: Then we had the H20 crowd join, and well, things became more hectic.
Yep. This board finally got some energy!
: Fights started, egos wanted to be fed,
You've never wanted your own ego to be fed, Prisca? Why did you post a picture of Sandra Bullock for so long, then? Why did you allow a post of someone who was not YOU in a black outfit, who was tall and lean-and-mean without ever saying it was NOT you, until you were called on it, then?
If you are asserting that you are one of those people who DON'T have an ego that needs to be fed, then you are either dead, or a liar. Everyone likes to have their egos be fed (in otherwords, to be "validated" for what they say and do).
Therefore, your comment is an ad hominem and you are a hypocrite who pretends to be otherwise.
: and the locals felt outnumbered.
So, you're saying this board has a "Class" system: "locals" versus "not locals?" That makes you an elitist with an attitude. That also make you prejudicial. A sort of "racist" on this board, so to speak.
:It was like a wild-west town - if you raised your head too high, it was likely to get shot at.
Translation: "If you spouted the same bullshit you were used to spouting before, someone actually called you on it, as I am calling you on it now." Therefore, you are saying "before the H20ers came on board and thenceforth, we had this simple agreement: 'don't call me on my bullshit and I won't call you on your bullshit.'"
Yeah, things have changed. This board is has improved beyond that simplistic notion that you cherished so much.
: For a good year, there were personality clashes, insults flew, people tried to "out" others (putting personal info on the board) and it was a rather nasty place. Some people left simply because of the hostile atmosphere.
Some people leave merely because of bullshit, too. You were a moderator on Witless.nuts, weren't you? Didn't you moderate mountains of bullshit and lies there? Day after day. Week after week. There weren't any flame wars there, huh? That's because the moddys with the guns simply deactivated people and deleted all the evidence. So all you had left was bullshit.
In short, you wish for the good old days when there was more bullshit than lively discussion.
You must still be a dub at heart. I forgive you. You've only been out a short while, but dub thinking is still in most cells in your body. When you finally reach the point where you CELEBRATE lively discussions and controvery (and can simply leave those discussions if you don't like them), you will get your official "Apostate Badge of Honor." I would be happy to pin it upon you at that time.
