    :friends: I agree LOG.. you did a great job.. you put a lot of time and effort into making the game what it was and it was a lot of fun. Like I said to you the other night.. the best part was getting to know people better and having some fun. I really got to know my teammates better and people that I didn't really know at the start.. like Gunz, PA, SoCal.. you guys were awesome. And I was sorry to see how things got personal and arguments started over the whole thing.. it was just a game.. and just for fun.. it should have been fun.. I hope those in conflict have resolved a few things.. because in the end.. is it really worth it? Losing friends over a silly..errr great game.. .. I don't think so.. and I know at one point I told the SB on our board.. that if we ever got to the point where we were arguing as the Hotties were.. then I would have voted myself off..

    like i said on a different thread...anytime i can make over 10,000 zbs and not play is a good time for me!!




    For all the education and practice each of us undergoes, the achievment of mastery is ultimately the outcome of a personal quest for understanding.

    I thought when the game was presented to people the TOS violations were clearly going to be fair game. I can honestly say a lot of the comments I made that were TOS violations weren't at all because I was upset and just ripping into people. Sometimes I can get a little carried away I will admit that. But when that italics challenge was being played out I just couldn't help myself but react the way I did to some things the opportunities were too good to pass up and I assure you I was LMAO the whole way. The MBA program I went through was like two years of this Survivor game in a lot of ways and I know some of the tricks and crap people pull to get others on a team lined up behind them when things are so cut-throat. I did call Jaded a bitch in one of those threads a couple times and she way over-reacted to it. For one thing, the timing on the thread I thought it was completely hillarios and one of the best ones I have ever dropped on the boards and I am a wise ass jokester. I certainly would have explained all this to Jaded and apologized to her but I was a little ire'd she couldn't own up to the fact that some of the things that were being said were true. Basically, my concerns and comments were firmly based in things that were really happening. Jaded seems to think that because she was along for the ride that absolves her of all responsibility and it doesn't. I went after her so strongly because she was the most vocal communicator of that little group and I wanted to shake them all loose. Unfortunately, it ended up back-firing and killing the Hotties because I was so vocal Clump started to call me into question then he waged a war against me for something I didn't do and ended up quitting which killed the voting lead we had. As far as the bitch comments go, I guess people don't recognize a play on words like that so easily. The other team was the bitches weren't they? Anyone working against the Hotties was a bitch.

    That's the thread I was talking about. This challenge started right after I called Jaded and her co-horts out about the voting alliance. I think the funniest thing about it is I actually threw her a comment and all she saw was I was calling her a bitch...LMAO.

    Sorry Jaded. You are just too easy for this type of game.

    Well, I know one thing. I'm not playing next time. I wasn't in it long, but the way the Hotties self destructed is not something I would want to be part of again. Plus the fact that the challenges took part at all different times of day was difficult. I have a regular 40-hr week job, I'm in the Blue Coat organization, I'm also involved in two commitees for a group here called CNY Sparc plus I'm on the Events Commitee at the Syracuse Chamber Of Commerce. I really don't have the time to devout as much as some others that were in the game. And some people saw that as a weakness.

    Jack, it was a serious weakness. Some of the challenges were structured such that everyone's participation was mandatory. We did not make up the rules but the people in the game could not help but see someone who could not be online as a potential hurdle to winning a challenge. I still don't understand why this is so unreasonable to some people or why you would think that the fact that you have more in your life means people in a stupid game like this should carry you.

    I also don't think we self destructed as much as people think just because there was some strife. We were very close to winning this thing and we would have won if it was fair and we weren't placed at so much of a disadvantage. Unfortunatelly, someone that isn't even playing the game sabotaged us (or it was clump and LOG) and pinned it on me which wasn't enough of a challege because I had been so vocal. LOG said he was manipulating the game so someone couldn't get too far out in front. What he didn't account for in his plans to screw us over was Clump rising up and winning a challenge all by himself--a challenge we did not have any other chance to win. We were in the drivers seat at that point. But Clump did not want any of the Hotties to win so he screwed us over in the end. I don't really know what happened all I know is I had nothing to do with it but people pin it on me because I am outspoken.

    I'm not whining at all. I'm stating facts. That is a lot different than whining.

    The way I see it, reading those forums- while joking or not with the attacks on J7, you drew a bullseye on your back from the start.

    No worries, Typ0. I know I was vocal, but it's actually a good thing. I'm finally learning to stick up for myself. And yes, I know I can take things too personally at times, but I hate being attacked when it's unwarranted. I wasn't some evil mastermind behind some grand scheme. I was honestly trying to work as a team and kick some butt. It's a shame we fell apart, because I think we had the stronger team. We just weren't as unified as the Bitches.

    You live and you learn. At least now I know who's true to their word and trustworthy and who isn't. It was an eye opener for me.


    There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned
    Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched
    The only answer I found for all this hurt
    Is there ain't not answer here on earth

    Jaded, I never actually thought you were the instigator. I only knew something was up and logic tells me you would be a main artery of support because you are good about communicating with everyone. My real intention was to flush out the real culprit and leave them vulnerable and unsuspecting. There were several people who figured out who that person was by the way they were posting. It was so obvious anyone who could read could see who was trying to cover something up so in that sense it worked very well. Sorry you had to be exploited like that.

    I think I said that somewhere in my posts on this thread. I never wanted to win anyway I just wanted to have some fun. I did want a hottie to win though that was important to me.

    @Gunzlingr. Yeah, I think we were all a bit obsessed with the game. I know I would rush home and make sure I was online for the challenges and around during the day. I swear, I did more work on Survivor than I did at my job during that first week! And poor Patrick was sneaking out of the house roaming the streets looking for a computer. lol I called Ticat on night around 7pm and told him to go back to his work so he could log on and do a challenge. The poor guy. It was cold and snowing and he wasn't in the mood to go back out since he was settled in, but he did! :) I kept a list of phone numbers of all the Hotties with me at all times in case I had to contact one of them ASAP. I had a ball too! :)
