I did not mean you. I'm talking about Spencer and Mcornetto. Everyone else is being cool. Reviews vs personal attacks are not the same thing.

Saying a script is anti gay is personal against the writer because the characters as admitted by most readers are gay which means they cannot then be in fact anti gay unless you mean the writer. Which is me.

I reserve the right to delete off topic posts. A post about me or a post about the subject of gay is not on topic. The Rainbow Express short is on topic, not just a simple blah mention.

I don't think you understand how the moderator/sub admin stuff works. You see when Don would go away for a week, he would leave the board and make me sub admin so I could help out. He must have thought I did a good job because I've been sub admin for a very long time.

Any negative things that have happened under my watchful eye have never been my fault because I'm a stickler for the rules and follow them to a perfect compromise. Some people will like it and others won't but it is not my problem to babysit either.

Furthermore I am also a writer and I do not want my threads to be thrown into disorder because a few people have a grudge against someone DON chose as a helper much like every other mod.

If it makes me a bad guy to be both a writer and a moderator, then darn it I'm screwed but as someone once told me... I got nothing but maybe someday, someone will tell me something that is useful and it would fit in there but probably not.

It was utterly not my intention to offend you in any way.  It always disturbs me to read things that depict oppressed minority groups in a derogatory fashion. My response was in no way meant as a personal attack and I apologise if it was perceived as such.

People can work themselves into such a froth over the written word.  It really is power, isnít it?

The way I see it, poor old Wesley is just trying to keep his thread from descending into chaos.

In this corner, people are taking offense at censorship.  In the other corner, Wesley just wants posts about his story, without all the additional crapola.  Is that asking so much?
  
So, two sides to every story.  Both sides need to take a deep breath and let it go.

There truly is far, far worse to be found on these boards.

Iíll give you a funny quote.  I hope you havenít heard it before.

Fighting on the internet is like the Special Olympics.  Even if you win, you are still retarded.

As for the rest of you on this thread, you can delete your own posts, too, you know, if you have written something you now regret.

Just tossing that out there for your consideration.

Wesley has said he will delete posts that are not related to his story.  If your post is not related to his story, quit yer' bitchin'.


Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

Wesley -- I totally agree that all unrelavent posts should be deleted... including yours. Now, before you hit the delete button again and censor me one more time, I think you should really leave this post and let Don decide. That was a great recommendation and you should be commended for suggesting it.

I want you to know I was willing to let this go after our spat last night... Then you used my name only because you think you are better than I am. I have proof in an email and will use it if need be. I recommended back in a previous spat session with another moderator that we should have the equivalent of a Zoolander write off. Let's do it... me versus the mods. And we wont be able to respond only those that did not write.

I think this is the internet equivalent of a good ole western duel.  I also think you should go by your avatar quote there and just let it go.  

Nice work, Steve.


Be excellent to each other

"I mean Helio's weirdest scripts make way more sense than that."

Dear Jordan, now is time Helio stays dead, dude!
