These discussions lead to more people being aware that, hey maybe Giant Bomb isn't actually safe for *everyone* to enjoy? Maybe there are some people that aren't comfortable being around the forums/comments, but no let's keep discussing how "your" fun is being ruined. Okay, sure. Good. Great.
I wrote notes for Ultima Underworld not too long ago, mostly in the game's map-note function. M&M6 also required a bit of note-taking as well, and by the time I was done with Myst I had a few pages filled to the margins with nonsensical gibberish, shoddy math, and shittier maps.

Can't recommend this enough. Immunity to Fear later in the game is really, really, really helpful.
