This has been in the works for a few days now, and finally it has arrived. Welcome to a new series where yours truly rants about random things that really just grinds his gears.

Now, this series will go beyond just a one liner deal, it will be a semi serious, semi joking rant about something in the community that really just irks me. Of course, it will always start out the way you would expect it too. Today, I have one minor rant, then one longer one. Get ready for “What Really Grinds My Gears”.

SpinnerYou know what really grinds my gears? That the spinner got barely any use outside of it’s founding dungeon in Twilight Princess. Really? It was one of the best new items added to a Zelda game in recent memory. A TRAGEDY I SAY!

You know what also really grinds my gears?

Zelda Informer

It’s ZeldaInformer people, not ZELDA INFORMER. Or as the infamous The Goron Moron, also know as The Rito Goron, put it – Zelda Inferior. We will accept ZeldaInformer or Zelda Inferior only, Zelda Informer is just a waste of my brain cells reading incoherent words and trying to make sense of them.

So, who is guilty of the “Zelda Informer” crime? It’s time to make a list, because I know everyone likes to read lists:

Exploding Deku Nut – Associates list.
Twilight Realm – Affiliate List
World Zelda Music Radio – Affiliate List
Zelda Dungeon – Affiliate List
North Castle – Affiliate List
Rauru’s Return – Affiliate List

For shame. Of our “partner sites”, only Zelda Universe and HTLOZ II got our name right. Really, is this what the world comes too? Outside of the common misuse of ZeldaInformer on various forums of which there is a mountain high pile of evidence, it gets even worse! YES FOLKS, MY RAGE IS ABOUT TO TAKE OVER THE INTERNETS.

Of course, that is just the tip of the iceberg. Our own staff, Matt Dustman, recently committed this unforgiveable crime in a news post, which I promptly corrected just before it was approved for release. Even one of the members we respect the most, LOZ Historian, misused our name on several occasion on the Zelda Universe Forums.

So, I am calling for the Inquisition. We must purge the internets. This really grinds my gears folks, and I can’t allow it to continue! Nate’s full of DISSASTISFACTION. Over and out.
