You have just entered room "Rumbles chat."
Gaherfindahl has entered the room.
Gaherfindahl: Is Troy gonna be an unmitigated
TanithRyudo: looks like it
TanithRyudo: still hoping not, though
Gaherfindahl: Damn, that sucks.
TanithRyudo: hope springs eternal
Gaherfindahl: Well, if they sanitize the Paris/Helen
elopement, I'm gonna be real unhappy.
TanithRyudo: I talked to mew earlier today
TanithRyudo: we agreed that it would've made
much more sense if they'd casted Orlando
Bloom as Patroclus
Gaherfindahl: Hmm..that casting never occurred to
TanithRyudo: then they'd actually get down
and admit that Paris was a frickin' villain in
TanithRyudo: instead of the Orlando worship
they're doing to attract more money
Gaherfindahl: Yeah. And this villainization of
Agamemnon doesn't sit well either.
PhrozenWSU: Well, they all were flawed.
TanithRyudo: as Patroclus, they'd get the
money from the Orli fans, plus have him cast
as a "good guy"
Gaherfindahl: Yes, Mike all the chars were flawed,
some so more than others.
TanithRyudo: plus Bloom has proven that he's a
perfect candidate for subtextual homosexual
themes with the other male lead
TanithRyudo: consider the vast amounts of
Legolas or Will/Jack slash
Gaherfindahl: Okay, that consideration is a minor
one for me. :-P
Pellcia: *Kicks computer* Dumb stupid slow
PhrozenWSU: If anybody should be the hero it
should be Hector.
Gaherfindahl: But the dynamics would play quite
well for that particular audience.
PhrozenWSU: Achilles was an asshole.
TanithRyudo: well they are doing pro-hector
PhrozenWSU: Paris was a coward.
Gaherfindahl: Hector comes closest to being a hero
TanithRyudo: since I think they're gonna mess
up the timeline so that the achilles/hector
fight is gonna happen at the climax in the end
of the movie
TanithRyudo: *after* the fall of troy
Gaherfindahl: Okay, that's just god-damned wrong.
TanithRyudo: oh... and their "wooden horse"
looks like a friggin' armadillo
Pellcia: If I'm lucky...I'll be signed up for Keenspace
by the end of the fouth or fifth renaissance.
TanithRyudo: if I was athena in the
movie-verse, I'd smite them all just for daring
to give me shoddy goods
Gaherfindahl: It seemed somewhat influenced by
images of ROTK's Grond.
TanithRyudo: grond was based on a
VCreed33 has entered the room.
Gaherfindahl: Sorry, just my opinion.
TanithRyudo: the horse is supposedly a gift to
PhrozenWSU: It should be a big laquered wooden
VCreed33: this laughter doing skits on SNL is
TanithRyudo: making it look like something
outta hades is not gonna look good
TanithRyudo: especially when you can just look
at any historical relic of grecian origins and
see that they at least have artistic ability
TanithRyudo: and taste
Gaherfindahl: I grasp your point...doing a credible
Wooden Horse was always going to be a
PhrozenWSU: Unlike the Romans.
Gaherfindahl: Of course, taste is largely unkown
TanithRyudo: they could at least make it look
something like the classic grecian art styles
TanithRyudo: instead of... like an armadillo
TanithRyudo: a burnt and charred armadillo
PhrozenWSU: Well, it has the horse hair spines....
PhrozenWSU: Actually, it looks like old bleached
TanithRyudo: you seen the pic?
PhrozenWSU: Yes. Old aged wood turns grey
Gaherfindahl: So, from what I understand, the
gods aren't gonna be in the movie?
TanithRyudo: the head looks nothing like a
TanithRyudo: and the body...
TanithRyudo: looks like a giraff crossed with an
elephant or something
TanithRyudo: Gah: nope
TanithRyudo: they're making thetis a seer
PhrozenWSU: I wonder if they are gonna CGI the
towers of Troy
Gaherfindahl: Okay, I foresee that I will not be an
easy sell on this film.
VCreed33: Achilles' heel?
TanithRyudo: probably not... w/o magic/divine
stuff, there's not much they'd need excessive
Gaherfindahl: Army/crowd scenes?
TanithRyudo: well... that
Gaherfindahl: The big fleet?
PhrozenWSU: Well, they CGIed Rome for
TanithRyudo: mew was blowing a gasket 'cause
the trojan army in the trailers were using
PhrozenWSU: Everybody used Greecian tactics....
