    Feel like complaining? Getting annoyed? Want somewhere to vent?

    Here's the place to vent all your anger.

    • You may not quote ANYONE.
    • You may not respond to anyone.
    • You may not post things that break any WildStar Central rules.
    • You may not turn this into a target war, specifically aimed at a guild/person.
    • You may not want to post if you feel like you can't keep to these rules.
    • You will now eat a piece of cake.

    What really grinds my gears:

    • People who act like WoW was the first MMORG. No, just no!
    • Ignorant people who like wasting words trying to prove how someones OPINION is wrong. (Highfive Rane.)
    • People who think they are superior in any way, shape or form.
    • Bullies.
    • Taxes.
    • Bills.
    • People who cheat, lie and steal.
    • When I run out of cake...
    • When you overthink things so much that it practicaly tortures you.
    • You!!! Nahh just kidding.

    I reserve all rights to remove posts that are deemable as rule breaking.

    <Mod Fab> Some of you may be saying, hey now, a Mod can't post this. Yes, I can. I just did.
    I am an average person, I have opinions, I have ideas. Being a Mod will not effect that. We get annoyed too :cry: </Mod Fab>

    This idea was brought to you by myself and Rane.

    Oh and when people are like "smoking will kill you, ya know" yes, I know, I wasn't raised in a box. Thanks for the new info.

    - People who can't <REDACTED>ing signal when they change lanes!
    - Why is it every overly macho kid has to walk like their that have the biggest package ever? If you actually did you wouldn't need to be a punk.
    - People who use 'gay' for something that is bad and call someone a '<REDACTED>' when they do something bad. I am gay and those words were used when people like me were being beaten. Makes me want to punch them in the face.
    - Clowns. God I hate clowns. (Unless its a Chua clown, then it just makes sense.)

    • People who only speak to hear themselves talk. People who only engage in conversation to push their own personal agenda, with no regard for whether or not anyone wants to hear it or if it's even relevant to the situation at hand.
    • Similarly, people who argue for the sake of arguing.
    • People who are so obsessed with impressing others that they are not only addicted to self-promotion, but have actually begun to believe their own hype.
    • Conversely, people with so little self-regard that they need to practically be shouted at before they even think of standing up for themselves.
    • The fact that we live in a world where the people who talk the loudest often have the least to say, while the people who see the most often say the least.
    • Variables and unknowns. Factors outside my understanding are outside my control.
    • Factors outside my control.
    • The knowledge that I am a meaningless speck of dirt in the face of the cosmos, powerless to stem the tide of decay that floods and consumes all things.
    • The fact that, despite my best efforts, I still care about <REDACTED> like that, and listening to one friend's troubles for an evening makes me wish I could change the world.

    • This darn heat wave. Go away. It gets me cranky.
    • People who assume everyone's opinion will be the same as theirs and tell others they're objectively wrong if they so much as breathe a hint about such.
      • Likewise, people who don't understand that freedom of expression applies also to the right to tell someone their opinion is really darn dumb. (They're still allowed to have it, though.)
      • The expression "Politically correct". It's just being used as a way to try to shut people up these days -- mostly by people who fail to grasp the previous point.
    • What was said about people using the word 'gay' as an insult. Or really anyone acting like they're in their lower teens and throwing insults and stuff around because ~the internet~ and anonymity.
    • People who think being educated and using logic is stupid.
      • Sub-point: People who assume those who have not been educated are automatically not intelligent.
    • Those throwing pointless words around as if though it meant something in discussions. "wow clone" comes to mind. What does that even mean these days, what with every new mmo being accused of being one? You try designing something that doesn't bear any elements to what came before and see how that turns out. Hmph.
    • Me feeling quite hungry.
    ... actually, that's a good point. *goes off to cook some food*
    (Hope chiming in on the 'gay' word isn't considered quoting.)

    What really grinds my gears is...
    1) Not being in beta (just like everyone else not in beta).
    2) The fine print on absolutely everything... I mean c'mon I can't grocery shop without reading every sale like a lawyer looking for a loophole.
    3) Humidity, makes a nice 80 degree day terrible and nothing but Air Conditioning can fix it.
    4) The fact that I can't think of anything else right now... I'll be back.

    The IT trade in general. Just getting sick of it. Clients drive up the wall, through the ceiling and right into a madhouse.

    Need their PC fixed ASAP, so urgently I need to put in several hours of over-time to get it done. Come the next day "Oh I'm being held up at a meeting, can I come fetch it in a day or two?" Yeah, real effing urgent.

    Somehow it's my fault if they haven't done backups for months and now with the hard-drive failure they lost all of it.

    Or when they want me to falsify a damage report so they can claim from insurance, and when I refuse I'm the scum of the earth

    "My PC hasn't been working correctly since you last worked on it. It's your fault so I refuse to pay" - last time I worked on your PC all I did was set up your printer. 6 months ago

    me: "Are you sure it's plugged in?"
    client: "Yes I'm not an idiot."
    *Goes out to the client, PC isn't plugged in. Plug it in, PC works fine*
    client: "You can't seriously want to bill me for that? It didn't even take you 5min?"

    And I'm really sorry your printer does not support the new Windows, but I don't write the software. Getting pissed at me won't change that. Go talk to HP/Samsung/Canon/etc and let them know how much they suck.

    Oh and i just want throw in a "**** you Telkom!" as well. Nearly the entire ADSL infrastructure belongs to them (only wireless companies can go around them) and their service SUCKS BALLS. BIG HAIRY SWEATY BALLS. If I had $1 for every time I've had to go to a client after Telkom denied that a ADSL issue is caused by something on their side and not by the client, and it turns out the issue IS on their side, I'd be a rich man


    *deep breath*

    OK, I'm done.
    No... wait....


    OK, now I'm done

    Is that multiple people got the same profile picture and I stupidly make the mistake of keep thinking they are the same person.....(yup it's my own fault :p and I hate keep falling for it...)

    And the people that just go with the ''male'' ''female'' ''?'' signs as profile picture.....I've got a pretty good visual memory but it just screws things up :D

    And necroing!
