Yeah... Very first post: You called my methods cheap, then accused me of bribing reviewers.
Look man, it's a personal opinion. Whether you like it or not. The only reason to be upset by it is if you think the person stating it has a point.
A person is not entitled to think that they are beyond criticism or reproach.
While I wouldn't have called it "bribery" outright, it's not something I agree with either. But, hey, to each their own. If all you care about is profit, then you do you.
If you aren't proud of chasing that profit and doing whatever you're doing to chase it... then maybe you shouldn't do that anymore?
I was taught from an early age that if you aren't proud of something you did do, are doing, or will do... you shouldn't be doing it.
I have respect for people chasing profit and saying, "yeah, doesn't matter, it works, and I want to make money, so I don't care what you think about it."
Even if I don't agree with the method or find it utterly distasteful.
Not answering the original question, just cheap shots my way. And why? Well, I have an idea... You started doing this at some point, while you were completely fine with my posts before that. Same goes for MT.
I... don't understand this point of view. "Someone used to agree with me, therefore they should always agree with me"? Is that the implication? "Someone disagrees with me, therefore they are an enemy and terrible and will always disagree with me" is the other implication of the sentences here.
I'm not sure what you're trying to say here, but it sort of rubs me the wrong way. It reads very much like "my way or no way" and "if you don't agree with me, then you're a terrible person".
You're free to clarify if that isn't what you meant, but as of right now... it doesn't sound very pleasant.
You know... For about 6 or 7 years I have spend about 8 hours a day helping people in this community (mostly on steam, though)... You and your buddies are the reason I don't like to do that anymore. Did you know that?
"Buddies"? I'm confused. Do you view when a majority of people don't agree with your point of view as somehow conspiring against you and they're all "friends"? I'm not really sure what to make of this accusation.
I mean, there's a LOT of people who don't agree with me, but I don't think I've ever viewed them all as "friends" or even some sort of conspiracy against me. They're just people who don't agree with me and I happen to be in the minority. Big whoop. I'm comfortable with who I am as a person and my own viewpoints. I wouldn't express them if I weren't comfortable in them. I am happy to be comfortably in the minority or even comfortably wrong.
So, I don't understand the sentiment you're attempting to express here. Who cares if you're in the minority? Why do you even care if people don't agree with you? I don't get it. Does it change how you're going to live your life if people don't agree with you? If it won't, then why should it even bother you?