VCreed33: well Achilles be at all mystical?
TanithRyudo: they're cutting out all the gods
TanithRyudo: i don't think they're gonna even
reference his (literal) immortality
VCreed33: he's just really luck *rolleyes*
Gaherfindahl: That just rips the guts outa of the
story..like trying to imagine a 'historicized' LOTR.
PhrozenWSU: The roman legions were basically
Phalanxes with better equipment.
TanithRyudo: just really good at fighting i guess
TanithRyudo: they're painting him as the
greatest warrior in the world,
TanithRyudo: Mg: but they came after
PhrozenWSU: Namely the Gladius Hispania and
TanithRyudo: Gah: *shudder*
Gaherfindahl: Sorry. that's how I feel about an
Iliad without Olympians.
Gaherfindahl: There's no real thematic
PhrozenWSU: Tani: Troy was more advanced for
TanithRyudo: I'm getting the impression that
they're gonna be anti-divinity (anti-religion?)
TanithRyudo: the website had some bit about
Priam going like "his faith in the gods would
be his undoing" or somelike
VCreed33: oh F***!!
VCreed33: Robin's father now knows Batman's
PhrozenWSU: Creed: Everybody knows who
Batman is now.
Gaherfindahl: Gad, what more could go wrong
with this picture?
Level100FFChar: Honestly how hard could it
be to figure out??
VCreed33: phro: that's not a good thing though
Level100FFChar: Robin I mean not Batman.
TanithRyudo: Gah: plenty... but we all have our
Gaherfindahl: Mine grow ever dimmer.
TanithRyudo: at least all the bad news aren't
PhrozenWSU: Maybe they will do Thesius next.
TanithRyudo: if we go in with really, really low
expectations, it might pleasantly surprise us
Gaherfindahl: That's our faint hope talking, I think.
TanithRyudo: they really should've picked the
PhrozenWSU: Though Alexander the Great is being
developed by two companies.
TanithRyudo: it's themes and story and
characterizations are simply too removed
from hollywood stereotypes
TanithRyudo: they'd prolly do much better
with the odyssey
TanithRyudo: since it's much more
Gaherfindahl: Even the Iliad is difficult to
compress into two hours.
PhrozenWSU: One of the films is by Oliver Stone
TanithRyudo: Gah: well, we're not just talking
about covering all the details
TanithRyudo: we're talking about getting the
main cornerstones *right*
Gaherfindahl: I don't expect a doctoral dissertation,
PhrozenWSU: with DiCaprio as Alexander
PhrozenWSU: DiCaprio can't look Greek without
massive plastic surgery.
TanithRyudo: thing is that the black/white
right/wrong good/bad associations in the
classical iliad is completely removed from any
of the romantic tangents
TanithRyudo: hollwood simply can't cope with
TanithRyudo: with their romance = good and
those opposing must therefore be villains
PhrozenWSU: I am still hoping for Trafalgar.
Gaherfindahl: Well, the Iliad is a war story pure
and simple...romance takes a back seat.
TanithRyudo: romance also being completely
TanithRyudo: they're gonna emphasize the
whole briseis thing... just know they are...
Gaherfindahl: Y'know, I always felt sorry for
her..she really gets treated shoddily in the Iliad.
TanithRyudo: b/c it reflects on the reality of the
TanithRyudo: you can have the iliad and
divorce it from the culture of the times and
go by modern morality and beliefs
TanithRyudo: the ancient greek culture barely
admits that women are sentient beings
TanithRyudo: much less that they get any say in
anything worth of note
PhrozenWSU: Most cultures at that time did.
TanithRyudo: which is why it's totally a
hollywood bastardization to give briseis an
emphasized role, much less actual friggin
romance, with achilles
Gaherfindahl: And with no gods in the story,
female roles will just be shafted completely.
TanithRyudo: not shafted exactly...
hollywood-ized... though I'm not sure which
PhrozenWSU: Heh. Master & Commander had one
female in the whole movie and that was only for a
TanithRyudo: and they did fine with it
Gaherfindahl: No scheming Hera or wise athena or
motherly thetis..no one who can help drive the
story from an independent POV.
TanithRyudo: i like M&C
PhrozenWSU: I am surprised they were able to get
away with it
TanithRyudo: i've no idea where hollywood
gets this incredibly stupid idea that female
roles must be forced into films that have no
place for them purely for PC reasons
Gaherfindahl: Hollywood execs are mostly men
who haven't lived in the real world for decades.
