    Yeah but odds are it's a male that identifies as a female......
    so what if it is?

    Remember that online, no one knows your a "female" until you intentionally alert them, which is usually a pathetic attempt to cause drama, gain attention and weave chaos.

    Even sadder is that it works pretty much every time.

    So then I examined my thoughts further, and what surprised me is that an image appeared to me of a "stern looking guy with a grey beard" who told me I should focus my attention deliberately, not to let it wander on silly things and meaningless pursuits.

    That's me by the way, I often look like a angry gray bearded dwarf in real life.
    I tend to look like a bald version of Santa with a goatee....

    Not the same?

    Sooo.... Not a cat?

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Welp. I feel pretty ridiculous now.

    I was just looking for a platform to air my grievances. I now know that this is not the proper place to do it. 

    Not looking for a fight this time around. I hope you guys are doing well. My experience until now here has been fright/enlightening, and I learn as I go.  I want to leave you people with this, that it might help you out as well if you ever find yourself in a time of crisis or in need of deep reflection:

    I had an epiphany as I was going for a walk in the woods today (great exercise if you ever feel like sorting your thoughts out), I used my mind to figure out how I could properly use my imagination to create something purposeful... Like a webcomic or painting.

    As I was reading my posts here I thought: "Wow, my life is actually pretty damn interesting and I make for a funny character." I've never written my thoughts out loud before, but after my experience here I think I should... Only to myself next time, though. ;) Sorry, I'm glad that my life is so entertaining to you Cuddleglass (and I mean it sincerely! It means it has potential! :D). My initial idea was that perhaps my own life experiences could help me into creating an interesting webcomic or story. But then as I thought more deeply about it... How can I be so delighted at my own pain and suffering? This can't be the right way to go. 

    So then I examined my thoughts further, and what surprised me is that an image appeared to me of a "stern looking guy with a grey beard" who told me I should focus my attention deliberately, not to let it wander on silly things and meaningless pursuits. This is what got me into danger in the first place. I allowed for my energies to be scattered without properly directing them first. Error number one.

    Secondly, what I realized is that your imagination can either BREAK you (relentless inner self critic) or MAKE you (utilizing your creative powers to beauty in the world). It is up to you how you use your power. Be gentle with it and use it with the utmost respect, if you can. 

    Thirdly, ALWAYS follow your own Inner Compass and Truth. Do not let society dictate for you what you can do, say or think. You know when something feels right to do? When it brings inner peace and contentment. This is when you know you're making the right decisions in life. AKA: Do not post personal "drama" on public forums. X)

    Well... That's it for now. I want to write more in-depth about my "experiences" in consciousness... This is something MMORPG.com forums has also helped me with, although... Very indirectly. Peace. :) 

    Just use those other relationship forums I sent you, post anonymously.  There are also women only forums.  That's what they are for. ;)

    I have often confessed to being a granny online and no one has batted an eyelid but I suppose it is a good thing I didn't try to pass myself off as a 21 year old.

    Back to my unasked for serious opinion: 

    You shouldn't have to be treated like a troll just because you come out as "female" online, though. Or as a "21-year old girl". To assume someone is immediately looking for attention only because they mention their gender, age or sexual orientation is just... Weird?  I get it, people lack trust on the Internet for good reason. In the end you don't know who you're dealing with and nobody likes to be on the short end of the stick. It's a tricky subject to navigate... But whenever I talk to people off (or online), I don't immediately judge them because they come out as x, y or z. People should be able to talk about whatever they want without feeling shame or guilt. Okay, maybe not ALL people. If you spout hateful remarks or false accusations, then yes, I would advise you to keep your mouth hole shut~ Tee hee~ ;)<3

    @Scot It's an anime character from Phantasy Star Online 2 and I may be a shriveled prune in real life but I am playing a fantasy game so I'd rather play a younger model.

    It isn't just because one comes out as a female online that they get trolled it is because they behave in a certain way like flirting and asking for stuff from players in games. That is why it is commented upon. Look at what you yourself posted here that should give you a good example of why people react to certain posters and why they get called out.

    I often tell people who try to pick me up in games I am 70 years old so they will leave me alone. When I played Everquest I learned the hard way what other players can do to make your life miserable when you reject them.

    I have to say I am am astonished that anyone could see that as anything other than a leg pull. I am not sure if you remember but you have explained to me before about the origins of the avatar, I do know why you choose it.

    But as I said in a recent thread, posters will find things offensive even when you find it hard to understand why they do and that we should apologise if they do. Therefore that's what I am doing now, I hope you realise no ill intent was meant.

    Sadly not much is there to check, for some reason it stopped after the second episode... too bad, interesting characters and a great idea - at that time we even tried the theme CO, and it worked decently, unless there was a time limit or a hard DPS check :)
