Hello Titanium Fox,
I feel that while many of your points are "valid", I must agree with Gizmo on the one point that Optix was driving UGN Security
into the ground. I looked up to him while he helped me in my earlier linux days, but he soon began abusing his power.
As for IceDog, I also looked up to him until he gave himself the power to bitch about going to church and kicked me from irc when i started talking about my suicidal friend.
Both abused their powers, but had a lot to offer. It is truly too bad that they felt like they had the power to get away with what they did. I believe that almost everyone had some of the same issues as me.
So on that note, welcome back.
