I am going to bed now, so I wanna say a few more words: I don't know what people are thinking right now, but if you back up and look at the situation, you'll probably see where I was coming from and see that what happened made sense from my perspective. I didn't know what was going on, so I didn't do anything at all. I just went out to search for some answers. MysteryMan had them, but he would not tell me. That's not a good thing. He's supposed to tell me. I guess he just doesn't get that, but really, in the end, if two people who are moderating a forum keep "secrets," guess how long that is going to last?
The fact that the secret was something stupid and worthless only makes this all that much worse. I agree that there is nothing wrong with people using the name TerinUnit, and I never had a problem with that, or anything of the sort. I had nothing to go by, and MysteryMan wasn't telling me anything, something which I don't feel was right. But I didn't even do anything to him! I just told him that it's his job to TELL us when something is happening. That's all. I didn't really "bitch him out" as bad as some might think. Heck, the only people who were there were my and MysteryMan.
I didn't do anything wrong. I have always had a knack for management. Many agree. Tridus might see me as a newbie, and heck, as far as moderation goes, I might be, thanks to a lack of experience. But that doesn't mean I don't know what to do in a situation or some crap like that. Calling the shots is my forte. If people here think I'm an asshole, then so be it. But all I did was tell MysteryMan that he can't go keeping secrets from me and Tridus when it comes to my site and his forum, and then he flipped out, therefore making me look like a bad guy.
I don't see how anyone could react differently than I did. When I did find out what happened with the TerinUnit name, you know what I did? NOTHING! Because by that point I knew that nothing needed to be done over such a silly, stupid, unowned name. If I had known that in the beginning, things would have been different. Even if I had known this in the beginning, things would not have been different. What would have made this different is if MysteryMan had just told me in the beginning what was happening, like he is expected to. Some people seem to think I expect too much, and that I didn't make it clear that I expected people to do that. Well, that's bullcrap. People should know better.
MysteryMan didn't do anything wrong. To me, it's what he DIDN'T do that bothers me. The TerinUnit crap, and everything that happened with Ravage!, isn't important at all. Forget about that. Think about the fact that I didn't know what was going on, there was a situation that wasn't being taken care of (because the person, who turned out to be Ravage!, said it wasn't being fixed like MysteryMan said), and the moderator who was fixing it wouldn't tell me what was wrong, so I couldn't help my own site out. Think about it that way. So I told MysteryMan that this shouldn't happen, and it's not to happen again. Firmly, but not in some sort of spiteful tone. And then he basically said he did nothing wrong and wants to leave and then it all breaks out in front of you guys.
If you still think I'm an asshole, so be it.
(And the worst part of this? I didn't finish my political thoughts post! YEEARGH!)
We may be through with the past, but the past is not through with us.
