You See: [A Crowbar]

Allen Varney follows up his earlier NGE story for the Escapist with the coda of Jeff Freeman’s adventures in blogging, thus proving that it’s never wise to actually blog about what you’re doing at work, because enterprising writers will dredge it up years later to prove a point.

Dozens of bitter young males, unfamiliar with the collaborative design of MMOGs, heaped daily scorn upon this water-carrier, this flunky, as the unstoppable mastermind of the entire NGE.

Either Varney’s prose turns towards the purple, or Freeman insulted Varney’s kids at a Sunday outing or something. “Flunky?” “Water-carrier?”

Michael Zenke agrees.
