Thread: What is Your Favorite Flameout?

  1. #31
    It's been a long time since we had a full on, hissy fit, "I'm taking my ball and going home!!" flameout at CM. I guess I think of Mythusmage somewhat in that regard, though rather weak compared to the ideal.

    However I get plenty of this behind the scenes over at ENWorld. Seems like maybe every 4-6 months we tempban somebody who we then exchange a series of e-mails with wherein they protest vehemently for their right to be a dick wherever they want on the internet (course they never regard their own behavior as dickish per se. They usually end up saying something like, "You can't HANDLE the truth!"). Many of these end with some version of "You'll REGRET banning ME!" or "You haven't seen the LAST of ME!" Both of which sentiments are always exactly wrong.

    This being CM, when GG says Mark a lot of people think of CMG "suckerpunch" Mark instead of Alsih20 "Clay" Mark. Goes with the territory.

    Alsi had the best simultaneous multiboard flame-bomb that I remember, but that predates CM by a fair bit.

    Spoony's flameouts were always entirely predictable, somewhat pathetic, and yet endlessly amusing... still, it was somewhat like kicking a crippled rabbit into traffic - fun, but ultimately unsatisfying.

    Der_Kluge's clueless rampage was amusing, but it suffered from the same downer as Spoony in that the dude just is not fully functional.

    Tormageddon was fun and all, but similarly ended with a whimper.

    Dunno, I'm not sure we've had a truly epic flameout here that would match up with the days of old.

    Nearly all flameouts end with a fizzle, that's their nature.

    It's all about how it got there.

    I don't think this is a list of flameouts. Cheiro? Flameout?

    it was a fizzle.

    Cheiro basically said he was tired of all the nasty posting here. and left.

    he came back. but doesn't post much now.

    So did I. He was still here when the majority realized their mistake. He left for real-life things; it had nothing to do with that.

    We've had some really entertaining drama (BM, DK, DDK/Kzach, etc.), but I don't recall any real flameouts. Der_Kluge came close a couple times, but never went all the way. Most of the morons that come here just stop coming back, like Formulajackoff77.

    Not even close to a flameout or an associated fizzle. He simply doesn't post anymore. It happens.

    Yarp. Wilder was the other most recent that comes to mind. Pops in, does there lame in the corner and then never come back.
