Good grief!

I'm not going to point at anyone in particular, but there have been not a few poor reactions to a particular podcast – biased towards hunters, mind you – that cracked wise about hunter vs mage blogs, and the alleged superiority of the former to the latter. It was a joke, in the same vein as you might get from "Click and Clack" on the "Car Talk" radio show (i.e. "You drive THAT to work? Put a paper bag over your head!"). But some people felt that mages were – for whatever reason – unfairly disparaged.

Anyone that feels that way might want to google "SITE:SITE_URL HUNTARD" for a subset of all WoW blogs that they enjoy to see just how many times they have failed to make the same objections to alleged unfairness.

It's not a pretty picture.

Now, we "huntards" don't take that seriously, either, unless the tone dictates so. We accept – as anyone should – that a joke is a joke and usually this sort is made out of affection. Many of you mage, lock, and druid bloggers have had your fun at our expense, and vice-versa. We all cackle a bit, vow "Next time, Gadget!", and move on. 

The great cycle of life continues.

Now, before anyone voices the objection, let me point out that this blog is not a hunter-specific blog, not even a "resource". The fact that the 'main' is a hunter does not change the fact that all classes currently have a home here, and we love them all – including my frost mage, who is awesome to play, by the way.

At any rate, that's all I wanna say on this.  One advantage of having one's own place to post is not having to post it multiple times at multiple blogs all saying the same thing, more or less.

And if it'll make you feel better, go ahead and call me a huntard. I'll get over it.

Lot of knots, lot of snags,

lot of holes, lot of cracks lot of crags.

Lot of naggin' old hags,

Lots of fools, lots of full scum bags.

Oh, it's such a drag, what a chore... oh your wounds are so full of salt.

Everything's a stress,

and what's more,

well it's all somebody's fault.
