Wow, lots on that list annoy me too. Trouble is, it can be said that I'm one of the annoyances on the list too.

I hope it all gets better for you.

It seems like a pretty all-inclusive list.

Converts. Yes, most definitely.

If it weren't for the fact that women are utterly excluded from the liturgy, I'd probably make the slide over to Orthodoxy. I find their theology much less morbid and more optimistic. Course, I'm not keen on the way they identify their religion with various Eastern European cultures either.

I'm confident your reasons wouldn't be objectively insane.

This has absolutely nothing to do with the thread, but after spending several seconds entranced by your amusing icon I would like to point out that he changes colors between one phase of "poopin" and the next.

I find this greatly amusing. That is all.

With one or two exceptions, isn't this the list of things that's always annoyed you? I have seriously read most of this before.

The "hippy/frat boy war" is a new one, as is D-Hart. And what did France do this time?

Of course they're all the same - my livejournal is for bitching about shit that doesn't matter. It's where I put the crap so I don't have it in my life.

I can understand the rest, but what has France ever done to you?

Do they need to do anything to me to be annoying?

They're France....shouldn't that be enough???

Oh France, so easy to pick on

Heh, I've been playing for five years and I'm finally doing the Hippy/Frat Boy war for the first time.

I'm the kind of anal-retentive person who must get the Order of the Silver Wossname, and must do it by doing all side-quests for the opposite side for the better rewards.

Needless to say, I'm not a fan.

I don't know if you've been to KoLWiki yet, but this may help ease the pain a bit. Also, if you use Firefox there are add-ons that keep a running account of hippies and frat boys killed.

Oh, I knew how to do it, although I've been tallying by hand - I'm also nearly done, now that I've stopped doing random other stuff and actually put a proper effort into finishing the damn thing.

Damn straight. Fuckin' France.

What's the dilly with Clark University? I've never even heard of them...

I was going to ask this, as it is the school I attend =P

No worries, I don't support it at all, heh.

What reasons wouldn't be objectively insane? I hope mine aren't...

(I apparently never got around to adding you as a lj friend. I think I'll fix that.)

I don't know what yours are.

In approximate order of importance (most to least):

1. Becoming Catholic never struck me as an appealing idea, whereas becoming Orthodox did, so I first looked into becoming Orthodox; now that I am Orthodox, I see no compelling reason to change, though I think if I were already Catholic, I probably would stay put.

2. I find arguments for papal supremacy (as more than just papal primacy) to be exceedingly unconvincing.

3. I think the Orthodox criticism of the use of the Filioque -- that adding it in was illicit -- makes a lot of sense.
