You are a very bitter person from the tone of your writing.
I thank veterans all the time, but when you decide to use it as a pedestal, I lose my respect for you. I still love and support all armed forces, but you, sir, are the bitter one. Especially since someone else got to you enough to use your service as a high horse.

That has nothing to do with the conversation. You don't get more points in a discussion because you were military.

My whole family is military. So what?
You attacked my character. I showed you that I understood sacrifice first hand. It seems from your writing that you only have an "accidemic" understanding of sacrifice. I detailed over the course of my posts with two examples of understanding first hand sacrifice. I also detailed a plan of action for communitcating with ones customers that would take little or no effort ( e.g. work from home). We can see that even though The community team was not very active since the 17th, Joveth took the time to let us know that they were still here. I thanked him for it. It is all germaine to the conversation. Since you were the impetus for this particular derailment. Your deflection and strawman have been found wanting.

If you disagree with his opinion, fine...but you take it so far to an extreme that you basically dare him to quit for expressing his opinion. You're free to disagree, you're not free to make this personal with insults like you did.
Thanks.

Hyperbole. I am well on the record as being a poor speller and even make fun of myself for it. Check my post history. You are trolling. I don't recall calling someone out for their spelling in this thread. Troll is and troll does.

We just put Game Update 1.6 on PTS, and we're still working to resolve various issues from 1.5 last week, so we're going as fast as we can!

Thanks for understanding!
Patching!, thanks for the info

I agree 100%. People forget how important family is sometimes and Thanksgiving is a great reminder of that, as well as a time to pigout and de-stress.

IMO everyone in America is entitled to a Thanksgiving.

Who wants to bet that all the yahoos complaining that people should get time off for a holiday would be the first to be up in arms if their TV went out during some football game and nobody was around to restore the service?

Working during holidays isn't reserved for cops, fire fighters, nurses and other essential services. Some of us do it all the time because that's our job. It's a requirment of almost all jobs in high tech as all high tech services run 7/24/365. A lot of completely non-essential data centers run 7/24/365 because they have to as they service the entire world, or because they need to run everyday to get your paycheck to you.

Some people love to work on holidays, even volunteer for it because the overtime is great.

People of different religious beliefs celebrate different holidays. What is a holiday to you, is a Tuesday to them.

TOR is a global service and American Thanksgiving is only observed in the U.S. Bioware is a Canadian operation and I'm sure if they had taken Canadian Thanksgiving holiday off, people would be freaking out.
