Another Chinese-style day today.
The title is how I was addressed by another of the Inland Empire's greatest idiots.
The reason I bring it up is that it appears that's how most of Vana'diel views people who don't have all the gear that they do.
Frankly, in Vana'diel, your gear IS your reputation. That's why it doesn't surprise me to see someone jack a KClub and then server hop.
That's why it doesn't surprise me to see someone jack a Byakko's Haidate, get a warning put up on them in BG, then BRAG ABOUT IT like the fucking idiot did something that shouldn't have had someone reach into his RL room and wring his fucking neck!!
Without real consequences, all this stuff goes on and people are more than happy to do it.
That's why I have trouble trusting people in this game and that's why I'm not as "advanced" as people think I should be.
