novice I am kind of sick of you posting that "don't feed the trolls" phrase everywhere indiscriminantly.
In Raveshaw's thread
Raveshaw's opening wasn't really inflammatory.
I saw no one cursing at anyone.
I didn't see any strong feelings over anything.
I didn't see fundamental beliefs being ridiculed.
I didn't even see the thread starter complaining over and over again. In fact he didn't reply.
A majority of the posts were either neutral advice or a discussion on the pg rule/privacy between dudemus and kevlar.
I didn't even see the person it was directed at being overly emotional about it.
December 16 2008 1:25 AM EST
He's done it before though hasn't he?
December 16 2008 1:26 AM EST
I think the topic of this petition should be what should be put to everyone holding the title of QB and OP until new ones can be chosen.
December 16 2008 1:27 AM EST
Novice is just upset because someone stands up to him. If you go read the thread that he is crying about this time, he starts the insults with a line and saying you have to be *this tall to post, then tries to act all sarcastic and what not.
Novice grow up. You are the kind of guy who can dish it out but can't handle it coming back at you.
to see what the CB community supports.
December 16 2008 1:35 AM EST
Again Rawr, I've only come back at Novice when he's come at me. If he can't handle it then he shouldn't go there. The problem is, he's used to people doing like yourself and just puckering up. Again, I don't do that.
I'm learning how people who want to get things done in this game go about doing it though....
ex. declare war / bounty entire groups/clans
ex. posting a petition with a hidden agenda
ec. .... next?
Lol, welcome to the internet.

there's no point to this, and I can guarantee the posts in this thread are not indicative of the community. this is a popularity contest, don't be naive. Novice is resorting to where he knows he has a guaranteed win. And that I will give him, I have no chance vs. his friends who compromise a majority of the regular posters. >:)
Very coniving :)

The above, non-signature posts are the reasons for this post.
Personally? I would "... like to see chat and forums free from crude speech, insults, and trolling please sign your handle and nothing more. "
WolfEyes, AKA Godwolf.
December 16 2008 1:53 AM EST
Yes, GW's right. The non signature posts here are ridiculously inflammatory.
December 16 2008 2:00 AM EST
What's inflammatory is that one guy takes his fight to the community... and gets support. He knows he would and there it is. It's no surprise :)
December 16 2008 2:06 AM EST
Passive aggressive much? Supporting someone instantly becomes "puckering up" because they've got a reputation in the community? That's completely illogical.

The QBs and Ops have people standing against them, so they band together to make the rest of us have a horrid life? Pathetic.

"The QBs and Ops have people standing against them, so they band together to make the rest of us have a horrid life?"
How are you a Smith? :P
your own argument singles out QBs and Ops (Many of which are entirely uninvolved)... Then points out that you are "standing against them"... Yet it is a bad thing for them to "band together"?
People, it's not a conspiracy... It's a few people who like to let their emotions get the best of them from time to time then wanna take it personal when they are reprimanded, if even in the slightest way, for doing so...
If you touch the fire and burn yourself, we expect you know to avoid fire... Arguing that fire shouldn't be hot is just absurd. ^_^
(not a QB or an Op)

I would at least like to know what I banded up with the other QBs and Ops to do so that I can follow through on it.
December 16 2008 3:30 AM EST
SoxJr ... Agreed OB. What did I do, as an OP so I can make sure to keep doing it. I really hate generalizations. If you are going to call someone out Kevlar .. Say their name specifically. Don't go around calling everyone out. Thanks and have a great day!
December 16 2008 4:17 AM EST
What's this about anyway, can somebody link to whatever caused this thread to exist in the first place?
December 16 2008 5:24 AM EST
i haven't logged into chat recently, is it that bad?
Really sorry for posting off topic in your Thread Nov, but I'm echoing OB here;
"I would at least like to know what I banded up with the other QBs and Ops to do so that I can follow through on it."
If I'm gonna be smeared with a broad generalistion, I'd like to actually know what it is I've been generalised to have done.
December 16 2008 5:30 AM EST
If I'm following this soap opera properly GL there's a group of QBs, veteran players and chat ops who are stopping other players gettting ahead in the game.
Nobody told me about it, I see they forgot to involve you too.
December 16 2008 5:31 AM EST
Uh oh. You've offended GL. JW can't be far behind. Beware the sleeping giants who are bound to have a hangover now that you've awoken them! *tremble*
December 16 2008 5:32 AM EST
December 16 2008 5:38 AM EST
*flees in terror*!!!
Nah, no hangovers yet. ;) Term time finishes on friday, then it's a two week festive extravaganza of boozing, er celebration! ;)
As to all those thinking there some kind of elite/old guard/conspricy going on, please.

Foxtrot niner pluto 7!!!!!!!
I once went on a school outing where we were only allowed to swear if we did it phonetically. ;)
Foxtrot Oscar.... ;)
December 16 2008 6:04 AM EST
Funny otters indeed!
GL, what happened to Foxtrot Uniform......? :P
Leet speak wasn't allowed, that should have been Foxtrot Yankee. ;)
December 16 2008 8:28 AM EST
Why must you turn everything into a war?
December 16 2008 9:57 AM EST
Nobody said anything about war Rave, paranoid much?
Now I better NEVER see you troll again nov.
I demand more trolling and insults. Thank you, and good day, NOOBS!!!
DrAcO5676 - Neither Admin or QB, but was supposed to be given OP when NS gets the time.... Yes that was directed at you NS ^_^

what i would like to see however is the admins enforcing our long-standing rules against name-calling and personal attacks in forums. i know not what transpires in chat as i haven't been in it for years, but our forums have usually been a civil & enjoyable place.
December 18 2008 12:22 PM EST
I've been looking for this to happen as well; I understand the admins don't want to "choose sides," but I _do_ expect them to enforce forum rules.
