They targeted gamers.

Gamers.

We're a group of people who will sit for hours, days, even weeks on end performing some of the hardest, most mentally demanding tasks. Over, and over, and over all for nothing more than a little digital token saying we did.

We'll punish our selfs doing things others would consider torture, because we think it's fun.

We'll spend most if not all of our free time min maxing the stats of a fictional character all to draw out a single extra point of damage per second.

Many of us have made careers out of doing just these things: slogging through the grind, all day, the same quests over and over, hundreds of times to the point where we know evety little detail such that some have attained such gamer nirvana that they can literally play these games blindfolded.

Do these people have any idea how many controllers have been smashed, systems over heated, disks and carts destroyed 8n frustration? All to latter be referred to as bragging rights?

These people honestly think this is a battle they can win? They take our media? We're already building a new one without them. They take our devs? Gamers aren't shy about throwing their money else where, or even making the games our selves. They think calling us racist, mysoginistic, rape apologists is going to change us? We've been called worse things by prepubescent 10 year olds with a shitty head set. They picked a fight against a group that's already grown desensitized to their strategies and methods. Who enjoy the battle of attrition they've threatened us with. Who take it as a challange when they tell us we no longer matter. Our obsession with proving we can after being told we can't is so deeply ingrained from years of dealing with big brothers/sisters and friends laughing at how pathetic we used to be that proving you people wrong has become a very real need; a honed reflex.

Gamers are competative, hard core, by nature. We love a challange. The worst thing you did in all of this was to challange us. You're not special, you're not original, you're not the first; this is just another boss fight.

Rise up, gamers.


They targeted sudoku players.

Sudoku players.

We're a group of people who will sit for hours, days, even weeks on end performing some of the hardest, most mentally demanding tasks. Over, and over, and over all for nothing more than a little filled in number grid saying we did.

We'll punish our selfs doing things others would consider torture, because we think it's fun.

We'll spend most if not all of our free time slicing and slotting the squares of a small grid all to minimise our solve times by a second.

Many of us have made careers out of doing just these things: slogging through the grind, all day, the same grids over and over, hundreds of times to the point where we know evety little number combination such that some have attained such sudoku nirvana that they can literally solve these grids blindfolded.

Do these people have any idea how many pencils have been snapped, grids made illegible, paper torn up in frustration? All to latter be referred to as bragging rights?

These people honestly think this is a battle they can win? They take our media? We're already building a new one without them. They take our grid designers? Sudoku players aren't shy about throwing their money else where, or even making the games our selves. They think calling us racist, mysoginistic, rape apologists is going to change us? We've been called worse things by middle aged adults solving those casual grids in the newspaper columns. They picked a fight against a group that's already grown desensitized to their strategies and methods. Who enjoy the battle of attrition they've threatened us with. Who take it as a challange when they tell us we no longer matter. Our obsession with proving we can after being told we can't is so deeply ingrained from years of dealing with big brothers/sisters and friends laughing at how pathetic we used to be that proving you people wrong has become a very real need; a honed reflex.

Sudoku players are competative, hard core, by nature. We love a challange. The worst thing you did in all of this was to challange us. You're not special, you're not original, you're not the first; this is just another high difficulty grid.


They targeted bird watchers.

Bird watchers.

We're a group of people who will sit for hours, days, even weeks on end performing some of the hardest, most mentally demanding tasks. Over, and over, and over all for nothing more than a note in the local ornithology bulletin saying we did.

We'll punish our selfs doing things others would consider torture, because we think it's fun.

We'll spend most if not all of our free time looking at birds to maximize our bird knowledge by a little bit.

Many of us have made careers out of doing just these things: slogging through the birds, all day, the same birds over and over, hundreds of times to the point where we know evety little feather such that some have attained such bird nirvana that they can literally identify these birds blindfolded.

Do these people have any idea how many binoculars have been smashed, notebooks scored to shreds, pencils broken in frustration? All to latter be referred to as bragging rights?

These people honestly think this is a battle they can win? They take our binoculars? We're already building new ones without them. They take our ornithology books? Bird watchers aren't shy about throwing their money else where, or even writing the books our selves. They think calling us racist, mysoginistic, rape apologists is going to change us? We've been called worse things by boy scouts. They picked a fight against a group that's already grown desensitized to their strategies and methods. Who enjoy the battle of attrition they've threatened us with. Who take it as a challange when they tell us we no longer matter. Our obsession with proving we can after being told we can't is so deeply ingrained from years of dealing with big brothers/sisters and friends laughing at how pathetic we used to be that proving you people wrong has become a very real need; a honed reflex.

Bird watchers are competative, hard core, by nature. We love a challange. The worst thing you did in all of this was to challange us. You're not special, you're not original, you're not the first; this is just another stake out.


esoForum.

Last year (edited by scuba Last year)

They targeted esoForum users.

EsoForum users.

We're a group of people who will sit for hours, days, even weeks on end shitposting some of the best, most mentally demanding threads. Over, and over, and over all for nothing more than a single reply calling us a shitbird.

We'll punish our selfs doing things others would consider torture, because we think it's fun.

We'll spend most if not all of our free time typing letter after letter just to get a couple replies.

Many of us have made careers out of doing just these things: slogging through the grind, all day, the same shitposts over and over, hundreds of times to the point where we know evety little thread such that some have attained such shitposter nirvana that they can literally make new memes blindfolded.

Do these people have any idea how many keyboards have been smashed, drafts discarded, posts deleted 8n frustration? All to latter be referred to as bragging rights?

These people honestly think this is a battle they can win? They take our memes? We're already scheduling a new one without them. They take our POST ? EsoTalkers aren't shy about throwing their shekels else where, or even making the POST our selves. They think calling us racist, gay, rape apologists is going to change us? We've been called worse things by shitposting highschoolers with a shitty forum. They picked a fight against a group that's already grown desensitized to their normie memes. Who enjoy the battle of attrition they've threatened us with. Who take it as a challange when they tell us esoForum is dead. Our obsession with proving we can after being told we can't is so deeply ingrained from years of dealing with big brothers/sisters and friends laughing at how pathetic we used to be that proving you people wrong has become a very real need; a honed reflex.

EsoForum users are competative, hard core, by nature. We love a challange. The worst thing you did in all of this was to challange us. You're not special, you're not original, you're not the first; this is just another unorginal thread.

Rise up, esoTalkers.
