    New builders who introduce their work as better than anything else on the blog, I have read this twice in the last year and it really bugs me, an air of arrogance beyond belief  confidence is one thing but this Grrrr

    Oh this one is always funny. I remember a guy from around the time Mason was sole host of the CB group. He posted a mage build whose big gimmick was grinding enchanting for 100% destruction spell cost reduction. In his build he viciously bashed every other mage on the site. The response from the community was equally vicious but hilarious.

    I think I vaguely remember that... it kind of made me sad, but at the same time what else can you expect? It takes a special person to walk on to a site, bash its members thoroughly, and expect to receive a hearty welcome.

    Even I am not quite THAT clueless xD

    The backlash was truly something to behold. I will say that noob had confidence. It takes a lot of guts to call every mage build ever made here shit, while hailing enchantment grinding as the end all be all way of playing a mage.

    When people defend their work tooth and claw before admit that something needs changing, even when everyone else agrees it needs changing.

    I don't know if I would call that confidence. I think it's more cowardly to bash everyone else's instead of looking at other people's builds.

    Ummm...when someone apostrophises plurals...ahem!   :)

    I'd probably complain about 'circle jerking' (also: yuck!) and Sky-Bronies but I don't know what they are; at least in relation to blogging.
