The virtue of being a decent person (in General)


QBOddBird June 20 2009 1:15 PM EDT

If you see someone trying to help out a newbie by renting them an item for a low price - new players do not have a PM box - it's generally assumed that you won't be a [Admin Edit] and rent the item that was placed in there at minimum price for that newbie.

Tal Destra, you are a total [Admin Edit], and the game will be far better off the day you leave.

I could have gotten the corn before everyone but I decided to be a good person. :)

/me wants to punch Tal in the face for doing what he did.
Once again, I appreciate what you tried to do OB, atleast there was another nice person in the game that gave me a Corn and a BoF aswell. :)

Admiralkiller June 20 2009 1:40 PM EDT

Now that is in very poor taste....but I find it very very very hilarious. man oh man is that funny...

Burton June 20 2009 1:45 PM EDT

It may have happened to me, but I wouldnt see it being funny if I was on your side of it either. He sniped a Rent, it's just bad mannered. I'm very confused how it is even remotely funny. :/

Mikel June 20 2009 1:52 PM EDT

Since we are talking poor taste here.

Just like how you asked for my clanmates base Tattoo that he was giving away to a newbie, and now you have it in Auctions? When it was meant to be used? If you were going to auction it, you shouldn't have taken it, he was giving it to someone that didn't have one. Shame on you.

Zenai June 20 2009 1:53 PM EDT

OB - It is in bad taste to make a thread about a personal beef. No matter what Tal did you are not making it any better by doing this.

Tal - it is in bad taste to let your personal beef with OB bleed over to others. Neither is it right nor is it fair to people who have no clue as to what is going on.



When it is a one on one kind of thing go for broke and I hope the both of you have fun going at it. But when it involves other people put your differences on the back burner BOTH of you!

Lefty June 20 2009 1:58 PM EDT

Nowhere did he say I had to use it and nowhere did I say I was going to use it.
He just simply said he found one and said he didn't need it, so I said I would take it and 5 minutes later he gave it to me.
Mikel, I don't think you understand and you're making yourself look quite bad. He said he didn't need it and was giving it to a NUB, me being a NUB I said I would take it. Was I supposed to know that he wanted to give it away to someone to use? Was I supposed to know that without him saying anything about that to me? If he wanted to give it away to someone to use it, he should have looked at my characters and realized I had no actual use for it. Shame on you Mikel for having no idea what this is about and yet still pointing a finger at me for doing the wrong thing when I had absolutely no intent to do so.

Burton June 20 2009 2:00 PM EDT

Woops, that was supposed to be me who posted that. My friend left his character logged on. zz

BadFish June 20 2009 2:00 PM EDT

Oh, this is just a super thread.

Zenai June 20 2009 2:02 PM EDT

This is why I do not like threads like this. There is always someone who wants to point a finger. I swear if I had Admin powers this Thread would be either closed or nixed. It serves no purpose other than to allow people to start a mass mess of things.

Once again /me Facepalms!

Mikel June 20 2009 2:02 PM EDT

I am seriously confused, he didn't give it to you, He gave it to Burton.

Did you just mess up and respond with another account?

Zenai, that's similar to telling someone who was ripped off by Monty that bringing their issue into the public is a personal thing and unnecessary - the community should know when someone lacks any sense of civility and _consistently_ does things that are in poor taste.

Believe it or not, there are some people we just really don't need in our community. Monty, Crackmonkey, kitty, these have all been past examples; I've seen a lot of distasteful behavior from Tal Destra since his arrival here a few months ago, and I lump him into that group.

My point is that the community should KNOW about underhanded people and their dealings so that they can take that into consideration in their future dealings with that person.

And yes, I also posted because I'm pissed at him for being a jerk. I know that's just my opinion, but I feel like expressing it.


On a more humorous note, what a turn this thread just took with the Emotion/Burton post! *evil grin*

Adios Muchachos June 20 2009 2:09 PM EDT

"_consistently_"

only towards someone who has from day one, treated me as an underling, someone who didn't deserve respect at all.

In order to be respected, you must give it.

Burton June 20 2009 2:11 PM EDT

I posted on my friends account because he logged on mine and spent some BA while I got something to eat, so I thought I was still on my character when I posted. Sorry for the confusion.
Emotions post = mine
But anyway, I do not care.
Tal, do whatcha want.
Mikel, point your finger at me for being shameful or whatever. I had no idea he wanted me to use it, since he never informed me.

