I have finally decided to voice my disapproval/dislike for a certain review.
Whilst I am typing this, I am still trying to work out exactly how to word this post, without making myself look silly or as bad as the reviewer.
Maybe the best way is to list the issues I have with it, and then, once others have read it, they can comment as to whether or not I am making more of this than I should.
1. Frogs - for me this a little type casting/stereotypical phrase to to refer to the French. If I were French, I would feel a bit aggrieved at the use of this word.
2. Wogs - Very much a racist word these days and really has no place in a review for a war game. I know in years gone by it was not seen as a racist word, but that was a long time ago.
3. The first paragraph, he seems to want to do a little bit of British/English bashing (I am not too sure if he can differentiate between British and English!), which really does not bother me, but he seems to think that he knows that enough of us British/English feel superior to everyone else. If that is how he feels because of possible conversations with British/English people or by other means, then I would love to know who from, as I have not yet come across anyone in my country who feels how he has described
In case you have not noticed yet, he also seems to have had a slight mix up with words. He constantly refers to the "English" in this paragraph. Unfortunately, this is wrong, as it should have been the "British", since the Act of Union in 1707 brought together the Kingdoms of Scotland and England.
Not that I give a shit as far as how big the British Empire was, but he has also shown that he does not like the fact that the British (not English) Empire was the largest Empire by 1920, and that this is a claim mainly placed in British history books.
What has he got against the British? Why disrespect the French and use a Racist term in a game review?
My conclusion of this man is that he is just full of hot smelly air which comes out of his arse, and if I get banned from CSW Social for this post, then I really do not give a shite, as I have had to air my grievance over this awful bloody review.
