That is usually my approach and what I expected of others, but the way discussion progressed during this contest showed me that it's not how things operate around here anymore. People blurted out baseless negative comments which were offensive to all participants, yourself included, and were not held accountable. How do you combat an atmosphere of negativity in a forum? Making fun of those who cause it is one of the few effective measures. Mods on busy forums tend to avoid nebulous "judgment call" complaints, leaving the community to police itself in terms of what is and isn't socially acceptable. Certain posters on this board speak out against stupidity when they see it, and I see nothing more egregious in my posts than in a typical godix post.

In fact, my reply to Hinatasan was far milder and more explanatory than her posts. Did you note her repeated use of the word "horrible?" If you took offense because my reply included a critique of your logo, that is a separate issue. I hope also that the disagreement we had recently is not a factor here. I find it bizarre that you singled out my silly, deliberately pretentious jibe at her while she tosses out terms like "horrible." I get the impression that you are rebuking me for more than my posts here, and using this as an opportune way to express censure.

Also, please consider how counter-productive and irritating it is to call someone out as you did to me here, then advise them to confine their replies to private channels. If you truly wished to just douse the flames, your "suggestion" should have been sent privately to me, or to a moderator to handle the situation for you. You chose to state it publically, so I'm replying publically. However, I don't foresee anything productive coming out of continuing this discussion, so I will refrain from posting here further. Congratulations on your win.

leahzero, yea pick on the person who's English isn't exactly fluent... good job...

As for behaviors, would you treat a client the way you treated people on this thread?
Would you berate their intelligence and insult their being too? or is the difference the fact that a "real" client would be paying you...

Surprisingly you actually cost yourself at least one vote due to your behavior, cause I had a feeling the 3D one was yours and purposefully didn't vote for it because of that feeling...

Grats, DriftRoot!

I didn't vote your logo, but it's very nice and I hope to see many great banners and T-shirts with your logo on it! ;+)
