And in fact, people that share the same religious beliefs as yours also share my opinion: http://rebooters.net/
By email you've commented the progress in your PhD and working as assistant minister at the Presbyterian church in town.
By tradition, I do prefer to cross-check references in regards to what is being written while also avoiding any references to religious beliefs due to our multi-cultural environment. Humans err, my sincere apologies for this mistake
If you just intend to keep disrupting things around here to promote your new forum as a better place than our community for "fun, freedom and flexibility" as you like to announce there, then I'd really prefer that you were honest about your intentions here.
As for this statement, I would seriously like to know your plans for the future so that we can work together.
In the case of your statement quoted above, I note simply that you say this is my policy without providing any facts. I have no such policy.
If you and Lancelot have nothing to hide from public scrutiny just like you often perform to my actions around here, then I'd also wonder why you closed down the forum from public eyes after that particular comment of mine.
It really doesn't feel good to have your actions scrutinized all the time by others, yet, it is even worse when discussions move from constructive/civilized criticism onto a soap opera.
If not asking too much on your future reply, it is a fact that you have kept the forum in secret to the public but yet chosen to invite a few key developers to join. What was your selection criteria?
How do you tell apart between invited and uninvited developers?
I would like to know your rational for these actions since I've gave you full access to the forum here as administrator, access to our server machine, full control of liveXP, control of the project download list of winbuilder and just about anything at my reach that could improve the work environment.
Suffice to say that I feel disappointed after trusting and sharing all that I had with you over the years to now see myself excluded from your new endeavor without deserving your trust to be invited.
You see, around here the only case of uninvited developers in our history has been this one with Lancelot. It will last two months after several warnings were made in the past months. He is not the only person crossing the line too often but once this penalty ends, he is certainly welcome to return with a clean slate.
Yet, you attempt to defend him while:
- criticizing publicly my decision
- keeping your own forums closed from public eyes
- inviting others at your sole discretion to join.
This doesn't make you a role model in terms of forum administration as well.
All that I ask is that you work with our community rather than against it. I know that above all, you are still well intended but these past few months have made us all very bitter.
Perhaps we do need a reboot to start over again as good friends just like before.
I will do it now my friend.
