Does anyone else here look at someone's forum avatar when they're posting, and upon seeing that it's an Achura avatar or similar automatically think 'stupid noob, you're using one of the new races so your character is obviously way younger than mine, therefor you can't possibly know what you're talking about'?

I do all the time. Damned noob alts.

I don't look at the portraits much. That one guy that posts a lot with the floating eyes always catches my eye, but apart form that, doesn't really matter to me. What they write will be what I judge them on, not what their character portrait looks like.

Yes.
If i see a ! as their face, I assume they are stupid noobs.

Also applies to people without faces,(CI), minmatard with aviators, and umm... yea... >.> guys with hoods too.

Used to, but not anymore. The "asian" characters are fairly old by now.

The fact that achura are ****ing better than every other race ****es me off though.

I don't judge them, but I notice if they post in the same thread twice by their portraits, and I usually remember who they are in general by their signatures.

I assume everyone who starts their own thread is a 'stupid noob'. It's easier then going by the avatar or some arbitrary measurement such as character age.

I'm prejudiced against Homo Sapiens (Sapiens?lol) in general. Does that count as racism, too? Even when it's proven all the time?

If its any consolation, my main is nearly two years older than you are

Edit: also, I assume anyone whose character is older than mine is is an elitist snob who thinks they know everything about EVE, and feels that the developers should be beholden to their whims. Okay, that's a lie, but I figured while we were painting people with a broad brush I'd jump in too

I've had this portrait for...well, quite some time now, and it's never been refreshed. Ambulation will probably do me in, though.

Yes, i can confirm that i recieve much more flames, trolls, critizism or general disagreement when i post with my achura male, compared to the same things posted with a gallente female. This racism and sexual discrimination must stop Sad
