RW Emerson, on MMORPGs

You shall have joy, or you shall have power, said God; you shall not have both.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), _Journals_ (Oct. 1842)
Heh. Yeah. I’ll take joy.
You know the funny thing about this whole mess with the ‘private’ areas of the Alliance forums being made public? It doesn’t matter to me.
Yeah, I said some not nice things, but I daresay I never said not-nice things to folks that I was, in some OTHER venue, nice to. I might have said things differently if the forums sections had been public, but I would have said the SAME things. If someone out there read something I said, and it made them mad — well, I’m sorry about that, but I’d be astonished if any of it surprised anyone.
I said the same exact thing in January, and I’ll say it again now: I’m not ashamed of anything I said, and (aside from the time I wasted on writing out all that admin crap that just wasn’t worth the time spent) I don’t regret any of it. Period.
And, well, not everyone can say that. There is a lot of stuff up there that the authors are really wishing had never seen the light of day, cuz there just isn’t any way to spin when both of your faces are exposed.
