Sorry, I didnt mean to make you think Im trying to get the Easter Dragon as in now. Only meant back in April when I tried breeding it, all I got were Eagles and Firestorm Dragons. The Easter Dragon has been long gone. ;) Thank you so much for making sure I knew that. As far as the Easter Dragon, nope I dont know anything more than you do, other than it was a pain in my backside trying to get, and I never did get it. (>.<) Again thank you for finding my faux pas wording. I edited the post and added a note to state that the Dragon is expired so one one mistakes my meaning and starts to try breeding it. ;)
If you dont mind my asking, you never played WoW did you? We played with a Hunter that named her pet Sasymonster. My son used to tease her and named his pet Monstersas.LOL Im sure its just a cowinkydink, if it is you Hello! and miss you gys. If not sorry to ask, its a great compliment though she was just a really great kid, well young adult rather.
Thanks for the concern.. .And I am, a little. Monetarily things have gotten a good deal better (or are improving a good deal in the coming weeks due to work picking up) but health wise, not so much. Too much going wrong, family too. It's rather strange.
I am still getting rid of a tooth infection (it's been 4 or 5 weeks now...) It got really really bad for a while. (started to escalate exponentially on my birthday of all times!) And the rest of me is still in the same shape, so that was fun! But is okay, you get used to it, hehe.
It's the emotional crap and family troubles that get to me... My mom almost died a few days ago. Barely got out of major Kidney and other organ infections, she went septic from what I have been told (I didn't see the charts and such, so no idea if it was just misused as a term). There are plenty of other troubles, but that was the most shocking to me.
Hard to spend much time on DS (Though I still play daily, just not as much attention paid to it.) with all the continued bad treatment from them... But they're not going to change for me, so I'm done letting it get to my daily life. Hopefully they'll realize their folly, but unlikely.
How are you doing? I'm not really reading the forums (any of them) often, so it takes a while for me to see these notifications. Which means I miss a lot of the conversations about whatever is happening or going on.
Pre-Script note: I don't block people... I don't even know how. But I also don't like to leave things unsaid... So I figured I'd post a reply and if you can read it you can. If you can't then at least I tried!
I appreciate your attempts to explain. It speaks well of you that you care enough to do so. I'm not sure I would have, especially not in the past few days. Things have been rather... difficult. But that's another story.
I also am fine with your decision to block me (again, not sure how though) but I would guess it's redundant. I don't seek out people's posts and try to troll them or anything. I'm far too old for that nonsense.
I do however, as you can clearly see, speak up when something is wrong, regardless of the cause... If all actions were excused based on their reasons we would be in a very bad place in society and civilisation. Which if you're involved in Law at all, you would agree with as fundamentally obvious.
However, I can understand and relate to your reasoning for your words, tone and actions... And I apologize if I offended you. I can say with honesty that offending you was not the purpose of my actions. Though I can see how it could have been seen that way.
As far as censorship/etc... Well that's a rather large gray area on the internet, for reasons already mentioned and more. This is why there are cases that stall out and die all over the place... Take Cyber Bullying. People are even being arrested for it, and these crimes are being upheld in court... In America... Which is just proof-positive that the Constitutional Right to Freedom of Speech is not in place and cannot be fallen on in times of pressure.
Censorship on the other hand is a term thrown about far too often and usually in the improper setting.
There is no law, anywhere, that protects posts on a public forum from being editted, deleted or even changed. Period. This is a simple truth that discounts any possible argument of being "censored" illegally or inappropriately.
There are often rules and regulations on such sites that request that people do not do so. There are even some places where only Admins can edit posts. This isn't a concession to Ammendment 1 - this is just practical. Most sites just don't allow open edits to anything. Even this forum only allows you to remove posts with a reason given. This means only Admins can Censor your post (change the meaning by removing pieces and taking the context away. Which is the simple definition of what Censor really means... Which is to say that Removing a post is not Censorship, as it doesn't just remove "objectionable" phrases and content. It removes everything.)
Ironically I find myself liking you more for your defense than I'd expect. People tend to just start babbling nonsense and stupidity when confronted by someone who doesn't fold... This is refreshing.
