There is no need to make excuses and make it look like it had any other meaning. If I call someone "no brains", i don't mean "he doesn't consider all alternatives". lmao.
Of course you are welcome to your own opinion, all I ever said was "lol ok". and you took offense from those two words. People have their own reasons, whether they buy from AH or not or directly from sellers or the Line Marketplace. To generalize anyone as you did, because it doesn't fall in line with your own practices and belief is certainly a form of bigotry.
This is what is commonly known as a straw man argument, meaning to set up an argument similar to the opponents' then knock it down. I never contested the fact that I said people that bought normal stuff from the AH have no brains. I pointed out the opinions issue because you misdefined the word "bigot" that you used to describe me. I quote the Merriam-Webster dictionary: "Definition of bigot. :a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially one who regards or treats the members of a group (such as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance." Though I may dislike certain people and groups, I hate nobody. I strongly support my opinions, but when I am proven
wrong, I will retract or modify them. I take offense to your obvious implication that people who buy fashion are idiots. If anything on this thread is bigotry, then that is. I do agree that people have their own reasons to decide where to buy from, but since prices from the AH are hyperinflated, and OTM takes 5% off the top of the purchase as a usage fee, I believe that wise people avoid the AH aside from those exceptions previously mentioned. Now, I am not the issue here, Firestorm prices are, so please be quiet unless you have something to contribute to that specific topic.
