I'm done here at GF or FF or whatever it is called. El Paolo is one of the kindest, most intelligent souls I know. The guy speaks numerous languages, picked up RTCW mapping nearly over night, and I'm sure he has a far more productive, meaningful life than any admin here. Accusing him of looking at kiddie porn or whathaveyou, is beyond comprehension. For those looking for me, I'll be at the Tramdesign forums.
Bye Starr. :madman:
Since the thread I originally posted this in was deleted I'll just post it again here since it seems appropriate here as well:
I don't understand why the admins/mods have to act as badly or worse than the members do. Instead of jumping on Paolo's back over his complaints, why not just ignore him or respond with something that resembles grace? Far too often the reaction by the staff here is worse than the initial actions by the member that ticked off the staff. Why always drop to their level or ,as you guys seem to do time and time again, try to one up their childish nature with something even more idiotic. I think the way the staff responds much of the time just makes the argument all that much worse.
The issue with Paolo was avoidable and ugly and i take full responsibilty and offer a full apology. It was unfair to say what was said and if i could turn back time i would have prevented it.
Unfortunately, that is not possible so i will say right now on behalf of Trillian and myself that we are sorry for any offence caused. Truly sorry.
Paolo asked for his account to be removed and I was prehaps too quick to oblige him. That cannot be undone, and the comments cannot be undone, so I will simply apologise for them and leave it at that. What more can one do?
I've done what damage control I can here on the forums. Those that missed it don't really need to know more than what was stated above. I also ask that folks please use their brains not only emotions when posting to something. As a hint if ya see something that gets under your collar please take a while to cool off before responding to it. that will
- Make you look more inteligent
- Make you not regret what you have done.
and what about the other thing with skins ,,,,was there any justifaction in the way he was abused or isnt this open to discussion?
im calm im not angry i feel karma , just wondering what happened as to punishment to all parties?
he said some things in private he should not have said.
ok ,, but was the response justified inpublic do you think it was done the right way ... im just curious with this being the face of file front and so on
suffice it to say that the entire situation got out of hand and all parties share the responsibility for that.
