    To tell you the truth, I like it better over there now than the way it was with Atari and especially better than INA. It just seems better organized and easier to find stuff. I'm usually just looking for maps or asking for hardware/UT-related stuff like that anyway. No BSing like I do here and other places.;)

    I think a lot of visitors to the Epic forums can see where the problems actually lie. Look at the Gears versus the UT3 forums. Many of the issues tend to stem from younger, feistier users in the Gears forums and it spills over into the UT3 forums, where it gets amplified. But check out the UDK forums. They are frequented by more mature visitors who are content with sharing/finding information, not airing out their dirty laundry or bitching in general. Seriously, you don't see a lot of threads getting closed/deleted in the UDK forums.

    Sorry, but that's your bit. However you feel about her is strictly between you & her. I don't hold a grudge against you for liking her & I certainly ain't going to hold any grudges against anyone for disliking her. That's their bit.

    I've already told you that I don't visit there, any more.

    Now you already know that not everybody is going to see it that way. Hence the earlier posts by JD & Skakruk.

    It's not about caring if someone does or does not like Flak. It's about hating a person for doing the job they were hired to do.
    My point is why even bother going there to tell people to **** off? If you don't like it there, stop going there. Don't keep going there so you can whine and moan about how you don't like it there. If you hate a restaurant do you stop by and tell them to **** off or do you just go somewhere else? If the former, you must have a lot more spare time than I do.
    They don't like it, but they DO respect it.

    It is not her job to make blatant false accusations against anyone, like she did me. Never once in that thread did I insult anyone directly. Her statement to me about "not needing insults to get my point across -- last warning" was pure horsesh!t. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that. Nobody likes to be falsely accused. Many consider it to be a blatant act of war. That's where the trouble started. I don't dislike her for being a moderator there. What I dislike was the fact that she thought she could get a away this stupid stunt, because she held moderator privileges. Big mistake & more than one person has confided to me that she was out of line.

    I did not set out to tell somebody there to **** off. It happened because it was provoked. She got what she deserved for the reason I stated above & she will think long & hard before doing it to anybody else, if she has any sense. I've already told you twice, I don't go there, anymore. I never posted once there that I didn't like it there, nor did I post here that I didn't like it there, for that matter, until the incident that I described above happened. Sorry, but your restaurant comparison is off the beaten path.

    I can't find any of this on Epic's forums, and, frankly, I have a hard time believing she would accuse you of doing something you didn't do. At any rate, you could have been the better person and just stopped posting there.
    It really doesn't matter if it was provoked. If you shoot someone because they asked you to, you'll still go to jail.

    My restaurant comparison is only off the beaten path if you didn't go back after your ego got bruised.

    You? Nothing. If anything, it's brdempsey69's fault for being a sorry whiner.

    You need to learn to discern the difference between somebody whining & somebody telling it like it is. I'm not complaining about being banned from there. You have got it all wrong. I expected it to happen & I'm merely telling how it came about. It's always easier to tell the next guy "don't cry over spilled milk" than it is to be the recipient of that statement. Would you want somebody telling you not to feel bad about it, if you were falsely accused of a crime that you didn't commit and you had to spend time in jail for for it? Who's kidding who? You'd be downright outraged. And you need to learn to mind your own business.

    Sir Brizz, this is where the trouble started with this statement made by her.

    As I said, I did not insult anybody directly. She had my respect at one point, but this is where she lost it completely. Nobody likes to be wrongfully accused of doing something they didn't do. How you deal with it when it happens to you is your discretion. Myself, I will not put up with it. The shooting example & restaurant example are not good comparisons.

    Funny how I never received a warning or had a culled account in five years time. And I did my share of posting there. Nothing like on these forums, but still.

    Brdempsey, you were banned from an internet forum for telling an administrator to "**** off" after being warned not to use insults.

    Get over it man. For crying out loud. How old are you.

    I've acknowledged that & I'm simply telling how it came about. Has nothing to do with age. You say get over it, but I've got to tell you, I don't feel bad about it or any remorse. I'm simply telling how it came about & I already have told you, I do not tolerate false accusations from anyone.

    It's almost like you're telling me "if somebody shoots at you, get over it, don't fight back". Not going to happen. Sorry.

    I think it has a lot to do with age :) Not fighting back and getting over it is a good sign your over the age of 18... It's the internet, nobody here knows you so let it go.

    Rubbish !! Why don't you let it go & not post responses over what should be no concern of yours. By posting responses, you are opening the door for me to present a counter-case. Don't like that, too bad. Like you said, it's the internet.

    A comparison does not have to be acceptable to you to be applicable. I don't really care what her post to you said, I have no other basis to go off of other than that I know Flak and don't believe she would do what you've accused her of.

    Fair enough. I can see where you are coming from. So be it. Just to let you know, myself & some others don't see it that way, so my stance remains unchanged

    I answered my infraction notice, which I received for "trolling" when I asked Epic (admittedly a bit harsh) to please fix the Orb minimap bug, with "LOL" and got banned.

    You were probably not among the first ten people to request that.

    Epic's moderator's were quite a piece of work :) Not to mention the reasons War Tourist banned cd-key's but I won't get into that. Not here to rip on Epic. Although I can recall the early day's of 2k4 and some of the things FlaK would say in pub's over in-game voice and it wasn't by any means 'mature'. But those day's are long gone, Epic's forums are practically dead bedside's their console titles and this place is a decent alternative so who care's anymore.
