Is there a reason why you are so arrogant? No wonder people don't like this place. It's people like you.
Having given this considerable thought I believe that " vain " is a more accurate description of me. YMMV but YWBW.

Since yer new.......Darryl (ACTIONJICK) is one of the most congenial folks I've encountered online. Pretty sure he was using sarcasm bordering on critiquing himself rather than being rude. Your view may differ. But IMO Darryl is one of the "good guys" on the forums. There are some who are many times worse.....

Ok. If it's Bendizoid's definition of arrogant I will accept that too.
You walked into the forum like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror, as you watched yourself gavotte
And all the guys dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner and
You're so vain
You probably think this post is about you
You're so vain (you're so vain)
I bet you think this post is about you
Don't you don't you?
You had me several years ago when I was still quite naive
Well you said that we made such a pretty pair and that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee clouds in my coffee and
You're so vain

Well I hear you went up to Saratoga
And your horse naturally won
Then you flew your lear jet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun
Well you're where you should be all the time
And when you're not, you're with some underworld spy
Or the wife of a close friend wife of a close friend and
You're so vain

Thanks Sarge!
I have been known to rub some folks the wrong way with my attempts at " humor ". Came close to getting my ass kicked on occasion because of it. Live and learn. Post and you never know what will come of it.

Your NCO spidey sense was right on the money as I am one of the most self deprecating people you are likely to encounter.

Dude is approaching the system from a modern viewpoint. I am so old school it was a one room schoolhouse and sometimes forget that the paradigm has shifted.

Take care!

Would you like the reasons that I am so arrogant listed alphabetically, chronologically or in order of importance?

The point of my OP is that many modern players approach and enjoy the system more as collectors and enthusiasts than as actual gamers. That is fine by me. Wwbitd we were happy to have any new addition to the game that allowed us to play more. We played on the original Rogue boards and anyone who has any sense of aesthetics knows that they were atrocious. Whatever.

Imighthaveit I offer my apologies if you were offended by my original post.

Scott you know who I am and should know my attitude towards the game and those who play it or even have played it.


Btw the " mine were black " was a reference to the boots we wore in the Navy which were referred to as boondockers.
Imighthaveit is right, it is a lousy apology. A true apology doesn’t attack, it doesn’t evade, it doesn’t make excuses. A true apology comes from the heart with wisdom and understanding. I should know because I’m an expert. An apology is not necessary in the first place but maybe a simple “ I regret the perceived arrogance and will endeaver to seek humility.” would have worked.
Next time you want to apologize let me proof read it before publication.

Wise words. Hopefully the need to avail myself of your expertise will be infrequent.
