The post which both Jose and Coco quoted in their sigs was dealing with a "what if" scenario involving myself as a parent, and hypothetical children. Were I to have children, I would want to pass on my personal values that I believe in to them. What parent wouldn't? Id never force a value upon my child, I'd simply guide them in their decision making, ones that would depend both on genetics and their own choices. I wouldn't disown my child, nor would I love them less. If they came home with someone of the same sex, I would want more then anything for them to be happy. If their partner was doing that for them, I would be supportive.
You are so two-faced, it's almost unbelievable. The words and terms you used were that you would not tolerate it in your house, thus betraying a sense of intolerance towards homosexuality for whatever reason. You also claimed it would be easier for "a woman" to love unconditionally whereas you felt you would have a harder time because you would also be mindful of what the "manly" thing to do is. This is just the beginning of your running theme in this post of saying one thing before and then twisting the meaning or context later once it gets out that people may not like you very much.

Quote:
Oh, and one more thing. This truly has nothing to do with the election. I'm sure many of the staff share vastly different beliefs, and I'd guess those beliefs had nothing to do with their appointment as Moderator. There are people trying to make this an issue and use this as a "further reason" why I shouldn't be a Moderator, but it's entirely irrelevant.
Neither does Coco or Crock's personal habits and beliefs, but if you want to take those up as causes to rally against, be prepared to deal with that kind of medicine yourself. Another example of how Dagger Dias can't deal with criticism as much as he is willing to give it out.

Quote:
SIDIOUS
Personally, I have a lot of respect for the forum staff in the things they do for us and what they have to put up with on a daily basis. The common I made was completely misunderstood. People are taking it as an ultimatum when it really was nothing of the sort. However, I do understand how it could have worded better.

I have absolutely no intention of breaking down the doors to the Board Room on my first day on staff saying "ok guys this is how it's gonna be done and if you don't like it you can get out!". Nothing could be further from the truth. I am a firm believer in following protocol. The G-Mods and Admins would outrank me in power, with the entire staff would have seniority over me. Much like in a real job, I might offer suggestions along the way, but ultimately, will do what I am asked to do.

What did I mean then? There are certain members of the staff who have been vocal in how they would do anything to make sure I never join the team. I am a team player and would still be willing to work with them despite their dislike of me. I didn't mean, "If you don't like me, quit" either. I simply was trying to say I was hoping that everyone would be willing to work with me, and I said it poorly. I have no problem with leaving personal issues at the door when it is time to get the job done, and I hope that these individuals would as well.
More Dagger Dias two-facing; going back on things he's been quoted on for the sake of trying to save face. Go re-read that comment and then try to defend it as anything but what it was: a statement of arrogance and entitlement, clearly meant to convey that once you won the election the staff would have to deal with it.

Quote:
Dagger takes everything personally!
Instead, I've seen page after page of people attacking my personal character, possibly more then they have my ability to become a Moderator. Most of these people know next to nothing about me, yet who I'm perceived to be as a person is more important then my ability to be a Moderator, to some.
It's funny because later on you mention that you seem to have dealt with all of this maturely. Sure, I guess...except for the part where you ignorantly decry all criticisms of you are just personal attacks and trolling instead of valid speculation of whether you are mod material or not. Who you are perceived to be as a person is reliant on what of you as a person you present around here in the time you've been here, and how you do it. Nice try at trying to dismiss the vocal opposition to you as just "not knowing you", but it seems they know enough about you to know that they just don't care for you being a mod.

Quote:
He doesn't understand the rules!"
I do understand the rules, and believe this has been taken out of context. I made a mistake when I had reported some posts incorrectly and people act like I abuse the report button for the hell of it. I was informed that I was reporting incorrectly, and I stopped. I believe people deserve a second chance, rather than to constantly be reminded of something that happened quite a while ago.
A show of hands, please, of how many people have had to have staff members tell them to stop using the report button because most every time they used it it was incorrect. Ok, thought so.

Quote:
Dagger is a terrible poster
Inevitably, someone is going to bring up the Video Game tournament, so let me beat you to it. I admit I goofed around in there when I could have come up with stronger arguments, and was arrogant in my Final Fantasy defenses. However, that tournament represents, at best, a few dozen posts of mine. Take a look at my post count. I have 4,300+ non-spam posts. To judge me on a few dozen lazy posts when I have thousands of solid posts is asinine.
Goofed around? I mean, not that it's a big deal, but you flat out tried to lie about your "experiences" with some games to try and make your posts sound less like the devoted fanboy fap material that they were. In short, you tried to sound fair and impartial when in reality you were advancing an ulterior motive. And that's part of why people don't want to see you as mod.

You label Coco as "untrustworthy", but in fact it is you who isn't worthy of trust. You are two-faced, you are willing to lie and smudge details to suit your arguments, and you are unwilling to budge and ever accept total responsibility for your actions. Even here with this thread, you can't just admit "Hey, I was wrong about this" where you clearly were wrong; instead you pull a "well, what I MEANT was this, but I can see where you guys might think I was wrong...".

