I'm not some religious person.
I'm 42 years old. Atheist. English.
I'm not stupid with a lack of world knowledge, I'm not following some ridiculous concept of god created the world type shit. I don't believe in anything apart from what I see. Science has proved to me that what goes on is right and that all that god shit is a load of bollox.
unless lack is some sort of Canadian believer in some other hocus pocus stuff I'm not aware of, then he seriously needs to look at the pricks he has employed.
instead of employing the idiots who offer their services, he should seek out those who he wants to be in charge and offer a x$ wage for doing so.

It's funny I was just discussing these very issues with Commander 9. Dude, Mr. Pedronicus, I have always appreciated your views and candor, which are everything that is right with CC and you are dead on with the fucking problems of this site. This posting is a classic fucking example of the folly and spectacle the forums have become. It's almost comedic, that everyone overlooks the initial post and focuses on your age. Who fucking cares if he is 43, 12 or 1,085? Really, does that make his point any less valid. Instead I wasted too much of my fucking life reading you hapless losers debate about his age for weeks. Really? It's shocking.
What ever happened to intelligent conversation? It gets hijacked so we discuss a posters age or possible motivations. Once again, we never get down to the real issues which could inspire change to make shit better, but instead chose to exercise ignorance and using minimal portions of their brain. Fucking stay on topic people. Is it really so hard? Actually, this post just gave me a little wood.
Now that my hands smell like hamburger and garlic, let's get back on topic:
People are finally saying f*ck off to the mods and the mods are stressed out that they no longer garner respect, much to their own faults if you ask me. Basically what's happened is that no one takes this shit seriously, and why should they. It's all about politics and the CC elite. If you are not in that inner circle, or connected to it, well, I guess what I'm seeing is general attitude of f*ck the elite.
Too many times people have gotten off even though they have been blatantly guilty of such things are farming, flaming, baiting and trolling; myself and jefjef among many others, included. Conversely, too many times people have gotten a raw deal and have been punished for shit that is way less harmful to the cc populous than what half these assholes have done.
The biggest issue would have to be farming, and why cc hasn't done something about is just retarded. The elite defend the elite farmers and the rest of us who respect the game have a hard time of respecting them. When rules only apply to some people, things generally tend to up in chaos and rebellion
Bonus Points: Who's the last conqueror who didn't farm their way to the top?
