No you're probably right Garion...some of the people who are interested enough take their time to look at this forum 18 odd months before the game comes out probably do know what that reference was about...the problem is that we're not really a representative audience for the vast majority that Stardock will be marketing to. [...]
Then you obviously don't know Stardock. The people on the forums here are more likely than not the exact people they'll market to.
Quoted for truth...its normally used when people are hearing something that they don't like
Wrong. It's the direct opposite. When you QFT something, you're quoting it because it deserves to be said again. You're quoting it because you agree; because it's truth.
This is, of course, outside of the "Quit Fucking Talking" sense, which I've never heard, myself.
I think it's got more to do with social spheres than anything. I've -never- heard "Quit Fucking Talking" amongst gamers, but that's of course not to say that it's extremely common in another sphere, or another actual physical place or 'culture'.
Edit: Dammit, why can't I say anything without it sounding like an insult or passive-aggressive mumbo-jumbo? What I mean to say is that Spartan is possibly right(!).
ok, bare with me here. call me a forum newbie or something if you want, but I have never seen nor heard of an acronym that includes a Q... I can think of a few for FT *hammer* but those are really mean. What is QFT?
There's always "QQ", which isn't really an acronym, and something Torynn should do a whole lot less.
