    There is some serious crap going on in the Bassists and Basses forums.

    I feel that I need to explain my actions-

    I do want to apoligize for my actions in the thread about the bass that got stolen. It was definitely the worst spot of troll infestation.

    I continuously egged them on and argued back with them. But I didn't just do it for the fun of it. It made sense to me. In my eyes, I was keeping them occupied in that one thread, and was trying to keep them from spreading their filth to other threads. I did notice that as soon as that thread was closed, others sprang up.

    I was just trying to keep it as clean as possible. I was just trying to help. Sorry.

    I missed all the fun. Cool that Paul was online, I just wish that I saw his face when he realized he was banned within about twenty seconds of starting his crap. That must've been priceless.
     
  11. Can I ask what happened? Can I find anything? Lemme look, I want all the gory details....:D

    That was the problem.

    It seemed to have started in the stolen MTD thread in "basses", and it went on for several hours because JT, Ryan and I were all offline. When I logged in, I had about 30 thread reports waiting. I closed the thread, PM'ed Paul to schedule a lynching and started cleaning up the mess. This forced the perps into other threads in "basses" and elsewhere just like stepping on a tube of toothpaste. Luckily, Paul rode in about then and solved the problem. Two double-taps.

    It was a little exciting there for awhile...
     
  14. Is Washburn banned? Someone said that he could have just left himself logged in and someone else could have done all of that, which would make sense because he had over 500 posts already so you wouldnt think he would pull something like that.

    My sincerest apologies for the leg of the troll attack that managed to rage in Bassists. I was gone for the weekend, playing at a party. I came back and found my inbox flooded with reported posts. I am glad that it's all over.

    It's good to know that when mods need help, the omniscient Paul is there to save the day! Thumbs up!

    :D

    Ohhhh am I ever a nosey boy. Come on...let me have, what happend? :D
     
  17. Just a couple of trolls spewing all manner of filth, posting some distasteful pics, threatening to beat other members up (especially me :D) and just being general nuisances.

    I normally don't participate in troll-a-thons, but I couldn't resist last night for some reason. :D
    Sorry if I caused any unrest.
    A shame about the MTD, though.

    They were after me more than you. They made a whole new about me :eek: It made me feel special :D

    And that was my first troll-a-thon, and it was kinda fun.

    Telling the drummer jokes about them was particularly fun :D

    I missed the last one where all of those threads got major bumpage, so this was actually my first troll attack so far.

    I have passed into manhood :D
