Sometimes I forget about the small, pale population of Asian kids and introverted white boys whose life is made up 100% of Japanese gaming exist in the world. It’s easy to do, considering they don’t come out to see the daylight. After the debacle with that Xenophase plagiarism situation, naturally I posted the real link to my blog under Xenophase’s “Creative Writing” forum so that members could and would view the real original site. Xenophase is apparently a website that is basically a social networking site/forum for gamers. For those of you out there who have a sex life and don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s like MySpace, but for World of Warcraft. Yeah, it’s sexy. Apparently since my blog post did not include Pikachu, dragons, or guilds, the zitty gamers guild has joined forces (what few of them there are) to give me a nice wave of thumbs-down ratings on the ol’ Sheppard’s Pie post.
It’s fantastic. My blog traffic has tripled during the past two days. I guess these droids aren’t aware of it, but bad publicity is still good publicity. I mean, look at Justin Bieber. The kid has been called gay more times than Elton John at that Lady Gaga concert, and he’s a multimillionaire.
One particular user who dubbed himself “Promus” sent me a nice little message that read, quote,
“Please just stop posting. Everyone here hates you because you sent people here to make an accoutn just to piss people off. You think getting a -40 rating in one day means your welcome? Btw, you’re profile picture sort of looks like you have a cleft palate, which usually comes with some sort of brain deformity so I think we may just be picking on a handicap.”
This was “Promus”s photograph:
Naturally, I replied,
“Promus – ‘Everyone here hates me.’ You mean all 11 of you? Doesn’t look like you guys have much of an army. Thanks for driving all that traffic to my blog though. My ratings are through the roof today.
ps – Your picture kind of looks like you have bone knubs for arms and a tail. I guess you can’t judge a book by its cover.”
Promus replies yet again,
“My profile picture is a Cubone. My favourite pokemon. That comment was just really unfunny.”
Hahahahaha. Oh, nevermind then. Now it’s cool.
For further entertainment value, please read the commentary between Promus and I on my previous blog post, House(fly) Salad.
Anyway, I could not be happier about how this situation turned out. Keep it coming, Xenofags.
Peace out, girlscouts.
“F*ck you, Chuck! You’re extremely talented, but f*ck you.”
