Purple Tinker (purpletinker)

  1. @abigpony Now tell me, who exactly told you this rumour that I was arrested?

  2. @bitshift @abigpony @mrdragon I suspect that the 'concerned parents' are just 'concern trolls'. Though they may be actual parents!

  3. Wot's this I hear about trouble among the site admins? What's going on hyar? @ceruleanspark, are you okay?

  4. @scribble He's shown himself to be neutral on bad days, nice on good days. Never evil.

  5. @toksyuryel Forgive him. He made a stupid mistake. He's moved on, and so should all of us. The server's still here. Let's enjoy it.

  6. @scribble Of course it was ridiculous, which is why I jumped in immediately to stop him. But don't confuse 'making a ridiculous mistake' for 'doing something evil'.

  7. @redenchilada I recall him saying he would shut it down. This would not have benefited him in the slightest. It would have damaged his reputation and caused a lot of upset people. I really don't see how you think he could have benefited from a shutdown of the service.

  8. @widget Sorry I didn't respond to this earlier. Anyways, no hard feelings, it's totally okay! :) I hope you enjoyed the con either way.

  9. @scribble Malice is genuinely wanting to do harm to innocents. Cabal's never malicious.

  10. @colfax I won't even get into how much BronyCon intellectual property I still control. BronyCon's still here. So's RBDN. Don't worry. As long as I draw breath and there's a community to fill these digital walls, RBDN will be around. If you want to get your jimmies rustled about someone in our community, I can point you at MUCH better targets for jimmy-rustling, people who have done things with actual malice for their own gain.

  11. @scribble I have seen Cabal overreact many times. But I've also seen how compassionate he is when I badly needed a friend. I've met him multiple times IRL. He's never struck me as evil at all. Idealistic, sometimes prone to knee-jerk reactions, but never malicious. He reminds me of myself at his age, actually.

  12. @thelastgherkin Chillax. Cabal overreacts sometimes, but he's a good pony.

  13. @abigpony That's a rather weak defence. And it still leaves you calling me a 'self-entitled bigot'. I dislike the religious right and those who wage war. If that makes me a 'bigot', then I will proudly don that mantle.

  14. @nerthos I am arrogant, and I am grumpy. But the brony community has never known a more stubborn ally.

    Thursday, 17-May-12 06:45:41 UTC from web in context
  15. @abigpony You also called me a self-entitled bigot, and stated how much you enjoyed a collection of pictures that, among other things, accuses me of molesting little girls.

  16. @crusader8 Did you try the VA group[s] listed on http://www.bronies.com/map/ ?

  17. @nerthos Tell me about it. I prefer the 'neurotic, but nurturing, Jewish mother' role in my interactions with the fandom lately. Watching a lot of egos run out of control. Not that I can't be an arrogant jerk myself, but I always saw myself primarily as a servant to the community. Let's just say that my first three BronyCons were *NOT* fun experiences. At all.

  18. @toksyuryel I still have admin powers, but as I'm no longer in charge I would only ever use them to stop a spammer. But if trolls are tolerated here, perhaps I will not assist in upgrading the software later, as I had planned on doing.

  19. @abigpony I'm sorry, I'm a bigot? Against whom am I bigoted?

  20. @comradeconventrix Things are going better.

  21. @rotation I don't think I would be able to make it anyways, unless my work situation changes.

  22. @ceruleanspark I can feel my eyes derping already.

  23. @comradebitshift I just nuked an earlier version of the post when I realised that it wouldn't let me insert carriage returns into my Wall-O-Texts.

  24. @pony I am the pony ghost in the pony machine.

  25. @pony I think I have a dirty mind. When you said 'I'd peg [@hakupony] as Obama', I pictured some girl wearing an Obama mask.... 'pegging' someone.

  27. @abigpony @comradeconventrix I know I've been down a LOT in the past few (6?) months. When I ran the con, I was always in 'go mode', overstressed, crabby, and often taken for granted ('oh, I'm going to the con, I can crash at your place, right?'). After I stepped down, I was being falsely accused of multiple heinous felonies, and none of the other 'famous bronies' stood up and said 'guys, this is wrong'. I felt abandoned. I'm working on improving my mood and outlook, but you don't recover overnight from experiences like this. I've always focused on doing what is right, not necessarily on being sweet. That's bit me in the butt. If you're grumpy, nobody will care how much awesome stuff you do. A great piece of wisdom that I've finally come to realise if 'if you're angry, nopony will care if you're right; if you're sweet, nopony will care if you're wrong.' I've always prioritised doing what is right, or what needs to be done-- often at the cost of my own mood, health and public image.

  28. @comradeconventrix And why's that?

    Wednesday, 16-May-12 16:17:37 UTC from web in context
  29. @abigpony 'People's', or 'one or two frighteningly obsessed trolls'? These things accuse me of being a thief and a paedophile.

  30. @abigpony Really? Which ones are true?
