages, poor job security, long hours, bad workplace culture.

Ha! You got a degree in comp.sci, but I got one in rec.humor.funny

Who's laughing now!?!

(Ok, you probably are, because the closest to what I said may be usenet://sci.comp-aided but I don't stick to your rules, and it's not a .m so you can't tell me what to do!)
