Paul Elam has decided to waste his time debating a gamer. I would have written that as a comment over at AVfM, but Paul Elam’s explaining that he can put the game issue to bed as far as AVfM is concerned after the debate told me it was pointless. Regardless of that, what will happen when the debate is over is that both sides will declare victory. Only a handful of people might be convinced one way or another.
The problem with Paul Elam’s reasoning about this debate is that the gamers aren’t going away unfortunately. They keep threatening to leave the MRM alone. What the gamer said in the link above about Paul Elam easily reads like, “If you don’t start listening to us gamers, we’re going to leave. Seriously we’re going to leave. We’re going to leave anytime now. Come on. Start listening to us or else we’re going to leave soon. Really we’re going to leave.” I wish they would leave. They think we’re a bunch of angry losers. Fine, then go away, gamers. We want you to go away. But they won’t go away. This is because they don’t want to let go of what they think is a captive audience to sell their scam to.
Unfortunately, the only way the gamers are leaving is at gunpoint.
