I'm all that and a whole lot more. This is one of those times that when someone starts talking like "violence is cool" I put my myself in the conversation whether they like it or not.
Thank you for the Clarity... Sean/Carnivore.

And of course the armour.

The original reason I like Mandos as a kid. Boba looks cool. Then Jango came and I was like, IT COMES IN BLUE TOO?!

That makes more sense Laney, thank you.

Anytime.

When you say something like "I'd have to say because of there sense of family, which co-exists with there violence. It is like a life that I would want to live." I take that as I wanna live a life of violence. If you don't mean it like that you need to clarify. Especially since someone like me who actually lives that lifestyle knows what that life is like.

You could give him the benefit of the doubt, though, and let him explain what he meant before tearing him off a strip.

Why thanks Rune. Next time I'll be sure to ask you before I do or say anything else. You can even take over my duties as Mod if you want.

Drake and I agreed on something. Somebody get the camera out to capture the moment.

Okay, I need to know something.

How exactly was my comment offensive? Does your moderator status mean that no one can offer you advice?

Let's stay on topic and leave this thing alone. But, I love sarcasm.

I like them because of the jetpacks they (sometimes) wear. Jetpacks are cool.

"Who is this person who speaks to me as though I needed his advice? ..."   -Longshanks   Braveheart

"You do your job, pencil neck, don't tell me how to do mine! ..."  -Police Chief   Ghostbusters

"Still, the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that there are wolves in the land. They would prefer that he didn’t tell them where to go, or give them traffic tickets, or stand at the ready in our airports in camouflage fatigues holding an M-16. The sheep would much rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go, “Baa.”"  -Lt. Col. Dave Grossman  Killology

"Why thanks Rune. Next time I'll be sure to ask you before I do or say anything else. You can even take over my duties as Mod if you want."  -Sean  Brothers All

To cut to the point, questioning the practices of someone who has been placed in a position of authority in a public forum will always elicit a firm negative response.  The authority figure in question is not necessarily defending him or herself, but the integrity of the position.  If the person in authority has made a mistake, pointing it out in public is not appropriate.  Ever.  There are channels of redress.  People to appeal to.  This is advice not just for here...but for society at large.

If I give a speeding ticket, the one thing that will not help the situation is for the driver (or passenger, or passer-by) to try to tell me how to do my job...whether it's "You should be more polite" or "my taxes pay your salary!"or "It wouldn't kill you to just give him a break this one time!" or "There's no way I was going that fast...your radar is broke or you don't know how to use it right!"

If I am truly in error, the best thing to do is take it to my boss.  They will then decide.

There is responding firmly to defend your position, and then there is slamming a member who irritates you. I've been a mod. I was a moderator for two years on a site more active than this one. I've dealt with members who repeated got on my nerves and I'm aware that I'm probably one of those members for Sean. But I'm not an idiot, and I would appreciate it if Sean, specifically, wouldn't treat me like one. If he had responded like you did, instead of shooting me a sarcastic comment, I wouldn't have had a problem with it.

All I'm saying is that a little more consideration would go a long way.



And if you would rather I send this to Amy, I will.

All I am saying is that sending a mod complaint to Amy is the only...the ONLY...proper course if you have a problem with a mod that cannot be solved in PRIVATE.

 I believe you were a mod.  I don't doubt that.  I'm even willing to go so far as to say you were likely good at it, though I have no way of knowing.  I'm only giving you some advice in dealing with people who have authority.  Sorry, make that Authority.  (capital A).

Sean doesn't need me to talk for him, or explain anything.  I just know that in his real job, he is 'capital A' authority.  He has said on numerous occasions that he treats the members of this forum like his marines.  I'm willing to bet that his marines do not try to point out his perceived errors in public. 

When a member of the public gets pissed at me, I give them my badge number and TELL them: 'contact my supervisor and make a complaint', because I believe in the way I do things.  My supervisor will adjust me in person if I require it, just as I'm sure Amy will correct any of her mods if she has a problem brought to her, and she agrees that it is a problem.

I'm ready and willing to discuss this at length with you Rune in PM if you wish, as would Amy or Sean I bet.  No need to get hot under the collar here ner vod.

ME? Never... Just a spirited disagreement. I'm not a troll, I'm just a gnome.

It's to show your driving skillz in a head to head duel of the fates.

I think.


Okay. We REALLY need to get back on topic. Even I am saying that.

But, I can't think of anything so I am going to leave this topic be now.

*Cough*

To be honest, I wasn't in love with the mandalorians until Canderous essentially told Reven mandalorians take over the galaxy for sport. I'm a fan of global, or in this case galactic, domination. It's right up my alley.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?
