    Yo, sugartits.

    Usually when real reporters report on a story they get both sides.
    Great job with this one. Stop writing articles in such a biased light, it's why everyone complains about you.

    Yes I'm being the ass you painted me as, why not.

    GD, please discuss reporting standards and how we have a very one sided 'official' paper.


    EDIT:
    Due to popular demand & opinion, I have fixed the "Newspaper" for everyone.

    Relentlessly shaming people who have attempted to abuse and benefit from inside information is our moral duty, especially when they continue to joke about what they did as their "shtick" - sugartits' message approved and seconded by me

    In fairness, the side that you had access to after being removed as a reporter was fairly plain - so there isn't much to really write about from that perspective, sneak peak for those wondering:

    I think the article is spot on.  Since I  am another female that you screwed  over.   I trusted my so called friend and even did not judge you harshly when Bogie busted you.   But what you did to me is AS LOW AS YOU CAN GO, screwing over a friend.  You should be permma fed in my books, but I  am not Bogie nor Ched.  So cry a river else where!

    Putting your API key in to TornStats is not "as low as you can go".
    It's run by IceBlueFire, I would argue the most trustworthy guy to have your API key.

    I think in the initial phase he helped Ched plan out what the initial API system needed. (Could be wrong on this one, source needed)

    You made a account using my information after I told you I did not want to join.  YOU DID IT BEYOND MY BACK!  You had no right. Yes it was my mistake thinking you were a friend.  My bad.   You will always be a cheat in the eyes  of me and the players of Torn.

    i have always found the paper to expect quite a bit in their stories.

    the 2 articles ive had published went back and forth a couple times before approved. i was thankful for the process as sugarvalves made sure that both my content and approach were top quality.

    just my opinion of course.
