I asked him why, mind you most of his "critiques" I find to be more of complaining and just saying the same thing over and over again. Kind of like how you can't stand Ramyb doing the same thing over and over again. It's funny how you understand your view but are ignorant to others. You actually form somewhat intelligent critiques and have a very distinct opinion, almost everything he writes sounds like a parrot repeating pretty bird. I could ask you the same question I asked him, but you'll just give me the same cookie cut answer you always do.
Tell me this, why do you critique Ramyb? Same questions as my previous post. Don't try to fool anybody saying you want better designs for everybody and woot to be better all around. I see many things you do and say that make woot a worse place to be around, but I do give you credit, you have toned down a lot lately. MrWed has taken over your reign and seems to be even more vocal than you are.
You are not going to change anybody opinion, what you say may be true, but people will figure that out on their own. Or did somebody else tell you something so you just followed like a sheep? No you didn't, you have your own opinion which is very valid and nothing anybody would say to you will change your mind. But again, why critique somebody you have outright stated that you are obsessed with disliking him? Do you REALLY want Ramyb to be better so you will vote for him and buy his shirt? Do you really think he's going to change just because you tell him to? Do you guys really live in that much of an internet plastic bubble?
I feel that people learn. Yknow, if they have the brain capacity. This is what foreign people refer to as "education". It's an unorthodox approach, but I hear some people swear by it.
In "education," you do this thing called "teach". You give information and people receive it and analyze it. If they understand this information, they "learn". It's like a computer, but with more magic!
So when I critique Ramy, it is in part in hopes he will improve. Why not? Anyone has the potential, and if Ramy were to consistently prove that he respected the derby, had the ability to branch out, had ideas that didn't scrape the uncreative barrel, so on and soforth, that'd be great. 'Course, if he still won, it'd prove people vote for him and not his work, but that's neither here nor there.
But more importantly, it is in hopes of this new "education" thing. Sure, some people figure out the truth on their own, but others need to see it laid out. They need to be given access to the facts. They will then either analyze them for themselves, or ignore them. Remember, not every person follows derbies. They might eventually "get it". But if they see people saying it, they might start thinking about it, and get it sooner.
So a question, then, for you: If you are so sure that I am right, why are you so concerned about what I say? If you don't think people can learn and change, why do you bother your unintelligible rantings at people, since they're not going to learn and change? If these people can't learn and change, yet you keep harping on them, isn't it totally justifiable for others to keep harping on Ramy?
I guess that's a couple questions.
