It may be obvious to many that I am on Sombre's side. But here's why:

http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showt...ell#post739462

A moderator on this forum threatened to make Sombre's life a living hell.

This is so out of line that I cannot even begin to express my disgust. When I read this I was furious and intent on contacting the admins about this. However, I waited 'till I had a chance to get Sombre's take on it... he wasn't happy, but he was nowhere near as incensed as I. So, I didn't pursue it any further... but if your curious where Sombre's "lack of respect for the mods" originated, I suspect you need look no further than the above referenced post.
Dude, when people follow your link, they are going to see the comment in the original context it was presented in, which will actually make Sombre look bad. You would have been better served to not post a link to the thread and just say something random like "A mod threatened Sombre".

FFS Sombre needs new lackies, you guys are terrible at spin.

Of course, Dom Nerds are not great at spin.

Annette,

There was a question as to what happened in the thread. The thread is now restored and thus I have endeavored to answer the questions with citations.
Squirrelloid:

Why do you think the members of this forum need your play by play? You weren't in on the discussion that brought about me reinstating the thread, and just pop in to make sure you could point fingers at who you thought was responsible? I think the forum members are quite able to draw their own conclusions. So in my book your post was not only unnecessary but was an attempt to create discord. We have had enough discord around here, so please cool it.

Regards,

I wasn't trying to spin. Sombre was out of line... barely.

PLEASE tell me in what circumstances you would find it acceptable to be told by ANYONE that they were going to make your life a living hell.

Spin that.

Edit: I should have typed "ANYONE in a position of authority" just in case you were prepared to reply that your friends say it all the time.

That is spin. But it's salvagable... Having deleted Squirrelloid's post of what actually occured in the thread, I respectfully request that you delete the other posts in this thread that recount imaginary events in the thread.

Or maybe you deleted his post because it recounted exactly what happened and that didn't reflect well on Shrapnel or the people aligned with Shrapnel in this dialouge.

I can respect that it may have caused discord. However, since the other discussion of the same thread also can't help but do the same thing, shouldn't those posts also be deleted? Or, following your reasoning, should VFB have been allowed to post what I did verbatim simply because he was indicted in the earlier discussion?

As to why I felt my post was useful, previous discussion in this thread involved a lot of scapegoating that was contrary to the facts. All I did was highlight the relevant facts. I certainly hope its not acceptable to make posts scapegoating people who are no longer even on these boards to defend themselves, especially since the reason the thread was re-instated was that so evidence could be accessed to ascertain the truth.

For the promotion of harmony, this will be my last post on the subject (and in this thread). But I certainly hope you follow through on the logic of your reasoning and remove all the posts which attempt to assign blame for the events of that thread.

Sincerely,
Squirrelloid

That is why I reinstated the thread. So that people could draw there own conclusions from the facts.

Uh, wouldn't the actual thread do that - recount exactly what happened?

So, others can talk about "what happened" earlier in the thread, but Squirrelloid can't talk about "what happened"?

Did I drink a liter of scotch without realizing it? Because I'm confused.

Oh. Wait... I get it. After the thread is opened, there's no longer any need to discuss "what happened"? Because it's all there in the original thread. And Squirrelloid's post was deleted because it had inappropriate content or violated the ToS somehow?

I got it.

Nope... sorry, Lou. I lost it.
