In fact, I will stop answering questions altogether and when you bug me about it, I will ignore you, and see how YOU would like that, how about it?!
Actually - I don't think I'd care very much. You don't want to play unless everyone else is standing on their heads around you - don't play. I'm not gonna stand on my head to keep appeasing your desire for immediate responses.

As for why a person may be seen as logged in and not post, as usual the only explanation you see is the one you are fixated on. I don't have to explain myself to you. If you wanna think it's all about you, sure. Go ahead. Don't bother considering other explanations. I don't have to explain my life to you because, if you haven't realized yet, participation in games is completely voluntary, and you only have an obligation to post regularly if you have the game now. So have a think if you get bored ignoring me.

I want the threads to be active. What's even the point of reviving them if you have no intention of keeping them active?

Also, if you're that busy that you can't even take five minutes to post, then why do you even log on? So you can stare at the forum homepage while twiddling your thumbs?

Go on, provide me a decent explanation on why you are so busy you cannot post, but are still able to log on despite being oh-so-busy.....

Which, I'm sure you understand, is unreasonable.

Oh, when you grow as bored as I am now, you'd be singing a different tune, you will. ^^

Actually, yeah. It gives me joy to visit the Downs and keep up with the threads. It lifts my mood when I visit in the morning, even though I only have a couple minutes to spare for it. It lifts my mood when I check in after a long day of work and studying and see what's happening, even if my brain is too muddled to contribute meaningfully. And it absolutely ruins that mood when you keep making unreasonable demands of people for your immediate gratification. So I will continue to open the Downs when I can to read the threads and twiddle my thumbs, and I will continue to post when I wish to post and not when you demand it, and I will continue to take joy from my daily lurking. And if you want to spare yourself disappointment, please realize that there are many reasons for people to behave the way they do, and precious few have anything to do with you personally.

Well, my joy is to have people play those games. You take away my joy, I take away yours. I believe it's a fair trade.

And guess what? Simply realizing that won't spare me any disappointment, because I thrive on replies and thus will remain disappointed that there are none, regardless of the reason for it.


Again, what's the point of even reviving this game if you're just gonna let it die again?

And now, let's drop this and continue the game.
