WHY ARE PEOPLE SO FREAKING RUDE?!?! ( Sarcasm obviously) but seriously! Opinions people! And missed Facts! Attacking intelligence for what a person believes in? Or the movie they are in Just because of their beliefs?

1. [+348, -34] : Military life will past by quick for males, don’t worry about your popularity  

2. [+177, -10] : He wishes to enlist quietly, his agency even release that statement to the press.  But those selfish fans disregard his request and went there anyway.  Looking at the pictures, just imagine how much he had suffered from sasaeng fans.  

3. [+76, -10] : Thank you for making me so happy all these years.  Enlist well and hope I can see you again.

I write because I love writing, which means I write for myself. I post my stories on my AFF because I want to know whether people like them or not, thus I’d like to know their thoughts by reading their comments. So I don’t think wanting people to leave comments for your stories is totally wrong, since of course we want our stories to be appreciated by our readers. Isn’t that the point why you post your stories on AFF?

I had a message today asking what the moving background image was, that you see outside of almost all the windows in the first Bioshock. I always wondered the same thing. One day while exploring outside of one of the levels, i came across the first picture. Essentially what you see is a TGA texture file, that wraps around the area you play in. It seems the Rapture you run around in, is inclosed inside a big globe (skybox) of Rapture. The next two pics try to show how it appears to move. Theres an invisible panel, for lack of a better word, over the windows that distorts the image as you look through it, giving the illusion of being underwater. It does the same thing if youre outside looking in. If you look closely in these two shots, you can see that im right on the panel. Part of the image is normal, the other is messed up. The final picture is the actual texture file itself.

There is also an increasingly accepted fallacy, a cousin to “don’t read the comments”, if you will, that it’s just “how the Internet is.” That abuse against historically marginalized groups should be accepted, because, hey, everybody is abused equally here (a categorically untrue assessment, but there are many who genuinely believe it.) That in order to earn the right to use the internet one must first bathe in the fires of sexism, racism, or misogyny and come out unscathed, because “that’s how the Internet is” and to brave the Internet is to implicitly accept this agreement. To challenge it is to deny the Internet’s Internet-ness, its infallible status quo.

I also often get variations on this comment: “I’m glad you have such a thick skin and have learned to deal with it. But I couldn’t do that.” They are always from girls. Always.

That is a problem.
