    Well, I think I'm ending my member status today guys.. was nice knowing you all.. feel free to email me at dsbsky@homail.com of u want.. I am in disagreeance with the way wazzle is allowed to say things like "this is fucking stupid and so is anyone who does it" and "i said that to test your response" as if he has some right to use members like their his fun toys for personal experiments.. i tried talking to a mod, tried talking to a super mod.. no change in their standing.. so time for me to make my leave.. I can't be part of a forum where immature children are allowed to stand over it's members with a magnifying glass as if their ants and the sun is out.. sorry.. take care all.. I get an infraction for telling someone off and he doesnt for cussing out and insulting a whole room? lol.. not to mention insulting america in general.. maybe thats not offensive to alot of people.. but i am very patriotic and it offends me.. anywho.. was fun.. gr8 knowing u.. I'm just not comfortable with things so I do what any man with balls does.. my own thing.. just like the past 30 years..lol..and the next 30 to come.. :toast:

    I think that sux. I also believe Wazzle should have had SOME kinda punishment, even if it was only 5-10 points (or whatever).

    Whats funny is that you and I were both going at wazzle with the same language/examples/intent. I never recieved ANY infraction. Thats probably because I didn't take it up with any mods or super mods.

    Props to you for taking action, and it sux your leaving, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Best of luck

I'm to old to play these games.. lol.. So I guess I'll put my two cents in the piggy bank until I find somewhere to invest it again..

    lol no.. but I tried for a resolution that was acceptable to me and it's not going to happen.. I am left with no options now.. yea it does kinda suk.. I actually like this forum.. Met some great people, learned how to build and overclock and everything I know about computers now through this site and links and helpful people. there is a vast wealth of knowledge here that anyone can appreciate.. I just can't shake the feeling of the kid with the magnifying glass..It leaves me always thinking now "whens my next infraction" i know if i came into the rooms tomorrow and said those things, i would dang sure recieve some. but it's beyond me to enter a topic and go straight to cussing on a tangent.. i only get aggravted at commentary sometimes.. not a topic..lol..and i definitely don't feel I have the right to tell people their "fucking stupid"..lol.. how can that not be insulting? I can't even understand that... waz says hey your all fucking stupid.. i say hey shut up toolbag and grow up and quite a bit more, I was well deserving of an infraction i feel.. but still i didnt say your all fucking stupid..lol.. It's just funny cause he said it? it's ok because it wasnt a normal member? i just cant see the logic..

    Its a shame you feel the need to go bud, Im 35 and sometimes get the feeling there are some condecending attitudes round here. But I just put it down to the fact that some peoples ages mean that they haven't got the life experience to know how to talk to people properly, and the fact that this is the internet. Bet your bottom dollar they wouldn't dream of talking like that to your face. Good luck!

    lol im an ex con... no one talks like that to me.. it's simply not acceptable.. no one tells me "your fucking stupid" to my face and doesnt deal with the consequences.. thats the problem.. the above the law attitude.. face to face people dang sure dont talk like that.. the fear of a high speed fist is a sure fire deterrent lol.. there is a serious lack of respect going here that I just can't tolerate.. I have never tried to intimidate people by saying "ill kik ur ass" but the fact is, knowing that is a possiblity in face to face convo makes people respect eachother lol.. even people i have fought i end up being cool with after because im adult enough to move on and get over it.. I try to avoid it though.. it's just not worth it to go around beating people up lol.. comes a time when you have to try to figure out a better way to "earn" respect.. it's not something that is given.. and telling me im "fucking stupid" is not a way to get it.. that is a fist offense..lol... ( no im not saying I want to punch wazzle lol) not at all.. but I am saying the only thing a bully understands is an ass whooping.. it just it what it is..lol..

    They're in contract for at least one season in '08 (fucking stoked!). As far as I know, FOX hasn't decided whether to air them or not. Will be on Comedy Central at least.

    Also, most if not all of the voice actors have agreed to return.

    Since episodes generally take about six months to make, it's so god-damn excited just to know they're being worked on as we type!

    Idk, why leave? I can understand that getting caught up in semantics and overall forum culture can piss anyone off. I think that yeah, he says some stupid shit sometimes he's an overall good mod, and knows his stuff when it comes to computers. Stick around man.

    lol u wanna know what really got me? besides this..

    quote "This is fucking stupid, and so is anyone who does it.

    All those who participate in this will just buy extra gas on the day after, completely neutralizing any amount of "boycotting" for one day.

    If you want to make a difference, then you have to enact lifestyle changes. Drive less, ride a bike to work, carpool etc.
    This is just a great example of how lazy Americans have become, cant even create a real boycott." end quote..

    and this is his resonse after i made my comment about how that comment he made was not cool..

    "I'm american too, everyone; so you can stop your whining now.

    I live in Seattle, the most literate city in the US.

    It doesnt matter how much you work, we're still lazy as hell intellectually. We (most of us) have just been taught to be good slaves to consumer culture.
    I bet you all feel smart now, eh? I was curious to see what kind of reaction that comment would gather, my prediction was spot-on.

    the second thing bugged me more than the 1st to be honest.. "I was curious to see what kind of reaction i would get"? he said..

    lmao.. is that a joke? or do u really feel like your superior enough to all of us that you have in some way earned the right to play with people and say things specifically designed to piss people off? what this means, what was said..

    in lamens terms is this.. "I used u all like tools for my fun and so what, I don't care how u feel about it"

    even had to throw another insult in there with the "i bet u all feel smart now" your prediction? lol as if.. allow me to explain what that means in lamens terms..

    it means : "I am smarter than you and I expected this type of response because im so dang smart and your so dumb so playing with you like a tool because im smarter is ok"
    fyi... thinking your smarter than everyone is condesending and arrogant..

    thats an insult to my intelligence for one.. and for two.. bullshiz..lol.. thats such a lame attempt to cover up the plain and simple fact that what was said was offensive.. a back pedal from what should clearly be considered offensive and an attempt to cover it up..

    even in the response their is no remorse about cussing out the whole room.. it goes right to blaming everyone but himself.. well no one else said "your all fucking stupid" and no one else said "im just going to use u like play toys to see how u respond to certain things" i am not here to be your lab experiment. save that crap for your friends.. who wouldn't be your friends for long if thats truly the type of behavior you think is acceptable..
    it's just bullshiz..lol.. There should be a reprocussion..

    Well, stick around and find out bud. As you've said, you HAVE gained some good knowledge here, and karma has a nice way of coming around to bite those who overstretch their re-mit. We need older people (and I include myself in that group!) to provide balance, and if you go you won't be around to see their come uppance, LOL.

    Heh. Karma doesn't work like that, contrary to popular belief. Karma affects your next life and not the current one.

    Hey, take it up with Siddhartha.

    But it'll be abused if someone simply doesn't like someone else. Like that law that says you cannot complain about your neighbor's dog unless you get another neighbor to complain as well.

    "Hey! You hate Smith two houses down. Me too! Let's complain."
