Pretty much my last post here

Post by Diedel » Sun Feb 25, 2007 3:30 pm

Today I have been informed by Topher that my modship here has been withdrawn.

Read more here.

So this is going to be kind of a \"last words\" thread.

To make a long story short: People had felt offended by some of my posts particularly in the E&C and NHB forum areas about 1 1/2 or 2 years ago, and obviously they haven't been able to get over it to this day, harrassing, flaming and insulting me here and everywhere else they could in the Descent community ever since. Some also simply were upset that I added stuff to D2X-XL they didn't like (mouselook in particular), and it didn't help that I made such stuff optional and server controlled.

It was kind of enlightening about the zeal they had developed in their crusade against me when I got insulted by people I had never met before right when I appeared on KALI to fix the bugs D2X-XL was reported to be having in KALI (IPX) games. Well, they finally got what they wanted.

I can do whatever I want, I will never satisfy these people. They are not looking for a way to get along, they are looking for a target.

I am talking about Ferno and MD-2389, but also about Krom and others. People that on some occasions have attacked me out of the blue w/o me having a clue why they did it. People who like to dish out but hate being dished out to.

It is sad that the this place is controlled by people with characters as lackluster as this; by people who are not representative for the Descent community, and who are not doing the Descent community a service, but only satisfying their egos, their lust for vengeance and destruction.

I had talked with Koolbear about this just a couple of weeks ago, telling him that I was about to go. I don't need this place. If at all it needs me. I have done something for the Descent community, not the other way round.

My upcoming single player mission will be the last big thing I have done for Descent. I have the text stating exactly this sitting on my HD for quite a while now.

So I am pretty much out of here. This may not be my last post, but it certainly is one of my last posts here.

To be honest: It isn't that important for me. I could not say I don't care at all, but I don't care all that much.

Bye bye

Diedel

No sir. It was you who attacked me. And it was unprovoked. Read this thread for reference:

I am not talking about that thread, and your not being able to accept an apology doesn't speak of a good character. I speak about things way in the past. You had jumped right on me then, and I had never even noticed your nickname before.

No, we are talking about that thread, and it is one of MANY examples of your conduct towards various people, not just me.

Regarding the past (as it is only convenient for you to reference the past so that you could gamble on people's bad memory) you were trouble from the beginning. I remember distinctly in debates in E&C where you would verbally attack people just because they had an opposing viewpoint. They never attacked you, or some of the times even referenced you. Yet when someone had a different line of thinking than yours, rather than rebut the argument, you attack the person. I can drum up MANY examples, but being the DBB that this is, the search feature is broken. However you are not worth the time or the effort.

This example and the many more examples in the past is indicative that you have very serious insecurities to the point that I honestly think that you are mental. I can only imagine what your real-life behavior is like.

Top Wop,

Don't make such claims if you cannot prove it.

i have been holding back for over a year, until very recently, when I finally had enough, because it never got acknowledged.

I have a habit of not attacking people personally for their opinions, not unless they attack me personally first. I remember one thread where I called someone \"dumb\" for his opinions, that's the only exception I can remember. I have apologized to that person via PM recently (better late than never). I haven't even received a reply.

Actually there were enough \"patriots\" who couldn't stand my posting even a single line of cricitism of the U.S., well founded or not, and I got flamed a lot by these people. I flamed back, and I got blamed for everything.

Anyway, as I said, I have completely refrained from doing such things for quite a long time, but you guys just couldn't stop it. Biased all over.

I think the real problem is that if I issue ome criticism there is more truth in it than most people here want to here. I hit where it hurts. Most people love to cover up everything and just proceed as if nothing had happened. I am just feeling too uncomfortable for that kind of attitude.

Well, I have enough of this now. It's so pointless. It's over, I have given up trying to please those that cannot be pleased by me here because they don't want to be, and it's such a good feeling. A feeling of great relief.

Well that being said, Diedel having his last words in every GDF thread, can we close up this forum.

I seem to have a better workout dodging your stupidity than attempting to grasp the weight of your intelligence.

I had to go searching for it about a month ago because I had forgotten all about the stuff in NHB since I hardly ever read that forum, and the same for E&C so I don't remember any of that either. :-/

Did I even reply to those threads?

Ya know, it really doesn't matter what I say to you anymore even if I did came up with example threads. You live in your own fantasy world. No matter how you try to excuse yourself, your true colors has shown, and now the whole community knows you. And from what ive heard who know you, this isn't your first time taking a dump on an internet community ether.

See you in the funny papers.

Krom: It goes back 1 - 2 years. He has since stopped posting there often a while ago.

Well, i think all of you need to calm down.

I mean, this is a community made to enjoy the game we love (i mean, Descent) not to make wars and divisions.

First of all, i'm no exactly pleased by the fact that Diedel leaves the forum, although i can say that i see all this 'bye bye' crap unnecesary. I mean, ceasing to be moderator doesn't mean that the community can't be enjoyed anyway (i say this to you Diedel 'cause i don't see why you need to leave, i like the community with you). I know, Diedel have enemies and many of them will be pleased by seeing him out of scene. But hey, there is no perfect community, there will be always enemies and friends, but all people here gives so much priotity to that fact, and the community is divided. I think that's bad.

I must admit, Diedel made some bad posting in this forum and is somewhat true that he's somekind of a troll and flamer and that he acts rude and ofensive (i don't know about the past problems in NHB, but anyway, i'm not even patriot of my own country, and BTW, i'm from Latin America :P ), but he's not the only one, i think also Ferno (with no ofense, i'm not against nobody) is somewhat of a flamer and troll sometimes, and i don't like his manners also. But we must learn to live with all our diferences and center the attention in the real theme of this forum: DESCENT gaming, and nothing more.

So, don't make this forum a disguiting place. If Diedel wants to leave, it's OK, i will keep tracking the progress of D2X-XL and reporting bugs anyway.

And Top Wop, you're right, i understand pretty well that you're mad against Diedel, but hey, let's admit, this problem is trivial, i mean, you're fighting for what? for a simple GAME. Not for food, health, a home or a thing that's really important for life. So all of you, please calm down and don't let the community fall just for some (maybe justified) personal differences.

I must admit this makes me sad :cry:

Well, i've nothing more to say.
Anyway, Bye and good luck Diedel :)

(And also good luck to all of you, the users of this community)
:wink:

Your comedic interludes will be sorely missed.

Also, in case anyone was wondering what this meant from the Feedback thread:
Diedel wrote:0-Checkor, Du beweist hier nur eins: Wie abgrundtief kümmerlich Dein Selbstwertgefühl ist, dass Du es brauchst, hier auf mich abzuwixen. Was für eine arme Wurst bist Du bloss, dass Du Dir immer wieder beweisen musst, dass für mich andere Regeln gelten dürfen als für andere?
"0-Checkor, you proves here only one: As abyss low your self value feeling is miserable the fact that you need it here on me abzuwixen. What for a poor sausage are you bare that you must prove yourself again and again that to me other rules may be considered than to others?"

Once again, Babelfish to the rescue.

Oh, also, while perusing your abortion of a website, dearest Diedel, I see you took some liberties with one of my levels. Perhaps you recall it; Tricord's Fusion Bunker.

Take it down, you thief.
