Morriss' last post in the thread sums it up nicely from what I can tell.

But then I'm new, so what do I know....;)

Dunno, just seems to me there are a good few people like myself still interested in reading about it, even if it is just to give us a chance to have a chuckle at al's posts! :-)

I guess I can sort of understand the locking, but whatever happened to "if you dont like the thread, dont read it"?

Instead of one thread where it was all contained, no doubt we'll get several when something major there happens, which will lead to more lockings and a culture of over-modding.

/may be over reacting.

Thing is, the guy would be creaming himself if he knew that EG'ers who had upped sticks in part because of him were then discussing his every move.

The guy's a cock - why give him the attention he craves?

That would be my take on it anyway.

I guess you have a point, but in the same respect I couldn't care too much what he thinks, or whether he's loving the attention or not, I just want to be able to laugh at his posts :)

I can see that argument too - unintentional comedy gold from a prize bell-end is still comedy gold!

Personally I didn't like what the thread had turned into. It did reek of "us and them" a bit at times, and this is the AATG forum, not the EG forum. If you want to have a laugh at someone on the EG forum...why not post it on the EG forum?

Didn't really care either way whether it was locked or not but I can see why it's been done.

I don't post there anymore - I only brought it up in that thread as I know a *lot* of the EG mods hang out here - so I was pointing out the latest sock so they can do their thing and ban it.

Sure - I'm not fussed either, and TBH I think "why was this thread locked" threads like this are are pretty daft, as it's generally pretty obvious why threads are locked anyway and don't really need another thread about it.

As WOPR said let it drop.

I really really want to get away from this us and them shit. Rauper knows and understands that we're not here to muscle in on his (massive) empire, and he respects that - similarly what goes on at EG is fine and dandy as a conversation topic but as quite a few have rightly said, can you imagine what the idiot's ego would do if he knew we were STILL bitching about him after all this time.

Sorry if it annoyed anyone - the last thing I want to do is turn AATG into some over-modded draconian place that just pisses everyone off. If you want, vote on it being unlocked again as it does smack a bit of heavy handedness admittedly and I really don't want that to be what it ends up being like here. It's just so bloody good to have you lot here, you've no idea how good sometimes.

/locks this too

;)

Seriously though. If you want to know what's happening at EG, go there and look. If you've got something to say about someone that posts there, go and tell 'em.

I just think it's about time AATG became AATG without the added baggage of the 'ex-EG'ers club' suffix.

I think I said that on probably the day that I actually signed up to this forum, couldn't agree more (although I appreciate the fact that I posted in the now locked thread).

Yes. In fact, anyone who mentions it again get's auto-shunned 200 times. I wrote a little program.

Nah, I appreciate all of your points, it's just from my own personal selfish reasons I do genuinely enjoy reading albundys's posts, and rarely read EG enough (or rather, the 360 threads) to ever see the posts for myself.

Not really. I think we've got past the stage where either side are worried about people jumping ship. As I said, Rauper lurks here and reads what goes on and I've emailed him too so he's fully clued up on the state of play.

As far as AlBundy goes though, don't flatter his ego even more by giving a shit. It's just not worth it guv.

Stealth modding FTmotherfuckingW!

I find it interesting that those who are against the "us and them" side of things don't mind differentiating themselves from the "crowd" by declaring their mod status. :P

Ahhh come on, it doesn't take a member of the "slow reader class to figure who some of the mods are.. :)

Ignore me, I'm in a grumpy mood having had next to no sleep. As I said in the "mod behaviour" thread, it's obvious who staff mods are, but all other mods should try and be discrete about their actions, as Hairy requested.

One good thing, as Hairy said, is that only he actually knows who all the mods are! Not even the mods know. :)

Edit: I feel for you MH, no sleep here either. Well, techinally I've spelt, but sleep apneoa seems to be back with a mother fucking vengeance ATM. :(

Ethan keeping you up?

Unlock it. Mod people being arseholes by all means but not that thread for being what it is. It's just us talking about EG. If people come across in a way you don't like in that thread, tell them and they'll most likely stop.

Heh, most ironic typo ever? ;)

Yeah, he's been sleeping through for ages but recently he's been waking up at 4am and screaming the place down for an hour. It's a strange feeling because despite being absolutely shattered it's impossible to be frustrated when looking at the little fella. :)

Got him to sleep at about 5:30 and then at 6 I woke up thinking someone was trying to break in. A quick walk around the house with a squash raquet later confirmed I was dreaming things, but the adrenalin was pumping by then. :(

Sorry to hear the apnia is back. That's damn scary stuff.

Yeah, it's invitable that people will talk about EG, best to keep it all in one place.

All that talk about that nobody (I've never said a word to him or even noticed one of his posts) is a bit stupid though, considering he sounds like the kind of person who touches himself each time someone mentions his name.
