I mean, /I/ write long reviews with no images, but I haven't beaten a game in like two months *glances at Youkai Watch 3* so I've been fairly absent here lately :b

I don’t really care for random images or large images. An image should be just large enough to convey the desired impression. It should also be carefully selected to illustrate key points of the review or otherwise contribute meaningfully. Rando screencaps are a waste of my time and data. If a picture is worth a thousand words, they should be helpful and on-topic words, and not pointless ones.

I never talked to you, about you, or even responded to you, period. Leave me out of your assumptions and negative behavior.

I can't find anywhere that you asked him anything or that he said anything that could be misconstrued to be directed at you.

I can't see anything that he said; the Exhuminator part of that quote is blank...

Again; I never attempted to speak to you, about you, or respond to anything you said. You are confused. You are also attempting to stir up drama unnecessarily.

Ok folks, this whole thing is turning into a circular logic clusterfuck. Everybody chill, take a step back from their computers, go take a walk, and play a video game. Most importantly, relax and ease off the pedal, because this conversation is going nowhere fast.
