I'd report him, before you start the audit.


I let my supervisor know about what happened. I personally don't want to escalate it, he was just upset and I didn't take it personally really.

As for any disciplinary actions against him, not my job -- all I did was take snapshots of his hard drive and submit it to the guy that handles security and forensics.

I could prolly have found something myself quite easily but I just wanted to do my job as fast as I could and not waste time trying to be a cybersleuth just to prove a point.

What amuses me is that I am known for having a short temper, but hurling insults at me is not one way to trigger it.

Tank in Seige of Niuzao Temple bitching about low DPS and how much they hate the instance dropping in the middle of the second trash pack.

amusement because DPS was low because he couldn't bother moving the packs out of the giant bubble that dropped damage by 90%, and once we got a tank that could (the very next one) we all started joking about our 'too low DPS'. Heck, no one even gave the healer who seemed to die nearly every pull a hard time - we all just blamed it on low DPS :P

Yep, saw that on the news - very impressive work with Police costumes, baklavas, assault weapons...

Well, terrifying would be more adequate. But the diamond industry in Belgium is pretty much 90% blood diamonds, so no wonder it attracts the seedy and the dangerous.

No no, you spelled it wrong.

baklava = delicious treat
balaklava = face mask

So the diamond cartel just releases some of the billions of diamonds they have in store rooms to make up for it or they pretend that this is a huge loss and price hike the remaining stock until their slow release brings the supply back up?
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Is there some sort of memo that I missed when I faction changed to alliance where it says "get used to 90% of mages and shamans in randoms having no fucking clue what Time Warp/Heroism is"?

I'm too lazy to bother using Heroism most of the time in that kind of content.

It happens in EVERYTHING. I don't get it. We had NINE people in LFR this morning capable of it (and this wasn't even with me bothering to check how many BM hunters we had) and nothing. I never had this problem when I was horde.

Jesus, is everyone that adamant about Heroism? After a first kill I'm usually like "meh, whatever" about hero.

Any dps that cares about doing good damage cares about when heroism is so they can plan their cooldown usage appropriately!

And "being too lazy" to press one button? (in response to Kysen) That doesn't make any sense. Surely the effort involved in pressing one off the gcd ability will be more than made up for by killing the boss a few gcds faster.

It's more of a "if you have a way to make the fight end faster why not use it" type of thing. It's like in LFR if your dps is going to be shit the least you could do is throw a bone to the people carrying you.

Meh, it's LFR, you're not gonna fail a dps check.


You'd be surprised.

This probably shouldn't surprise me but for some reason it just blows me away.
