    I would like to respond to this in particular.

    @coral1 has always been supportive of The Reefuge, and we have talked as friends on many occasions. If her posts are coming across in that manner, I am positive that is not how it is intended. As the president of MASOV she is stuck between a rock and a hard place replying to this thread. I give kudos that she had the courage to reply in the first place, as well as standing up for The Reefuge to the MASA committee on multiple occasions.

    Thanks.

    As I said to her (my bad) it's not a personal attack, I understand her situation, it's just how these posts have come across to me.
    Now I feel offended, being chastised by both of you for having an option on a matter that in no way shape or from is a personal attack on anyone.

    I was not saying it was a personal attack. I wanted new readers to know that @coral1 has supported us before in case the reader skims the thread and takes it out of context.

    Ah but by singling me out you have implied that what I said was Infact an attack.
    You could quite easily have said what you did in big bold letters and not having needed to single me out

    If you look a few posts up you will see I also wrote a similar message. The quote was needed for the reason above.

    Thanks.

    I am just passing along the word in the trenches. Its not often a mere pawn in the hobby has the ear of a president. When the problem is so obvious to so many people, I hardly see a reason to mince words.

    Oh "The Reefuge" ....... why oh why would you post this thread. I supported you on the censorship thread cause i thought you were stating a policy of the forum which i agreed with. But now you have hijacked your own forum. Please no more of this type of thread.

    I understand where you are coming from. It was a difficult choice if it should be posted up or not. But I decided it needed to be done for the reasons stated in my first post in this thread.

    Thanks.

    Seen this thread on the weekend & thought it's going to turn into a shit fight :(

    After reading the whole thing, kudos to all who have posted!
    This thread could have turned into personal attacks at any time, but it didn't / hasn't.

    "And that's all I got to say about that" :)

    It seems like nearly every post has been addressed and discussed, except for the ones pointing out that Chromus is kinda a dick at times. Is there an official MASA comment on why a mod is allowed to treat people poorly yet if a 'regular' member did it, they'd be told to pull their head in?

    Those that know me, should expect I call it how I see it, I've always said the general public are idiots!! sheeple.gif
    Every now & then you cant help but love those idiots unfortunately.

    On this subject I seem to recall the friction from the beginning (in between Jap porn & remembering where I left my car keys),....... and then, just like now, I could never really see the problem regardless, to me it meant nothing of substance, at best mild background noise.

    Its like the chippy slap analogy, - Happens once, fair enough, happens again, I will take the entire bowl & there isn't a damn thing you can do about it!

    I personally love whats been created here, always have. Yet in the same breath lets call a spade a spade, we're not always immune, just like the rest we have our own internal stakeholder adjustments.
    I think like a wolf, Its not rocket science people, per capita our own market share is tiny, yet look at who and where we are.
    The reefuge should have capitalized a hell of a lot more than we did,with ongoing mandate and focus on dominating the entire space - benchmarking & exceeding against the worlds best. I'd Guaranfuckingtee you clan bickering wouldn't even be a topic for discussion if I was still involved, cause the proof would be in the pudding.

    Ether way, servility costs nothing - even if I do get aroused by your petty conflict VJester.gif
