Darren,
True, but certain conditions affect our choices, either for better or worse.
We aren't just a computer who does everything from human programmed conditions or random number generators. We have emotions, we have commitments, and we have families. If our commitments get compromised by others to such an extent, then his emotions would have kicked in, which isn't exactly his fault. It is natural human instinct to do what is easiest for us, and if the pressure has mounted up so high that the easiest thing would be to work more for a quiet life, then he has done that throutgh instinct, not personal choice or preference. Who knows how much this guy has been harassed? All we know is it has made him snap, and that isn't tolerable either.
Regards,
Damien.

Yes an beforehand he decided to pull people up for doing things that he
himself was doing, sorry that's just double standards and I have no
tolerance for that.

After all said and done like I have said before we have choices.

Darren,
This is no laughing matter. He is being pressured and harassed on and off
lists, which can make anybody break under the strain. If one person breaks,
it can affect their mood, and their mood can affect those around them. It
then becomes a tense atmosphere until the pressured person finally snaps and

spends more time pandering to the whims of the pressuring situation, at
which point the atmosphere becomes cold as well as tense. And under that
sort of atmosphere, anyone can snap, including relationships. Trust me, it
has happened to me. Not exactly through game development, but through other
situations around me.
So please don't make false accusations or assumptions about Thomas guilt
tripping, or laugh about it. Thomas is a very reasonable guy and I'm sure he

wouldn't just say something to guilt trip anyone. I've seen his activity for

five years roughly now, and he is a firm but fair character. But he would
never flame anyone. He had his opinions, but they came in the form of
constructive criticism rather than downright flaming.
Regards,
Damien.

Lol don't be silly, nobody can destroy a marriage or relationship unless
the
2 people involved allow it to be. I think Thomas only said that to try and
lay the guilt trip on people. Which isn't going to work regardless.

Damien can you pass on our best wishes, well those of us who care that is.
Thomas did a job and a half here and was even and fare minded in his
decisions. I can't program games, but I value him and his ilk who can and
for him to go because of some selfish sucks in this community is shameful
and if he ever comes back you'd best push off first.  all those who have
taken him apart well done for destroying someone and his marriage maybe.
grow up if you're capable of such.

Hey folks,
I am afraid and sad to say that Thomas has carried out the act specified
in his email. His unsubscription notification came into me roughly an
hour

and half ago.
I think it is very sad that it has come to this and I would hope that the
offending members will learn by the consequences of their actions. I do
hope, when things are a bit calmer, that Thomas may reconsider his
decision to leave everything he has been working so hard to achieve, but
I'm not banking on it. I have seen several situations where Thomas has
been upset by the amount of pressure that is being put on him on both
this

and his own mailing lists.
I try not to take sides, but at the same time it is totally uncalled for
to put so much pressure on an independent, hobbiest game developer that
he

feels he has to leave absolutely everything behind him.
Regards,
Damien.
