I didn't feel i had real harsh decks....heck never played counters,land destruction or anything to harsh....I was a part of this community on and off  since 2004 years...i was just on magic to have fun,,,,i didnt care if i won or lost...but when you intentionally jerk with a person just to prove whatever point it is your trying to prove thats when you take the game a lil to seriously....i don't care if they flag this or whatever...i am going to speak my mind and be done with it....this was a waste of time for me....gave my collection away and uninstalled magic which will never be installed again because of people and their power trips....and i was only back for two months.....people take this game way to seriously and ruin it for others.....peace out

Without anything specific to go on I can only say sorry that you had a bad experience, but I think basing your decisions about how to enjoy your time on someone else's behavior is a bad precedent to start. Next thing you know you will be moving to the woods and never showing your face in public...slippery slope and all. Hope you change your mind when you realize how much fun the game is and come back to become readdicted.

OP is shirly still interested in this thread.

Oh, wait ... 

Guess what? Chicken butt.

OP is shirl(e)y still interested in this thread.

Oh, wait ... 



Shirley the OP is still interested....and don't call him shirley.


Sorry, but my all time favorite movie line...ever.


Also, I agree with cretonic1.  If you quit you let the jerks win.     
yea it lets them win but i have been jerked around a lil too much throughout the years from these individuals....so you know i'm not going to play their little games and waste my time....i don't jerk with individuals intentionally.....and i will not end up in the mountains you have no idea about my personal life Telir

I certainly hope not, Starr. I think you can find many types of individuals in this game just as in any competitive game. You can block the truly irritating so they don't join your games and you can collect those whose games you enjoy via the buddies list and you can advertise for friendlier less rude players. If you do it in a way that doesn't sound like "kick me!" I suspect you will find great success and fun in the game.

These people don't know you either Starr, so it isn't personal even if their rudeness/decks/style upset you. I was trying to say, get past that and don't run from what is essentially only a problem if you make it one. If worse comes to worse, if you feel someone is harrassing you it is perfectly legitimate (and hopefully helpful to others harrassed by them, past and future) for you to report the behavior and let the very competant ORCS handle the rest.

thanks for the support i got...i wish everyone the best and have fun gaming.......but i'm done checking this thread........have a good one i've got bigger fish to catch like writing a book....take care and be safe
Good luck Starr70.   Come back and let us know when you are published.

/me wonders how if Starr can't deal with interw3b buttf0rz*, he will handle editors?




*You ask what  r buttf0rz?  For sitting** on, silly.

Thank you, Erik.

It's probable they have more going on than the people that bother to comment on the pointlessness of it all. Just sayin'...Sealed
I can't spare a moment for the dog faced boy I won't lend another hand to the worm girl of Hanoi Don't deplete my oxygen for the guy who's turning blue But ask me, and I'll do anything for you
Its like the people you come across in sealed tournys and drafts who start with the insults when they lose. Because clearly the reason they keep losing isn't because of their skill or cards, its because everyone they play is a lucksack with no skill (or at least less than theirs) who draws the perfect cards.

You know every time they play.

I had a sealed recently where I was accused of the above, and then found out they did the same thing to their first round opponent too, I was like, seriously? You have nothing better to do with your time?
Let's all start posting in bold so ibleedblue seems less pretentious. He's worth it.
Free Speech
Free speech is the right to speak your mind without government censorship and without fear of extralegal retaliation like harassment or violence. That’s all! Free speech doesn’t include the right to speak your mind on any forum anywhere. The government may not prevent you from speaking, but private parties, like blog owners or corporations, aren’t required to let you use their property as your platform. Free speech doesn’t include the right to be believed or to be taken seriously. People may mock, ridicule or laugh at what you say, or they may reject it outright. Free speech doesn’t include the right to be listened to. People who don’t desire to hear your opinion can hang up on you, block you on social media, change the channel, close the browser tab. Free speech doesn’t give you the right to bombard people with harassing messages or otherwise force them to pay attention to you against their will. And free speech doesn’t include the right to suffer no consequences whatsoever for your expressed opinions.

What about bold blue instead?
MAybe it's a form of protest like when I was posting in this yucky color of green.
Thank you, Erik.
I had no idea the green meant you were protesting. I just thought it looked pretty and I wanted to do it too, but didn't want to be a copy cat.

Yes blue is better. I am pretty sure you guys are making fun of me. So saying I have less going for me because I post about someone going crazy on the net and then you post about my post? Ok. But yeah go ahead and drill me into the ground I can handle it. I just say what I honestly feel when I run across post. I am not on your guys level of vocabulary so dumb it down a bit so at least I can understand how you are making fun of me.  Laughing  I guess I will be the "official nuisance of MTG forums"

I think Nushae was remarking on the fact that you posted all your previous remarks in bold? That's my take on it.

I have no idea i just like the bold because its sticks out. Either way I still like the community and all the people in it. Everyone has helped me out a lot to enjoy magic better and that is all that counts really.

Always posting in bold kinda defeats the point of having it, so I would encourage you not to do that. But nush should have been more... tactful in relaying that point.
