I would suggest finding some place in that thread where I wasn't consistent if it's to compare to what you have displayed. You admit to trolling and then in the same post want to be pardoned. Doesn't matter if you suddenly want to appear fair in your thoughts now, you weren't where you were quoted, and you weren't in the thread I pulled up. Between that thread and now, you contradicted yourself. Not a big deal, but it does put things in perspective.
I have no problem discussing it with you reasonably, as you mentioned to Alby, but don't come off in a manner that you don't want laid back upon you. I'm not saying everyone chanting "PWNED" is right/reasonable either, but understand that there were places in that past thread where you switched up and wanted to come off as fair (from previous posts in there), but now you've switched right back in here:
"I could go on a rant calling out those who hyped Gran Turismo 5, but my honor prevents me from doing so. Instead, it's measly 500k in December 2010 will just make me chuckle smugly at how right many others and I, who tried to temper the Gran Turismo 5 hype train, were. If you cannot top 1 million in December, then those legs must be pretty damn short".
That is why you were quoted. There was a lack of consistency between our last conversation and now.
There is always a lack of consistency no matter what type of faux "honor" individuals hold themsevles to for "consistency." I would rather be a hypocrite and own up to it than be some knight on the forums who is "consistent," yet can never own up to his or her mistakes or apologize when he/she is wrong.
I hate to sound so narcissitic, but when my past inconsistencies get brought up I have to address them :)
