    I must admit that there was a point a few years ago - right before GenCon - when I thought Wanger was going to have a flameout. But he held on.

    And then despite the best efforts to flameout Borko, he still posts here.

I still get the giggles when I think about that.

    Good times, good times.
    That was when I realized he might not be all there. I agree he wins for best multi-board/real life flameout.

    Most of the others kept coming back for more, until it just got tiring (Torm and Spoony). And MythusMage creeps me out too much to think about.

    You might have forgotten, but Spoony was actually kicked out. By Morrus. And the permanent ban" has held for once.



    But that's what one gets when one uses an old Admin login to fuck around with shit when they are no longer Admins.

    Spoony was the king of flameouts, but that's already been discussed a lot in this thread.

    jgbrowning had some pretty hilarious flameouts back in the day. Despite the fact that he was a complete and utter tool, I kind of miss having him around; his temper tantrums were a source of great amusement.

    Pundit definitely encouraged him to blow shit way out of proportion, yeah. I don't know if it was an actual orchestrated event on Pundit's part, though. Zach, OTOH, used the controversy to drive traffic to his (i.e., Zach's) fledgling RPG blog.
    If you're going to be an asshole, commit. Don't piss on me and tell me that it's raining.

    Oh let's not rewrite history. He attacked me, didn't hear the hallelujah chorus, then he posted a very civil PM I sent him as if that would drive followers to him, and when it didn't, and even backfired, he went fucking insane and flamed out. His original attacks were basically out of nowhere, too, since he wasn't even a regular poster here. It was a really bizarre cry for attention, sorta like how his hair keeps falling out in a vain attempt to one day see a comb.

    I know you think this is funny. The laughter is eluding me. I suppose it's because I'm an ex wife.

    The facts:

    Wil Upchurch used to post under a varieyt of psuedonyms and post in a manner he claims is inconsistent with he "real life" behavior.

    jgbrowning called Wil out over "real life versus online character" stating basically "if you act like this online, that says a lot about your personality and character".

    The argument was instigated on both sides by others, some support Wil's thesis, some supporting joe's, and many more just stirring the pot.

    For the record, I was a pot stirrer. It does attest to my character away from these boards.

    joe "crossed da line" and posted PMs as "proof" of his claims. I'm still not sure how that backed him, but he clearly felt it did.

    Many turned on joe visciously over the idea saying "every PM is sacred!" and decrying him for violating that "trust".

    scuti was involved somehow, so was Cyragnome I think. Maybe it was GreyOne or PWD too.

    Anyway, what I take away from this is it was all Wil's fault and Dr. Midnight failed to save us.

    The end.

    LOL, as if at least 50% of the time PMs are just a place for people to act like total d-bags out of the public eye.
    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!

    I can't speak for the other fine gentlemen mentioned, but I can tell you for my part I was just being a jackass. I vaguely remember the back and forth, and remember basically looking at both JB and Wil, and looking again, and scratching my head, and looking again, and then smiling and typing "fuck" alot and smearing virtual poopy on the walls of the forums.

    Basically business as usual for me, circa 2001-2007

    The Draders flameout was probably the most entertaining for me, though it happened across many boards, including their own

    As if isn't? The filth some of you fucking cowards will spew when you don't think you'll be held to account for it is amusing.
