WoW.com Farms BlogAzeroth

That title sure as hell got you.

I can't say I'm the best at keeping up with things on the internet, but thanks to Velver keeping better tabs on this monstrous sea of words and pictures, I saw that today's Breakfast Topic at WoW.com was distinctly similar to my Shared Topic suggestion at BlogAzeroth.com, posted four days prior.

Now, considering I talk about WoW a lot with people and read much of the blogs, there has, at some point, been a post like this, mentioning meetings with other WoW players IRL, perhaps on someone else's blog months or years ago. I was hoping that, in my post to BlogAzeroth, the topic would be more at the forefront and would warrant another wonderful group activity in writing.

WoW.com was tipped off, perhaps not by anyone involved with BlogAzeroth (they didn't even cite BA at all), but I'd like to give the benefit of the doubt here and say it's all part of collective consciousness. You put an idea out there, it'll eventually spread like wildfire without word of mouth or visual musing, but just by the coincidental synapses of this silly fucking universe.

It's not the first time an idea of mine, or one that I planted somewhere, was manifested somewhere else by someone else. It comes with writing and batting ideas around.

I'm still going to write it. I guess I just would have liked to have seen the community have at it first. Yes, I am a bit prideful, Anne. Gimme a bit to calm down. Perhaps you should cite your sources so I don't have a fucking aneurysm. I REQUIRE MLA FORMAT.

Darn you and your "name dropping that I know in-game, and makes me spooky-fied"

First, it was one iron nut, now Velver? ! It's like our friendly little backwater server is getting famous or something. :)

"fuck your mother" is probably the best way to respond to internets hax. ;)

I don't care about or really read wow.com :)

I go through the Shared Topics forum once in a while, draft saving shared topic ideas I like and could see myself writing about. Yours is one of them, though I might add a small twist of my own to it. Don't worry! ^^

WoW.com has a history of doing that - it's a large reason why I stopped reading that site altogether. So, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if that's what happened.
