Intamin Fan had a point...

Ok, I'll admit that we've let things go for a good long time in the "What's happened to CoasterBuzz?" topic. It's been very silly, and I'll even admit to participating in it.

However, in the past few days, I've also noticed a lot of stuff spilling outside of that topic, to the point where seemingly-serious posts from new members are getting mocking responses. Now, some of those topics may very well be trolling, but in that case, DON'T feed them. Just ignore them. Just because you suspect that yesterday's troll is back under a new account, doesn't mean the new account needs to be blasted right away. Some people have made accusations about certain Nuts coming back under new names, where I KNOW the new name in question is NOT said Nut. Please, don't assume.

Agreed... I feel some of you have taken advantage of my allowing a little off-season nonsense, and that's not cool. Remember, no one is allowed to be a bigger jackass than me. Thems the roolz.

Carry on...

There is no wtich hunt right now. CPNUT admitted who he is now. It's nice to not have the constant deception.

I apologized to "CP Silly" in the Intamin Fan thread.

Question is, Did the off topic nonsence post relieve or improve the B.S in the other post?

Chuck, who sees nothing wrong with a little hanky panky to relieve the offseason withdraw frustrations.

I may have made a post or two that qualifies, so for my part in the "overflow" I apologize. When I feel the need to be humorous I'll do my best to make sure its contained within an on-topic post.

Moosh - would never dream of trying to be a bigger jackass than Jeff ;)

Wow, Greg, thanks for starting this thread...:).

Yes, there HAS been a noticeable increase in hostility....where did THAT come from....Seriously, new people should be *welcome* here, it really is THAT important. Now we DO know there are the occasional trolls (and they make themselves pretty apparent, like last night, WOW that suXored), just let the mods take care of it. We all know there's a WORLD of difference between someone who is ignorant to *the rules* of forums, and those that are just plain 4$$3$......let's SHOW that we know the difference, be inviting and pleasant, and *spank* only when NECESSARY.....

We can still have LOADS of fun....I promise you....we just need to do it at Brent's expense from now on....;)

I think we can be pretty welcome to newbies that know how to play right. Remember the thread a week or two ago started by "Dwane". I've never seen a message board as friendly as that thread. Now, when a troll starts a thread and replies to himself 2 minutes later, it can be a little different ;)

But even in that case, don't egg him on. It only makes things worse.

What I want to know is who is Mr. Furley, and why does he make the same post twice in two different threads?

nasai - we are no longer permitted to assume that new, strange posters are CPNut, SeederPoint, CPSilly, Robb, Daniel Spooner, etc. etc. Any more violations and you'll be forced to clean up after M:TR.

Read the second post by Intamin Fan in his "What has happened to Coasterbuzz?" thread -- he references me by name.

That's right, even if they do make fishy posts with AOL e-mail addresses, it most certainly does not mean that they are any of the above.

Rob made no such assertion that I can tell regarding the person behind the name of Mr. Furley....but it IS pretty k3w1 to be able to use the same post in more than one thread....;)....not that *I* would ever use *recycled content*....I care too much....:)

J'ai été la lecture "Coasterbuzz" pendant un certain temps maintenant, bien que je juste me sois récemment enregistré. Je voudrais dire que cet endroit est un tas de détritus. J'ai vu ce que d'autres ont fait pour le détruire et je voudrais le reconstruire dans la meilleure image possible. Svp, ne blâmez pas les Chinois.
