    This is the last and final message and response to the Dear Loser Message in the loser's PM.

    I've been taking alot of heat because of this. I only click a button for the board to pick a winnier that's all. Tavenger has to change the board to get to it. That might mean downtime for the board.

    I'm also considering ending the lottery and not adding a new one if this continues, or even resignation if it really gets out of hand. I get 2-5 PMs everytime I end the lottery from someone b*tching about that message.

    I already know about the dear loser message. There is even a thread or two about it.

    of course it is. It's was a two week announcement too, but I had to reactivate it :(. I'm getting tired of repeating my self over and over, especially if I have no control of it.

    well you mods know about it already and many of you come here so much that you all don't really care for the message anymore but SI you were part of that group before. I still remember your thread about this issue. I'm just tired that I get the blame for it, especially that I can't do a darn thing about it.

    hmm, don't remember starting a thread about it - wasn't that Stillcrazy? - and don't remember being particularly bothered by the message either.

    I liked his opening comment. It still makes me laugh. "You know you're in trouble..."

    King … yes I started the thread but it was not meant to be negative at all … it was meant to be humorous … I really do not have any issue with the 'Dear Loser' message

    Upon rereading the complete thread I can see how some of the ribbing may have been misinterpreted … Please accept this as an apology … nothing I wrote was meant to do anything but make people laugh

    You're never going to please everyone King.
    I'll bet for every person that decided to get bent out of shape and complain about it, 5 others got a kick out of it but didn't say anything.

    Don't sweat it - your doing a great job, and it's just not worth the energy it takes to let it bother you.

    If it keeps going we'll develop a "Dear Banned (former) MidiBuddy Member" bot/script that crawls through mail and PM inboxes looking for key words, autoreplies with something really sarcastic and bans them from the boards.

    Moral of the story...
    If you're going to let something bother you, really let it bother you. Innovate some horrific counter-measure, spend way too much time quantifying it's ramifications and orchestrating it...
    Then ~ Crack a beer, smile and return to the Admin Control Panel.
