Hmm...they say that this forum is not on good terms with theirs? Odd, I've never really heard any mention of r3d on this forum, neither negative nor positive. I figure that must be a good thing, otherwise if relations were so terrible people would be constantly speaking bad about that forum here, which I never see.
Ah that explains a lot. This incident didn't turn him into an asshole, he just always was an asshole.
