Not the first time he has got his knickers in a twist about nothing in that case.

That's true.

But also, you and me talked about a a new tournament and then all of a sudden, you pissed off.

So I took it upon myself to create the game from the bare bones.

I offered once to you to take the acceptance for the game and put your name alongside mine and you literally spat in my face.

Being insulted is an artform, I'll grant you that.

But you will never be allowed credit for Pot Black, ever!

I gave you the chance once. I will never do it again.

Making working games in Factacular is hard enough. Putting up with mealy mouthed wanna be's can be harder still. Particilarly when they name a game, but do none of the work. Then have the gaul to show up and criticise.

I would suggest you just leave it to us and just BTFO.

Unless you have something to offer instead of just standing about and beefing.

You have stood over while others ran tournaments on your behalf.

And you had the gaul to criticise while they ran them even though you were not capable of doing it yourself?

Members notice stuff. They noticed that.

I may screw up from time to time. But I will NEVER do what you did.

There's a principal involved that may mean hard work and dilligence.

Something apparently you know nothing about.

I don't believe in "Karma". It's a bullshit reference to a concept nobody can adequately explain. Or if they do, it's THEIR explanation made up by their bootstraps intended to suit them and them alone.

"Karma", through websites like Reddit.com alone, placate the idea that "Karma" is an actual thing rather than an ideal.

That ideal, all by itself, is the exact opposite of the Yin and Yang required.

But, you know what, knock yourselves out and apply "Karma" the way you want.

You may be right, you may be wrong, you may know, you may not know.

But don't TELL me what Karma is. Because in doing so, you have redifined what Karma is.....doofus.

Ludicrous, I started the Kevvie , ran it single handed using pen and paper.

Teabag named it the Kevvie.

Every thing you say is against the Facts, as can be proved by merely looking back at the records. As technology came in I stood back in an advisory role.

I stood back from Pot Black because you knifed me in the back.

You remember that surely ?? you know, when I posted about the qu**rs that you wanted a Roll of Honour for ? and you told JMK I said they deserved to die ?? quite why she believed you I don't know.

I wish you two would give up this unedifying exchange. I get it that you don't like each other anymore. Are you trying to make the site as unattractive as possible with your quarrel?

You have both contributed massively to quizzing on this site, I am grateful for this, I like taking part in the Kevvie and I am a fan of  Pot Black.

kevg, I was one of the people who posted against your comment about jmaxg's wish to remember victims of an act of terror. I don't think that anyone said that you deserved to die. (Have you been hacking in to PMs or were you PM'd?) Your comment was deleted and you were banned for a couple of weeks. Fair enough, I would have preferred that this didn't happen and a discussion on bullying comments on-line and freedom of speech on-line might have been started. If JMK thought you deserved to die, are you now living in fear of the NZ hit squad?

A NZ hit squad.......was does that look like? 7 to 10 little fat bottomed birds with big feat?

Just kidding.....the NZ SAS are one of the best in the world.

Ruby Franks is right.

I pointed you out, big guy, specifically because you didn't seem to care about the many lives we lost in the Florida shooting.......but because they were gay, then it may be less of a crime.

It wasn't just me, it was others that contributed and then the boss made her decision.

Seeing you getting banned was not our ideal punishment. But JMK did her job and applied the penalty.

I guess none of us saw how much you hated gay people before. That's the point.....you said what you said.

jmaxg loves his brother. But what if it turned out hypothetically my son and therefore your nephew was gay?

The response of him getting shot in a club is not acceptable, is it? Or is it?

Either we have to get our relationship worked out, or you just have to be the bigot in our community.

Which means I can no longer regard you as my brother.

Let's put an end to this fighting.

Kev has been a valuable member of the Factacular community with his work on the Kevvie and he has also done a heap of work to update subjects in Factacular. 

I never said Kev deserved to die, far from it. No-one said that to the best of my knowledge.

Kev's comment broke terms of sevice so he was banned for 2 weeks. I am happy to see him back on the site again.

I welcome discussion on this site so long as terms of service are not broken. 

I don't wish do see any more posts where members defame each other, that is not within the spirit of Factacular. Let's get on with the point of the site - playing quizzes.

jmaxg is right.....we are here for one thing only and that is to play quizzes, so in saying that roll on the December Decathlon and lets have fun, this time of the year is not the time for bickering it is a time for forgiveness and putting the past behind and move forward.

