RE: How stupid would you feel now if you were Cap'n Carageous?
One thing I must say I find amusing is when we first arrived over here and he posted that pyschotic thread lambasting us all, he stated self-prophetically that the purpose of shuting down the Shop was to get rid of all the riff raff and bad elements so it could reopen in some purified form, and then the first thread he posts at the new Shop gets whacked and he gets admonished for being a troublemaker over at benzforum at the same time. It seems the general consensus is that riff raff and troublemaker turned out to be him. Justice is sweet.
His personal vendetta against me especially has left him with egg all over his face. The actual problem at MS was not so much the personalities, of which there were extreme examples, but the total lack of moderation. I exchanged a few emails with Bill when the whole deal went down and they just felt they could not properly moderate it with the resources they had, and it was getting so out of hand that they were starting to worry about liability issues. They have restored it with what looks like the greater level of moderation a popular site like that needs. Cap'n decided to wage some kind of personal campaign blaming me for the shutdown, and in the end he and his fellow crusadering trolls showed who the real troublemakers are - those who wished certain viewpoints surpressed, in our case a group of scatter brained right wingers who were angry they could not intelligently be part of a political dialogue due to a lack of brain capacity. They displayed a meanness and pettiness that contrasted badly with those on all sides of the political spectrum who come here in an attempt to debate the issues intelligently, which is our duty to do as citizens of a democracy. To prevent others from doing just that is the work of fascist bully boys or communist KGB. Cap'n and the other trolls did a great job of displaying which class they belonged to, and has made himself well known for it in the process, proven by the quick shutdown of his very first thread, typical bully-boy crap directed at me. Since they are also wise to him over at benzforum.com, sadly he will probably make his home here, where his antics are more acceptable. Perhaps he and his other troll pals can start threads about each other, and spend eternity in an circle sneer, or in the other circle it was suggested he belonged to in another thread.
