There comes a time, when we need to put aside out differences and celebrate good causes.

Where members of this site, of different races, religions, age, gender, sexuality, trolling level, gaming level, singing level, awesomeness level etc, can come together to accomplish one goal.

Unfortunately, there's been a lot of drama lately, and we've lost sight of the bigger picture. I know people have had words, and expressed them today, but we need to calm down, and retain our emotions.

Airmax has- though many disagree or have qualms- done a lot for this site. Not many people would be able to do the job he does, which such pride, honour and dedication, and not have a head full of hair. I've seen Max waking up in the wee hours of the night, just to delete spam threads, or messaging people to calm them down and try to clear their head. He's very empathetic and understands that we're not all perfect- and he tries his best to give us as many chances as possible, because he knows people can be good.

Also, Max is a very fun person to hang out with. Especially on hangouts. Forever, will I remember the weird calls, where he said he couldn't turn on his cam because he had no pants on, or that he hated turtles, etc. Unfortunately, I never got to see any drinking games, but I'm 18 now, so it's legal in Trinidad! :D He's very chill, yet is willing to put his foot down, and deal with a situation.

Max, though we're not as close as we can be, is a good friend of mine. And I think today of all days- we need to take a moment to sit back, relax, and celebrate his one year closer to death with him, or expiration. (I'm not certain what the Juggle phrasing for the termination of their robots might be.)

So Max, I love you, as I'm sure many do, and appreciate the assiduous work you put forward to the site. Thank you for being a great person, and being a part of my DDO family. (And now perma-banning me, as I'm sure Bench will agree!) <3

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

Please, can we all take some time, to wish Max a birthday greeting, or share some love and appreciation for the great person he is.

Oh, and this might be a bit late, but HAPPY HANUKKAH!

Much like in the news, positivity threads don't get the attention they deserve because they aren't flashy and exciting. Endark has a series going -- something like Making the World a Better Place -- where he highlights positive news stories. The atmosphere of a site really can influence your mood, if you invest some of your self-worth in the opinion of others. As such, it's good to stay positive whenever possible.

On that note, Max is awesome and Esocial is also awesome.

I saw Max at a chinese restaurant on Friday, and he yelled at me for being there, implying that only Jews can eat Chinese food on Christmas Day.

He probably wrote this:

Anyway, Happy Birthday, you anti-gentile bastard!
My work here is, finally, done.

I've spoken to Max once on hangouts, and he is genuinely a nice person. He's so helpful if you message him, and he's never brash or demeaning.

I at least will never follow the mob that dislikes Max or the work he is doing.

A thread that promotes love is a thread worth bumping :)

Esocial, you are such a sweetheart.

Airmax obviously cares about DDO a lot and puts a lot of effort into the site. Happy belated birthday.
