    Sometimes you want to go
    Where everybody knows your name,
    And they're always glad you came;
    You want to be where you can see,
    Our troubles are all the same;
    You want to be where everybody knows your name.

    The only thing you need to know about the current state of TNZ is that a knee-jerking, hysterical PC libtard like BE is allowed to be a moderator. Expecting BE to judge whether something is "clearly racist and/or bigoted" in a fair and impartial manner is like expecting Hannity to represent both sides fairly when discussing a Trump policy. :dayton:

    BE thrives at TBBS because her politics are in line with the politics of the board owners, she's immune from criticism and can target, harass and silence conservative members with total impunity.

    Are you senile? T'Bonz was right there, playing Sarah Huckabee Sanders to Lisa's Trump.

    Resorting to comparing WF to other sites that feature more restrictive & stifling moderation completely misses the point. WF is special precisely because it *isn't* like other sites.

    Of course, you knew before you typed this that there was no way for anyone to verify it's truthfulness. gturner gave his password to others? Prove it. And even if it's true, so what? What's your basis for declaring this an unpardonable sin? :rolleyes:

    I couldn't care less what other boards would or wouldn't do. If I wanted to be somewhere that offered "staff" that would protect me from dangerous pixels and speech that *they* found offensive, then I would go to TBBS.

    So you and a handful of others have argued over the years. You're just butthurt that you've never won those arguments and have failed to reinvent WF as a SJW echo chamber and safe space for mental weaklings.

    Sweetheart, you aren't offensive. At least not the way you want to be. You're a shitty diaper, not a shit raiser.

    Actually it’s because I’m nice, funny and people seem to like me. While you’re a shitty troll with fake opinions making posts until your heart stops and we’re all free of your whiny bullshit.

    There are people I'd miss if they died between now and tomorrow. There are people I wouldn't care about. And then there are people I might actually chug half a bottle of vodka over their deaths.

    BizarroEnt is in the first category.

    Flashlight doesn't even make the third.

    Why drink vodka when Sterno is so cheap?

    @BizarroEnt thrives there for the same reason she thrives here (and yes, she's more popular than you here by a mile, if you doubt that why not set up a poll?), because she has a sack load of positive attributes which are valued despite being in opposition to the conservative leaning admin's politics. Of course @T'Bonz is what is known in the trade as an intelligent conservative and sees the good in people.

    You, however, seemingly struggle to make headway here and it's not because you're conservative, far from it by all accounts you were just as unpopular when you swung to the left, it's because you write extremely poor posts and rightly consider the "dumb" rep the best rebuttal in your arsenal.

    If Flashlight kicked it, I doubt anyone who give enough of a shit to piss all over his memory the way half the board did when Solar bit the dust. We'd shrug and wonder what happen to that buzzing noise, then move on with our lives.

    Sweetheart, I wasn't running TrekBBS then. I did support the crackdown and anyone over there still knows I hate that people troll and flame there and get too cliquish at times. Most there are good eggs though minus behaviors. Same was true with the WF crowd back then. Same type situation. A clique wanted to be in charge. So they came here. The TNZ crowd is OK other than their belief that anyone who holds a contrary political argument is a troll and must be run off. That's not all of the TNZers of course; just a handful.

    Then again, it's no different than out in the world, now it is.

    *

    Shirogayne: Neroon is still there; the longest-serving mod left (beating me out by one month. :P)

    *
    Flashlight:
    Christian leaves running the place (minus business or technical decisions) to me. AP holds political views different than mine. I'm that rare individual that believes it's OK to hold different politic viewpoints, even if some of them are fucking stupid. It's called tolerance. I hate this modern-day political tribalism.

    If AP steps out of line, she would hear from me.

    *

    *lol* I love Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She takes no prisoners. She must have a little Romulan in her. Thanks for the compliment. *grin*

    Lisa was no Trump. She was a sweet, shy girl in over her head. I tried to help her by influencing her admin pics so that assholes wouldn't become admins and fuck with the board. She'd have made an excellent small forum mod, which she was before she took over. I hope her life is happy and full now. Some people are suited for different things there; some excel in smaller, peaceful forums; while others like to be where the latest action is. I try to put them where they'll do well and be happy.

