    I comment whenever I like a article on a blog or if I have something to add to the discussion.
    It’s a result of the passion displayed in the post I looked at.
    And after this article You Might Be A Gamer If
    Thoughts From The Gameroom. I was excited enough to drop a thought :
    -) I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s okay.
    Is it only me or does it seem like a few of these comments look like they are coming from brain dead folks?

    😛 And, if you are writing at additional places, I’d like to keep up with
    you. Could you list the complete urls of all
    your shared pages like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?

      Those “brain dead folks” are gamers and probably have more brainpower than you can possibly understand.

      I don’t do the social network thing so cannot share such profiles with you and the general public.

      Thanks for stopping by, Josh.
