Jokes aside, I think Imnop and Crazy just want to point out technical reasons why Blacks are superior for gaming, which seems reasonable and factual.
But if they understood the very simple thing that I said, then none of this ever would have been said. I mean, I was just simply saying that even though all of these technical facts are very true and quite well-known in the mechanical keyboarding community, it doesn't mean that they're absolutely out of the question and it doesn't mean that there aren't people who have tried all of the popular switches and strongly prefer the Cherry MX Blues for gaming. I mean, some people don't have a single problem with them, but that certainly doesn't mean that they're superior; it just makes them different.

In other words: Yes. I am absolutely 100% aware of all of these facts and technicalities. But in the end, it all comes down to the individual.

The thing about preference/opion is, there are those on this board who believe ****ty logitech/razer rubber domes are no different than mechanicals and some who believe they are superior. Don't feel like your message isn't going across, I'm sure they understand what you're saying.
I'm not sure because if they were, then they wouldn't have tried to teach me all of that technical stuff. I mean, I never once said something like, "No, the Cherry MX Blues are in fact excellent for gaming". But they sure acted like it. They acted like I needed to be educated even though I said absolutely nothing that would have called for it.

If I had the money (and the extra room), then I'd have the Tactile Touch NKRO, the Linear Force, the Topre Realforce, the IBM Model M, the Dell AT101W, etc., etc.

In other words, I'd have a couple dozen different mechanical keyboards. But not only do I lack the money for more keyboards (hardly enough to justify spending even $20 right now), but I lack the space. Literally.

What I don't understand is why we need to/should point that out. I think that's pretty much a given for anything.

What I did was kept my favorite keyboard at the moment, then would get a new one in addition, try it out, then sell it and try a different one. You loose a bit of money each time, but you don't have to spend thousands on keyboards to get a good feeling with a broad scope of different ones.

Not saying you should rush out and do it right now, just maybe something to try when you have some extra money you're willing to spend. Seeing how much you like your current keyboard, just imagine if there was one out there that you like just as much more.

Again: somebody on here - and I won't say who - looked like their message was basically this: Cherry MX Blues are absolutely no good for gaming and nobody uses them whatsoever (or, perhaps that everyone hates the Cherry MX Blues for gaming). So, I decided to say that this kind of a statement cannot be made since it will always come down to the individual.

There's nothing I dislike more than seeing a potential for somebody to read this for the first time not knowing any better and saying, "Oh, then I will never, ever consider the Cherry MX Blues for gaming, and I'll also tell others that this switch type absolutely sucks for gaming". There's no way I'm going to allow for that to possibly happen. The decision is up to the individual, not the technical facts.

Yes, the technical facts should be considered. But in the end, it can still only come down to the person making the decision.

Here's an extremely exaggerated example to make my point absolutely clear:

Fact: mustard is not a suitable condiment for a chocolate cup cake.

Truth: With over 6 billion people on this planet, there have to be people who love mustard with their chocolate cup cakes.

Both are true. But in the end, it doesn't matter what the facts are when the ultimate decision has to be made with your senses.

Now please don't judge my example and say "gross, there is not 1 single human being on this planet who likes mustard on chocolate cup cakes". Yes, I think that this is true too. But that's not the point behind that extremely exaggerated (and admittedly ridiculous) example.

Thanks.

If you really want some I'll mail you a pack, but that's it . I always get my cigarettes from there not just because of the price, but because they're a lot cleaner than the American ones (not like Cigarettes are clean to begin with, but at least these are better) - they've got MUCH less chemicals in them, and it really shows. Their feel and taste is a lot smoother, they take twice as long to burn, and they don't go out on their own if you don't smoke them fast enough.
