    Yes, the dumb fucker was livid that we were excoriating one of his members over on NTL, and he was demanding Nutkin "do something about it". Since Nutkin wouldn't, there was a bit of a falling out.

    Whatever respect I used to have for Eric (as opposed to his fuckhead grandmother) went down the crapper permanently that day.

    Eh. I don;t remember that.

    Eric was never really a big poster here. I think he had a snit alongside joe, but I don't think he flamed out. I think he just cut back.

    He stll posts here, just not very often.

    Why? Is she here? If so, sure. If not, I say lure him in with promises of love and acceptance.

    I think he kind of proved otherwise, honestly.

    You know, it's somewhat out fault that Spoony behaves like he does. He tells us "I'll behave this time, it'll never happen again", and we end up eventually saying "okay, Spoony, we forgive you", and let him run things again, knowing all the while that the volcano will indeed erupt again, and we, like the crazy diamonds we are, repeat the cycle once it happens. I hope it's realized that Spoony won't ever change, and there's no point in forgiving him every time he does this.

    Clay.... if I remember correctly, was a Class A attention whore, and behaved well UNTIL he started getting criticized about anything, and then he went straight off the deep end when it occurred. It was spectacular, to say the least.

    Spoony never "ran" Circvs Maximvs.

    At one point he did manage to hack it so that he could ignore JC, because he had old ENworld passwords, I guess.

    Spoony did redeem himself a bit after the great ENworld crash (Wasn't that TwinRose's fault?) and he helped restore everything from backups.

    Regardless, forgiving people over the internet ain't like a big deal or really meaningful of anything, I think you might be overstating our influence.

    Perhaps this was the way it was at other sites but I gotta say it wasn't the way it was here unless he did something really big in the year of CM that I missed. He never really had any influence or power except for what Morrus allowed him to get away with, which wasn't much. It was mostly just whiney bullshit, bad RL judgements and massive instability before he went too far and got himself permanently kicked.

    I only saw a bit compared to what he's pulled in general but I saw enough to know that not much had changed, if anything. He never added anything to this board except for the occasional trainwreck. I get that people were entertained by the schadenfreude-fest that Spoony was and some folks never get enough of teh drama but his act was old and tired. And his repeated proof of non-growth was stale and un-entertaining.

    There's only so far one can go before they have to own their bullshit.

    Or I could have just said this.

    The sad thing about that was what he did with Morrus' trust. And the pathetic part was that he actually took the time to erase negrep.

    Spoony was... problematic.... on Nothingland and Nutkinland. What's sad is that I was one of the people willing to give him a second chance.

    Oh man you missed out, that first year he was part of a team of conspirators intent on usurping ENworld's position as el primo RPG site and used to troll CM with hilariously bad dramatic prose of the sheer awesomeness he was going to bring to the table, perhaps in the hopes of luring folks over to his upcoming site.

    When no-one showed up he said "fuck it" and gave it to Pundit, someone who's actually managed to make a career out of chicken-littling malicious gamer conspiracies that are supposedly actively working to keep the fun out of RPGs. At least now all the bitter gamer-loathing gamers have a place to gather.

    Yes x 100. Truly bizarre, yet utterly fascinating. My favorite by far.

    I realize this is going to sound batshit crazy but I found Spoony much easier to deal with here than over at NKL.
