Alright.
I'm done with this.

I am going to address every issue with everything that bothers me right now.
Read it or don't, I really don't care, but this has been long coming and I need to blow off some steam before I end up bashing someone's head in.

So, let's get started.

So, everyone has the little things in life that bother them, all of the pet peeves that get on their nerves. For me though, all of these pet peeves are what annoy me. I see blogs all the time of people going on their little rants about things they dislike. Improper grammar, "ageism", sexism, even things that shouldn't make a difference like shading styles, or server types. So, I am going to tackle these right now, so everyone can just shut up.

First off, improper grammar.
It is pretty simple why this one gets on my nerves. THIS IS THE INTERNET, NOT ENGLISH CLASS. I get it sometimes, nobody likes when people talk like "oMG d3s 1z c0oL1! KAWA11." But when you correct little mistakes in someone's comment, I want to smack you. Nobody is perfect, everyone makes mistakes, especially spelling mistakes. There is not a person in the world who has never made a spelling mistake, and if you think that you have perfect grammar, well then you have a lot more learning to do.

So, moving on from the "grammar nazis," let's talk about something that really gets me going.
"Ageism." Alright, it just plain sounds ridiculous, doesn't it!? Now, I am not saying that it doesn't happen, and I am not saying what they are doing is fair, but what annoys me is people's reactions to it. I have seen more than my fair share of groups and such that require you to be a certain age to be with them. Now, let me make something clear. The reason why they do this is because, on average, older people are more likely to be mature. There are about the same number of older people who are immature as there are younger people who are mature, so it is often a safe bet to go with a little bit of a restriction on age. Now, something else that should be clear, if you are applying for a position in something, and you have the skill to back it up, then your age wont matter. I have NEVER seen someone choose an older person who is less qualified than a younger person who is more qualified. It would be stupid of them to do that. And, to wrap up this bit, if you are so bothered with people who aren't going to let you be part of their group because of your age, be glad that you aren't in their group! Would you really want to associate with someone who wouldn't even give someone younger a chance because of their age?

Next up, we have something else -ism related.
Sexism. Now, let me clarify, when I talk about this, I am mean how girls in the gaming community are treated. Now, let's be honest here, I have NEVER seen things like this happen. That doesn't mean that is hasn't happened, but it most certainly is not as common as people make it seem. Now, listen here girls, if some guy is bothering you like "img wanna date," just ignore him! People that stupid to think that they will get anywhere with a girl they can only see a pixely version of on a video game really are not worth your time, nor anyone else's.

Alright, so less of a smooth transition here, into something that I personally do know firsthand.
Popularity. Don't you find it odd that EVERY blog EVER written on "how to get popular on PMC" was written by someone with less than 200 subscribers? These people have no idea what they are talking about! All they are trying to achieve is some kind of illusion of popularity for themselves, they really don't know how to be actually popular. For those of you who want to know how to be "popular," it is simple. Be as nice as you can, and work hard on your stuff. If you do that, and work towards always improving, the popularity will come.
(A note I would like to add though, if you are only doing something so that you can be popular, you never will be popular. When you do something you love, it really shows in your work, and makes it much better.)

Alright, I am going to close on this.
It is truly amazing how people act when they are not face to face with someone. It seems that people think that because the person they are speaking to is not right if front of them, they can say whatever they want.
So, I bring you the one, and only rule of the internet.

Just be nice, and mind your own business.

(This blog was done in one take, late at night, so it may not be super high quality, and may not be very well written, just try to understand the points I am trying to get across.)

There should be a section of PMC called 'Rants' where people just post stuff about almost universally agreed opinions like ageism, sexism, what a good server is, why people who leave floating trees should be exiled from society, and why they prefer waffles over cereal, then stamp it and send it off with a little picture at the bottom telling the readers to leave those shiny bits of carbon we value so much, an important cardiovascular organ, and telling the readers to agree with them in the coments.

And it can be contained within lead walls and guarded under lock-and-key in a leakproof container so that none of it can escape.

this is a good blog but the issue that mainly gets under my skin is the constantly bad PMC skins with no effort put into them at all. AKA all the teen and honeydew clones

I correct people's grammar because I like to suggest improvements that may be missed by the author, not because I get some feeling of superiority just from doing it. The reason that it's a lot better to work with a partner when programming is your partner can spot obvious errors you make but can't find and vice versa.

I was actually thinking about writing a blog post similar to this, but it seems you beat me to it. Good job.

