    Start is probably seen as more "positive" than pause. I dunno, I'm guessing.

    Master System did the pause button the right way.

    Was thinking something like that, or maybe it's a relic from arcade machines that didn't have a pause.

    And what about "back" or "select"? When are they ever used to go back or to select anything.

    Plenty of games on the NES and the Gameboy used the select button to select game modes, or to scroll through the menu (althogh sooner or later they realised people would rather scroll using up and down on the d-pad).

    Also, how would you enter the Konami code without Select?

    This one - no idea. Anything financial that is more complicated than "If i buy this do i have to eat beans on toast for the rest of the month" is beyond me.

    I have quite an impressive list of blocked people, and I can't remember blocking anyone except the person I accidentally added just now. It's not automatic is it? Be a big enough bellend and the forum just spits you out.

    That's nothing, it says I'm ignoring 4 people but my list is empty!

    I've been tempted to ignore people, but it seems a bit ignorant (probably a better word for it). Even if people are trolling, they generally contain some valid points. It's just a shame they tend to ruin those valid points by stating them as fact outright then insulting anyone who holds a differing opinion.

    This entire post is fact and if you disagree you're an Aardvark Fellater.

    I don't like thinking bad thoughts about people. Better that I just don't see them.

    You've rubbed off on a lot of the forum. It's not hard to find someone willing to call you a retard or a downer these days.

    Does anyone else get a queer thrill of geek joy at tidying their inbox? I've just been labelling and setting rules in my gmail. Far more satisfying than it should be. Order to chaos.

    Counterpoint - there are more retards and downers on the forum these days too.
