One of the things I do for fun occasionally is to record footage from the games I play; most recently World of Warcraft. It’s a bit of fun and something I can keep as a momento for later of some rather cool times that Meaghs and I have had together. In order to share this with others and as a good place to store the rather large video files, I use websites like YouTube, FileFront, and WarcraftMovies. One thing that has amazed me as part of this experience is the utterly crappy feedback that most idiots leave on these sites.
I got one particularly insightful comment this morning from a waste of breath on the WarcraftMovies site telling me how I shouldn’t make projects any more because what I do is crap. Soooo constructive. I PM’d the guy and asked him to send me links to his projects…but, ummm, oh yeah that’s right – in the 2 years he’s been a member of the site he’s contributed a total of 0 projects! Hahaha- nice one. That adds credibility to your responses when you’ve contributed absolutely nothing to the community but criticism.
