Remove unusual taunts.
Seriously. I'm okay with "taunt crates", but do we really need the trading part of TF2 to be more unstable than it already is?

Speaking of which, TF2outpost is a scary place. I mean, I like TF2 items as much as the next guy but those people over there....they scare me.

Not sure why it *really* matters. Virtual items are simply not real. Not real == not real. Perhaps your perception of things has been changed by these things without substance or effective value? #justsayin

Have you seen how bad the unusual taunts look? Let them have it, it's punishment enough that they bought it, they don't need anymore humiliation.

People seem to think having some keys in their backpack makes them the "king of outpost" and they highball every single item.

Most of my trades are done ingame/via simply adding someone yet I have a backpack worth much more than the majority of outpost users.

It doesn't really, I just think it's downright dumb.

Just a random observation, you currently have 1337 hours on tf2.

I couldn't figure out why you were using a middle schooler tactic of arguing, reduction, until I looked in your inventory and saw that you have one.

My condolences, I understand you're overly defensive now and mildly autistic because you made a rash decisions, but hey, maybe one day you'll be able to sell it and only lose a couple keys in profit.

Look, you might've tricked yourself into thinking you're a "purple confetti collector" or something silly like that, but the fact of the matter is - you simply couldn't afford an unusual taunt even if you wanted one - so of COURSE you'll call them bad.

I'm truly sorry that you're the kind of guy who can't forge a decent argument and resorts to disgusting insults such as calling people (and I quote) "autistic".

There's no need for it, and I think you'll find the only REASON I have one of those taunts is because I main Demoman (as you'd see if you had the patience to properly look in my backpack).

Please, give an example of one of these "rash decisions" to justify your injustifiable language ;).

P.S. I'll be making more than "a couple keys in profit", again, you'd know that if you had any knowledge of trading B).

I know, I literally took a screenshot last night.

Didn't know you were this butthurt to the point you have to resort to taking up some sort of high horse elitist position and using ad hominem in such a context to make me feel bad about my financial status in a video game like it is a caste system.

I don't think I'm a collector of any sort, I just like purple confetti, purple is my favorite color. Being expensive doesn't inherently make things good, and being unable to afford something doesn't inherently make a person hate it.

I've "forged' a decent argument enough to make you respond back in a passive agressive essay, and I'm not resorting to insulting you, it's just that insulting you is my right and I'll use it as I see fit.

I never implied I didn't know you had that taunt for Demoman because you mained it, which is clearly obvious, and I didn't imply there was a need for it.

Your rash decision of course is the fact you wasted a substantial amount of money to attain an item you can only enjoy if you stay stationary, taunt, and watch the 5 second sprite.

Also, the whole "I'll use an array of sarcastic emoticons to hide my anger" tactic isn't working at all.

You implied that I bought it at full price. Your argument no longer stands ;). All of my ingame items stem from an initial £20 investment - if I have the knowledge to trade, why not use it? I'm not sure if your idea of me 'buying' everything with money is a direct result of your actions, and if so, I feel very sorry for you indeed. Also, I've sold around £200 worth of TF2 items over PayPal and so in fact, I've made money from this game rather than spending it.

You complain about a "passive agressive essay" whilst as you type away lines and lines of nonsense (big words don't amount to a big argument in your case) I simply state the facts and you get angrier and angrier as this goes on.

So please, assume more about how I obtained my items, and how I'm using various psychological techniques to argue about in-game pixel effects. (That's right, there's no "sprite" involved - please read into subjects before you rant about them needlessly).

Yes, I'm sure you "love" the person completey arguing against what I have to say, of course not enforced by the fact I'm disagreeing with you.
