To . Your posts are starting to get offensive in nature.
Chill out with the language or I'm gonna kick you off the board. You've been officially warned. Next time your out of here.
Play nice in my sand box. And respect the other kids in the box. I'm sure you don't act this way at your school. U of M. So don't bring it here please.

Hi folks, I know I haven't been around for awhile, I've taken a hiatus from gaming (I'll pause while anonymus/Grima looks up hiatus) I've been working hard in the porn biz. (pun intended)

I'd like you all to know that while I've quit gaming for a while I still consider myself a gamer, & I'm not the guy who wrote that anonymously. I got a call today asking if I was the guy who posted the offending message. Sorry, I'm not that big an asshole as to be so abusive to people I still consider my friends/peers (even though I don't see you guys anymore 'cause I'm not gaming.)

Hey Mr. Wormtongue, that wasn't a nice thing to type to me & my friends so allow me to respond with some verbal abuse while I bring this down to my level.

?Dear Mr. Anonymus.
***************Edited due to Content************ Pretty funny though.. you should have read it.***********


I predict that this post might be up almost a full hour before someone complains & has it deleted. but if you enjoyed reading it half as much as I enjoyed typing it, then I enjoyed it twice as much as you did. (Hey, somebody had to keep the Gila spirit alive.) The rest of you, don't be such strangers, & call! Dammit!

Grima Wormtongue
Is a character from J.R.R Tolkien Lord of the Rings.... Part Two actually.
Oh and for the idiot who think that I am not educated.

Hiatus: a gap... or in reference to time, a period of inactivity from an endeavour

Now Censorship has come to the board. Now I see that the administrators of this board are not only fat pigs. But Fat Nazi Pigs at that. I will not be silenced

Ok let's get a few things straight here.
First of all. You are here as long as you behave yourself like a human being. When you start acting like a subhuman and start to talk about people in a negative fashion your words will be taken off the board.
I've asked you to play nice, and your not doing so. My next act will be to call your isp, which is the UofM. And I'll be telling the sys admin over there that we have an abusive user on our board. Which I'm sure if you look at your TOS of your school. Prohibits you from posting any sort of inflamitory speech on the net, using a school connection. And since I have your ip address showing that you are using a U of M ip. I'm sure his action will be to suspend your internet priveleges.
Again I ask you to refrain from posting any sort of nasty messages on this board. We do not need to know the sexual prefrences of anyone you know, nor are we really that interested. Though I'm sure that it bothers you, it doesn't us. Please be polite to all the users on the board.
Thank you.
Knowledge is power, Power corrupts, Study hard be evil.
Nobody's perfect... well, there was this one guy, but we killed him.

Dear Anonynous (Louis, can I call you Lou?)
I think you meant to say either,
A) "For the IDIOTS who think that I'm not educated"
or
B) "For the idiot who THINKS that I'm not educated"
Pick one please

I can't believe you're actually using a University of Miami ISP, I didn't think they gave those out to the janitorial staff.

As for your witty comeback, is that the best you can do? I'll give you another chance Lou. Do to it what your math teachers couldn't do to you, make it count.

Now to the guy who censored me...I can't believe it, I've never been censored & complimented before. You really thought that...excrement... was funny? It was just some random verbal abuse, not even the A-list stuff. Can I quote you? (for review purposes only) Thank you for encouraging my behavior.
Sincerely
John Barrera!

P.S. For those of you who want to read what I wrote that got censored, I'll either recycle it to be used in the near future in a piece of smut called, (shameless plug time)"Mr. Smiley's Wonderland" (Look for it wherever fine porn is sold) Or if you post your E mail & say you want to read it & if the Circle says it's okay for me to do so, I'll send you the complete post.

P.P.S. I hope I didn't offend any janitors or sanitation workers out there when I outed the anonymous guy, I'm sorry I lumped him in the same catagory as the rest of you. I'm sure the rest of you are actually decent human beings & I meant no guilt by association. Oh, & I know you don't hear this often enough, "Sorry about the mess." Let's not let one bad apple spoil our opinion of our great American custodial workers! YOU GUYS ROCK!! (Except for the anonymous guy, of course) Thanks for keeping us clean these many long years. (Thanks to all except You-Know-Who, of course. I'm looking at you Lou)

Sorry to edit your post, but I don't want any complaints from any parents. We do have some underage readers.
You can make any comments you want, within reason of course. But just keep it clean.

