To be fair, it's mostly Alcarin digging up said dead horse(this thread's beginnings), then trotting it around with a few kicks to the hind end, calling it, 'not as bad as it seemed,' and then trying to bury it again. I probably wouldn't've posted, if not for being brought up personally in all but name. All I did was maybe try and give said dead horse a few brief, kind words before patting the gravedirt, and maybe putting the shovel away in the shed. In the beginning, I already gave my opinions with a caveat; a grain of salt, if you will. Then I discovered the shaker'd been hefted up, and upended all over my salty opinions. Probably a bit needlessly, I felt. Let my previous posts be seen as the forum equivalent of telling someone 'when.'Matt wrote: Not talking about you bud. Talking about the guys that haven't played in a long while getting on the forums and beating a dead horse.
I don't troll people unless I can actively experience their reactions, and that's usually reserved for dear friends of mine. I'm not trolling. What is trolling--what literally -is- trolling, as in trawling-for-reactions trolling, etymogically speaking--is mentioning someone by name, or generally addressing them/their ideas, and then acting surprised when they respond. I think that's pretty well established. In short; don't call me out and I probably won't feel overly-inclined to address it. I feel that's pretty reasonable, and not particularly trolling. If someone decides to publicly say something, it's open for discourse.
