Re: Are there patches coming... Thread
I'm terribly sorry about posting this thread and it is most likely considered to be off topic. However The way tha the thread was ended/closed in such an abrubt manner regarding the post which smeep2k4 made in this thread. (Are Patches Coming out.... ) In particular, I'm disturbed by the responses jeex (No offense once again), has made in regards to smeep2k4's post.
From my understanding as well as a few others (I won't name them, I don't want to bring in any other people), the post (smeep2k4 post ) does not in any way seem to suggest any action of illegal activies, as well as being a liar. I'm referring to jeex's 2 posts in the same thread (Post 7 Post 12 ). In these jeex is directly accusing smeep2k4 about being a liar or thief. The statement in question seems to be "Some of us are just tired of loading games at 1x.", which according to jeex implies that smeep2k4 is a thief and/or liar. The thread was then closed by jeex with a comment insinuating that smeep2k4 is a thief, as well as a liar.
The comment itself just seems to state that some people would rather not load games at 1x (Normal loading), while others don't really mind loading at 1x. I can't seem to understand how this statement would be "check & mate" (See post 12) in concluding that smeep2kr4 does not have the game and is a liar as well, when there are a few people defending the statement above. Especially when "that projects to us that he is...."(Post 12) is stated. How does this project to "us" when a few who have replied to the thread defended the statement? I'm curious.
I'm not going to lie and be hypocritical by saying that I don't d/l games, and pirating games is bad, etc. However I will say that I do purchase a good number of games (Games which I personally enjoy), while d/l the occasional games every so often. That doesn't mean that I don't buy games.
Now I'm sure people are reading this (If they even bother to do so) and are thinking why should I (importttuner) care what is being said, since it has nothing to do with me. They're probably right, I have no business in the matter. However the argument in the thread was just irritaing me and kept bothering me. This thread may be off topic (I'm most certain of it), however since this is a forum, and I feel that opinions should be shared.
On another note as to why I created this thread, it has to do with the fact that the person who is accusing another of being a liar and/or thief is a moderator. If the person accusing the another were a normal user, then I most likely would have shrugged it off/laugh/agree or disagree/etc. But since a moderator is involved, I feel a sense of concern regarding the situation. Aren't moderators supposed to be as unbias as possible (I know that this is just an idealistic thought, but at least close to being unbias/not prejudice).
I may be out of line in posting this. This thread will most likely be closed. I'm might possibly be banned (Perhaps). I may have offended some. I may have started a flame war (I do not intend on doing so and I hope this thread will not lead to such an incident). I am not defending piracy, nor condone such actions (Once again, I do not want to be hypocritical). I am just concerned about the comments made in the thread by a moderator.
I'm terribly sorry for creating such a post, and hope that I don't do this again (Pain to type really...). I'm just expressing my opinion and felt that I needed to say something (Not to be self righteous or anything, but I kept thinking about the thread and how it was ended). I'm not accusing anyone of anything (Eh maybe jeex in a more or less indirect way I suppose. Still love ya jeex. You've been a help to all!). I'm not putting blame on the moderators or accusing them of anything (Heh, Personally I wish I was a moderator). I hope this does not offend anyone.
Edit: Perhaps I should have put this in the general discussion. However people who have read the original thread might not go into the general discussion forum.
