I thought Chris' "Answer" reply to Josh was funny, but I guess I have the advantage (rather, curse) of having worked with Chris long enough to know it wasn't just some mean spirited jab. I've known Josh long enough (longer than I've known Chris) to have assumed at the time that he set himself up for something like that on purpose. Bullshitting and carrying-on, man... I didn't view that as a flame, hopefully Josh didn't, either.
As a matter of fact, if I could do it without inadvertantly banning myself (AGAIN), I'd have changed Josh's status to "Rebelscum Cheerleader", and I've got a feeling Josh wouldn't have taken offense - while some people would misread it as just being mean and picking on the Rebelscum Apologist.
Where the split is, and where Cluepon's deserve to be passed out, is where alot of the people here who don't go as far back as the rest of us with this RS drama, don't really "get it" when we're doing running wild with inside jokes and references to bull**** years ago.
****, a month or so ago, one of the kids here said GNT was the only good Moderator over at Rebelscum. Doesn't that pretty much sum it up?
Anyway, I don't think I've ever come down on Josh about his being an apologist for RS, because I've pretty much accepted that Josh and I view things very differently. His way of looking at things comes off to me as a, "I don't care if anyone treats my friends like **** - so long as they don't treat me like ****" sort of way. It irritates the hell out of me, but only because it conflicts with alot of the things I know about him (that he's a nice guy, haha), but I can't do much about the fact that doesn't see things as what I think they are.
Regardless of what peoples' intentions have been when jabbing at Josh, he's still here and he's said it isn't phasing him in the least.
