WILL EVERYBODY SHUT UP WITH YOUR STUPID LITTLE ARGUMENTS ABOUT PEOPLE DYING
AND THAT "WHY SHOULD WE BUILD A MEMORIAL FOR 7 PEOPLE" AND WARS AND STUFF.

WHY DO YOU ALL NEED TO ARGUE? WHAT IS IT... THE PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING/ABLE
TO PAY FOR CITS STILL ARE A LOAD OF ARGUING, IRRITATING MORONS?

Because they chose to argue.

I haven't seen any arguments about this subject at all in the wishlist newsgroup. I haven't looked lately at the other 6 newsgroups that you cross-posted to so I don't know how bad the problem is in any of them, but if the people you are addressing really are "a load of irritating morons" it's very doubtful that yelling at them will change that fact. If they're not, then you just yelled at a bunch of good people for nothing.

If anyone wants to reply specifically to me (about my reply) I'll find your reply if you post it to wishlist but otherwise please post any further replies to this thread to General or Community for followup depending on which one you think is your reply is better suited for.

Just so you know John, it's generally not a good idea to cross post unless you are very sure that what you are posting really needs to be in all of the groups you are cross-posting to and really should have most of the replies to it go to all of the same newsgroups. One of the reasons it's not a good idea is that if any of the moderators of any of the groups it's cross-posted to decides it's inapropraite for that particular group, it will get deleted from all of them.

Note to the moderators... I won't miss this reply if you decide to zap it. Have a nice day.

There are lots of people "not arguing" in many places. By the way, I'm not arguing with you about it... just stating a fact that is in conflict with your statement. I didn't make the fact true... it already was. :)

wow, I have to say it, that was one of the most "entertaining" posts I've
read in a long time. Especially since not one of us feels good about what
happened to Columbia, we are all on the same side, don't worry :P also, this
has absoultely nothing to do with bots, sdk, wishlist, or worldbuilders... I
could see maybe community and general discussion, but not the others :P

*thanks ENZO that john isn't a beta tester*

I posted this because I didn;t realise that the newsgroups were designed for
fighting and arguing.

I thought they might be to discuss aw and maybe help people with questions
and queries. And I also thought it was a place to post information and not
somewhere where every bit of information posted is contradicted or put down.

The newsgroups aren't "for fighting" but unfortunately there are some people who use them as if that was their sole intended purpose. What you need to realize is that we have very few such people here, and those are the people least likely to be chased off by a post typed in all caps calling people names and telling everybody to shut up.

Also, you cross posted that message to places where the fighting wasn't even happening. I don't know about the other newsgroups, because I haven't had time for them lately (and the more fighting goes on in them the less time good people will make for them) but I know there was no fighting going on in the wishlist newsgroup.

Now, if you're going to cross-post to this thread at all anymore, "PLEASE" state which newsgroup you will be looking for replies in, so that people can eliminate the rest of the newsgroups when replying to you. I'll be in Wishlist if you want to reply to me.

For one....you aren't the entire CY committee....secondly....I meant the
situation would have eventually arose. We now have ratings on the worlds
list thank god for that matter...heh ;)

Okay. Not a problem.... and I agree it is something that needed to be addressed. As a matter of fact, it was already planned for AW 3.5, which is why AW 3.4 hasn't been released yet. We're now beta testing what "would have been" AW 3.4 as AW 3.4 so in the long run it simply means all the fighting accomplished nothing except to waste a lot of people's time and cause the people waiting for a release upgrade to Active Worlds to have to wait much longer.

Sorry if I seemed to have taken that personally. I mainly wanted to point out that the way it was worded could easily be taken as an accusation against vaguely identified people... which was exactly how that whole mess got going in the first place. Gotta word stuff like that carefully. :)

If I were talking about you....I would have said "Technozeus". Usually when
I'm talking about committees....I won't address any names, because it starts
fights....

Well, although I'm not the "whole" exec team I still got a lot of personal attacks durring that little war that went on, from people who didn't even know me at all and from people who thought they knew me well and couldn't understand why I would have done the things it sounded like I was being accused of.

I'm sure you can understand that with this in mind I'm not about to let a statement that makes it "sound like" something was done wrong by the committee that I happen to be a member of just pass by without asking for clarification.

Nothing against you, or against anyone, of course.
