The only problem I foresee is after forgetting them for months, I'm not going to be able to resist the temptation to pop into CEO and just to see how their dynamics develop, assuming those banned from here do rock up.
Ha! Glad to see at least someone over there sees one of the huge flaws in Scobie's way of handling things.

Are people really that interested in the minor admin decisions taken by an Internet chat forum?
And clueless statements like these by the new owner of K440 is the ultimate proof that he's just incapable of running an online discussion forum. (Sorry, I'm well aware that's a pretty brutal thing to say.)
Seriously?! After 8+ pages of a thread titled "Under-Moderating" in a NEW forum that YOU created just so people can complain about modding decisions you seriously have to ask yourself, "Are people really that interested in the minor admin decisions taken by an Internet chat forum?"
"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."

It was a little opaque- obvious he is no teecher.
I guess he combs this site daily and keeps a little book of suspected enemies of the cabal.
Admins over there must have to spend a lot of time monitoring us.
Ironic that this forum exists due to banning, and will now likely grow from the policy.
but this backslappers link:
I had no idea!

Well, Scobie just confirmed that he will be taking Khmer440 even further back to the KiR days.
K440 is clearly just for the owners and their tiny circle of drinking buddies that like circle-jerking online together.
Ha! And you weren't joking! LL calls you a cunt, and YOU get banned! Wow, Khmer440 deserves Scobie.
First it starts with excessive "Backslapping"
Then moves on to trying to control what ideas people post:
When threats of censorship don't work, lists of unwanted posters are compiled:
And then Banned if they do not post "approved" ideas and comments:
Resulting in an increasingly inbred forum of circle Jerk sessions:
Which finally results in the new approved K440 slogan and t-shirt

That's a strange take you have on it. As far as I remember OD said the forum consisted of "10 people telling the same stories all the time". When asked to show one example of this story-telling he gave a very generalized reply about checking an old election thread/ gun thread etc. I don't recall any stories being told on those threads and haven't the time or inclination to check hundreds of old pages.Rain Dog wrote:
OD and LL were debating the existence of a clique. LL demanded evidence in terms of a single thread.
I'm guessing Gavinmac, Scobienz, Playboy, andyinasia, and Lucky Lucan. Is that it?UKJ wrote:Who is the old guard / clique?

I never considered Playboy part of the circle, I would say him and scoffer are the best mods...in fact the only mods. Joon has kind of stopped altogether now for some reason.
I think some people are under the impression that 'modding' consists of pressing the delete/ban button when a post doesn't suit you, in which case any fascist or indoctrinated cretin would be able to do it.
My own perception was that it demanded a very special kind of person, supremely patient, ethical to a fault, intelligent and with a sense of humour.
Apparently not. Bit sad, really.
