Just felt like moaning about my research!

Yes!! I could not think of a better place to do this. I’m so confused and distraught!!! I’ve come to the conclusion that people playing TSO (The Sims Online) are actually genuinely nice people!! I don’t get it! There are supposed to be griefers all around, but I haven’t found a single one. So, since I’ve based my thesis on governmental policies of behavior within TSO my advisor and I decided it might be wise to become a griefer myself, so that I could force MAXIS to deal with me or see what other forces the TSO community has designed to deal with ‘criminals’. But I can’t do it! To me it is just like screaming abusive comments in the middle of the town square. I’m not saying that I’m a completely gentle and always nice person, but I can’t bring myself to be rude to people. I tried insulting a few people for being Americans, but they just wouldn’t have it and ignored me, and I felt left out and a bit of a dweeb, actually. The people I’ve become friends with actually mean something to me as well.
But I still don’t like the game. I still think it’s very boring, but then again, this may just be because I’m a pathetic newbie still. I don’t know all the dance moves and I bought a fridge the other day and managed to place it with the doors facing against the wall so I can’t reach the food!
Another problem I’m finding is the time difference. In a life where I have to work, study and play, it is hard having to stay up all night playing and then off to work at 8 am! That sounds so pathetic!
I’m also having a bit of trouble with my European sense of humor! Either people aren’t getting it or they are offended by it or they just don’t like me. Yes, I’m a TSO outkast! Lovely!
Then there’s the whole “should have started this ages ago” scenario. Getting involved with MMORPGs takes an awful long time! You can’t just go in, play a few hours and then think you understand it.
So, in short, I’m a bit down and frustrated. Not exactly sure what I’m going to do next! But I need to find an angle soon, or I’ll never finish this thing!!!
