Actually I'm in for over $3200. As I've said before, I've spent far more over a weekend in Vegas. Spent twice that on modifications to my current BMW on just a few upgrades. If I tallied up all the money I've spent on fast cars I'd say it's somewhere near 40k right now, and that's only on the upgrades, none of that is for the purchase price of the car.
If it's ok with you I'll continue to spend money on my hobbies that are important to me. If I have it to spend/waste then what business is it of yours to say how I spend it?
Right. But then who are you to tell people that have red flags going up in their heads from past experiences over and over, that they are terrible miserable people that just want to see people fail? To me you go to the extreme on your end as well when you see fit.
To me reading at Blue's there are just a very few that are totally negative to the game and many things here. However the largest group to me seems to be the "fool me once crowd" however if asked they would be very happy to see the game a success. We comment on the news because that is what we do here, that is the MO for the site. Blue lines up, we knock up down, see what passes "the smell test". Then there is final group that takes offense for people speaking out against "their game". We have plenty of positive hands on comments, it seems the one's that work the best are just say it, what about it and let it stand on it's own. When you have to start defending it to the Xth level, that is where it goes south.
This game is fighting a series of sayings we've all learned over generations. "if it seems to good to be true", "sucker born every minute". You see that is what you get when you promise the world, people question that, "been there done it" (yes another saying, they just all fit), but secretly at worst they hope it can be delivered. Until then we "still haven't found what were looking for".
So go spend your $3200, if you got the jack where $3200 is simply discretionary spending, god bless yah. The only thing I'd fantasize about there is exactly how much money would I have to have to drop $3200 on virtual game stuff, but again each their own. Your spending $3200 to me equals no more and probably less than another person who's spent zero, as I have to weight your pro-game position with all that skin you have in it.