Great job bro. I did not read the full rant but I sort of skimmed over it and it the points you made seemed to me to be well developed and you understand fully what you are talking about and not just assuming. I would also like to read some more of your work.

Who the hell cares? Listen, I support the community but to be honest, no one on the internet wants to hear this. Sure, there's a select few who read and are nice but I HIGHLY suggest you do not come here to complain about shit people have thousands of times before.

Well written, not well presented.
Keep up the good work, I'll subscribe for more content, but I hope not to see any of this.

Woo, a rant to end all rants. You stole my idea (which I technically didn't own..) and executed it better than I ever could. Let's do a massive purging of the blogs section and start over. Heck, why not a massive purging of PMC in general? Let's erase everything that's not original, and start being original. I'm sick and tired of the awful blogs that HIT THE POP REEL and repeat the same message over and over again. The members who are generally regarded as the premier bloggers of this age don't have a single new idea, yet they hit the popular reel every single time. That's why I've stopped posting, and I'm about to quit the forums due to a lack of topics worth discussing and a lack of mature individuals to discuss those few quality topics in the way that they should be discussed.

On the subject of sexism, I can tell you from experience that it goes both ways. I have seen several situations where a female (allegedly) pursues a male in MC or other video games.

I agree very much on the "age-ism" and popularity points you have stated. Especially when you said that most blogs on 'Popularity' was written by unpopular people who don't know what they are saying.

I only agree on the sexism and popularity blogs ones. As for the server thing mentioned at the beginning, there are tons of unoriginal faction servers and over time, people have become more annoyed about that. Not to mention crappy server staff...

Also, I have a clue on who you're aiming this at, considering that these types of blogs have been going around recently, so that fact kinda makes this blog a bit offensive.

About the ageism thing, it's not always kids who post those blogs just because they're sad. Actual adults/teenagers post them, just to make the issue aware and the pity they have on those kids.

Lastly, I kind of got offended by the "grammar nazi" thing. Nobody likes it when people talk like they just entered the second grade, and so that just gets really annoying at times when I see in the chat "h3Y
wANn@ JOEwN$ MAh^ seR>Ir?///1//??!!?!??/". All it does is ruin your reputation and make you look like a total idiot. I also hate it when people think that people who correct people with bad grammar are all like "You didn't spell didn't with with the apostrophe!". We aren't. We just want to make the chat clearer.

The ting about servers and crappy server staff is, if you don't like it, don't play on it. There are great servers around still, though you may need to spend some time to find it.

I am not aiming this at anyone. TONS of people write these blogs, and the ideas had merit in the beginning, but since the ideas have been repeated so many times they really don't need more blogs about it.

Yeah, it is not just kids who write these blogs, but I am talking about the majority of these blogs. And, even so, the issue does not need to be made aware of anymore, it is something everyone knows about, and there are thousands of blogs about it, we don't need any more.

Lastly, I don't think you understood the point I was trying to make about the grammar nazis. I get that not all do the whole "*correction" thing, however, it happens a TON. All it does is make people look pretentious and snobby when they do that.

Great rant. This really covers everything that frustrates me with most of this site and just the internet in general. As for the sexism part, here's a tip for the girls. If you don't want to be asked to go on a "date," then don't wear a girl skin that makes you look "attractive" to kids or tell people you're a girl.

What's also really annoying about ageism stories, is that these kids will admit that they cried and raged when they didn't get their staff position... Then they go into a rant about ageism and maturity... Um, what?

Much if not all has already been said and is the opinion shared by the majority of people. I just don't see how it adds to what's already been said, not that voicing his opinion is a bad thing or anything.

As he said in the start of the blog, the purpose of the blog was so he can "blow off some steam." the purpose wasn't to create some sort of "new view" or opinion to what has already been said in other blogs about the subjects, he wants to vent, every single opinion is valuable, even if's been said before.

In reality, a lot of what you say has probably been said before by another person, but does that make your opinion invalid? does it make what you're saying less important? I don't think it does,

"Don't you find it odd that EVERY blog EVER written on "how to get popular on PMC" was written by someone with less than 200 subscribers? These people have no idea what they are talking about!" Meggles wrote one...She has more then 200...Its not EVERY blog. And I'm sooo happy how you didn't include, "SKIN STEALING!" Cause thats getting tiring to look in the blog section and have millions of blogs going, "STOP SKIN STEALING!" or something...Posting anything original now is trying to pick that one ball you love from a thousand others.
