That's all very valid, but it also seems like it all boils down to needing to throw in some qualifiers of "everybody I know" or "in my experience, everybody". It gets tiring to have to police the extent of every statement you make to repetitively acknowledge the limits of your own experience. But of course, when you don't, the reader often has no way of knowing whether you are simply being uncareful in your language, or whether you are actually being uncareful in your thinking, because one of the central bummers of saying anything online is that you are forever making first impressions.
Mostly it's the belief that one person can speak for all gamers everywhere that sticks in my craw. More often than not, people use terms like "everyone" and "nobody" to inflate a weak argument...to make whatever they write seem more applicable and more important than it is. It makes me itch.

The one thing that gets me is when you make a comment and someone responds with something like, "Well, that's just your opinion." Well DUH! Whose opinion would I be using?
 


The 25 page rule: after 25 pages, a thread has typically exhausted most of the arguments and opinions about a given topic, and thus is no longer worth following.

exceptions: threads about pizza, whose meaning is enigmatic and limitless

How am I supposed to trust the opinion of someone who would destroy a perfectly good corned beef sandwich on rye by adding cabbage goo and a mayonnaise concoction. If they can mess up something that simple, why shouldn't I suspect that their gaming habits are similarly absurd!

A quick web-search will find a reputable web-site to back this up entirely!

I should warn everyone to not go searching for later articles. Something seems to have infected the writers after about this time and they actually like them!?!? Apparently bizarre trends and beliefs predate the internet.

My wife apparently likes both Reubens and just corned beef on rye. Next we're going to find out that some people like both Trek and Wars, or multiple ttrpgs, or both country and western. When will the madness end!

Which movie is that from? Looks like could be my kind of horror movie.

I've never seen it, but looks like it's from a movie called Grave Encounters:
