He was banned soon after.
I did it for my bro Anarkex/punkomix. He said something stupid in the thread, something which icycalm probably would've banned him for, and I tried to defuse it. I had an account there, so I posted, got myself banned, and Anarkex is still there. I really don't mind, I only lurk his forums anyway. I think that account was several months old before I posted that. I can still lurk and read what icycalm has to say.
AshfordPride's posts in this thread actually sound an awful lot like Icycalm on his own forum,
Thanks, I'd like to think that if I could be even a tiny iota as effective as him in expressing his ideas and making them interesting to read th-
if you removed the reasoned argument and passionate beliefs, and replaced them with "guys I'm just doing it for the lulz." Which on reflection doesn't make for very interesting discussion.
You're really going to write off everything I said as something as stupid as that. If I was trolling, I wouldn't be able to back up anything I had to say. I'm not a troll, I'm not a strawman, I'm a flesh and blood person of moderate intelligence who is capable of expressing and supporting his opinions!
Anarkex is just a misogynistic ass
I can't wait for him to wake up so he can see this.
I won't reply to this paragraph, despite how much I really, really want to.
You'll notice I'm not engaging in the topic of the thread,
That'd seem adequate reason to have you removed from it, wouldn't it? Come into a thread, act like a massive tool, and then announce how much of a massive tool you intend to be. I mean, how did you expect me to respond to this, Salt? Obviously the forum is against me, so a person coming into this thread and posting a wall of insults against the OP because you disagree with them isn't going to be reprimanded or even looked down upon by the "tigsource family", but at the very least Salt you'd have to realize that it's not going to HELP.
You're just mad. That's okay. It's okay to get mad when someone has repeatedly offered opposition to your argument.
You brought me and a fair portion of this thread down to your level. Congratulations! You win.
The only person who can bring you down is, well, yourself. I have never behaved in a manner that was destructive to this thread. We've kept up this conversation for several pages, with long, thought out posts from each sides filled with passion and a real dedication to indie games, however they choose to express it...
And then there's you, who thinks it's acceptable to come into my thread and act like a complete ass because, when in Rome. Stop ignoring what I have to say because it's insulting to you. You knew how I was going to reply to your posts, you had several pages of conversations to draw upon. Don't bait me with shit like "Oh please do
correct me if anything is wrong~ and then get mad when I tell you you're wrong. Your points are muddled, confusing, and at times it's very hard to tell whose side of the argument you're even on. The schlock you've been slinging this entire thread has been equally insulting to me, but I at least entertained it.
Salt, you were the reason I locked this thread before. Because I knew that you were trouble.
