All of Shells complaints besides the point. If the last thread wasnt locked I would have went to this much more agreeable demeanor anyways. I said what I felt what should be said and I can see the humor in it as well.

My main issue with the complaints is that I heard numerous times, from some of the complainers as well, that it was the most entertaining day on AF to date. Now, all of a sudden it is a conspiracy and it was done to "bait" certain people and, blah, blah, blah. The tune has changed drastically. I'll be honest and say that most of the complaints come from at least one individual who has admitted to hating this forum and very clearly likes to stir up exactly this kind of shit.

Quote:Then there is the whole scenario with LMA. I don't know what the whole beef was with Alei and Shell but it seems to me that whilst Alei didn't know LMA wasn't a real person, the fact that Shell was having a good laugh about it all behind Alei's back is again, not what I'd call very funny.

Let me clear this all up. I didn't make that troll account to fuck with anyone, but myself. The reason for it was because I didn't think I could pull off a troll on anyone else. The staff thought it would be funny if I did something that was fucking with Tibs and myself, to keep it simply and amusing.

Now, Alei joined in for whatever reason. I'm not going to speculate on her motives. I will say that she made a choice to step in and become involved. I did not make that choice for her. I only started messing with her when I saw that she was clearly lying because she sent a new member a PM containing a load of insults about me. What was I supposed to do, not laugh at that? It was fucking funny. I could have got pissed, but I didn't initially. I only got pissed when it turned into, "I didn't say anything wrong." when I had evidence to the contrary. I consider that squashed and if another insult comes out of it, I will be warning people instead of waiting.

As for the history of it, I let a bunch of personal attacks slide in light of her tenure here. I banned someone for doing something very similar to summer. I banned someone for doing it to Alei last year. I let it go when it happened to me. Unfortunately, I let it go so long that I finally lost my temper at an inopportune moment, when what I should have done was issued a warning and went about my business. It was not in the best taste, but I do not apologize for reacting to months of attacks. This thread clearly has a lot to do with that blowout, so I will say this, I should not have taken it to a personal level, but I did not and will not stand for what was being flung at me in light of the LMA situation. It was a joke. It turned into a have at Shell B fest. Shell B had at it back. /story

@Napoleon:

It seems that your real beef is with the Atheist Anarchist and LMA accounts, despite the fact that I've repeatedly explained how they were not meant to take the piss out of anyone in particular. Atheist Anarchist spent most of the time prior to April 1st being an idiot, positioning himself as a technological / political moron. LMA spent her time flirting with my normal account, trying to get a "rise" out of Shell. In other words, the accounts controlled by Shell and I were aimed solely at ourselves.

On April 1st, I was stuck for ideas about what to actually do that would be funny and believable for AA, but I settled on making him get very angry about technology and my (Tiberius) political views, culminating in the "let's ban Tiberius" thread, where he challenged me to hack him (and I did, and everyone laughed). Other than that, he didn't do much. LMA on the other hand, waited until I posted the marriage distraction thread, whereupon she launched herself at Shell for no reason other than jealousy, and Shell responded. It was other people's reactions that fueled a lot of the "controversy" over this, not what our accounts actually did. A load of people jumped to the defense of LMA, despite the fact she'd been a total bitch in what was supposed to be a marriage thread.

Edit: I should probably add that the AA account was used twice before April 1st. I probably spent about 30 minutes on that account before the big day. I don't think it is fair to say I was trolling for a whole month.

And I agree with this post 100%. Im not here to piss people off on purpose, and after I have heard Tiberius' reasons I do want to believe that he is being honest with me.

Im no longer upset over it after Tiberius' post and sort of in a strange way feel flattered about it. Im no stick in the mud, I can see the humor.

Then again, me and Tiberius and (and now Shell most recently) have some animosity between us. At least I clearly point it out instead of hinting and suggesting such things (*cough* Shell *cough*). I would rather we just work the shit out instead of slinging shit or claiming peoples panties (mine are batgirl btw) are infested with sand or fleas or something.

Shell, I know that you have that big bad ban button. You will get a much better response from me if you didnt point at it all the time.

Shell, I am not perfect and yes I can be an asshole from time to time. How about we find some common ground instead of focusing on differences?

out . . . your ass? Wink Enough with this, whateverist. I did not insult you personally and will not be baited to do so. Constructively involve yourself in the conversation or be subject to Vae's maize comments, your call.
