Presumably because of a complaint from one of the users/uploaders, some of the topics in the SXC general chat forum have been locked with something like
"As this has long deviated from the original intent:
it is being closed."
Remind me, someone, just what harm these threads were doing. I'm afraid it's slipped my mind.
One thing I will say is that rsylvan is lying when he says we were posting out of a temper tantrum. Nothing could be further from the truth. He really is twisting things by saying that. I used to love the banter. Maybe it was Jimbo who was angry. Or mikey? He's shifty.
...so we won't mention the toxic soup or the pointy stick. Oh no...
Dez, there's a victim...errrrrr...enquiring person here who is interested in your soup...
No thanks, Dez soups are well known... No mention for a toxic ingredient she wanted to use with a rare lock smith taste
You people are supposed to be my friends. *sigh*
"You people are supposed to be my friends. *sigh*"
Ask yourself - 'Would I like these for enemies?' I know I wouldn't.
Dez, I don't think it's fair to say I'm always mean to you. I was nice once - I've still got the scars to prove it.
Don't exaggerate, Jim. You were out of intensive care in under a week.
Yeah Dezzie, but i think Jimmy iz on about the deep mental scars you've left him with,,,...
Yes, well, I wondered about a grown man in a pirate suit. I hear he wears a dress elsewhere. I don't remember scarring him mentally. He usually puts his arms up to protect his head.
I have been forced to contact sxc again, as they have ignored my emails. It has been a while since I wrote to them about their paid staff's behaviour, and their breach of my copyright. They haven't had the courtesy to respond. Most shysters behave in the same way.
Don't expect an answer this decade. They are very busy handling complaints during their coffee breaks.
If they still don't answer in a reasonable amount of time, send them a jar of your soup. Make sure the lid is tight so it doesn't leak and cause the postal service to shut down or evacuate.
If the pointed remarks produce no response, try a pointed stick.
It works with me!
Rubbish. My soup is delicious. My pointed stick has you begging for more, Jim. No wonder a girl gets a bad reputation...
Someone needs to set rsylvan straight on redistribution of images from a blog.
Done. Dave got there first.
Looks like arsy is at a loss for words.
The only forum entry on sxc for 13 Mar 2010: Eza1992
"...It's interesting that in Finnish image banks customers buy my images for example 50 euros (in Finland customers have very high quality demands), but here in free-of-charge SXC they are rejected because of quality problems.
I think I'll remove my images in SXC and upload them to rgbstock."
You are welcome to join us Eza1992. We look forward to seeing you here.
Another first for SXC. On the forum menu page we have General Chat without an orange "NEW" banner next to it. The main forum looks like a ghost town now. Anything goes should be changed to "everyone's gone".
..chuckle...good one Lynne.
