My dead son and girlfriend approve of all of this drama. For my next trick, I think maybe I will put a LL from qualifying into the SF next round.

What I wrote in the PM to you about this, was my diplomatic side.

that's just my opinion as a person who actually ran many of these contests and i'm as big buddy of DM as Nole Fan, i didn't vote in that match because i couldn't choose, actually. it's just a matter of fair play and treating each other seriously, or not.

and at the top of all, i wonder why johnny tries making it look "funny" instead of at least apologising in here so DM and the others could just move on
The thing is, I made an error and my update with like 37 minutes to go in the R16 thread was wrong, I admit. But what am I to do now? Freeze the QF matches so we can do a revote?

I am laughing because of how serious everyone takes this all. I feel like the Joker watching Gotham burn. For so long I try to be Batman but now its just like fuck it. But I can't I must be Batman and finish this event. It is only QF stage. There may be more drama to come...

Yes, I did make an error, and if caught quicker, could have been rectified. I am applauding DM's ability to take such a punch, though, along with my thanks to his counting of votes in the early rounds for me during finals week.
