Cpt Bacon was a bit quick to dismiss people's arguments from one topic I kind of remember, and kinda has an "I am right and you are wrong!" attitude on occasion. On the other hand he does very often show some very convincing and well backed arguments himself, so yeah...
What bothers me most about Tae is one specific hypocrisy. She's completely self conscious about her art and has admitted to self esteem issues, but very often takes a stance of "if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen!"
I think this might be a bit of influence from Suit who almost always has this attitude anyway, but at least he's less contradicting about it.
Then of course there's the fact that Tae apparently dislikes me for some reason I still don't quite know of (I have some theories, but I don't want to write a huge wall of text). While in many cases I wouldn't mind someone randomly disliking me, I do feel like Taeshi and some other people in here are interesting and worth trying to be friends with. Her position of influence in the community does mean I've gotten a few nasty remarks from people who feel they have to do everything just like tae does, though. On top of that, asking to keep me out of the Skype chat was just plain rude of you, Tae, especially considering I say very little when in there anyway.

But at the end of the day, if I react, I know it's my own stupid fault and rather than go "you guys are meaaaann" I'm like "no I'm gonna try and work through this and maybe whinge to Souppy," nobody has to hold back anything. So I'm totally willingly putting my hands in the fire.
I dislike you because you're an idiot. Like I feel really confident in saying that, I know I've been called out for casually referring to people as idiots and a lot of the time I tend to exaggerate and even joke with the word, but I really do believe you are an idiot. You have really bigoted, moronic, ignorant opinions about practically everything, and everything that comes out of your mouth you say as if it's factual and scientific, when it's absolutely wrong and shows signs of a person that just has not done the research. You're obnoxious, try to act smart when saying the dumbest nonsense, you're conceited, and you try to push stuff that people find really annoying into their face, one minor point being your stupid PauloxSue fetish. There's been so many times we've argued and I've said your opinions are just terrible, and it seems you always tend to have them, so in turn I find you ignorant and irritating and I can't stand you. I don't see how it's random at all, and it's not even a case of disagreeing with someone, it's a case of your opinions just being absolutely toxic to me.
Also when did I say to keep you out of skype? Now you're just making shit up, I have never said such a thing. I only really said that once and that was with Grass and not you, because he wouldn't shut up about Rye and I didn't wanna deal with Grass masturbating over Rye on voicechat as well as IRC. And maybe Little Shota a few times but Ryuk hated him enough to keep him out without my discretion, but I am the type to just tolerate people that I find irritating, if I did not, wouldn't you have been banned ages ago?
You assume all this random shit and make up all these backhanded statements as if the people in the community are sheep and could NEVER hate someone like YOU, it just HAS to be my influence! You say this shit so much, and then you turn around and wonder why I don't like you! I know times on IRC when people are rambling about fancharacters for example, with obvious sympathisers like Mousey and Gnukko and Radial, and you still have the gall to go "hurpadurp tae sure does have her army of haters at her disposal", and laugh it on like you're some kind of lighthearted comedian when it's really just bitter whiny backhanded shit. You could say "Oh durpadurp I was just joking!" but saying that people have been jerks to you because of my influence proves you're not just horsing around and actually believe this crap.

17 hours isn't a long time though.
Feel free to delete my posts, I don't mind. It's not like I'm going to contend you over such a small thing

I guess I just expected you to be able to understand people's position in these situations and have a little more compassion is all. I think it was Roger Daltrey who said that a beginning artist is like a delicate flower. Not everyone started their art when they were 5 years old and have already grown past the defensive stage.
You say we've argued so many times (a handful or so at most, by my count) and that my opinions are terrible. I don't understand quite what you mean by that, though. Most of the time our opinions weren't even diverging and we discussed over some minor details.
The Skype thing must have been a misunderstanding. I was kept out of Skype once for whatever mysterious reason and I just assumed it was you because you had done it to grass a few days before. My bad.
I think you fail to realise your position in this community sometimes tae. You are not just one more of the bro's that hang out here. You created this place, you keep it running, you automatically start with the respect of everyone who enters here. Let nobody say it is undeserved, but it does mean that anything and everything you do, people will take more seriously and consider more than anything anyone else does here. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry said "You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed." and there is some truth to that.
Fancharacters had been around here ever since I first saw BCB and your hatred for them used to be nothing more then a running joke until the "phancharacter menace" thread, and then suddenly three quarters of the community hates fancharacters. People over-reacted to that so badly that they shunned away some (young!) readers who were getting brave in the booru. You can't deny the influence you have here. I'm sure you never intended for people to rage about it as they did, but because of your position here, because people admire you, many of our opinions will be shaped by yours.
This is just one (rather extreme) example. My comment about people being nasty because of your influence is a much softer one. Almost everyone here is really friendly and has been very friendly every since I've been here. I have made some good friends in the IRC and gotten more involved with people than I had thought possible over the Internet. With other people I interacted less but always had a feeling of friendliness around anyhow. Ever since you openly stated your dislike for me a few people changed their shift, though, and avoided me or were curt and blunt when talking to me on the IRC. Unlike the fancharacter example, where it was newbies who were most influenced (most newbies don't even know / care who I am), in this case a few of the IRC regulars were affected and I felt kinda sad about it. (Not in a condescending way, in before someone accuses me. Sad because I thought these were people I could be friends with.)
Please note I'm not accusing you to have a flawed personality, Taeshi. I'm just responding to your post. It's not even necessarily a flaw in other person's personality. It's natural to be influenced by people who you respect or admire. Though it's good to hope that people will try and think more about their choices sometimes.
To be honest I don't think we've touched the root of the problem here, though. I think at some point you had a bad impression of me and after that just interpreted anything I said negatively. Things just escalated from there. It might be because of Paulo x Sue, I'm sorry if that offends you somehow and I can drop it if you feel strongly about it. It might have been when I admitted to being uncomfortable around gay men. It might have been at some other point I don't remember. As I said before, you're a smart interesting person who I respect very much. I would prefer not to be hated or disliked or shunned by you, and I'm willing to take steps for it. If you're willing to talk things out, feel free to call me up on it in the IRC.

