I'm Stropp, I've been playing computer games for many years now, and have played perhaps more than my fair share of MMORPGs since about 2000.
My current game of choice is World of Warcraft, developed by Blizzard Entertainment, which I have been playing pretty consistently since October 2005. My main character is Stropp, an Orc Hunter adventuring on the Khaz'Goroth server with my ever faithful pets by my side. Wellâ€¦ faithful when I feed them. I'd hate to think of what they'd start chewing on if I stopped feeding them.
I'm not monogameous though. I enjoy a bit of polygamey on the side, pardon the puns, and I will probably talk about a few of these games too, when I get around to them. Sorry about the pun... not really.
In real life, I am a Software Engineer, living in the Adelaide metropolitan area. Adelaide is situated in sunny South Australia, which I'm told is the dryest state, in the dryest continent on the Earth. I've been professionally developing software since 1984.
I have a fairly liberal comment policy on this site. You can say pretty much what you want to say and how you want to say it. However, while comments that are abusive, or loaded with swearing, will be moderated on a case by case basis, they are likely to be deleted. In my opinion abuse doesn't add value, and usually hinders the discussion.
I will not accept spam, and have an aggressive spam catcher. I also have the comment moderator turned on. It will hold certain comments for me to moderate. If you want to bypass the moderator, take note of the following rules, the automatic moderator will hold the following:
* Comments with more than 2 out-going links.
* Comments with common swear words.
* Comments that have the appearance of spam.
Please note that I will delete comments that have no content or relevance to the post for which they are intended. Some webmasters will add junk comments simply to trackback to their own website. This is considered a bit rude. If you want a trackback, at least *try* to add some value to the discussion.
Other than that, please feel free to comment, rate, and enjoy the site. Oh, and if you belong to a social networking group like Digg. Please consider voting for me.
I take my privacy pretty seriously, and I guarantee to take your privacy seriously as well. On no account will I sell or make available to a third party any information that you give me. I hate spammers and won't give your details to them.
This of course doesn't apply to any personal data that you might give to a third party when you leave this site by clicking on any of the links. It also doesn't apply if I am forced to release your information by a court or some other act of government legislation.
