Twitter being the wonderful service it is nipped that in the butt pretty quickly and I noticed that David's retweet was gone just as quickly (make sense since the original is gone). I was satisfied with this outcome and was ready to write him off as another child in the community throwing a fit, trying to get attention, or something like that but then I started some research to see if I could connect David to the number which prank called me the other night from (609-233-7***) and I realized that David is one of the developers which I had in the past taken the time to setup and promote a collection for so he could upgrade his phone and hopefully help contribute to the community.
Between the conversation below and his recent tweets, we've had no interactions and he has had nothing but hear-say to base any change of opinion on. So easily swayed is his opinion and emotions and the extreme difference amazes me. "You're awesome Rainabba" to being so angry about something he's not even involved in and never checked facts on, that he released my personal information to the Internet without explaining in the least, to anyone why he was upset with me let alone why that was an appropriate retaliation (as if it could be).
I found the conversation below and though it was appropriate to share so that anyone who'd seen his tweets and wasn't sure how to interpret them, OR who considered using them as a basis to form an opinion of me; could gain some perspective on him. The last few lines are the most significant. The rest is just for context.
He is only one of quite a few developers I've setup these donations for by the way and they have in all but perhaps one case, gone DIRECTLY to the developer. I only setup a page to explain the circumstances, provided the tools (site, software, collection plugin which I had to put for myself, and of course the time it takes to create the page and it's contents.)
If you follow me via @AllDroid, you might also find it interesting to note that I've also done this for @_mrbirdman_ and @Drod2169 on at least one, but I believe more than one occasion.
Let me emphasize that I only do this so that you as a reader can better decide how to interpret his malicious tweets and I wish I didn't have to make public what should be private. Lately though it seems that others have no respect for the idea of privacy and this makes me WANT to care less. I hope defending my reputation in this way isn't viewed in a negative light, but I think those who would see it that way are likely not those who I am concerned with reading this.
