Peaceful Protest

   Posted by: SwineParrot   in PigBird's Cage

Get Up, Stand Up!

I am blogging here with my netbook chained to a forum post I recently put up. It is very difficult to type with chains hanging off your body, so please excuse the rough edges of this blog entry.

But I am chained to this forum post here in the Game Discussion Forum for a very important reason!

I refuse to allow the tyrannical leadership to continue in the world of forum posts! My demands are not only simple and just, they are also very reasonable:

I demand that the wait time to repost be lowered from 60 seconds to 25 seconds.

You have to understand: I love this game, but I lose my mind when I read this after posting in the forums:

“You cannot post a new thread or reply this quickly. Please wait 53 more seconds.”

I am a very busy and important person – both in Real Life, and (more importantly), in Dark Warriors as well! I do not have time to wait 60 seconds for me to be allowed to post again.

So here I sit.  Chained to a Forum Post.  Protesting current conditions so that my children can post in a better world.  I will not let “da man” beat me down.

Too often my limited time on this game requires quick attention to forum posts, and in an effort to keep the forums alive, I try to give a quick, but necessary and helpful (packed full of seriousness and light on the sarcastic side),  comment.  This is foiled by the 60 second wait time!

I understand the need to stop spamming posts, and I agree and accept that need.  That is why I am proposing a 25 second wait time.  Rarely do I read that wait message when it says less than 25 seconds.  I feel 35 seconds is enough time to leave one of my thoughtful, yet efficient pearls of wisdom for all to read.

So Get Up! Stand Up!  Stand Up For Your Right!

Join me, brothers and sisters, and force change!  If Egypt can overthrow a government, we can reduce the wait time to post! I have a 12 Step Plan to effectively initiate this change and will lay it all out for you now…

Opps, that is my 60 Second Buzzer!  I can post again in the forums!  I would love to chat, but I have some posting to do! What was I talking about again?… Oh well, must not have been important… Catch you on the flip side!

Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: don’t give up the fight!

Preacher man, don’t tell me,
Heaven is under the earth.
I know you don’t know
What life is really worth.
It’s not all that glitters is gold;
‘Alf the story has never been told:
So now you see the light, eh!
Stand up for your rights. come on!

Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: don’t give up the fight!
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: don’t give up the fight!

I must say. I find this rather annoying as well. I’m important too!

Very entertaining, and thoroughly enjoyed it. As i sit here trying to figure out the need for the recaptcha spam filter, I can totally relate!

End oppression now! free the internet!
