There is this misconception that I was terribly upset about this, whinequit and all. No, I am just busy. Even if I listen to, what, my prof's youtube lecture in the other window, I can't possibly spend 16 hours in a row arguing about random ****, or spend weeks obsessing. So, I quit, and have to accept that some nasty things are said that I won't be able to answer.
That said, of course, some of stuff I wrote here over the years was embellished, or quite simply not true. Now, how did this come?
Because, guess what, in 2007, when I registered, I had a different relationship with the community than I have now. Not that I intentionally trolled people, but you where the lot with the ear grind, and the parking lot fight. Difficult to take such a crowd fully seriously, at least in the beginning.
I refer you to Sambosteve's avatar.
No excuses for that, but it's not like I had tried to intentionally delude people outside of a few very particular trolleries.
And frankly, as pitiful as it is, I am not much of a good liar, because I forget about the stuff I say. Like, at the EuroMega '11. Did I write that I was an ammy fighter?! No idea. But if I had been aware then, I would have cleared it up immediately. Can I take the old stuff back? No. But would I do it again? Unlikely. Anyway, I hope my positive contributions outweigh the negative ones in the end.
This much is clear.
As to the TD, TS, and I can't be the one to break that to you, the thing that had me reconsider my personal involvement at the TD long BEFORE this, uuhm, extravaganza, was that you behaved like a moron the whole fucking weekend. On the mat, like somebody who didn't know gym etiquette. Outside of the mat, like a disturbed person.
- Now, before you go all butthurt about this, let the criticism sink in. What Lebell gratiously refers to as "politics" is that I have been telling people not to mind, because I didn't want to single you out over bullshit like that. Even when that maybe would have gotten me, what, some e-cred back. So, take this criticism from your peer; and let's talk about this in a different environment at some point.
That said, what's about this "keep up or shut up"-bullshit?
As I see it, we are pack, not some sanctimonious warrior cabal. As in, we hold together, and try to improve. But for that, and there it gets difficult, we need to end the infighting that has been the community's trademark ever since Cy-Gate.
Maybe some of you think we already are a hopeless case. I don't. That's why I am enduring all this ****, and taking the time. So, guys, why don't we try to "be good"?
Now go ragequit some more while you keep reading the thread as you did all along.
edit: Could IIF or someone else cull posts into a different thread considering the euro clusterfuck?
