Interesting. I wasn't aware that the term "Salty" had origins from the early 20th century. Especially since it's a relatively new slang for gaming and the internet.

How's that ironic?

 

Irony has been ruined ever since the early 90's and Allanis Morisette her song Ironic.

I guess it wasn't ironic, it's more of a coincidence. It's also a coincidence that issm was in a Myoko this morning and I put some shells into him from my Atlanta lol. He is a very good player and was able to angle out of that situation and went on to lead his team to a win. He's very good.

Ah, 72man raids. So much fun raiding PoTime. This was when people learned how long a "raid" really lasted. Gonna go burn 3-4 hours on PoInnovation, then kill Earthen Council if they're up. Healers chain full on MT, OT be ready to swap. Dps make sure to watch cleave and AoE. Bards prepare songs. That game took quite a lot of coordination, but was well worth it if you could win a drop.

I'm actually the person that introduced the term Fail and Failure to the online gaming community. It happens to be true.

They didn't get spam quite right. Back in the old days, 1970s, before the internet we had bulletin boards and chat rooms. 

 

people would quote Monty Python a lot, and every one in a while someone would start the Spam skit. Others would pick it up, and eventually spam was the only word on the screen, and you had to wait for the whole thing to stop to get back to your conversation. 
 

 

it was very annoying

Always did wonder what those terms came from, since I do tend to use a few of them occasionally.

I'm very much sure of it :P.
