Oh please, lets keep it somehow human. Its not necessary to start verbal attacks again. IMHO it is also the responsibility of the dev team, to formulate things a little more clearly. Just take those two initial posts here (locked thread at start) and dont tell me, people could easily misunderstand this whole stuff.
As i feel a little addressed by your text, i can tell you that i dont want to clean dirty laundry here and will not dig out all the things that where said at that time. From my side, all started with the "extraordinary" talk, about CRT support and is the main reason (for me), how the XP stuff started to escalate. I really try to understand all the steps that where done lately, but you also need to understand, that some things can be delicate, from a community POV. I am happy that most things could be cleared and appreciate your open approach with Calamity for example. But if you talk about Hitler stuff, then i also hope, you remember how this started and who you called pigs etc.
I have seen pigs eating human corpses, so it leaves me cold, the same goes for RB, who thinks that germans brought us only WW2. I could dig out even more stuff, but this would be absolute childish behaviour and doesnt bring us forward. No one wants (at least not me) to halt/stop the necessary steps for MAME that are needed for a healthy future, but next time please try to keep away the arrogant attidude or try not seeing everything from a paranoia view, that people always want to do something intentionally bad for MAME (the same applies to myself of course).
Many things are a big misunderstanding most of the time, so we should focus sometimes more on "clearly" words. You have problems to understand my english, i have problems to understand yours.
And what is this "free games" debate lately? I dont see anything wrong with gaming, cause thats how MAME started and how the majority sees MAME, even if MAME has grown up in the past view years. I dont mind if there are some more games (or less) and have no interest to see games appearing at any cost, but if you talk about accuracy, i see a big loss for kicking CRT-support and i am sure that i am not the only person who see it that way and you should stop thinking that this is only 1% of the MAME community and even if this would be true (which is not), exactly this 1% is the community that really cares about accuracy, that you initially treat with contempt.
