    How could I miss this?

    I just feel necessary to say that:

    -He was the one who told me to fuck off.
    -I was worried about the safety of certain person's account.
    -If you want to post personal shit like that, please quote whatever you're talking about, tell the context in which those things were said, etc, so people can know what really happened and not just the [made up] parts where you're a hopeless victim.

    But we don't want to continue like this, do we? ;)

    @_@ cooooollllll it.

    Iceknight, as he has stated, isn't hoarding information, he's simply formatting it together to make one big update when he can. Nothing specially bad about that, and big updates get people excited.

    Sax and Iceknight may appear "cool", but ultimately they are people like you or I, wetflame. Just think of them as people, capable of error, misjudgement and trying to make a good impression.

    Although, I agree with wetflame as far as showing brenda the DHZ level goes. She has told us all she can atm, and we should treat her with respect for at least talking with us/interviewer. I personally see the level as an homage to her work.
    I understand where IceKnight is coming from, what with confusing her, but we don't know it'll confuse her, and showing the level, or pictures of, mgiht make her feel that her work all those years ago wasn't totally wasted :D

    Okay, some new things. Since another topic started on the General forum, I think these definitions should be written here to complete this topic.


    n 1: fine powdery material such as dry earth or pollen that can be blown about in the air; "the furniture was covered with dust" 2: the remains of something that has been destroyed or broken up [syn: debris, junk, rubble, detritus] 3: free microscopic particles of solid material; "astronomers say that the empty space between planets actually contains measurable amounts of dust" v 1: remove the dust from; "dust the cabinets" 2: rub the dust over a surface so as to blur the outlines of a shape; "The artist dusted the charcoal drawing down to a faint image" 3: cover with a light dusting of a substance; "dust the bread with flour" 4: distribute loosely; "He scattered gun powder under the wagon" [syn: scatter, sprinkle, dot, disperse]

    Storms of sand and dust sometimes overtake Eastern travellers. They are very
    dreadful, many perishing under them. Jehovah threatens to bring on the land of
    Israel, as a punishment for forsaking him, a rain of "powder and dust" (Deut.
    28:24). To cast dust on the head was a sign of mourning (Josh. 7:6); and to sit
    in dust, of extreme affliction (Isa. 47:1). "Dust" is used to denote the grave
    (Job 7:21). "To shake off the dust from one's feet" against another is to
    renounce all future intercourse with him (Matt. 10:14; Acts 13:51). To "lick
    the dust" is a sign of abject submission (Ps. 72:9); and to throw dust at one
    is a sign of abhorrence (2 Sam. 16:13; comp. Acts 22:23).

    n 1: a local and well-defined elevation of the land 2: structure consisting of an artificial heap or bank usually of earth or stones; "they built small mounds to hide behind" [syn: mound] 3: United States railroad tycoon (1838-1916) [syn: Hill, J. J. Hill, James Jerome Hill] 4: risque English comedian (1925-1992) [syn: Hill, Benny Hill, Alfred Hawthorne] 5: (baseball) the slight elevation on which the pitcher stands [syn: mound, pitcher's mound] v : form into a hill

    A hollow or natural passage under or into the earth, especially one with an opening to the surface.

    A storage cellar, especially for wine.

    n : an underground enclosure with access from the surface of the ground or from the sea v 1: hollow out as if making a cave or opening; "The river was caving the banks" [syn: undermine] 2: explore natural caves [syn: spelunk]

    I don't think ICEknight would qualify as anything like this. Seriously, he's one of the few people who continue to contribute something to the community. Aside from that, he always keeps his cool and doesn't attack people for ridiculous things. Why all the sudden is he an asshole?

    I was talking in general. I wouldn't call Iceknight an asshole, but I would call him very irritating and needing of a slap in the face. Reassuring someone how great they are constantly doesn't help.

    Yeah ICEKnight in general is ok, it just bugs me when he treats likely things to be 100% certain. And yeah I do get a small urge to slap him when he does that XD :ph34r:

    Glad to see there's only two people who dislike me for reasons I still don't understand.

    I don't dislike you, I just think we don't have the same way of thinking/approaching things. The way you present information is all that bothers me about you, other than that you've done some great work for the sonic community getting info and stuff so I think you're good in that respect. And besides I don't hold grudges against people, everytime I read what you say I approach it with a fresh mind.
