Well, you know, I control the internet. I actually have the switch! I could turn the internet off anytime I want. ******** Al Gore! I invented it.
I Hate Gaia (Give Your Personal Info for Gaia Cash Edition)
Oh hi, Gaia. I bet no-one reads this, but whatever.
I've seen Gaia do something quite disturbing this past month, and that is Referral Links to unscrupulous websites that supposedly grant Gaia Cash.
I've been opposed to Gaia Cash ever since it was implemented. Today, the Gaia Cash I've spent has only ever been a single $10 Giftcard given by a friend, the 25 Cash the system came with and the 40 from the Promageddon event.
The Evolving Items were another thing that irked me. The ones I own now were bought though hard-earned means AKA the old-fashioned way: selling off MCs after they've appreciated in value. Selling my old Kitsune Mask was a very hard decision, but it got me Inari's Beads which have a replacement head mask. And cheaper.
But then, the Cash Game items (from Gee Boi Turbo/Famestar/Midsummer Swirl/etc.) came. Not everyone could afford the games, so the items within have skyrocketed up to ridiculous levels, even rivaling the old MC standbys.
But when the little announcement popped up that the little Sponsor Offers that you avoid all over the internet was basically being whored out to children and/or unsuspecting teens who give out sensitive information just to get ahold of said Evolving Items/Cash Game stuff? Oh, was Jesus not amused.
