Y'know, I've been slacking off as of late... but I have an intense "criminal history" on my side.

Bans:
2003
1. - Nova - March 4th - Doing something that a mod said not to
2. - Nova - April 8th - Creating a "Goodbye" thread
3. Sk8rgirl44 (Nova) - April 14th - Breaking his ban.
4. Nova - Sept. 16 - Posting like a dyslexic retard that had their drink spiked with roofies - one week - Sandamnit
5. Will Smith/Adam - Spamming/repeated failure to use the edit button and instead just make a new post - one week
6. Nov 14th - Nova - purposefully going off-topic/sass - 4 days - me

2004
7. Jan 1st - Nova - 1 month - BanMe Tag - Moi.
8. Jan 10th - jarvis - Nova smurf - account has been permabanned
9. Jan 19th - Tyrone - hi im new, being a dumbass and generally sucking. 300 days. Tyrone2 is not banned, because he's a funny guy.
10. Feb 18th - Nova - using moderator tags, two months. I know usually one, but this isn't his first offence of doing such a thing, and he's also a waste.
11. Feb 28th - Nova - Feb.28 - Evading ban by creating smurf account - permabanned, finally.
12. Nov 23 04 - Nova - Banme - 1 month

2005
13. Jan 09 05 - Nova - shitty attempt at flaming in ID - 2 days warning shot across the bow
14. Jan 20 05 - Nova - he was bothering me and I didn't get into PSYC305 because the teacher is a bitch, so now I'm going to keep him out of INTLv3.0 because I am a bitch, too - one day

20. Mar 27 07 - 2 days
21. Apr 03 07 - Adam banned by Dimi - 365 days total for repeated offenses and obvious disregard for rules. Saying "lol" and "im better guyz promiz" doesn't bypass breaking the rules.

Salamando, because of his hilarious bitchfighting with stormraider, and because he always talked about how much cocaine he did, and because he was a pretty cool guy on AIM. (we talked about doing drugs a lot)

Being a horrible person doesn't automatically make you a villain. Being a villain actually takes commitment.

Salamando sure had commitment.

He followed stormraider around to every thread he posted in to childishly insult him for like a year or something.

Sally was awesome.

Adam is just a fucking loser.

People hated Sally because he was such a pain in the ass, BUT, people also liked him because he was funny about it (in some forumers' eyes). Nova is just an unfunny unoriginal waste. That's why no one really cares about him.

Plus, Sally might still have a pet dog who is alive. Not sure I can say the same for Nova... =/

Salamando was a huge dork who everyone made fun of when he first registered, though.

He eventually found his niche as the hilariously persistent asshole.

Well let's analyze that poll:

Adam - While banned numerous times, has not actually caused INTL to shutdown or for forumers to go away. He is the village idiot. A friendly, and relatively active village idiot. As much as he's an attention whore, the rest of INTL accepts that and occasionally encourages it for the sake of entertainment.

Vissario - In the time he has been here, he has had a profound effect on INTL. It is evident that forumers have gone away either directly because of his actions (Skye) or because of his presence (pretty much everyone else). In a time when INTL is within stagnation, he may be one of the factors that drive people to not stay. However, forumers understand his disposition, and find him annoying, but lacking. He is seen as more piteous than he is of being bad or evil.

Jimmy - Other than getting on the nerves of Sandamnit, Adam and a few others, he isn't really evil, bad or immoral. He is merely aggressive, selective and cynical. Certainly not villainous.

Surt - Other than the occasional time where he pisses people off because of his views, Surt is generally likeable. More so than most forumers. It is in part because of his personality and opinions that people like him. He is usually quite blunt, witty and charismatic. He has a lot in common, in that respect, to some of INTL's most key original members, such as wheezy and PR. Surt fits in well.

Sally - While his actions have led to the closure of INTL, it does not seem that he has actually turned people off from INTL. More often than not, the fact that he is a legend here suggests that he has become an INTL internet meme. Even though INTL had closed during times which Sally was active, it is not as important as Sandamnit's own feelings and perceptions of INTL at those times. Given the nature of Sandamnit then, it is highly likely that contemporary forumers would much more easily aggravate that Sandamnit to close the forums now. Sally was much like a Fark/4chan forumer for the time he was here. He has more in common with how Tazzo and BB act, then of a revolutionary or a troll. In this respect, he can be seen as no more villainous for his actions, than of those of any aforementioned forumer.


I could name many others that have done things which may or may have led to INTL closing, to forumers leaving, to acts of "evil", to flame wars or drama. I, Snowy, ETH, Vervet, FA, among so many others can be included in that. The problem is, it's very unlikely to narrow down certain events to the actions of one person, and then to analyze that person in a wholly negative concept. Since most of us have been here for years, some of actually going on 6 or more years, the youngest "newbies" onto somewhere up to a year or two, we can perceive of eachother's weaknesses and strengths fairly indiscretely. You have a multitude of relationships, contributions and other factors that don't narrow down what exactly each forumer on simple terms.

I can take for the example Vervet, Snowy, kayte or dani. As much as I have had negative feelings towards all of them, and in some conceptions I still do, I can't deny that there have been things they've done for INTL that have been for the positive. I can't say that without them, INTL would be better off. On the contrary, it would be a clear estimate that it would be quite the opposite. Perhaps in the comedic aspects, someone could be a villain. In the concept of those who try to do ill towards INTL, well then the only thing I can truly call a villain are the servers of INTL's past. 2006 rings a bell here.

It seems like most people had more or less left even before he registered.

For Skye (and to a certain degree Kayte), there's no doubt. She left mostly because of vissario. He was the catalyst that finally made her say fuck it.

For others, it's a number of factors for which vissario is occasionally used as a scapegoat for not visiting as much before. These factors could be anything: growing older, loosing touch, a lack of activity here, no interesting topics, moving on, a better more intensive social life, lack of drama, "slow" server, too much work, too much class... the list goes on. I have heard of vissario being a turn off. There are others that are turn offs, certainly. I can imagine the move from Sandamnit to IF0/TRC was a turn-off for quite a few. I can imagine I have been a turn off. I can imagine Snowy has been one, too. Vissario is brought up by those that bring him up, partly because he agitates people. He entices people to respond, and often changes the thread or makes up the largest portion of them. The reason he's in the FAQ so much, is because what he says and how we react makes up most of the threads here. Vissario has become entertainment for most of us.

For those who haven't gotten used to vissario, can't accept vissario, yet find that by ignoring him they are ignoring our responses in the process (and a number of the active threads); to them, vissario is a disruption. They would probably much prefer a case where they can enter a thread, give an opinion, and leave. Lurk maybe, because that's what most of us tend to do, and prefer to do with the given factors that are effecting how much time we spend here, and what we actually end up posting. But he aggravates them. Puts them on the spot, drives them to respond and get embroiled in 'internet business'.

It's ultimately good for INTL, because vissario does help to keep people posting, but to some he's not. I'd expect nothing less than for vissario to masturbate to this. But it just shows again vissario's piteous nature that he'd do so.

It's just a strange nature of INTL. We accept people after a certain amount of hazing, and they soon enough become a part of this forum - like a form of borg assimilation. It's just that, we are also selective. A lot of us can't accept a wave of new regulars in this forum that easily. We are more content with our community of people who've been here for years, that bringing in one or two people into the fold is okay. It would be particularly interesting, and I'd expect no less, that while there will be people to go and the occasional person to replace them and be fully integrated into this community, that there will still be people here who will be in their 60s or 70s. That, given if INTL survives the next 40 years, we would still be bickering as old gents.
