Hater Watch: Day 2
Well, that was fun. I appear to have poked a sleeping Balrog with the sharp stick of my wit, and now he’s awake and angry and thirsty for the blood of n00bs, LOL! Thank you for all your comments, constructive and otherwise – it was particularly nice talking with you, Anonymous.
In response to this whole thing, Joystiq has added a little “please don’t be mean” comment to their post, which was a thoughtful thing to do. Sure they were a little snarky about this video in their original post, but not really mean-spirited in my opinion – they at least recognize the earnest=awesome dynamic. Anyway you certainly can’t blame them for all the crazy hate comments. The whole thing is just weird. I hope that I didn’t make it worse by attracting more attention to it.
And now, back to business…
