Fanning the flames doesn't help. Picking sides doesn't help. Not even if you're on the right side.
Drama is stupid. It can be funny, but it's still stupid.
To take it seriously only gives it legitimacy. To ignore it reveals it for what it is: an immature outburst.
You might have recently decided that I am a terrible jerk. You might be right. But recent evidence should considered from a new perspective: being fake. Not photoshopped or edited or even taken out of context. But fake. Staged.
At the risk of sounding insulting, I can't believe anyone took the feud between Miss Medicina and me seriously. My own first post was so ridiculous that I felt it was obvious. I went out of my way to make myself look bad. I went out of my way to make the accusations so absurd as to not make sense. For her part, Miss Medicina followed my lead with labels like "a fascist name" and "jerky mcjerkface".
I probably didn't fully take into account how existing drama makes people more sensitive to new drama and how drama spawns drama. Too bad for me I guess.
We weren't trying to troll. We were trying to stir up trouble. These are different! With all the stupid drama stuff going on, I thought it would be fun to point out the utter absurdity of drama. The waste of time it is. So I willingly stepped into the bad person role and started coordinating our behavior; which is the first line in the chat log you see. I included plenty of taunting of "I bet you're taking screenshots" sort of stuff, to make sure she had her material to work with.
Someone did blow our cover, but that's what super-delete is for. I normally reserve it for spam posts, but this was urgent! However I hate destruction of evidence, so I copied it first.
No sarcasm my behind. Miss Medicina and Klepsacovic masterminded this little episode of drama. I was there, watching. Tsk, shame on the two of you.
Incidentally, you were both great. Couldn't see myself ever be that good at RP (even if RP wasn't how you were thinking of it).
Now let see if this gets published or not, and *I* don't get gkicked. :D

What I'm trying to get at are three points:
1) Please don't hate me.
2) Please don't encourage drama by hyping it up.
3) Go read Larisa's post on drama. Because she's awesome.
