    why bother spelling properly on the internet when you're not getting marked for it. the only time i do do an okay job on spelling is when in fact i am writing an essay.

    Wow. That is quite possibly the worst logic I have ever heard in my life.

    He's only a young guy - give him a little slack.



    Honestly, I don't see why a gaming section would be relative to AI though.

    I think we need a section for gayming since playing anything other than first-person shooters on a PS3 makes us "feel homosexual."



    I luvs me some homosexual feeling games.

    The trouble is that a lot of gaming will be done using Bootcamp/Windows. Any Mac gaming discussion will likely be limited to World of Warcraft. It'll only get a new post every year when one good game gets a crappy port (seriously where the hell is Gears of War already?) and people will be complaining how it took so long, how it costs twice as much and how it's not as stable or looks nearly as good as the Windows counterpart and why none of Apple's consumer models can play the latest games even close to consumer PCs.



    Until Apple make a proper gaming Mac, I doubt there's much point to dedicating a forum section to it.

    Wrong! Grade: F (Gameing?)



    You also get an "F" on your reply.

    I think general discussion serves it well enough. There really aren't that many threads about video gaming, particularly if you discount the ones patronized by despondent youth in search of an Apple-made commodity tower.

    The main reason not to have a gaming forums is that the post rate would be too low. Let gaming take over the Apps forum and then make a new forum for it.

    You are getting "marked" for it. When we communicate with each other we judge each other's intelligence based on what we say (or, in this case, write) to each other. If someone is able to do this in an intelligent and intelligible way they become someone we listen to or who we respect in some way.



    If the only reason you might want to communicate effectively with others is to get an external reward, people are wise to completely ignore everything about you.

    This logic is backwards. The young must be instructed, both in spelling and in how to speak to others.

    Yeah, Gaming into 3 sections: PC vs Consoles vs Mac, Games, and Gaymes.

    Unfortunately this does not explain the continuing appeal (to some people) of Brittney (spelling?) Spears... \

    Yes, it clearly is a growing social problem. We need to instill some "Say no to hackintosh PCs running OS X" and "Friends don't let friends try and get a powermac/mac pro tower and try and somehow jam in some bullsh1t looking neon glowing PC parts".
