I don't take forum chatter personally. How can I take something personally when I don't know someone personally.
I think that's the difference between you and I. You can say whatever you want about me and unless I know u personally, nothing will stick. It's just how I am which is why I think sometimes you think I'm attacking you and I'm just speaking frankly because what does it matter.

the funny thing is, you are obviously intelligent people. but really smart people, know when to be quiet….and let life handle the rest. because in the end, if you are right…no matter the point, the truth will surface and the group will side with you. learning the power of silence is a powerful thing. but would probably make this sited a bit less interesting.
Grant, you talk about the "in" crowd, or "who" you know. you would be in this group if you simply stopped being so argumentative with people. it becomes irritating, and makes people wanna clam up and not talk with you, or even direct responses to you in the threads. this conversation has been carried by many people. on the lighter note, at least people know who you are.

Did you even read the original context of this mini-debate? Just go back to what you do best, Hemp.. making great mods, bro!! Your other commentary is barely insightful and mostly uninformed..Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

As usual. Your attitude, ignorance and mouth keeps you from doing the things you would really rather do with your time. This is something you will never catch. Cause you can't see past your own nose with your head shoved that far in your own ***. I mean really. I read the entire thing. And my comments came as an outside perspective. And seeing how you argue with so many people, you should do yourself a favor and listen to a few every now and again. You would be surprised how far opening a closed mind would get you in life. Have a great one. I'm sure you will conjure up another Intriguing argument with someone tomorrow instead of beta testing the next great thing. Cause hey, that's what your good at.

When I first came here - I saw a lot of clique-ish behavior. I loathe that and spoke up about it often. THOSE are the days you're referring to. But I'm no longer the starter of all those arguments anymore. Again if you spent time in more threads than just being a fanboy of Elite6 - you'd know that.
The context for this recent issue was a difference of opinion on what constitutes respect in capitalization of first names. And occasionally I still have to "Set some self-important noob straight". It's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it. Lol!!
Now if you're an intelligent adult and not some kid, feeling brave behind his keyboard, you'll drop this barrage of smack toward me, hemp, and come to UniAW, iWidgets and a few other threads where some real innovation is happening and get to know the "real me".. and stopping wasting your time looking for a fight long after this little debate wrapped up last week.
And get over yourself, hemp. You put your pants on the same way I do: one leg at a time.. I respect you as a veteran around here - and you do amazing work.. But you've only been here a little longer than me - please get to know -ME- and not the caricature of me you'd prefer to see.. Before last week show me ONE thread where I was in an argument in the 3 months prior?! There isn't one.. Why not? I'm movin on to more important things.. You should too, bro.

Lol. I appreciate you proving my point for me. You have a good one Grant.

Exactly. Which means Krima is correct calling you a hypocrite. Looking at it now, I just feel like you love being engaged in heated conversation with people. Which is cool You should have been a lawyer
Now. The proving of my point is clicking back to what I initially said. About knowing when to be quiet. Lol
On the real, I have a real job, and a real family of my own. So ima go to work so I can support the ones I love. Have a great day

I agree with you, Grant has been a lot better by comparison. I'm going to take just a small amount of credit for that because Him and I would get into all the time. A lot was intentional by me in hopes that things would be seen and he could have a better experience here.
It must take a lot for Hemp to speak up though because that man is always chocolate covered smiles and happy go lucky rainbows.

The disproportionate thing here was Hemp's "losing it". Of all the issues that I've "spoken into" here - this one was so "small".. And SO "un-heated".. It's as if hemp has wanted to "set me straight" for a LONG time and THIS little "nothing" debate was the last straw for him.. Lol!! Kinda weird.
But I've been there - at "I've HAD ENOUGH".. moments with raising my 4 kids to adulthood.. and other people that have rubbed me the wrong way.. I get it.. Thanks, hemp, for reminding me to NOT go back to the "old Grant".. I didn't like him much either... Lol!! But I assure you, despite Simon's frustratingly accurate accounting, the guy you are characterizing, no longer is at MMI. Give me a chance, bro..
And Krima, despite your desire to take credit for my rehabilitation.. I've always seen you as just a funny "young man" mostly interested in having a good time and not being able to resist sarcasm. When I realized your "heart" was basically good and the rest was just immature kid-ness I lightened up on you. But it was King's turnaround with me and Simon's "mega patience" that helped me "see the light"... (.. choir sings "aahh" in background...)..
Let's move on gang.. All points have been made - and I thought this debate was SO done -- over cooked.....,Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

Fair enough Grant on the credit part. I don't think I'm a kid age wise. It's a little condescending to say that just like it is a little rude just to say that you are just some old dude trying to be relevant to a younger generation. Facts are facts and valid arguments can and do get made by all ages. We can always learn and grow no matter the source.
I'm happy u saw my "heart" because most of it really was just in jest. I work in the IT industry and having a playful and light attitude can make the difference between you enjoying your job or hating it.

Keep going in the direction your going Grant, you've come a long way. Glad I could help. Looking forward to seeing your pano mod. We're keeping our eye on this.
