I can understand the cooling-off period, certainly, and I agree with many of the points you've raised.

However, my issue is with the fact that his actions hurt someone else (the person he accused) unnecessarily, and thus needing such a cooling-off period can't be a valid excuse. It's one thing to do something stupid that doesn't have such serious consequences (after all, we all do stupid things and we all screw up frequently) but once someone's actions start harming others - and I don't see how publicly accusing someone of hacking your account can't be considered harming someone - a more serious apology, not a half-hearted pseudo-apology, is needed, and needed urgently.

I know his heart is in the right place, and I know he'll do the right thing eventually, because he's a decent person at heart, but "eventually" is not good enough. Part of being an adult is taking responsibility for your own actions, after all, and admitting your faults and making restitution to those you've wronged. Now, not later.

And no, the bad blood between schpydurx and myself isn't just as a result of this particular little drama, but the drama itself conveniently serves to illustrate some of my concerns: in essence, that I disapprove of schpydurx's treatment of others.

The closer we are to a situation, the more personally we take it.

And while I'm trying to foster an environment of cooperation here, I understand that sometimes this means first bearing one's soul.

One step at a time...One step at a time.

Your Diplomacy rolls are impressive today. Have you been putting extra points into Charisma?

Thank you for the vote of confidence. I simply let the die lay as they roll.

I'd like to lay my dice as they roll too, but I figure that might count as bribing the DM.