PhrozenWSU has left the room.
TanithRyudo: or just money grubbers who
think you have to have a bust line and tongue
action to get any decent box office for thier
PhrozenWSU has left the room.
Gaherfindahl: Too true. You could have
amputated Arwen right outta the films and
improved them vastly.
TanithRyudo: definitely... the A/A plot was
TanithRyudo: and contrived... it was so
confusing to hear them randomly make up
stuff about her supposed immortality and
how to lose it
Gaherfindahl: That linked to the Ring thing?
TanithRyudo: yeah... that was outta left field
TanithRyudo: at the time i had the admittedly
hysterical urge to throttle elrond and scream
"THIS is why you shouldnt've kept Vilya,
Gaherfindahl: Heh. yeah.
VCreed33: "Rumple Foreskin", good one
Gaherfindahl: What are you talking about, V?
VCreed33: SNL's "Adult Film Awards"
PhrozenWSU has left the room.
TanithRyudo: we have a ghost in here...
Gaherfindahl: We need an exorcist.
TanithRyudo: don't think anyone qualifies
Gaherfindahl: As an atheist, definitely not.
PhrozenWSU has left the room.
VCreed33: I have a tattoo of a cross, if it helps
PhrozenWSU has entered the room.
TanithRyudo: fifth time's the charm?
PhrozenWSU: AIM wouldn't let me invite myself.
PhrozenWSU: Something like that
Gaherfindahl: Well, welcome back.
PhrozenWSU: Derby was a mess today
Gaherfindahl: Have I mentioned I have a dog in my
VCreed33: eww, they picked some odd colors to
censor blood with on TBS
TanithRyudo: what kinda dog?
TanithRyudo: how old?
Gaherfindahl: A collie hybrid of some sort.
Gaherfindahl: Year old. name is Nemo.
PhrozenWSU: Heh. Has it tried to herd your cats
Gaherfindahl: The cats are upstairs.
Gaherfindahl: The house has been divided into two
sections, one of which is puppy free.
TanithRyudo: by choice or did you put them up
PhrozenWSU: Has it tried to herd you yet?
Gaherfindahl: By choice.
TanithRyudo: Nemo? by any chance female?
TanithRyudo: got any pics?
Gaherfindahl: Neutered if that helps. :-P
Gaherfindahl: Um, I'll ask Cougar.
PhrozenWSU: For herding instinct? Nope.
TanithRyudo: have 'er put it up on GJ so mew
can see it too
Gaherfindahl: I will.
Gaherfindahl: I hope he don't chew on my cowboot
PhrozenWSU: Collies aren't real big chewers.
Gaherfindahl: Even a little bit of chewing will
incur my wrath, or at least my dismay.
TanithRyudo: hehe... moreso dismay, methinks
TanithRyudo: you big softie you ;-)
Gaherfindahl: Stop reading my kittie related
TanithRyudo: doesn't change the truth tho ;-)
Gaherfindahl: Now that I think of it, he can't chew
my boots after all...they're in the no puppy section.
TanithRyudo: how 'bout just yer toes then? :-P
Gaherfindahl: Bah, one day I shall surprise you
with my inner fierceness.
PhrozenWSU: Depends on the dog.
PhrozenWSU: Some dogs are really mouthy.
TanithRyudo: maybe when the devil starts
PhrozenWSU: *points to demonic bobsled
TanithRyudo: difficult since we're both atheists
PhrozenWSU: Just because you don't believe in
something doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
Gaherfindahl: Well, I've had a dog try to chew on
me for reals..that's why I quit my job for the Post
Office years ago.
TanithRyudo: for real?
Gaherfindahl: Yes. I used to deliver junk male and
I had a german shepherd try to rip the mail bag
TanithRyudo: junk male....
Gaherfindahl: Still got the scar from where he
bloodied up ne of my fingers.
PhrozenWSU: Freud was right. :-D
TanithRyudo: poor dearie
Gaherfindahl: I lived. But I had the post office
terminate all mail service to trhe owner's house
until the dog was removed
TanithRyudo: maybe the dog was trying to
attack the intruder you were stuffing into the
SirChristopher55 has entered the room.
Gaherfindahl: Possibly. O:-)
PhrozenWSU: Hmm. That is an awesome quote to
use. "These are the burning times, the years of
Gaherfindahl: Still, I was sick of the job anyhow,
so that convinced me to give it up.
