    brizzie has always been completely honest in these forums and everywhere else that I'm aware of. Your judgment of him is way off. And yes, the irony really stands out in this case. ;)

    But it would be more of a sad confirmation. I hope brizzie's absence is short.

    So did you quit or were you forced to quit? Since you are talking about irony, do you mean that you are honest and didn't agree with DMOZ corruption and that is the reason for your resignation?

    Some loaded questions there gworld. You aren't king of the trolls for nothing are you?

    No, I wasn't forced to quit. As for the reasons, I left a goodbye note for my former editor colleagues and it would be improper of me to share what is effectively private correspondence. But to save you speculating wildly (which I am sure you will do anyway) the irony and the resignation (retirement is so much nicer a term I think though) were not connected.

    You know what, you might become worth acknowledging once your posts become longer than your signature link :rolleyes:

    Sad to hear this. I am an incurable optimist and I just imagined that for some unexplainable reason, you decided to have a conscious and fight the corruption in DMOZ and that was the reason for your retirement.
    If you were not forced out and your retirement was not because of the corruption, was it because you had already listed all your sites and there was no reason for you to continue? ;)

    LOL, gworld you are just tooo much! The last editing action I did was actually to delist a site I had a connection with.

    Seriously though, as an editor I spent time investigating corruption within, as do most experienced editors. DMOZ is mighty tempting to those who would pervert it and it is the vigilence of the vast majority of editors who keep it isolated and under control. I've played my part in the removal of several editors abusing their positions and I'm proud of that achievement.

    you do not get it at all, I am not looking for any acknowledgment especially from your side, you seem concerned about the length of my posts, so what. Anybody is invited to have a look at the lenght of yours within the last 24hours.
    Seems you are suffering from some heavy complex:D

    Are you stupid :confused: You have yet to add anything of value to this forum. I see 150 one liners trying to get your signature link in without saying anything good or bad, just butting in without saying one thing. Not providing resources, tools, news, nothing. Just self serving garbage. If you stopped posting tomorrow, no one would even notice. What a moron you are lmao

    So go back to your little one liners. Make a comment or 2 sucking up to Minstrel and whoever else's tailcoats you're riding on.

    To Minstrel:

    1) I really appreciate the fact that you were sensitive to my disability. Thank you. I did respect your understanding there in that context.

    2) You however, did accuse me of relaying 'canned replies', you did tell me on more than one ocassion to 'bugger off back to RZ' and you did tell me that I had left a thread because I was 'stupid and irrelevant'. I've resorted to none of these sort of personal attacks. I've never told anyone to go elsewhere, or call them names and I think I've tried to take each thread seriously, which really, is why I made the effort to reply.

    I have no doubt if I'd registered as a member on your forum and said that I had been treated thus either in real life or online I would have been advised to confront the person responsible and make it clear I would not accept being spoken to in such a manner. I'm simply doing so off my own back.

    As a newbie here, like I said, I know respect has to be earned, but we all know that no-one can go about gaining that respect when they are constantly belittled and questions they've asked ignored or constantly dismissed as utter nonsense. It's just not possible.

    Now for me it's time to let this go, I've made my feelings quite clear and said my piece. I will be back ! But until then...

    I wish every one here at DP, a very Happy christmas, and hopefully a VERY prosperous New Year to you all. Much love, Shygirl xxx

    (Yes even you Gworld, peace ! ).

    This from the little worm who has made a career of riding off people's coattails and sponging off and exploiting strangers and friends alike. Outside of General Chat, care to guess how many of Toots' posts appear in threads where Shawn (usually) or someone else he is trying to impress have already posted?

    So do I. With brizzie gone and Alucard gone, Annie may be the only editor left in here who isn't insane or drunk :eek:

    I'm not asking anyone to take my word. Check it yourself.

    And next time you embarass yourself so badly you need yet another name change, Toots, think about "Sycophant"... that one I'm sure will be a lot more appropriate and accurate than Blogmaster :rolleyes:

    Change my name why? Stop halluzinating, Minnie and keep on ranting about DMOZ like some lunatic. The only true embarrassment on this forum is you. No name change would ever solve your problems.
