Since this is the only place I can counter the claims against me. If you’re not involved, don’t worry about it. And if you want my new Tumblr, let me know.
Now, for the cut. And yes, it’s long.
“Doc has fraternized with other members as well. In the past, I caught him cheating on Cat/Cheshy(A forum member who he was dating), with other people, telling him that he loved them and such, and tried to establish relations with them, though they wouldn’t have any of it.”
I can confirm this, being said person (or one of said people, I honestly don’t know) who ‘wouldn’t have any of it’.
I’m just going to say this now. The entire ‘oh, this was a bide for power’ thing? It’s bullshit. The Doctor’s behavior was unacceptable, and if anyone wants to ask me about it, I’ll gladly share my feelings on the matter.. Hell, I might be able to drum up my old chat logs, if that would please you people. I don’t care if it was ‘personal matters’ or ‘off forum matters’, if I had been in the mods’ position, it would have happened a long time ago. With less explanation.
Why the hell am I saying anything? Because I don’t like seeing people slam a friend, when I very well -know- that what’s been said isn’t true.
I could get petty if I wanted to. I could state, at length, -exactly- how I feel about the situation with the admin change. As it is, doing so would probably force people to look at things they’d rather not.
I’m not very active on the forum, never was, but I’ve been in the skype chat for a good while now, and I’ve done nothing if not watch. There have been people I haven’t cared much for, but didn’t have anything against, there have been friends made, there have been people I honestly haven’t gotten to know. There’s only one person I’d personally judge as a danger to forum/skype members to have around. I kept quite about the situation for a -real- fucking long time, I’ve pretended that things were cool. I’ve minimized things. I minimized things when I talked to Zander about it. Even now I’m minimizing things, for fear of stirring shit. I don’t like the possibility of being wrong about a person’s character, when I only have possible chat logs and a gut feeling to go on, but to be completely honest, I care too much about you people. I might have been okay with sitting to the side while the whole thing panned out, but not with the shit being flung at the mods who, as far as I know, never attempted to emotionally manipulate forum members. If I were them, I’d be pretty fucking pissed. Personally? I’d drop my mod hat and leave. This tumblr shit thrown around? Did it really have a fucking point besides throwing shit? I can understand mods getting pissed and saying shit, when the hypocrisy is so fucking evident here, with the creator chat bs. What Chase did? With banning Rach? Probably wasn’t handled well, but when someone is acting like that, some action needs to be taken. Kudos to at least doing something about it. But don’t continue to act like there’s no similarities between the two situations. Because holy shit, there is, I’d only say there’s a difference with the severity of the issues, but that’s probably only because I don’t know the details.
So I’m pissed. Rach’s behavior warranted action, but Doc’s didn’t? Am I missing something here? Should I have made a fucking stink about it? Okay, I’ll give you that, I probably should have, but when you slowly start to realized that someone you confided in and considered a good friend has used sensitive information shared in confidence to try to manipulate you into letting them into your pants? You kind of just want to take a step back and pretend the whole thing ‘wasn’t a big deal’.
I don’t care if you guys lose respect for me because of this. I really don’t at this point. I feel this needed to be said. When someone fucks with my friends, I get pissed, but I can only speak of -my- experiences. I feel I have a right to do that much. Understand, on one hand I have friends I worry about, I don’t want them to go through my situation. I’m paranoid enough to instantly detach the moment I smell something fishy, but that’s not exactly the norm. So I worry. On the other hand, I have the friends who were actually doing something to prevent situations like that from happening in the future getting called names and being accused of covering shit up and making grabs for power.
To the mods: I’m sorry, I’d say more, but I don’t want to stir the pot more than I already have. If people ask me questions, I’ll answer them privately, but I won’t drag other people into it, or answer anything that could be considered speculation or ‘not my bsns’.
To everyone else: I’m pissed, I think some of your behavior is downright disgusting, but I don’t actually harbor any ill will towards any of you. I don’t even really have any harsh judgements on your character as a person, and I sure as hell won’t be making any petty jabs at any of you. I do want to warn you and say that I view behavior like the Doc exhibited as srs fucking bsns. I will not bend on my thoughts on this. I will, however, do my best to bite my tongue and simply not reply when I might otherwise be typing in ragelock.
