Gerbil
 
Who banned him? Why? He was the heart and soul of this place, sad as that may sound. Ok so maybe he was a jerk to anyone new, but it was kinda like a hazing thing, if you didn't fight back, he'd play nice. The amount of posting going on this this place has dropped without his presence. It's depressing. Bring back the all mighty Pasta Master!!!!

Alia 11-06-2003 03:44 AM

He was the life of the place. True. But some people didn't understand his brand of wit, and the "Suicide Bomb" kind of nailed it. So, geez. I can see the sides of this.

- Filthy language directed at other users is unacceptable. The continual mutual provocation between him and the people who would drop in was annoying and unnecessary.

On the other hand,

- He kept this forum from complete death. No one else seemed to care about it much except for the sake of irking him. I thought he was really funny most of the time. And thus on.

I wouldn't mind if they decided to let him come back; however, I don't think they will.

Ray Jones 11-06-2003 06:01 AM

as i see it i tried not to "fight back" and as i see it too he didnt played nicer then.
but yes, if he wasnt all like "go away. you're not welcome here." he may have had his funny moments and i think it was funny though ..
..

i think it wouldnt be so hard to keep this forum from death if not so many users had been driven away just because they tried to try this forum.
..
it is possible that more users will come and try again when samNmax2 is on the road. (i just downloaded the trailer.. :D)
plus i think i will come here from time to time.. maybe i even post a topic.. or post a post without smilies so its waaaay to early to bury this forum. ;)
..
anyways i wouldnt mind SG back here again.
how errmm.. patethic

:p

I didn't have anything against Gerbil per se. :dozey: But when I (a *Star Wars type*) wouldn't go away...he pushed the behavior over the line. It was this sort of thing that got him banned.

We need another grim wiseass to fill his underwear shoes. I nominate Ray.

:max: Why not? He can be abusive if you just give him a chance...

RoyTordesLegend 11-07-2003 12:10 PM

Skinkie, when Gerbil was moderator, he chose to edit my first ever post to say "If you keep talking, you stupid f*ck, any post you decide to write will be instantly deleted.". Because of this, I asked for him to be banned, he wasn't banned but was de-modded. Good enough I thought, let's give the guy a second chance. Then he repeated his foul mouthed hostile behaviour, so some of us decided to play him at his own game (but without the swearing)....he proved he could dish it out, but couldn't take it in return, and when we wouldn't just "f*ck off" like he asked us, he decided to go and give some abuse to the Admins who had de-modded him after his original outburst.

I wouldn't object to him coming back, as long as he realised he can't just tell virtual strangers to "f*ck off", just because he's decided they are a "dumb ass" based on their first post.

I'm doing my usual trick of posting two messages instead of one, 'cause I think this deserves a post all to itself.

This is very true.....think how many people have been driven away by Gerbil. Who's to say that given a chance they wouldn't have proved to be really good for the forum.

.....anyway, I thought Gerbil had already re-registered?

I hang out in the Star Wars forums, and I'm accepted.

And on another note where's sheaday6 been? He's entertaining too.

edlib 11-07-2003 02:55 PM

I never had any desire to see him banned,.. just to maybe tone it down a little bit.

There's newbie hazing,.. then there's out-and-out abuse. As entertaining as he often was, it's my feeling that Gerbil frequently skirted that line... mainly because he continued to drag it out long after everyone else had given it up.

I hope he comes back, but with the understanding that the rest of us are unlikely to disappear anytime soon.

Ernil 11-12-2003 11:50 PM

I never exchanged civil words with the guy, but wouldn't mind it if he came back. Though he was cheap and dirty at it, he was a debater at heart. Which is fun.


By the way: What exactly did he say in his suicide post? I can't seem to access it.

Skinkie 11-13-2003 02:02 AM

Whoa, suicide post? What? I haven't heard of this, enlighten me.

Alia 11-13-2003 02:18 AM

He started a thread called "Suicide Bomb" in the feedback forums. I don't know what it said, presumably some very nasty things. (Understatement? perhaps.) It got edited, he got banned.

Ray Jones 11-13-2003 05:37 AM

oh.. i read it..

:D:D

it was something like

Skinkie 11-13-2003 06:58 PM

No he was my partner in crime for invading other forums.

sheaday6 11-13-2003 10:50 PM

Ray Jones 11-14-2003 07:53 AM

Yay! The forum isn't dead after all...

Skunkie: Aw, you can join me and Ray if you want. :D We do remarkably the same thing.

:max: Hallelujahgobble!

Skinkie 11-15-2003 03:48 AM

I have to admit, I just don't understand those photos. Very confusing.

Zoom Rabbit 11-15-2003 04:05 AM

Picting my nose
 
It is a bit abstract, I'll grant you. It's all explained here.

Say, who brought whiskey? :max:

Skinkie 11-15-2003 04:27 AM

That clears it up a bit. Still the meaning of the guy in the aluminum suit eludes me, but whatever.

Zoom Rabbit 11-15-2003 08:12 AM

*Duct tape* suit, yo...
 
Well, that's what the whiskey is for! :dozey: Whenever me and the boys break out the Kentucky sour mash, before the end of the night some damn fool winds of creeping around the bushes outside of the police station wearing nothing but duct tape...

Must I connect the dots for you? ;)

did you ever notice the slooow loading speed of his picting links??

actually zoom has contract with your isp and maybe those sites where this pictures are stored... means.. you pay more for longer online times .. and add up the clicked account for those sites..

ahh.. a new complete confusing post from zoom .. oh.. some of his weird link thingies!! .. .. *clickety*


strange, isnt it?

:D

Skinkie 11-16-2003 03:50 AM

I think the only contract he has is with Satan! BAH!

Ray Jones 11-16-2003 09:54 AM

hehe. that would be very stupid from satan. everyone knows that it can it can be a big mistake to make contracts with zoom. people have lost their sanity because of that .. :D everyone knows that. except for some isp's and website peoples.

they're soooo lost.

:D:D

Zoom Rabbit 11-17-2003 07:31 AM

The gentle art of obfuscation
 
Contracts? I'm a free agent, yo! :max:

Kylilin 11-18-2003 04:18 AM

You should ask Pink Monkey about contracts made with Zoom...if he still exists...

Zoom Rabbit 11-18-2003 08:11 AM

CIA time
 
*(Abruptly kills Kylilin to keep him quiet.)*

:)

Ray Jones 07-26-2006 02:01 PM

I think it is time for Pink Monkey to appear and give some explanations. I mean after all..

Samnmax221 07-26-2006 02:10 PM

Ray if you don't cut it out, you're gonna go in the Grater Closet!

itchythesamurai 07-26-2006 05:53 PM

I agree, Ray would make a mighty fine cheese. But I think I appreciate him more as a person right now.

Shmargin 08-05-2006 01:18 PM

Ah old post, gotcha.
