"Community Manager"
Basically a glorified Forum Moderator that is connected to Blizzard Developers via a long leash. Like one would find on a dog. A dog however, is slightly more helpful when it comes to tech support and customer service.

Blizzard CM's are known for several things:

1. Canned PR responses.
2. Crappy Logic.
3. Unprofessional, biased moderation of behavior.
4. Razor-thin egos.
5. Followed by a legion of fanbois screaming as if the Beatles have regrouped and decided to devote the bulk of their time together sitting at computers, shepherding vast sums of the biggest morons the gaming community has ever seen, around a poorly maintained and operated message board for a company that makes more money than Europe (the continent, not the band).

Cm's will request positive feedback, in a thread full of complaints posted just inches above fifteen to twenty threads full of said requested feedback. Those positive examples will go forever untouched by said CM. Pointing this fact out, will also be ignored.

If you piss off a CM personally, they will decide to actually give a damn about insults -as a forum rule- long enough to ban you or close your thread. You can tell people to drop dead on every page leading up to that point but, don't insult a CM, their feelings actually matter.

Often times, they'll give a "reason" such as: "This topic is old, if you need to talk about it, post a new thread."
If that logic didn't give you an immediate aneurysm, you may have been born on Krypton.

CM's technical know-how is highly suspect, like the "surgical skills" of a guy working out of his sister's apartment in the Bronx or a Best Buy Geek Squad employee.
All problems are solved by:
1. Deleting your WTF folder. (Called so do the reaction most feel when told that, doing so will solve a problem caused by AT&T's network hub.)
2. Power Cycle your modem.
3. Ping your connection and post it.
If these don't work, try doing them again.
If that doesn't work..try doing them again.

Blizzard CM's are witty too. They like to waste their allotted three valuable posts per annual quarter, by being productive and clever in threads like:
~ If You Could Verbally Suck Off Drysc in a Thread, Which Will Immediately Dissolve into Staggeringly Unfunny Random Crap, Forum Fads and Ancient Memes, Would You Please do it Here. ~

Blizzard Cm's have decided long ago that the Offical Blizzard boards were going to suck and blow harder than Tera Patrick caught in a hurricane.
the place is a joke. Trolls, fanbois and idiots dominate and the CM's don't care.

Any criticism leveled at a CM is immediately cut off at the source and one is directed to wowcmfeedback@blizzard.com.
This is without a doubt the biggest load of transparent crap a CM can drop in a thread.
Simply put anyone who believs this email is going to be read by anyone important is an idiot. The CM's are so bad and so unprofessional that the influx of complaints must be beyond belief and they haven't flushed these turds yet. Your email gets sent to a special inbox where the CM's can have a good chuckle before continuing being impotent figure heads who wait for a random fanboy to make up an excuse for Blizzard's regular bullshit, simply quote it and say, "Yeah, what this guy said!"

At this point CM's post once a week just see the inevitable wave of sycophantic tools show up and agree with them for simply having blue font. It gets bad to the point of self parody. Never mind, that a CM is Blizzard employee who is too inept to actually do anything of value, like a hype man for a video game developer.
Blizzard CM means "community manager" but the only thing these inept fucksticks "manage" to do with any competence, is fuck the place up with their apathetic bullshit.

Pigheaded, ignorant sheep-minded fools who refuse to admit that games have improved in the decade since Final Fantasy VII was released. Worship an overhyped video game because it is fashionable to do so. Also tend to target Final Fantasy VI and VIII as the popularity driven trend of hate.

Any attempt to improve or advance the stale, trite formula of: "Stand in a line, pick fight/magic/Item from a menu and wait.
-Or, moving past interface/designs that only existed due to hardware limitations-
are met with fear, irrational rage, insults and a refusal to accept change or improvement.

Immune to logic, common sense, counter arguments or objective, even handed thought.
Final Fantasy VII fankids want Final Fantasy VII over and over with graphical improvements only. They are also arrogant enough to define the entire series by superficial means like "being turn-based".
Nothing will ever be good enough because they don't want it to be and don't care how ignorant and stupid they look.

Used to describe the final moments of a given event, or situation where change is still a possibility.

Right before a deadline.
I procrastinated all night and now, in the 11th hour, I need to work my ass off to finish this report moments before it is due.

World Of Warcraft Community Manager (Moderator)

Blizzard CM's are already a barely functioning, feckless component of the poorly run and managed, official WoW message boards. If you could single out any one that makes the miserable corporate chaff look sparkling by comparison, it would be Bornakk.

