Quote:If I am beating my head against a wall, so be it. I'd rather do that for a just cause then use another community's board as my personal political propoganda website.

Quote:though the other board isn't the community's either, Kal has made it clear that he is the owner of the board. If the community rose up and demanded he abdicate, do you think he would? do you think he'd hand over the allspark to someone else? or do you think he'd simply ban the rabble rousers?

Quote:Kalidor's prompt resignation and removal as owner and all admin over at Allspark.com the prompt handover of all things Allspark.com to Tarry, and Tarry's choice of admin while he becomes the owner and operator of Allspark.com. there is your counter offer. that is a little less as extreme as kal's offer. So I believe this offer is more reality based.
Quote:People would be far more apt to accecpt and welcome you and your group if you just give up on this quest to be "The Allspark". Whether you like it or not, that's what's holding you back and that's what people are angry about.
Quote:Another thing you might notice is that in all the time we've been on the Ikonboard, there have only ever been *Two* posts by me that publicly address the issue. One was the April fool's day joke, the other was a post sometime in June or July that gave a prepared recap that I had saved should the need ever arise to explain what happened. That's it.
Quote:I'd feel pretty bad if I wasn't able to show my face at Botcon or know that other heavy hitters in the fandom shunned me.
Quote:So you really want to know my advice? What I think would help you guys out and be the community you want to be? Ditch the notion that people are ever going to accept you as The Allspark and just start fresh. Create an identity for yourself that stands for everything you want it to and go from there. Obviously no one can stop you from using the Ezboard, but I still say the best thing is to start fresh. And I know what you're thinking, and I know what Hector is thinking "Oh @#%$, he's just saying that so he can get what he wants! We will never give in to him, we will never surrender and we will never be defeated" and sadly that's the attitude that's holding you back.
Quote:Shawn, I honestly don't know what to say or offer him. You have to understand that I really feel terribly used, and his e-mail offered me nothing. He doesn't seem willing to yield, or make even the slightest gesture to meet us even 1/10th of the way. All he was willing to offer was a vague promise to speak well of us if we decide to fold up shop and slink away. That's a hard pill to ask me to swallow, especially since I feel so wronged by him.Have you ever seen Greg crush someone he thinks of as an enemy? I have. Often. Greg still thinks of me that way. I can read it in his words, in his attitude. He could have offered me something, some gesture. But he didn't. I am beneath his contempt.
Quote: Listen we don't really need him one bit. And there is no way that we're ever going to trust him.I really feel bad that a noble hearted effort by Shawn and you is treated this way, but you need to understand. I know kalidor very well, he will never compromise his notion of "power" over the poor easily lead kids that idolize him. He thinks of himself as a "God" sans his e-mail address.He always thought of making a buck out of the AllSpark, be it sooner or later.Just let him drop out of our thoughts.If we're making changes, it will be because all of us want them. Not to please or serve that person.Just let it go.
Quote: Dear Greg,It just occurred to me that my failure to respond in some way to your last e-mail was less than courteous, and so I'm dashing off this little note. My friends and I had hoped to find some way for both our communities to live in harmony, but we see nothing in your response that we can even clutch at as evidence that you share this hope. I'm afraid we're not willing to set aside what we contend is a valid claim in the face of what we perceive to be a grave injustice done to us. I think, moreover, that we are faced here with fundamental differences in outlook. I think you are wrong about many things you've mentioned: the disinterest of your community in our continued existence, my sincerity as a supporter of ezboard, our motivations, and most especially that we share by implication your outlook on what best serves to measure a healthy, happy community. I look forward to the day when I can forgive you, but not so much for your sake as for my own; although that day now seems as distant as ever.Raleigh.
