Joe is totally right, he could have probably put it different. But Dan was being an ass. They have made up now though. But Dan was talking out of his ass on this. EA even used their quote on "Believe the hype!" So it's legit
I agree that Dan was the one starting it, but Joe is not right, he is as much in the fault as Dan is, after all both are grown men.
He had plenty of opportunity to close it and he could just have been the bigger man and put Dan on ignore.
If you read the tweet Joe told Dan more than once to stop but he was like a houndog over him.
Yes he could ignore him, but that might sound too like he was chicken out, censoring Dan, not giving the right of counter reply, or giving him the reason… it could be seen bad in many senses and for many reasons.
And? how hard is it to put someone on ignore? not that hard right or simply just do a mental ignore.
Also of course Joe wouldn't seem like a chicken, after all its two grown men not 2 kids in the local school yard having a fight, if Joe would have said "hey Dan this argument is so childish from your side that i'm going to throw you on ignore" he would have held the high ground and also painted Dan as a petty guy, But he didn't and just kept the fight going and going, and in the end just seem every bit as petty as Dan.
Which actually doesn't surprise me about someone who named themselves "angryjoe"