TanithRyudo: getting bitten by a cerberus
wannabe would convince me too
Gaherfindahl: Once I had a kitten divebomb me
from a tree on a route..he fell right into the bag.
Gaherfindahl: It was so hilarious..if it hadn't
happened to me, I'd never belive it.
Pellcia: Hmmm...I g2g
Pellcia: later all
TanithRyudo: smart kitty, to wait until it had a
safe landing net before jumping... ;-)
Gaherfindahl: He landed on my shoulder, skidded
down my arm and dropped into the bag. his owner
gave me a brownie when I brought him to the
TanithRyudo: heh... so it ended up good for
you and the kitty. smart kitty! ;-)
Gaherfindahl: I never did figure out why he jumped
me..I musta outweighed it by about170 pounds.
Gaherfindahl: Talk about ambition.
SirChristopher55: It did have the element of
surprise, as well as the high ground
TanithRyudo: i think it was just looking for a
safe landing rather than wait for the fire
department to rescue it...?
SirChristopher55: That cat's a tactical genius
SirChristopher55: Someday it will lead the
feline revolution, and I will salute it as my
PhrozenWSU: High ground is only good if you
have ranged weapons or are defending.
SirChristopher55: Or for ambushes from above
Pellcia has left the room.
Gaherfindahl: Well, it did have a stealth
advantage-I was suprised as hell. :-P
VCreed33: and prep time
SirChristopher55: And a backup plan -- if the
vicious clawed death failed, it could cutely
tumble into your bag and allay all suspicion
SirChristopher55: A devious, cunning master of
TanithRyudo: ha! :-)
Gaherfindahl: Yeah, I was completely fooled by
Gaherfindahl: Now if only the brownie had been
TanithRyudo: but why? i'm sure it could tell that
you're already a loyal follower ;-)
Gaherfindahl: I think I justsortof broadcast that to
TanithRyudo: prolly why it jumped you and
not just any other random... passerby... or
SirChristopher55: Is the forum search function
not working for anyone else?
Gaherfindahl: Works fine for me.
VCreed33: not working for me
Gaherfindahl: Can't help you, alas.
Gaherfindahl: Are you getting an error message of
PhrozenWSU: That was a stupid commercial.
VCreed33: what commercial?
PhrozenWSU: "You shouldn't smoke cigerettes
because if you drop it on something flammable it
might start a fire."
VCreed33: heh, sounds like that may have been
made by one of the tobacco companies
PhrozenWSU: Nope Truth commercial
VCreed33: who's Truth sponsored by?
PhrozenWSU: Basically, the Tobacco companies
are forced to give money to the anti-smoking
PhrozenWSU: So they let Truth guys run wild.
TanithRyudo: is munchy still listening in here?
Gaherfindahl: He hasn't said anything in ages.
PhrozenWSU: Are you going to tell him off for
PhrozenWSU: Seriously, it is getting annoying.
TanithRyudo: hey, Mg... can you IM munchy
and tell me what his away message
Gaherfindahl: Okay, be back in a few minutes.
PhrozenWSU: Auto response from

the dark with the cute music. Begone
TanithRyudo: ah.... so the last line is twigged to
whoever is sending
TanithRyudo: just checking

TanithRyudo: we need a new topic, I think

VCreed33: the movie?
PhrozenWSU: At 1 am
SirChristopher55: It's been episodes from this
season for me
TanithRyudo: arg... board... so... slow...
TanithRyudo: raise of hands, please... how
many here think munchy should be made to
curtail his excessive low-quality posting?
VCreed33: there's only 6 people in here?
TanithRyudo: just getting a feel
PhrozenWSU: *raises hand*
TanithRyudo: not making any decisions yet,
specially since moderation ain't a democracy
to begin with
VCreed33: oops, that was supposed to be a :-(,
not a question
VCreed33: *raises hand*
TanithRyudo: you can invite more if you
Metasarc has entered the room.
TanithRyudo: hm... i see
SirChristopher55: OT is one thing, but he pops
off ALL THE TIME
VCreed33: raise you hand Sarc
SirChristopher55: With no apparent intention to
actually participate in the substance of the
Metasarc: Lemmie guess...Munchy?
TanithRyudo: he hasn't been really listening to
any of the subtle hints i've dropped or the
occassional deleted post (much)
Metasarc: [Raises hand.]
AnOnymOu5 has entered the room.
TanithRyudo: is the board dead to anyone else?
