      Dear Denizens of the Internets,

      I'M BACK, BITCHES!!!!!

      ...Well, almost. I've still got finals week to go. And then I'm off for summer. WHICH MEANS I'LL BE BACK FOR REAL, BITCHES.

      Until then, I'll try to creep some. Might even make a post or two. Nothing big until I finish finals. But then I'll be back, and I'll do my best to explain where the fuck I've been for the last...year? No, it's been longer than that, hasn't it? Regardless, all will be revealed when the time comes.

      In short, prepare yourselves.

      Sincerely,

      Andrew "AirshipHobo" Dudenbostel

      PS - A quick review of my past few journals reveals that I seem to have a penchant for announcing myself after a hiatus, and a serious problem committing to these here forums. Hopefully, though, that won't be the case this time.

      The wilderness months have come to an end. The experiment is done, and the prodigal son returns to his nook of cyberspace, tired and weary from his foray into the "real world."

      Returning a changed man, the reckless fury replaced by unstoppable determination, laziness turned into meaningful employment, and random inspiration supplanted by artistic direction. Harder, better, faster, stronger, and all the wiser.

      So, basically...I'm back! What'd I miss?

      Yes, dear friends, I have returned from my time in the wilderness that we refer to as Life. And I return a better man, with new insights on life and a much more cheerful disposition! So now, whether you like it or not, you will be seeing a lot more of me (unless the troublesome matter of This Life We Live decides to throw another monkey wrench into the works).

    • A Predicament

      10 years ago

      AirshipHobo

      So, I have a bit of a problem. I can't decide whether it's worth it to make a Facebook page or not. Up until now, I've resisted the demands of people I know to make any kind of profile on any social networking site, though I did make a Twitter and am now starting to second guess my hesitance about these sites. I know that a lot of people I know here are on Facebook, and so are people I know IRL. This is where the problems lie. On the one hand, I have another place to interact with the friends I've made online, and my IRL friends that I don't get to talk to often. On the other hand, I also have to put up with assholes I know that will undoubtedly find my profile. It may not even matter, as it may just end up not being used and collecting dust, but I can't be sure of that either.

      No, I said the comic book thread is mostly full of idiots, hitalec wasn't in the wrong in this situation, and a journal and an image don't really count as a flaming campaign. also, if you want a place for friends to meet on the internet, you go to myspace. That's not what forums are for. Forums are for discussing a topic, simple as that.
      But I've said all this before, if it were going to get to you now it would've then. adieu.

    • Hohenheim

      9 years ago

      You tell me hit was trolling and he shouldn't come back because he had almost no friends, I prove that wrong. You move on to saying that hitalec drug on the argument, I prove that wrong as well. You continue to bring up more and more trivial ways in which hitalec is supposedly to blame for something as I keep on showing you that he really wasn't, okay. Like I said, I perfectly understood that you had said you believed both were in the wrong, but the very fact that you claim hit should go while erok stays and not both staying and neither going shows that you weren't following that thought.

      And take a look at the comic book movies thread, the movie forum in general, and then take a look at any real forum on the site. What other forum is 90% filled with "evening thread, x happened to me and i did y"? What other thread is full of people who get butthurt when you make an objective criticism of Twilight? The vast majority of regulars to the CBM thread are piss-in-their-pants frightened by the concept of setting foot in a normal thread intended for discussion of a stated topic. have you not seen how many people talk about never posting outside the movie forum? Take a look at Spiderwolve, prime example right there. His only posts outside of the movie forums were making his retarded halo motivational posters thread, and the threads in which you draw and/or post a picture.

      And look at the thread itself. The "humor" in the thread generally consists of several month-old 4chan memes, unfunny references to past posts, and jokes centered around the glorification of reposting(E.G. the "green lantern trailer" joke). Aside from that, according to the very moderator of that forum, the most epic thing on there is posting a quotes from a single pulp fiction scene and basically "+1 cool"'ing the shit out of them. there is almost no real originality in any of the jokes made in that thread.

      Seeing as you're presumably still posting away in the CBM thread, I doubt you'll find anything wrong at all with what I just described to you. No matter, I've laid out for you the the basis of what I meant by "glorified facebook news feed." If you can appreciate my claim, all the better. If not, so be it.

    • Hohenheim

      9 years ago

      Hit, on the other hand, couldn't take it, and left all of his friends behind because of it. Sounds kind of selfish, leaving your friends because some people in one part of the site don't like you. Self-confidence issues, maybe? Eh, I'll leave the psychoanalysis for another time, if at all.


      Hit left because it wasn't worth the trouble of using the site if erok was e-stalking him. That's not unreasonable, and considering you're the one citing the age old "serious business" joke that was funny about 4 years ago, you shouldn't be talking about him "leaving his friends."

      Classic use of misdirection to try and shift discussion from something your opponent is right about by focusing attention on another part of the argument. Oldest debating trick in the book, and fairly easy to spot and counter


      I'm not using tricks, I'm just pointing out one other little side detail. I know you think you're some infinitely wise master of the fine art of debate, but you really aren't. Stop trying to be. You really don't seem to know very much at all, and I'm tired of sugarcoating that.

      It's not that they were images on his profile, it was that he used them to try and deface Erok, that is how he was doing wrong.


      He was pointing things out which were mostly completely true. That isn't defacement.

