Ziua 1,871, 20:58 Publicat în USA Canada de Thedillpickl



Hi kids!

No pics, no music, don't even need page breaks for this one.

Mazzy is a friend of mine. That does not mean someone I've friended in game with a click. Not someone I've interacted with in eRep, that I'm trying to suck up to or wanting her to suck up to me. I would consider Mazzy, what was called back in the day, a pen pal. That is someone you never actually meet in person but that you correspond with and get to know intimately. Someone that you care about their well being and are concerned about their life situation. That said, I'm pissed in RL at those who gave her shit today because she would not say bad things about John Jay.

The whole John Jay is an ass hole issue aside, what f'ing sense does it make to bully someone into saying something they don't want to say? Hmm...? I suppose Henry and Inwegen would say that if she can't take it then get out. OK, fine. So everyone that wants to bully their way around the eRep landscape is right and I'm wrong. I'm fine with that, I don't have to be right. To each his own. Play your game and I'll play mine. I play a game to have fun and interact with people. If winning the game is your only motivation then I'm a perpetual loser. I don't want to win if there's no fun in it for me.

I RP the political shit because it is about the only thing left of the game. I've built my companies. I could be some oldfag 2-clicker that buys gold to get energy bars and pokes the fight button all day. Boring. I could (and possibly should) hole up in my MU and sit back to watch the eWorld go by. I could trim my friends list down to 100 people and not be bothered by shouts in languages that I don't even recognize. Why do I participate? For one thing I enjoy helping people. When I'm asked to help I do. Simple. When I stop caring that's the time to leave.

To prevent a WoT that will leave your eyes bleeding I will wrap this up.

I'm not talking about others who've been bullied in the past. When this has happened to other friends I've been just as indignant as now and have spoken my mind. It's not my job to speak out every time someone is misused by a bully. It is my job to speak up to defend my friends. Shame on the rest of you if you do not get angry and speak up to defend your friends.

OK, the rant is over. Tell me how big of an asshole I am and then continue yer f'ing game.

Proud to be a loser right next to you.

It's time for this crap to stop.

Some of the folks who play this game have a very NARROW emotional range.

Responding to circumstances such as disappointment and fear by always getting fretfully angry is not healthy.

But oh well, tomorrow's another day in the New World.

For a man who's only spoken to me once... it's amazing that you insinuate anything about my emotional range.

Like now... I'm angry.

"Some of the folks who play this game have a very NARROW emotional range."

Gnilly, I've always liked you, You're not so much RP'ing as you are letting your real personality into the game. At least that's my opinion. We don't always agree but I fail to see the need to.

I just want to point out that I have an extremely narrow emotional range when dealing with certain people IRL and here. Goes from curmudgeon to pissed off in about 2 seconds when I'm provoked.

Glad to see you going to Mazzy Cat's defense. She's not the first to be bullied by those twats and she won't be the last. Now if they would just have the metaphorical crap beaten out of them every time they bullied somebody, no matter who they were, that would be dandy.

Not 100% weasel, maybe he'll be good enough to expand his thought. Don't pay much attention to me, this has my ass jacked up about as high as it will go.

You know weasel2 - I really don't know. BUT when an article is written because of the crappy treatment of me.... and a person makes a comment like "Some of the folks who play this game have a very NARROW emotional range." It pretty much comes across as.. that person has a NARROW emotional range.

Exactly what is that Gnilraps? I'm sure I have all the emotions a normal person has. In fact I'm pretty sure I have far more than some of the twats that play this game.

@Wesel2
I agree with you, mate. I also thought his comment was aimed at others. Oh well, lets see if he comes and explains it.

Voted for truth; it is sickening to see the same old tactics used against rising, respectable ePoliticians such as Mazzy whom deserve better irrespective of their stance regarding any member of the community.

@Pickl, points very well taken regarding 2-clicking hermits...

I'm proud to join the company of losers - some of the people I admire most in game, including Dill and Cotarius.

Standing proud in the losers' lineup!

its the only thing that makes since when you consider his words of "disappointment" and "fear". JJ being the disappointing, and phieffer and wiggy fearing that our votes will be split.

that's what i got out of it anyway.

And I have known the eyes already, known them all --
The eyes that fix you in a formulated phrase,
And when I am formulated, sprawling on a pin,
When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall,
Then how should I begin
To spit out all the butt-ends of my days and ways?

For me, it's the relationships and awesome people that keep me in this game. Compared to the people that I met and adore, I could care less about the game and everything else in it.

I can't remember playing eRepublik to "win", but I'm always playing for the people.

I always thought 'winning eRepublik' meant walking away peacefully because your work is done. If you can leave the game without regrets or in a fit of rage, you are the winner.

I don't know how else you'd define it. Medals are like meh.

Who is Mazzy, and how did Pfeiffer get the blame for whatever happened?

Thedillpickl
Thedillpickl Ziua 1,872, 10:41

Mazzy is the one from WTP that didn't copy/paste the party's response to JJ's fubar.
http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/january-3-2187011/1/20
This prompted Henry and Inwegen to call her vulgar names and to badger her because she didn't instantly call JJ a traitor. For the record I didn't instantly freak out either. People have had RL catastrophes before and they also make mistakes. After doing some digging it was obvious that this case was the latter. Fortunately for all concerned JJ corrected his mistake.

Nonetheless, I'm not "blaming" Henry for anything. I'm calling him out on f'ing BS. Trolling is one thing but to actively harass Mazzy is on par with Ajay's tactics. I will stand by my friends and MU mates no matter what the cost. I'll also deal my shit in public and not hide in PM's. Hence this article.

Yep Dell. Henry & co. showed his/their ass by harassing my MU mate with nasty PM's and IRC trolls. They call a good worker and all around nice gal a cunt because she wouldn't dump on John Jay without talking to him about the PotUS race.

SColbert
SColbert Ziua 1,872, 16:03

I've had the pleasure of knowing Mazzy almost my entire eRep career, and can say without a doubt that she is an amazing woman. We have had our arguments, but I have always respected her, specifically because of her individuality and great moral code. I know I can count her among some of my closest friends on this game.

If someone has a problem with Mazzy not wanting to comment on the JJ issue, maybe they should consider how she is feeling about it.

Stay strong Mazzy.

Chucky Norris
Chucky Norris Ziua 1,872, 17:35

Dill why are you even complaining?

For the past few elections we've had citizen who've magicly changed and started acting like teamates and branding everything they we're doing as in the name of unity. They have been endorsed as unity candidate, not because they wanted to win, but because they felt obliged toward the nation to sacrifice themself to the position.

And they never went back to their old ways of trolling, hanging firmly to this concept of unity!

It happened like that right?

jver1207 Ziua 1,872, 19:02

You are well respected!!!

btw - I'm f'in proud to be a looser!!

Thedillpickl
Thedillpickl Ziua 1,872, 20:40

Chucky you miss my point entirely. You must not take the title of this article literally. "About Politics" is sarcasm. This incident has absolutely nothing to do with politics, unity or the f'in eUnited States. Henry and Inwegen jumped Mazzy because she would not say the things that they wanted her to say about John Jay. She wanted to give him a chance to explain himself. They attempted to manipulate her in PM's and on IRC. When she didn't back down they resulted to name calling and other harassment in an attempt to break her. Not the same as trolling to elicit a response but bullying. You and I are above being bullied. Tactics like that have little affect on us. Some people have a lower BS level so I took it upon myself to call Henry on this. I'll not sit by and say nothing while a good friend is maligned and pushed out of a browser game.
