From: Los Angeles, CA
Been waiting all day to respond to this.. wasn't going to use my phone to type a message, since I'm going to get a couple of things off my chest.
Todd, this is 99% to you. After this, I consider my piece said; you're welcome to respond and have the last word, but I'm done with it.
I read both of your posts and honestly, I just don't get you. Maybe its becuz I'm just a guy from the inner city, ghetto really, and I don't make time for men that act like you. Maybe its just becuz I don't understand how someone can make such a big deal out of what happens on a chat board. Maybe, its just becuz in the grand scheme, I don't worry about shit that doesn't affect how I live, eat or pay my bills. Whatever the case may be, I just don't get you.
To me, as in my opinion, you are the eternal victim. Everything happens to you and nothing is your fault. I have no idea why you toss around terms and phrases like I'm a "conquering hero," while you're a schleb. I've lost count of how many pity parties you've thrown in your posts about how no one listens to you or cares about how you feel. And it makes no sense to me, especially on a damn chat board.
And then you want to put all this extra on it, about how becuz I cleaned up a thread, I'm looking to be celebrated or exhalted? Really?!? Who gives a shit?!!? Truthfully, there is NOTHING happening on here that is THAT serious.
Threads get moderated, some more than others. And Mods do what they can when they can. Sometimes its quick, sometimes it aint. And honestly, we don't really care about most of the criticisms, especially when theyre not warranted. I know I don't give a shit.
As far as the "you're welcome" comment, it was on purpose due to what I considered to be your incessant ranting and crying about cleaning up this thread, even after Lynn told you in her own way to not worry about it. I knew I was doing YOU a favor. And in True Mallett fashion, as soon as it wasn't done to your personal liking, it was a problem, as if someone had wronged you.
You could have always have policed the thread yourself. Except YOU are the guy that gave up being a moderator becuz you couldn't handle the responsibility of censoring people and/or telling them what they could or couldn't say. I'm only a moderator becuz you gave it up. They didn't initially ask me; they asked YOU.
Truthfully, none of that even matters. I just want you to come at me on this site like one grown ass man talking to another. Not high school buddies, not co-workers having a beer, just a grown ass man talking to another. That's it. All that other shit is extra and unnecessary.
Like I said before, I do what I do here becuz I want to; not out of obligation or for attention, notoriety, or payment. And as such, absent doing something downright despicable, I don't have the desire nor need to answer to you or anybody else on this site. Like you, I'll say what I want to say and deal with who agrees and who doesnt accordingly. But, the more you approach me on this site like you've lost your damn mind or unlike an adult, I'll treat you just like that.
Hope you understand where I'm coming from. I'm done.
Hate the message, not the messenger.
Enjoy the process; crave the goal.
