I don't know if this is out of line to post this, but for god's sake, i know not everyone visits GN, and i think this is important for people to see.

Why must you bring NH into this? This is a personal problem between Forgotten Hero and Grinch. Tell me why does the entire Nerf community have to decide on this?

I'm quite certain I read the post you're referring to a couple hours ago but it seems to be gone now so I'll go from memory. Correct me if any of this is wrong.

1. Someone makes a bitchy little rant on GN a few months ago about how Grinch is a prick.

2. Grinch takes a few months to notice it because he doesn't frequent the site.

3. Grinch signs up to say that the original poster is, in fact, the actual prick.

I think you guys at GN need some Valium because you take yourselves way the fuck too seriously.

If I Googled Cxwq today and found a post from 5 years ago on some forum I don't frequent where someone wrote a bitchy little rant about me, I'd sure as hell sign in and tell them where to shove it. A guy has to have a little fucking respect for himself.

So... I'm not entirely sure what this little pissing contest is really about but it's definitely not about this one thread.

In my not so humble opinion the fine folks at GN need to rethink their grounds for a holy war and the fine folks at NHQ need to leave their excellent global mod right where he is.

Of course my opinions count for shit since I only represent NH, but Grinch is always welcome to defend himself from assholes on my forum.

No, this is a different post, on a the same subject. But even with the issue aside, i think the community need to read my concept of forum separation. I think we need to use it.

I think from henceforth on we need to disipline people as a community, not as individual forums. Wheather grinch is disaplined or not, I think thios is a nice concept and is worth a look.

The original controversy was here.

I think Grinch had every right to challenge someone's resentment. The only accusation FH had against Grinch was that he was a "little annoying, know it all, suck up."

As cxwq put it, I would have done the same thing if I were in his position.

And no, I don't think the actions of a forum user on one forum should affect the reputation of him in another. You might be pissed off at him, but you don't need to mud-sling on two different forums now.

I think the entire reason multiple forums are necessary is that we don't all agree on what the ideal forum is.

NH is described, rather accurately, as being a pretty harsh place to hang out. People swear up a storm, frequently lash out at each other, and yet still mostly get along. Stupid people, on the other hand, tend to get deleted rather quickly.

If someone asked me to punish a user here because they tried to get around the cuss filter on NHQ I'd laugh my ass off.

Likewise, if I asked Shindig to punish someone at NHQ because they are painfully stupid and I had to delete them here, he'd better damn well tell me to fuck off.

Thanks. I don't appreciate having shit talked about me behind my back.

The fact that you brought this subject to other forums, Alex, just shows your lack of maturity. It's a GN matter, and deserves to stay there. The fact that I'm a Global Mod on NHQ has nothing to do with this, and it's hardly an excuse to publicize the whole event.

Besides, you guys should be grateful. You've had more posts on GN in the last day (thanks to my thread) than you've had in the last month.

"We need to unite, as a community, and as Leaders of the community, Me IS, TIS, Cx, VACC, DIab, Sparks, whoever would be willing to be Involved, to decide this boys fate on the NIC."

If ATB and IS are leaders of the community, then I'm the Queen of Fucking England. Oh wait, I just saw the last clause; I want to be involved! Sign me up for the Unify the NIC club!

I'm still for the most part confused. The fact that it came without warning was what kinda startled me.

I mean the kid has never posted on the site let alone even registered. Then he has the time to bring back a 3 month old topic and call someone an asshole for an opinion they had 3 months ago??

Yes i am an admin on GN, people lay the blame on me for some reason. I never ever wanted to do this because it has created alot of negativity for us.

I really wanted this to stay away from NH because Nerfhaven has nothing to do with grinch.

Lets just put this aside and move on..

And the sooner the better.

Spark Plug and/or ItalionStallion had better get a handle on their "leadership" team members...they want the recognition as so called leaders of the community, but cannot handle the crap that comes with the glory. It's all part of the deal when you lead anything.

I don't go to GN very often, but ATB's link to the site had me there, and I must say, if that's the quantity and quality of the posts on those forums (which are basically all made by the "leaders" of the forum anyway), then GN has a long and hard road before they acheive their desired result as a "major" Nerf forum.

Had I found a post that looked like crap-throwing at me, especially one that was three months old, I would have just blown it off and moved on without a response. In my profession, I get called all kinds of crap just about every week. I have to live with it. Y'all should do the same.

If that's too hard to handle then I think each of you in leadership (at any forum, not just GN) should ask yourselves if you really are cut out to be a leader.

Just trying to help "leaders". It's what I do.

I'm trying to be fair about this whole thing, but it's hard to side with people whining on my forums about problems in theirs. The term "Global Mod" is just a figure of speech. I'm not gonna police your fucking forums for you.

So this is the only action I'm gonna take in response to their request. The next person to post such a request on these boards is getting muted indeffinately. Hell, if not for the fact that I like most of our users (and therefore can see past some of their more foolish indiscretions) I'd probably just mute everyone with more than 50 posts on GN (foolish indescretions 1-50). Now I'd like to forget about this, so let's let it drop. Please, this should not have been such a big hubub for anyone, and I don't like closing threads.

Ummm...yeah. So I read this thread, and then:

my IQ dropped by 8.

I guess the whole question about Grinch replying is really up to you, but as for me - I wouldn't have posted if I ever came across some shit about a douchebag posting shit about me on another forum, GN - nonetheless. It's not worth your time. Infact, it's not worth anyone's time.

Smacktards need to live and let die. And I fully back up what Cxwq said...everyone at GN needs to stop taking themselves way too fucking seriously.

We need to unite, as a community, and as Leaders of the community, Me IS, TIS, Cx, VACC, DIab, Sparks, whoever would be willing to be Involved, to decide this boys fate on the NIC.

The fuck?

Aye, but how the hell else can we gain anybodys fucking respect? Everyone looks at the GN as a bunch of flaming buttfucking losers. We put our backs into GN< and get nothing out of it.

So yea, we get a little uptight.
