First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!

Why are you sighing? Did you read the article?

Don't ever think you have to justify your enjoyment of a hobby to anyone.

I don't really need your psychological wisdom. Unless your goal is to make me think twice before making a tongue in cheek post to point out a very interesting article.

I didn't post that to be sarcastic. I understand the aricle and your reference to it. My point is that a lot of people get that same message throughout the hobby, and it's a shame.

I think the sighs weren't over your post per se:

I see. I don't feel guilty about my hobby. It's my passion and I love it. I'm also happy to poke fun at my hobby once in a while. I was just being silly. The only important thing was the article, which I thought people might be interested in.

Oh!

My hypothesis is that Dom-Crap posted a link to that story about gamers solving a biology/medical problem, then removed it.

Gamers may NOT be useless but this ENTIRE post is useless.

I thought it would delete the entire thread if I deleted the first post. I guess not!

I've been pretty busy today, and I did not take the time to see if others had posted a link to the same article. So when someone pointed it out, I tried to delete the thread. I'll chalk this up as a BIG DOUBLE FAIL for me. What a horrible day. I think I'll crawl into a damp hole and go to sleep. Maybe tomorrow will be better...
