...sometimes it's easy to forget that the board is largely dominated by a tweenage majority. Most of the time there is nothing wrong with that either. Then you get the types that see someone they percieve to be attractive and begin to fangirl over him to the point of it becoming a dangerous obsession.
I really don't get it. I mean I was never like this when I was younger; oh sure I thought that Orlando Bloom was good-looking when he took the role of Legolas in Lord of The Rings but even then I was not suddenly and profoundly 'in love' with the guy.
Really though that isn't the point of this post; we've all had friends like these people (I know I certainly have) and I don't see much harm in their little obsession provided they realize that nothing will ever happen (for one thing, this Grant guy is probably about 3 times older than them - just guessing here, I haven't even found the video that they're all swooning over yet).
No; my point is - what the hell does how sexy/hot Grant is and how jealous people are have to do with The Sims?
I thought we weren't allowed to post off topic??
Now obviously it is a bit of fun (or at least that's how it started - with a few simmers commenting that he looked good and him actually leaving a comment about it was funny) but since then these 'Grant is HOTTT!!!111ONE' threads have been appearing all over the place - and it's getting annoying.
Once again; something that has nothing to do with TS3 is being left on the board. I'll say though that it's refreshing to see the mods doing their job and starting to crowd control by directing them to one thread but in the space of barely a few hours the General Discussion forum is being flooded with this rubbish.
Sure it's about a Guru and like I said, his reaction was funny so I can see why the Gurus might be leaving it there to tease him, but an off topic thread is an off topic thread - something the Gurus conveniently have a zero tolerance policy on when it suits them :/