Metasarc: To me.
TanithRyudo: le sigh
SirChristopher55: Yeah, I got nuthin
AnOnymOu5: Yeah, it's moving in super slow
AnOnymOu5: And making me sad
TanithRyudo: le sigh again
VCreed33: I dunno, not on the board
AnOnymOu5: Creed and his whole "I can be online
without being at the board" thing
Gaherfindahl: Back again.
TanithRyudo: um... what's so hard about that?
VCreed33: I'm downloading..things
Gaherfindahl: Weird, Forum's still working for
TanithRyudo: i'm checking GJ right now... not
that anything's going on there...
Gaherfindahl: I posted earlier. :-P
TanithRyudo: lemme check friends
TanithRyudo: oh... already saw that one
SirChristopher55: It's good for me now
TanithRyudo: thought you meant a new one
Gaherfindahl: Ah no, not a new one.
TanithRyudo: *checks* yeah, working now
Gaherfindahl: Sasami surprised us..she came
downstairs during supper and sat on top of the
Gaherfindahl: Nemo ignored her.
Gaherfindahl: She's never came that close to a dog
before..I could tell she was thinking about coming
into the living room.
TanithRyudo: did she?
Metasarc: okay, did I miss something?
Gaherfindahl: Miss something?
TanithRyudo: Nemo = dog that is temporarily
staying at Gah's place
TanithRyudo: Sasami = one of Gah's cats
Metasarc: Never mind, just confused.
Gaherfindahl: Cougarwill post up pics of Nemo
later on GJ.
Gaherfindahl: And during supper he slobbered on
my foot! Thanks alot for even thinking about that.
TanithRyudo: I guess it was in betwee chewing
your shoes and chewing your toes... ;-)
Gaherfindahl: You'd fine that amusing, wouldn't
TanithRyudo: well, okay... no...
Eagle299 has entered the room.
TanithRyudo: *hides grin*
Gaherfindahl: Uh huh.
Eagle299: Whats up all?
VCreed33: wow, Soldier has how a fight in my
Gaherfindahl: Ah well, I must concede the
obvious..I have no spine where these beastiesare
TanithRyudo: well... that's not a bad thing
TanithRyudo: *hugs Gah*
Gaherfindahl: Heh. Thanks.
Gaherfindahl: Anyhow, back to Munchy (never
answered your question).
Gaherfindahl: He's a pain, but I dunno if more
aggressive moderating would be a help in his case.
VCreed33: just to be preventative
Metasarc: Nah, he'd likely just call you a nazi.
VCreed33: lol, Highlander's about to come on
TanithRyudo: well... if it's aggressively getting
rid of the problem posts, then his griping isn't
gonna do much
TanithRyudo: HL? what channel?
TanithRyudo: the series or the raven?
Metasarc: Movie or show?
VCreed33: how delighfully coincendtal
VCreed33: the movie
TanithRyudo: which movie?
VCreed33: not sure
SirChristopher55: It's the original
VCreed33: it's funny because VCreed33
(02:21:07): wow, Soldier has how a fight in my
TanithRyudo: and munchy can gripe all he
wants about being nazi... but only 2 ppl have
any power/weight in their opinions of me
VCreed33: and now Highlander is coming on
TanithRyudo: Llax would just laugh in his face,
and Watcher would only resist b/c he's too
polite to laugh
SirChristopher55: There's two ways to take fair
moderation: like a man, or like a whiney bitch
VCreed33: because it was a dream that I had about
Highlander that started how my fights in dreams
SirChristopher55: Since I feel this moderation,
should it be enacted, is fair, I think you can
take it from there
VCreed33: Tani, and Jonah
TanithRyudo: Jonah does not tread the ground
TanithRyudo: and therefore defers judgement
in all Rumbles related matters to the Rumbles
Gaherfindahl: Even if he cared, he has no time to
TanithRyudo: busy man
VCreed33: so his opinion of you doesn't matter?
TanithRyudo: his opinion on my moderation
duties doesn't b/c it will never come up
VCreed33: that's cool
SirChristopher55: So theoretically, you guys
could reign over Rumbles with an iron fist
any everything would be kosher
TanithRyudo: hm... yep
VCreed33: heh, I remember back in 95 talking with
some people that thought they just knew
everything about Highlander
SirChristopher55: Assuming you had a good
cover story for the inevitable e-mails (I
always prefer "it's a hacker spoof, pay no
TanithRyudo: actually, a lot of the other mods
would be cheering us on if that happened
Metasarc: And then Munchy would be right.
