Oh, and just so you know...Sodas is my self-proclaimed arch-enemy, so I'm quite sure he's only agreeing with you because you disagree with me. He typically goes out of his way to find things to paint Brandon in a negative light. I do not.

The only thing Terez is good at is slandering others. When did I ever proclaim Terez my arch-enemy? Yeah right. I'd never consider Terez my "arch-enemy," because I'd require someone actually intelligent and challenging. Obviously, Terez considers me her "arch-enemy", always obsessing about my purpose. Afterall, Terez did have to have me quoted everywhere in her signature to harass me, and when her posts got edited on Theoryland, she went to talk more crap in the Dragonmount thread on Asmodean. In fact, she is probably rolling at joy that I'm even replying to her in a way, like a kid that pulls crap to gain attention. As it stands, I'd suggest that you ignore her and keep your own collection of quotes/books on hand, so you don't have to listen to her misrepresent quotes, slander people, and eventually slander you, just because you disagree with her. So no, I'm not out to paint Brandon in a poor light. I disagree with some of his decisions and don't particularly like his writing style. But an error is not the same thing as an edit or change of mind.

Look Terez, i don't much care--I just think you have claimed upon yourself a responsibility to which you are not living up to, but you don't much seem to mind. It's clear that you like being the one to declaim what's what, so good for you, that's fine. Just understand that I'll be directing people to take your addendums with a grain of salt. Don't feel bad, it's no less than I did with Thus Spake the Creator.

So now it's just an excuse to denigrate the interview database. That's hardly surprising, but childish, really (just like it was childish of you to refuse to add it to your list of resources on Dragonmount in the first place....for well over a year, actually). I mean, your motives here are really clear, Luckers. All the outside observers can see that you are twisting Brandon's words around....to what purpose? To be an ass-kissing fanboy? To try to make me look bad? And I'm quite sure that most of the users of the database can use their own brains to figure out what is going on. The whole point of linking to the original source is so that they don't have to take my word for it.

Just a point, but I did not refuse to add the database to the list of resources on the general forum--I, a) did not know of the database when that list was set up, b) did not manage that thread. It was Maj's baby, and c) recieved no requests to put it up there.

I'll put it up now, since you've asked so nicely.

Default Ogier language Q&A, at the B&N Woodland Hills event

Quite interesting, that you would add Katherina's paraphrasing of Brandon words. Meanwhile totally ignore my direct quote of Brandon's words "Sulin is an Error", from the Woodland Hills event.

Likewise, the database ignores other direct quotes Brandon gave in the B&N Woodland Hills event. For example, about the Ogier language:

Question: "Do Ogiers have accents, dialects among the steddings?"

Answer: "Its a three part response, its partially RAFO, partially MAFO, and partially I can't say because if I did it would break my N.D.A. with Tor Inc."

Felix, this all stems back to your misrepresentation of the pre-TGS signing, which we have discussed before. I will try to clear up the question about Sulin at JordanCon. I have a tendency to trust you on this one, despite your history, but I'd rather be sure. The question about Ogier doesn't really reveal anything, so I'm not too concerned about omitting it.

Indeed Dida, I did not ignore your quote, I discussed it in quite a lot of detail--I even conferred with Bob Kluttz who agreed with you, and sent requests to Brandon to substantiate it--but based on the fact that it was in opposition of three seperate quotes on the issue, combined with the way you presented it--mixed in with all your own preconceptions--I reguarded as an unreliable citation. Without seperate substantiation I held it as suspect. But I did not ignore it.

In point of fact this is not a different situation at all. I'm very stringent on the issue of citations of what the author has said. This attitude lead to my unwillingness to trust your citation just as it did to my dissaproval of Terez's.

Or perhaps he's Gwodinning it. I'm not entirely sure whether or not he intended to make a spelling mistake.

Ahh, this is cleared up at last:

Sure, you guys deserve an answer on this one.

Sulin began life as a simple typo. When I saw it, I shrugged, and had a good reason. Maria thought that reason would not work.
Brandon
So we decided to retcon it out. Mistake was mine all along. Really nothing special to report there, I'm afraid.


Or at least, it should be. LOL. Wouldn't be surprised if some still insisted on arguing that it was not an error.
