Wow. Speaking of butthurt, let's break this down.
It's astonishing how everyone becomes Mr. (or Mrs.) Caring when something bad happens to a country they like, have an interest in, or are in some small way connected to (that connection being something like playing FFXIV, not something bigger like being born there). How many thousands of people die DAILY in Africa? There are no “omg I'm so heartbroken for the people of Africa” posts on here every day are there? Does Africa just not qualify for being part of your prayers and thoughts because it's been happening for so long? Maybe it's because they aren't as technologically advanced as Japan is. Or maybe it's because you just don't care.
Or maybe it's because there aren't currently any significant natural disasters in Africa. Or are you supposing that it should be any other nation's job to get involved in your own political infighting? No offense, but if you want freedom, and are willing to fight for it, by all means do so. America fought that war. Twice.
And how many thousands of people die in any
given country daily? Oh, except that Africa isn't actually a country, is it? It's a group of countries. Well, in that case, you might as well tack on the number of deaths in Canada, and the upper part of Mexico as well. Let's compare notes on that.
Or is it that you are suggesting that Americans aren't doing (and by "doing", I mean "spending") enough to cure diseases that are pandemic to Africa? Americans can't even seem to balance their budget, but it's good to know that there you stand, ready to tell them what to spend the money they don't have on. Really relieved here.
Long story short, step up or shut up, little 1-post sock. There's a world of difference between a climate where deaths have been allowed to happen, and a climate induced by a natural ******* disaster. You cheapen the lives lost with your drivel. But let's move on, shall we?
To everyone getting upset over people concerned about the state of their game first and Japan second... At least they aren't being hypocrites.
Oh, you must mean ViKtoricus. Who apparently doesn't miss a trick when it comes to aggrandizing himself and/or his POS website, or his virtually (see what I did there?) worthless opinions. I can only assume you mean him, since everyone else
posting in these forums are either bleeding tears for the poor folk in Japan, or bashing countries they perceive as not acting strong/fast enough to suit their opinions.
Yes what happened in Japan was a tragedy. What's happening in Africa is also a tragedy. Until you people start making daily posts and topics about how they are in your prayers too you just come off as an annoying weaboo
Yeah. You are right. But welcome to http://ffxiv.zam.com.
Africa isn't really a major concern. Unless it's in an upcoming patch.
Honestly, it was bound to happen some day and I'm sure everyone knew it. When you build cities near one of the most active fault lines in the world what do you expect might happen? The same was said about New Orleans after Katrina hit. I'm not saying it to be a prick, I'm just stating facts.
Actually, with all due respect (read: none) little 1-post-wonder, I'm reasonably sure that the people in New Orleans weren't ******** about living near a fault line. Having spent some time there, I'm pretty sure they were probably ******** out hurricanes. And giving them the finger.
The amount of butthurt this post is going to make will be astronomical, so before it gets sub-defaulted I hope at least someone gets a chance to rethink how much they feel its necessary to publicly mourn
Thanks, but I think we'll mourn as much as we please, pray as much as we please, and critique as much as we please....
...because here on ZAM, we self-moderate. Douche.
