The last couple days have been a little crazy out there on the armor forums. Just the idea of armor fans getting together and talking about armor is great. Big kudos to the forum founders who put out all the effort to create and maintain those forums. That is an incredible amount of work and those of us who love armor, salute you!
However, on a slightly more sour note. There are always people out there with agendas. You know them at work, the perpetual sour puss. There is always one. I have always done my best to steer clear of drama and negativity. I figure that life is way too short to dwell on anything negative. So, it is always a bummer when you run across those same old negative people with agendas on the forums. They might actually be quite happy people but for some reason they have established an agenda, perhaps an alliance with a particular armorer. Which is great. However when it is taken to the next level and they feel that they need to bash one armor maker, in order to garner perhaps additional orders for their armorer is so unfortunate. I kind of feel sorry for them in a way. Just the mere fact that they feel overwhelmingly compelled to spew ridiculous slanderings is such a waste of energy.
Great armor speaks for itself. And I will always be the first to acknowledge fantastic armor, no matter who produces it.
For those on the forums who love to sling mud, it is time to move on. Anger is not helpful and it is disrespectful to the thousands of us who love our armor forums. So lets keep our forums meaningful and useful.
And for those people who find themselves on the receiving end of negative forum comments, I wish you all the best and hope that things will look better very soon.
