Again, let's look at facts:

- Only 2 people have been banned. You and one other person, out of 130k downloads. That should speak for itself.

- There are currently over 1700 posts, some positive, some negative. We've highlighted many of the negative well written and/or humorous reviews by duplicating them on a separate Article page, and linking to those comments on the main page.

- And for the best negative comments (e.g. AlChestBreach), we've used them to overhaul parts of the mod (v0.99b) and then personally thanked the commenters and given them kudos. Constructive feedback, good or bad, is always appreciated. Feedback that's a result of the commenter not reading the mod page, skipping over parts of quests, not reading notes/terminals, and then not understanding aspects of game play or lore, also happens frequently as well, and we try to help those folks too as long as they're being nice.

- As stated in the sticky post, bug reports get moved to the bugs section, and your posts mentioned several bugs. When multiple users have the same issues, it's much easier, both for us and for users, to troubleshoot when bug reports are consolidated into a manageable number of bug threads rather than sifting through 65 pages of comments. If you ever decide to release a DLC-sized quest mod and then provide support for it, you might understand why that's a necessary protocol.

So anyway, I get that you're not happy. Sort of curious what would make you happy since you clearly didn't enjoy and don't intend on ever playing the mod again.

We make mods for fun and for free. There's not even a donation button. An occasional thank you is nice, but all we really ask in return is that people don't repeatedly harass us about providing free content, and 99.9985% of the community so far seems to think that's a reasonable bargain.

Again, moving non-bug reports to the bug report section and immediately banning people when they post said non-bug report again after a week of no response to 'this is not a bug report' is not what I would consider to be appropriate behavior.

Although I have to admit it is behavior that is to be expected from someone with your nick.

You claim we had "a week of no response" to your posts. The bug report is still up for anyone to see, and it shows the time-dated replies. The longest we took to reply to you was two hours and 13 minutes.

We also did not immediately ban you. We tried to address your concerns and responded to your posts promptly.

The sticky post to the mod at the top of the comments section clearly states:

"PLEASE READ THE ABOVE BEFORE POSTING - Posts already covered in the links above, plot spoilers, political comments, endorsement ransoming, reposts, idiocy, and rambling incoherent posts will get deleted. Repeatedly rude users may get blocked."

Four days after our last response to you, when you decided to disregard the sticky post guidelines, and it became abundantly clear that you had an ax to grind, that is when you got banned.

Just 2 people have been banned from accessing the mod out of 130k downloads. You might find that's a pretty tolerant ratio compared to some other mod authors.

Are there any other allegations you would like to make before the moderators eventually lock down the thread?

Why is this comment section muddied and why do you bother to answer to a child that won't understand or accept his fault? :)

There is no ax to grind, nor allegations to be made.

You've obviously moved a review to the bug report section twice, even after I politely pointed out that it wasn't a bug report the first time around.

I'm not sure why an honest and not even negative review caused you to behave like you did.

I even sent in a real bug report after being banned, but before I removed the mod.

And I thank you for the amusing conversation this has been.

Mod authors have complete rulership over their comment section and mod page in general. You have 0 saying in that, and don't require to explain you anything. If the author decided your comment needed to be moved, he can do so and doesn't have to tell you why. The fact that you act like a small child despite his patience is not going to get you anything. Drop the salty attitude and move on.

Thank you for your opinion, unasked for and worthless though it may be.

Wow. I have an immense amount of respect for you thuggysmurf, not that i didnt already highly respect you but your level of maturity and hospitality is almost unheard of. I honestly do not understand how an actual human being can be so dense and completely lacking of any moral responsibility and be soo unwilling to admit any fault of their own, as obvious as it is to everyone. Meanwhile you were trying to hold their hand through it all and actually give them a life lesson on how the actual world works lol. You my good sir are the definition of patience and maturity. Although you did not break through to this individual as that has proven to be impossible, you did succeed in teaching me a lesson in greater humility, so thank you.
