"grumble is actually a psychotic 40+ something weirdo who lives off the government doll and does nothing but play armageddon all day every day. he has no aspirations, he has no real meaning in his life. only armageddon, getting drunk, and having bizarre pseudo-relationships with the people who play with his characters, of which there is no line between reality and fiction. he exclusively plays elves. i cant make this stuff up." -topkekm8s

He probably deleted his post here and put it on the GDB because he knows the community here isn't going to buy into the demonizing he was trying to pitch. Think of it like feeding scraps to the pigs at the GDB; they're more eager to gobble it up.
i saw SleeplessinZalanthas's post here. now deleted. reason? can we not handle dissent even if mods think its lying/bullshit?
his post got deleted and he was banned for doxxing. he knew this when i banned him and told him it was for doxxing.
i have always protected player and staff RL information on the board and moderated for doxxing. even during the wikileak drop. nyr's had personally identifiable information dropped that i've moderated for. i've deleted links to player and staff accounts. i've deleted information outing the sexuality of players in the past because they went whacko over it.
he's more than welcome to drop RL names on the GDB. arm staff seem to be fine with that even though they fear for their lives when 10+ year old information gets accidentally released and then quickly censored. but i'm not going to support some random person signing up for the forums and dropping the RL name of someone, especially when that person could be whoever he has a grudge against.
i enjoy the gdb thread because it shows how desperate the posters are there to try to fit me into whatever narrative theyve built up in their head.
"wow, just wow!!! jcarter is trying to censor anything condemning people we don't like!!!" they scream while ignoring the thousands of posts that fly counter intuitive to that.
For those who don't read the GDB, this is the post from the GDB:
blanked out by jcarter
christ almighty this isn't a good look, lol
i cant figure out why this guys boring post has gotten nyr-like treatment here
whats threatening about it? what happened to the brass balls normally strutted around here?
you can talk about it all you want, just don't bring rl identities into it. hence why the only things that have gotten removed are the post itself. if you want to repost it woth the name redacted be my guest

Where's the gdb sycophants calling that this personality be censored and banned for exposing IRL information? My god the WORLD ended when there accidentally was a display of staff information; but now this guy can do it and be lauded? That's utter hypocrisy.
The double think is so strong here, it can't be cut through. Two wrongs make a right to the Armageddon community and staff. My take is, if you're going to piss on the mattress, you better be prepared to sleep on it. And this guy, showing up out of nowhere to pour gas on a burnt-out fire (that THEY said was burnt-out, mind) seems so convenient for their petty little confirmation bias. If they can do anything to censor or discard critique that isn't hamstrung by disgusting submissiveness and ass-kissing, they'll do it.
If what has been posted is true, that [real name] released the most recent information (since I know that he released the earlier information),
the brave martyr dreamingofzalanthas is trying to blame a hack on a guy he knew 20 years ago and isn't even sure.
[real name] isn't barka's real name.
i've deleted photos put up of nyr taken from his facebook, deleted a thread outing the sexuality of a player that i loathe, and spent hours making sure the wikileaks didn't have RL info of a team of staff i don't give two shits about.
but hey let's not interrupt a good chance to confirm our biases here. jcarter and his band of terrible awful players that I AM GLAD DONT PLAY HERE ANYMORE just dont want to see the truth!!!! as if anyone here gives two shits on how the leaks happened.

They can send the most kissass, staff-fellating GDBers over here to argue for days about their opposing views, and you don't ban them-- even after you've made it clear that this forum is your own little internet fiefdom and will ban whomever you please for whatever reason.
But you ban someone for namedropping, and suddenly you're no better than Nyr.
the funny part is ever since i pointed out one player's account who posts here and got some strong reactions about it i've been pretty careful with people's privacy.
like when i caught a helper that's still active in arm coming over here and trying his hardest to troll. or multiple other Armers. who never actually got banned. or the ex-staff member who posted here and spilled tons of beans but now decides we are terrible awful people. and i didn't even call out the ex-imm who was posting his opinion under both his staff account and player account.
glad metekillot is finally posting about why he actually got banned though:
They banned me for using the word 'kike' to illustrate how one may be offended by their flagrant use of the word 'faggot' to describe disliked Armageddon staff members.
"guys i was only using throwing around slurs IRONICALLY and to teach them the error of their ways!!!!"

Why isn't metekillot banned from the GDB for proudly virtue-signalling his use of a racist term? The context doesn't matter here, just like it didn't matter to any of the other persons who were silenced on the GDB; but since metekillot throws around degrading racial slurs in jest, he's able to brag about it? Disgusting.
What speaks to me is that this Sleepless guy went out of his way to post on this website before he posted on the GDB. That means, like it or not, when he searched for Armageddon, this website came up -- and he felt compelled to post here with his holier-than-thou message, being so obnoxiously apologetic for a non-factor that happened over ten years ago.
And he just had to use the power word. Name this, name that. As if it adds to his credibility, or his message, somehow? And now evilcabbage (someone who's never made sense before, and infact prides himself on delivering ludicrous counter-argument points) is saying the power word is incorrect?
It's obvious this guy has an agenda, or is so disconnected from reality (like a lot of the staffers are) that he's bought into the sensationalist pseudo-platforms the GDB have established to shut out all disagreement from their circlejerk.
sneazy: Started playing with ArmSolo again. Mapping the zones against newer maps and chasm area mostly looks good. If anyone else is using it, I will make a thread and post results. Else, I'll keep doing my own thang.

mehtastic: Hi everyone. Back for a bit to catch up on how things have been and talk about Arm with a less angry and more mellow voice. Hope y'all have been doing well.

delerak: gonna hijack your thread to start a fight..
Jun 26, 2019 2:06:50 GMT -5
mehtastic: Haha. We actually agree more than we disagree, but I'm down to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of multiplaying in general.

thesandlady: Are the days of 250 unique logins a week long gone, or is there a chance Arm could get back to it's old numbers?
Jul 12, 2019 13:05:29 GMT -5
mehtastic: thesandlady I think those days are long gone at this point. People will say it's because MUDs in general are on the decline, but there are a few text based games that see slight growth. Arm's problems hold it back from player recruitment and retention.
Jul 13, 2019 13:23:07 GMT -5
delerak: arm can get the numbers back up. you need good leaders running clans for one which it seems arm is lacking right now.
Jul 24, 2019 11:52:44 GMT -5
mehtastic: Well, that's partly why I said Armageddon can't get back the 250+ weekly logins days that it used to have: because Armageddon lacks good leaders. I would argue that staff actively suppress leadership and don't give players ways to grow into such roles.