However, your second post (which was a little hard to read with the bolding and lack of breaks, this makes your intent a little harder to discern just for future reference.) was a little ranty - which I don't really mind. I left it on my wall. Considering you were ranting at me, with reason, and without being crazy... Well, I'm okay with that. It's not really public despite the fact that anybody can see it.
I do want to clarify, if I can, though.. I am not a bigot, and I did not make any remarks that would say so. I did not make fun of anybody's country (I even pointed out that it is my own, which gives me insight and accuracy that someone not living there would lack) And my assertions (not assumptions) about America in general were accurate. My accusations towards you were only accurate given the assumption that you were a whiny child, which turns out to be incorrect. And for that I am sorry.
However, your continued attacks of my personality and morality are beginning to get old. Your second post seemed to degenerate into a rant with unveiled insults and such. But I'm not worried - I figure I kicked a nerve pretty hard - so I'm not insulted or angry or anything.
I honestly don't recall all the stuff I should talk about in your last note to me, so I can't touch on them all. But hopefully you can come to the conclusion that I'm not "evil" nor do I see "evil" or "fault" in everything. I fall to the same faults as everyone else when dealing with strangers and text... Not everything comes across 100% as intended. And even if it does, strangers sometimes clash.
I love debate and arguing. (if you couldn't tell) but there's no point in arguing this anymore. Not only is the original issue gone, but it seems we both have come to understand our own mistakes.
Thanks for reading and for loving monkeys (they are awesome. I have 100+ of them in the house, stuffed animals of course!) And they always make me (and the baby) smile =)
I'm uncertain as to what you meant to accomplish through your website-translated Latin, but you managed confusion.
Your command of the English language in text seems adequate enough... I'm only left to assume you meant to sound like some sort of threat, or like someone who read too many Harry Potter books. I'm leaning towards "threat" given the example of the rest of your post and the other things I've seen.
I don't use Facebook to "connect" with people... I use it for Dragon Vale, and only then so that I don't lose my island again (it has happened once before). I refuse to put personal information, pictures or statements on the internet for people I don't know to read or talk about. It seems a bit silly in this day and age to say so, but all the people I need to know me and my daily life, do so from the real world.
Honestly, I really don't doubt you're a great person - I don't know you outside of the limited amount of information you've posted on this forum, and even then most of what you've posted has been either out of anger... I get pissed off at this game as much, maybe more than most... Because I didn't know any better before I forked out $100 on stuff early on. Had I known the problems, it would never have happened. But even then I don't post out of pure anger... I've been part of too many moderator teams to do that lightly.
Regardless - I don't get what you were trying to do. And I'd have gladly told you my phrasing in the report box if asked. It turns out that whoever was moderating the forums at the time must have agreed with me and others posting at the time that you were out of line by forum Rules and Standards. Heck, everyone else I talked to who had read it (6 or 7 people who I know and play this and other games) and wanted worse than a "scolding post" done in response. (And that was your term, not mine.)
I'm happy for you if you some how think you are vindicated with your post being put back on the closed thread... But honestly, I don't think anybody else is happy about it. It WAS rude and angry and arrogant... There are no indicators to the contrary... No massive amounts of smiley faces... No crazy use of sarcasm tags... No intimation of sillyness or levity at all. These are the only ways you can turn a scathingly insulting post into a gesture of humor to show frustration on a website such as this one is.
I'm too old and too tired to be scared by some message on a wall that isn't even read every week. I rarely read the wall unless I am told to expect something there from someone I know. I usually don't even read the forum at all anymore - as I've seen nothing good come of the complaining and pleading that has been done here... I do find it rather telling that you waited until after I posted my intent to leave the game to post on my wall. Either you have ironic timing in returning to the forums, or you simply waited until you figured you'd get the "last word".
I've had a really rough day, and I couldn't care much less about some sort of vendetta you feel entitled to. Which is sad, because usually I would greatly appreciate the challenge of debating back and forth as a welcome diversion and exercise for my mind. But after today... Well everything else seems pretty small and gray.
I wish you well, I really do. I also don't think you should be taking out any more frustration on people who are in position here at the forums/wikia. I saw your post to Hyper that seems to have indicated you are hunting for people to persecute. It's petty to do so.
