    Kelmo, I must admit something to you... For the longest time now i have had a great respect for you as a fellow moderator... I Am a moderator at a different site and i know it's difficulties... the baldness and everything you joked about in a previous post i laughed at because i could see exactly what you meant but speaking to you in game... and your reaction to me... made me lose a great deal of respect for you... I gave you my condolences on your real life situation and you inquired about mine... yet when i said it was a long story... and asked if you simply had time to lend me and ear so i could share it... your response quite bluntly "I don't have time for you" That was rude and uncalled for when simply all i was trying to do was make conversation with you, I realize you have your issues and all but that was really uncalled for... later after that event one person did lend me his ear... Tigerdyr i thank you for listening it's nice to know that some people still have the common decency and i am thankful that you at least are still a friend of mine... Hmm Another rant... Need to stop that My apologies... just wished to post a piece of my mind...

    Did it occur to you that he meant that literally, he didn't have time right then to stop and chat? Quite often I have to break off conversations in game because of an email or icq alerting me to trouble on the boards that I have to go deal with.

    I have known Kelmo for quite a long time and he has always been quite the gentleman and usually loves to chat with fellow players. I'm willing to bet Petra has got it right on this one. Keep in mind, too, that when things can often be misunderstood when communicating in text. The emotion or meaning often gets lost in translation.

    I have debated whether or not to respond, as I am obviously bias. But being so, I do know more of what is going on with him. Kelmo most likely should not have gone to that event at all, he was not emotionally up for it. He was/is black hearted about several issues that have nothing to do with you or any aspect of UO. I am going thru some **** too so I am very well aquainted with the feeling of not being able to handle any one else's problems right now. Even his, and I love him dearly. These issues come for us both at a time of year we are carrying a lot of old baggage about as well. It shouldn't matter, but it does. Quite accutely.

    I am glad you wrote this post becasue one thing I do know is that it is very rarely his intent to hurt anyone.

    Agreed. If Kelmo said he didn't have time, he meant it.

    Actually, he needs a good slap for being at the event at all with all that he has going on IRL. But I know he really is dedicated to seeing Siege grow and I'm sure thats why he felt he should be there.

    Phan -

    This is not the appropriate place to air your grievance with Kelmo. If you have a problem with the way someone acted towards you on a personal level, then you should send him a PM and state that.

    eh...don't be hard on him. He is hurting too. We do things in response to that sometimes. We all do.

    No offense intended... really... but come on! With everything going on in his life right now... which is horrible enough... and bound to bring him down... do you really, truly, honestly think that he needs to add your problems to it?

    I can totally understand being swamped with stress and buried with trouble... and the last thing you want to do is add someone elses to the mix. It just makes you feel worse.

    Having known he was having troubles enough... maybe you might have considered that and not tried to dump even more on him. He's superman yes... BUT.. everyone has their limits. That to me would have been showing that you respect him.

    That said.. I'm glad that you found someone to talk to... just don't be hard on Kelmo for not being able to be that person... for whatever reason.

    I used to think Kelmo was a good guy, until he sexually harassed me by offering to 'cross swords' on the forums. Now I think he's a great guy.

    As long as you never cross the streams, unless giant marshmallows are attacking.

    Edit: Or was that the other one? I dunno. If giant marshmallows are attacking, stream crossing may be of use, but explore all other options first.

    Where is Nurse Miss Maude, when we need her ?

    Dear OP I am sure having his home recently catch on fire, that Mr. Snuggie has fresh new weighty problems, of his own, or he had to go to moderate something, or someone, or other.

    That said, I been compared to this lil cartoon chr. below, sooooooooo ..... do not be offended by the toon, cuz it is just that some folks say or think that I 'am' Lucy, from the Peanuts cartoons. Anyhow..feel free to send me a PM, if ya wish or if ya just need someone to *listen* !

    Although I am old, so 'my time'...may be limited on this planet ! But I am still alive & breathing ... atm ! :)
