      I apologize for the behavior of my fellow moderator. Your posts were somewhat off-topic and I believe the deletion was justified, but whether we share your beliefs or not should not matter in whether you get to post them or not. You should not have to worry about posts being deleted or you receiving an infraction for stating criticism towards vaccinations as long as they remain on-topic.

        I'm sorry that you had to apologize for him (and I don't think you should have had to apologize for vonFiedler's rude behavior. He should have done that himself, but I think he either didn't see it as rude, or thought I being being rude pain in the ass intentionally, for whatever reason), but I'm grateful for the gesture.

        I won't disagree with my posts getting off topic, and the deletion itself wasn't unjustified, and again, I apologize for that. It was never my intention to be a pain in the ass!

        And I'll try to avoid being laissez faire when it comes to letting things go off topic, especially that I now know how seriously it is treated.

      Frankly, I think it's rude and disrespectful on a forum that is probably half autist to spout this bullshit. "You shouldn't need to choose between autism and death" cause they're both just such fucking tragedies amirite?

      You were already in the wrong for derailing the thread hard AS YOU DO, repeatedly bringing it back up should be grounds for an infraction but I'll let it go if you will.

        Look, we're getting nowhere with this, and our relationship is just becoming more antagonistic, so I think it is best for me to respect your opinion, and you to respect mine, and just let it go once and for all.

        As for derailing the thread: did I start it? No. But did I have a role in it? Yes, I definitely won't deny that.

        I suggested three times that we just start a new thread rather than continuing to drag the current thread off topic.

        Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm guessing I should have taken charge and started a new thread for each subject, rather than continuing to derail the thread at hand. Especially since things kept on getting out of hand every time someone brought up a new argument point, and I felt a natural need to explain and defend my stance, and the same way I tried to defend my stance when you called it total bull.

        I hope you'll at least understand that, even though it was the wrong thing to do.

        Did I always want to get in the last word? Again, yes. Guilty as charged.

        And for that, all of that, I apologize, and will do better in the future to not let things get out of control.

        All I ask for in return is to not call things bullshit when I've taken some time to actually research them, because that is quite frankly hurtful, and comes off as arrogant, which I'm sure is unintentional, and to be fair, I probably came off as arrogant (and perhaps ignorant) to you all well. Nobody is infallible.

        And finally, I hope you won't stay mad at me. I'd prefer a friendly relationship, even though our opinions might strongly differ.

        Edit: I'm guessing it was the last teasing comment (which was supposed to be the comment that was supposed to end the subject. Then again, so was my response to you which you deleted) that might have had a role in getting you pissed off at me.

        It was done partially because being a friendly teaser is a defense mechanism of mine for coping with people who strongly disagree with me, tease me, call me names, or throw curse words my way.

        I just wanted to apologize if doing so in this case was part of the reason you got so mad at me.

        I booted back up my computer after shutting it down just to make sure that the air was cleared on that account!

        Agenda 21 gives countries Stalin-like control over its populations food.

        What, you mean like giving Monsanto the power to purchase/take over all the remaining organic food production we have access to buy, and force us to eat either GMO poison or starve, while the elites only have access to healthy organics?

        Then again, I guess I'd have to look up what control Stalin had over food production in the first place to fully understand.

        Edit: you must mean triggering a martial law event, and then nationalizing all food sources. Maybe this is also why some people see communism or socialism as a threat, rather than as potentially beneficial. And it does indeed show the WRONG way to implement it by the furthest extreme!

        I'm reading this right now:http://www.historyplace.com/worldhistory/genocide/stalin.htm

        This must be the closest thing to what Agenda 21 would look like if successfully implemented. But it would make armed insurrection inevitable.

        I'd almost feel sorry for any police or soldiers sent in to enforce it, especially in the South. Red necks are especially crazy!

      "preferably, there will be a non-conspiracy source of research to support the notion"

      Why? Why is this preferable? Why are you looking for confirmation for something you have no reason to think has any? Looking specifically for something's confirmation is the height of logical error.
      1. vonFiedler
        vonFiedler
        You say you're not a conspiracy theorist, but that's almost all you ever talk about, and I'm certain people aren't taking you seriously as a result. This is only personal advice, but I really think you shouldn't pepper your posts in serious threads with this stuff.
        May 9, 2016
      2. JES
        JES
        What I mean is that there will be some form of research or journalistic source to indicate validity, or some form of bread crumbs to follow, because if there is something I've learned about conspiracy theories, it's that it is like a puzzle, with clues and indications they might be more than just theories.

        And I think conspiracy theorists get such a bad rap.
        May 9, 2016
      3. JES
        JES
        And if you think I try to distance myself from conspiracy theories unless I have evidence on hand, then you're right.

        I don't want to come off as nuts, or worse: biased (I guess the fact I consider being biased worse than being crazy probably speaks somewhat about my character, hahaha).

        But yes, I don't disconsider conspiracy theories. Guilty as charged.

      I've thought a similar line of thought for Mega Ditto! Just give it an ability that when it Transforms, the base stats of the target are treated as if they were 20 higher (so a Mega Ditto Transforming into Mew, for example,would have the BST of 48/120/120/120/120/120).

      Just a word of advice, I seriously would not bother listing *anything* from wonder trade in your trading thread. People want to know the exact OT from where something has come from, so not only will you not get any offers, it also makes you look a little bit suss
      1. JES

        Yeah, I think I'll do that. I have a tendency to obey forum policies, even those I don't necessarily agree with 100%. I do always want to contribute in a positive manner, after all.

        That includes not listing shinies that are most certainly hacked.

      Hey, just wondering if you found anything you like?
      1. JES
        JES
        Oh yes, I even wrote a response in my thread to keep you appraised.
        Basically, it came down to this:
        I want Bellsprout, because I don't have on him in my 'Dex, nor have I ever breed a Victreebel set, but since he is shiny, I only have the right to request him, and you have every right to decline my request. I figured that you did mention that you were going to clone him, so I figured "why not?".

        My second (and I guess primary choice, since I'm not expecting you to okay the shiny Bellsprout) is a Simple Numel.
        I've already started using one in the Pokémon Showdown NU circuit, and she has actually given me pretty good results thus far, so I figure this would actually give me the excuse I need to focus on getting better results by trying to use other team members best complement her.

        Oh, and I offer rare berries to everyone I trade with: Liechi, Starf, Ganlon, Kee, Maranga, Apicot and Petaya.

        If you want any of those in particular, just tell me. In the meantime, the Shroomish is currently holding a Starf.

      Hey - just wanted to say that the analyses we write don't take into account in game restrictions and there's no point in saying that you cant get a defog salamence, we know its hard to do in game - but on PS you can have any legal move or ability combination. Feel free to contribute with suggestions to the analyses, but be sure to keep in-game stuff to the OI forums.

      2. JES

        Okay, I guess I can see how that would be annoying, but I don't see how the analyses can't be geared to both PS and in game, with notices for moves that can only be used in PS, and maybe substitutes for in-game use.

        I could easily breed you a Starly, which you can then keep, but I also have a level 51 Staraptor that I'll willing to loan.
        As for Smeargle, I've trained them all past 68, and even then, and he needs to stay at 74, since I'm going to use him to SR for Suicune next.
        I could still breed one for you. No guarantee that (s)he'll have 31 IVs in HP, Defense, and Special Defense, but I should at least be able to manage 0 IVs in Speed, which is what counts.

        I can start breeding now if you like.
