In case you missed the latest thread that this is a parody of: http://forums.dumpshock.com/index.php?showtopic=19475

Is there a particular reason folks have been posting threads full of horribly contrived abuse, and then rationalizing/explaining away every clever little condescending and self-righteous complaint, then harvesting praise or suggestive criticisms for their efforts?

Did I miss some challenge thread somewhere daring people to make the most silly and broken arguments against having fun they can, is this some means of proving their pitiful little existence that I missed out on, or what?

Now STFU & GBTW!

Shadowrun is not about having fun. In fact, in order to play the game properly you must make sure that *NOBODY* is having fun, and we mean *NOBODY*.

just thought I'd point out that you obviously missed the most essential rule of the system.

I think you're over reacting, and starting another thread specifically to jab back at perceived slights is not the way to go.

Fisty, you want to maybe do my warning level a favor and close this? I can't promise a second "add reply" will be this polite.

...apparently not everyone thinks that designing hyperspecialist characters solely to exploit loopholes and weaknesses in the system, with the frequent side-effect of taking up a disproportionate amount of GM time and often reducing the amount of enjoyment other players get out of a game session, is fun. Who knew?

STFU is shut the fuck up. I must confess ignorance as to the meaning of GBTW.

This thread serves no purpose except baiting and has yet to show any redeeming value. Bye bye thread.

We now return you to your normaly scheduled banter.
