My turn!


Supernanny sucks. Why?

He makes no sense at all when conversing with him.
He never helps where he should be able to help when you have a problem.
I honestly hate his guts.
He should go dig a hole, jump in, and rot there forever.
If you hire him I will find where you live and take the liberty of beating the living poop out of your asparagus brain.

Note to reader: All of the above reason are in the opposite superlative.

So, which would you pick: CNN, or FOX?

Christ, guys, it's really not that hard. Are you going to sit and listen to a crazed hobo give you the news?

Basically just a reiteration of what I said before, and twisted around a bit. Personally I think you're insane for making rules against acronyms. They're a common part of the English language. Hell, I used a couple in this post! Just because you don't know what one is or might be frightened of it doesn't mean you should make a rule against it. I certainly won't expect any in your news!

But you just said that you alter your personality depending on the person. That is not being honest.

You choose to focus on the problems in everything created instead of providing any positive interest in such a topic.

How is this relevant at all to this discussion? Either way I'm not too realistic, I'm just honest with the opinions I express. I don't need to sugar coat things that I say so I can get things my way, I don't alter my personality to get on the other person's better side, and I don't suck up. But as I said, this is irrelevant to your News Admin position.

You always sucked up and you're two faced. I can easily pull proof as my Graal folders date back to 2004 so don't tempt me. I still have my PM's and my MSN (Rufus, Dan) is always logged.

Hah, and yet you never once confronted me about anything negative. Instead you constantly tried to suck up to me, showering me with compliments and always trying to tell me your latest gossip. Way to prove my point champ.

You took my post too literally and skipped my point on purpose. I never openly disliked you until last year. Ever year before we did indeed "get along".

You can't prove Rufus and I draw "far off conclusions for just about everything" because you were wrong. In the end this also irrelevant to this discussion.

This writer sees that there seems to be a significant number of people who disagree with you becomming News Admin, this writer rests his case.

I haven't really seen much of that from SN, except for the sucking up part. He does that quite well.

Actually, I was listening to the radio today with my dad (didn't realize my iPod was off until I remembered, "I don't have weird guys talking on my iPod!") and there was a guy delivering the news very strangely.
There's proof it's not all the same.
And also, not all news crew give their news the same, albeit similar.

This is why I said news articles, not radio shows or TV commentaries. More than one person works for Associated Press, but you'd never know if they didn't write their names on the articles!

The whole point is that if you're looking for somebody to write news, then hire anybody with good grammar and people skills. If you're looking for somebody to advertise for you, then hire the guy that makes you laugh.

It's not a hard decision, and it's certainly not as important as a lot of you people are making it out to be. If you're investing all your hopes for a better Graal in the news that you only see once you've already bought a subscription, then man, you need rethink your investment strategy.

I think it would be good to focus on mainly the news but to spend time on the others as well. The news can really encompass quite a bit.

Well lots of people would say I'm a bit crazy :p You may think I'm insane, but it was understandable at the time. The problem wasn't that I didn't know acronyms, it was that forum users also didn't and took some things as harassment.

I have much better things to do with my time. I just like to know what is going on, and my interest in what is going on goes no farther than what it is, interest. I don't gossip.

I don't know why you would do create logs, I just know you are capable of creating chat logs. Anyone can get level 4 RC on multiple servers. If you call it trust, than obviously I must have some degree of trust as I've gotten a level 4 RC on two servers after logging online.

For someone who builds their responses around trust, you sure don't seem to know me well enough to know that I am trusted as well.

I said I am personal. Being personal is being honest. As I've said before, if one person doesn't like to talk about cheese but instead likes to talk about tomatoes, I then talk about tomatoes. That is being honest. It is respecting other's beliefs. If you want to call it something else and spin a name off on it as you just did, fine.

I choose to focus on more positive aspects in people than to bring out tiny details that only a few seem to see while many do not. I apologize for being an optimist!

This is entirely relevant to the discussion because you are negative and your negative outlook could lead to your posts in this thread. Because your negative outlook clouds your judgment I would take it to mean you can not be taken seriously upon any of your comments made within this thread.

I guess I am a snitch. Guilty as charged. I've betrayed others. If they don't do their job and abuse their rights; I tell an administrator. I guess if you do what is right that means you are a snitch.

I don't know what you mean by suck up. If you mean to respect my superior's opinions, the answer is whole heartedly yes. I respect my superiors and everyone else's opinions.

Yes, I did confront you. I told you I had a problem with what you were doing, but apparently you did not listen or were AFK all 3 times even though you said you were there.

I didn't try to suck up to you, and I praised you for things I thought you did well. I asked you for your opinions on events happening within Graal, but I did not gossip. I didn't go find every person and their mother to tell them what you said. I told no one what I said to you, and I told no one what you said to me.

So who is the fake here? The one who admits there was a problem from the beginning, me? Or the one who wouldn't admit it until last year, you? Perhaps you are the one who is fake. You seemed to openly dislike me far sooner than just last year. We didn't get along. Your past history with me has little to do with this thread.

Yes, you and Rufus drawing far off conclusions for everything is relevant to the discussion. Your far off conclusions are also drawn in this thread.

So by rest your case do you mean you will stop responding to this thread? Or do you just mean that you rest your case with that post?

There isn't any need to. The reasons have already been elaborated on to hell and back but you keep regurgitating the same bull**** over and over to convince everyone that no, you're really just a swell guy.

Yes, I did go through a phase two years ago. I like to have fun just as much as anyone else, and I found entertainment in joking about that. We all make mistakes.

I'm not repeating bull. I'm repeating how I feel and I am consistent in how I feel. Swell is an interesting choice of words, but I'm just trying to convince everyone that I'm capable of handling the position, as that has been disputed within this thread.
