This is the game that Max plays in catspew's remarks:
He won't tell you off or anything of course but will probably suggest that Joe has his confidence but thanks for your suggestions.
This is a non answer designed to avoid responsibility but not give adequate responsiblity to someone else.
It's called "let's you and him fight." Max could solve this problem. He chooses not to. He enjoys the chaos. What else could one conclude when some passive aggressive clone edits one of Roger's thread titles?
the cloneheads know Roger will get upset but they do it anyway. Only Max can solve this problem. He doesn't. Therefore, it continues. Any monkey could understand this.
I've always thought that the games Max plays are very interesting and amusing, frankly. But he is ultimately rsponsible for the endless arguing and abuse that is heaped on Roger at his request. Max feels superior and above it all when he watches this shit go on without changing the mudcat structure to make it stop. Simple as that.
