This post is in response to Nicklab. My apologies in advance to the Chris and the staff of Jedi Defender. I really want this issue to be put to rest, but when someone attacks my character and personal integrity, I feel it is in my right to respond in kind. Please feel free to edit or delete this post per your rules and guidelines
Nicklab, your post points out exactly what the drawbacks are of an internet based discussion board. You can post behind a veil of anonymity and feel that you can slander someone’s name at your leisure. If you criticize Galactic Hunter --- the quality or lack thereof of its content --- it is within your rights and opinion. But to slander me personally in this manner is wholly inappropriate, given the fact that the only basis you have is that I “hang around” another webmaster.
I want to make one thing clear. I’m not in this endeavor to play politics of who or whom I should or shouldn’t “hang out” with. I’m here to run a site to the best of my abilities and have fun at the same time. To attack someone’s integrity in this manner is both childish, petty, and constitutes slander. Please reconsider your post or back it up with something solid other than heresay. Otherwise, I ask that you retract it.
The bottom line is this. I spend a couple of hours a day working on the site to make sure that our readers have something to check out each and every day. I spend more money on this site than what the sponsors pay, thus I always end up at a loss. This I do because of the hobby, the community, and promoting both. Late nights taking and editing photos, posting news, and traveling across the country with added expense just to make sure the readership is informed and updated is a fool’s errand for many. But believe it or not, creating something, which people visit and enjoy on a daily basis, is a great return on this investment. From CollectStarWars, to Rebelscum, and now to Galactic Hunter, my record speaks for itself. Judge me by this, and not attack my personal integrity.
Finally, despite my differences with Jimmy, at least he has “hung out” with me in the past and knows a little about me, for good or bad. But you Nicklab, do not know me, nor I you. If you did know me, I doubt you would post such an attack.
I would appreciate you retracting that comment and get back to discussing the toys. We can, of course, take this off the forums via email if you need to clear anything up about me, the site, and your problems with us.
