Me? Rude?

As Tina has commented previously, being a female orc can be very empowering … it’s fun being the tough chick.
What’s a little weirder though, is how it’s affecting my behavior outside of WoW … and I’m specifically thinking about the forums. In the past, I have been a bit of a lurker on the forums … I read the funny posts when I need a good chuckle, I marvel at the stupidity of some people, and fume privately about people who call other people stupid or noobs, or tell them to learn to play.
In the past few days, my female orc seems to have been taking over for me on the forums. I told one poster to ‘learn to auctioneer’. I told some poor soul asking where to farm for materials that could earn him gold to go somewhere I’m not. My golly. Normally these are things I would say to myself or to hubbie across the room, not actually type and submit on the forums. I blame the orc in me. My blood elves will have to teach her some manners.

    I do think I’m much nicer on my BE, mainly because I don’t get chewed out for (politely) declining to help someone run an instance. My theory is that the prettier you are, the less you’re asked to do. 🙂 I also think I’ve gotten ruder with each successive character, since the longer I play the less I’m willing to suffer fools. I helped everybody when I first started playing a little over a year ago, and now if somebody’s farming “my territory,” it’s war. Is it the character, or just the nature of the game?
