Uh, what am I reading here? So he had a question and was rebuffed then everything fell apart. I don't know Alfred, but why dump on the guy? I didn't see his attitude as particularly "shitty". Agreed, the one post he made was pissy, but so what? Are we becoming so milksop we can't tolerate someone frustrated with a little bad attitude?
Yes, defense force and piling one chased him away and that's not a good thing. And I say that with great respect for Jon and Phaeron! Free speech doesn't mean we always agree with what is said, but the person is still a human being.
