evo needs his own slot man. lmao im saying lets add a 10min part just for him in the next agenda lol
That's fine as long as it stays off the Podcast if he's going to go into a cussing rant again. I was only doing my job as a preservative and told him to calm it with the cussing to respect Narde's wishes of us keeping the language toned down in front of micah100 who was 13, and then he proceeded to tell me that's "unrealistic" and went overboard with the cussing just for effect (at which point I said something pretty cutthroat and not worth repeating before leaving the meeting and grabbing a smoke, but suffice it to say I apologize that was a bit off-color on my part). No, it's not unrealistic to be professional and show some reserve, I would frankly be mortified if someone from the Home staff or another guest were there, and if your objective is to be taken seriously by a major corporation like Sony or anyone viewing the Podcasts then these things HAVE to be taken into account.
But... I also realize as I'm finding it that basically this preservative position gives you no empowerment at all to actually be able to keep order. Let's face it, if the tables were turned and said "hey you need to stop cussing there's a 13y/o here, let's be honest here, I probably would have replied back with "O-F***IN-RLY?!?! WELL F***ITY F*** SH**BALLS...", so I'm not taking it personally. Plus you know, that's up to Narde to say something further about it if he wants to, that's his business not mine, and I assume he wouldn't.
Like I said, I would have probably done the same and I'm not trying to rake Evo over the coals, nor do I have any beef with him it's water under the bridge as far as I'm concerned. Besides which, the whole topic of Console Wars was flamebait waiting to happen. I'm simply saying that if we're on a Podcast, and if we're trying to get folks like TedTheDog and Locust or whoever involved, and also if we're trying not to give ProphesuckElite and his band of sycophantic lackeys *THE FUEL TO SUMMARILY BEAT US TO DEATH*, or if someone specifically requests us not to swear as Narde did tonight, then we've simply gotta be mindful of how we're presenting ourselves and respectful to others, end of story. Everyone's going to slip once in a while and swear sure that's a fact of life we're all human, but we didn't have a profanity filter put on these forums for no reason, and I have to assume the same professionalism is intended for when we speak at these meetings publicly ESPECIALLY when anyone outside can scrutinize us over a Podcast (although I don't know that there was actually one tonight, but in any case like I said if someone asks us to watch the language please be respectful and do so).
(I obviously didn't want to go posting this on the official forums but I still feel like this needed to be said so I'm addressing it privately here since you have to be a member to read the off-topic)
