    I know it wasn't here at CM but I'm surprised nobody's mentioned KenM departure from ENWorld.

    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.

    That pretty much sums it up. She just left out "sense of entitlement" and a few other... yeah what PWD said

    You mean accused of trying, right?

    Trying to get into her pants seems like the act of a rational, healthy man. Actually succeeding might cause embarrassment and drama for a couple of ancillary parties, however.

    Man, I remember this super bizarre post Clay made about... like, a story about being alone in his house, and hearing a noise and going to investigate it or something. And he kept saying things like "my training took over and I blah blah some ninja shit blah blah." It read like some weirdo "I'm the hero" fanfic short story but apparently it was meant seriously. I still get the giggles when I think about that.

    Good times, good times.
    J: Yea, well... cinnamon thinks everything is funny.
    cinn: hahaha!

    cinn: I'm officially sick of being in the car.
    GL: Ok, well let's play I Spy.
    cinn: Ok! I spy.... A HAWK!
    GL: ...
    GL: Man, you SUCK at I Spy.
    cinn: Well I had to do it fast! It was flying away!

    Oh right! He had special forces training. I remember now.

    Why would that sound crazy? I imagine with the huggler element here the tone would be softer overall.

    Then again, I really have no idea what I'm talking about.

    Which one? He regularly showed up again several times, including with KenM2 as a user name.

    If Dr Midnight was here, he could tell you about his latest flameout at wrongplanet or whatever that website was. Those were more spectacular.

    Sane Spoony could be fun. In some ways, he wanted to be fun too much, and only knew how though imitation of others (The alts, insults, etc). However, he had some serious issues and felt the need for vengeance and to be right too much (again, probably learned). I really do wish him the best, as I've no reason to think he's anything but a disturbed but nice guy underneath it all.

    Spoony Bard isn't exactly a unique nickname though, so there's probably a few other folks who use it online. Hell, I'm surprised by the number of places I find Bront registered to another user.

    I think the reason I found him more tolerable here was at NKL he was posting a lot more shitty songs. Maybe as a mod he had more important things to do or maybe he kept it here in places I never ventured.

    His 'funny' alts ran rampant over at NKL a lot more, it seemed.

    I can't recall if MythusMage actually flamed out or if he just got jeered into leaving. Honestly, F7 was more of a jeered into leaving situation than an actual flameout.

    He flamed out defending the sexuality of a 7 year old girl. The jeers probably helped.

    Spoony did leave crappy code all over the place that I'm still finding pieces of and scrubbing with a steel brush. Both here and at ENWorld.

    Didn't zach have some encouragement from therpgsite? Wasn't that all part of pundit's attempt to discredit other boards for his own benefit?

    What happened with Aldo? He has fingerprints on the back end, still, positive ones in my estimation. He left documentation for one thing.
