You're missing the point - read the thread title again. They're paying almost $40 for an emoticon. Let that sink in.

We're not arguing about what's cool and what's not. I could care less about people's smoking habits. What is interesting, though, is that people are prepared to go to great lengths just to slap a .JPEG on their screens. It's a little worrying.

But hey, who am I to micromanage their finances?
This thread really is a demonstration of how, when somebody is desperately committed to concealing their insecurities, they'll overlook blatantly critical information in an attempt to portray themselves in the best possible light and make their own reflections easier to confront.

The people defending this bullsh*t are conveniently ignoring the fact that - as you said - these attention wh0ores are paying an absurdly disproportionate amount of money for what is nothing but a minuscule emoticon; which suggests to me that some of the posters in this thread are active participants in this juvenile, vain nonsense.

If it was just a bunch of 15 year olds, then it'd be easier to digest; but there is little justification for any adult who is prepared to shamelessly invest even a cent into something so superficially trivial - and that's not because maturity means shedding oneself of any semblance of childhood, but because an emoticon is the embodiment of vanity. Investing any money at all into your online persona exposes hollowness of character - the more you spend, the shallower you are - and no amount of pothead emoticons can fill that void.

Im just defending the fact that its silly to even think about, no matter what side youre on. Its not sad that someone spent 40$ on a pot leaf icon. Since people are spending 40$ on pot leaves, how much are they spending on other icons

Although i hate the logic if it doesnt concern you then why are you worried about it. I feel like that really does apply in this case. Just because you see a pot leaf, and that person may have spent more $$$ on it then you deem fit, doesnt mean theyve lost their mind. It just means you are looking too far into it. That person could of made that their icon for thousands of random reasons and whatever they spent might just be a drop in the bucket

They spend the money/trade because they want to and are given the option to. Everything is relative and your personal standards should not involved in this equation.

Why would any adult waste time catching feelings about a pot sign that someone may have spent more than what you deem as "right"? Someone with that brain of a 15 yr old.

Not mad in the slightest, just bringing my logic into the equation

Not catching feelings - I just felt like illustrating the senseless vanity at play in this situation with as much impact as possible. They can spend their money however they like, and the sane amongst us can sh*t on them for being so wastefully shallow as well. Meanwhile, Valve is laughing all the way to the bank.

Ultimately, this isn't about money or emoticons - this is all about standards.

Yeah but i mean why is it all about standards? Whos standards? Yours?

This is really nothing more than people spending money on something they want. Same reason you may cop adidas instead of the cheapest shoe at walmart. Or the same reason one may go to famous footwear and get a 60$ pair of shoes instead of a 20$ pair somewhere else. Or you may want a nice polo that is absurdly overpriced. Like, why not buy an 8 pack of hanes plain tees and rock them until the arm pits are so discolored that they are just too raunchy to wear. Yeah, you can argue standards, but thats not gonna work for me.

Wastefully shallow can be applied in so many circumstances its not even funny man. If we could all live more like turtleman in the backwoods of kentucky with no running water the world would be a better place.

And trust me i hate the idea of money, credit, there being no cap on private student loan interest rates. Money is just a piece of paper with a number on it. A 20$ bill and a 50$ bill are printed on the same damn type of paper yet youre telling me that one is worth more than the other? All because some workers lined up the 50$ stencil instead of the 20$ stencil...

When comparing products that are for sale and cost a fraction of what they are sold for, were all getting are buttholes blown out...thats reality.
