I’m not often one to repost other articles, but this particular piece almost sounded like one of my rants, so I am compelled to share.
Go read this:
It’s not even the part about EVE that got my ranting juices flowing, though that is how it ended up in my Zite magazine. It’s the clear facts that so many of us agree with, especially as mature EVE players (we are mature, right?). I’m not going to paraphrase the article, as I would pretty much end up quoting the whole damn thing.
So, the highlights for me:
That particular mixture of naivety and self-absorption is the principle feature of an X-Factor generation, regularly flattered into thinking their views are of vital importance by cheap marketing initiatives… You are worth it, you beautiful snowflake.
People appear offended that anyone else has the temerity to exist on their internet.
Like these things, that demand is part of an unseemly wail of self-righteousness issuing from the feed-me-more generation, unabashed by its over-consumption and tutored by the media in narcissism.
So yeah, nothing more for me to say than has already been said, snowflake.
