I have sources close to the BSG production that inform me what's up- I don't go to them.
And I have developed very cordial relations with some Skiffy people who volunteer the info.
So do not impugn me or my sources.
They are just as reliable and credible as yours.
P.S. If I read something out of line here, sorry. But your comments certainly did not cast me in a favorable light compared to you & your contacts.
I don't recall making a single statement ever questioning any "news" you've posted. When the Dirk thing blew up, I didn't comment on it nor did I speculate on what might have created the disconnect or question your motivations. I don't believe I've done that here either.
I do think its fair to say (by your own statements) that you are "covering the news" and seeking it out. You said recently that you cover all rumors. I don't. I have some friends and associates I speak with and the subjects come up as topics of someone's job or common interests. When info seems to impact arguements going on at the boards (primarily Cylon.org) I comment. I see that as nothing more than saying "Hey, guys, here's something I know". As I've told Michael Hinman a number of times, I don't report anything. I'm just a fan. That's different than the role you've set for yourself in which establishing your position as some sort of leader seems to be as much your goal as anything you have to say.
I certainly wouldn't have spent a week telling everyone to tune into lvrocks or whatever its called to get my interview. I'd have just answered the questions posed to me. That's not a slam but an example of just how different we are and why we're involved in the fanbase in the first place. Promoting your interview was appropriate for the approach you are taking and the "leader" role you've said you want to fulfill. Its not appropriate for me and the fan role I want to fulfill. We have different intentions and different goals.
As for the rest, I don't wish to argue with you people and this has spiraled away from any sense of logic. Justify it as "discussion" or anything you want but the reality is that I shared some behind the scenes info on a completely different board with no intent other than inform people that there was more under consideration than many thought. Somehow that sparked conspiracy theories about secret plots whose concepts simply amaze me. I honestly can't fathom how some of you come up with all of this but those are issues you can deal with.
From this point onward, I consider this a hostile place and will regard it accordingly since I no longer believe this stupidity is based on any misunderstandings. That doesn't make me an "enemy" but it does mean that I'll consider this sort of conduct to be the standard of this board and its more vocal membership.
