MMORPG: Forum Refuge for the Poor :D

BleakmageBleakmage Plattsburgh, NYPosts: 174Member

I was a subscriber of SWTOR from Jan 19 2012 to March 16 2013 (close enough), and I liked to post in the forums ever once in a while. Not hardcore by any stretch, but I just discovered the hard way that you can't even post in the forums if you are a FtP or even a 'Preferred' customer. Not 'preferred' enough for your opinions to matter, no not at all.

Not really angry about it, but it was mildly disappointing. But then. . .

I remembered good ole MMORPG.com. Glad this site is here :D

    yup,,not many have that privilege anymore

    and yes ,,,you are rich,,not so much because of the 15$

    but you have a computer, internet, and spare time to spend on games

    a poor person doesnt have any of those,,or have you seen many posts from somalia?,,or sudan?

    playing games is  a luxury,,and bitching about them even more so

    our ancestors would have flogged us , until we had plowed 3 fields with our hands

    I'd be more than happy to plow a field with my hands if it brought in a paycheck; you can keep the flogging :D

    Maybe we have different criterias regarding being rich and poor.

    i guess we do

    if you ever get poor, you will know the difference

    a standard western citizen is RICH,,but not bill gates FILTHY RICH

    and a lot of americans will soon discover , how it is to be POOR

    it is simply a matter of perspective

    Oh brother. Having  a television, computer and internet does not make someone rich. You can't compare the poor of america to the poor of a third world country. That's a false equivelency.

    okay,,go to a hobo, and count how many TVs and computers they have

    and you just proved my point,,the poor in america, would be considered standard in third world

    im still saying this,,,if you have time and money to spend on games, you are RICH

    doesnt mean you can buy a plane or a yacht  in cash, but  comparing to most of the world,

    you really have a luxury ride

    lets hope you never find out , how lucky you really are

    see a documentary about, how they make your dinner salt,,or how they grow your coffee

    if you still dont feel rich after that..

    a hobo isn't someone who is poor first off.

     

    2nd off, what the person said is right, dont compare poor/rich of a first world country to a third world country. america's standards are pretty much as such. Lower class(poor people) make less than 20 thousand dollars a year. MIddle class make around 50 thousand dollars a year. Anything over 100 thousand dollars a year and you're upper class(aka rich, or close enough to it)

     

    what you're trying to pass off as poor is not someone who's making less than 20 thousand dollars a year. It's someone who's homeless, doesn't have a job, can barely feed themselves if at all, probably bone thin. You can have a home(apartment) internet, tv, phone and food AND still have money left over for mmorpgs for less than 20 thousand a year.

    and that another validation of my point,,rich and poor is relative,,and even coupled to a persons FEELINGS

    you can find people, who own practically nothing, and they are still okay

    and rich people, who has it all, but still wants more

    now go to a starving child , and tell him " hey, i feel for you man,,im poor too"

    i dont think he will agree
