it is not just the forums. there are to many people running to C&A to report people for calling them a bad name, or reporting people for comments made in games they aren't in.

we use to say 'suck it up cupcake, this is a wargame'. then it was 'FAMO'. now the 'offender' gets banned.


Exactly my point. There is now a snitch culture here that will be impossible to get rid of. And its always the liberals that want freedom of speech taken away.

I used to enjoy reading the forums here but now its like a young liberal party forum. I blame Andy Dufresne for turning this forum into a bland inane place where all views are not allowed. Employing him was CC's biggest mistake.


Would you frequent OT more if we added a few more dictators?


This is a typical inane post!!! If you're not a liberal you're a dictactor.

He's obviously trying to be humouress but seriously how much can you bother replying to such drivel?


But you did reply... I'm simply too much dictator for one forum.


So, what's this about AndyDufresne, the CC Forum Butcher and Destroyer of Lost Children?

You and I have been here since 2008, but we've reached different conclusions on what affects the livelihood of the forum. Based on my observations, AndyD has been a mild moderator, but I'm not sure how much he bothered to micromanage his moderators.

Stringent enforcement seems to have been the biggest problem, but that's been relaxed--at least in the OT--thanks to local, non-mod efforts.

In my opinion, people come and go, like waves. You see it at bars, grocery stores, retailers, and so on. Perhaps, some of them have run out of things to say, or maybe they've got more valuable things to do--whatever that may be. The alleged decrease in activity is likely to be beyond CC's control.


The different conclusions we've reached are due to our different views we have on the politics. Andy dufresne has turned a world domination based game site into a Walt Disney forum. Cute for kids absolutely bland for adults.


Ah, I remember you:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=180364&p=3944420#p3944420

You constantly perceive that people are attacking (welfare) liberalism--even though they aren't. It's not a useful approach because it leads you into misunderstanding what the very topic is. Hopefully, you can stop narrowing so many topics into attacks against being 'liberal'.


What are you talking about? I've noticed that you just argue for the sake of it. Mrchangsta whom likes to talk seriously about this site and strategy has a fool like you coming into his threads and talking gibberish. My advice to you is visit an online dating site and relieve some of that pent up fustration because your need to be perceived as funny/intelligent falls miserably short.

That wasn't too bad. You're still stuck in Misunderstanding Mode, but I've said my bit, and hopefully you become a better person in the RL or the Internets. Good luck.

In my first 10 games, 4 were freestyle foggy classics. I enjoyed them enough to stay around :)

I smoked loads of it when I was younger. Just gave me a bad head and made me sluggish most of the time.
