Just a warning and I'm not pointing fingers (Well Actually I am). Please don't email Randy Milholland about anything to do with Shadowrun or Dumpshock. Randy doesn't visit this forum and sending him an email asking if he's X or Y or Z is just going to incur his wrath and your public humilation......

You've been warned....Yang Gu.....aka Emo Samurai......

Emailing Randy about Shadowrun is like sticking your finger up an Aligator's hind side....Your just going to make him angry..... You've been warned.

He's a visible public figure, and random emails are an occupational hazard.

Reading that email, I suspect "shadowrun" and "dumpshock" had very little to do with the response it got. Or is there some prior antagonism here? I seem to remember him liking Shadowrun.

Randy like SR.....He has a morbid love/hate relationship with his fans....That email was a random email sent to him.....He posts "random" emails that annoy the smeg out of him.

Randy + Shadowrun = good
Randy + Shadowrun + Fans = bad

The moral of the story is "Don't be a dumbass or you'll get stung". That's all I'm saying.....

Some his Wicca hatemail was made into desktop wallpaper.......

No, I really think the equation is just Randy + Emo = bad. I mean, think about how Randy presents himself—do you really think he'd react positively to someone calling themselves "emo samurai" no matter what the subject matter? Not to mention the fact that he gave permission for Randy to be whoever he wants on a message board, except for two people who would be totally unfamiliar to any non-member—it's obviously a joke when read with a calm mind, but I could see how someone with an already-negative reaction in progress might see it as stupidity.

I do love the irony of posters on a webcomic board calling posters on an RPG board stupid and lame. Reminds me of a Pot & Kettle getting in a flame war.

We're lame? :frown: My world is crumbling.
Hmmm, it's either that, or I need more coffee. It's hard to tell the difference sometimes.

That was a laugh. Apparently we're the pit (or I guess cesspool) of shadowrun.

Still, have y'all seen emo's subsequent flooding of comments on Randy's lj? errr... yeah.

I don't think many of us who have an lj would want you to find it. ;)

Ultimately the comments are not so much Randy's. Gamers of all types can be annoying. God knows I know. I personally know Randy and we always kid him about how freaky his fans are. (We have alot of the same friends back in TX....) So yes the fan comments are akin to a Prostitute telling you to be celibate.

I think the point of his posting is, "Hey Emo Samurai: Don't be a dumbass....." That's the ultimate "point" to his posting. Don't be a dumbass.

So you could say this thread is intended to tell Emo,"Hey don't be a dumbass"....That's why I posted it.

Yeah his fans calling dumpshockers "nerds ect." has about as much credit to it as a lemming telling you about the aerodynamics of flying and how good they are at it.

Besides Aubrey use to play in my Shadowrun campaign in highschool. So "it's all good"....My point is don't send Randy stupid emails or you may be made the topic of discussion......Randy is very "dumbass intolerant".

Don't worry about his fans...They're entitled to they're views... Even if the validity may be fleeting.

Emo,
Humor in general is difficult to pass along in an email. I think the point is that HE DID want you to find his posting. That's my point.....

Don't sweat it Emo.
From what I read, you kinda kicked ass over there.

Your Emo Leetness inspires me.

Thank you. You now have honor and shit.

And as for his fans, I think I'm on okay terms now with the ones I didn't flame egregiously.

After reading this moronic spiel, I felt compelled to speak up in defense of Dumpshock, given that emo has damaged our apparently already shitty reputations.

Emo, screw off and stop e-mailing people you don't even know and giving them shit. You send something like that, and you wonder why he's so snappy?

I'm not giving Randy shit per se, just the people who actually insulted me bandwagon-style. Him being pissed I can understand; he was the one e-mailed. But the other people are basically on the intellectual and social level of a bunch of idiots cheering on a dude in a street fight.

And are you the dude who just posted on his bl0g? Why are you so fucking concerned?

'Cause I just happen to be a big fan of Something Positive, and I think he's an excellent author. I don't want him thinking badly of me and other S*P fans on Dumpshock by dint of the ramblings of one of the more moronic members of our community.

**We** are concerned because you perpetuate a bad stereotype that we do not want to be associated with. I do not want to continually attack you, and I am finding that I am wearing out my backspace key deleting the venomous comments that you inspire, but you are making it increasingly harder to not disparage you.

How am I stereotypical? I thought the reason people didn't like my campaign ideas was because they were weird.

No, the campaign ideas, that was okay. We sometimes have off the wall stuff. It's your presentation that wears a bit thin.

Lemme put it this way: you've read S*P, right emo?

You sound like Mike (the blond-haired gamer nerd) before he learned social skills.

I'm not a misogynist, and I've never watched my brother beat off to gay porn. I don't argue with other nerds over nerddom bullshit unless it's to say "this is my fucking campaign, stop being a canon dickwad." And I've never complained about being a "nice guy without a girlfriend." And I NEVER complain about how the published material is vastly inferior to my stuff; in fact, I think pretty much everyone here does that more than I do.

Pretty much the only thing left is that you think I'm weird, and that's just bullshit.