To L. Oviedo or " Captain Jackass " as
I may refer to him every so often,

You wanna call people Nazis because
they are sick of listening to the putrid
chicken manure that seems to continually
pour out of that infested crevice of
stupidity & ignorance you call a mouth?
Hell, I'd give them a medal of honor for
gagging your punk ass once and for all.
You're qualify as a tyrant more than
anyone else that has postied on this
topic so far. YOU'RE the one that's try- ing to take away our freedom to choose
what we do with our lives or what we do
as a hobby. YOU'RE categorizing every-
one, including the doctors, lawyers,
computer experts, and a host of other
high profile employed persons that play
this game into one group. The Nazi's
did that too- 6 million to be exact- and
for you to even imply a comparison to
the decent people that run this board &
play this game that I call friends,
including Peter B., Daniel Perez, and
Albert Solano to that group makes you
a real f**king idiot ( sorry Albert, but
I had to let that one go ). You remind
me of the worlds greatest human vacuum
cleaner because I've never heard of any-
one BLOWS and SUCKS as much as you do.
I can't believe they let a dirtbag like
you into UM- you must be a member of the
Science department... as a failed
experiment in trying to clone a brain
cell since you are obviously devoid of
any. We know your ISP, we know your
name and your school and soon, those
people you insulted by calling them
" obese " and " homosexuals " will know
as well. I have not always agreed with
some of the opinions of people on this
forum but I have always voiced my
opinions with decency and decorum..until
now but I guess an idiot like you can
bring out the worst in a person. You
have a personal problem with people and
you decide to come on this forum,
slander and degrade people, make stupid
comments about obesity and penis sizes,
and declare some kind of holy war versus
gamers? What are you a little tantrum
throwing child? Do you still wear a
diaper? Do you need me to wipe the tears
of frustration from your face with your
bib or plug the pacifier in your mouth?
Am I gonna have to sit you in the corner
until you decide to behave? GROW THE
HELL UP AND DEAL WITH YOUR ISSUES LIKE
A MAN!! And since you seem obsessed with
body parts, do you even have the B#LLS
to do so? Somehow I doubt it. If you
don't want to roleplay anymore, game, or
hang out with gamers, then fine- good
riddance to you. THat's one less cancer
we gamers have to worry about. And since
you seem to love Lord of The Rings so
much ( which I do to- how amazing that
we have SOMETHING in common ), has it
ever occured to you that that book and
the movies around it were one of the
inspiring forces behind D&D and roleplay-
ing? So on behalf of all of us gamers,
I'd like to thank you for your support
to our HOBBY.. but your still a jerk in
any case. Go find another outlet for
your rage and frustration you have for
whatever misdeed you feel was done to
you. This forum is not the stage for
your sick conflict of verbal malignance
and degrading attacks. You're a pitiful
excuse for a human being and the more
you post, the more of a devolved nimrod
you show yourself to be. You're nothing
more than a gutless neanderthal that
thinks that the right thing to do in
life is to make people feel as miserable
as you do. How pathetic!!

Signed- Rene' Alfonso

P.S.- You're a gnat slamming his head
into a granite wall. I pray that either
the experience knocks some sense into
you or puts you out of your misery once
and for all. Get some psychiatric help
for Gods sake.

Hi Green Knight, do you work for the local or federal law enforcement communities? If you do that's probably where you ran across my name. I tend to get investigated alot.
I know I've heard of the Green Knight before, didn't you face off against Sir Gawaine, back in the day? I think it was either during the time of Excalibur or Wrestlemania IV. Or am I mistaken, again.

Ah. NOW I remember! I've seen you in such films as "Rambone", "Snow White and the Seven Giants", and "Robin Hood: Prince of Lust".

Yo Grima, what's the matter? I gave you another chance to come up with some A+ material & this is what you do with it?!? Waste it! C'mon man, don't run & hide just because you think I made look stupid, because I didn't do that, It would've been redundant. God made you look stupid, I just held up the mirror so that you could see for yourself what everyone's laughing about. Hear that Louis? It's the sound of the universe laughing behind your back. What's it like to be so hated that when your own dog wags it's tail at you, it's being sarcastic?

I guess, Lou, you're just one of those guys who can dish it out but can't take it.Why is it that whenever a bigger, better bully shows up at the playground the first bully runs home scared? What do I have to do to call you out? C'mon Lou, you wanted this. After all, you did start it. For once in your life take it like a man from someone who's not using you like a woman.

I'll be checking back in a few days, maybe I'm wrong, maybe you're sick. If you are, I hope it's nothing trivial. Whatever your excuse, please understand that everyone here has missed you. That's why I'll be selling them all high quality laser sites.

Loathingly Yours
John

Grima Wormtongue eh?

Sarauman's spy / agent provocateur in Rohan, and later Sarauman's lick spittle. A troublemaker, turning white into black and good into evil, if I remember right.

Here are some actual facts. Gaming has been shown to improve the cognitive skills of those who play it, and has been used as a teaching aid for teens with learning disabilities. It also encourages interpersonal skills, by its very nature as a group activity.

Yes, there are those who may be a little strange in gaming, but can I introduce you to real life, where there are just as many strange people. Would you prefer everyone to be the same? Clean cut, perfectly chisled, always at the gym, working out whilst listening to a walkman, and not interacting with anyone at all?

I arrived in Miami a year ago, from Germany, where I had been working before. Never been to Florida in my life, and knew no one. I went through the usual hassles of setting up a new life, settling into a new job (Geochemist at FIU, if you want to start making comments), and ended up depressed and alone. I now have a beautiful fiance, a great set of friends, and all of them people I could turn to if needed. Guess what, most of them are gamers!

Gaming, evil? I don't think so.

Dr. John Sowerby

To Fellow Players,

To John/ DocJRS: Amen brother. I think
that proves the point of gamiers & gaming
being a "good thing" for the most part
quite well.

To Mr. Oviedo/ Grima Wormtongue: So
don't you take what John/ DocJRS said, put
it in your pipe, and smoke it punk !!!
