This might not be necessary but...

Post by Hiroshi »

Just wanted to say that this forum is the most NORMAL forum I've ever been to. Seriously, you guys rock. I just don't understand why other places are full of people who are disrespectful, perverted, emotional, you get the idea. Though I know a lot of you experienced members will try to tell me otherwise, seriously I've seen worse and more frequent chaos which is why I suddenly find myself coming here more than other places I visit. Kudos to all of you and this place. :bday:

This place didn't always be normal. It used to be filled with spammers and idiots but we weeded them out.

How were they weeded out and how bad could it have been? Forums I've gone to you have people trying to pick fights at every thread for cheap ego boosts, people posting about how they don't know how to approach women and want advice, a lot of pointless debates made which break out into disasters, bad racial jokes, etc. Threads that I've seen locked here don't even come close to any of these. But of course that's now, wonder how things were back then....

According to your definition of "normal", I agree that this forum is "normal". It is nice too. However, there are other equally "normal" forums. If you get the chance to explore some more, there are also quite a few games forums that also as "normal" and good places for discussion, some people can even post 3,000 or more characters of serious discussion in one post (without spamming, without quoting & without flaming).

Saw some of these kind forums before from links given by people when chatting with them in IRC. Some can be so heated that one might think that if the posters met, they would be exchanging fists.

Forums that are proned to fist fighting are always the ones involving fighting games. If you've never heard of 'em check out shoryuken.com or gamecombos.com.

Those places really bring out the beasts, and losers, of people.

Why do you think Dnirex is banned? We get our fair share of losers and morons too... we just get rid of them before they get too annoying.

I never really heard of denrix even though his name has been mentioned a few times. Also I do notice that you guys knock off annoying members and threads at lightning speed. Mods of other forums usually don't care cuz they're too busy getting an ego high from the fact that they're mods.

*Cough cough.*
Ahem.

Funny thing is, most of you guys dont even remember me. So, it feels sorta weird being accused by all sorts of things. but whatever. who cares.

and, meh. wasnt one foul. i sorta used to be pretty hyperactive, about posting stuff that got people stirred. and that wasnt good all that often. so i was sorta askin to be banned. no biggie.

Anyways, just passin by. nothing much to see around here. I guess thats good. teh bad weeds have been filtered out. ;O

Aloha!
