ODGSniper, a fellow veteran discovered he has Prostate Cancer.  Please take two minutes to watch the video and if you can, help do something good.

Please change the subject line. Comparing something that annoys you in a game to something that kills people in real life is (edit) clueless and rude. 

Edit: “Yeah it’s too bad your loved one died to cancer. You know: some people also think carriers are a cancer in this video game I play. They think carriers will probably kill that too and that’s got them down. But never mind that. I’m going to ask them to donate.”

It’s part social commentary, part attention grabber.  

It has annoyed me in the past people calling CVs air Cancer or what have you.  This is my chance to take the term and use it for some good to help someone who really has it.  You obviously didn’t take the two minutes to watch the video which you could have done in the time that it took you to post your comment.

Comparing someone’s life threatening condition to something that annoys you in a game is pathetic - it’s more like half using their life/death struggle as a “clever” way to get his dig in on a game.  That’s nothing short of disrespectful towards the person whose life is threatened.

Completely disagree. Thats why we each have our own opinions I guess.

It's almost like people want to be offended by everything rather than looking at the purpose of the post.

You just added more validity to calling something about a game cancer. 

In the time it took you to be hypocritical you could have watched other videos of others that are going to die of cancer and need help instead of treating it like a joke.

Perhaps you shouldn't speak for someone who's more than capable of speaking for themselves.  It is highly likely Zoup has run this idea past the person who's suffering prostate cancer and has his approval to do so.

Let us know if the operation to remove the stick from your posterior is successful, okay?

How the bloody hell am I treating it like a joke by taking the time to make a video pushing out a gofundme page for a fellow veteran who has prostate cancer?

Just like you had the right to be offended by mine while trying to claim we should try to be less offended.  But I’m not the one making death by cancer a joke yet you defend it.

I work at a cancer center. People deal with it differently but some days it reallly hits you harder than others. People use it too liberally

How did I make it a joke?  It’s just a joke that I’m helping someone cope with their financial needs brought on by this horrible disease.

No, I am a big enough adult to see that there is a truly kind purpose to the post. To help someone.   You know, the guy who actually has cancer.   I don't let words offend me to pieces because it was quite the right way to ask for help. Look at the purpose. Don't get lost in the way you feel it should have been worded.

This is very true.  Some use gallows humor, some don’t.  And I wish I could help everyone at your location, but I’m doing what I can to help one person.

“Hey! Sick of CV cancer in WoWS! Here’s a video of someone who has cancer and needs help”. Your immature attempt to get a dig in on carriers by using someone’s life/death struggle as your prop in doing so is sad.  

Ask for help without trivializing cancer that kills countless loved ones as even remotely on the same level as carriers in a video game that you don’t like. 

Which is ironic cause he actually likes Carriers. I whole heartedly disagree with his opinion on them, but at least he is here trying to HELP someone.     What have you done today to assist your fellow man?

I like the carrier rework.

I like helping people in need.

Put your money where your big mouth is and donate to Kevin’s gofundme.  Put up or shut up.  Tired of hearing you.

Making a joke about someone’s struggle with a life threatening situation is helping those who have that condition? How so?
