  • An Empire Should Have Its Darth...

    I just discovered this morning that Darth Friendly has been banned. I discovered this by attempting to PM him, and also to search for posts using his forum name. I have no clue whatsoever what precipitated this, but I think this forum will be poorer without him. I am not witty or clever or anything of the sort, but even I could tell that it was mostly a stand-up routine, a "character" of his on the MDA, if you will. The dude had a serious side, and you will find that here on the MDA as well.

    Perhaps this thread will end up with ME getting deleted - I can't tell the future. One of the things that made me want to join the MDA was the fact that people here can be real people, with all their foibles and humor and petty troubles and whatnot - and other members can always be counted on to call them out on BS posts and comments without resorting to kicking members of the tribe out into the proverbial wilderness. It is this "realness" that makes me trust some of you enough to take your advice into my own reality here in the hills of Appalachia and put it into practice.

    So, members of the MDA, I guess this thread is now open for business...

    I miss Darth too, part of the old crowd. Everyone knew his wit and sarcasm and the forum was richer for it. I would prefer that colour than some of the smugness that prevails.

      People like Darth are what make this forum worthwhile. If we strip out everyone interesting because someone gets butthurt, this place is going to be boring really soon. Sadly, I've seen other forums go down this road- it is very difficult to rebuild a community once it's been ravaged. It's just sad.

          A couple of dominant smug birds started that process two years ago. But let them live their lives on here and patronise to the new souls and attention seeking teens with multiple accounts. It was a fun spirited EVEN community years ago. Alas...

                How am I part of this?

                Oh and I agree this forum is losing is free going feel amberlee is right. The hypocrisy of those people is astounding and they encourage a humour less and more pc driven forum where instead of saying oh well w/e people go crying to the mods like its teir mom and someone stole their milk.

                    It is. We have a couple of marms who think they run the joint. I don't really engage anymore, I can't stand them and I miss the old vibe. I will miss reading Darth's colourful contributions.

                      I miss the old atmosphere around here as well. A lot of the fun characters have backed way off or left the site.

                          Maybe we should try entice some oldbies back and ask some of those smug people to shut up for a while!

                              I'm with Blackcatbone. If we can get them to shut up, then the interesting people will come back.
