Because I used to play Everqueer... All I saw was salad-tossers and people from Montana.
Besides bad players, we had miscellaneous glitches in EQ, which deterred my experience from becoming mildly appeasing. I find not only bad players, but also ones whom are used to using ten acronyms in a sentence. However, it was quite the excitement to ruin their experience when I found the suckers.
I am not calling EQ players a geek, but the general populace was overrun with them. And I'm sure, at some point, the designers had though of them
and designed the game with them in mind.
