I remember the original intro spiel for WH40K
, which had the whole "to e a man in such times..." "Forget the promise of technology..." "the laughter of thirsting gods.." and ended with the line "But rh universe is a big place and whatever happens you will not be missed."
Now in current versions they seem to cut it down a bit, and generally leave out the "you will not be missed" line.
I know there was a kerfuffle over GW
using that you will not be missed line in re to people who did not utterly throw themselves behind their "wokehammer" announcement which shows they have not forgotten it.
So i was trying to guess why that line got deleted from the original intro text. (I wonder who wrote is all those aeons ago...)
Honestly, all i came up with was the theory that someone somewhere decided that line about 'you will not be missed' might possibly make someone somewhere possibly maybe consider suicide, or could just maybe push someone already suicidal over the edge.
yeah, i know, that is fething stupid, but i can see a lot of people thinking that way. So they 'asked' the line be removed, then started pushing it, maybe some suit in the legal department said they might possibly get in some legal issue over it, etc. (I swear the difference between daemons and lawyers is daemons kill you, lawyers make you wish you were dead.)
So does anyone have any thoughts on why the 'you will not be missed" line which really set the dark tone for 40k
was dropped from the intro spiel? It's a small thing but i've noticed it, and the only reasons i can think of for it are annoyingly stupid.
