Haha Larry David.

I've never had a problem with any of you. Only R3 (the bastard!), that one gal, and occasional annoyances with Dragline.

Sounds like Shaw is leaving because of home problems. His wife lost her job, etc. Only by going what he posted publicly on this BBS.

I also really like Libmans posts. They are very content thick and also have a very liberty oriented focus.

I think Ian believes in forgiveness and not holding a vendetta.

It's bad for your health.

I'd like to hear his opinion on it though.

No. I'm angry about Alex. I'll be here just like always, and the second he steps over the line, he's gone again, until Ian makes another mistake or deletes the BBS, which is probably eventually gonna happen.

I'm on Facebook, with the same avatar I have here, if people want to socialize with me.

Implying that I do. How many times has Alex started shit? Dozens? Hundreds?

Whatever. He's your problem now, just like the last time. I left that jackass alone for months, before he had his hissy fit and started threatening to kill people.

I'll go right back to doing exactly that, until the next time he has one too many and threatens someone.

Not going to tell you what to do Shaw, but do you think your reaction is a bit much?

No. I've barely been here in almost a year anyhow. Isn't much to post one or two fewer posts a day at this point.

EDIT: Also this.

That's kinda the point.

Since you started working on the movie (and after), you've mostly disappeared from the BBS.

So why try so hard to keep someone that really wants to be here away when you don't care to be here.

What do you mean, "Try so hard to keep someone away."?

I've done nothing. I expressed my displeasure and my intent to minimize my interactions as a result. I haven't "Done" anything. If he does something vile enough to breach the BBS TOS, he's gone again. You really have to try, to do that. He will. I fucking guarantee it.

Like I said, he's all yours.

In a few months or a year when Ian, on a whim, up and deletes the BBS without notice to anybody

I wouldn't mind if it got deleted now. He obviously just proved he doesn't care about it enough not to let someone who threatens to initiate force reside on it.

I'm halfway there. I half believe that this is Ian punishing the mods for not living in NH.

Thank God you mods don't live in NH, then it really would be a clique. I remember being on this BBS back in 2006/2007, it seemed more lively then, now it seems quiet, like a ghost town. I can hear the wind whistling through the trees, or maybe it's just blowing through my empty head. Maybe Alex will liven things up, or more likely, go off the deep end, again. I've often wondered if the level of spit and venom displayed on this BBS sometimes has sent potential converts/newcomers running for the exit. Not that I want to pussify anything but I can see some people coming here and going "Jesus Christ, what the fuck?!" Especially if someone is having a rant, you'd think this was 4chan or something.

I really wish I had the time to devote to my "troll meter" idea.  What you just said is a good point.  However, ignoring trolls is another way to scare off visitors though because they can take over a message forum like a flesh-eating bacteria and totally change the intended atmosphere.  They are a real problem that has to be dealt with if you want a forum to fulfill its intended purpose.

Well, I enjoy most of your posts John and I think the board would be worse off without your posts!

Once you decide you don't give a fuck, it gets a lot easier to keep a civil tone.
