Pete was sticking up for Bronxsta who he believed was banned without just cause. I certainly don't condone what Pete did and while I wasn't privy to all of the details of that situation I think speaking about him that way is incredibly disrespectful; Pete contributed a lot to Touch Arcade and deserves better.

Spend weeks of your life dealing with people willing to email all sorts of crazy things to everyone and anyone because they got banned from a cell phone video game forum, then we'll talk.

Lol the banter. Thanks for explaining... Doesn't seem like him really does it shame. I think I found him on steam, I'll ask him about it see what he had to say (if it's really him)

If you do, please don't follow up here, at least not publicly. I don't want to open this can of worms again, everyone involved (thankfully) seems to have gone away.

I, personally, would still love to see Pete and Bronxsta back. Both never had a real pop at anyone, as far as I could see. I'm sure and hope they're doing fine though. Wednesday middays have never been the same here in the UK without PeteOzzy no matter how hard anyone tries.

You realise that I've been doing exactly what Pete did for over a year before he was even a member, right?
There were others, too, but "what he did" wasn't anything special.

Right now, Apple has changed how Wednesday night releases work. Instead of making them all come out at a single convenient time, everything just trickles out over the space of ~8 hours like water from a particularly annoying leaky tap. I still spend a couple of hours scanning for releases every Wednesday, but it's a slog through hundreds of crap to find a single new release.

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing TouchArcade forum members that PeteOzzy invented the iTunes link.

I also don't want to open this can of worms, but wanted to pop in to clarify that PeteOzzy is not banned, he's free to log into the forums whenever he wants. He chose to leave and never come back. He was, however, de-modded after grossly misusing his powers and stabbing everyone who works at TA in the back.

Bronxsta got caught up in the middle of that shit storm and actually had the opportunity to be allowed back before he took his anti-TA campaign way over the line and basically made it impossible for us to ever let him back.
