Let us not allow the veil of revisionist history to color what really happened here.

The problems were several. A single user attacking new users for having the gall to ask questions, correcting others spelling, and playing grammar nazi as well, employing an abrasive and contentious style, he went the step further and began attacking others for their post organization and layout asking them to better organize their ideas, and had also attempted to create a chilling effect on dialogue concerning fictional and imaginary creatures by presenting himself as an expert in that arena of fictional and imaginary creatures.

I personally will say that if this user had ever demonstrated any basic respect for decorum or etiquette none of this would ever have happened. I did initiate the request to have the User removed from the board and in my conversation with Admin they genuinely seemed to be perplexed as how to handle the situation.

Would this person have respected a CofC had one been in place. No one knows for sure, but a better question might be this, do we really believe that this is the first forum the user has been a participant member of?

This stuff is common sense and this individual just made a habit of acting out and playing the part of bully. I chose not to bury my head in the sand...

As regards to user DeathLefty coincidentally almost every one of her early posts in a variety of threads was concerning Rabidfox and Rabid's interest in different threads. They all had a very revealing template to them:

"Didn't Rabid once say..."

"Didn't Rabid know where to order..."

"I agreed with that guy Rabid..."

"While I have no experience that guy Rabid really seemed to be an expert..."

DeathLefty would have us believe that she was following the board from the beginning (including every esoteric thread that Rabid participated in) but never created a username or logged in unil the very morning that Rabidfox was removed.

She then coincidentally went on to post in most of Rabid's old haunts and threads following up on his comments...

Give me a break...

If we all are going to move forward the first place to start is with a little disclosure. I understand at the time that Rabid wanted to be a part of the community again, and the Admin at my request had removed his priviliges, albeit temporarily. Let's call it no harm, no foul. Rabid would go a long way after all his posting about honesty and truth to just nip this one in the bud. A simple "I made a mistake, but the truth is more important than the lie" would go a very long way I believe.

I can't imagine the sillyness of trying to maintain two indentities not to mention the internal conflict of someone faced with their own hypocricy who so ardently respects truth and honesty.

Remember Rabid, Mark Twain said that no one had the memory to make an effective liar...

You haven't pulled it off effectively yet. A couple of people are giving DeathLefty the benefit of the doubt, buy if truth and honesty really are as intrinsically important to you as you have claimed, do the right thing.

I've made worse mistakes than this believe me. Right now you have no integrity on the board, correct that mistake...

You actually have a voice that can be a very valuable member of the community within the boundaries of civilized posting.

You just cannt play nice can you Zug?
Always have to be pointing the finger?
Now Zug, let me lay the CoC warning on you.
If L and the others that created and signed on the CoC are worth their salt, then this will be over.
Your constant accusations are tiring and not contributing to the MasterMaze discussion.
This is the test of the CoC.

Pardon my being norbid, but I'm always curious about the phenomena of flame wars. Could anyone email a concise explanation of what this was all about?

While we all may want to and probably justly let it lay dead, I know for a fact that about a year ago (08-12-2008) which would have been about two years after the whole debacle that, the Encephalitic Lyssavirus afflicted Vulpes was still on some personal quest to ruin Dwarvenforge.

There is another forum that I frequent that he would visit occasionaly, and when Gamma came out I mentioned it as he said it was one of the "needed things" for sci-fi. I got a reply that was basically a rant about his personal war against DF...
In the end I think he actually ended up leaving that board, not banned, but just left becuase his ideas were not welcomed by all as some sort of all knowing being with the answers to all things.
