You DO realise that if you sacrifice them on your altars you get given 10g each don't you?

I agree they are getting quite annoying. One or two maybe but I hate having my mail thing up all the time if I dont feel like getting another flower. I'm not a qeynos warrior and rarely ever do I go near a mailbox. Please stop or make them available on the love merchants.

<p>It will never cease to amaze me that people can always find something to whinge about.</p><p>Don't like Valentines day? Don't participate. Don't want the roses? Delete 'em. SOE did not intend for them to arrive each time you log in, and I'm certain they know that it's doing that. Why all the posts whinging that something SOE created for us to enjoy for a brief period is just a little inconvenient for the bah-humbugs amongst you?</p>

You're kidding right? Ya freaking grinch, some of us don't get much mail and LIKE getting our roses, I got a ton sprinkled all over my house, before this ends I'm just gonna log in and out, over and over, to get more <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  SOE loves me ) LOL If you don't want a bunch of roses, just don't click on the letter with the rose when you check your mail.  If you leave the first one unopened, you won't get another.  So what, you have to live with a letter icon for a few days, and hear that "boop" once when you log in, are you that precious and sensitive that this is a big hassle? Silliness!

You guys are ridiculous.  Erollisi Day comes once a year, <u><i><b>ENJOY IT!</b></i></u>  If you don't like the flowers DELETE THEM!!!!!!!!!  Is that SO [Removed for Content] HARD?! It's completely ridiculous that people can find the most miniscule things to scrutinize.  <b>Most </b>people enjoy this stuff, otherwise they wouldn't put it in.

Those of you who think we're being ridiculous should consider that not everyone is regularly  by a mailbox. There I am, way out in EOF somewhere, and the mailbox icon pops up again.  Its not even once a day, its once per log in!! Is it another stupid rose (for the 8th time?) or is it one of my crafting customers requesting work?  I don't know till I go to a mailbox, somewhat of an inconvenience when you are out adventuring in the middle of the wilderness. Oh crap... another rose <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> I can't just ignore the mail icon, because then my tradeskill customers think I'm ignoring them, and I'm expecting several orders right now, since they have told me they are sending them.  So do I just quit adventuring for the week?  Wow that makes erollisi day fun for me!

I agree with pandemonium73. Your customers can wait for a little bit, especially if they're sending you stuff by mail (since it already takes awhile for things to be mailed).  If your customers were in such a hurry, like you make it seem, they would've met you in person and given you the stuff, not mail it. Even if your point is valid, think about how many people this situation applies to...

Assuming they do this for just one week anyone with all their slots filled is gonna have 42 stupid roses.  Sure you have to log on to each character for that to happen, but if you are a tradeskiller believe me, going toon to toon for a second happens everyday.   It was cute on day one, it was odd on day two, by day three I just started deleting them.

BTW, all you people annoyed at someone for being annoyed by spam are hypocrites.  If getting the same letter over and over again is too small a thing to be upset about, then this post is also too small a thing to get upset about.  Stop attacking him and go place your roses.

People disagree all the time on these boards.  Folks have every right to respond to any post that [I cannot control my vocabulary] well pleases them, tyvm. Secondly, most didn't respond in a mean way, many were just smart #$%. If you want to counter any of the points made with reasons why we are wrong, fine, that's what these boards are for and you did a good job of it in your other, much more reasonable, post.  If you want to tell specific people that they were out of line by being too mean, that is also your right, quote them and tell them where they are out of line. If you want to wage a campaign of disagreement against their ideas by PMing everyone you know and telling them to go back you up in the thread so your side WINS, have at it. But it is soo not your place to pass out blanket accusations telling everyone who disagrees with someone's position and explains why, that they are hypocrites.  </span>

I appreciate the thought behind the roses and the messages although agree that a variety of items would have been better. We don't complain about unwanted gifts in RL - do we? Don't we just accept it pleasantly even if we hate it realizing that the thought behind it is what counts? No? Oh well, just a thought!