      Erok isn't any more innocent (see, I'm trying to get this concept across since you seemed to miss it the first time) than Hit, I'm just trying to show Hit wasn't any better than Erok was about it.


      You'e the second person I've had to put up with this condescending bullshit from. I saw your argument the first time around, and I debunked it. You're just trying to find smaller and smaller things to say I'm wrong with while ignoring that your main assertion has been completely compromised.

      A) Because there's so much more important, serious business to be doing on the Internet


      As doing things that DON'T make these forums into a glorified facebook news feed. You clearly don't use many forums, because real forums are more than this pathetic excuse for productive posting that is the CBM thread.

      B) Really, I don't see why you're so up in arms about this. You were part of it too.


      I'm not. I'm just stating how stupid it is as it ties in with what I'm trying to tell you. You're the one who's getting up in arms about me making a reference to one of the better posters I've seen on this site. And I stopped being a part of it when I realized how fucking stupid it was.

    • Hohenheim

      9 years ago

      Maybe troll wasn't the right term. But you must be trolling, retarded, or completely blind with loyalty to say hitalec was without blame. You're right, he did "respond" to erok, but did he do it the right way? By starting flaming campaigns in his images? Erok's not the only one he did that to, as Telamon will attest.


      Oh of course, he should have kept it to the forums. How dare he actually take to heart the "take it to your profile" initiative that every other person in the movie forums preached but failed to practice. And by the way, the reason he held these grudges was because celticpred and erokdragun had both attacked him over stupid shit. You weren't even around to see half of what happened, iirc.
      All hitalec really did to erok was make a crude mastrbation joke to erok when erok was attacking him over not liking the new watchmen posters. seriously, that's all hitalec did and because of it erok basically started a flame war which he perpetuated by either calling hitalec a troll whenever any sort of argument broke out(even though hitalec wasn't trolling in the first place) and basically get people to side against hit regardless of whether or not he was right.
      celticpred made a huge post flaming out hitalec for being negative about things. he made a giant wall of text, then continued it with a whole poll just to flame him out further. now I don't have anything against celtic, but that's complete and total bullshit.

      And I'm not saying Erok's without blame; they both share equal blame. Erok, though, was able to move on after the arguments, hitalec wasn't.


      seriously dude, that's the dumbest fucking thing I've heard all day. in what way was Erok moving on? he continued to whine about it in the CBM thread and make up shit about how hit was probably mod sniping it(even though it was damned obvious that hit didn't mod-snipe people) and went on the off-site forums and tole people to mod-snipe hit. AND of course he swooped into threads he didn't even read and blamed every little argument on hitalec and his "trolling". That's not moving on, that's fucking obsessing like an internet predator.

      Hitalec had more enemies in the movie forums, not because of Erok making him out as a troll, but because he had insulted groups of people associated with his enemies (namely the Family), and his arguments with Erok were seen as pointless by the other users.


      No, most of the posters were(and are now more than ever, mind you) a bunch of clueless faggots who assumed simply because erokdragun attacked hitalec that they should join in. hitalec responded to this by generalizing the people attacking him to be fucking idiots and insulting them in kind.

      And I'm not saying that he was a bad person, even though he didn't have a good opinion of me (only because I was Family and tried to settle things between him and Erok)


      He didn't like you because you put forth the same completely uninformed argument that you are putting forth now, blaming him for most of what happened while saying erokdragun's only a little bit in the wrong.

      all I'm saying is that he did not leave the site on a good note, and it probably wouldn't end well if he came back.


      As in what? erokdragun and a select few others would get butthurt and start mod-sniping him? hitalec had friends other than movie forum posters. He was friends with most of the BAR members, the anime community, and in general the cool portion of this site.

      PS- I think you're giving Erok too much credit by claiming he gathered the entire movie forums to troll hitalec. If I remember correctly, I think most of the mods weren't supportive of Erok's attempt to have him banned, hell even Geekers took a long time to temp ban him.


      Uh, geekers banned both erok AND hitalec from the watchmen thread. And I said he got the comic book movies thread regulars to mod-snipe hit, not the whole movie forum.

      And calling the Family an online army? So what, we have 3 mods among us, the BARs have a majority of the mods spread among them. The Family also makes a point of isolating themselves, as a group, from the rest of the site. If we are an online army, we are doing a really shit job of it.


      I said you were a GLORIFIED online army, meaning you may not call yourself one, but you sure as fuck act like one. The thread's filled with 90% worthless pseudo intellectual dick-waving, people constantly go on about the "comic book family mafia" being so awesome, you rarely do anything other than make stupid posters of your online personas, and most of the people basically started negging the shit out of ANYTHING hit did that they could. For christ's sake, I had to mod up most of hit's posts on my profile because these mindless cretins were mod-sniping them too. That is fucking absurd, okay.

    • Hohenheim

      9 years ago

      You've gotta be pretty fucking stupid if you're seriously gonna tell me hitalec was a troll. He didn't troll, at worst he responded to erokdragun flaming him out(in doing which erokdragun was trolling, by the way) and the only reasons he had more friends than enemies is because the majority of his enemies were idiots who mindlessly followed erokdragun's declaration of LOLTROLL. Oh, and that's only taking into account the movie forums. Amongst intelligent people, he had quite a few friends.
