    Dr. Derek Smart,

    I'm still not gonna tell you what I worked on. To quote you : I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU THINK OF ME .

    And yeah, your game is still ass. You're the laughing stock of the game development community. Yeah I know, YOU DONT CARE - which is why you pose 800 line responses and spend all that time to nicely BOLDIFY. You're a complete raving lunatic. And after some quick Google searches, I found you've been at this for almost a decade. You're a complete raving lunatic and a pathological liar to boot!

    Goodbye, Dr. Derek Smart. I will ignore you from now on as I have actual games to ship. You know... games without 10,000 crash bugs and 12,000 patches.

    - You didn't answer my questions

    - You come back with more insults, personal attacks and the usual smoke screens.

    If anyone is a pathological liar, its you - pretending to be something you're not. You're just jealous and it shows. Only someone who is either (a) lying (b) ashamed of their products (c) just plain ashamed, would hestitate to give out some simple and straight forward information. WHAT GAME HAVE YOU *HELPED* DEVELOP AND SHIP. Simple question. Only a simple answer is required. No smoke screen. No befuddling. No fuzzification.

    I will deal with you later. Right now I have things to do. So, in the meantime carry on. We'll see if Dave is going to live up to his word about curbing this farce. Since at 100 posts you consider yourself to be a reg, we'll see.

    If you don't like it, why don't you stop coming into the forum titled "More ATI Driver News from Derek Smart," doesn't it firstly indicate that it has to do with *him*? At least, what comes to my mind from this title, is that it has to do with him. I mean, really?... Why don't you go back to your other forum titles, instead of letting your nosieness, curiosity, whatever the case may be, lead you into this area of b3d? If he hurts you so, it serves you right for being so weak and curious. Only enforces the saying: "Curiousity killed the cat."

    Annoyed with him? Don't post, just leave this page, Shadrox.
    And when you say:
    "If this was Nvidia beeing attackt. ?
    Then what?"

    What exactly do you mean? I'd hope you aren't asking HIM that question, especially after you say to go. Sounds sort of silly, don't you think? Because it will elicit a reply. Hehe. Silly. :roll:

    Excuse me? I don't mean to be harsh, but I don't understand anything but line 4. Respect can only be defined by your values. Personally, I don't know you well enough to say what respect should mean to you. Don't ask me, ask yourself. Or, if you are content with dictionary definitons, you should find a lovely definition of respect at Dictionary.com
    I don't know, but you use some heavy language to get your panties in a knot over Derek Smart. Why did you come back into this forum page if you are so ticked off about him??? Settle down, please!

    The only farce here is your attitude.
    Lose it or leave.

    I'm not going to answer your questions - so live with it DOCTOR Smart! Like I give a rat's ass what a hack/liar/lunatic like you thinks of me. And how are you going to deal with me? By sending me a copy of BC3000AD which will make me choke on my own puke as I'm trying to carve my eyeballs out with a rusty knife after my computer explodes?

    That's hilarious coming from you, Dr Successful Game Developer! hehe

    This is ludicrous. The lot of you are honestly no better than Derek is in any fashion. His bald-face and tactless opinions are matched by your carefully couched venomous and spiteful comments.

    Facts do not need a backing character deconstruction to be valid. They stand on their own. (This is provided you care to join the discussion sans existentialism... we need not get into proving that facts in fact exist.)

    Derek is a brazen braggart with a foul mouth and a bad attitude. This is a given. The mods should decide whether this is acceptable or not and act decisively. Either it is unacceptable, and he goes (as well as the rest of the foul-mouthed rabble), or it is fine, and anyone is allowed to act that way.

    Otherwise we'll have a new rule: All animals are created equal, but some are more equal than others.

    At which juncture we will know that B3D may be vendor impartial, but is forum poster biased (based upon whether that poster is deemed to have something to contribute or not by the powers that be.)

    So which is it?

    Is information about 3D technology of the greatest importance such that the level of civility may be compromized?

    Or is the community atmosphere important such that loudmouthism is punishable by banning?

    The unwashed masses await the judgement of the mods. Do I get to say "fuck" with reckless abandon, or are we obligated to observe some level of decorum?

    I'd have to agree. I think Rev summed it up best when he said if you treat him with respect you'll get the same back.

    After reading threw more posts than I care to remember, I can honestly say that I don't blame him for his attitude. Most of the 'opposing' posts have underlying negative attitudes and demorlaizing overtones that appear spitefull to even me - and I don't know or care about Derek.

    How 'bout you all grow up?

    PS. Although their were funny points - Fresh's razor and eyeball comment; or Derek's exorcism of ATI's drivers. :wink:

    So you don't think he has any part in it? You think people just don't like and become hostile to him for no reason? Can you think of any developer who has been treated the same way? If I read you correctly, his behavior is only a reaction to blistering attacks by others. He is innocent, and merely defending himself against unfair attacks?


    Yes, other people responding to him simply cause the flames to get worse, but why is it that people respond this way in the first place? I invite you to ponder that.

    Copy 'n Paste from the other thread:

    Everyone - stop attacking Derek Smart personally. It no wonder that he comes out rather forcefully defending himself when half the people here on this forum are more interested in character assasintation than anything else. Yes, he's got a past, yes we can all see various things about him on the web, fine, but what relevance does it have to the issues at hand???? I thought this was a technical forum, why are some of the most technically minded posters here reducing themselves to levelling personal attacks? Why not argue with Derek on the technical details that he seems to have a problem with.

    And, no, this is not another 'bending over backwards' for Derek, its for the sake of this forum if you can't see that continuing in this fasion will only continually degrade these forums then you are not the people I had hoped you were. :(

    I hope you'll note that despite repeated attacks personally Derek has stayed remarkably calm recently.

    If anyone is thinking 'why not just ban him' talk to me via PM or mail again.

    Wow. And I thought it was just me thinking that people were getting worse than Derek, according to their own words of him. =P
    It's nice to see there are a lot more! Hehe.

    The problem as i see it is that mr Smart himself isn't exactly shy of attacking other people. I'm thinking about OpenGLGuy = incompetent and stuff like that.

    Because history seems to repeat itself ?

    Yes - and I asked him to tone it down and he has.
