    I am a second chance kind of person... willing to give people the benefit of the doubt. Ghost_Rhayne, perfect example. He was on the path of being booted from here. I took a look, talked with him a few times. He got involved with PSU and now he is one of the most valuable members.

    People can change... the ones who can't don't make it long here if asked back.
    Wow, really? I never would've guessed it! lol

    Problem was back then, his posts were deliberately overboard in 360 based threads and he was constantly being reported for trolling. Exaggerated or not, that's how it was coming across.

    Since I got here I rarely ever visit the 360 forum so I can't argue against that.

    Tell us how you REALLY feel . You're right though...When you step back from the sad sack "my leviathan is bigger than your worm" type arguments, you see how childish it is...We have many young stars who engage in this still, but they are a dying breed. I said on my 1st pod cast appearance...PSU is pretty awesome these days and mods spend more time deleting bots than infracting.

    Me staying here was mostly due to your messages, thanks pal!

    **** was hectic back then though, in my defence. Things have settled down but there was a time when it was a ****ty place to be for the people the site was designed for. I got a few messages over PSN asking why a Sony fan like myself hung around a "cesspit" like PSU and it became clear that as a PlayStation site, we didn't seem very appealing to members cause of all the bickering...So I jumped in more often to give back to those who only ever posted negative articles in the Sony section, or stealth trolled. Sure it was reckless and disruptive, but more than anything I wanted to show the lurkers that PSU was still a place for Sony fans to chill out.

    I still do this today, albeit in a more creative, productive and non rule breaking manner. LOL

    That's the reason why I pushed for you to stay. I don't know how it started but the majority of articles at the time didn't make Playstation fans welcomed. It wasn't the same, Playstation forums I originally enjoyed. This place really needs members like you!

    You used the same method I did. The only difference is when I drugged them, I got distracted and raped them instead.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Yeah, thank you. I'm glad I snapped out of that COA though...Had I been banned...I wouldn't be where I am now, amongst the best community around, writing about my fav game, playing it with my fellow PSUers and getting sent to Iceland to visit its developers. It's just incredible how things changed for me.

    What do you mean "wanted"? I still want him banned.

    Seriously though, I do prefer second chances for people. What irks me are those that clearly haven't changed - when that happens, I go mental.

    Looking back at some old threads, it's interesting how things change and how things were. For example, a poster like Rad was seen as anti Playstation, and certain respectable posters we have now, were the scourge of the forums.

    While we're reminiscing, I still miss the old crew for the Ausise roll call thread. Seeing how Dave's forum site is defunct, wondering now where those guys have gone off to.

    Im gonna guess most probably moved to Neogaf, though it would of been awesome if they came back here, we had a UK rival thread for awhile but it was never as good as the original aussie one.

    I think they changed It to select members council. I think It was senior members council. Don't quote me though.

    Yeah...we are trained really well. Our day starts at about 5 am sharp. We wake up then have to delete 20 spam bots in under a minute. Then we vigorously read the forums looking for unreported spam bots. The next day is rinse and repeat. Our training is hardcore and rigorous, but I think it's paying off. I can waste spam bots with just a thought now.
