No new poll today 'cus I've spent the better part of 8 hours working on two stinkin' (malware invested) computers and I got nothing. Nothing poll worthy anyway. That and I'm bummed 'cus I missed Lebowskifest.
Last week I asked about the milsim aspect of scenario/big game play reiterating my take--not a big fan--not sure it's a good for paintball generally (although it's good right now for the industry's bottom line, maybe.) Anyway, not a high interest poll (which isn't a big surprise) and more interestingly I am in a very tiny minority on this one. (Of course that's because I'm always so far ahead of the curve.) 90%+ see the milsim stuff as basically harmless fantasy and just barely worth a mouse click vote. 3% see it as bad for paintball and 3% find it disrespectful and trivializing or just kinda creepy. 40% don't think the milsim stuff is a problem but also aren't interested in getting down with the milsim either. (And I'm only guessing but I'm pretty sure approximately 18% don't know what trivialize means.)
Okay, so it wasn't a rock'em sock'em poll and it didn't start an internet war with the Airsoft cadres. (I hate reading death threats in crayon anyway.) It was a good excuse to take another shot at the milsim mentality and really that's all I was looking for.
