I am going to remain a bit more optimistic.

A few things need to change, nothing too huge, but a few. Things would really improve then.

Chuckit I wouldn't call what I was doing as personal attacks. The way I am going about it has nothing to do with nothing happening. I've tried other ways. So has other people.

And people agreeing and going a long just because they don't like marden doesn't help.

Not that I too aren't guilty of doing this. Or that I too wouldn't be biased if I had mod abilities. I WOULD! That is why I'd never put myself into that position.

To use myself as an example, you accuse me of not noticing when Tali does it but noticing when marden does it just because I don't like marden — that is a personal attack. I've flat-out stated that I hardly notice Tali posts at all (looking at their profiles, I see that Tali does not even post once a day, while marden posts at least seven times a day), yet you accuse me of lying about that and go on to insist that I'm just trying to carry out some grudge on marden. I don't know if you intend it to sound that way, but that sort of confrontational "I'm CALLING YOU OUT" approach is insulting and will generally make people want to tune you out, in my experience.

Hey, if that is what you claim is the issue that is the issue. I wont argue with you about it.

I'm just saying, if you want to fight with tooki, that's not going to accomplish anything. A more reasonable tack might not work either, but a 5% chance is better than a 0% chance.

I could make a joke about elves and Mrs. Claus but I don't think I'm going there.
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

You must be a sad and lonely person to be so mean spirited on a public message board.

I am neither sad nor lonely. I only offer you perspective. I think all you people freaking out over this stuff are mean-spirited and obsessed.
