The MacGamerHQ seemed to do this all the time without getting the boot. Of course, this site looks way more shady than his.. But then again, he is active on the forums, so I say let him stay.

You know, I've never played WoW.  I keep hearing stories like you guys are telling, basically that you tend to regret spending so much time on it even though you were very engaged at the time you did.  Over the years, even from the beginning, people have fired warning shots across my bow and I've taken heed.  I have too much of a problem with addictive playing not to.
You missed out on something, and I do recommend you try it when they relaunch vanilla. I never reached the end game, but took my time exploring and having fun, and I still remember it as one of the best gaming experiences I've had. Mind you, this is based on vanilla and the first two expansions. I tried again with one of the recent expansions, after they made it kiddy-friendly, where you gain a level every time you look at an enemy and more or less the only stat you have is your gender, and that wasn't very interesting. So I am definitely looking forward to WOW Classic.

IDK, I didn't hate any of the characters in any season of DS9. Yes, they get better developed, but they were never unlikeable. Certainly not to the extent I hated Wesley, Deanna "I sense deception" Troi, Q, and Guinan. Even Picard in S1 is a bit of a dick.

Maybe Bashir, but that's more to do with his bad acting in the beginning than how he was written.
Wesley, I can understand that, but otherwise are you actually sure you liked TNG? O_o

I'm kinda surprised no one has mentioned the removal of the headphone jack from the latest iPhones. That was all the rage last year.
I've never understood that one, and see it as being similar to the outcry when they removed the floppy drive, ADB, SCSI, DVD drive, whatever thing thing people couldn't live without but actually could when they just tried.

Sure, you bought a pair of 1000$ headphones, then use the adapter and it will work as before. You have a collections of headphones? Well, stay in the past dude. You think the sound is better? Stick to LPs.

People keep saying TNG season 1 and 2 was mediocre. I loved the hell out of it. I'll likely enjoy DS9 season 1 and 2 too.
