    don't get me wrong, the things you've seen me say recently are more directed toward a minority than the majority (which i actually said in my original post that sparked the fire)

    but i made the mistake of generalizing, when the actions of a few select individuals is what fueled my fire (mainly mili, who i've always had beef with)

    i actually do like this site for the most part, it's just the mob mentality that i see sometimes that makes my stomach turn, and i think anyone who's being honest with themselves can see some validity to the phrase "hypocrite planet", although again, it's a minority that's earned that tag............that's not to say it happens all the time, and obviously not everybody deserves to be lumped in that category, but that "minority" just happens to be in the forefront a lot

    P.S. - i'm not trying to kiss ass, just being real, i'm sure some will be further offended by this post, but i'm sure there are atleast a few of you that see where i'm coming from

    --------------------------------------------

    oh yeah, i've been on BN for a long time, not as long as some of the real "old-timers".........i would check here from time to time, and decided to come over here and start pissing people off in the last few months (sarcasm font)

    Sure I see some validity in a phrase like "Hypocrite Planet" and nothing in your post to be offended by...

    However, when you are getting in major blowups so frequently, you also must take a look at yourself.

    This perceived hierarchy around here is bogus IMO...I don't consider my opinion any better than anyone else's. However, I do expect the wild, out-of-leftfield opinions to be supported with facts. Its all in presentation. Respect gets respect...jabs get jabs.

    As much as you see a "mob mentality," I see a group of guys who love this site and all it represents. When new posters come on board, they are welcomed, but they must also hold their weight if they decide to jump into a conversation. As explained above, facts help out. Too many people come in here with guns blazing because they are a "respected poster" on another site. That is great...but this place contains new people and that rapport is non-transferable.

    Too many soft feelings around here. It did not used to be that way. Like I've said before, this is an excellent site, but it isn't for everyone. If people do not like the posters or the way the site is run, there are numerous other options out there. Knowing that, I still don't comprehend why people who dislike this place still visit and post. I guess it is for the drama...

    Mistri that is not directed entirely at you, but as you said, I am being real.

    Mistri is here for the arcade... I'm still racking my brain to figure out how he got such a high score on "Flamingo Drive"

    lol, i'll never tell, but i'm getting seriously pissed that i can't get that pentathlon crown back, i haven't given up.......ironically, it's flamingo drive that effs me up everytime i get close, it's gotta be almost perfect.........i'd probably have a lot more trophies if i didn't waste all my damn time on the pentathlon

    try and rack your brain and figure out how i got that frogger score :wink2:

    -------------------------------------------------
    about the other comments, Grad - trust me i know where you're coming from.....about my "tirades" i think you're blowing them out of proportion and/or looking at them the wrong way, the first was a carry over from BN in which you really didn't get the full scope of the frustration i had built up, you only saw the end result............about the other two, i purposefully put myself in the line of fire to make a point, it's not like i'm acting like i'm a victim, and i don't ever remember whining..........anyway enough of that, been beat to death

    --------------------------------------------------

    about the rep, lol, i knew i'd hear about that.........my ego doesn't rest on my rep, and i have no desire to be at or near the top........but if it's green it might as well be on for those that don't know me, and if it's red, again, for those that don't know me, there's no reason for people to think i'm "ScUM" just because i ruffled a few feathers

    Fair enough. Opinions will always vary I guess. I'll agree to disagree and move on as well.

    However, I would like to point out that many things are handled better in PMs. Calling out large groups or the entire site never leads to anything worthwhile for any of us.

    Yes I realize the irony of those last two sentences, but I think it was something many of us needed to see and remember.

    although we will probably never see exactly eye to eye, atleast we are able to better understand each other a bit................NOW, i will under no circumstance participate in a group hug, forget about it :shake:

    I don't recall us having any real "beef". We did disagree on Gamble where in the draft Gamble would go, and I did pay off our bet (although you said it was $250 when it was $200). Other than that, I never had a real problem with you...other than with you being a moron. :biggrin:

    Mistri's a fag for not joining our group hugs...

    On a lighter note you can thank V-G for bringing many of us to this site, including myself... I posted some of my crappy early wallpapers over there a while back... and eventually after checking his site for a while I tried clicking on his links and got here and have been drooling ever since...

    i wouldn't say it was "real beef"...........because i'm just one of the masses of people that have expressed their disgust at the way you treat other people and/or your arrogance.......it's not like i went on a crusade against you or anything...........and it's nothing that either of us have lost any sleep over, just me expressing my opinion on your behavior a few times, and you taking some jabs, and going back and forth a bit.........nothing that would stand out in the grand scheme of things, just another day at the office for you

    as to me being a moron, i'm feeling very sentimental right now because the feelings toward each other are mutual

    P.S. - you still owe me $50 :cool:

    well, that depends on your definition of drama, but you of all people should know that it's just not any fun being the nice guy who always goes along with the crowd :biggrin:
