PvPlease

I've long hated PvP or player killing, PKing, whatever you call it, in online games. I've got enough to worry about without some dick trying to kill me, when he probably has better things to do in the game.

So, stupid me joins a PvP server in WoW, since that's where a bunch of my friends were. I told them, if I had someone being a total twink, I would quit the server, delete the character, and go elsewhere, where the only thing trying to kil me is the computer. Mostly. =P

So, today, I just wanna get a quest done, and I end up having to run through enemy territory. I avoid pretty much everyone, and most people have, as I figured, better things to do with their gaming experience.

Except for one asshat.

I can deal with a lone kill. That's understandable. Have fun, kill a guy, move along. This toerag waited for me to ressurect at my body, then would promptly kill me again.

And again.

And again.

Wash, rinse, repeat seven more times.

That's just lame, and pathetic. I wasn't even REMOTELY a threat to the guy, and after the first kill, when you come back, you're not at full health or mana, so it's even more lame.

If I wasn't level 20, I'd go restart elsewhere. Still very, very, very tempted though.

For anyone reading actually IN World of WarCraft...if you have a character on the Ner'Zhul server, and see a troll hunter named Whiteoak? Kill it. Kill it very dead. Repeatedly. And tell them Solusandra sent you. =D

Bam!

Sounds pretty much spot on.


You are nurturing, kind, and lucky.
Like mother nature, you want to help everyone.
You are good at keeping secrets and tend to be secretive.

A seeker of harmony, you are a natural peacemaker.
You are good natured and people enjoy your company.
You put people at ease and make them feel at home with you.

Or, y'know, parents could actually parent...

Grrrrr. (Argh.)

LOS ANGELES - Today, the Parents Television Council (PTC), the nation’s most influential advocacy organization protecting children against sex, violence and profanity in entertainment, filed an indecency complaint with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) about the Fox Network television program, The Inside, which aired an episode with themes of forced sodomy and S&M fetishes to prime time viewing audiences. The PTC, on behalf of its over one million members nationwide, has asked the FCC to issue a Notice of Apparent Liability against each Fox affiliate that aired the program.

The episode that contained the indecent material originally aired at 9:00 p.m. Eastern and Pacific and 8:00 p.m. Central on June 15, 2005. The episode included graphic discussions about the characters’ sexual practices, scenes of a man and woman engaged in S&M role playing, gory images of dismembered and mutilated bodies, and a strongly implied male rape. This program was seen in homes across the country on the Fox Network, and in Washington DC, the program aired on WTTG-TV. According to Nielsen Media Research, at least half a million children viewed the episode.

“Graphic scenes of forced sodomy and S&M fetishes are not appropriate for family audiences, and Fox should know better. This episode will fill young minds with horrific images and warped views about sexuality and human relationships, said L. Brent Bozell, president of the PTC.

“This is yet another prime example of why Congress needs to pass the Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act, because with the threat of higher fines for indecent content, millions of children could be spared from viewing sexually graphic shows like The Inside because the consequences would hopefully cause Fox to think twice before airing such content.”
