A blog about....well about....something. Really.
Flynn's a** Is Like Halley's Comet
...except on a much tighter return schedule.

Yup, they've admitted that Flynn\'s a** will be returning to the Cash Shop and Flub Cerge.

I believe there's an error in that FAQ: they typed "a lot of users" like it when it should be "the Gaia Online, Inc. accountants and investors" are the ones who like it. The users can go pound sand.

The reason I've stuck with Gaia so long isn't just the people. If it was, I'd be long gone, as I'm on my third social group here. The rest quit.

I've stuck with it because of the economy. Because I could work at it and become successful. Because with some basic cleverness and reason I could make the system work for me. Or at least work in tandem with it.

With Flynn's a**, it's pointless. As long as they keep selling essentially unlimited amounts of gold, no way of making a limited amount of gold (zOMG, Booty Grab, etc.) will be able to compare. Work as hard as you want, unless you're a vendor with high risk tolerance, you're simply outclassed by those with money to throw at Gaia.

Now I ask you this: where's the fun in that?

If I'm going to spend my fun money for on experiences, I expect them to be, you know, actually fun. Not just rental on pixels, most of which I don't care for anymore. (And it is rental. Read the TOS.)

If I'm going to be a "big name" somewhere just for spending money, there are real life organizations that throw benefits and the like. Where I could meet real life people who donate to the same cause, contacts for improving my real life.

No one outside of Gaia gives two damns about how many Gaian pixels you have rented. No one.

And damn few people here care any more either.
