don't worry if you got deleted. I'm trying to test something
I brought it up in another thread here, but instead of derailing that one, I figured I'd give it its own thread.
This is not a matter of me helping out a friend (I have talked to Show on AIM less than five times, and he tells me that he doesn't even care). This is not a matter of me trying to look cool to the bar crew. This is just my opinion on something that I see as extremely silly.
As most of you know, he has been making name after name, sometimes lasting several days or weeks, but always eventually getting banned. "By whom?" I wondered tonight. It seems that it has been Gavino every single time, as far as I can tell. Now, this is not an attack on Gavino by any means. So please don't get defensive, but of course be as frank as you'd like. I just want it to be a discussion, obviously.
Why was Show originally banned? The most recent reason was that he encouraged people to tag Gus's profile. Alright, whatever. He shouldn't have messed with Gus, who is clearly too much of a badass to be messed with. But when did that happen? March? April? May? August? Who the fuck knows?
Since then, however, the banning has not been enforced by Gus, it has been enforced solely by Gav, as far as I can tell. Fine. You're just doing what you think you're supposed to be doing. There's nothing wrong with that. But there has to be a point where he has been thoroughly punished enough. Do we not think that after months and months of not being able to have a real account, he's not allowed to come back? What did he do again? Oh yeah. He told some other people to send Gus chain letters. What a freaking tyrant.
Here's what Gav said in the thread that I brought it up:
I don't know... Show is constantly reminding people why he was banned and how many accounts he has made and why gus is the guy with the grudge blah blah. He seems proud of being banned on sight.
Alright, so? I don't see why he wouldn't be pissed at Gus, who he views as enforcing a ridiculous grudge against him (keep in mind that he doesn't know that it has been you, and only you banning him this entire time). Keep in mind that all he wants to do is chitchat in the bar, and maybe flame a few bad threads in the basement. Keep in mind that he is trying to put a positive light on a situation that really isn't positive at all. How do you expect him to act? It IS funny that we seem to view him as some kind of crazy threat against us. That's why he acts proud of it.
We clearly can't stop him from making accounts, and while it makes sense that we as moderators should take that as a challenge against us, we have to look at the situation and realize that we are banning him for being banned for being banned for being banned for being banned for being banned for being banned for being banned for something that he would have been unbanned for if some of us weren't still pissed off that he's come to ignore and even embrace the constant bannings.
I have made threads about him and others before (usually combined, and sometimes drunkenly). Usually they are not received very well, and I really don't expect this one to be either. I just hope that you guys can come to some sort of realization that this is completely ridiculous. SirMuffinMan is allowed back. Everyone knows he's here, right? Hiei is allowed to be back, I don't see anyone getting pissed off about him. Why not Show? I would argue that Show was never NEARLY as offensive as either of those two, but somehow he has remained banned while they have not. Why? I honestly don't understand it, and I honestly don't believe that any of you do either.
I want to re-iterate that I'm not doing this for him, or to look cool to the bar folks. I spoke to him today. I asked him what names he could remember making lately so that I could search the logs to find out who had been banning him. He told me that he didn't care, and I don't need to raise a fuss about it. This truly doesn't matter to him, and it really doesn't matter that much to me. Regardless of what we do, he's going to continue making names and posting here. If he had actually done something reprehensible originally, I would consider this unacceptable, and I would be actively enforcing his ban.
But he did nothing that has warranted this.

Then university police parked their car outside, and we were going to pay him $400 to steal it, drive it through the fence surrounding the soccer field and do donuts, then flee to safeway, but UPD came back and drove away. damn. he was going to do it too.

