I think another problem is people creating threads just to show off something with no discussion at all (no comments on the link they post... just "OMG LOOK WHAT I FOUND ON YOUTUBE!").

i dont think thats a problem at all...alot of time those links are funny and amuzing. that is the sort of stuff that i think alot of people like. its just the personal attacks have just gotten way out of hand. i know we dont see many bans around here regarding people with high post counts but maybe we need to clean house a little... and if it has to start with me, then so be it...its all mikec's call but i think we need to get back to having fun again.

I even remember this being a lot of fun, still is to a large extent. Like has already been said, state an opinion get ready to be attacked.

99% pointless spam???? My best advice to you is too not go the Open Forum. I will remove you as a moderator.

I don't want any of my staff miserable here moderating. If any other moderators are unhappy I can remove them with no hard feelings.

^ - Is a nice guy who stands up for the little guy and almost always has something intellegent to say.

< - Someone who has faith in this forum and is going to stick around through thick and thin. Someone who is also glad that corrective action is being taken. Also someone who is sorry he made a stupid thread calling someone out, even if it was a joke that was taken wrong.

V - Hopefully someone who feels the same way as I do and is ready for this place to feel like home again.

Edit: Was originally directed at CaptnKill...but uh...MikeC will do.

I have been looking at the forums per members requests and have banned Zelda_Fan and and NV40 for 2 weeks. I had banned Omega53 for 2 weeks but after receiving this email I am banning him permanently.

To MikeC


What the **** man. NV40 is the biggest **** talker on the site always making personal comments towards ppl and I make one towards him and you ban me for 2 weeks. Thats some ****ed up ****. Why dont you deep throat nv40 some more since thats the only thing you seem to be good at since moderating def isnt one of them.
