    Economy Police

    Do you think SE shouldve stepped in to influence the direction of the economy on FFXI before this RMT inflation got out of hand?

    I was thinking that is they wanted to they couldve duped items a long time ago and placed them on the AH undercutting prices until they were reasonable. The prices of good IMO were reasonable early 2004.


    Would they have been able to discourage RMT if they did that?

    who cares what they should have done, its too late to do anything about WHAT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED.

    Once you can get your hands on a flux capacitor and some weapons, come back to me. I have only done this once before.

    Bruce Lee.. best freaking artist ever. I say artist (not martial artist), because that's what he was. Purely an artist. Some asshole challenged him to a fight when his wife was in labor. He refused to fight, but the guy provoked him. The guy swung, and Bruce just laid him out in 2 seconds.

    Bruce > Vin, Chuck, and Jack combined.

    Err, I think you NEED to say Martial Artist, otherwise if you call him an Artist alone you get the image of him kicking someones ass with a paintbrush. There's a reason they put Martial before Artist you know =/

    I would agree that artist is a misnomer. Artist gives the connotation that although he had moves, he didn't have martial art skills to back them up. This is simply untrue.

    (I would make up a random Bruce Lee fact, but I choose not to go there.)

    You're absolutely right, you two joining within a couple months of each other and you posting 2609 times more often (Usually with some useless shit like whining about making green ribbons to level cloth or watching fafnir fights from the ledge) make you far, far wiser glasshoppa.
