    Favorite Quotes & Siglines:
    - I can build my 9 claim castle for free but I have to toil to build my tiny miner's shack and settlers cabin? Stoneworker Bias! Mason Favoritism! Or, you know, maybe decision not completely thought through... o_O

    - When posting complaints, compliments and ideas to game forums, never expect everyone to sit there and agree. Those giving counter perspectives aren't fanboys or haters or crybabys - some enjoy what others hate, posting asks for argument and debate, those posting should be ready to participate.

    - Most MMO players have a great talent for identifying any exploit that they themselves have no use for.

    - Players will state in public that they want the game tougher, harder, and more 'fair' when in fact they just want it tougher, harder and more fair for the people they think have it easy, this is almost never themselves.

    - Dementor: A forum poster or player who lives to suck the happiness, joy and excitement from others.

    - An entitled and egocentric vocal minority always dominate game forums. In their fantasies, they represent the larger game playing population, but only in their fantasies.

    - Those who know the least always know it the loudest and with the greatest confidence.

    -The biggest mistake game designers can make is to let marketing design their game. When designing for the largest market share, the end product - like everything made by committee - is a shallow thing that, in trying to please everyone, pleases no one.

    - Two huge mistakes that can mess up any developing game: First, act like the 18 whiners on your forums are the majority and cater to their demands & tantrums. Second, completely ignore the eighteen whiners on your forums when they're all saying the same thing...

    - If you gave the average MMO gamer a hat that could magically create the exact RPG they say they want instantly... they would complain about the hat's color.

    - PvPer is a relatively nonsensical generalization encompassing massively divergent gameplay motivators, including Killer, Achiever, Competitor and Teamwork focused personalities - all unique and individual in their desires and the gameplay that gives them a sense of fulfillment.

    - Experience interacting with people online teaches us three valuable lessons:
    - Education does NOT equate with intelligence
    - Age Does NOT define maturity
    - Human nature is NOT innately good - decent social behavior without threat of punishment comes from a maturing mind, not nature.
