I'll acknowledge this once publicly, and that's it. When I wrote you personally (refraining from making a spectacle, mind you) to say this:
"That is one of the most blatantly stupid pieces of jack-ass shit I've come across in a while. Thanks for making me think even more that every formerly-admired guy on this site is a shit-sucking twat. I'm about done with all this"
it was indeed a moment I should have stepped away from the computer, probably. Why did I not?
Well, for a few reasons. Primarily, though, was because I was fucking pissed at the cheap, low potshots being taken toward particular individuals.
And why did I keep it to email? Simply put, there's enough silly/stupid drama in the forums anyway, and because it was a rant that was written very much in the moment...and don't we see enough of that? Guess I kinda figured you were intelligent enough to take it as such and brush it off -- just as, had positions been reversed, I would have. That's also why I didn't bother responding to your return email -- why bother escalating something as silly as a throwaway emotional outburst?
Having said that, I'm done. If you have further words for me, take it back to email, where I'll be more than happy to trade inane insults with you should there be another particularly obnoxious lull in my workday.
