that is a pretty distinct difference. because the way i see it, its not my responsibility to raise someone elses kids. you want that responsibility, have at it.
you and i have always gotten along, lets not taint it with petty insults.
as for the wassabi incident, you were not there, the parent was a regular and after i held up a ball of wassabi he laughed hard... as i whispered " i gotcha" because it was a running joke between the bar and the customer that there was wassabi in the green tea ice cream. so since you and others not involved might not see all of the social dynamics going on, you can base your judgements on my perspective, one side of the story....so to act like you know the truth is fool hardy at best friend.
as for my verbal rants, i am fine with how i portay my feelings, there is no sugar coating on it, its just the knobby club of truth.... i know sometimes its hard to deal with when it gets ugly. that is just how i talk. if ya cant deal with it dont talk to me....because i use the same language in person and on the forums. any one who knows me, know this.
sorry your not as active as you would like to be, but since you are not, you have no idea the current state of things and how they have degraded. so really if you were around a lil more maybe you would see it how it really is and have a different opinion.
as for the current issue, you cannot deny anything of what i have said thus far, and why is that, because it is all based of personal expereince both as a player and a admin. i have not see this community elevate its sportsmanship or honor in the past 4 years.
players like realtree kid are still allowed to play as long as they pay the entry fee. i have seen this hacking kid at no less then three of riddicks games , even after he was busted for hacking at SEVERAL events. this isnt a one time offender, but a habbitual offender. guess what, he is still in the community.
this community has not enforced on BAN or blacklist for safety violations or unsportsmanlike conduct.
at more and more games i am seeing real steel at games....really have we gotten soo loose on our rules that CCW carriers can just break one of the cardnial rules of airsoft... real steel and airsoft dont mix.
so when i say that this community is on a down turn, and had gotten so loose that no one enforces any of the the statutes and most fundimental rules....then my rants look like small potatoes compared to bullshit like that.
so who is policeing up this community and making it right?
the site owner? nope
the promoters? nope
the players? nope
who is left.
uncle sam. regulations and restrictions....because you couldnt tighten up the ship.
so you can point the fingers at the troll KA-BAR all you want....but the 800 lbs. gorilla in the room is still hiding in the shadows waiting to rip your hobby to shreds.
dont blame me for it. i am just rubbing your nose in it.
