Just Sayin'

Day 1,603, 13:35 by Kara Beth


This last apology by Gnilraps is the second time, that I know of, when he has felt a need to publicly apologize. The first time was to me. I still remain convinced his apologies are a tactic to appease when he realizes he went too far. The problem is that his attempt to describe his motives is illogical. I base this on the fact that I know he is not as stupid as he purports to be in his feeble explanations of why an apology is needed. He knows full well what he is doing and the potential consequences, good or bad, that are possible. He may not be that stupid, but he is a bad liar.

Let's take the following quote from Gnilraps and examine the contradiction and double speak:
"I did not think my plan through carefully enough to even ASK myself if it followed the rules. (Truthfully, I knew that external advertising was illegal in this game, so I broke that rule knowingly. The rule about trading assets which is illegal in the other game, however, I was unaware of)." I'll just let that sink in for you and it should explain itself. Read that quote again, this time with a little skepticism, and it will open your eyes to what Gnilraps is truly all about.

Don't get me wrong. I know exactly why his apology will always be accepted by the masses. He has accomplished a lot in this game and made many friends and allies. I am sure he has helped out people too. Still, there are those of us who have been burned by him and we know the truth.

"Fortunately, David Wilson of the AMP reported that article and it got taken down right away by Admin. If he had not done so, I would have likely gotten myself into a situation where I would have been banned in BOTH games."

The above quote is, once again, from Gnilraps. Let's just take one comment to the article that quote came from and see the mentality of one of his supporters, shall we? Let's hear from John Killah:
"I voted for the sincerity of the apology! Gotta give the man props for unstanding he did wrong and admitting to it without provocation!"

"Without provocation"? Did you just the read the same article I did, John Killah? Let me explain this to you and all the other drones. When David Wilson reported that article, which Gnilraps suddenly feels a need to apologize for, THAT WAS THE PROVOCATION!

I believe I made my point. Just sayin'.

You see, you failed to see what I meant xD - He wasn't PRODDED or TOLD to apologise,he did it of his own accord.

Oh, protip - Not a supporter as such, I disagree with what he next guy. Only difference is, i'm not gonna troll over something silly like this, like you are now.

Go cry elsewhere and stop dragging people into your mudslinging for innocent comments -_-

I agreed with John, because Gnilraps did apologize and it didn't take citizens ragging on him to get him to do it...as for it's sincerity only Gnilraps knows that...
