    PSU is a business, but not for the majority of the staff. They're nominated and work for free, so once again I am dubious about your 'man up and act the part' speech because the staff (atleast at the SMC level) don't see a cent and aren't really compensated in any meaningful way.

    Do you get paid? If so, then it is fair for your superiors to expect you to act and behave in the manner you are now exhibiting. But it is a bit silly to demand it of those who work under you out of a sense of commitment to the community. In particular if they were selected for traits which made them superior posters in the first place, but then you ask them to squelch and mute themselves in the public forum.

    That is not a well oiled and lubricated machine. It's cramming a square peg into a round hole.

    And of course we both realize that being totally unbiased, fair, and objective is a tall order to ask of anybody- paid or not.

    To be frank, you strike me as someone who has unrealistic expectations.


    Sigh, and no this is not out of some kind of resentment for being demoted. I was woefully inactive, especially my duties, given my academic, professional and personal life. My demotion was well deserved on those grounds.

    This is me being as objective as possible about this, without staying silent of course.
    I don't really agree with this. The fact that mods don't get paid has nothing to do with it imo. I became a mod @ Gearbox because I loved the community and I wanted be a supporting pillar of it's smooth running. Of course, my posting habits changed as a mod. However, the point of contention on that site wasn't 360 vs PS3 supporters but hacking/modding vs legit players. As a poster I was very vocal, along with many others in the community, about the hacking and how it ruined the game for many, but when I became a mod I had to accept that the role calls for objectivity and an impartial mindset. Sometimes I had to take action against posters who were breaking the rules in disputes regarding hacking and how it $#@!ed the game...it was just part and parcel of making the choice to serve the community and have that responsibility.

    Why? I have been here since 2007, don't get paid, and remain objective.

    If I can do it, I can expect staff to as well. The key component is they have to love the site and want to invest the time to help it grow. That is my expectation.

    If it isn't in their mindset to do it, I don't want them on staff. Simple.

    post removed - I asked you to keep $#@! like this to yourself when I demoted you, seems you can't even obey that request. -CUGUY


    LMFAO, you deleted the post? Nice, well guys here is all the proof you need.

    Also I am not obligated to obey any request post-demotion, I didn't sign any NDA as I recall. Any of you gents want to hear what I actually said, please PM me.

    To be frank, you had no grounds to delete that post. Aside from hurt feelings, I didn't do anything which would warrant a deletion. I'll take this up with an Admin or mod.

    I broke no rules, you were complicit in the ongoing discussion (actively), I didn't use use any profanity/flaming terms to lob at you. It was a dissenting opinion.

    What are your justifications?

    i don't need justification.

    that post was just an attempt to get a mundane pointless argument about your perception of my character, which you have zero clue about.

    So I removed it.

    Lol that's pathetic, you had no grounds.

    I'm going to take that up with Bishop and the admins.

    Probably won't resolve anything, but I'll try. Regardless, you're cementing what i've been saying in this thread.

    =D

    Toodles.

    @everyone else

    I'll pm you shortly, need to retype it in a word doc.

    to be honest, this argurement you have with Cuguy is pointless and between the two of you, and SHOULD be done in PM's, that is exactly what I would tell anyone else that would be going after someones character as if it is ever a topic for public debate
