And to add another suggestion, next year it would be wise to appoint a public relations expert dedicating to dealing with the fallout stemming from the inevitable future delays next Christmas. It may come across as somewhat arrogant on my part, @anime_andrew (perish the thought), but I would be willing to throw my own name into the hat, as it's likely I'll be here again, should I not find myself consumed by the sorrow of existence or have escaped from it. I would strive to help those not ignorant of Gankutsuou.I know nobody at AL wanted that, but seriously- never use that distributor/shipping thing ever again. People are mad, and it just sucks that what should be a happy and celebratory thing ends up a disappointment.
I actually laughed at the sheer randomness and absurdity of that thread, interspersed with @chaos (RIP?) genuinely at a loss over whether I'd somehow doxxed Retro. I guess there were times when it wasn't all trolling, back in the day. My memory is as awful as yours is clearly not, although your description of what I wrote does ring a bell. Was it not you that posted a picture relating to "bird-watching" at your local park?... I think it's coming back to me.This was the thread, you sent me Tokko you generous man you (and possibly Hell Girl, I can’t actually remember where I got that). Your mind’s clearly going - That, or I was never quite antagonistic enough to leave much of an impression. The letter was indeed poorly handwritten and I believe threatened either to dox me or for you to come to my house and do nefarious things now you knew where I lived, I would have expected nothing less. Happily I moved away a year later.
I'll stop derailing the thread now. I mean, it's dead until the post is a thing again, but still: the younger generation knows not of what we type, for they are blessed. Typing of...
Ah Luke, my naive young friend: compassion and weakness are as interchangeable as kindness and cruelty. You would show compassion to people that would not attempt to conform to your own nation's identity and religious beliefs and leave a homeless man starving so you can feed people that are more likely to look down on you, for Allah does not accept difference and people seeking money are not the same as people seeking salvation. Multiculturalism is a lie when humans have only ever subjugated, be it by war or law.We ain't importing the third world lol, Just trying to show a little compassion and understanding
Merry Christmas, btw.
