They used to call me "Nintendo Boy.": How's the water in there, Neo? -
When Twitter stormed our digital world a few years ago I LOATHED the idea of it. I enjoyed Facebook for personal friends and family; seeing pictures of my nieces and nephews as they grew or checking in on old friends’ trips is always nice. Some folks think social networking makes us talk less….
I am just crazy about Cliff Bleszinski’s p-blog. (Personal blog. Try to keep up.)

I received the most charming email earlier today, the content of which largely focuses on my recent review of the excellent LittleBigPlanet Vita. “Largely” might be the wrong word to use, since a lot of it actually focuses on how big of a fucking dumb piece of shit I am.
“Bullshit, dumb fuck. you’re NOTHING but a dumb fucking piece of shit; a stupid bitch that spouts NOTHING but inane bullshit. I didn’t read practically any of your LBP Vita review, but I did see that one line, and it’s utter bullshit: contrary to your inane bullshit, LBP is NOT the best thing on vita to date=FACT. FACT is that title easily goes to Gravity Rush—one of the all-time greatest games—and even if it didn’t, other vita games such as BB:CSE, Ragnarok Odyssey, UMVC3, and even older games purchasable on the PSN such as Wild Arms or DD 012 beat the LIVING SHIT out of the pathetic excuse of a LBP entry=FACT, and further cements it status as NOT the best game on Vita. Can’t expect an ignorant piece of shit such as yourself to comprehend such facts, though. Go fuck your slutty-ass bitch mother, contract her MANY stds, and die you pathetic piece of shit; do us ALL a favor.”
This isn’t the first piece of hate mail like this I’ve received, but it’s certainly among the most colorful. My favorite part, however, is the paragraph that follows:
“This is a fake e-mail made specifically for the purpose of sending this message. I’ll be abandoning it completely and never signing in again, so this is our last contact. Dwi. You and your ignorant bullshit and the shitty LBP Vita have lost, I and the FACTS I state and superior games such as GR have weon. Another FACT for your stupid little bitchass.”
I was intrigued by this method of account self-destruction, and the kind of time it must take to execute. Maybe for a single, inscrutable blast of anonymous hatred, it makes sense, but surely it would lose appeal as a means of frequent communication, right?
To the Google!
Sure enough, the account (from user Fordatkace Y) had been shut down, pre-empting me from sending a clever email retort. However, this same person had been sending roughly the same message to people and websites, and swapping out the subject matter to reflect how their opinion was wrong and his (or hers) was right. Each message followed a similar pattern of brutal support for their opinion — and there, at the bottom, the self-destruct warning.
Like this review for Blazblue Continuum Shift.

I will forever be intrigued by people who spend their time screaming at the internet, and in that regard, this masked villain, this Zorro-esque character with his Inspector Gadget-esque imploding hate bombs, is the new object of my fascination. Creating accounts for web-based services is a process I dread — this person has weaponized that process. They’ve turn Gmail accounts into mortar shells, which they can then fire — “FUCK YOOOOOU” — and then, like magic, disappear.
