Born in 2010

I was just looking back at some old postings...

I actually registered on this system in 2010!
I've been following it for what? 8 years?
Christ!
I'm 58 years old and I'm still following this system!

There must be something wrong with me.

OMG!!!

Hey! Ashot, Yar, both of you shut the hell up! Your yapping is worse than my mother's. I can't take it anymore!
---END QUOTATION---



Look, I was born earlier than you in 2009, but am still younger than you, 54. Well, this is the Zone after all. There are many weird things happen here.

For instance, look at Grigorovich. He left the Zone and thought he was free, but he wasn't. The Besom calls.

So that's how this goes, bro.

Regarding your post, I have a saying: "The splinter you seek to remove from someone else's eye and the beam of wood in your own is usually the same kind of wood."

---QUOTATION---
Recently in another place on the Forum I made a simple greeting to
another Forum member I had known for 10 years and in return I was
exposed to their 10 year resentment towards me for not supporting their
Mod.
---END QUOTATION---


I note that you didn't link the discussion you reference because it is exactly the opposite of what you claim. I told you over and over again: I appreciated your opposition because it helped make the ZRP more vanilla. It's you who was the one evidently upset by my observation that your vocal opposition helped promote the ZRP. The conversation (such as it was) started on page 338 of the ZRP thread:

---QUOTATION---
https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_id=11786&page=338&sec_id=16
---END QUOTATION---


You continued:

---QUOTATION---
In those 10 years, that same person would follow my many posts
talking about playing SoC in various play throughs and they would constantly
interject that their Mod would fix this and that of things I mentioned. I
never let this bother me because I knew they were trying to be helpful
and I learned something at the same time. However their Mod was not
what I wanted that had been wrongly identified over time in the Community
as being bug fixes when it was actually a Mod.
---END QUOTATION---


It's always been a bug-fix mod. I'm amazed that you still won't let that go. Changing threads to repeat the error doesn't make it right. You are nit-picking on a very minor issue. Yes, I know it's major to you, but it's minor to everyone else. I have an opinion that our work has more validity as a patch than the official patches, because we know more about the game than the replacement developers who put out the patches.

Even you don't use the latest patches for SoC or CS.

---QUOTATION---
So going back to the recent
incident, I had a healthy conversation with this person, and as both of us
are adults, we reached a point where we agreed to disagree. I have no
intention of trying a similar endeavor in the future in the same place and
I would imagine that he will most likely stop bugging me to use his Mod.
Simply put I won't walk on his lawn and I assume he will do the same
and neither of us have to worry about any behavior spreading elsewhere.
---END QUOTATION---


The conversation was heated, not healthy; your name-calling is wrong and not conducive to a discussion. I have never "bugged" you or anyone to use the ZRP. I simply stated facts about what it was and what it did for the player. You would tell a player with the permanent radiation bug to go back to an earlier save, and I'd point out that he could save hours of replay by installing the ZRP which would instantly fix the bug when he loaded his last save.

As for the lawn-walking business, I never made any agreement with you -- I simply stopped answering your erroneous posts, which by then had moved past bad analogies into personal attacks. When I thanked others for pointing out the uselessness of my responses to your mind-made-up attitude and you then went after them, I realized that you would always want to have the last word, and your posts speak for themselves.

Show me where we agreed to disagree. You had this "apology":

---QUOTATION---
My mistake was thinking it would be something that could be done, a
barebones patch, not realizing I was dealing with other people's egos and
the perception that I was asking to cannibalize their intellectual property.
After all, what possible incentive could there be asking someone to reduce
the use of and decrease the fame and importance of their Mod with bug fixes
that already meets the barebones requirement and does more? Silly me, and
I see the error of my ways and I won't be asking for something no one wants
to deliver. My apologies for being a butt about this and not understanding that.
---END QUOTATION---


That's really not an apology. You ignored my answer and pretended it was my ego even though I pointed out that it wasn't practical: there was/is no consensus on what was a bug. The ZRP already let you decide what to keep and what to leave out, with just a little setup process. You wanted me to do a lot more work for your specific definition because you didn't want to trouble yourself to configure your game. Even MrSeyker pointed out that no one really wanted a bug-fix mod, and you praised him for what amounted to the same observation as mine.

Anyway, I was leaving you alone -- and then you dragged me back in here with your strange interpretation of what went down between us, giving me a convenient point of entry to defend someone who won't defend himself.

---QUOTATION---
Why do I mention this? Because in the middle of that conversation with
the other person, BobBQ decided to revert to his bully Moderator behavior.
---END QUOTATION---


It wasn't in the middle, it was when you first started. I said I agreed with his sentiment; you were bringing out your frustration with the ZRP (that it's not a pure bug-fix patch) in the ZRP thread instead of starting a new thread. I note that he didn't add anything else to the thread. He attempted to reach Don Reba to no avail. I don't think Don Reba is accessible at the moment, or he would have censured BobBQ's post -- and every one of your posts that involved personal attacks. (Insulting my wife, Tejas Stalker? My wife?)

From my perspective, you are in violation of the clause relating to abusive and offensive content:

---QUOTATION---
"Messages/threads with abusive and offensive content addressed to any user or site administration will be deleted/locked at discretion of the administration without any notice."
Source: https://gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&mode=register&action=view_rules
---END QUOTATION---


There is a proverb: "The kisses of an enemy are abundant, but faithful are the wounds of a friend." I attempted to give you constructive criticism as a friend, albeit badly-timed; I didn't realize how much you really weren't a friend. I had only addressed your content and tried to help you to understand how your attitude was the problem, but instead of considering that, you engaged in specious off-the-wall arguments and insultingly addressed my character and that of others on GSC, on Reddit, and even a member of my family who has nothing to do with you.

You just won't let this go. BobBQ isn't going to respond to your continuing personal attacks on him. But I'm not going to sacrifice my freedom to defend the right of anyone to hold an opinion different than yours or anyone else's, just for the sake of peace.

---QUOTATION---
I stand corrected. Everything that I said here about that other person and
assumed, I have now been proven wrong. Looks like I have another grudge.
---END QUOTATION---


I didn't mean to blindside you. I started composing a reply, stopped to finish a home-improvement project, took a break and answered a few questions on Reddit.

Why can't you just let your beef with BobBQ go? He has the right to do whatever he wishes with his intellectual property. It may have been in frustration over the lack of moderation of your posts, but he can do what he wants. Your cartoon was mean and not at all reflective of the truth: You were the one to figuratively stick a stick between the spokes. There's no moderation at the moment and you both should have been censored, so he decided to move on. He's not bothering you any more.

And why do you have to consider "snarky" anyone who makes a simple observation as bdoomed did? Is it because the opinion expressed differs from your own? Why is that such a problem for you? Why didn't you follow your own advice about just ignoring it? It's just banter, and definitely not as insulting as your cartoon was.

bdoomed~

It's pretty simple.

Don't like my boring posts? Don't read them.

Find them a good reason to leave the Forum? Then leave the Forum.

Don't remember your insults and then turn around and make another?

I can't help people with poor reading, writing & comprehension skills.

My advice to you if you don't like discussions, debates or arguments...

Don't keep interjecting yourself in the middle of one prolonging it.
