Probably I shouldn't reply at all to people who are either insulting, lying or twisting things, proving that they are not capable of participating in a discussion nor having any manners. But since there are quite some other readers interested in the facts, here we go.
Of course I read your entire post.You state that you were going to accept the team. What changed after that point other than the presentation of a name that you didn't like?
I did also made it very clear to houtx that he should talk to his team mates, particularly NIHILIST, and try to solve the nickname issue. He promised to do so.
He sent the mail at the almost latest possible time, Sunday July 18th 23:26. There was no single word about the problems I urged him earlier to solve, not even about his failure in case he tried. The only thing I found was the request of changing the team name to something that has nothing to do with backgammon nor a friendly competition and makes no sense at all, if it's not intended as a provocation.
So, my decision of disallowing your team comes from all the things together. That mail just hit it off. I didn't see any hint of cooperation, despite my chats with houtx. If you want to play it shouldn't be me who is after you to provide the registration data, sorts out your problems and so on. And if you don't have any sense of fair-play, well, real shame.
I'll spare myself to quote the crap NIHILIST posted. Apart from his incompetence (it's absolute nonsense to compare a money tournament with a FibsLeagammon event) and ignorance (if he sees no benefit in playing in team league, why did he apply?) he's shown and proven once again another reason for disallowing him.
It's interesting that right extremists like neonazis are the very first to blame others of being that.
The next post is the best of it all. It's absolutely hilarious that don appeared in this thread! ROFLMAO :LOOOL:
the simple fact is you insulted tryout - deliberately. What insult?
Insult or not - I used another expression - you can try twisting yourself and claiming that you never thought of anything bad. If this team name is no provocation, what then? And what has it to do with team league?
Certainly, NOBODY, including tryout or diane has bothered to inquire as to the intended interpretation of the chosen name.
Among other things there wasn't any time for this. And you nor houtx obviously didn't supply an explanation with the request.
BTW, why would I apologize when we were the only ones wronged? tryout could have asked if any offense was meant. I guess he's psychic though.
ROFL. OMG: "the only ones wronged" I feel soo much sympathy! And if calling someone psychic isn't finally an insult...
Even if you really don't understand why I didn't allow your team, then please take it as a man! If you like, as a man who has been wronged.
You appear like a sobbing little whining child.
