Forum Users Suck

My wife and I are admins of a local cosplay community forum here in Austin, TX. Now, usually we have a VERY hands off approach to running the forum. We have mods to keep the peace for us.

But seriously? The MOMENT I put my foot down on an issue and I say "do as I say or this thread is as good as dead" I get accused of abusing power and trying to take control of the community? Okay, I am not a leader of ANY sort in our specifically LEADERLESS community, but these are OUR forums. And if we don't want certain topics discussed, we have EVERY RIGHT to remove them. IF you have a problem with that, get another forum and another admin who will let you. We're not going to stop you. Hell, we'd probably delete the old forums and join the new ones. But if I have the right to stop a certain line of discussion, DON'T call me a tyrant fo excercising that right. It just makes you look like those idiots who whine about free speech on forums. Guess what? Freedom of Speech DOESN'T APPLY TO PRIVATELY OWNED FORUMS!

I love you guys, but COME ON!!!

Yeah dude, so you return with your hiatus with this little gem.

"People ask me,All the time,Why are you like this [name deleted]? I'll tell you why I'm not the person to tell my feelings.

When I was around 10 yrs old I was sleeping in my bedroom,I heard screams coming from the living room. I ran down the stairs and I see in the shadows of the living room. Two people screaming for me,I ran into the living room,My little brother age five. Holding there heads by eatch of his hands.

I seen the blood of his arms,I screamed and ran into the kitchen. The knife he killed my parents with was laying on the livcing room floor. He picked it up and said "[name deleted] big brother you're next". I ran over to the phone to call the police. He throw the knife and it almost hit me,I ran into my bed room and locked the door with the phone in my hand.

He ran beinde me and kicking a screaming at the door with a faint growl. "LET ME IN BIG BROTHER BEFORE I WILL YOU SLOWER!!!!" I call the police and they arrive..."

Uhh...nope! Like the Speak & Spell says, "Wrong, try again."

If I had a nickel every time posts like this popped up in the forum I mod, I'd be one rich as hell moderator, lemme tell you.

Might as well kick this baby off with the owner giving some suck.

I mod a forum for the biggest site around for a not-so-popular RPG series.

So things are going as normal on our little forum here, when suddenly, one of the other mods' red flags comes up. We discuss that there's this little clique of people going around that, when disagreed with, they'd all immediately go gang up on that person in order to smack them down. So we end up getting more random weirdos. They seem a little bit too similar with their ganging up and their drama whoring with their long, dramatic stories about family members dying and crap. There was even one guy who even said he was Japanese, had nine fingers and a tail, and practiced katana training. Riiiiiiight.

So when our head admin goes to look up the IP address of this fellow to find a duplicate account, we find something very, very disturbing.

Yes. This guy had a duplicate account.

ELEVEN OF THEM.

Needless to say, they were all insta-banned for that bullshit. We're still clueless to this day how someone can juggle eleven different accounts. It didn't exactly click right away, mainly because the spelling and grammar of this fellow was really good compared to a lot of people on the forum.
