Just because I didn't post it in the thread doesn't mean I didn't have a response to it. Yes, I took it personally, as did Adam. It wasn't just the video that bothered me, but I'm not going to bawww all about it in the thread. MCHY already said he didn't mean it that way, Code and a mod/judge addressed it, there's nothing else to be said. If anyone wants to chitchat about it, you can send me a PM.
Here is the comment that I left for that video.
To better explain:
The first time I watched this, I didn't understand any of the Mikiru parts, and I was wondering why they were there. And the part about Ileia being a "tramp" seemed pointless, rude and bitter. But when I watched this video a second time, I finally got the joke and actually laughed. I just think that you could have made it a little more obvious that you were portraying Ileia as Mikiru being framed by Haruhi/ MeleeChampion.
At first, I felt that the video was offensive, because it went as far as to refer to you as a "tramp". I also felt that it was a bit tasteless to go after you simply because you were in the lead. But when I re-watched the video, I felt that the "tramp" comment was being directed at Mikiru (who was framed for having "scandalous relations" with the computer club president). I still believe that the video is a bit tasteless, but I don't feel that the editor had any ill intentions. In hindsight, we (the judges) could have handled the situation a little better. Sorry for not contacting you beforehand.
