Vyrin the First
Yes cats can be real jerks!
But there is a point where most of us want to leave our high school days behind and move onto better things. It's just that some among us don't seem to be able to do so!
Jerks won't always be saved by the bell!
Take the case of TJ Norton, who left eAustralia and has a government position now in the eUS. He felt no shame in taking a single statement I made in this article as an insult when I merely stated the fact of what he said.
His completely disproportionate comments on the article are thus:
Alright Vyrin you've had the chance to be important and worthwhile now you're going to get what you deserve.
It was a good show you little prick. You understand what I'm getting at? No one hurt, disembowelled, stabbed or hung anyone from a Cyprus tree. So like what the fuck is your problem? eQT is not a Government program and we're free to do whatever we want. The world is bigger than one country and the same boring as batshit problem 10 pricks a week write about in the eAus press.
Get over yourself, do your job that you've been lazy at and is represented as such in this article by a giant ball of fluff and I say the following with the utmost respect -
Lay off our program, quit your veiled threats against it and get off me. Step again and your name will make headlines just for being a little shit.
Oh yeah as for our show needing 'traction'? Err we have over 1,500 views per cast how's your little 15 likes and 32 little subscribers going?
Sit down noob.
BTW - I reserve the right to smack down any noob who is a government failure and can't help to bring my name up. I did nothing to this kid and since he's been here it's like a sand fly buzzing around being a pest. If he wants to make this a thing he can stand up and come at me instead of hiding behind his government mask.
Then he took it even farther in this little exchange in the feeds:
I know such attention is a backhanded compliment. Yet it is quite strange that one statement about what TJ said, and no criticism, can launch him into a diatribe disconnected from reality.
And it does raise important questions.
There is a point where behavior and comments cross a line. People like Icetek and his new doppleganger TJ show that there is probably something that needs to be done to raise the level of civility in the discussions. People can have fun and differences or opinion, but it should not get to insanity and threats.
There have been varied attempts, ban from forum, shame (like infin is doing), etc.
Is this just a case where you just have to put up with jerks? I can certainly do that. Although TJ's comments are disturbing, I feel more worried for him than I do for me.
Or should there be more done? CAN there be more done?
