Thanks for making an official statement, @jeff. I sincerely hope it makes a difference, though it's hard to believe it will. I hope the site can move on from this and grow. It's ridiculous that being "fun and unprofessional" equates to "hey, they hate this liberal PC bullshit too!" and let people think that you approve of their actions or secretly agree with them.

It's a shitty situation for all involved, and even if it accomplishes nothing, this editorial at least knocks the assholes down a peg and symbolizes what you stand for a bit more. I think hearing members like you and Vinny talking about these subjects every now and then would go a long way towards eliminating this mentality, since people seem to be able to mentally segregate Patrick's and Alex's opinions from the rest of the site. You and Vinny are often seen as the heart and soul of the site, so it might hit home a little more coming from you.

Hopefully this childishness is in the past now.

@wrighteous86: Did you two actually meet off here?

True story. I wrote about it in this thread. It's weird being able to go back and see the forum thread we first participated in together, and the photoshop contest I threw that she entered, and see how those threads wove together and started the discussions that lead to our relationship. Also, mutual love of Vinny.

Sorry to be pedantic, but my rudimentary knowledge of Russian tells me that is dried squid, not octopus.

Dried Squid Rings, yeah. I only know that because the British translation was in small print on the back. We picked them up from a shady Russian import market near our train station in Naples. Meh, they were close enough. I'm surprised they tried them.

Wait.... do American's not have meat flavored crisps?

We have just started getting them (specifically steak and BLT I think, and chicken-and-waffles for a limited time only), but it's not really common. They are really rare and not very popular. It's much more common in the UK it seems, where you guys have bacon, roast beef, roast chicken, steak, etc. The US chips tend to be more cheese, bbq, onion, etc. Meat-flavored crisps really kind of freak me out.

Hey, congrats to the duders who got engaged, that's awesome!

Thanks, man!

@wrighteous86: Wow man, Jeff immediately recognized you two when he saw the pictures, which means your tale of love has even reached the men at the top. You're practically internet famous at this point!

Also, I'm expecting whatever the E3 Mystery Box is to probably involve stupid shenanigans on their nightly live-streams.

Yeah, the Giant Bomb guys have been aware of DuskVamp and I for a while. They've kind of intersected our lives/relationship since the very beginning. I'll probably be writing a blog showing how involved they've been with us sometime today. Keep an eye out, especially if you want to hear Drew, Dave, and Vinny sing.

Lady in picture is very pretty. Much jealous of husband. ♥

Haha thank you. Let's just say they've earned a lifetime Premium Member in me.

I had addressed the package to "Giant Bomb" but last minute decided that was a bad choice and wrote in Jeff's name instead.

Also, apparently the leek is the Welsh National Vegetable, and Cymru (kum-ree) is Welsh for "Wales".

I'm still looking forward to trying Ni No Kuni. Hope to get around to it soon. Finally Fantasy X is secretly the best FF though. FFXII wa pretty good too, to be fair.

This is the most positive comments section I have ever seen, good work internet!

Weeeelll, that's because any comment that's faintly negative is apparently deleted by moderators without warning.

We delete posts like yours because it's breaks the rule '

Don't be a jerk

'

You'll find that people can be negative and constructive but posts like that are unnecessary and don't spark any discussion worth having here.

Posts like what? I posted that I didn't care much for this, how is that being a jerk?

I really do get the impression that anyone who doesn't fawn over any special guest is immediately being censored here, cause apparently that's not the kind of discussion deemed "worth having". Personally, I dislike echo chambers like that, even if I were to agree with the crowd.

"Ugh, I really can't stand this person."

Yeah, totally what you said. Totally not being a jerk. That's totally saying "I don't care much for this episode". Totally opens up valuable discussion's worth having.

If that's going to be your contribution, it's not really wanted.

Don't be a jerk.

I'm tempted to try Save the Date based on Zoe's description. Anyone else tried it and recommend it?

I went to Pizza Hut in Hong Kong, it was one classy dine in restaurant. I mean, there was a 20 minute wait outside to get in.

I went to Pizza Hut in the UK, and it was a nice dine-in restaurant too. Had a salad bar and a wine menu. Crazy.
