You must really read the message before posting, Fielly. I don't like being dragged into these kinds of things or equally defending anyones actions other than situations where I was somehow directly involved in whatever act was in question. I think Cougar brings it up best when he says you continue to fail to ID yourself and merely my post was not defending any actions or denying any actions but rather my two cents on the logic that you used in your post. I don't like these little squabbles and quite frankly I have learned to only do garrison or other such events with people I trust. I believe that everyone has their bad days or makes their mistakes and perhaps one can choose to judge them on this one sole action. Basically, the point of my entire post before was more to answer to the logic of your post rather than defend/refute/whatever else you can interrupt it as.
Fielly basically in your response what you have done is something that is often used in arguments. Instead of responding to my challenge of logic you have merely diverted the subject to a personal attack. I would like, at the very least, a "reputable" response to what you think of my logic instead of a personal attack. In my eyes, one who goes for the personal attack admits defeat in the argument as they do not post logically, intelligent answers and starts a "words" war with the other poster. You can easily prove me wrong by posting a response to my logic. Again, as I have said, I do not like discussing scams and other such nonsense as I am one not to get involved in it unless I am directly involved in the situation.
Personally, all these "scam topics", are like the tabloids to me. Filled with garbage or something I don't care about. I don't believe anyone deserves to be dug into the ground and hated by all because of select people either, A. Making up a story or B. Because someone made the wrong choice. Blame it on socialist Canada but I believe we have all made mistakes and we all deserve to be judged not on one action but judged after much interaction and person to person experience (ie partying) A good example might be a situation where I'm having a bad day and I say ********** it all" and I, in the heat of the moment, do something irrational. Does that mean I am a bad person? No, I just made a single mistake and would, hopefully, regret sometime later if not immediately after the action. However, one who does this same action multiple times without regret truly does deserve some sort of backlash.
Fielly, I dobut very highly that some time in your real life or FFXI life you have made a choice that was not the best or that you regret later on. I know I have and if I had the chance I would apoligize and offer to make it up to the people I hurt. But, by the logic in your response post you are suggesting that a person who makes a SINGLE bad choice should be castrated. As the auto-translate function might say [No, thanks].
