I give up, anyway. How I ended up derailing this thread for a personl matter is certainly far much more obnoxious and obscene, for certain. I apologize.
Wait a second...You're not getting off that easy this time. I'm calling you out, you little passive-aggressive stalker. And this time, no half-hearted SEMO IM's to smooth things over...You started this in public, finish it in public. Otherwise, stick to IM's or the forum email if you have something directly to say to me or about me.
It's a matter of the degree to which one is samey. We normally have consistency in opinions and tastes, but I can't really think of a single member who posts the same thing to the same extent as him.
I'm well aware in Japanese, it's considered polite not to address someone directly. In this case, I have this to say:
Cedille, I am right here and I know exactly who you are talking about and so does everyone else on this forum that has at least one working brain cell (hint: this means everyone). You sound like a fool because everyone here knows who you're referring to. Deal with me directly if you have anything to say to or about me, otherwise quit wasting everyone's time. I personally don't mind a difference of opinion with anyone (and in Daniel's case, it's fun to debate over), but I have no respect for someone who has nothing to add to an argument and is merely vaguely commenting on the posting style of someone they can't even address directly.
I hope that wasn't too direct, Cedille.
What's worse, it's like ... he posts stuff to remind everyone how "bad" (modern) game music is (this is actually how he condemned people in Chudah's Corner)
Okay, I think the majority of modern VGM is trite, overdramatic, stale, rushed and downright bad (or is good and doesn't appeal to me) and I dislike or feel generally indifferent to many of the current composers on the scene...That's how I feel about the subject and if you don't like it, you should be skipping what I write about it. That's the basic recap.
But...really now Cedille, what is this nonsense about Chudahs Corner, a site I haven't had any affiliation with for close to 3 years (and when I left as a staff member, I didn't believe the current VGM scene was all that bad). No really, I have zero clue what this is about. Enlighten me and the rest of the world with this one.
and while his opinion is fine (or rather, I always find it to be interesting and reasonable), the way he presents it is not.
Okay, mommy, can I go out and play now?
Cedille's Post from Before wrote:
I however just found it quite samey, repetitive and stale how a specific member has been posting the same thing again and again and again and again and again and again in every major VGM-board over recent years. I even swear I could emulate everything he posted in this thread by copy-and-pasting a shitload of stuff he has posted if I had enough time. I know he still has a right to post whatever he wants, and I just have to skim or skip it, but I think it's quite ironic and a shame that the guy moans about how stagnated the VGM is now becomes by far the most stagnated poster, hence 'what it's worth'.
Okay, this is from before, but this is just childish and more than a little creepy, the more I think about it. You read my posts (and apparently have a better memory than I do, depending what this Chudahs Corner thing is about), you rile yourself up for years at a time apparently because apparently I repeat myself too much saying something you obviously disagree with and then you lay this garbage out, from out of nowhere. Honestly, get out of your little hole and deal with me and what I say directly, instead of holding up a clipboard and pretending you're giving me my yearly review. Otherwise, grow up because I'm not holding an honest opinion back on a topic I feel very strongly about, just because you're tired of reading it AND especially when it is 100% pertinent to a topic that was started by someone else and much of what I said was expanded on more than I planned because I was talking with someone else.
