Zillah, why on earth would Johan show up here at any time besides when he felt compelled to it? Itís crystal clear that the general sentiment here is that nobody from TSR is welcome at any time whatsoever.


The TSR people maintain that they are the good guys, that they want the Sims community to be one big happy co-operating family, but their actions belie that. What do they contribute to the happy family? How often do they step up with goodwill gestures or peace offerings? If Johan or any of the rest of TSR truly cares so much about proving that they are decent, upstanding community oriented types, why don't they act like it and take part in the community? They only interact in ways that are engineered and controlled by TSR. They want to play, but only in their sandbox, under their rules. They don't turn up in any other sandbox unless they have an ulterior motive. I certainly don't expect them to come over here and be all buddy-buddy, but the occasional appearance in the spirit of communal equity and good faith gestures wouldn't be that painful if they are what they claim to be. If I thought someone hated me for something I didn't do, I'd want to resolve the situation, and not simply by denial, but by showing them the kind of person I really am.

Say what you want about him, when push comes to shove, Pescado steps up to the bat and does his best to render aid where necessary. No matter how much of a FOJ he comes off as, those actions tell me what kind of person he really is. When there's trouble, he helps while TSR finds ways to exploit the situation to their advantage. I came here because TSR drove me here. I believed the one big happy family Barney-isms they spouted, but whenever I encountered any level of authourity within the structure, from moderators all the way up to Steve, the were arrogant, condescending, censorious, dismissive and far more interested in self-promotion and preservation than actually resolving issues, solving problems or giving good service to their customers. These actions tell me what kind of organisation they really are.

I'd have a lot more faith in Johan's words if hid actions backed them up, or if I had ever seen him anywhere else (outside TSR) doing anything other than covering TSR's ass. Do we pelt him with rocks and garbage when he turns up here? Mostly not. A good bit of any conversation with him is reasonable, thoughtful debate. People have proven they are willing to listen to him - if he and his cronies were everything they claimed to be, he'd have no reason not to have at least attempted at some point to share some goodwill with the community. And if it is so clear that TSR et al are unwelcome here, and we'll only throw rotting vegetables at them if they do turn up, why send Johan at all? What possible reason could there be to send him into the lions den at all? Let's say he comes on his own. Why? Why bother? If he really is a good guy working with other good guys, why has never come here and acted like one? He maintains the appearance of someone who wants to co-operate, to 'prove' that Pes and the rest of us are wrong, but all we ever get from him is words - deflection words, disambiguation words, denial words. And then he disappears until the next time excuses are needed. Never does anything constructive, never contributes anything, never offers anything to promote goodwill amongst the community, peace on earth and all that. Just excuses and long silences.

Here's why I don't trust Johan - He only turns up when TSR/Thomas/Atwa has screwed the pooch on something. The he pops in to tell us why it couldn't possibly have been them and wasn't their fault. He never pops by to hang out and share a swig of rum. He never turns up to pass on any interesting or useful information that isn't propaganda, he never swings by to say "Hey - there's some question about the origin of this file/creator/hack job/whatever, can you help us out here, or vice versa. Nope, just here when it's time to say "WASN'T US, Nuh-uh, nohow!!!!"

okay Johan, you keep asking for information, for good faith gestures on our part, how about one from you? If you guys are all so innocent and squeaky clean, explain how and why Atwat keeps turning up in the middle of any drama about TSR.

Except Atwat's persistent return. Every time it's sworn she's gone, she comes back, gets revealed, and then refired and rehired under yet another username.  Really shows you have nothing to hide. I'm sure we'll believe you *this* time.  Roll Eyes
Yes she managed to sneak in again but we certainly did not rehire her.
bolding mine.

okay, then how does she keep getting in? Is the bathroom window not locked? Does she somehow psychically intuit the necessary codes, passwords and permissions to operate on a level above that of anonymous drone? Explain how, even though you attest she was not rehired, and is therefore, by implication in no way an official staff member or employee of TSR, and is, presumably acting entirely on her own accord, unsupported by the powers that be, she is clearly and repeatedly operating with information. access and priveledges that could only have come from a person or person at or near the top of the food chain @ TSR.

Is she batshit crazy - yes. Is she a paranoid, delusional stalker operating within the realm of an exaggerated fantasy relationship with Tom and god knows who else? certainly. Is she pulling all this access and permissions out of her ass. Nope. She's not sneaking in, someone keeps opening the door for her. Who and why? Because every time the shit gets stirred, Atwat wanders in with a spoon.

Hey, I'm on there! I feel speshul. It's got my full name, which is fairly common, and a user name and email I pretty much only use for things that might end up spamming me. I would like to state, for the record, that I do not own, nor do I have access to, a large boat. In fact, I've never been on a boat in my life, in spite of having once lived, literally, within spitting distance of Lake Erie.

It's a current quilting fabric pattern

I've used variants of it myself.

After I left my comment here, I pm'd Black Orchid @ MTS and left a comment on T$R that it was the same as another creator's lot at MTS - don't know if any of that made a difference, but I'm glad it's down - I mean, how blatant can you get - you've got about 6 really shitty lots then you suddenly turn up with something made of awesome and think no one's going to suspect? Dumbass.
10  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Re: Free Content Pwns Paysite Crap on: 2009 June 18, 09:20:56
Well, since all of the rest of his/her uploads are craptacular boxy houses, nothing even remotely like Black Orchid's amazing lots, I'd have to vote for blatant amd shameless theft.

Do you have a uni-brow and hairy, hairy knuckles?

Nope, that's the beauty of it - they'll never recognise me.

Oh I am sure that will be next. 

So, should we get together today and plan our next attack?  Since yaknow, we're such AW3SUM HAXX0RS and all. 

absolutely.  I think we are both ugly and stupid enough to do anything. Excuse me while I get my copy of Hacking for Dummies.

And I'll get my copy of "Getting involved in Some Way" for idiots. 

You didn't get yours free when you joined Minions Anonymous? You might want to check with your sponsor. You should also be getting the quarterly newsletter, Quick and Easy Evil Deeds for the Home and Family.

I am also creeped out by birds - something about the way they look at you. I don't trust them. I know they're just waiting for me to drop my guard.
