Nine years of using Muro as my nickname.
Nine years of people not having a clue of what "Muro"
means. Naturally, there were those few gamers who played "Oni"
by Bungie and for them Muro was the antagonist from it. And it was bearable, after all, that's where I got my nick in the first place so who was I to blame. Yet Oni isn't an extremely popular game, which I considered a good thing in a way, seeing how it only added to the obscurity of my nick and all. There were of course the Spanish folk for which it simply meant "Wall"
. Quite annoying, I'll admit, but hey.
All of this meant that I was "Muro"
for most and "Muro, like the evil dude from Oni"
for a few, with the occasional "Haha, wall"
Spaniard wiseass every now and then. And that was about it. All in all a good situation it was, yes.
But now, for fourteen and a half million people thorough the world, I am "Hurr durr, Muro? Like that cheap imitation of MS Paint?"
And the number rises with each day.
Oh, the shame.
Fuck you, deviantART, fuck you.
