My my....look at what I started.

In the best interest of everyone involved, I suggest the flame war stop. Obviously RabidFox and I had a disagreement. I thank everyone on the forums who supported me. You have renewed my faith in the DF boards. Your support is appreciated.

P.S. In case anyone is wondering why I haven't responded to any private messages, its because I changed my email in my profile after RF's first PM to me. That account I don't monitor.

You cannot even tone down the rhetoric to even have a decent discussion MM.
How incredibly sad.
Honestly, you show no wish or anything to fix the situation.
You just continue stoking it like your life depends on it.
Again, how incredibly sad.

Well, what is good for the goose is good for the gander.
Enjoy.


So people can flame DF to their heart's content and no one should say anything in opposition?
Is that not a double standard YC and brvheart?

So my phrasing is off you say, but does that absolve him of his responsibility as a member of this community to keep up on his reading?


DF put this forum together to get feedback from the community. Some of that feedback will be negative. How else will DF improve their product? Surely Stephan and Jeff are not so narcissistic that they require nothing but praise to be rained down upon them. If they feel the need to defend their product or practices from a comment, they will do it. They don't need you to act as some half-assed proxy for them.


There is a HUGE difference between negative feedback to DF and the infernos you and others have tossed DF's way MM.
Your own postings make it impossible for you to hide from that fact.

So when are going to stop being a rude individual and start spelling Stefan's name right?
Are you just trying to see if you can get his goat and have him post so you can flame him for being mean to you?

Who made you god MM so that you can say that honesty and right cannot be defended and dishonesty and wrong canot be unveiled by others here on the forum other than your little circle of friends?

Nobody has a "responsibility" to keep up with anything. Do you think other members of this forum are responsible to you, me, or anybody else? If you don't want to answer a question, DON'T. You don't have to fire off some condescending thinly-veiled flame at someone just because you don't like their question.

So you expect to be spoon-fed with the silver spoon all your life MM?
You really are playing to the mob, are you not MM?
How can this forum even properly function if everyone here has no responsbility to keep up and not throw wild lies about how DF is not holding their hands at all times.

I do not like wild accusations MM, not questions.
Your own filters and other folks like you with the same filters took an honest message with accurate answers and turned it into the blob you have.
Did you enjoy yourself?
I hope so because otherwise what a total waste.

This forum is about opinions. You should not flame somebody for stating their opinion if it differs from yours. Why can't you just say "I disagree" instead of telling them they are stupid, ignorant, whiney, or whatever else you throw at them?

I did originally just simply stated I disagreed with several matters here on this forum.
Then you and your buddies MM decided I could not be allowed to disagree with your "god-like" opinions.
Then when I took you more seriously to task, you cried even more and loudly and made false accusations that I am exactly what you really are here.

And I knew you would not take me up on my offer; you are a coward that likes to snipe at others from the shadowy anonymity of these forums. Clearly you have some deep-seated inferiority that causes you to have to belittle others to feel potent.

So I am coward, eh MM?
I once read the saying that said, "One man's coward is another man's wiseman."
I think that was Einstein actually.
I remember Lord Byron saying, "I would rather be known as a coward than prove that I am a fool because I am neither and my friends know that."
Well, I am most certainly neither the fool you hoped nor as stupid or vain you wished I was and take up up the fool's bargain you proposed.
It is always easy to accuse someone of cowardice MM, but your postings prove you to be the fool.

What shadows MM?
Those seems to be your speciality - for both you and your hero.
I am clearly in the light here.

Your painfully sad attempts at comebacks are so pitiful that one must feel sorry for you.
I wonder how many accusations and names you levy at me are ones that professionals have diagnosed you with.
They seem to come easy to your fingertips.

And oh yeah...you're still a cock.

As far as you are concerned, I am sorry to say MM, but you are still a joke, a really sad caricature of a human being.

Now, with all that being said, where are we going now?
You hate, no, detest, no, abhor me; that is obvious.
Are you going to perpetuate your spewing of rancor?
Or are we going to get back to discussions about the real subject of this forum - how DF really helps us all have fun in gaming and how we can improve DF's situation so that they can continue to feed our love of Master Maze?
Morever, can all do it without the bitching, moaning and whining that has been so prevalent in the past year?
Yours and your cronies' choice.

I wondered why the PM just sat in my outbox.
My complements on the manuever.

Yes, we disagreed.
Why you took it the way you did is beyond me, but I am most certainly willing to settle the matter.
Whether or not MM will listen to your suggestion, only time will tell.
I am willing to agree to a cessation of hostilities if I am not further attacked.

The BIG question dikydd is, "Were you finally able to make your order?"
All I was trying to do in the first place was aid you.
I even apologized for my tone in that PM in the PM itself.
I still really do not understand why you took it the way you did.
AND I do not need THE cronies opinion here why, okay?
dikydd's would be enough.

What really matters on this forum is whether or not we are having real fun with our MM and how we can aid in DF's continuing survival?
Is it not?

I attempted to honestly assist someone, and others here took it as an opportunity to try to tear me down.
As is said, "The dogs have failed and the lion/tiger/bear still stands."
The animal changes with where in the world you live.

I will comply if I am not continuing to be attacked.
I have simply countered the slashes made at me.

Ok. Hostilities ended.

FYI: It WAS the sentence "if you had bothered to read the forums..." that triggered all this.

Just so you know.

Oh...and no, I haven't ordered. I also am somewhat uncomfortable faxing my CC#. I guess it's ebay for me.

Thank you for responding dikydd.

So, that sentence then.
Did the apology about tone in the PM mean nothing then or was just ignored or missed?

I understand the CC concerns.
Have you thought about posting an order to DF?
I am sure Jeff would cooperate with such a method.

I have done some purchases across eBay too.
A word of concern here though:
I have received MM is in pretty ratty condition when it was advertised as new dikydd.
One seller insisted that it was all brand new.
Meanwhile the pieces were not even in their plastic bags and the felt was damaged on the bottom of most of the pieces.
I just sucked it up because I had won the bid at a ridiculously low price.

Taking the effort to post a MO or the like to DF guarantees actual new MM without the rolling of chance dice on eBay dikydd.

Have a great day!

I threw out all of my plastic bags. Too much of a hastle. You can always refelt the bottoms RF.

The issue is that it was sold as "new".
The seller was not honest in their listing.
Since 1998 when I joined eBay, I have found more and more dishonesty there over the last few years.
Makes one a lot more leery about making purchases there unless you have a history with the seller.

True, which is why I try and not buy from anyone with less than a 99% rating and rarely from new sellers.

Sometimes though brvheart, you just have to take that chance on the new seller:
*The item may be something important to you as the bidder.
*The price cannot be ignored.
*Lastly, someone took a chance on us so it is just that we try to give others a start as well.

I definitely understand the percentage issue.
If someone is below 99.6%, for me, I start trawling through the feedback for the last year.
Sometimes lower percentages can be from an early learning period, and they have learned to do better since.
Sometimes, screwy sellers or bidders can issue damage that is no where near just or even pertinent to what happened.
I try to take that into consideration.
Also, where are the negatives from is an issue.
They all might be from one region or one type of region that for some reason the seller has a hard time dealing in.

Where are you at brvheart?
I am at only 270 with one negative.
I am targeting 500 for my purple star, but that is going to be a long haul.

Do you think they should make more cutoffs with more different and/or multiple stars?
I heard from folks who think so.
Just wondering what you and others here's opinions are.

I am a newbie in comparason, only 23 100%. I don't use Ebay a lot, just enough to learn what to and what not to do.
