Look who's talking.


Oh? I've repeatedly insulted dark in nonconstructive ways? Link pls.


No, but you are being rude and inconsiderate to us in your blind devotion to dark. Such obsession there.


If I were blindly devoted to dark, then why have I posted on occasion things that he's done that I disagree with?
Obsession? Naw, that'd be like letting the most minor stuff that happened two years ago define my very existence...

Where did I use force to get someone off the forums?

I mean, logic and common sense, sure... but force? Did I break into your house why you were sleeping and pistol whip you until you promised never to come back? Because, if I did, I sincerely apologize for doing that. I won't ever do it again, I swear.



Again, You're exaggerating it.

Wait, I didn't call him lazy and sickening. He's acting that way. Please find the post where I said that. Another thing is, he is acting lazy by not replying too posts, and fixing the site.

Definitely obsessed enough to bring someone else's mother into the conversation just to try and prove a point.

And to repeat: My issue isn't with folks who have valid criticisms (or, for the most part, invalid criticisms) against dark. It's the entitled attitude that dark *owes* it to a small group of users to do exactly whatever they want and that his failing to do so is some kind horrible flaw in his personality. "I have a complaint and dark must reply or he's lazy."

If I were dark, I'd ignore any complaints that came worded like that too. Hell, on many, many forums, you'd probably see moderation/bans handed out. Seriously, go to NeoGAF and start a few threads calling the mods/admins there lazy. You'll be removed from the forums before you can start your second thread.

You said "we weren't insulting dark". Did you mean to say that you are not insulting dark?
Also, you just called him lazy. Not responding to posts doesn't make one lazy. Are you lazy because you don't respond to every single post on this forum?

Obsessed enough to harp over one throw-away comment. That could have read "If that's how you show respect, I'd hate to see how you treat your dad." or your friends... grandparents, spouse, kids, pets, postal worker, whatever.

Look, I'm sorry that you took it so personally that I made a generic statement about your mother (not even "about" your mother, but about the way you treat people.)... You're absolutely right, it had nothing to do with the topic at hand. Moving past that, do you think it's respectful to call dark names, call him lazy, and call him sickening?

The fact that he had allowed rule-breaking users to get away with trolling others for over five months on the forums, even though he was aware of their actions while he had the time to update the news and look for new info can be considered lazy. In the past, he basically allowed the trolling to escalate out of control until he decided to get off his high horse months later and actually do something about it when it should've been handled the moment it started. The fact that he didn't do anything, nothing, no response to the trolling nor give any suspensions/bans while those users were being tormented until later on in the year, is indeed sickening.

I'm referring to the users who purposely troll and berate others for amusement. One worst scenario is a troll rallying and turning other users against someone by telling them false claims and lies. One such scenario took place for months until dark finally banned the one responsible.

So, when should dark draw the line on banning rule breakers? Insulting dark and calling him names is okay. Harassing you and your forum friends is ban-worthy. Curious where the line between those two is.

There's a difference between dark's negligence in handling user concerns regarding trolls and harassment and users expressing their opinions on his lack of immediate moderation on the issue.

Yup. And there's a difference between expressing one's opinion on something and attacking/insulting someone because his/her opinion is different from your opinion.

Look at my "Age Verification" thread. I don't berate dark, call him names, insult him or his choices on the forum. I merely *ask* that he consider implementing something that I think would be best on the forum. It's come up before and it's been shot down before - but simply because he doesn't do it, it doesn't give me the right to attack him personally.

It's Dark's job since he owns the website, and since he is advertising with activision's permission (along with other ads) We can basically say from the advertisments. Before skylanders it was his 'job' as admin to take care of the site and still is. There was no paycheck involved with taking care of a website.

It's like owning a dog Bob, it's your responsibility/job to take good care of it. If you can't do that, then you shouldn't have a dog because you are irresponsible/lazy.

Nope. Near the bottom of every page.... "Activision Blizzard has no association with and takes no responsibility for the community fan sites to which this site is linked or the content thereon."

Activision has no affiliation with this site - to say dark runs it with their permission would be incorrect. It's a fan site. It's a labor of love.

Generic He. It's because you can't tell by your forum name/icon what your gender is - it's acceptable to use "he" in a generic, genderless manner when the gender of the individual is unknown.

No I was just comparing the site responsibility to that of a pet's. But if you choose to think that and only that, then everyone here is a majestic puppy and there is nothing wrong with me trying to compliment them with the term "majestic puppy" right?
