There isn't enough Elitism in the community

I've found recently that; as I suppose the title would suggest, there is a lack of contempt for our fellow members - particularly contempt that in my opinion should be aimed towards those who don't have blue title bars, or indeed any well aged and matured titled bars. I've been here for more than 7 years and in all my time i've never seen such a lack of apparent loathing and disdain for the population of Bungie regulars by those, who like me should know better. We should know better, because we are better. I'm quite frankly tired of this seemingly self replicating new found appreciation for those, who are quite frankly beneath us. It, to me is quite unfathomable that in this day and age we post in a forum with such tolerance and understanding. There are safe havens, only a few in number I might add that may appreciate this view - though it is my belief that the generation to which i belong, the generation that made Bnet what it is, is drifting into the abyss. Who among you is capable of stepping up to the plate? Who among you has the know how to stop this most precious of cultures from disappearing entirely from our beloved forums. If we lose this, we lose our identity. Our community, to dust.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] JBSpudster There is unrest in the forums, there is trouble with the fans For the Members want attention, and the Mythics ignore their plans The trouble with the Mythics, and they're quite convinced they're right They say Members are too childish, posting spam all day and night But the Members can't help their failings, they've not seen the ebb and flow And they wonder why the Mythics get upset with their callow There is trouble in the forums; all common sense is dead As everyone screams, 'Elitists!', and the Mods just shake their heads So the Mythics formed a union; self entitled they remained 'The Members are just too naive, we will make them feel ashamed!' Now there's no more rouge oppression; the darkness has bored most jerks And the fans are all kept equal, by Achronos, DeeJ, and Urk[/quote] I am hiring a calligrapher to copy this masterpiece onto the finest vellum and a master woodcarver to produce a maple wood frame to hold it.

  • I take members with bars more seriously because they are generally not trolls. It's so difficuit to not look down upon normal members after going through all that jazz with the Reach forum.

  • Meh. I'm 8 years old and as per usual senior-child relationships, the young'ns never listen to my wild tales of way back when. My obvious superiority, authority and knowledge in every relevant/important subject goes unnoticed. The world seems in balance. [Edited on 01.04.2013 11:06 PM PST]

  • Maybe we should divide up into factions and wage digital war via realspace? Mythics v Legendary v Heroic v Member. GO! First one to link a photo of them outside of Bungie's studio with today's date on a piece of paper gets the first point per member in the photo.

  • I'd like to take this time to assure people that this joke has totally not been over done and is in no way indicative of a person with bad wit. Also, Deej just told me that he is finally going to send me the box of chocolate chip cookies he totally promised. [Edited on 01.04.2013 3:37 AM PST]

Once Bungie is bright, I'm pretty confident that Elitism will rear its ugly head once more and make this Community go round.

  • I like that no one noticed I said [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] goldhawk we post in a forum with such tolerance and understanding. [/quote] I actually meant that, it's actually good to see this place develop and 'grow up', for a change. Of course this thread is a parody and of course none of you should take it remotely seriously - it's here for light comedic effect. If i got a few smirks, or a little chuckle my work is done. I'll be back to post a new thread in another 2 years.
