It's time we had a little talk. It's time you and I sat down and took a good look at you, how you conduct yourself online, how you represent yourself, and how you treat other people you come across. What I am going to say will often be hurtful, but it is for your own good. Your parents did a shitty fucking job, and I am left to pick up the pieces.
I don't care if you take drugs. Knock yourself out. While I don't take drugs (anymore), I am in no position to tell you what to do with your life. I should tell you, however, that talking about drugs online makes you look like a goddamn moron. First of all, you are playing a videogame with people that are as young as ten years old- you might want to be a bit more responsible. Second, you are playing a videogame with people who understand just how childish and stupid drug culture is. Look, taking drugs is fun and all- embracing that juvenile drug culture is fucking pathetic.
You aren't tough. You can't kick my ass in real life. Stop talking like a tough guy. This is a fantasy role playing game. You are not going to fight me, you are not going to shoot me. You are going to sit on your couch and play a videogame. Drop the fucking macho act. You sound like an idiot.
You aren't very smart. You can't spell, and your vocabulary is atrocious. Some tips: "Alot" is actually "A lot." And, people do things 'well,' and things are 'good.' An example: "You play PSO very well. You are good at it." This is called grammar, and some of you might want to look into it. Finally, you may want to expand your vocabulary beyond rapper slang and profanity. It will go miles toward helping you convey your undoubtedly very interesting ideas.
You are incredibly insenstive. Things that are unpleasant to you are not 'gay.' Gay means happy, or homosexual. Homosexuality is not a bad thing. Insulting people and things by calling them gay (or ghey, Mr. Clever) exposes you as either ignorant or insensitive. You didn't mean anything by it? Okay, then stop fucking saying it! Oh, I only say this because I am gay and you have hurt my feelings? Good one, very creative. I am not gay, I just feel I should tell you idiots how stupid you look. Don't like gay people? Get the fuck off this site and go away, you close minded fuck. And another thing- jap is derogatory (that means bad) slang for Japanese people. Stop saying that word.
You have no fucking manners. Stop begging people for free shit. Look for yourself.
You aren't very creative. Your name is Cloud/Sephiroth/Aeris/DBZ***/etc. You need to expand your horizons and find a name that is uncommon. This will help you to stand out. This will also distinguish you as a thoughtful PSO player. You also might want to shy away from naming your character some clever spelling of a bad word. Sure, you had to think a bit to get around the censor. But do you really want to name your character that? Can't you come up with something a little better? Spend like, maybe, 30 seconds on it. Who knows what you will come up with?
You are in a clan. You feel that by joining this clan, you will gain status and acceptance. People join another clan for this reason, but they spell that clan's name with a 'k.' People also join fraternities for this reason. A clan? Are you serious? Are you that insecure? Is it so bad to just have friends that you play online with?
You are just fucking mean. You used to PK people and steal from them. You are trying to figure out ways to dupe and cheat at PSO so that you can ruin it for people. If you had a NOL code, you would use it. Sonic Team made a genre changing game uniting players across the world and you show up and fucking ruin it for people. Were you abused as a child? Did the kids at school pick on you? Are you misunderstood? Have you seen The Crow 100 times? Seriously, your little vigilante shit just ruins a good time for other people. These people did nothing to you. They just want to have fun. You, the cyber bully, take pleasure in being mean to total strangers. This is a sign of a serious mental disfunction on your part. You need fucking therapy. If you enjoy being mean to others for no reason at all you need to seek professional help.
I know the truth hurts. But remember, I only say these things because I care. I want you to be good. I want you to see the error of your ways. I want you to have respect for yourself and others. I want you to think, even if it is for the first time in your life. This game provides you with an opportunity to remake yourself, to pretend to be someone else. Do you really want to keep behaving the way you do?
