Re: Banished [re: JarethsGirl]  

In reply to:

Besides, if this is the case, why was the "late" TJNewton never banned?


Because TJ wasn’t half as annoying as DD74 and more than 2 people liked him.

Also, it took T.J.Newton 3 years and 3 months to make 3137 posts (an average of around 2.65 posts a day).

It took Diamondogz74 1 year and 1 month to make 3589 posts (an average of around 12.2 posts a day).

So DD74 was basically 4.6 times more annoying than TJ ever was.

In reply to:

I dunno. I guess this is how it all works. This is the only message board I visit, so I'm not well acquainted with the bannings.


And yet you say…

In reply to:

One of my favorite people of all TW was previously banned, and my whole TW experience would have been dimmer without him.


…which would seem to suggest that you’re more familiar than most with bannings (which are very rare). You don’t live in Norwich, do you? And who was that "favorite" poster who was previously banned?

Re: Banished [re: JarethsGirl]  

In reply to:

The people who are truly that annoyed by DD74 have probably already bozoed him, so what's the point of banning him?


Actually, it's been explained over a 100 times already why just bozoing him did not work.

I can vouch for that.

And T.J. Newton, while being a malicious moron, at least followed some basic nettiquette rules. And knew some interesting things about Bowie. And yet we're still happy that he's gone.

Maybe if I write this now, while drunk, you'll all understand.

The Curiously Strong TWer, of course [re: John_Q_Public]  

I guess I just mentioned TJ cuz I found him infinitely more annoying than DD74, who was tolerable, IMO.

Altoid is the only person I've ever heard of being banned from TW and he's the poster I was talking about. I believe he was banned before I became a regular here, so like I said, I don't know much about the circumstances/what grounds he was banned on. He ended up returning as CallardBowser (Callard and Bowser being the makers of Altoids), eventually revealing his true identity. Then I guess when he showed he could behave himself, they gave him his old user name back.

So as you can see I'm no expert, however when I said I wasn't well acquainted I was mostly trying to convey that I don't know how it works here as opposed to most other MBs.


Starlite - I didn't know that topic was broached before, as I didn't really bother to partake or even read the hate threads towards DD74. Though I should have guessed it had already been discussed.

I just think it's crazy to get so worked up about someone posting a lot or using really bad grammar or being uninteresting. There are much worse acts of idiocy to encounter in person on a daily basis. How do you people face the real world without having constant migraines and/or weekly strokes?

Err: Oh man, you gotta check this out.
Meatwad: Oh yeah baby, that's a neat car she's washing. You think that's a straight 6?
Err: I think I have a straight 6.
Inignot: Ooooo, Err. Your sexual innuendo is priceless.

Ironically enough, in much the same way.

In public places over which I've no control (ie, work or school), I never have to be around the idiots long enough for it to really bother me.

In my own social circles and hangouts, however, anyone that obnoxious would be thrown out immediately before even having the chance to cause any major disturbance. After all, no one socializes with someone who drives them crazy if they can help it, right?

But ddz74's annoyance factor would be more accurately paralleled by someone insinuating into a social space that's largely informal, but out of its inhabitors' control: say, a dorm.

There was one guy on my freshman dorm floor who was irritating beyond belief, and whom everyone hated. First they just made fun of him, then they tried to avoid him, then they tried to show him he wasn't wanted, and eventually they just complained to the Resident Assistant and dorm management enough for them to take disciplinary action.

If you get on everyone's nerves, eventually authority in a social environment will make you leave. Utlilitarian principle.

Maybe if I write this now, while drunk, you'll all understand.

Ah, but there lies the crux of this wholey shaky argument, I think I am right in saying that he had 44 Bozo's, which is a lot I agree, but what about the alter egos which make up a percentage of that figure?
No everyone was annoyed by him, just those posters who think they somehow own TW.

White Prism I may have been seemingly anti DD74 in my early posts, but as I came on here, with fun as my intention, I thought it was just harmless banter and not a fully fledged witch hunt. I never thought you'd all be quite so vicious.

Don't forget that this was a real human being, with real feelings. Do you not think that even he was playing along? Being devil's advocate, an agent provocateur even? Yet, you intelligent posters fell for it.

I apologise for the seriousness of this post, I will stop taking the tablets now.

I only get my monthly strokes since at a very young age I noticed that my skills in the field of verbal abuse were more than enough to get rid off odd morons and fuckwits littering the landscape. If those morons happened to be a majority, I simply left. If I can't beat them, I sure as hell won't join them.

I'm sure Roman Polanski would agree...

Too Serious new [re: CharlieManson]  

Well some posters take this board to seriously... that's my experience.
I actually was shocked how some of them really felt the need to claim how personal this board-life here was. I don't think a new generation posters will come here to fill up the old and forgotten. Due the stubern way of posting here. Over 2 years only fossiles will post here. With only the will to please themselves and disturb others.

Your dream is such a scary place to be trapped inside - Anathema

Occasionally yes. Most of the time however, it's all a big violent mess.

Re: Too Serious new [re: krettis]  

Nice addition to the signature there Krettis. Like it! DD74 will be missed by some but I'm sure, like me, they'll find a way to keep in touch with him anyway. A lesson for the rest of us...beware, your days may be numbered for any reason so make the most of TW while you're still able!

If you think we're gonna make it...
