    I can do that...but my god...who wants to play facebook games, I tried that for about two weeks at work before I couldnt stand it anymore.

    Or are we talking some Rifts or Bad Company 2 type of games? If so then....yes, she must be nerfed.....just because she's female and gets to do that....(that's just for you, sacre bleu)

    Not really. I know a guy who is a beta tester and he said he hates games right about now. You don't always like the game you are playing, and your job is not to enjoy the game but to try everything and go everywhere where you suspect the game's enviroment/rules might fail.

    Trust me, beta testing is far from being all fun and games.

Even going so far as to state that he'd quit and find something else if women comprised the majority of players (it would just be that bad, I suppose).

    His logic is faulty. If men make up the majority of players, they're responsible for the majority of the drama (however he defines it). What he's really doing here is attempting to shift blame. It's a subtle put down.

    So, everyone on a premade guild run speaks on vent?

    I was guilded for years with people who never heard me speak. Since I'd speak up every few months (when something important came up), there were occasions when someone I'd known for years would hear me and say, "Omg, Palv's a girl!"

    Just because you group with guildies doesn't mean you hear them.

    I liked the OP link, quite tame.

    My favourite stereotype reversal is "Xbox girls get revenge" posted by collegehumor, which parodies male -> female trashtalking in FPS games.

    Link audio is not safe for work, sketch is a parody but contains quite heavy profanity.

In most cases girls are emotional drama queens using MMO's as an open field of battle against other women. More or less a personal problem, but guys are way cooler a lot of the time.

    Oh no you didn't ... oh yes you did!

    Sorry but your statement is full of drama bait , how ironic.
