Troll Racials are Overpowered came up with the Whiny Post Day. Whine? Moi? Oh, all right… if you insist….
I’m fairly new to this blogging thing and I feel I have long way to go before I can compare myself with some of the established blogs. I’ve been reading various blogs and nearly always I can find something in them which I think is good and I’m left wondering why I hadn’t thought of that. There is however only one blog I read regularly just for the pain factor. To read a blog that pisses me off so much it drives me nuts. It’s like picking a scab off a wound or bursting a spot, I know I should leave it well alone but I keep going back to it. The culprit is JM2C brought to us by the Oracle of all things, ‘Markco’. Now this is a Big Blog, its got a massive following and the content in general is very good. OK, so where is the whine?
My whine is how it is presented. I don’t think I have ever seen such an exercise in vanity, egotism and general epeen stroking. This was the one that pushed me over the edge. Despite the title the author comes across as someone who believes that you are second best, but perhaps if you work really hard you will one day almost be as good as him.
“It’s as if for Markco gold is not the goal. Excellence is the goal.” That is how I approach my life and the wow community has seen how that level of motivation can turn a crap site with 1 follower (Thunderion) into the juggernaut (to use Bigjimm’s verbage) it is today.
Seriously, Get A Fucking Grip! How can anyone type that about themself and not think, maybe they are overdoing the ego thing, just a tad here??? Want some recognition and a link from the ‘Juggernaut’? Just send an obsequious post and pose as part of the sycophantic circle and maybe, just maybe, if you have been really good you will be rewarded with recognition. Now, Assume the position……
Don’t forget kiddies, you can also buy Markco’s own gold making guide, that’s if you can find it between the host of adverts for other sites selling gold and peddling anything else he can make a cheap buck from. Between those, you have more references to “Me” than can possibly be healthy and get the impression our host loves every fucking last one of them!
Again, let me state the site has great content in the on subject gold making posts, but why is it surrounded and packaged with such a heap of crap. What it screams to me is a site about the cost of everything while knowing the value of nothing.
Here endeth my rant/whine and hopefuly normal service will resume shortly.
