I'm sick of nearly every single one of you thinking I'm the bad guy. If someone starts something with me, all the blame is put on me. Because it clearly can't be anyone's fault but my own, right? LOL. I am not taking any more crap. I haven't been for the longest time, for about 7ish months now. You don't like the fact that I'm not going to sit here and talk all of this BS from you guys? Fine, put me on your ignore list. I ain't going to lose any sleep over it.

Nowhere is perfect. And nowhere is ever going to be perfect. Putting this place in a bubble like it already is, is only going to make things worse. Discussions and a little arguing is fine. If you can't handle that, get out. Because it's life. Nothing is going to change. I know most of the people who are currently posting regularly, since everyone else was smart enough to just leave, hate me, but I don't really care. It's not my problem. I used to sit here and just take any crap or abuse people would give me because I didn't feel like fighting back. At least someone here is brave enough to just stand up for themselves.

So, if you don't like how I'm handling things, put me on your ignore list. It's there for a reason, don't be so scared to use it. No one is going to make fun of you for using it. But this is it, if someone starts something with me, and I fight back, don't be a coward and then put all the blame on me. And if you try to say "But all of us think it's you." You do realize that every one of you can be wrong, right? Just because you think something is wrong, and you all think it is, doesn't mean it actually is. You can have an argument against 5 people who are all thinking the same thing, and those 5 people can still be wrong. Stop acting like that's impossible.

And no, this thread isn't a thread to bash me. It's simple, if you don't like me, put me on your ignore list. Here's a link for you.
What did I miss?
I don't think I've ever had grief with you, nor you with me.
I'm cool.

There's still a few people who are all fine, but it's not a whole lot. You two are definitely fine. No need to worry!
Well, I'd be careful in regards alright. If someone is really getting at you, this isn't going to help you. It'd be more of a hub.
For those of you not in the know, here's what got him riled up. (Keeps going till the end.)

Look, I don't hate you, but I do think you're getting a little bent out of shape over nothing. Now I'll admit calling you a sperglord was out of line for me, and I'll happily accept a probation for it, but I mean it in a way that you not being self-aware of how small this problem is; and that you don't seem to know when to let it drop. Nobody is being an ass to you. (Well, I'm sorta am now that you're overreacting.)

I honestly would like to know how you're reading that linked post as well as how you're reading this post right now, because frankly if anyone else were read these posts no one would see this as such a big deal.

I want you to take a step back and think back to when you first got banned. Didn't it seem a lot like what you're doing right now? Don't you think it's time to let it go?
You were being an ass with that comment that started the whole thing. That particular conversation was already over before you commented, and you didn't need to comment. But yet you came in, said nobody got it and told me to let it go. The problem was, that conversation was already over. You didn't need to comment on it, thus you started the whole thing.

Urban dictionary meaning of "being an ass"
1. being an ass
Doing rotten things to others...just because you can.

And that's exactly what you were doing.
I'm almost always out of the loop when it comes to these things. All I know of this predicament is that someone said something about DayZ, somebody got mad, and than this happened.

I don't know what happened. I probably don't want to know. Just know that not every one was out to get you here. Most people here are on neutral ground and really like having you as a friend (me included).
Hey guys, lets not drive a wedge or anything. It was a misunderstanding and it escalated a bit. That's how the internet works and how the last one started. Have you guys seen the spriters resource? I'm trying to think of a way to help them. I'm not a web designer but if I can help ya know.

There's quite a few people here who don't like me as it is. I made this topic so that if anyone else doesn't like me, to just put me on their ignore list.

googled grumpy fallout, found these.

I already know I'm going to regret replying here as I really don't feel like arguing but here goes.

As far as I see it (and yes, this is my opinion and I'm not attempting to state it as fact), this isn't a matter of people siding against you in an argument or about there being any grey area about who was "right" and who was "wrong". Ignoring, for the time being, overreactions in the DayZ thread, the issue I see there is that you were derailing the thread by continuing on the same path about people misunderstanding you long after discussion should have just reverted back to the game.

When I said you weren't contributing to the discussion, there was an implied "anything of value" after the word contributing. Yes, you referenced the game but the posts you linked contributed nothing of value to the overall thread - they were sarcastic posts that were misunderstood, evidently, and eventually led us to where we are now.

Beyond that, and again from my opinion, you were the first one to really move into insults. Some of the replies to your posts may have been a little less than polite but yours was the first one to directly attack another member. Again, there's no grey area here. Read the posts and you'll see that's true as well.

I'm completely on board with having an open discussion about any of this with you so I'll leave this thread open and hold off on any further warnings or anything else of the sort for the time being until we arrive at a conclusion. On that note though, if after this discussion, you honestly believe anyone else involved is also deserving of some sort of action, bring it up here and they'll have a chance to explain themselves as well.

Oh, and one or two people ignoring you would be acceptable if only one or two people had a problem with you but if this many people have an issue, half of the forum ignoring you simply isn't an option and you need to take a step back and evaluate if it really is everyone else.
And you know what, none of that would've happened if Lightmatt didn't respond to me in the way he did.

But look at that, it's all my fault. What a surprise. It's never anyones fault but mine.

It's clear as day that if he didn't say what he said, none of this would've happened. You're too fucking scared to actually admit to it as well. He started the whole thing, not me.

and the thread was there to discuss the game. I was discussing the game. There is no other issue involved.
Being scared to admit something and refusing to because it's not true are two very different things. Lightmatt's comment was a bit rude but it certainly didn't justify your reply. Can you really look at them side by side and tell me that you weren't the one who escalated there?
Let's all just chill the f*ck out and play some Mario Kart, mmk?
