  1. Mr MooMoo Answers to all my concerns better than I had hoped. Good luck and may life never crush out your sense of justice. As per not holding grudges that is rare, beware those who say they hold no grudges, but deceive. You are leader that many will follow (not ability to use power <any tyrant can do that> defines a leader, but how one persuades to comply and follow. Don't use power to stifle debate, use persuasion.) Regards and Success GD
  2. Mr Moo Moo: Since I was demoted as soon as a reason could be created, I wish you had NOT supported me. Never oppose the party line, ever. People want peace not justice. Now to two questions. Do you regret supporting me when you did (I think you should but that is on me.), would you support someone else in such a situation and why,Do you have a comment on Mr Ray's banning now or when it happened (I deem it wise if you do not.)? Finally (and most important to me), will you vote because another peer votes in a particular way or only user your own judgement (This is a softball question of course). I. of course, will vote my plus one if you pass evaluation but was hesitant to state this here, as a vote from a pariah may hurt you. Good Luck and May The All father see your actions (for he loves the battle of the just) GD
  3. Congratulations on using your own money to do whatever you want. Never let someone else tell you what you should use your cash on, there is too much of that in the world already. (If I ever want to waste an extra million or so, I will buy licenses of hated television shows and songs and archive them forever. The Barney song and show will never be seen by mankind again.)
  4. Actually not true, ask Ms Terra, a post was deleted. Last post, did not see Terra's warning until now
  5. To whom it may concern: My negative vote for Beer was removed after I called him untrustworthy, deceitful and unworthy of higher office of any kind (many other words cannot remember all as it was deleted) . Question is why ? Why was it removed by the general who voted 15 points for his promotion ? (I vote four negative, can she not find someone else to dump another ten to fifteen votes to nullify my vote. What difference does it make if we have differing opinions on this promotion. I was told by Ms Terra that "people vote negative for good and bad reason? and I had to eat that on my evaluation. I feel that the removal was made by the general that voted 15 votes for his promotion, please next time have another general remove the vote so the IMAGE of fairness remains (as the last bruhaha has shown, the reality is NOT there), I feel it was removed because I dared to oppose the will of a general. To silence those who think I just vote negative I just voted positive for purple's and Moo moo's last promotion. Everything I said in my negative vote was true. Is this how votes for anything are going to continue, just go back to appointment. This looks ridiculous to me, at L:EAST make the effort to appear fair.. Regards GD PS I expect this to be just deleted or me get disabled or banned because of this post, I am sickened by the appearance of favoritism and injustice and lack of consistency. I am NOT even going to vote negative again, because, honestly, what would be the point, the powers have spoken. I am going to copy and mass mail this to all general and higher befeore this removed and people do not see the truth. (if you don't care <understandable> just delete it)
  6. Congratulations on both,, prayers for many more to come.
  7. Mr Badboi: Seemed to have lost my last post due to a connection hiccup (I hope it was not immediately deleted.) I realize that people may have listed an error in their evaluations, but the one's I have read are not very informative. I appreciate the answers to this already, Mr Compfreaks and Mr Quintin being informative. Even a "I do not want to publicly post it" is informative and instructive. I do not expect to get an answer from everyone, some are unavailable and some care not to. Others cannot admit to an error and I hope the only place people like that get power is on this board. I myself answer any question and this gets me in trouble but the trouble it gets me into here is now not as immediate to me. I appreciate the "special bond" you have with pariahs such as me and Ray but as Mr Quintin stated there is a post of every error a person has made in the general's board, Ray was correct in believing errors follow you forever (they follow you without a post but that is another story.) sorry for the declarative "I" in the above sentences, but have no time to sweeten the cadence. A question for you, as commander nothing can really touch you now, what is your greatest error? (Did people ask you to post their errors were in the general's evaluation or did you do that on your own <either is interesting to me >.) Thank you for your time GD
  8. Mr Aerineth: What a cheap lesson to learn this in a game forum, instead of something important in life. Thank you for your reply. Regards GD
  9. Mr CompFreak: Got them, Nice work. Beautiful lake, I am envious. Many Thanks GD PS Terra you could delete this post and the reply and request for the pics for clarities sake if you like for space's sake.
