Awwww, the shill who pretended not to know about his own game deleted the thread. Luckily, I had anticipated as much.

I think this really should stick around for posterity. I'd be happy to delete this thread with a simple apology, rather than continuing to be misleading and try to pretend it never happened..

Anyone ever hear of this new game out called Disparity? I know its another pen and paper RPG and that it can be found and bought for cheap on Scribd. I'm going to go and check it out. Google it and see what you come up with. It's Disparity RPG and I think they even have their own blog as well.

SHILL ALERT

Dude, shilling like you don't know about the game is really low. It makes me not trust you as a person. Just come here and say, "Hey, I made a game and I think it's pretty awesome!" Then tell us about the game and why we'd want to play it. We support indie endeavors... but I will not try this game now... no way.

It makes me sick that this guy makes an account, comes on here and treats us like we're idiots and pretends he doesn't know about this game -- and then someone calls him on it and he closes his account and runs off. Anyone who might have thought about buying this game should know the kind of person behind it. If he'd just come on here and said, "I'm sorry, that was really dumb of me to do." I'd turn off the high-powered flame thrower...

I completely agree. It does feel sleazy. Lots of people advertise their own games, they just don't pretend to not be related to them.

Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fast.

While I agree that shilling isn't so cool, isn't this a bit like harassment? I don't get a happy feeling from any of this thread.

How is it at all like harassment? It's not like personal messages are being sent to the original author (I assume).

Seems like he made a mistake, and rather than own up to it, he tried to erase any record of it.

I had my own reservations about re-posting it... I was pretty miffed when I realized he had deleted the thread. I'm not trying to harass anyone, but I do think that people should know before they buy the game what kind of people they'll be dealing with -- for many people that won't even matter, and if the game's good it can survive on it's own merit.

I dunno. I think it's pretty low. I'll probably delete this thread myself at some point, because I don't want to brand someone with a Scarlet S forever because they made a mistake, but the original post was seen for 12-24 hours before it was deleted, so I think this one should be as well...

Besides, there's no such thing as bad publicity, right? I bet more people clicked the link to check out his game after I posted it, than bothered to google it from his own post.

I have encountered a similar sitch here on the Geek. While it's sad to learn of hidden agendas and deceitful profiles creeping into our positive community, the Truth always comes out.
