Op Ed

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Why The Problem With Diablo Isn’t Diablo.
We have to demand a standard of quality and dedication from these things. If we try to paint complaints about Diablo III’s loudly reverberating server-side-down bellyflop as entirely immature, wrong, and entitled, we’re basically saying, “Look, everyone else! We’re totally OK with this.” I mean, Diablo III’s almost assuredly sold millions of units by this point. If widespread rage then proves relatively short-lived, I have to imagine that looks like pretty much all upside to, say, Tim Willits or even devs/pubs whose intentions aren’t quite so benevolent or design-focused. Piggy banks are happy, and customers are happy. What more do you need?

Unconscious is what you mean. Subconscious isn't really a thing, just a common misnomer by the layperson which usually shows how little one actually knows on the subject.

no i mean subconscious, especially to bait asshole know-it-alls like yourself

your pretentious posturing doesnt indicate knowledge of psychology, and furthermore your arguments display a basic lack of logical reasoning ability in favor of being "the winner" by advancing flawed straw-man postulations

go ahead and enjoy your self-imagined superior understanding of this topic, you have my permission

But please, if you did indeed mean subconcious, define the term since there really isn't an accepted definition (unless its used as it's popular misconception.)
I didn't disagree with anything you said, Beyond me disputing that subconscious isn't a real term, and is usually used to indicate the unconcious by someone (as you yourself did.)
You can deny it all you want, but these are facts. You may consider it pretentious, but you saying subconscious isn't doing you any favors in what might otherwise be a good point. You can consider me saying that someone using the term subconscious makes them look dumb as strawman, but I would say when anyone would uses a word inappropriately, it makes them look foolish.