SirChristopher55: Oh, I bet
AnOnymOu5: What did Munchy do this time?
TanithRyudo: there's a lot of anti-rumbles
sentiment out there
VCreed33: I asked them what other names did
Duncan use besides Russel Nash
VCreed33: they didn't even know about Russel
SirChristopher55: Yeah well, it's lonely at the
TanithRyudo: V: ... augh!
Gaherfindahl: Screw what the other mods think..as
long as Jonah or Parallax won't pull the ban button
on me, whatdo I carewhat they think?
TanithRyudo: well, i get along with a lot of the
TanithRyudo: BA and I sorta bonded over our
love of Jin Yong wuxia
VCreed33: some of the anti-Rumbles stuff is
Gaherfindahl: By the way, no offense to either you
or Ben, whose opinions I value highly.
VCreed33: maybe most of it
TanithRyudo: and I've had a few late night
chats with Mike Smash and Justin
Koba The Feared has entered the room.
TanithRyudo: hm... there's a lot of anti-chuck
stuff... but there's also quite a bit of
anti-rumbles stuff from those who've never
dealt w/ chuck
Koba The Feared: Subject of the moment?
TanithRyudo: i think... some of it may be
before my time, so i can't be sure
TanithRyudo: koba: moderators and
TanithRyudo: @ cbr
VCreed33: and munch
Koba The Feared: Ah/
Gaherfindahl: Sure. Conn has always hated
Rumbles from dayone.
TanithRyudo: and munch
Koba The Feared: Conn Seanery? Why?
TanithRyudo: er... i used to know
Gaherfindahl: AlthoughChuck surely made a bad
TanithRyudo: but i forget... it might still be in
one of my icq logs w/ him
TanithRyudo: but whatever the original reason
was, i think it's become just a habit now
Gaherfindahl: Hardly matters anyhow now that
Conn's moderating days are behind him.
TanithRyudo: he didn't seem very antagonistic
when i struck up a conversation w/ him
Koba The Feared: Heh.
VCreed33: it has seeped into his soul
Gaherfindahl: I have to admit though that my once
very negative opinion of T'Omm has turned
Koba The Feared: Howy hates Rumbles.
TanithRyudo: i've never gotten the impression
that t'omm was anti-rumbles
PhrozenWSU: Joe Rice does alos.
Koba The Feared: Provoking a rant directed
towards him from Yours Truly.
Gaherfindahl: He isn't.
TanithRyudo: joe is... eh...
VCreed33: I only have a slightly negative opinion
Koba The Feared: What's with Joe
TanithRyudo: thin skinned
TanithRyudo: looking for trouble
Koba The Feared: Psh.
TanithRyudo: that's what i got from him the
few times he's been on rumbles
TanithRyudo: brb a sec
Koba The Feared: I never saw T'Omm as
Koba The Feared: There are other things about
him that annoy me though.
Koba The Feared: I think he over-moderates.
Gaherfindahl: I don't relate well to TOmm at a
personal level, but he's a damned fuine mod.
SirChristopher55: He annoys the hell out of me,
VCreed33: same here Koba
AnOnymOu5: Joe is actually a part of You vs
SirChristopher55: J'onn is NOT spelled with a
SirChristopher55: Until this situation is
rectified, he will have my undying contempt
Koba The Feared: T'Omm closes down threads
he thinks are pointless. And he has this
bizarre obsessive-compulsive thing about the
Koba The Feared: Because he's always
complaining that politics or sports threads
Koba The Feared: "Bumping things off the front
AnOnymOu5: Rumbles needs more Sports threads
Koba The Feared: Like there's anything else
regularly worth talking about on Comm.
VCreed33: I had to plead with him to re-open a
thread of mine once
PhrozenWSU: They used to talk about sex all the
Koba The Feared: They still do to a lesser
Koba The Feared: One poster once started a
thread for the sole purpose of saying "I got
Koba The Feared: It went for 150 posts plus.
Gaherfindahl: V, that thread was treading a very
Koba The Feared: Never got locked.
Koba The Feared: Which thread was that?
TanithRyudo: hm... so hey, if i do get nazi-ish
on a few problem posters that most would
agree w/ me on anyways, i'd still be better
than some mods? :-P
VCreed33: about my thing with robeteer
VCreed33: but I wasn't trying to start anything
VCreed33: I wasn't even going to give details but
then people started asking me about it
Gaherfindahl: Tanith, you aren't capable of being
Nazish on your worstday.
