2014-10-09 [The Black Goat]: Its easy to spot her supporters for sure, too bad they are all from the same group :)

2014-10-09 [Sunrose]: Shut up Mort :P

Oh grow up Nox.

2014-10-09 [Mortified Penguin]: I just wanna be vice mayor. ;-;

2014-10-09 [Sunrose]: Then stop trolling!

2014-10-09 [Mortified Penguin]: And build a glorious Mort statue on Mainstreet.


2014-10-09 [The Black Goat]: Hey, I wasn't the one who thought I'd be cute and post underhanded comments on the lit judge code page.

But favoritism is favoritism, and no matter how many friends she has on the council, the rest of ET hates her XD

2014-10-09 [Mortified Penguin]: Oscar Wilde once said, "It isn't trolling if they're right! So Mort is totally not a troll, just a misunderstood wood elf."

He was truly a wise man. *earnestly eats a cucumber sandwich*

2014-10-09 [Nioniel]: Nox, you seem like a real peach and everything, but, y'know, I think it's really great that you speak for the rest of ET. All this time I was wondering how literally everyone outside of the crew feels about Sivie (and various other things), so it's nice to not have to wonder anymore, now that you've stated it so clearly.

That kind of comment is cruel and hurtful, and genuinely unnecessary. Maybe mean people like you are the ones driving others away with comments like that?

2014-10-09 [Mortified Penguin]: Comments can't drive, silly, they don't even have licenses.

2014-10-09 [The Black Goat]: I tend not to be mean to people who haven't already taken a shot at me, and those people usually tend to be assholes to begin with, but nice try.

Maybe I'd feel bad if I had just started this up out of no where, just for the hell of it, but seeing as how Silverfire decided to insult me (albeit beneath the radar instead of outright) and no one seemed to mind then, I don't think I'll lose any sleep over it.

2014-10-09 [Nioniel]: Aw, thanks, I tried really hard. But you are obviously right about everything and no one else gets to have an opinion that doesn't agree with yours, so I guess there's no point in trying to have a conversation with you.

2014-10-09 [The Black Goat]: That's exactly what talking to her is like, yes.

Spot on.

2014-10-09 [Sunrose]: She made comments on that wiki over a month ago referring to particular parts of the discussion on the haiku contest that seemed to form the biggest issues. She didn't bring them up to take a stab at you because you were one of the people involved, she brought them up to illustrate why she thought there's a need for a different approach.
You already spoke your mind about it on that wiki.
As you said you don't believe whether or not we have discussed amongst ourselves our own part in the turn of events. So it has no use in commenting on your accusation.

I don't understand what is so funny about hatred and why you would want to spend your free time hating on someone on a website with only 300 people. We're not in kindergarten anymore.

2014-10-09 [Mortified Penguin]: HEY, STOP IGNORING MY HILARIOUS QUIPS, YOU GUYS!

*breaks down and cries on his desk in the corner of the classroom, because he's grumpy that he forgot his snack pudding and has to take a nap, even though he doesn't want to*

2014-10-09 [The Black Goat]: "And frankly, when you've got people who can't count syllables and have serious trouble identifying metaphors, I think it's reaaaaally important that those discussions take place."

This was posted today (last night? I'm deployed so my time zone is way off) and was an obvious jab at me referring to the more intense debates we had. That is what set this off, before that I didn't have much of a problem with Silverfire, other than that I never wanted to judge a lit contest with her in it ever again.

2014-10-09 [Mortified Penguin]: Yesterday, technically, according to Elftown time.

2014-10-09 [Sunrose]: Gah sorry, I read the date wrong..I read '8th of August' brain read it the Dutch way >_<
Why do you assume it was a 'jab' at you though? Especially since you never had a problem with her before that..

2014-10-10 [Sagacious Turkey]: Ew, the Dutch way. *shivers*

2014-10-12 [Doormat]: Mort - "I hope senpai will notice me"

ps I sniffed the drama all the way to here. The ride never ends!

2014-10-15 [Lakayana]: Just wondering when this will end. Must all elfs get to know that there's a problem in the council? Now quarrels and loud arguments are been noticed in almost every spot around town. Maybe I'll end separating a fight one of this days

2014-10-23 [Sagacious Turkey]: Except Bob's Diner. It's the only completely drama free wiki on Elftown. It's like a peaceful utopia where everyone can have fun and enjoy themselves!

Except minorities.
