It’s almost impossible to detect tone via text... so....

I don't recall saying anything about "fair or unfair". You are imagining things. I stated the situation to the best of my knowledge. Nothing more, nothing less...
In fact, I recall being very respective of what all is entailed. If you think otherwise then you are unbelievably misguided.

Well you can respond like a total pompous ass, like you, I suppose?
Are you basing my intent and merit on past post counts and registration date? You are certainly alluding to this.
What makes me a "new guy"?
I'm not new to the community despite you not recognizing this nickname, or me registering at some arbitrary date because I was in a position to help. The entire community has actually been quite estranged since the death of other sites, but you know that. Don't you.
You are just being flippant.
If you think my post count reflects my intent, malcontent, or otherwise. Well... You are naïve, and personally I really don’t care what you have to say because it seems you are just trying to stir up shit.
I think you like the idea of something dying and revel in the drama it causes which is why you are dramatizing this like I'm trying to "pull a fast one on you".
Are you happy with the result?

What a worthless comment. Are you trying to antagonize me? How sad...

Despite my post count, or whatever irrrational mumbo jumbo wishwash you wish to attack me with...
You wouldn't know anyways. Would you?
I could be a quite respected member of the community, and I could do the same thing that happened with quakesrc. Couldn't I?
You will never know what will happen in the future and unfortunately, I don’t have a crystal ball that is functioning at the moment so I guess were all fucked on that one. Despite my best intentions you still attack me?
You know nothing of me as you have stated. Is it as naive to assume the worst as it is the best? Of course. Use your head.
I'm in a position to help. I offered that help. If you want to flame me for doing that then more power to you, buddy. Congratulations.

Good for you? Nice way to alienate an entire segment of people in the community, however, despite the talent (or lack thereof as you insinuate) involved there.
It is an important part of the community whether you choose to belittle them or not. Especially in regards to me, which just isn't fair to them. Classy. Pure Class.
Shame on YOU
