Sigh, not sure why you are acting like this.
I asked a question regarding GoG.
You replied to me with information about Steam.
Now, communication is a pretty complicated thing at the best of times, but one can usually pick-up what is the most relevant part of a post quite easily by the use of keywords. My use of the word 'GoG' is a good hint that a reply should include the word 'GoG'. However, you replied to me without any mention of GoG but instead used the keyword 'Steam'.
However, I'm aware you are talking to me and expecting me to reply, due to the fact that you quoted me.
Now, how do I reply?
"Thank-you for that information, however, it is useless to me"?
"Interesting information that, I'm sure it will be useful to someone!"?
Or do I predict that you might be offended at the slightest hint that what you are talking to me about is irrelevant? How do I communicate to you 'nicely' in a way that both suggests what you have said is completely irrelevant and that you shouldn't need to feel defensive about your unusual reply?
Well, I thought I did a pretty good job in that. If anything I thought the next logical reply, if you were actually trying to converse with me about the topic I raised, would be along the lines of "What option is it that GoG has that Steam doesn't, I don't understand".
However, your reply was that you thought I might be unaware of the sale.
This clearly implies you are still not aware that your reply was completely irrelevant to the conversation you were having. It seems my first reply didn't have the effect of letting you 'politely' understand that you are not contributing to the question with any relevancy.
So I did a funny.
Hope that helps.
