Looks like my post got eaten, but this is the nice thing about communities related to 4chin: they're  much less tolerant of the personality cult BS.
Transcend the crass demands of ego and identity and become one with the shitpost, this is the meaning of anonymity; to never take credit for even the greatest of your works.

What in the fuck. I go to school for a day and everything comes apart at the seams an hour before I get home?

Yep. Toady will probably sell DF to Zynga by the end of the week, the forum will have ads and Other Games and FG will cease to exist because it's viewed as competition. It's doom man. Doom!

Now that LSP is gone we'll all have to pitch in to keep the shitpost boat afloat from now on.

If I had to guess, LSP was banned over the European thread when a discussion went a bit too far. Someone mentioned "If we're posting dubious sources" and LSP posted before that several times in quick succession; I'm guessing LSP responded with a "dubious source" in kind that happened to be really, really racist.

I said 'slightly dubious sources' like non-official sources or something casual like Wikipedia.

Funnily enough, I know the Zynga thing probably can't happen as Toady has talked about how people are offering him hundreds of thousands of dollars cash for the Dwarf Fortress IP all the time. Gotta pony up the mils to buy DF, I guess.

But seriously, "Racist URL"? This is why Toady's slash-and-burn moderation style sits badly with me, there's know way to know anything about anything that happens.

I'd say let Taw do it later.

If she came back somehow or for some reason I don't want to know what kind of shit would happen if she saw Yoink of all people started another one.
Methinks you tread into dangerous territory.

I'm at the point where my time being here is likely limited. I really don't care.
This is the sort of thing that makes me not particularly sad about this.  It was often a passive aggressive happiness, except for the looong intervals where Janet wasn't involved at all.
"Place where people post happy things" is great.  "lol inuendo" and "if you don't like what we like get the fuck out ^_^" not so much.

It was pretty weird when Shadowdump posted and Owlga called him a piece of shit...  And that was that!  I get that he and Janet had some sort of falling out, but it was just confusing, uncomfortable, and explicitly against forum guidelines.  Yet nobody complained.

Also, wasn't LSP's personal text literally "all hail the fuhrer", except in German?  Dude was shitposting a lot, antagonistically even.  Maybe he should have listened to the warnings.

So yeah.  Bye Janet and LSP.  Pretty sure this sort of thing is inevitable when you become a forum VIP...  I think more time away will be good for you.

And Owlga, I hope you don't leave if you don't want to :/  But I get it, friends come first.

I....uh. So, just to be clear...

We lost Janet, LSP, and Owlga is on the green (internet) mile?

HOW DID I MISS ALL OF THIS? I GOT HOME EARLY TODAY.

I'm finding this thread weirdly enjoyable over the past couple of pages. It's weird.
Today is weird. Everything's weird. My life is weird. WTF, I'm in the United States. Just remembered that. Ain't that weird?

Dude, I fucking blinked and all this stuff had happened by the time I opened my eyes.

Somehow Yoink looks as much a pirate as the man dressed as one. Probably even has rum stashed near him somewhere

When did Bay12 turn into Reddit? Jeez.

Can anyone who actually watched the catastrophe unfold explain what happened in a way that doesn't require me spending an hour going back through the pages?

I will admit I likely took things too far calling him out like that. But I still stand by my opinion and will even repeat it if asked, since there's no point in attempting to retract it.

And for the most part GC kept saying you shouldn't piss on other peoples happy more than telling people to get out. I think the only time she outright said that sort of thing was when people posted really objectionable content, usually relating to wanting to hurt or actually hurting other people.

He already told people in the thread to "dial it down" at which point LSP began shitposting all over the place. It was kind of inevitable at that point; whatever they linked to just pushed it too far.

From my point of view the happy thread was 20% people posting happy things, with the other 80% being animu, weird innuendo, incessant shitposting/dank meme storm and ~being passive aggressive is supah cool guyse~ so, nothing of value was lost, IMHO.
