    Hmm I wonder who would go and get a neutral positive obsidian fan and a tyranny steam key together.

    Yup, when they send for their reasonable, eloquent and learned it's when the Codexers duck & cover.

    I'm not privy to any discussions between staff. The original message was written by Infinitron, and Crooked Bee was also on the thread from the start. Bubbles was brought in a couple of messages later.

    Incidentally, the AoD thing came up on it (I didn't mention it in my first draft). Here's what I had to say about it:

    Ultimately I decided that it would be unfair to VD not to mention it at all, given the focus on C&C that both games have, so I added the nod to it. I attempted to formulate it as neutrally as I could, but clearly did not succeed. Had I been informed of the butthurt it caused, I would have been happy to remove the reference, but once the cat was out of the bag I figured it was too late. I don't like post-publication changes unless it is to correct clear factual errors, and then only with a note at the end about the change.

    You don't know the whole story, it's not hard to see there was a conflict between Infinitron and Bubbles but Infinitron is higher in the hierarchy ("Infinitron won't let me") so if Codex staff has to choose between the two they choose Infinitron.

    I don't think you'll be able to find a single staff member who'd like to see Bubbles go, while you can certainly find one or two who thinks this place would be better off without the 'tron. So yeah, you're pretty much an idiot, aren't you?

    Gotta set the record straight here (again): I did not know of any controversy about that statement before Bubbles leaked the review. Had he mentioned it to me, I would have been happy to rephrase it or drop it altogether; I was ambivalent about including it in the first place and do not consider it in any way central to the review.

    Edit: also, again: I was asked to review it, not the other way around, and Bubbles was on the PM thread about it. I went over it, and if Crooked Bee, Bubbles and Infinitron think it would help clear the air, I have no objections to publishing the whole thing. It was altogether dull and drama-free as such threads go.

    It not being central to the review is precisely why I didn't think it was worth going to the trouble of asking you to change it. I was just going to slightly alter it (to "pre-medieval-themed") and post the review. A mistake, maybe, but I wasn't expecting Bubbles to explode over it. Nobody was. It wasn't his review!

    That's what happens when people think the things they write here matter.
    If you don't like something in a review, you write your own, and if you don't have privileges to post in front page, YOU POST IT IN WHEREVER, you don't go trying to change other people's shit.
    Again, typical eurofag.

    The leak triggered my PTSD from the Pillars drama.

    I think the drama could have been avoided if any of the parties involved -- Bubbles, 'tron, Bee, or anyone else who was privy to it -- had told me about the controversy around that line.

    You fled with tears in your eyes but you won't really specify why. Now you're still here with your innocent lamb act while everyone else is wondering why Bubbles left.

    It might go a long way towards ending this conflict if you'd -- oh, I don't know -- maybe admit you had a little something to do with the stupidity all around?

    Bubbles is a fine poster and contributor. This is a needless ragequit over nothing though, so: meh.

    As far as I am concerned:
