ABC 1-2-3

I just read this:

http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/GameOn/story?id=2819621&page=1

Right after I read Janine's comment, "this will NOT help your quest to find a girlfriend!!!" on my Warcraft post.

Part of why I write this blog is a sort of honest "This is who I am" writing style. I will write about things I am even ashamed about doing (Fights with Giant fans, unabashedly getting seats on the PATH).

I could sit here and write about some sort of Phony Sean that doesn't really exist. I could get very creative and try to portray someone who isn't real. Or maybe creatively edit out things that I haven't done. I'd hazard that most of what I am is written into this site, warts and all, and i'm not looking for any sort of validation. I do like constructive comments. I don't really need people to tell me that my site sucks - if you don't like it, don't read it. Go someplace else.

But then again, when I read an article from abc news, I know that I am hitting the pulse of what is going on. I know that more people are gaming. I know that it is becoming more mainstream. 15 years ago if you said, "I love fantasy movies, like The Hobbit." - everyone would shun & ridicule you. Today, how many people do you know that loved "Lords of the Ring". Yes, i'm well aware of the VAST differences of the two movies. My point is that with technology and creativity it is making things that were once "uncool" to "cool". Before the .com boom anyone who worked on computers were laughed at. Now they are the new CEO's.

Sorry to people like Janine who think i'm on some sort of "quest" to find a girlfriend. I'm not. I'm a firm believer that a girlfriend doesn't make you happier. I'm very happy by myself. If, perchance, I meet someone - great. But I certainly expect that they would love me for who I am - gamer and all - rather than a false facade of who I am not.

i posted a detailed response in the warcraft post, but just to sum up, I don't know you, so when I say "quest to find gf", it is not a judgement, it's logical conclusion from your posts here. You're right, if I don't enjoy reading certain posts, then I shouldn't bother. But the same philosophy can be applied to you, if you don't like hearing the feedback, then don't have a public blog exposing your inner thoughts.

Sort of falls under the "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."

One of the first posts I wrote detailed that I will remove posts or posters that get under my skin. This is a public blog, but I have no real interest in being judged by people who don't know me.
