Posted by ettaexpress on 5/4/2014 10:45:00 PM (view original):I don't think personal insults are really necessary. But I guess that's message boards in 2014. Not just here but everywhere.
Yeah, that's why I've gotten paid essentially to communicate in basically every job I've had since graduation. Because I'm not very good at it.
Funny how it doesn't seem to be much of a problem outside HD. Maybe you all are just especially stupid, or maybe the egghead mentality that seems to be attracted to this game doesn't function very well when asked to think in a more abstract fashion.
In any event, as someone learning the game anew, I tend to agree that change can be a good thing but I also think consistency at each level theoretically makes sense. What attracted me to the game was the level of detail and other coaches who've told me to try it. I had no idea about the scholarship differences between d3 and d2. It seems like reasonable people can disagree about prioritization of changes. If the debate is about usage and getting more coaches, I think WIS could do a much better job marketing it. If it wasn't for word of mouth I wouldn't have known about it. I could be one of the stupid people though (not smart enough to be an egghead).
Yeah well I find it insulting that some jagoff tries to say I don't know how to communicate just because *he* missed something, and if he intends to project that to the message board community, in the absence of anyone protesting that their view is not represented by that statement, well then that conclusion must be extended to the community.
I agree that the marketing is poor, but that's not the only problem. Whatever. I wasn't really trying to make this into another thread about me, but someone always seems to make it personal when they have a problem with something I say, but no one gets upset until I respond...not realizing apparently that I'm not the one that went there.