  10. Mr CompFreak: You have attained wisdom at a cheap price, never act out of anger or any outside stimulant, grief (death of loved ones, etc.). I wish all members of the "Powers" had obtained your insight, wise insight is a gift. Congratulations on learning this lesson in a game forum, think how destructive this error could be in real life (like with a client, etc.). Acting out of temporary angst can make life long adversaries that will wait for the right moment. If you did not apologize (sincere or not is irrelevant), silence did not mean acceptance. Good for you repairing it immediately , I am so glad the explanation was accepted instead of being ignored out of arrogance or surety of correctness. . It is not awful to recognize this. I approve of "clearing your conscience" (this might also be called karma) but when dealing with some it just invites being walked over. Never submit in your inner being, patience always brings opportunities Regards GD PS Would still love to see some phone pictures as the house is built in the woods, post them in one of the non game forums, seriously interested in such things here. If not, that's OK, I love "rustic crafts" and everything outdoors (keep an apple tree on the property, deer love them).
  11. Ms Terra: I understand wanting to keep it secret. The courtesy of the reply was enough. I did not ask to embarrass or shame anyone (how rude that would be.) DO NOT PM the error, if it got out I would be blamed even if innocent , I want people honestly to confess an error they have made, we learn more from errors of character then from success, we see the true face of a person when things do not go well. Thank you for your polite reply. (Also people when drunk are usually forgiven much in my culture. I wonder how many will read this and ignore the post, at least it will quiet things down, an unintended benefit perhaps ? ) Be Well GD PS I also understand the fear of people using an error against you, in OD there is NOTHING I am sorry for even when an insincere apology is demanded (very Asian that, I approve, shame is a powerful motivator).
  12. To All The Powers That Be (generals of all stars and Commanders please though active senior officers that wish to share are welcome.): I have wondered the following question (actually linked with a common theme.) because of the recent bruhaha and the past bruhaha (yes I like this word): What is your greatest error or mistake concerning OD ? (just OD, real life is irrelevant in this case and if you have made no errors I congratulate you on perfection and your intellect, I wish I had your judgement.) How long did it take you to realize you made an error? Did this error harm the clan ? If so, how ? What was your reasoning for the error (everyone believes that what they did was right at the time.)? After you realized this error, how long until you corrected it (how was this done if complex) , if possible (some things cannot be repaired. ) and if you did not correct it why not? I realize no one likes to admit to errors so I expect scant responses and a possible deletion but I have been wrong and surprised before. (Not all surprises are pleasant, betrayal is a great surprise to the betrayed for example.) Confession is good karma, but for those that do not believe I know that honesty increases respect while deceit is contemptible. Be aware what you share is here forever (unless Ms Terra deletes it, a chat board is NOT a free speech area) so be aware some things should remain asleep. If you do not want to say anything, just say that, better to say nothing then pretend you did not read this and ignored it. I ask these questions due to a appearance of imperiousness and non communication by the powers that be. (I see this, others may have other opinions as I do not know every power and wish to understand all.. Others may have other opinions on the approachability, veracity and judgement of the powers and that is their right. THESE ARE SERIOUS QUESTIONS, do not think I ask them to be a gadfly.) Who dares to be honest and speak? Honesty is one of the hardest virtues in the world. Interested and eager for a serious response. GD
  13. Mr CompFreak: On a completely unrelated note (Ms terra please do not delete this request) can you please post pictures of this or do you have a facebook where you are showing the house in progress. I am fascinated by "pioneer crafts" and ancient arts, I LOVE cabins, hunting, fishing (I field dress and eat anything I hunt by the way, meat comes from animals not the magic supermarket fairy) etc. (save the scrap wood for a Franklin stove). Another post in the community section would be excellent if convenient for you. I wanted to be "Jeremiah Johnson" as a child (old person movie reference) You did make it yourself. A remnant of the past. Regards GD PS Technically this is a question of the leaders.
  14. Mr CompFreak: I realize any bureaucracy has a tremendous inertias, but as Ray pointed out (I do not care for him but I serve truth and try to improve things and in some ways he is correct). Some things are of the immediacy of five breaths and some can be done in the future. OD seems to be in a crisis right now, resignations, unhappy people, sniping arguments and hatred, Certain things need to be prioritized and it is human nature to tackle easy problems first, Who decides what is important and what is irrelevant trivia? In a meeting a study showed that over half the time is wasted on the trivial. I meant to include you in my above post so please read it, at least the summary, but as my little dog was scratching at my leg as I wrote this demanding a cookie and I forgot. No discourtesy was intended. Regards GD PS Ms Terra Please inform me if this is an abuse.
