ANYWAY, the thread http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=181427 was about how GosuGamers had a poll for the best Starcraft II person of the year but they did not want to include Idra because they had this thing and then he did the other thing and then people k kl fh hasdjkghsjakgnasdglasdjhg...
It was a crazy thread where Zelniq changed the title for kicks and everyone was jumping in to support Idra and rage against the Gosu people and make logical arguments and other shit.
This brings back the memory of the first thread I ever created here on Team Liquid. I called it "Writing Over Reading." It wasn't the best original post ever made and it wasn't a very popular thread. However, I still believe I made a good point about how people read something and even if they read the entire post they still usually throw down whatever the first emotion they felt as they read. People do this when they speak too. It's the old "Do you listen, or wait to speak" thing.
This thread was a great example of emotional posting. When I first read the post I wanted to correct an error that the original poster made saying there was only one North American (Huk) on the list for GosuGamers player of the year. I just wanted to point out that qxc was an American. Then people started to discuss the Idra ordeal and the bad blood between him and GosuGamers. I had pretty much brushed that whole issue aside when I first read the post. So second post in the thread was already the 62nd reply on the fourth page saying, "I just want to know why GosuGamers took this issue the way they did? What is THEIR point of view?" I'm pretty sure my question was completely ignored by dozens of Idra supporters and newly turned GosuGamer haters. I don't really care if you love Idra, hate Idra, love GosuGamers, or hate Gosu Gamers. I just wanted to find out the other side of the story.
Holy shit, it was a prime example of fast, emotionally fueled posting. I posted again later on just saying that the whole thing was not really a big deal but people were still trash talking the GosuGamers poll around then. Shortly after my last post, the thread was closed by Nazgul after saying, "Unbelievable none of you guys have bothered to look for an explanation from gosugamers and judge them so easily nonetheless. Get a clue."
Maybe he was talking about people asking GosuGamers directly. But damn that's when my frustration kicked in. I was trying to figure out why they would feel that way and not want Idra in their poll. My mom always told me there were two sides to every story and I was just curious. I had no emotional outburst until the thread was closed and I felt like I was trying to be sensible and most other people were not. Then the worst part of this entire situation is that I feel like a 13 year old girl writing in her journal after a rough day at school where one of the popular girls made a hurtful joke about my new haircut. Is that even what girls make fun of each other for?
Well, shit. I have rambled enough. There is a good chance I could have organized this and made it somewhat readable, but that would not align with my goal of writing it. I wanted to not care about that stuff and just get down my thoughts before I go to bed. And now I will go to bed without having to worry about the threat of having demented dreams of Idra, GosuGamers, and the legion of Team Liquid crazies.
P.S. I still love you TL. At least for now.