Quote:
He's stubborn and not very smart
What some call being stubborn, I call determination. When I set my sights on a goal, I make it a point to accomplish said goal, within reason. When I make a promise, I intend to be loyal and keep it by remaining true to my words. As for me not being smart, I have two business administration degrees. I can speak multiple languages, made a video game from scratch with no training or help, and post about a multitude of topics that I have knowledge on.
My education required over 6 times the work load of your degrees combined; I'm not saying I'm better or that I work harder, but that just saying "I HAZ TWO BBA'S" isn't really a measure of much hard work (120 hours each degree...yeah, that must've taken a lot of determination) or smarts. You didn't build a game from scratch, either; you used a pre-built game development engine designed for allowing casual gamers and people with NO GAME BUILDING EXPERIENCE to whip up shitty games. Don't fool yourself, Dagger.

Quote:
All of the mods hate him
Yet another falsehood needing to be proven wrong. Even those who claim to be "vehemently against me" have come out and said they don't hate me. The mod staff is a TEAM. I know that if they truly hated me, I likely wouldn't have been allowed the nomination for this election. I also know that I have supporters who are on staff.
Actually, I don't really see many "mods hate Dagger" posts. What I see are "mods tend to back Coco" posts. I mean, once again, I can see why you'd think twisting words around to suit your arguments might seem like a good idea. The problem is that anyone with half a brain can see right through it.

Quote:
His threads suck
Last but certainly not least, my threads in the video game section have been criticized heavily. "They only get one page of responses".... Well, low response rate or not, I am providing discussion for a section that is in dire need of it. I don't see too many others making topics in there, especially by those criticisizing my own threads. If nobody posts in a section, it dies. I have helped keep it alive.
So you don't really even defend how much your threads suck, you just try to come off as a hero of the section for even trying. Riiiiight. I suppose you are right when you compared yourself to Alistair from Dragon Age: Origins; you will say ANYTHING if it means not having to answer tough questions. Merkley shits better VG threads than you. I have, too; I made a thread in The Bar Room just to ape your style once, and after a mod moved it to the VG section because they didn't get it, it still managed to perform about as well or better than the usual "Dagger" thread.

You are a coward, Dagger Dias. The fact that every response from you comes inside a new thread and that you disappear without actually addressing any of this head on and face to face (despite your sig claims of debating ANYONE ANYTIME ANYWHERE) is only more proof of that. Start actually being "manly" for once instead of acting like a child.

So I guess this is a case of damned if you do, damned if you don't. For days now, mods, former mods, respected experienced posters, and others have been calling Dagger a pussy, suggesting he didn't have the balls to debate his positions. So he responds to all of them that I could think of (except the Tastycles matter), admittedly much later than he should have, and he's still taking grief. Why don't some of you detractors debate the guy on what he has said, rather than just mindlessly attack the fact that he said anything? He may be offline, but I imagine he'll be back on at some point later to respond.

Edit: my apologies to Savage Taker and Dirty Jose. I wrote my post, had friends drop by, and by the time I returned to it to post it, you guys had responded. I don't care if people agree or disagree, but at least you guys did actually respond. Again my apologies.

Have you read the thread? Pretty much everyone is doing just that.

Not only are people debating him, but all he's saying is, "You're wrong, guys. I'm good, I swear!" He has nothing of substance in that post of his.

What Crock said. He isn't debating here; he's denying. He's denying that his posts MEANT what they clearly meant. He's denying that his homosexual child post was essentially a "NIMBY" declaration. He's denying that his "mods can deal with me or quit" post was meant to sound like he was saying "mods can deal with me or quit", despite that being near exactly what he posted (with a whole "they surely aren't too stupid to realize that" comment thrown in afterwards). He's pretty much denying that anything said about him in JGlass's thread and anything after that has been valid criticisms of his readiness to take a mod spot, and that all of it is just personal attacks. He's just denying everything, once again trying to take a high road and come off as above everything.

Just a couple points on top of what Dirty posted:

I'm pretty certain this has never happened.

If a section isn't generating discussion, maybe it's time to get rid of it. We don't need starry-eyed saviours who lack the skill to make their vision a reality. We need practicality and realism. If you're incapable of getting the section off of life support, why shouldn't we move on?

Why people still support him is beyond me. He's show time and time again that he'll flip flop on just about anything. Sure, today he says he'll be a good mod and will help out new poster, but he's shown he can't be trusted. Who knows what's going to happen if he does get modded. He'll probably just flip flop. He'll just claim he never said that and once he's shown a quote he'll probably just say that we misunderstood and that that's not what he meant at all. Get real. Most of us have a high school education or higher and knew exactly what he meant. No one misunderstood anything or twisted his words. They are right there in black and white.

Do you people really want Dagger as your next mod? Do you really want someone who can't be trusted at all. For now he says he's you're friend and that all of you supporting him are in this together, but if he ever gets modded he would drop you all like a bunch of dead flies. He'll stab you in the back and you'll be the first ones he'll go after.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have no reason to lie to you. On the other hand, Dagger has lied and flip flopped multiple times around. Vote for Coco or Crock. At least you know that when they say something they mean it. They won't go around later saying the complete opposite. What you see is what you get with them.