Thanks to everyone who has made this forum great the past 24 hours.
Here are some particularly great quotes from my journal comments yesterday....
ok i noticed the nsfv rules dont allow any nudity or racism right? well wtf do you call judging clans that have certin interests you just dont like, kuz thats the worst case of prejudice ive seen since ive watched the mississippi burning movie(movie about the kkk attacking black ppl and how they fight back) and this is the prime example of such, judging something you have only seen the surface of is pathetic, we all have equal interests and our rights to express them in ANY way that is still suitable for the younger viewers of xbl OR rt - XsnipeX
Let me get this strait. your 13 and some how managed to become a moderator.
First i dont think you or any other moderators have the proper authority to just go banning a clan like that (and on what grounds did this guy do it anyways) not to say specifically any names but it seems that MaxWalrus actually helped the clan.
but still don't judge people for there likes and Interests because thats unjust prejudice
HyperForce a member of FurriesUnited,
Stop being an ass, MaxWalrus. How the hell did an idiot like you become a moderator? - Jzam
MaxWalrus, You Sure Are Angry.
Most Moderators And Administrators Of Sites Are Supposed To Be Calm And Logical When Posting And Replying To Stuff.
Makes Em Look... Well... Important, But When You Blab Out Vulgarities.. You Look.. Well.. Immature And Childish.
Oh.. Just Looked At Your Profile...
That Explains Alot To Me..
I'll Have To Look At All Of This In A New Light Now. - Vertigoround
i warned you max. i told you to take the journal down.
and gus is going to intervene soon if the offensive remarks continue... - raptordocker
everything Max does is funny, mostly because people don't understand that everything he does is funny. - RoboEmu
lol, thanks, man.
It really makes me wonder about people sometimes.. one should not live with a close mind and to bleive some people enjoy doing somthing different.. means they are evil and should be taken off the earth..
Max.. grow up.. simple as that - Dark_Viper
Also, I noticed some great topics from cabose89 and.... cabose20. I was prepared to lock them, just judging from their names, but these guys may be comedic geniuses.
I guess there have been so many "caboose" usernames that they had to switch to "cabose" which also seems to be running out... lol...
Manliest ways to commit suicide
write something confusing - I especially love this one.
I guess I'm just in a terrific mood today. Last day of classes (no finals for a week), I'm doing great in all of them, and I rocked an oral defense of a paper today and then ended up just sitting around with my philosophy professor afterwards talking about politics for like 15 minutes while the other kids in line at his office were getting impatient. Plus this chick visited my room today, which is very exciting, not because I'm interested in her, but because my roommate and I got stuck at our school's secondary campus which means that we are socially cut off from 90% of my school. So the fact that we had a visitor means that we might not kill ourselves out of lonliness for another week.
By the way, I'm not 13, you fucking idiots. I do think it's hilarious how many people believe it though, and try to use it to insult me. That's why I leave it up.

potential mods are everywhere!!!
I would like to request an interview to be a moderator on the Rooster Teeth Site. I have done moderation in the past for a bunch of different sites and I am on the site almost constantly, everyday after school from 4:00pm to 11:00 pm normally, and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m on more than that on weekends and on holidays. Also I am confident I can handle the overflow of info and abuse I would endure if I became a mod. I am a soccer referee in real life and I have to deal with angry parents every weekend so I have become use to being yelled at for doing the best I can. Also I believe that I would be a good asset to the site and I could help out on the forums and ease the load on the mods that are on constantly. I hope you will respond to me and I hope I will get my interview. Thank you for time and consideration.
alright dude. you can be a junior mod.
My name's not Andy, dude.
Aaron IM SO Sorry man I cant believe I didn't type the right name. I must have been looking at another tab when I scrolled down for the name. My bad man. btw thanks for making me a junior mod.
13 years agoMaxWalrus
hello Aaron, i have noticed that in over a year, you have only been signed on for just over 6 days online time. I know the rules to moderating and am online all the time. I have been signed up ro two months and already have almost 11 total days online time. I believe i could help you guys out as a moderator as there have been plenty of times that I have been online where there was no moderator. I have helped the moderators before, (mainly DiMono or Dark54555), and would be an excellent moderator. I have plenty of free time and it is my hope that I could be a moderator. I have busted my ass for the almost three months I have been signed up and haven't cheated in any way, shape, or form and would be perfect. thanks fo ryour time, and please respond. <Austin>
YOU MAY BE A GOOD MOD, BUT CAN YOU SUCK DICK
i have talked to natez (another moderator) and he is looking into me filling in for him because he isn't ever online and has only 17 hours online time, we are trying to see if it is possible and didnt know if you knew anything about how to get someone to be a moderator. I am going to call burnie today and talk to him about it. thanks for responding, sorry for the typos, I was in a hurry.
You can fill in for me too.
alright then, i could fill in for two mods. I dont mind, i have nothing better to do with my time. message burnie about it.
You've got it, Chief.
IT REALLY IS THAT EASY!!!!
