# I guess I have to run the risk of legitimising the rumour by addressing it.
So I'll say it here: at no point did I try to drive Fiend off /board. I took the piss out of his hypocrisy, as I take the piss out of anyone's hypocrisy. If he took that personally, that's his problem.

I thought he was a bit of a cock sometimes, but most of the time I got on well with him. Pretty much like everyone else. I reckon there must have been other reasons for his leaving, but the only person who can say for sure is no longer here to do so.

# The thing is, this is the internets.
These things do happen sometime. A few years ago I saw a whole forum come apart at the seams over what started as a hilarious and stupid play-fight between three of the regulars when one of them suddenly decided it was a real fight and really went off on one. It didn't help that all three were the forum owners and hosted tons of stuff for the particular community it served.

It's a cliche I know, but a well-worn truth too; what is said in writing can so easily be misunderstood simply doesn't have any of the nuance of speech, nor the subliminal expressions we use when face-to-face. I just didn't think he was the type to flounce off completely, let alone when speaking to a board regular. I think you're right about the other reasons which we will never know.

# Absolutely.
The only part of that I'd beg to differ with is that you didn't think he was the type to flounce off completely; I always thought he was a flounce waiting to happen.

Still, I'm sorry he's gone, whatever the reasons are (and even more so if I'm part of it). He was a long-standing b3ta user, who contributed a lot to this site.

# Yeah, that's true. Emoticons don't always cut it, do they.
