I read a Topic this week (Stuck at Grade 3) that crossed my eyes and cause me to reflect on the lack of self discipline and flawed potty training of some of are more accomplished members. The author asked for advise on how to Improve his path of matriculation and an ez-route to advancement. Up jumped the 👿, the Duty Experts Provided a continual stream of How To; “Card Sharp”the system.
“FARMING” was the standard responce of the many Usual Suspect. They opened their Trick Bag and Regurgitated how to beat the IF FlrHour/Xp System “in writing”!
I reflected back on my shock that night and could not understand why the parental moral lesson not to lie or cheat has been lost to our Younger generations. Is it nurture or nature?
The following morning I dug thru my Library and retrieved an old topic that I had posted years ago, when Farming was called “Grinding”, with a bit of editing, Here it is;
2016 MaxSez; Grinding/Farming Topic:
“MaxSez: I’ve read a lot of Topic on this Forum, only a few have made me want to vomit! I could not believe me eye when I stumbled on the Questions on “XP GRINDING”!
Here’s my take on these impure thought & those multiple Supportive Commenters. They gave aid and encouragement to the easily influenced do’er;
“True Aviator/Gammers are moral men & woman! They don’t abide cheaters, liars, charlatans or phonies. “Grinding is Cheating! “…
Grinding , in my opinion is not the only way to get on the Leader Board or Big Kid Server now, it’s because of the abominable 90 day rule which decuments your hard earned efforts daily, not a Just Cause!
So the Suspects advocate beating the system by their short eye’d method! Be a scoundrel and a Grinder, alluding to the fact that Everybody Body does “It”is a “Bald Face Lie”!
Grinder numbers are an intentional FRAUD and indicate one’s weak amoral, discombobulated mental process, lack of integrity & low self esteem! It’s Dishonorable, Do they &you know the meaning of the that word?
It had to be said, take it or leave it, the truth hurts!” Amen…EndSermon…
( Errata; Back in the day, when Peer Pressure flurried here, that’s before IF Forum got PC, there was Honor! The old gang of Nobel Men used the “Report User” Button frequently to aid the “Watchers”!
“I exclaim nay Demand in parting! “Revive dat “Report Button”; Correct the Count Algorithm! On demeaner and honesty Watch how quickly a Button Push & Peer Pressure; an honest assessment can reshapes the IF Universe!”)
Yes this is the real END till next time! Beep Beep, that it Folks…