QBOddBird June 20 2009 2:11 PM EDT

As far as I am concerned, your behavior never has and never will merit my respect.

Burton June 20 2009 2:12 PM EDT

I posted on my friends account because he logged on HIS**

same to you

Burton June 20 2009 2:15 PM EDT

So Tal, because you hate OB, you had to snipe his item he was giving to me? Are you trying to prove something, or make your and his relationship worse?
I'm also glad you think about other people too, shows what kind of person you truly are.

Windwalker June 20 2009 2:17 PM EDT

Something just doesn't smell right in here. Smells like burning flesh. Shoot I need a NUB friend on my computer too ;)

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- June 20 2009 2:18 PM EDT

Can you guys take this to PM, this is exactly the sort of thing this forum DOESN'T need (more animosity). Not saying an opinion on the matter because I don't have one. This is a no-win thread. :(

Zenai June 20 2009 2:19 PM EDT

OB - Believe it or not, there are some people we just really don't need in our community. Monty, Crackmonkey, kitty, these have all been past examples; I've seen a lot of distasteful behavior from Tal Destra since his arrival here a few months ago, and I lump him into that group.

If this is the case take it to an Admin. Pissed or not it is in bad taste for you to do this, you are better than that, we both know it.

QBOddBird June 20 2009 2:19 PM EDT

NP, we did. :P

This will be my last post in the thread, hopefully.

Adios Muchachos June 20 2009 2:20 PM EDT

No, i can't pm. I have been /kill-ed by OB, even though it was not merited at all.

Mikel June 20 2009 2:22 PM EDT

"What new player needs a base tat."

First Burton/Emotion you aren't all that new with a 3.5 mil score Character.

It is implied that when someone says NEW, that it is someone that doesn't have a tattoo or is still using a Lesser.

Looking over your character, you took it simply to be greedy and took an advantage of someone trying to be nice.

He gave it to you yesterday and today you have it in Auctions. That is shameful. Why don't you give it to someone NEW and help them since it was given to you in good faith.

I'm from Cincinnati baby, that man is worshiped here!

Burton June 20 2009 2:26 PM EDT

This is just and only Burton talking, Emotion has absolutely nothing to do with this so no need to get him tied up into this.
I had no clue he meant to do that and I had no clue I was expected to not receive it. I am sorry I have no clue how things work around here. I'll give it right back to WW. Next time something like this happens with someone, instead of going outright confronting them in a post in the forums, how about you talk to them first to hear their side of the story.

{CB1}Lukeyman June 20 2009 2:40 PM EDT

I come back to CB and this is what's happening?

Holy smokes people can't we all just get along like the good ol days?

*memories of me and OB running through fields to go get some pie.. from bast...? hahaha i dunno but that pie is beside the point, the point is all this tom foolery is getting us no where, i mean... this is why the wars are happenin, don't see any of this up here in canada do you.... just sayin..

Mikel June 20 2009 2:48 PM EDT

If you could keep your geese in Canada, I'd be much happier, but alas, even they want to leave the Country!

QBOddBird June 20 2009 2:49 PM EDT

Canada oppresses the US! Sitting on our heads for hundreds of years...

Lochnivar June 20 2009 2:58 PM EDT

they just want to leave for the winter Mikel...

... and just to be clear, you love a guy who got busted by bouncing a personal cheque to a working girl?

(and yes, it is spelled 'cheque' and not 'check' Curse your American abominations of language!)

Ernest-Scribbler June 20 2009 3:00 PM EDT

Try living here loch.....

Mikel June 20 2009 3:07 PM EDT

"... and just to be clear, you love a guy who got busted by bouncing a personal cheque to a working girl? "

Are you kidding? That is his signature move!

BHT June 20 2009 3:07 PM EDT

Oh boy! This is better then Maury!

Admiralkiller June 20 2009 3:10 PM EDT

Yea lots of people and animals leave Canada during the winter.
But they all come back for the summer.

And burton I find it funny because it's cruel and unusual... my sense of humor is twisted.
Also Tal did not break any rules more bad etiquette.
