I was alerted to the fact that some people were wondering why my account was locked out on The Miniatures Page a while back, despite my games generally being well regarded over there.
I'd let this lie but people who are interested deserve to know and the truth has a habit of being distorted by the management of the site.
So if you care about internet drama, here you go. If you do not, well, good on you.
To clarify a long time ago, in a discussion about US policy in Afghanistan, a gentleman suggested that we should adopt the methods of the Germans in handling the issue due to their brutality.
As I'm not a particularly great fan of genocide, I posted a picture of German soldiers executing Russian civilians and asked if that's what he meant.
The gentleman, who prides himself on being a straight shooter who disdains people being too easily offended reported my post, which got me locked for a few days.
The charge was that I'd called him a Nazi.
While my account was locked, the gentleman in question repeatedly slandered me on the forums.
When I got unlocked, I posted that I was going to take a few days off the forum.
Bill, the editor and owner of the site, took that as an opportunity to personally attack and insult me, while several posters pointed out that the initial charge was absurd and that I shouldn't have been sanctioned at all.
So I resolved to not return as anyone would have done.
However, I believe in forgiving and forgetting, so I will extend this offer:
Should Bill provide a written apology including the words "I am sorry I am such a massive tool" then I would consider returning to his site.
That is all.
