It went great, but hearing about my friend, Dillon, made it sad.

Unfortunately, my friend, Dillon, who was in my English class last year, is paralyzed in the hospital. His spine was, apparently, not damaged, so a couple of the teachers don't think it'll be permanent -- it could be just from shock from the accident.

He went around a corner in the Nachee (sp?) area near Yakima, went off the road, and flipped over. Apparently, he ejected himself or was ejected automatically, and, from what I heard, the car landed on top of him. I'm not sure when it happened (sometime before school started for sure, though), how long he was trapped, or how much the car was on top of him, but help came and he was still alive and kicking. His pelvis was crushed in several areas, though.

I think it happened for the following reasons. It could have been from one or more than one of these things:

- He was speeding.
- He dozed off.
- He had a medical problem.

I think it was speeding, as I don't think he would doze off while driving -- he told me last year his mom was hard on him when he still had his Learner's Permit. If I recall correctly, he got his license sometime last year (he's 16). As for it being a medical problem, I don't think it could have been that, either, as he doesn't seem to be the type of person to have a history of medical problems.

At this point, it looks like he'll definitely be out for first semester.

Look, you may not have empathy, but I do. You don't really have to, though, as you don't live here, but you could at least understand. Also, he's 16, and I know he doesn't do drugs.

I think you're in the wrong part of the Internet to talk about your life.

Not sure why I should be expected to care. I understand why you care, but I don't know the guy and probably never will. I'm not one for professing false empathy. Also posting his real name is a bit of an invasion of privacy (unless it's not his real name, but that's probably giving you too much credit).

I'll leave this topic open for now but you should consider whether this is really appropriate not just for this forum but also to your friend - does he really want to be a curio for the likes of us?

You're right. I originally sent this to another friend of mine on Yahoo and forgot. I've edited out the last name.

I can tolerate what Essen said, as it wasn't directly attacking him in any way. However, I have zero tolerance for comments like what you said.

Honestly if you feel the need to constantly validate your existence by posting updates to your life that rarely effect anyone here I'd suggest you just get a Facebook, Live Journal (lol people still use those?), blog, etc

Also drinking, drugs, and driving? Darwinism at work

He doesn't drink nor does he do drugs -- he's only 16. Not only that, but I would know if he did.

Age doesn't matter, and you can't know for certain one way or the other unless you're at his side 24/7/365.

Anyway, I say take schlag's advice. Get a Facebook or something if you want to continue posting these kinds of updates. By now you should well know the kind of reception you're going to get here, and as it always turns out, you don't like it.

What'd you get banned at official for, by the way?

Well, in my opinion, no matter how much a person tries to hide it, another person could tell if said person were drinking or doing drugs -- the smell of their breath, how they look, such as their teeth, hair, etc.

Also,

Official forums wrote:

It wasn't major trolling -- I was just getting after some people for their negativity. It's driving me crazy, basically. I mean, if they're so upset about the so-called lack of updates that they have to complain, then why do they keep playing and posting on the forums?

In my opinion, I think they only issue permanent bans when there are serious issues with said user.

I'd say your incessant trolling qualifies as a "serious issue."

I guess it could if it got bad enough, but I'm not doing it all the time, but I was talking more along the lines of name calling, being racist, posting inappropriate links, such as porn links, swearing, etc. I think I only got banned because my fifth infraction hasn't / hadn't expired yet.

On a side note, being negative and complaining about PSU could also be considered trolling.

In the past, Amaury, they made a point of stating that every ban they handed down was permanent.

Hm, maybe it was changed when they moved the forums.

I was gonna write a long post about how wrong you are, but you wouldn't understand. You never do. So suffice it to say that you are wrong, complaining about PSU doesn't amount to trolling on its own unless you have some serious issues with dissenting opinions, and you have a history of aggravating people who do play PSU on the 360 server by attacking them for voicing legitimate concerns.

You're lucky you were only temp-banned.

Yes. He's doing just that.

And the slow pace of updates IS SUCKING HARD.

Hey guys the reason that updates are slow is because they need to get them ready for 2 completely different platforms!

You say this yet you continue to post on the same said forum yet you do not play the game anymore. Where is the difference Amaury?
