That was before I knew there was an entire community devoted to making trial-and-error levels (a community which the host and judges were a part of), and although I still stand by my opinions, I knew there was no way I was going to be able to explain why that's bad level design to all of them.
As for that post, I wasn't making fun of your level, but rather how your sarcasm almost came back to bite you. The main reason everyone was making fun of you back then is because you said stupid crap like "levels shouldn't always be fair" (which is something most people will see as objectively wrong), and never really bothered to try and explain yourself, opting instead to be sarcastic (it didn't help that, at the time, the rules implied trial-and-error levels would score poorly, which further pitted things against you). The problem with sarcasm is that it only works if you're objectively and completely right and sarcasm is the only way to show how the other side is wrong; if you're wrong, your sarcasm will only make you look like a stubborn jerk.
In other words, even though, in the end, you were successful in changing this into a trial-and-error contest, I found it amusing that one of your sarcastic statements was almost true.
I've decided to cancel SMBXville Under Seige. After my 1st Senior year of college, I realized I wouldn't have enough time to devote to finishing my four-level episode. Apologies to those who cared.
