All the recent ***shi**ing, namecallings, monkey house acting, tantrum fittings, all around rudeness in later discussions, especially in the .50 cal discussions, have left a very sour taste in my mouth.

I no longer feel the joy (and that saddens me) of taking part in this forum, thus I need to take a break from it all.

Cya on Hyperlobby guys, and good luck with cleaning up in here.

With sincerity and good wishes for you all

PS: Ivan... I feel for you and your job is appreciated...

Well as my sig says. I'm here for the long haul. Even when its looks like curtians. Out of respect for the game,new and old good members, and as a repayment in support for Fun Oleg has made for us. Just let the offenders grow tired, if you let it show they will pick at it. If not they get borred and quit or leave.

Have you checked your Private Topics recently? (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=ugtpc&s=400102)

Yes this place (and any other public forum) can get a bit crazy sometimes but YOU DON'T HAVE TO PARTICIPATE in a thread you feel is offensive.

Click on the next thread instead.

Gotta agree, Orheim... The .50 cal nonsense seems to have been put to peace, It`s still left a bad taste in my mouth too. It`s really made me reconsider checking these boards.

I guess I may do the same, go for a holiday away from for about a couple of months maybe...

It's not really such a big deal - I've been checking this forum for years now, and upsets like this have happened before. They don't happen that frequently, but they do happen.

The only consequences are a bunch of ruffled feathers, sour feelings that don't deserve to hang around more than a few days, and one or two folks stop posting for a while.

The whole problem as I see it, is a lack of perspective overall. Folks get caught up in some argument that assumes a huge importance, but in the grand scheme of things is quite trivial. Without taking time to step back and see this, it's very easy to get sucked into the hysteria. And it's the hysteria that really generates the nasty and hurtful comments.

Personally, I think this little spat was fed by a lot of nervous energy generated by the wait for the patch, something that was clearly very taxing for a lot of people. As people settle down, and start to explore and enjoy the many benefits that have come with the update, I think we will see a much calmer atmosphere. The imminent release of the dedicated server will aid this as well.

In any case, I certainly think this particular storm in a teacup was fixed remarkably and creditably swiftly. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

come and hang out at the simhq-forums. I left ubi in favour of them, when this place got ridiculous and childish and crowded with teenagers. There used to be good discussions in here, and then it changed for all that sh*t.

Simhq is still quite mature and full of people with a good deal of knowledge...

Orheim, I hate to see ya leave, even for a little while, but I respect your decision. It would not be so bad, but it isn't the noobs that are stirring the doo-doo, but rather mature (ahem!) people. I'll stay here because this is where I get the scoop on everything IL2, and the enjoyment that I get out of making good friends like you is worth whatever BS I have to put up with.

~S~, and I'll see ya at HLhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Both of your absences' will have no impact. The board will continue. The current frenzy will die down on its own only to be replaced by another "crisis". Relax guys. Learn to take some threads with a grain of salt or learn not to click on em in the first place. So sit back, lurk for a while, and we'll see ya when you're active again.

I respect what you're saying and agree on most of it Orheim - There's just one thing...

If all left (even for a while) that are not part of all the real negative stuff going on lately (and I'm realy amazed to see people turn-around from real likely to real trolls this fast lately) - where would that leave this forum...

Be back soon ya hear http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
