    Computers beat up my role player

    Can you identify the D&D player who said this?
    As a typically ambitious player, I did what all others of that ilk do: Everything I could do to gain advantage for my PCs and rise in level as rapidly as possible.
    I'll give a hint: He is a regular poster to ENWorld. (Technically, that's two hints.)

    Yep, I figured it had to be the most ironic answer possible.

    Sounds like the challenge most MMO's have to deal with.

    That poster obviously doesn't know the first thing about how to play D&D correctly and is having bad wrong fun.

    Oh, and for a moment I thought it was me. But then again the quote lacked the "... but I especially like stabbing fellow players in the back."

    I think that part of the quote is just assumed

    I was actively playing those characters, often at conventions, and having other players know such information would be an advantage to them, a disadvantage to me, in case of a conflict.

    In answer to why EGG was so unwilling to disclose/publish his characters' stats.
