Diablo 3, hospital, stalkers (!), and the novelty of the PS move ^^

Havent blogged in ages, and suddenly got the urge!
So, Ive been away from LBP for a while, thanks mostly to Diablo 3 which I was looking forward to for what seemed like forever. It didnt quite deliver :/ Its not bad, but definitely over-hyped, tons of things wrong/missing and in a matter of weeks got pretty boring. I got all classes to level cap and finished inferno (hardest difficulty) with most of them. Atm I am done with it, will let Blizzard go do some patching before I check back in with it at a later date...
Another reason I was away was a car crash which resulted in my first stay in a hospital >_< Thankfully nothing that wont heal in time. Lets just say even tho they did a good job, I didnt really like being a pin cushion for a few days and wont be too upset if I never have to go to one again o.O
Stalkers! They're not fun! A short time before my break away from LBP I unhearted someone who was a little intense when it came to anyone who said something negative about his levels (which I never did, thankfully!). I dont have that many people hearted and something I would regularly do when logging in would be look at the recent activity to see what people were playing, only to have it typically clogged up with this persons "messages" to other players. So I didnt want to see that in my time line, unhearted him thinking that would be a simple fix and oh my did he notice and not like that ^_^! I tried to explain it wasnt to offend him (truly didnt even think he would notice!) and gl and bb ^^/ Later, in an odd discovery, I found this person had since been stalking me (and still does!! ..... months later...!!). I often dont leave a review straight away, my kb is usually tucked away and sometimes I go back at a later time/day to give a review if I felt the level was worthwhile only to notice in the activity of the level that this certain person had played it just after me. I logged onto lbp.me and saw that this wasnt a coincidence, this person regularly went into a level shortly after I played it (and no he isnt on my friends list and he unhearted me after I unhearted him - I play some random things, from newest levels to lucky dip etc - no chance at all it was an accident). Whats more annoying is that even after a 2+ month break from LBP, hes still actually doing it (*seriously?!*). I published my first level in months and he was the first to play it and left lets just say an unpleasant 1 line "review", its the first time I have ever used the delete function, actually deleted the level and republished because it looked so horrible (I didnt know the review would stay up there blanked. Ive seen deleted comments before, but apparently its the same way with reviews ><). It really is freaky :s
And lastly, I wanted to talk about the PS move. I was very late getting it, think I got it in March? I had a blast with it, much more than I thought I would (never hurts having low expectations! Figured it was gimmicky - thanks Wii - and it wouldnt add much to the game). Excited to build something based on the move, I came to LBPC to read up about various tips on using the move related functions where I was surprised at how much of a faded novelty many felt it was by that time. Admittedly, the #1 reason I got it myself (and most agree) was the editor functions it came with. But it seems not many found it fun or worthwhile much beyond that. However (!), I always have and always will create for my pleasure (a philosophy often thrown around on the forums, but not listened to by many tbh). Its a little disheartening that it sits with zero plays, but I guess I knew that co-op + move + unknown = low (or currently "no" lol) plays.
If you managed to read this far (did you? did you just skim? yeah you skimmed ;p oh internet!), and have the time, please check out my showcase for my move co-op level - here
Take care ^^/
