Good thing no one did that then, eh?
Indeed, besides that, why try so hard to point out that you don't need all that stuff in a thread where folks are telling you why they do?
People were discussing Hascon, and I simply stated I'm kind of glad that we can get the exclusives for a cheaper price and not have to travel thanks to Pulse. Someone made a salty response to my opinion, and so I explained that the 'pros' they listed didn't really matter much to me, while making a joke about the last point (being able to meet people in person). This, in turn, led you to clutch your pearls like I just punted the guy's puppy out of a helicopter and into the Manhattan skyline.
With the amount of butt hurt over a couple of posts, one could be excused for thinking that this sounds less like people being upset that some of us aren't fans of cons in general, and more that they're offended the whole 'prestige' event is gone, along with the over-priced toys that signaled one's attendance.
I'm not saying that's necessarily the case, just that I could excuse someone for getting that impression.
My salty response was my reaction to the impression I got from you that exclusive toys are the ONLY reason to go to, or even have in the first place, a convention.
If you get to see your collecting friends every weekend, you're very fortunate. Not all of us have that proximity.
So now it's my fault you made an assumption and got mad over it?
I was making a joke about going and hanging out with your friends, regardless of your mutual hobbies. Hence the " " smilie to let you know I was kidding.
The way some of you are always looking to take offense, even when none is offered, and refuse to let something go is a primary reason why this is my default reaction to most cons or meet up suggestions:
To be fair, most fans aren't like that IRL - at least the ones around my area aren't. Then again, most of the fans around my area don't play the "I'm so offended at nothing" game on the boards in the first place, so who really knows.
This sucks. I really wanted to take my kids to check it out this year. TFs for my boys and My Little Pony for my daughter. Even it was for 1hr.
