Re: Rumors!

Well, war crimes are despicable, anything on an Internet forum might be a level or two below that. I told him in a private message to not post his entire stream of consciousness on the forum. Oy, this is gonna be a long one... Like when I was mixed up in the rumors situation, you sent me this: "You...

Re: Rumors: A Historical Record of Mystery

Well that would explain the renders that couldn't be found elsewhere. This has at least gotten farther than past theories.

Re: Rumors!

But to claim there isn't a problem here displays the same blindness as the Consortium die-hards. That's interesting. See I didn't think I was being condescending at all. I certainly didn't intend that. What did you find condescending about my post? Since were hashing it all out -- your post is pret...

Re: Rumors!

I'd say hand-wringing, not whining. It's a lot of well-intentioned people worried about a lot of other people's hurt feelings. I certainly don't want to scare off new-comers. On the other hand, sometimes it's clearly not a good fit. Some people will be happier somewhere else, and that's just the wa...

Re: Rumors!

I know these aren't in response to me, but who said arguing is bad? I'm just confused how it became the topic. I'm here because I love the debate-heavy atmosphere myself. Nobody I know personally said they're gone because people argue with them too much... Some take argument as criticism. When lurk...

Re: Rumors!

I just hope all of our productive thought and debate isn't just lost to "Man, this thread huh?" and a lock.

Re: Rumors!

I'd find it respectful for you not to mention my leaving or posting habits anymore. Thank you I agree. The whole talking you in the 3rd person got pretty overboard here. That said, you were kind of a central character in both the SSC vs. urbanmsp squabble and the whole Texas_RE thing. And my last w...

Re: Rumors!

Well put MNdible. I think this is a key point. I'm not hung up about building an online community of Urban love. I'm looking for a rough and tumble free exchange of ideas, with people who can give as good as they get. I'm tired of people thinking all opinions have equal weight and merit. If you mis...

Re: Rumors!

Wow, so much misrepresentation of ideas here to make them sound more stupid. I was responding directly to David and his ongoing patronizing comments. But beyond that, you're not understanding my point (probably my fault). This forum is what it is and is run the way its run. Some people like it and ...

Those feelings, real, not a hoax. Yet this image from a couple pages ago makes it seem like it's entertaining for Nick.

Re: Rumors!

:D Sorry, I'm huge into the art of debating. Don't just write me off as obsessed. I'm just eager to point out weak arguments and fallacies because a strong argument with good points is what pushes me (and others) to learn. Of course I know that's what bugs most people about me, and some people point...

Re: Rumors!

See David, your knack for taking the "high ground" while being simultaneously condescending is way more annoying to me than Nick's "culture of snark". So different things rub people the wrong way. Like you said, if people can't deal with it they can leave. I'd say the general culture here is much m...

Re: Rumors!

It is the internet, and we’re all grown-ups, and people really need to be able to deal with bruised feelings. I’ve had my verbal run ins with most everybody on the site, and some posters still get under my skin even though I try not to let them. But if I can’t deal with that, I probably shouldn’t b...

Re: Rumors!

Nick is a very serious man, which is why he writes very serious articles for streets.mn like Transportation Emojis: An Objective Analysis I never said he was a bad guy who can't joke. Nick and I (I'm guessing) actually have a similar sense of humor. I've read probably all of his streets.mn posts an...

Re: Rumors!

And I'm not trying to say Nick is the problem, but that attitude from the most recognized member leads to others that have no problem sending their feelings toward one-another in a PM. We act like anyone that thinks Nick could be behind this is some stupid idiot with a grudge. But what they see is t...

Honestly Jake -- if people are avoiding this site because of Nick it's 100% on them. Well yeah, if anyone avoids this site at all it's on them. But Nick posted that he's curating this board to have the best people on it, and touting nasa35 as a success story, and I'm arguing the effectiveness of th...
