Taken away your tech rights,
Please let me offer that I liked it a lot better when Nx was fucked off instead of back here being a bitch and making points or whatever nastiness he was doing by pushing the voting system and creating half the problem Trent found. Bravo, Nx. Nice "HCM." Way to promote order.
Personally, I liked it a lot better when bitter grudge-holders didn't derail every single conversation they took part in. But what do I know? I'm not exactly one of the popular Jocks.
Personally, I liked it a lot better when bitter grudge-holders didn't use the website's abuse filter to take sides in personal quarrels.
The amount of self-righteousness here is stifling. Let's not pretend this was a "personal quarrel." Or that I have a "bitter grudge" with Ace. Ace was quite clearly being an asshole, even Trent spoke up about it.
If it was a community issue rather than a personal quarrel, it should have been brought up at Chicken Coop/ATiM for community input. If it wasn't, it shouldn't have been fixed with abuse filter changes.
There is a fair amount of greyish area between a community issue and a personal quarrel, but I'm content to let this tempest in a teapot die quickly.
Virtually everything that happens around here can be traced to a grudge - even when the actions are quite legitimate.
I don't know if that's unique to RW, or just the results of the "internet" mentality.