Studio Ghibili.

They gave us such inspired nonsense as the ten feet tall and four feet wide idiocy that was Tortoro.

This thing existed.

Well, It didn't actually. That would be silly. The differerence between actual existence and and a Studio Ghibili concept is just weird. Especially Totoro.

Yet the love for this amazing creature, born from fantasy, as it sits in the rain forlornly holding up it's little umbrella given to him by Satsuki is literally us and our forlorn love of ourselves. One of many interpretations of that very scene.

Whatever the message was, Hayao Miyazaki not only loves us, he seeks us and regards us as the key.

Given what a creative mind he is, I find that humbling.

"Kev's comment broke terms of sevice "

By not inserting ** in the word qu**rs ???????

Some may think it is wrong to be nasty to them, I'm not bothered either way, but unfortunately unless you are nice to them you get blocked !!

If they don't scare the horses they can do what they want, just don't expect me to like it.

"I never said Kev deserved to die"

Nope, never said you did, Jmax did in a private email to me. Probably he was drunk again.

FFS people this is a quiz site. Aren't you people over 60 years old? This arguing and trolling is the type of stuff 10 years old are doing on their I-phones these days. Get over whatever the underlying cause of this garbage is already, it's tiring to the 99% of the site who aren't involved.

Points to clear up.....

No....we are not 60 years old. But are damn close.

There is a difference between arguing and trolling. Trolling is the online process by which you try and entice somebody to say something......anything! You would think it's all about getting people angry and prone to outbursts. But look again.

If kevg is "trolling" or I am "trolling", there is a reason.

Note the forums like General Discussion and others and why members are not posting original thoughts anymore.

Instead of "jmaxg" as the creator, there should be a myriad of different usernames. Doesn't anybody get that?

Just like my earlier thoughts about heaven and why I don't think it, as a concept, can exist.

There is no dynamic....no positive or negative, no push or pull, no hot or cold, no up or down, no left or right. We NEED these opposing elements to exist and THAT is what life is based on.

So stop blaming kevg and me, get up off your asses and start thinking for yourselves.

And those 7 likes? Don't get me started.

"Stop blaming kevg and me..."
Blame or no blame, killerb54 has a point.  Private arguments  conducted in a public forum are very off-putting.  People don't want to feel like they are being dragged into some-one else's drama. Imagine this was an actual pub.  You wouldn't expect eveybody stand around silently while you & kevg indulged in fisticuffs in the middle of the bar-room would you?
C'mon guys!

But at the same time, you would not expect kevg and me to sit in a bar, blithely, watching everyone drink with no discussion, no dynamic, no argument. BOTH of us would choose to move to another bar in a heart-beat.

(hint, hint)

Getting charged is one thing. Not getting excited and not putting forth your two-bobs worth is another thing entirely.

To be involved means you expect conflict. Not everybody agrees. D'uh! But sometimes the result can be sublime.

But to not be involved? To sit on the side and just "lurk"?

Believe it or not, you are just wasting energy.

Speaking from experience, I know what a "dead bar" is like.

Let's not let Factacular become a dead bar.

You didn't get the point at all. It's not surprising, really. You're already talking to yourself in most of the forum posts, keep it up and soon enough you'll only be playing trivia games with yourself too. Good luck.

LOL....I was ALWAYS talking to myself in my forum posts! What? Did you just wake up to that?

When others responded, that was a surprise and not the expected outcome.

My POINT was to cause others to talk and discuss. There are only so many subjects you can come up with before it seems whacky.

There is a reason why Factacular has a "General Discussion" area. And a reason why Factacular imposes no restrictions on it (apart from normal Terms & Conditions). Factacular could have, but it didn't. Because of that, we can discuss whatever we like.

I am not embarrassed when members don't reply to my threads. As a matter of fact, it makes me want to create more.

The point being if some member says "If he can do it, I can do it", then I have achieved my objective.

As for "likes"? Well, there is a story there. The point being, don't take "likes" at face value.

It's called "Twitter" isn't it?

We might not have the 140 character limitation, but I don't see what the difference is.
