Tax the wealthy. Problem solved.

It's really interesting to me (but no one else I'm sure)

That this is the second forum community I've been a member of that has been booted out by its former landlord and come to rest in one or more sites with new forums designed to mimic the original one.  That was the whole point of my site, to copy the forums on Planet Half-Life, Planet Quake, etc, years ago.  :-D

the other half of OUR particular split ended up on forums.rootb33r.com, which you can see looks pretty much like my site albeit in a different color scheme (and running an entirely different codebase).

I can see why you scored so low in your IQ tests. Not too good with pattern matching, are we?

Planet Quake...wow forgot all about that. Never used the forums, but did visit to see what was happening in the dynamic mod world.

Stomped ("The Stompin' Grounds!") was another big Doom/Quake site, and I remember my amazement when that once hugely trafficked site was suddenly just a billboard for their tiny cyber cafe thing.

Other than to a speleologist into the murky depths of the psychotic online personality it probably isn't that interesting.

For the record, my IQ consistently tests somewhere around 150, if you first of all, believe in IQ tests, and second of all, were worried that I was a genius.  :-)

Not that I do believe in IQ tests but IQ you don't put to any use isn't banked for a rainy day its just lost.

"That this is the second forum community I've been a member of that has been booted out by its former landlord."

You better watch out for the feds in charge of reviving sick businesses (here in India it is called Industry Revival and Development Board). You could be slapped with a few lawsuits for damaging businesses whose sole idea for success is to feed on the minds of others.

And "former landlord" does imply that Mark is expecting Joel to go bankrupt.

You have clearly not yet mastered English, KayJay.

He's right, though.

Dennis -

The color scheme of my forums used to be based around Planet Quake once upon a time but then people decided that it should be different as we needed to diverge... ;-)

Who's right?  Vineet that I'm expecting Joel to go bankrupt?

By former landlord I mean he's no longer ours, not that he won't continue to have a site.

And I hardly think I was the downfall of ?off and I certainly wasn't the impetous for Gamespy changing their forum software to something intolerable.  :-)

Right, but you said "its former landlord", so Vineet's interpretation seems correct to me. "its landlord" seems more accurate.

Either way, there's a pattern here. So maybe you shold go hide in a school.

Mo, I'm not. As I mentioned before I'm consistent in my appearances. Take note of that. Atleast you wont get hallucinations of being bankrupt.

I think AD generally types properly, plus there haven't been any of the other signature phrases used.

But there are definite similiarities in M.O.  Maybe Vineet is AD's other personality.
