used the "your cheating" line on me. I said I told you and all my FB/FV buddies about GU, if you don't choose to use the site, that's alright w/ me, do as you please- but don't be upset w/ me, for using Gamers Unite ! Did I say the right thing to her ??

The walking vs car analogy is good. But I would say it's more like trying to do your taxes (US 1040 shortform) by hand vs using tax software.

Even the IRS uses tax software to check your figures. They don't have time to go thru 200+ million tax forms by hand. No one would EVER get a refund that way.

No u said the right thing, it seems everyone thinks that GU is just the snag bar, GU is a wealth of info that all those nose in the air people are missing out on. You know sometimes I think they just get pissed because they can't figure out how to get the damn snag bar to work or download. I love the snag bar and all the new options and I have many friends so if a few can't understand that GU is much more than the snagbar then Bye Bye and who cares, I got along without ya before I met ya and I can get along without ya now. That's how I roll hahaha - Jen

Hey.. I had a new FB friend post open to me that if I don't stop using the GU than she will delete me... bla bla bla.. I have enough real friends as FV Neighbors that I told her to read what the GU is and get informed.. And than I blocked her. If using GU is cheating what do you call the FV bonuse checker.. Oh.. its called Claim.. lol.. not Snag.

There is so much discussion about this and some really nasty posts. I just joined and reviewed everything before I downloaded the tool bar. What I found is wonderful. I don't always have time to search the wall and flip back and forth. I was having to choose whether to collect items I needed or fertilize my neighbors and gift. Now I have an option. I can fertilize all I want and scan when needed. The cheating line is just wrong. You can turn it off and on. Like the MOD said use it have fun but don't get greedy. It's a tool. What I also found is it will not give you items from friends that have timed out anyway. How is this cheating... it is just more efficient!!!! You don't get anything extra by using it .. it just saves time.

I've gotten this complaint by using game enhancers on console games. and I've always given the same response.

I don't consider it "cheating" if it doesn't hurt anyone, and especially if it doesn't damage anyone else game. The point of all games is to have fun, and if something can enhance that fun, that's a plus.

and as you stated, if they don't like it they can simply ignore it.

I tell my friends it is like using a car over walking. Could walk just as easy, but it is so much faster to drive. I don't see how it is cheating when you could get it done by hand.

I'm a little more harsh on my "friends" that pull that line on me but it's a good route :)
