Akardam: Regarding the current developments.Author: SM_007 ()

I would have preferred to wait and speak to you, kwerkey and Ravage! when I got home from school today, but the way things are carrying on have basically forced me to log into the forum from a school computer in the library (when I could and should probably be doing work) so I can make a post on some of the conclusions I have reached thus far regarding what has been happening. Keep in mind that these are not exactly decisions which I have had a lot of time to think about, nor are they my final decisions. But these are my current feelings. No more, no less.
First of all, I do think that the overreaction to you not using the [NT] button as opposed ot putting the letters "(nt)" was a bit unessecary. Although almost everyone was joking around (including kwerkey, I assume), I don't see why some people here are becoming anal-retentive over the decision for you not to use the button. Sure, it's annoying, and yeah, you're stubborn, but at the time, that was your porogative. So to that degree, I don't see the big (serious) problem with you not using the [NT] button.
But I think that's as far as I can agree, unfortunately. There is no way that I am going to "punish" kwerkey, remove his Moderator tag, or even chew him out. I am letting him know with this post that he should be more careful, since it is true that editing posts when it's unessecary is not aloud. But even as I say that, I know that both me and Tridus have edited posts in the same fasion in the past, which was usually for comical effect, and no one was offended by it. That doesn't make it right, really, but the fact remains that it was in good fun and the people who's posts were edited (it was mostly us editing each other's posts) were not mad. So no, editing posts for that reason isn't aloud, though kwerkey really did not cause any harm for his actions (in fact, his adding an [NT] onto your posts was even less harmful than when me and Tridus edited posts in the past), and I don't think he needs to apologize for something that was met to be in good humour.
But you do need to apologize. You need to apologize to people like Psycho Sam! and Ravage! whom did nothing to warrant your heated comments. At least, Ravage! has done nothing wrong in THIS forum to warrant your words, and that is what matters. There are others, too, who I am sure were offended by your actions in here as of late, including the threats you made towards kwerkey and Ravage!. That is why, in the interest of professionalism, I am asking you to do the right thing and apologize to the Riptide staff and the community members who reside here. Where we go from this is another issue, but for right now, that's what I am asking. I'm sorry. I hope you take some time to cool down before you make a hasty decision, though.
I don't need any other replies to this post. It'll only spark another debate.
That is all I am going to say for the moment. See you all when I get home.
