JonJon, I've been told that such private communications about Tbot do not exist. Also, I've tried starting a new topic, AND provided proof and arguments for my points, with no replies nor requests for more information from Tbot directors. You are the first to reveal the private forums. Other directors have denied that these private forums exist.
The reason I'm posting about Tbot here is because I've attempted to communicate with TBot directors in other public and private fashions and received no satisfactory answers to my questions. For example, I've heard of some kind of vote that was taken, from TBot directors who were afraid to vote because they were afraid of getting on the wrong side of burper. (I heard this from a Tbot director who was afraid to vote against burper and lose priveleges, tho I had no clue where this vote was taken before now, nor what the arguments were.)
Right now, I'd like to know if PortWine's current campaign is approved by Tbot directors. Port had asked me to resume what he calls civility, and I'd agreed, when he started shouting/flaming me. I suppose I should never have agreed until he apologized for his previous behavior, but I was being nice.
Now, when I login, I get these messages (and PortWine wants me to leave him alone!).
From TourneyBot (Jun 17 20:55 PDT): You have been banned from Tourney #762, by the order of PortWine.
This is kinda funny when my "Last login: Friday, June 18 21:41 PDT from oneworld.owt.com", is over a day late and it's obvious Port is just making Tbot leave me these messages out of spite. (Just one example, BTW.) Or else Port is once again unaware of how to use an interface: First his GUI (and that caused a lot of problems); now TourneyBot.
I would say that, if a Tbot director wants me to leave them alone as far as Tbot is concerned, they shouldn't set me up for messages from Tbot when I login regarding tourneys I'm not even there to play. This is just PortWine using his Tbot priveleges to annoy me. I'm not annoyed, but I'm amused at such juvenile behavior. I'm also concerned to know if Port or other Tbot directors use their priveleges to flame or discriminate against OTHERs, via Tbot. And that's why I think discussions about Tbot should be public and not private...
PS -- thanks JonJon, for revealing the secret. I don't know why it IS a secret that there are TourneyBot communications about me I'm not privy to, I'm just surprised that anyone has bothered to deny it, and amazed that decisions have been made about me with no feedback from me. I suppose it's just a habit of mine, learned from the bottle of a a land that has free speach as a basic right, to resent thought police. In my country, we get to face our accusers.
