I'm A Disgrace to Street Fighter Players Everwhere

 I've picked SSF4 back up after a brief layoff (I was trying to get A-rank in Guitar Hero World Tour...still not there yet).  Yesterday, I got into some ranked mode matches and played against Tyrell Badd, a Cody player.  I admit it; I suck ass at this game, and after reviewing that match, I was worse than usual.  I was trying to get a feel for Adon's anti-air normals, and perhaps a ranked mode match is not the place to do that.  But I still won.  Mr. Badd (if you're nasty) sent me this message after the match:

Name added to youtube list for scrub players. Reason: Lag, massive turtleing. Youtube.com/Mysterbyg

Ok, I won't deny that I'm a scrub, but I have two problems with this.  One, there was no lag in the match.  Second, I'd expect that sort of behavior from a good player, but it's not like he's that good, either.  He just spammed zonk knuckles the whole time.  I guess the arrogance of posting something like that is what gets to me in this case.  It's like he filled out a form, checked a couple of boxes, and is now processing my order.

On an unrelated note, I learned something that has helped my Ryu matchup immensely.  Ryu players at my scrubby level will always, ALWAYS throw a meaty fireball after a sweep.  Meaning wakeup Ultra 1 is pro.

I had to stop playing SSFIV despite putting 600 or so hours into Normal SFIV , i just got really burnt out on it  but I was thinking about returning to it at some point. People like this make me not want to play that game ever again. I can't believe I watched the whole of that video.   Who does this??? Like who thinks this is a good idea? He spells out everyones name in full and  pretty much just says  everyone turtles or is laggy or both. what a dick. 
 
Also, GH:WT I played though every instrument in campaign mode and  I'm pretty sure thats a good sign you probably hate yourself. I never even want to look at the box for that game again...I feel like I might cry just typing this. Even Ozzy singing Labamba doesn't make up for it.

Shit, man, I'm sorry.  I forgot that the URL was in there; I didn't actually watch the video.  I figured that it would be a waste of time.

Haha. He's an attention-seeking sore loser. And he's not even getting that much attention.
 
I don't see what he's trying to accomplish by doing this. But oh well. I guess this kinda puts me off jumping back into the game.

I've tried to pick that game up after not playing for about two weeks and MAN...it's tough to go home again. Keep at it. Or wait for MvC3/Mortal Kombat (whichever floats your boat).