    Spot261, don't mind Flashlight. He has been and will always be an utter clueless moron. My only regret in saying so is that he'll say the same old shit he always says and he's just so boring. Then he'll neg rep me thinking that I give a shit. I only had it on due to someone wanting it to be on. I find rep to be useless.

    Why does every picture you post of yourself in the Green Room look like you just crawled out a dumpster after a 5-day meth binge?

    Lie. :dayton:

    And this is all you need to know about this idiot bitch.

    The only people who get targeted for harassment via bullshit allegations of "trolling & flaming" are conservatives.

    Fake revisionist history. You and Lisa overreached, pissed off most of the population of TNZ with your harassment campaign, your threats, your heavy-handed, biased "moderation" (which was nothing more than speech control and suppression of conservative viewpoints). TNZ denizens responded by telling you and Lisa to fuck yourselves and left en masse.

    Are you still operating under the delusion that this phenomenon is exclusive to conservatives? :dayton:

    Along with BE moderating TNZ, proof positive that TBBS is still a bizarro world shithole.

    Newbies that aren't familiar with your history might be convinced by this lie, but why spout this bullshit to me? I know who and what you are. :dayton:

    Spot261, don't mind T'Bonz. She has been and will always be a nasty, lying bitch. She knows the role she played in the genesis of Wordforge, but doesn't want to admit the truth. My only regret in saying so is that she'll say the same old shit she always says and she's just so boring. Then she'll insult me for the 5 millionth time, thinking that I give a shit. I could have returned to TBBS at any point over the past 15 years, but chose not to because the place is a complete wasteland, overrun with SJW insanity and the most toxic personalities you could imagine.

    Lie? The post still exists from September 2004 when I took over. Read it and weep, jackass.

    https://www.trekbbs.com/threads/new-management.29398/

    For those interested who can't be arsed to click, here's the relevant part:

    "I'm happy to say that we have: from today on, T'Bonz will be taking over from Lisa as the point woman for the Trek BBS. Like Lisa, the Bonz will be in charge of finding new moderators and people for the admin rotation, updating the rules if necessary, handling daily headache situations, and member email questions."

    Posted September 29, 2004. C wanted me a bit early, but I had to sit through Hurricane Jeanne (I think it was Jeanne; we had two that month).

    For your amusement, the first part of the announcement "It's with some sadness that I have to announce that, as of today, T'Bonz will be replacing Lisa to head the Trek BBS." You know what he meant, but I gave him shit for that anyhow. :D

    "I'm very glad that T'Bonz agreed to take over from Lisa, and I'm sure she'll do a great job."

    And I did. I've made mistakes, but the board is thriving and that is due to both the posters and the hardworking mods and admins and Spiff and Timby. God bless 'em all. Minus the troll assholes. ;)

    I SAID I supported Lisa. She made the ultimate decision, but in all fairness, I'd have wrongly done the same thing. You live and learn along the way.

    And hey, you got WF out of it. For years, it was a fun edgy place to be. It's gone down a bit, but I think you had a better deal overall starting up this board. :You had the freedom to run it YOUR way and find your place on the Internet.

    As for me, I learned from that. I don't make the same mistake twice. Once is bad enough.

    I doubt he has friends, but do you think he tells his family about all this? He seems too obsessed to just leave it online. He probably just mutters to himself constantly while they consider putting him in a home.

    How old is he? He seems to behave like a child, but he seems to have been here a while.

    Lob all the insults you want, you still can't deny RPG.net is what you'd like Wordforge to be, a libtard safe space where conservative wrongthink is banned. You see nothing wrong with what RPG.net did because it's what you want Wordforge to be. :lol:

    You morons will now spend the next 25 posts repeating the same lame insults without ever addressing the OP (seriously, you have nothing more original that saying I have no friends and calling me fleshlight? Get some new material, please. :dayton: )

    I figure late 30s, has about a semester's worth of education in the fields he has claimed, might work as a minion to an actual professional.

    broken engagement to a woman he met in his mid 20s that lasted a few years until the parallels of his online and RL personality became too much. single ever since.
