Dan and I are friends on some level since he and I both have some affiliation with FFURG and met up at C3... He's good guy and we like to think we acknowledge RS when they've got the word too. Like I've always said Anton, the whole JD/RS thing is less than some make it out to be... I think it mostly all has always revolved around their forums, and how it was a place we all once enjoyed but have now become a quagmire of rampant stupidity, and not just from the newbs. There's some longtime members there that are just as stupid in their behavior around those, and other boards. They also tend to be the ones making it out to be more too.
The beefs have been between some specific people though, not site vs. site really. Obviously though, I'd say 99.9% stemmed from the forums and how they've been run (and how long-term, good contributors to them were treated) since they were the good old BHC. Thus we have our own thing here... As far as news goes though, we're just like Scum and Galactic Hunter with our efforts here, and we tend to mention each other where it's due and not shared info.
