It's not personal. The way he did things here rubbed me the wrong way, even though I can no longer remember why. And that's all. Doesn't make him a bad guy, an idiot, or anything else. I just have remaining ill feelings with no real reason, and sometimes I do that. When I start giving it to someone, I tend to get into a pattern and don't really consider it any further beyond that.
I'm not in much of a position to judge people personally....when I do it it's in a fit of emotion, and I regret it later. Alan has more success and experience in life than I ever will, and he's probably earned it all. And in the bigger picture, his time here and around this forum is meaningless. I can voice my displeasure at his efforts my entire life and it won't make a difference, and it really shouldn't. He did his time, and he's on to bigger better things just like all the community managers we've had. But if you don't expect me to put my foot in my mouth at least once a week, you haven't learned me very well.
If I could've gotten a job at Wal-Mart, I probably wouldn't be able to work on video games right now. I wrestle every day with which outcome I would have preferred. It doesn't exactly inspire confidence in myself, though.
