I'm not going to make some long ass winded post like yours Undertow.
Nor will I post incorrect Private Messages adding nonsense that was never written.
This "high road" that you speak of, evidently you need directions to.
We are not your "lackies", we are not under your control. Your childish rants mean nothing to us.
If your staff and clan members do not want to participate in our forums, they can simply stay away.
Just because you stomp your feet and make demands, doesn't mean you get your way.
And, yes, I do find it VERY sad that you feel like you need to control adults that can make their own decisions. Sounds like you don't trust your own members to not involve themselves in a "conflict of interest"
Looks like you are the "desperate" one here.
If there is a "smear" campaign as you want to call it, then that is on you.
We are more than happy to take your "artwork" off our website, in fact, that was the plan before you "demanded" it.
It is very sad how you are handling this. I would have expected more from you, the one that puts himself on this pedistal above everyone else in this community. You do realize that you're making yourself look like an idiot, right?
Good Luck to You.
PS...Smear it up...I'm sure that's what people who take the high road do.
