But the way you said it sort of implied it. Their reason is bogus from the get-go as I never released the table PERIOD, just a picture and AJ himself said WIP pictures are OK regardless of whether you've yet obtained permission or not. I didn't make him say that. It was in the T2 thread that got moved to the debate area which is now defunct (but others can verify if you don't remember it). My view was that I was not doing anything wrong by using a copyrighted photo that KC and I had bothed worked on (so no I wasn't trying to "force" permission with a screenshot), but even if you don't agree with that view, one can't deny I never released the table. If I did, where is it? All I see is a picture of it here (now called 4.0 since it's a major version overhaul). The ONLY copy is on my hard drive. And I did get permission from KC in a PM a couple of days ago and I still haven't relased the table so what I did is EXACTLY ACCORDING TO VPForums RULES! I couldn't be any more in-line with the official rules than I've been. I've never released mods or updates without permission I've never posted personal flames. Arguing or disagreeing with someone (even loudly) was never a rule there (until now with their rules about posturing and finger pointing, which at least one staff member is now pretending was meant as a joke. Joke my a$$. 3 people have been banned with in the past 24 hours. They pointed their finger at the moderators and said they thought what they were doing wasn't right. GONE. Ask Kristian, Rodgz or Emkaah if they think it's a joke.
