I Remember – #761

I remember a particularly lonely period in my life when I was playing World of Warcraft quite a bit.  I typed ‘Hi’ in to the Guild chat window.  It was during the Classic phase of the games (so, this would put it around 2006), and my character was wandering around the Burning Steppes.  I decided that the first person to respond to me would receive all of my in-game gold, and I hoped also might become my friend. Whoever it was who responded, I dutifully mailed the gold to them, and – nothing.  They said ‘thank you’, but that was as far as it went.  Very soon afterwards I deleted my characters and account (for the first, but not the last, time).
