Kerodin has requested that those of that are silent show support in a post. I am NOT involved in any of the Citadel proceedings, have never attended a PATCON and lately have not been in contact with anyone in the community. No comments, no emails and no discussions period.
I linked Sipsey a year or so ago after visiting and reading a few articles that I agreed with. I almost never visit now. However after Kerodin's request I went there to see what all the hoopla was about and yes I even went to the comments (Is everyone there anonymous?). Why? The III sites are not filled with these in the comments. Yes there are a few but they tend to be respectful. I will not comment at Sipsey as it will surely lead to an attack on my opinions at some point so why bother.
I have purchased III gear, posted III links on this blog and occasionally had conversations with a few of you. The III have let me be and never personally requested anything from me being content that I promote what little I can on my own.
I have watched Bill's rants and checked his links not putting everything together fully on just who he was railing against. The man does his research though a little rough for my tastes. I have no dog in this brew-ha. With this exception I have found that all of the three respect each other to some degree and do not spew forth the attacks that you find at Sipsey. This tells me much in itself not knowing the details or the individuals personally.
What I will say is that I am happy with my three gear was treated well by just about everyone with III on their sites. I think that James Wesley, Rawles did not do his due diligence before posting and I support the III as I can on my own. Am I going to the redoubt? No but I support those that choose that path as it was a free country for us to choose what is best for us as individuals.
I am posting this as a show of support, not because of any personal request, to Kerodin and the many in the III community. Even thought silent we who consider ourselves part of the III are waiting and watching. We will support as we are able in the coming storm.
