@conor - it isn't. People hold a grudge, and people get bitter over time. It's escelating. Do I have to make a movie? I have stage fright.

People don't forget and they won't start a fresh page based on the topic and thread. It still boils. As many people in this website once said - there are people behind those avatars.

Well... here I go:

@PaulMontgomery - reread some of your responses. Just adding fuel to the fire. Relax. Making fun of a member is not a good way to sustain a community.

@Josh - venting about a member on a thread is adding a ton of fuel to the fire, especially when it's done by an operator. Also the operators' tone and behaviour shows other members how far they can stretch the "be nice to each other" rule (of sorts). The operators of this website seem to have looked away when posts that as far as I can tell, contradict the website's purpose or nature were posted, because they feel the same way or are simply worn out with extinguishing fires.

I of course have no insight into your lives or thoughts, and this is a crude and very public way to criticize, and who am I to speak? I realize all that, but this situation seems to escalate and it seems like the end will be TNCs banning from the website or a forceful "resignation". Also it seems there will be a new status quo where members can insult each other, and that won't end well.

Please everyone (and yes, I'm assuming the role of the saint which doesn't fit me at all - I know I'm a hypocrite), reread your posts and other people's posts. Are you sure that's a wise way to act? Couldn't this have been done less publicly? (I realize the irony) .

It's shit like that that made me quit. iFanboy is deteriorating, and you can throw at it Einstein level material and it still won't  be a place I want to be in. Maybe I'm wrong, and maybe I'm being rude or insensitive. Maybe I'm being a dick or the only guy that doesn't see that you're right in your actions and words. Maybe I'm stepping over my boundaries. But I felt it needed to be said. 

This website holds great  intelligent people, great daily content, and caters to a lot of people and helped a lot of people. I'd hate to see it end or change shape. We could all use a drink right about now.

August 12, 2009 8:18 pm @markshak75 - being nice to animals, how not to start a conversation with a hot girl, to stick things through, to help those in need, to stay levelheaded, to use your friends, to know that you always have more to learn and that you can learn from others, the crime doesn't pay, that the bad guys aren't always bad, to explore the outdoors, and maybe some other stuff :)
August 12, 2009 9:35 am You mean Catwoman when in rome? You just jumped the shark.
August 12, 2009 8:07 am @Unoob. Yes, thanks.
August 11, 2009 11:05 pm @HailScott - because he looks like Daredevil?
August 11, 2009 10:42 pm @TNC - part of the notion, at least from what I remember Josh saying, is that you need to stick with it. You need to read several issues and eventually you'll catch up. The point was that in doing so you'll understand the basic goingons and characters of a series with hundreds of issues.

Well, you can become a cop. I'm entertaining the idea. I think I hold in higher regard comics characters who are plain detectives who are more in danger every day, and have to use their brains to solve crimes, rather than someone with gadgets or a superpower. The same with real life people - especially since real gadgets aren't as cool as their comic counterparts.

There's an ex-cop I can't find the name of who exposed wide police corruption in NY I think, and there are people like Joseph D. Pistone. Batman is an acceptance of the status quo rather than trying to change it - to change the police force or courthouses.
