Has anyone else noticed the shift in the nature of the posts by our VCs?

In the past the VCs where not afraid to show their emotions in their posts, to argue with others when they where in disagreement. It was not unusual to see emotions fly about from the VCs, to stick to their guns and vehemently argue their sides!

Now we see post like "Thank you for your input", "That is a valid argument, but...", "(Explain rule) and see Additional resources for similar questions", when in the past we would see posts to the equivalent of things like "Yeah that rule is not going to change so no there is no reason to ask", "Man, will you stop arguing the same point over and over again it is getting annoying!" and "Grrrrr for the last time look at Additional resources, Good day to you sir!"

I miss the days when I used to get death threats in my email from VCs, VCs telling me to shut-up!** VCs acting like real posters not just throwing around rote.

I wonder if they release their anger of us lowly PFS players in their super secret VC forums to vent what they used to say in the open?

Mark Garringer: "Argh Dragnmoon is complaining again!"***
Michael Griffin-Wade: "Yeah I know, I wish he would shut up!"
Dave Woodfin: "Hey at least you guys don't live near him!"

* Post mostly in jest, but I have noticed a change in attitude by the VCs in the forums.

** No email death threats where actually ever received by VCs, but I am sure I have been told to shut up ;)

*** Yeah I know you guys talk about me!

Oh you are so getting a stern talking to mister!

You might have a point.

I think it is sometimes a balancing act posting on the boards.
As VCs we are expected to address all sorts of topics in a civil maner. At the same time I sometimes get this paranoid feeling that some posters out there have nothing better to do than argue every single statement a VC makes.

VCs are (mostly) pasisonate PF players like the rest in here and it does spoil some of the fun when people react to the VC tag as was it a red cloth.

... And yeah, if things do get too quiet on the super secret VC board we tend to pull out old Dragnmoon quotes and have ourselves a laugh.

I paid for an argument, and all you're doing is being contrary.... No, I'm not.

In all seriousness, I believe all VCs hold the Shadow Lodge values of holding our leaders accountable and truly wanting the best for the Society and it's members close to our hearts. If we sometimes appear quiet or reserved on matters publicly, then rest assured, we're taking the good fight right to the Decemvirate's doorstep! If anyone truly embodies the values of the Shadow Lodge, it's your Venture-Captains.

It seems that some VCs are going to have to 'dance' with Squeely Nord for telling super special secrets.

Just because someone made a duplicate of the cake doesn't mean that the original cake wasn't a lie.

No. They haven't been brainwashed. However the European ones have been assimilated by the unstoppable power of the kazoo! That is the new menace rising to threaten this age of the world...

I think our Venture Captain, JP Chapleau, missed the brainwashing call. He is just as outspoken and blunt as ever. We like him that way.

On a more serious note, I know that my inability to post under my characters, or any of my goofy aliases like Capt Shatner or David St Hubbins, stops me from chiming in on some of the fun threads.

So I only get to banter with the friends I have made at conventions. And Kyle.
