Do I? Do I really? Perhaps I could be offended because you're calling me a nickname that I don't like to be associated with and no one gets away with calling me when you do that. Maybe, maybe not. But hey, our turtle friend tried to call me out for saying that spamming the chat with unnecessary song lyrics was against the rules of the chat. Wouldn't want there to be a double standard here and the fit of rage to only be one sided.

Hey dont bring me into your crap show pal. I'm trying to stay neutral in this, and would appreciate you not pulling me into this by name.

Oh yes, because "I can't wait until the ban hammer is dropped on you" is totally staying neutral.

I meant in this posting, but since you brought it up, it would help the mchat problem by quite a margin, in my opinion. But saving that for another time, I was not involved in this before, and refuse to take sides.

You could never stay neutral to save your life. Even in relation to the chat 'issues' I'm sure you were one of the ones to complain to the mods. You're very much a part of this.

If you had a problem with me calling you that, I'm sure you would have made it known.

I don't think he ever said song lyrics was against the rules, nor is there anything in the rules saying such.

Curious then, how I've specifically seen "spamming the chat" and "song lyrics" in the same sentence mentioned by he-who-must-not-be-named then. Even if it's one or the other, we got that good ole' double standard going strong there since he'll only seemingly say that to me but not to you. Hmmmmm.

Or maybe you just don't care to listen.

I personally think the removal is a good thing; there was a lot of hate going on from what I saw, although I am not online all that often.

I say if the mods think they can come up with a solution; we give them that chance

Anyone who is upset about the closing of the chat is free to use one of the many free services out there to start their own chat, come up with their own rules, and figuring out the logistics of enforcing them.

My answer is that I have neither the time nor the energy nor the desire to be policing the chat because certain people here are incapable of behaving themselves and that if other people really want a place to chat, they are free to create their own space to do so.

You've also stated multiple times over the years, like many before you, that you would leave this site for good and hand over the reins to someone else and let them take charge. We all lie. So that's a bit of a cop-out.
