This is the last thing I will say on this topic. Doing the right thing does not make you a martyr because your life is not forfeit for your actions. It makes you a decent person, nothing more, nothing less. It means doing what is right simply because it is right, and for no other reason. Not because people will praise you for it. Not because you stand to gain from it. What makes a person good or bad is the decision to do what is right when you KNOW no one is watching and the only thing you stand to gain is integrity. You ARE bad people plain, pure and simple. That you would behave so base over something as trivial as a video game reveals the total depth of your character... and it is a shallow pool you wade in.
I do a lot of good in real life, and FFXIV is my only vice. I'm sure you have much worse vices you don't tell anyone about. I paid and continue to pay my dues. Karma bit me yesterday and I wanted to punch the guy at my ISP who toggled the on/off switch on my cable internet. Took me 2 hours to log back in. Then I logged out last night for server maintenance, and tried to log back in a few times before work to find out that I can't update the NA/EU server list. I would have significantly less fervor if an afk boot was implemented. I am hoping for that. If not, people will take advantage of the situation. Do you consider that Obama was bad becuase he was forced to use superpacs to win the election? He did not want to, vehemantly opposed the Supreme Court's ruling that they be implemented. But in the end he was forced to use them. If he didn't he would not have won the election, because Mitt Romney was using Superpacs religiously.
I only have a limited time to play because I have a family... If I spend that time trying to log in, its like a little of me dies inside. But my statement was that we are not
martyrs, as in we are not
trying to die for this cause.
