I think shady is a great idea for controling how well people play. But on the other hand "unsolvable" cases and human error can cause fauls acusations way to easy. I think shady should be changed for this reson. How you ask?

I think the cost should be lowered. I found myself not being able to do any cases for weeks having my agency back me on money till I could pay him off. All because of two cases were evry clue pointed to a certain person but the case said I was wrong. I spent so much money on bribes for those cases just to find out those bribes were worthless.??? Thats not right.

Also I think as your skill level incresis so should the amount of false acusations your alowed.

Fellow Sluethers, what do you think?

((Dang Villian hunt...I did it again))

Okay guys. I think we all understand the points you are making. Can we please let it die here so we don't lose another chunk of Sleuth history?

So now the boards have evolved past targetting people who speak up too haphazardly, and now there are targets on people who get along with other players?

This is why I'm a shadow on the boards. Sad.

Biggie, you seem to be taking personally a comment that was not directed at you in particular. I have no problem with you whatsoever. We've never spoken and I try never to pass judgement on someone with whom I have never spoken. *sigh* but, I am human, so it has happened a time or two. I do wonder though, why you ask what the 'inner circle' is in one post and then seem to know what it is in the next. Just an observation.

My perception does agree with Solve a lot 2's. It is my opinion and I do have a right to express it, just as others have a right to disagree with it. This is where debate comes in. When two differing opinions are discussed calmly and rationally without finger pointing or accusations it is constructive. You may not ever agree, but you can agree to disagree and keep it amicable. We don't all have to agree with one another. What a boring world that would be!

I would welcome talking with you in pm or im about this or anything else you would like to. As anyone who knows me can attest, I am pretty easy to talk to. :)

Ok everyone i think everyone here has made there point and clearly it isn't going to be settled.

CFM has already requested that this post ends. Now why don't we all respect her wishes and let the matter drop. This post is already very close to being deleted as it is.

No one is right and no one is wrong but it's unfair on all those who aren't involved and just want to play Sleuth.

Please everyone lets let this subject drop

Biggie - I did not have a problem with you at all. Up until today, I had never even heard of you.

My post was in response to your post about "resenting the idea that some ppl think their is an inner circle". Your message implicated that somehow the problem was with the people who felt unwelcome. This I did take exception with.

So, I looked up your post history and did not see any posts where you offered suggestions or disagreed with something. That made me think that is the reason you do not notice the "in circle"

Remington - I am not targeting players who get along. On the contrary, that is what I hope will happen. However, if someone attacks my opinions, I have a right to defend them and myself.

Ms. Helen - why is this post about to be deleted. If you all would stop to read my original post, it was not attacking anyone - simply stating my observation.
The people who disagreed with my opinion were the ones who started the "fight".

No matter what the definition of "conformist" might be, it is not ever used in a positive or complimentary way. That was a shot at Biggie, no matter what your intentions were.

And how did you research whether or not I read your post?

Hi Everyone
I still stand by what I said about Shady. I got myself retired because I had two F.As and was not careful enough.
I accused on a false assumption I made , making me an ass and getting LED retired.

Now to answer the other points raised here.

I have had people disagree with me, I have disagreed with people and I have been told I am wrong. By not only ramdom people in Sleuth but by people who are my friends :) And while sometimes it hurts, I know it is their opnion and that they are disagreing with that.

When I joined Sleuth, I was intimidated slightly. I did feel there were "in-jokes" on the boards.
However, I never thought any of this was done to exclude me. As I have pointed out before, that is part of any community and part of history.

I also quickly got over that as I made the effort to PM people, talk to people, join Sleuth Chat and get involved on the boards. How much you want to be a part of any community ultimately is your responsibly.

Even now in both Sleuth and Sleuthchat, I have people disagreeing with me, some of which are very dear friends, I do not think this makes me, them or anyone in an "in crowd".

Also, I have always made a conscious effort to include people into the community. I have always bumped up the Sleuth Chat post and invited people who hadn't come to chat before to come.

I've PMed Newbies that asked Questions on the Newbies Boards to see if they are doing ok and I've PMed Newbies and told them about various posts and asked if they wanted to post.

I started Bunch of Fives with the idea it could grow and more people would hopefully post.

If I am part of any "in crowd" it is because I have made an effort. I am not saying I am perfect, and I'm sorry if people think I am too abrupt and "preachy" in my posts. I'm sorry of I've hurt and offended anyone by my posting.

But at the end of the day, this is a game and I am one person posting what she thinks. This doesn't make me right but it also doesn't

make me responsible for any hurt or offense I have caused when it's not been delibrate. I post what I think and if people don't like that I can't help that.
It also does not make me responsible for someone CHOOSING to leave the game.
I also think it's sad and petty that it was bought up at this time. If you have been offended by me before, why not tell me then instead of bringing it all up now?
I also think these allegations are quite unjust.
And you DID make a personal attack on Biggie. You called her a conformist because she merely, like of people, does not think there is an in crowd.

I stand by EVERYTHING I said about Shady :)
And thank you Ben for lowering his prices, you rock.
Now will a random person ever get to be Shady and get all his money?
