I was just poking around cboard and in someone's signature it said "all hail John Carmack". Oddly, I was taken back, and after a little while somewhat scared. Why would we want to hail John Carmack? I mean, yes, he's an awesome developer and he deserves a lot of respect for that, but why would you hail him? I know the sig wasn't meant to be taken with utmost seriousness, however do people actually believe, on any level, that more skillfull people are actually better people? Carmack deserves a pat on the back and some free beer, but not to be hailed. I know this thread is just, off, and maybe it's only to help me with myself, but the dumbest things throw me off sometimes. Is anyone else here just screwed up, other than me.
and just for the record, I don't feel like not being taken seriously on this one. If you have something extremely stupid to say, pm me, but don't taint my potentially good conversation in public.
