@Desert Dog - It amazes me how well you manage to ignore my question.
I've asked it.. what, 2 or 3 times and yet the closest you've come to answer it was by asking me
similar questions, yet totally unrelated to your quote.
He called it enormously stupid, and then when someone mildly mentioned they thought it was o.k. called him a smart ass
Nice done. You should be proud of yourself. What you basically did there, was take a movie which has won an award for containing the fewest racist jokes, strip out 1 minute of racist jokes from it, cut it together and display that 1 minute shortfilm on behalf of the entire movie.
I guess that's one way to get people on "your side of the cause" - ignoring the actual content, and exaggerate.
I did not call him a smartass for simply saying "I think it's ok.", I called him a smartass due to the way he responded to my post.
He could have been scammed when he brought his computers, for example, and paid twice the going rate.
I checked the prices in all the nearby stores. Sure as hell I wasn't scammed.
Can you check the economy of the nominees for this GM copy "sponsorship"? I don't think so.
That makes your argument invalid.
Because he assumes that they won't do a bit of research into who they are buying the copy for?
And how, if I may politely ask, do you expect to be able to check if a person is poor?
"Give me your bank account, I need to check if you're poor enough." - seriously? Come on. You can do better than that.
I should probably zip it now.
Yes, you should. It's really just starting to annoy me, having to answer your replies. And the one quoted above didn't make any valid sense at all.
Yeah I don't agree with it, unless the child is disabled they are perfectly capable of getting a job mowing grass and purchasing it themselves.
Had I known initially he had such a reputation
I don't. I merely had quite a large discussion with another user, whom I believe to be the biggest troll (besides being a general dumbass) who ever browsed the internet, right before Christmas. So it's like, 5 months ago. Get over it, mcoot.
Ah. It appears the GMC's (other) resident troll has returned!
Yes, it's amazing what you people call people who gives their opinion to the public.
You people either say "I agree" or say nothing at all.
I, for one, am not afraid to say "I don't agree". Honestly, you're not dealing too well with that.
Your 'logic' doesn't hold up because the two 'causes' aren't mutually exclusive.
I never said "There's people who don't have clean water to drink or bread to eat. - therefore you shouldn't eat or drink".
It's your logic that doesn't hold up, I never even implied anything like that.
If they are selected based on potential talent, then it doesn't matter if they could have bought it themselves.
Have you even read the topic? Quote from the OP;
As an aside, I wouldn't mind trying to set up a way to "sponsor" an aspiring game maker who doesn't have the money for new versions of GM.
I rest my case, troll.
