Unfortunately I'm posting this from my phone, so I'll be a tad clumsy with this thread, undoubtedly, but, I'm afraid the post eliceted a rather sharp reaction, and, while I'm sure it'd be best to wait until I get home, that's in a lot of time, and I simply do not have the will to ignore something like this.
I am, of course, referring to !!Scootaloo's post here http://ponyville.us/pony/res/849668.html#857859
(pardon the lack of quality crosspost; I was never good at those).
Not only was it incredibly insulting, I had no chance to explain myself or give my own story. Instead, I was berated publicly, for all to see, on something that I simply do not believe to be true.
As I'm sure you can understand, it's thoroughly embarrassing, generally stressful, and, naturally, enraging.
If these sorts of judgements must be made, please, keep them at the very least private, and give a chance to reply. Instead, I have to make this thread, which undoubtedly only further sets us at odds, as I'm certain now all parties feel insulted.
This did not need to happen. I am, and always will be, completely open to discussion from anyone, on any issues between us. While I am certainly bullheaded, you can ask Mikie for confirmation on that, I am also always willing to communicate past differences or issues. Again, Mikie can confirm that.
All in all, I should hope no user needs be berated and publicly shamed like this, and certainly would hope it is not standard practice.
