Not everybody, obviously, but there are enough of that description posting here bitching about things they've no right to complain about that I'm becoming increasingly confirmed in my intent to never, ever involve myself in any sort of "writers group" in person. There's a word in German that has no equivalent in English, and it comes to mind every time I read these threads: Backpfeifengesicht.
1. Many of us are 'creatives', however MOST of we 'creatives' do appreciate the amazing efforts by the L&L team and our obligations as beta testers - contribute if we can and accept we play by L&L's rules in the beta - The customer is most definitely not always right in that scenario.
2. Backpfeifengesicht - roughly, 'a face in need of a fist'. Now I'm a non-violent person but occasionally I do say FFS and bash my head on the desk to subdue the urge to reach through the web, grab someone by the scruff of the neck and yell 'Are you f... serious?'