To lighten up a suddenly very wordy thread, my only real problems with Migrant is his tone. He sounds very...I can't think of a word. I just get this feeling that he writes and proofreads and edits the crap out of what he wants to say, to the point where it sounds less like a person and more like a college essay. I don't get a lot of emotion or idiosyncrasies from him at all, it's sorta robotic almost.
Also, my first impression of him was in the IRC, where he gave me a super low score on some BCB quiz because I thought McCainxSue was an okay pairing, and apparently he doesn't agree. I got a very opinionated vibe off of that, as silly as the subject was.

Bourbon seems a bit dodgy to me. He generates a lot of arguments, including his first post on the forum, normally due to annoying misunderstandings or just his general attitude. I still don't know exactly why he was banned from ratemydrawings.com but on his photobucket account he had a lot of "haters gonna hate" gifs, it sort of cast a shadow on his character, maybe you could clear this up?
Also, a cop out answer? Migrant's post seemed pretty good to me.

My 'Haters gonna hate' gifs weren't really for RMD anyway, but I can see how that'd give me a troll vibe. Really, I was banned because the site's direction changed. I had this small group of friends that ended up being called 'the Gang' and it was good for a while, but the newbies thought we were like some real official group and would ask to join us and clog our conversations up like woah, and the admin felt we had a 'responsibility to the site' to be role models. When he felt we weren't a good enough influence, he deleted all out threads claiming they drew too much attention, and the site now caters to 12 year old little otaku fucks. My ban was asked for, I couldn't stand the new whitewashed way things were run to the point where 'jerk' and 'stupid' were blocked words. I'm running off a tangent here, but yeah, it's not like I'm one to troll, I just argue a lot.

I don't have a lot to say about Bourbon but I find him irrationally stubborn -- he seems to drag things out in arguments.

I think this has more to do with our perceptions of others than the those we are perceiving.
Anyways, I guess I could say that I feel like I've seen you take some things a little too seriously sometimes. But so have a lot of people here. Probably me to.

A prime example would be last week, where I came to you looking to vent after finding out a very close friend of mine is terminaly ill. I Believe the conversation went like this.
<Chrispy> Hey man can we talk?
<SmashGenisis> sure man, what's up?
<Chrispy> I kinda need to talk to someone.
<SmashGenisis> Ok, what's wrong
<Chrispy> well right now, I'm drinking because I found out one of my friends is going to die, and I can't do anything about it.
<SmashGenisis> Is the booze good?
<Chrispy> Excuse me?
<SmashGenisis> Is the booze good?
<SmashGenisis> like, do you have any of the good stuff?
<Chrispy> That's really not the issue right now
<SmashGenisis> But is it good?
Like this is not the only time this has happened
you have missed the point of these things a few times. It feels like a weak criticism, but It's really All I have for you, and that's been bugging me for a while. although I will give you this, you did eventually in that example, realize your mistake and say sorry.

Also, you're really cool and everyone admires you, but you're really just a troll. A witty one at that, but a troll nonetheless.

nah, you're right about seppucrow, he pulls that shit sometimes.
- 31 March 2012 - 08:53 PM
Also, I don't like your lack of punctuation and shit, but that's a stupid fucking thing to consciously not like about someone.
- 31 March 2012 - 09:28 PM
i like you. from the times i've interacted with you, you seem like a friendly, reasonably funny and all around good user.
your username is kinda lame though, i associate it with invader zim wacky-dacky type humor but i guess it's not really that kind of thing and it's not that bad anyway.
please ignore me when doing the next post and do CBM because i don't have much to hate him for, i just wanted to respond (i'm probably easier to do in these kinds of things though so idk)

"You share a name with this person who sucks and therefore you suck!"
Not to mention I recall you getting whipped up about the fact that someone spelled your name "mace" instead of "mAce." I can't tell if you were kidding, but from the content of your posts, I'm guessing you weren't.