TanithRyudo: awww.... arncha nice to say so
SirChristopher55: *calls the SS to drag
SirChristopher55: That's why she hires
AnOnymOu5: Tanith, you should ban Munchy
from posting on Naruto threads, and in return, we
will not have more than three Naruto threads at
Gaherfindahl: Well, I wouldn't necessarily make
moderating decisions exactly as you do but I'm in
close accord with your approach or I wouldn't be
VCreed33: Gordon Smith, what line was my thread
Gaherfindahl: It coulda got ugly real fast.
Koba The Feared: Tanith, who would those
problem posters be?
Koba The Feared: *Looks innocent*
AnOnymOu5: *Looks semi innocent*
VCreed33: because of the "faggot" remarks?
t-be-back-soon-enough to begin with
AnOnymOu5: Wow, I have no idea who that
means. Hotbranch, I guess?
Gaherfindahl: Quite possibly..the whole thread was
an accident waiting to happen even though it ended
TanithRyudo: a few other trolls come to mind
Koba The Feared: Guh, again I express
sympathy that you have to go through that./
Metasarc has left the room.
TanithRyudo: only one's actually had 30 or so
handles doing so
VCreed33: anon, it's supposed to be shall not be
AnOnymOu5: I'll keep that in mind in the future
Koba The Feared: What more can we do to
TanithRyudo: munchy definitely needs a sterner
talking to, and more if he still won't listen
TanithRyudo: nuke argentina
Gaherfindahl: Nothing that's practical.
PhrozenWSU has left the room.
Koba The Feared: OK, I suppose I could hang
onto the rest of my arsenal and still be
Koba The Feared: *hands Tanith a nuke*
SirChristopher55: Ban Argentina
Gaherfindahl: The only real way is to require admin
validations of all new accounts..not gonna happen.
SirChristopher55: That's practical
TanithRyudo: we may yet come to that
TanithRyudo: the ban argentina thing
Koba The Feared: Yeah, how can he get away
with threatening to rape and murder people
Koba The Feared: Doesn't the kid have parents
Koba The Feared: ?
TanithRyudo: eh... more easily for that i can't
do much legally over international internet
AnOnymOu5: Well, do we have any positive
posters from Argentina?
TanithRyudo: but the only upside to that
encounter is that i gave the other mods on
the mod board an eyefull of what we have to
Gaherfindahl: I don't think so.
AnOnymOu5: Well, then the balancing act is easy
TanithRyudo: which gave us a step closer to
SirChristopher55: There you go, always find a
Gaherfindahl: Well, that's an extreme measure to
PhrozenWSU has left the room.
TanithRyudo: instead of the last three strings of
numbers... we're now banning his ip's down
to the last two
AnOnymOu5: Well, to be fair, ever since World
Cup 1990, and the Argentinan player hit a German
player in the face
AnOnymOu5: I haven't been a big fan of Argentina
PhrozenWSU has entered the room.
PhrozenWSU: Thank you Tani
TanithRyudo: i would love to see the day when
all 200.* ip's are banned
AnOnymOu5: *checks his ip*
SirChristopher55: Whew, good thing I'm 207.*
Koba The Feared: So HB's ips all begin with
TanithRyudo: yep. all 30 so far
AnOnymOu5: Does anyone else have a 200 ip?
TanithRyudo: i dunno
TanithRyudo: i can only check ips on rumbles
TanithRyudo: and it's not like i check everyone's
like i have nothing else to do
Gaherfindahl: Is it wise to be advertising your blog
on CBR like you do, Tani? he might tumble onto
it one day.
TanithRyudo: he ain't intelligent enough
TanithRyudo: plus i have ban abilities on my
Koba The Feared: Cooooooooooollllllllllllllllllll...
TanithRyudo: and also, he's never been to NEB
TanithRyudo: it's too intelligent a board for
PhrozenWSU: We aren't intelligent. I feel insulted.
Koba The Feared: Hehe.
Koba The Feared: I, on the other hand, have
posted on NEB several times.
Koba The Feared: And therefore am superior to
most of you.
Gaherfindahl: I wish I had saved is post from years
ago when he gave what purported to be his real
name. It might have been useful to us.
TanithRyudo: well we certainly do have a much
higher troll ration than neb!
VCreed33: lol, if it were rations...