Most are already, biased, unprofessional, snarky, fanboi nerds with mod privileges but, still manage to accidentally stumble back-asswards into doing their jobs once of twice a year.

Not Bornakk. Bor has decided to reduce his existence to that of a forum troll who can ban.

Abusing his questionably given power by becoming a bully, an unfunny douchebag and all around unhelpful, annoyance. He is a blemish, that stands out on Blizzard's already blemish-ridden face.
He is also notoriously arrogant, stupid and dense. Repeatedly missing the point of any message leveled at him, almost to the point of seemingly concerted effort and, refusing to accept even the slightest criticism.

He's like a self centered teenager who has been given authority.

Famous for spamming the CM feedback email in place of facing an argument.

Easily done in by simple logic, Bornakk ignores all but one or two posts in a sea of counterpoints, to reply with nothing more than sarcasm, flamebait or, a reply so dense and irrelevant that the original point may have actually earned frequent flyer miles.
Blizzard CM's are a waste of space.

Bornakk is a waste of a CM position.

"Finally, a messageboard you aren't banned from!!"
~ Which is good, becuase these guys can't survive anywhere else.
Says a lot about the personalities of the users doesn't it?

"We know how hard it is, being an unlikeable shithead, in a world that values social interaction regardless of the format.
We know, that the internet is great place to unwind and show everyone what a disgusting cocksucker you really are.
Come on in, we'll give you hugs and, tell you you don't suck, regardless of what reality says."

Basically, a virtual daycare center for gaming's most anti-social clowns.

If you could imagine the biggest loser, virgin for life, pussy stereotypes, they would be gnet users.

Impotent kids and, man-children bragging about being unlikable chodes in games.

Basically, newfags for the gaming set.

Do you live in a basement and hate yourself?
Do you think being a dick is cool?
Is "fag" your best insult?

You have a place here.

AKA, BVTW Syndrome.
The most common example, is My Immortal, which is considered to be the worst fanfiction ever produced and, may have in fact, existed since the dawn of time. Some believe it to be one of Nyarlathotep's 999 forms.
It is also commonplace on free form roleplaying message boards.

The disturbingly common practice of writing Harry Potter-based fanfiction or creating HP-based characters that are, for purposes of the female writer's fantasy, bisexual for other "hawt Hogwarts guys" and, on occasion, situationally "hawt" for the writer's alter ego, female main character.

...Oh and they're also VAMPIRES.

Bad HP slash writers (oxymoron?) LOVE vampires.

People who suffer from BVTW Syndrome:

Any combination of: Ron, Harry, Draco and Snape fucking in the Forbidden Forest.
Goth anything
Hot Topic
F-bomb dropping Dumbledore
Gun toting Voldemorts

Hogwart's boarding school Dress Code.
Vampires that have fangs and burn in sunlight.
Magic classes.
Writing anything with even the remotest of semblance, to the characters and stories that these fanfics are based on.
Bisexual, Vampire Teen Wizards are why a Harry Potter role playing game will most likely never see print.

An overpriced, collectible miniatures game concept produced by Wizkids Games. Examples: Hero Clix and Horror Clix.

Characterized by:
The use of piss poor injection molded plastic figures the same quality one finds in supermarket vending machines.

Convoluted rules that require weekly revisions and erratas.

Sets consisting of 3-5 interesting characters, the three lame headliners for each series and a Hefty cinch-sack full of filler no one could possibly want.

Play mats that may, or may not, have silver dollar Mickey Mouse pancake prices printed on the back.

Idiotic, attention grasping sales gimmicks, like having customers wait in line just for the opportunity -to win a raffle -to buy a product at a convention. FUN!
(That's right, you get the fun of waiting in line for the chance to win the chance to buy a product later at the con! AND the fun of waiting for your number to be drawn! FUN!)

Famous for producing no less then 40 Spiderman versions. One of which, may actually be playable. Took at least four versions before the "Super Senses" ability was even used.

Producing limited edition "prizes" the majority of which, are virtually unusable.

Milking idiotic, money-to-burn neckbeards for money most folks drop on samll automobiles.

Community consists mostly of snarky, virginal jerks who spend the day kissing Wizkids' collective ass for ripping them off and wallowing in fact that they will never touch a vagina. (see also: HCRealms)
The latest pile of overpriced, plastic clix crap is the Scarab from the video game series Halo. At $250, you can buy Halo 3 limited edition with the giant helmet thing. Except this is just a big plastic toy. That doesn't do anything. Except remind of you where that 250 dollars went...
