Try to follow along here, because this gets a little tricky. Tobold says he does not read my blog anymore, yet in that same paragraph he says:
“So every time I make some blog post about some PvP game, like “I don’t like legal RMT in EVE”, syncaine goes and makes a blog post with my name in the title, full of personal attacks and lies about me and my blog”.
I find that funny, not only because I just don’t see that with my last post, but also because it would be real damn hard to know a post is full of personal attacks and lies if you did not actually read it. (I was not aware you could EG blog posts, but there you go!) And as I’ve tried to explain to Tobold a few times now, when you constantly delete my comments (even though they follow your ridiculous ‘blog rules for commenting’) on your blog, and I want to respond to something you write, I’m left with no choice but to make a post about it here, and I don’t have to follow your blog rules on my own blog. Now I could be cute and leave the link off my post to your blog, but I’ll help feed your ego and give you some traffic while at the same time not insulting my ever-growing legion of readers. That I have a writing style you seem particularly sensitive to is, well, not really MY issue now is it?
Now for the record I did call Tobold an asshole at one point, although without actually using his name, when he called out a small company for donating money to charity. The original post has since been edited by Tobold, but follow the comments (at least the ones on my site, since he also filtered the ones on his) and you get the idea if you don’t remember the actual event. The first comment in that post on my site is rather fitting though, haha. But yea, I still stand behind that post, and I still consider it an asshole move to take a shot at a company trying to do some good (especially given the fact that they are struggling for money now, unlike another company who kept half the profits on their charity-driven promotion).
And while I did try to bury the hatchet with Tobold before (guess he also did not read that post, not enough “slander” in it perhaps?), I’m over that now thanks to his recent actions (I’d love to post the email he sent me, but that would be going over the top). Like I told him directly, either make your blog private so I can’t read it, or come to terms with the fact that when you make a post I disagree with, and I feel like it, I’m going to make a response post here. Whether or not I call you an asshole while refuting your points or ‘facts’ is likely going to come down to phases of the moon, the color of my shirt, and whether or not I need the traffic to buy another Ferrari, since you know, I’m now ‘financing’ myself off this blog.
