    Do you honestly think Ev or Tommy are pulling the strings on something like this? They know the community and how it rolls, for better or for worse.

    I'm calling that a misreading. Ev and Tommy are excellent and passionate folk, and while I do agree Marv sometimes shows signs of latter-era CS spirit when dealing with dumbness, I didn't read it as being mean against anyone other than 64.

    For the record I was gonna try and mediate things immediately after but then 64 crossed a line and I'm still genuinely pissed off. They need introspection.

    I can see how the term sockpuppet could invite ambiguity but I thought the whole misunderstanding about having some fixated vendetta against ETA was already sorted. Hell if I know, communication via text is hard.


    Edit: can we please get the noise out of this thread.

    Sock puppet is a very specific term.

    This thread is full of crap. Considering the lack of conducive discussion, I am locking this thread and moving it.

    I don't know. As I'd said many times, would like to see ETA succeed. Because I received many PMs of concern, I gave 646 an opportunity to own it, but instead he doubled down and insisted upon me to improve the SBAF ticketing system. What other person has doubled down on stupidity only to make the optics worse? All that's needed is was a "yeah, my bad". That statement in itself would have alleviated the concerns of many people.

    I don't f'ing have time for long winded explanations, doubling down on bullshit, asking me to DM or contact via Discord, or improving the SBAF helpdesk ticketing system.

    As for "stupidity at best and sockpuppetry at worst" - it's probably somewhere in between, along the lines of rabid fan boy. I know others who think 646 really was put up to it.

    If I were Ev or Tommy, I'd pull the crazies on their Discord aside and just tell them of keep out of it. I'd be pissed at the prior thread and this one. This is two threads trainwrecked now. As you said they know how SBAF rolls.

    It's called no time for bullshit. I have a stack of stuff that needs review. RL responsibilities plus I had just gotten back from the UK (delayed flight which made us miss a connection - 22 hour trip) which was supposed to be vacation but ended up as a work-cation.
