All those things you read in Omonatheydidnt about me & 2OD.. I won't say its untrue. But clearly, they did lotsa omission of the words they uttered on their part. I don't see what's so wrong about me trying to protect my own forum, a forum hundreds of people put effort into. I emailed them on the 21st, fucking polite, asking them to remove ALL of our posts. But I mentioned, if they couldn't (cos obviously that would be fucking impossible and stupid to ask for .__.) I asked for the past 3 months
. I don't think it would be alot, since they source from kbites, as well as akp and 2pmonline.
So they replied me saying "We dont control the mind of our members and if some are stupid enough to blame you for the news then that's just laughable. Sure it might hurt but what do their opinions matter in the end?
So I then replied saying "No, I get this. Some are just simply uneducated enough to be aware that its not our site making things up. And I ain't gonna control the freedom of speech that your members should have.
" Clearly, I said SOME, specifically those who bash on 2OD, despite seeing there's sources credited. I never mentioned the whole of OMNTD
, so I don't get the hate? So I said I can control where my translations go, so to minimize the hate.
And this is what they replied me.
I'm sorry but do you realize what you just said? "What I can control though, is where my translations go. " This is actually an impossibility. You don't control the internet. You most definitely don't control OmonaTheyDidnt. Our/your members are not breaking the rules by sharing and properly sourcing. Simply that some people have made not nice comments isn't enough reason for us to yank the translations. "Clearly, they do not have the selfcensorship to not click on articles that they don't wish to read, so I'll do it for them." I'm sorry but how are you going to censor our members? You don't click the accept/reject button at omona. We were sympathetic to you until you started acting like the internet police.
The only people who will ultimatley decide what is posted at omona are the mods and the members.
-P.S You're welcome for the free publicity that 30,000 different viewers daily at omona brings to your forum when our (& your) members credit and share your translations.
I never started the whole 30k viewers issue, which they so clearly failed to mention.
No, you clearly got me wrong there. I said, I can control where my translations go, and I will try my best to do it. But if it still ends up at OMNTD, then there's really nothing I can do about it, right? I don't remember saying I will blow up a bitch if it still ends up there. Sure, they're not breaking the rules now, because they're allowed to take it out but once we decide and make a proper announcement that they can't take it out to OMNTD, then that would count as breaking the rules. "I'm sorry but how are you going to censor our members?" Censor in the sense that if they don't have the article to begin with, they won't be able to bash us or accuse us anyhow they'd like.
Look, we aren't singling out your community. You aren't aware of the other communities we've approached, so its pretty unfair to make a judgement, no? And we aren't out here to create bad blood. We wanted to settle this amicably, and up till last night when I saw the post announcement on your community, I was about to suggest a different approach towards this ban.
It's still up to you whether you'd like to negotiate this for a slightly different ban, or a total ban of my articles on your site. Like I said, I can pass on my rules, but if someone refuses to listen, then there's nothing I can do, right?
Oh, by the way.. Congrats on getting 30,000 different viewers on your community because of our translations.
I was waiting for a reply. I was going to suggest that normal articles could still be posted, but controversial ones like boycott and Jay's comeback issues shouldn't be. But nope, they didn't reply and went ahead to make an announcement.
I'm not going to post up an announcement at 2OD because clearly this was an issue between me (cos I emailed them) and the community. I hope people seriously don't think 2OD as creating trouble, so the first email I sent was short, non-personal and straight to the point.
1. We clearly don't get the 30k free publicity, because not all members on OMNTD are 2AM/2PM fans, so the statement they send me isn't legit. And it's the same for the statement I replied. I don't, for once, fucking believe in the fact that 2OD's translations alone, can bring in 30k viewers for them - it's just being in the same tone she used against me.
Dude, I like OMNTD. I read their comments all the time, I save their macros cos they're a bunch of fucking hilarious people. Fuck, I'm even a member there. It's not like I have this undying hatred for them. All I want to do is protect the reputation (or what's left of it, clearly) and the feelings of my members.
IDGI ugh. Screened comments.
