    The fundamental flaw is assuming it's a process to begin with.

    I think alsiH20 and Spoony are tied for the greatest flameouts on any board I have even been on. Though I am not sure which board(s) they occured on, so they might not qualify for "Best of CM".

    alsiH20's was epic because it was so utterly, completely fucking insane. Not only was the flameout itself brilliant in it's splendor, but the causes and motivations of the flamout were so obscure it was a perfect storm of idiotic froth, like the ramblings of a lobotomized lunatic with Down's Syndrome. The end result, after the dust had settled, was a collective WTF moment for everyone involved. He left everyone disgusted and irritated, but I doubt anyone could really explain why or what the hell happened.

    Spoony was the champion Drama Queen. I mean face it, anybody who spends a lot of time on a message board is a bit of a drama queen, but Spoony was a goddamned professional. I tip my hat to him.

    That's being awfully kind. Dude had/has some serious problems not to mention being a massive social retard.

    EDIT: Also, drama queen =/= attention whore.

    Most of this is making me want to read some of the flameouts again. Anyone have links to alsiH20's meltdown?

    There was a very entertaining one on KT if I remember correctly. But that was a couple of years ago.

    You mean Zach Houghton?

    That always struck me as a (reasonable) difference of opinion on what was going on in the ENnies that year, that the usual ENnies haters jumped on and conflated beyond what it was.

    The best alsi meltdown IMHO was back in the NKL/NTL days, so that one's lost to the mists of time.

    it may not be. I heard it from his ex-wife, who heard it from someone who lives in the same town. He may be an alcoholic pizza jockey who throws pots in his kitchen. Or he may have married again and she's supporting him, just like last time. Dunno. He's batshit, so it's not worth pursuing, really.

    I mean, unless someone could get him to come here and explode into angry drama. That might be funny. Well, except that it would make his ex-wife uncomfortable.

    So is it fair to say he may not have a pot to piss in? (Even if said pot was designed and created by him?)
