But you dropped in just to drop stink bombs, blah.
Hardly. I dropped in because someone was attacking a friend of mine, and I don't look kindly on that.
Outside of Slaak, show me who I attacked. And even Slaak wasn't an attack, but a restatement of some well-known facts from elsewhere.
But you guys taking swings at Jarhead based on the word of Slaak & Wodin (both banned in multiple online venues for their misbehaviors) and, no, I'm not going to sit idly by anymore.
And if you're going tell me you wouldn't do the same, then tell me Parusski, Rogo, Nate, et al - who said "boo" to you? Or did you jump in because you thought someone was taking a shot at your online pals?
Online misbahaviours, you make it sound like I was trolling or attacking or upsetting others!!! When all i did was post under different avatars due to being harrassed. Sigma gave me the go ahead! Thats whats laughable. Jarhead wanted to make an issue out of it to assert his authority. I posted as Ulrich in grogheads because after mentioning Jarhead here I knew the name Wodin would be mud by a certain few. Though I never posted anything under those names that I wouldn't have posted as Wodin. What people don't like is that it showed up their own petty issues with me. As they got on fine once I changed the name of my avatar. I posted exactly the same things as I'd post under Wodin and they had no issue at all. Funny that as if i'd posted the same things as Wodin no doubt I'd have had some snarky remarks. Finally when you get on the wrong side of some people in this community even if it when all said and done very petty reasons then your name is marked. Fact. Due to that fact you in some places have to leave a certain avatar name behind. As I proved. 6 months on Wargamer with no issues at all! Not one! Oh and what 8 years previous to being banned as Wodin no issues! Then I was banned as if I was dirt. Aswell as humiliated publically. After 8 years of contributing to the forum I was cast out for life!! When I considered people in this community as friends! No friend would do something like that.
Anyway if you want fair treatment and be considered a friend then come to the forum in my sig. I would never ban someone for life and humiliate them if they'd been an active member at my forum with no history of trolling or bullying. I'd do it all in private and get to the bottom of any problems. I'd treat someone with respect and with feelings.
The whole episode for me showed peoples true colours and who couldn't be viewed as a mate. Whats sad is all those who think they are friends of certain people actually aren't. One slight thing and you'll be cast aside. They couldn't care less about you. If I died suddenly tomorrow and it was announced here I'd turn in my grave if I started getting RIP messages on here from certain people. I can say that I'm more genuine even if using different avatars than a fair few in the community. If your a friend to me I am a friend to you and not a snake in the grass. Infact calling certain parts of this community a community is a sick joke to be honest. There is no camaraderie whatsoever. No loyalty. No forgiveness. No treating people like they have feelings, nothing. Maybe it's something todo with the actual hobby itself and the type of person it can attract or maybe it's just the net.
I know who I value, I certainly know who are sheep, and finally I know who I consider to be a mate.Bayonet you are as delusional as I was if you think you have mates over there. You could be dropped like a stone with out a second though. I too would at one time jumped in and stuck up for Jarhead and others, oh what a fool I'd have been, thinking I was considered a friend and if I had problems I'd be viewed as one.
Anyway due to my future involvement in the games industry I shall no longer read this thread nor participate. I've said my piece in as clear and non aggressive manner as I could. The only worry I have out of all this was how Jarhead got my IP? My IP has changed twice since I last used it at Wargamer.
