First and foremost, I don't think the fact that I'm a mod has/should have anything to do with it. I moderate the Mixed Groups/Clubs Section, which is in no way related to this, or any other of my works outside that forum.
Shroomish, as a moderator myself I understand your concerns and the perhaps vexing conscience to do your job in spite of (what I hope shall remain) a friendly relationship; however, contacting me and simply asking me politley to remove it from your section, or to tone down the graphicness of my content would have been a better initiative, as I would have complied to either without hesitation.
I do feel the need to express, though, that this was in no way an intentional assault on any subject, person, or idea. I stress this point again: I insulted no one's religion deliberately; and if one had taken offense to anything I said, I would apologize to that person(s) despite the fact that their opinion is not under my control.
As I'm sure you're aware, I employed intentionally bad grammar and blatant pointlessness -- this was all part of the comic readability of the story; you did not have to go out of your way and denounce its "faults" to prove your point.
Perhaps I went too far. The majority doesn't seem to think so. My opinion has no further say in this outcome; I have permission from Treecko to continue posting in the Mixed Writing Boards, with the addition of a warning label. But if this is going to cause more problems, I'll simply host my updates on an unrelated webpage, as with the archive file I have already linked to on this page... an action which I see you've tried to throw in my face, but also a statement that quite frankly has no substance in this matter (as, one might say, does your original argument). For it is completely the user's choice to click a hyperlink. To say that my "harmful" story was subjected to young children in the rather popularly uncouth assumption among individuals of "high morale" that they should not be subjected to in fear of detrimental effects, is inequitable as it was no way imposed upon them by myself or anyone else on these forums to my knowledge. (I'm not even going to mention the fact that I used absolutely no
real swear words in my story; anything of that nature was visually censored in at least one way, if not in its entirety)
...If you wish to address this matter to PE2K though, then I urge you to do so. If he were to determine an outcome that would be in everyone's best interest, I would most certainly act accordingly, and then maybe this thing would finally be settled. Your call.
And just to let you know, while I may disagree with your actions Shroomish, I wish for no hard feelings to remain between us; that would be simply fatuous, and in my opinion an undeserving feat for two members to ever to come across, mod or not...especially over an incident so trivial.
