It’s been some time since I posted. I know, shame on me. But every once in a while, something simply makes me “cranky”. This is one of those “once in a whiles”.

Seems the CEO of Casual Collective, Will Harbin found it appropriate to tell a customer of one of the companies games to “bugger off” when they gave the game a 1 star review and voiced their displeasure in the way company employees were “playing” the game.

For as long as the thread exists, you can read it here…

Will Harbin – the CEO of Casual collective thinks I should bugger off

What followed is what really made me “cranky”. Mr Harbin continued to taunt members on their forum with posts like…

Wah wah wah. Here is your chance to take me down, I’m at 142, 55

But it doesn’t stop there either. That customer was subsequently banned from their forum, and mocked by employees after the ban and after the thread was locked with posts like…

Will has commanded me to agree with him!

My message to Will Harbin… Show some class and man up.

UPDATE 02-10-2011… As I kind of suspected, the thread and posts have been deleted. So, below I’ve added screen captures of what I linked to that was deleted.

Additionally, Casual Collective CEO Will Harbin added a “rules sticky” this morning and announced that a forum moderator would be arriving soon. Great! Fantastic! Anyone who spent time on the forum knew that rules and moderation was sorely needed.

I want to share an excerpt from those rules…

If you don’t like us or our games, why are you here? Stop wasting our time and yours if you don’t have something positive to contribute.

So beware. If you’ve nothing positive to say, don’t bother saying anything at all.