TanithRyudo: Gah: I wouldn't believe it... the
guy's a pretty compulsive liar
PhrozenWSU: *pants Koba*
Koba The Feared: "Pants?"
PhrozenWSU: as in de-pants
Gaherfindahl: Possibly. But there was detail in
there that had the ring of truth, even if his name
TanithRyudo: hm. how 'bout a 'denial of
service' attack on the prima internet service?
Koba The Feared: Uh huh.
Koba The Feared: *Nukes Prho*
Koba The Feared: *Phro
Gaherfindahl: That's an option.
Gaherfindahl: Although I suspect an illegal one.
TanithRyudo: if i spoke spanish better than i do
i might try calling the service
TanithRyudo: and try talking them to taking
the idiot off their service
VCreed33: prima is cousin
PhrozenWSU: You just have to get Overmaster to
Koba The Feared: A friend and I are watching
The 5th Element and Bruce Willis just jumped
through a hail of gunfire.
PhrozenWSU: That was a decent movie.
AnOnymOu5: Is the friend, Kain the Feared?
Koba The Feared: I started saying "Character
Shield" in a singsong voice and my friend
looked weird at me.
AnOnymOu5: Because that would be awesome
Koba The Feared: Anon, nope. Kain and I live
somewhat far apart. Or at least we did.
Koba The Feared: He's just Michael.
Koba The Feared: And he looked at me and
said "Sometime you'"
AnOnymOu5: Michael the Feared?
Koba The Feared: "Sometime you have to
teach me all those weird fanboy terms you
VCreed33: I can dig that
Koba The Feared: Believe me, it is literally
impossible for Michael to scare anyone.
Koba The Feared: I just moved in the TV we're
watching, his new one. By myself.
Koba The Feared: He's too weak to help.
VCreed33: I moved a 27 or 32 inch by myself
Koba The Feared: This one's a 32.
Koba The Feared: And I spent all day lifting
parts of dead trees for a neighbor.
PhrozenWSU: I don't know. From all accounts Doc
Holiday was very weak but I doubt anyone would
want to mess with him.
SirChristopher55: That's because he was a
gunslinger with a reputation
Gaherfindahl: Ugh. falling asleep here. Think I
better call it a night.
VCreed33: *sniff* the days when I was 160
VCreed33: farewell Gordon Smith
Gaherfindahl: G'night all.
Gaherfindahl has left the room.
AnOnymOu5: Man, all of your friends should be
members of the Feared clan
AnOnymOu5: That way, I could be a better Koba
PhrozenWSU: Is Koba getting a jobber aura?
AnOnymOu5: He doesn't need one, his micro is
mad l337 yo
Koba The Feared: *beams*
Koba The Feared: Yep. You should see my
AnOnymOu5: Can't see anything SC related
AnOnymOu5: I'm retired
Koba The Feared: I have a perfect jobber aura.
I've been fine-tuning it since I was born when
I single-handedly offed a SWAT team from
the delivery room.
AnOnymOu5: Your micromanagement is very
AnOnymOu5: Although really, what's a Swat
Koba The Feared: Yep. I can micro with one
ha-...uh, hand behind my back! Yeah...
AnOnymOu5: Like the equivalent to one marine
AnOnymOu5: Haha, I imagine you played a lot of
UMS games with Kerrigan
AnOnymOu5: And made a lot of Medics
AnOnymOu5: To have learned about "behind the
Koba The Feared: Nah, I'm a Valkyrie man
Koba The Feared: I'm a sucker for accents.
AnOnymOu5: Your Craft-fu is good and creepy
AnOnymOu5: A good combination
Koba The Feared: Hehehe.
Koba The Feared: I always thought that the
Valkyrie was an underrated unit.
AnOnymOu5: Tell that to ten million dead
Koba The Feared: They shred mutas like
AnOnymOu5: Which is the primary reason they
were added to the game
AnOnymOu5: They drop Scouts and Wraith too,
for what it's worth
AnOnymOu5: And go reasonably even with Sairs,
Koba The Feared: I usually got them to own
AnOnymOu5: That's because you are elite
Koba The Feared: They own Devourers too
with Science Vessel support.
AnOnymOu5: Bah, Sci Vessels aren't support
TanithRyudo: mmm... tis late here, i be getting
Koba The Feared: But they're practically
useless against Carriers and entirely useless
AnOnymOu5: They're the arm of the Terran Army
TanithRyudo: night all
Koba The Feared: OK, Tanith!
