And nice conspiracy here - trying to get me to break an additional channel rule by private messaging an op.
That isn't a conspiracy, it's again, standard etiquette. You're expected to act like a mature human being. When you have a problem with somebody in real life, you talk to them privately first before you take a bullhorn to your rooftop and start screaming about it, don't you?
Frankly, if you didn't just get the hint in me asking you to take this up privately, you must really be slow.
