which at the time, was some effort
By winding up some kids on some anime game forum. Nothing awful, just taking the piss out of their "Guys I really feel like I have an inner spirit/magic powers!" drivel.
The site admins didn't have the power to ban accounts (this forum was one of a collection of game forums; there must have been higher admin accounts somewhere) but only IP address. Because it was in the dial-up days, I'd just reconnect to circumvent the ban.
They couldn't figure out how I was doing it, so took to locking every thread I posted in to stop me. So I posted in all of them and they ended up locking every single thread pre-emptively, to stop me posting things like "You're a bit dim." I have no idea why they didn't just delete the posts. Maybe the site was as broken as this one and they couldn't.
Neither big nor clever, but an amusing way to pass a rainy afternoon, at the time.
It wasn't, but if I see the New PM thing at the top of the page, I don't know if I'd be upset.
One of the bans were for a picture of a penis. My housemate at the time noticed I had left my self logged in on his computer, decided it would be great to photoshop my head on to a mid-op transsexual's naked body. Zuckerburg wasn't a fan
I think it was because I said that I liked Primal Scream, on my profile.
It was over a trivial dispute between the lad running our Xpert Eleven league and one of the mods off the board. We all sided with the lad running the league and she banned everyone that was in the league then. I'm still banned to this day.
actually, I just deleted an account, because I thought it was a troll's second account, since it had the same IP address as the troll. Turned out it was his workmate, with both of them posting from the same work IP.
Banned a few on the Franz Ferdinand forums though, crazy bitches.
*******, though ******* didn't seem bothered by it but **** in his wisdom deleted the account. The ****
at long bloody last
Cos I'd love to tell *** that he's a massive **** and literally no one likes him since he uploaded those photos of ************* sitting on ********
And maybe run home to your mum, sniffling?
but, yes, I did see my mum and also my family as they all came to the hospital
i stand by it
Over not very much at all, other than low level give-as-good-as-you-get antagonism towards some of the mod clique. My belligerence was as a result of my boredom with the site anyway, so no real loss. An IP block relating to my old work, so pretty pointless anyway.
offset guitars, it is a shame it was my favourite guitar forum.
but then ******** ******ed me, and I realised the error of my ***s.
I dont want to talk about it
some second hand toilet paper...?
for calling a French member of the forum a cheese eating surrender monkey, entirely in jest. Allowed me to gain some appreciation of the "Americans don't do irony" truism I guess. Banned innumerable times a decade ago on SA, mostly for tripping over the absolutely ridiculous list of rules they keep. Banned for two months on another for "sockpuppeting", i.e. using multiple accounts for comic effect. Banned permanently from an Elder Scrolls forum for calling a prominent admin a fat, anal, joyless, backwoods sour-mouthed fuckwit. No regrets.
I am a figure of authority on this website.
a fat, anal, joyless, backwoods sour-mouthed fuckwit to others
maybe too internet, some may say
for posting loads of spammy troll threads
Literally WHAT THE FUCK?
But I still have no clue why or who did it. I think it was be because I posted from CGs computer?
It must have been around 2000. We'd been to see Aphex Twin the weekend before at Ocean, and me and a friend we're trolling, making stupid comments like "Only one of the Aphex Twins turned up - how do I get a refund" etc.
you insensitive cunt
We have since discussed that being a possible factor in the banning.
and I doubt Richard would have cared had he seen your post, would just assume you're having a laugh. They probably just thought you were spamming.
molineuxmix for persistent trolling.
I had a character with a backstory.
There's a few threads calling for me to be reinstated.
and then soon after made like 3 new accounts and joined in various dramaz ultimately leading to RIP ;__;
The new board is borrrring so far
about 5 years ago when I had a fake username 'Frances Heart'. She got some attention from der ladz
for making lar ulrich jokes when a guy was trying to sell a cardboard cut out of him :P
Prior to that the rock city forums once
