I think somebody should take 5 minutes to browse the topics on the other site that are devoted to the degradation of GDC and certain members of this site, before trying to protect the integrity of an individual that has not even posted on this forum in 4 years. Maybe after reading some of the trash posted, we would try a little harder too keep the some of the already dwindling dedicated members of this site.
Personally I think dagger-politics suck and do not try to get involved, but the deletion of the damascus topic has taken a turn for the surreal and there is obviously more involved than us lemmings are aware of, unfortunately 90% of the membership are here to share an interest, lets not lose sight of that Eek.
