How strict is that "participants must be 18" rule?

(Not that I'm much good for photoshop, but whatever)

So wait, the point of this contest is to make sure Gemini never releases the translation patch?

Eh, if it's "99% done" and he never releases it, then it was actually never 99% done.

And how would the contest accomplish that purpose?

If he doesn't release it, or delays release (which he has done), it's solely his choice. If he wants to throw away his hard work over trivial internet bickering (which is one of the few inevitabilities of the internet), that's his choice. Nothing we will do can change that, believe it or not. Licking his boots isn't going to do anything, and neither will reviling him. The latter is just funnier.

Because of us.

I hope we get people thanking us, as they should.

Were it not for our bitchslapping that attention whore, he'd still be waving his e-penis like a helicopter at the internet as a whole. And in a way, he's trying to. He didn't even give us credit in his post!

Man, this was a nice, week-long dose of funny.

Sheeple fail so hard, though.
First, Gemini's "the patch is released" post says this:
Quote:
Well, I believe this is where the story about the delay dies forever and never comes back. Now go and find another way to start a new drama, you’re welcome.

Oh, thanks.
Wait, the story and drama you started? Have you forgotten the part where you said that the patch was delayed, have a nice and flaming day, I'm sick of your childish behavior?

And yet the comments show that apparently nobody remembers this, since they're all like "Haha, nice joke man!" "I knew it all along!" "You just owned the whole internet!"
I guess all it takes is dangling something shiny, huh?

The people who react negatively to the satirical edge thrown in here see what they want to see. I'm seeing comments like "a three year old throwing a hissy fit" and "whining about free stuff." I think they miss the point that none of us really care about the patch, that it's not a foot-stamping reaction to the fact that the patch might have been kept out of our hands. Also, people fail at detecting satire.

The whole thing is a fascinating case study, though in what I'm not sure.
