    FingolfinGR, you are an idiot. Just to clarify, I had to stop reading posts in this thread 5 pages in, simply because I couldn't stand to view your stupidity any more. Everything you said Americans are uninformed on and ignorant of...I've seen on the news. I don't even watch the news regularly (once every 3 months at most, simply because I hate all the terror and bad vibes that American media needlessly spreads), and I've seen MANY references to all of those occurrances over the past few years. You are as uninformed about America as you say that we are about the rest of the world.

    P.S. - This is to everyone that has posted here...people will most certainly take your views more seriously if you PROOFREAD YOUR POSTS. I have seen some almost well thought out ideas that will go nowhere in anyone's perception simply because you couldn't be bothered to figure out where to put punctuation and capitalization. Here's a few hints...

    - The first word in a sentence is ALWAYS capitalized.
    - The pronoun "I" when use to refer to oneself is ALWAYS capitalized.
    - A sentence should ALWAYS end in some form of punctuation (period, question mark, etc.).

    PLEASE, people, for the love of whatever god you pray to, don't give the world any more excuses to say that Americans are stupid. They have too many already. I'm an American. You can all understand my posts, right? Proper grammar doesn't take that much effort, and it makes you look much more intelligent.

    My original statement: "The reason I won't pay a monthly fee to play a game is not because I'm against corporations being money hungry whores..."

    One of the few ignorant statements I've heard where there was proper grammar. But I must bash you nonetheless. Do you shop at hot topic? Cuz with a statement like that, you sound exactly like one of those goths hanging outside the arcades in my town, owned by "money hungry whores" smoking cigarettes made by "money hungry whores". Before you go bashing corporations, saying how anti-corporation you are, look at the tags on your clothes.

    If you listen closely you can hear me sigh every time I read your reply. After reading some of your previous replies to other posts, I thought you had at least a modicum of intelligence. How can you tell this sentence has proper grammar when you can't even deduce the meaning of it? I am most certainly NOT against corporations being money hungry whores; I think it is their inalienable right in a free market economy. I am very much "pro-corporation", and I said nothing in my statement to bash them. As for the rest of your nonsensical drivel, I will be lazy and reply with short answers so maybe you can understand them this time. I haven't hung out at an arcade in about 20 years, goths haven't been truly gothic in at least that long, and I smoke cigarettes ONLY because I love to smoke. I might have a problem checking the tags on my clothes, as most of them are faded to the point of being unreadable (from this you should gather that I prefer quality craftmanship to fashion).

    2) Monthly fees does not make a game bad. Yes yes, we all know how absolutely badass you are when you say that you are not willing to pay some money hungry company a fee to play a good game, because you'd rather be a badass anti-corporate rebel who likes to buy clothes at Hot Topic (owned by Gap), and smoke cigarettes (owned by companies that want to kill you so they can buy an oriental rug). Money is the motivation for almost all things human in this world. Can't afford to pay a fee? Get a job.
    The reason I won't pay a monthly fee to play a game is not because I'm against corporations being money hungry whores. My reason is this; call me old-fashioned, but if I bought the game, I already paid for it once. I see no reason to have to pay over and over again for something that I already own; you're not renting the software, you purchased it.

    i love this country so much i would give my life for it. my parents feel the same despite their roots. i believe in conservatism, a rightist. im against gay marriage, abortion, war protesters, liberals, and many more.

    point is that im as american as they ever can be. how about you??
    I was born and raised in Texas. I love this country so much that I might give my life to protect it IF that were even remotely required in this day and age (it's most definitely not). I believe gay people that choose to have a life together should have the same legal rights as others. I believe abortion is a blessing to those who are unable to care for a child or have been raped. I believe the war in Iraq was built on a foundation of lies, and that we SEVERELY overstepped our bounds in going there.

    Point is...I, too, am as American as you can be, and NO ONE should think that just because they have a particular set of beliefs, they represent this country as a whole. America is a diverse mixture of ideas and ideals, and the intolerance, dishonesty, and idiocy shown by the current administration is making this country's name look worse than it already is. Not everyone in America believes it's God's will that we rule the world, and not everyone from Texas is as stupid as our current president.
