I was thinking of a list of categories, and then people would submit their votes for which thread/who best fits the category.

Boring. Hoi polloi are what they are for a reason. Once the exceptional are capable of judging one another.

This place has gotten boring without Shiny. I no longer have any urge or need to make outrageous posts and this place lacks the amazing spark that Shiny used to give it. Maybe I'll pull a William and rage quit. Anyhoo, we ought to organize a forum-wide effort or protest to get Shiny un-banned. I'd willingly gamble my the fate of my own account if it meant bringing him back. I propose we form a petition and submit it to one of the site administrators.

I suspect such a move would be as successful as the campaign to have the Irish Hermit unbanned.  :P

TBF, Shiny added a lot more substance and style here than Irish Hermit ever did. I was hoping Trisagion's absence and now Kerdy's would make up for the loss of Shiny, but I guess I didn't realize how interesting posts heavily outweigh those which are boring.

Better Irish Hermit's wisdom and knowledge than Achronos' juvenile rants. And TheTrisagion's absence is the direct result of Achronos' "style and substance".  >:(

Anyway, last time I checked, this site is called OrthodoxChristianity.net.

Where most seem to come to get their adrenaline kick, kill time, give others their adrenaline kick, gossip, judge, you know the stuff people do all the time.

You can call it whatever you want, it doesn't change the what it is. And I am not sure what "Orthodox" means here much anymore given how broadly it is defined. Maybe there is truth to the True Orthodox folks after all.

And Trisagion isn't not here cause of what Shiny posted. Much worse has been posted about me and done to me via the internet and I didn't respond with such cliched histrionics. Shiny deserved his punishment and more so frankly. His last post was the height of bad internetz, but it certainly wasn't something so dreadful as it was stupid. Terrible form all in all.

Anyway, what was the point, yeah this place is less interesting without Shiny. And less noisy without Trisagion and Kerdy.

Maybe pasadi will return.

Nonsense. The emails he sent me are proof you don't know what you're talking about.  >:( I suspect you also didn't see the OP that Achronos posted which got him banned. Nobody should be subjected to such a torrent of explicit abuse, and nobody's family should be smeared in such a vile way as did Achronos to TheTrisagion's family.

I was thinking of a list of categories, and then people would submit their votes for which thread/who best fits the category.

Boring. Hoi polloi are what they are for a reason. Once the exceptional are capable of judging one another.

May I count this as 1 point for "Most boring: ZZ"?

Random: I keep pinching a nerve in my lower neck/upper shoulder area. It comes out of nowhere but nearly drops me when it happens- it's so painful. I can't figure out why or what I'm doing to exacerbate it. I thought maybe from hunching over my sewing machine when I quilt, but I haven't done that in about a month. Yesterday it randomly happened when I was running on the treadmill and I nearly fell off. But I don't do anything crazy with my arms when I run- just the natural swinging... So what gives?

I'd take Achronos' real, heartfelt, sincere rants over the "wisdom" of some pseudo-internet guru which passes for wisdom around here

All the more reason to like Achronos. Maybe now there'll be less spam with J Michael and Trisagion sharing stupid cat pictures with each other on every thread.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.

You certainly have no trouble speaking ill of another banned used who isn't even around to respond. Sounds pretty disrespectful to me.

Look up Fr. Ambrose and tattoos here on the forum for a glimpse at the sort of person he is. He's not a pseudo-internet guru of any sort, but a down to earth guy passionate about certain things.

I saw the post which got Achronos banned before it was pulled. Did you? If you did, then, please, tell us why you think Achronos' banning was unjustified.

I certainly did see it; Cyrillic showed me an image of it via Facebook. I'm not talking about whether or not he deserved it; quite frankly, I don't care. What I disapprove of is typing ill things about him on here when he is not around to even defend himself. It's a low-blow and quite frankly something that sets me off. You're a bunch of cowardly snakes who are too afraid to say what you are thinking to his face. At least if I don't like someone on here I say it (and often suffer the green dot as a result), whereas you and a few others wait until he's gone to speak your mind. I don't appreciate the libelious posts against Achronos because jerk or not, he's my friend--along with Jason--and I stick up for my friends.

William's shameful, disgraceful and irreverent performance on the Jesus bench press thread, and in subsequent threads before he chose to leave, showed that my gift was sent to someone who did not deserve it. Pearls before swine. He showed no remorse or regret over what he posted, either on the public forum, or in any PMs he sent to me.

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

And I'm glad he didn't; in fact, I'm the one who told him to stand his ground. Funny that you would claim to have the moral high ground here "pearls before swine" thing when you're the one gossiping about them. You know, I chat with William on a daily basis and he never once gossiped about you. You can't even give him the same liberty.

Again, you have no problem gossiping when the people aren't around. At least I'm man enough to face my opponents to their face (well not exactly, but you know what I mean).

I confronted both Achronos and William on their behavior when they were still part of the forum, yet they continued to behave like self-indulgent brats. Your willful ignorance isn't doing you any favors.

Indeed, both Achronos and William were wrong. Unfortunately, they showed themselves too stubborn in the invincibility of their youth to recognize their offense.

Who made you a mod? William was never warned once btw, which is odd seeing that you always appear to be in trouble or on moderation. In any case, I don't see the benefit talking badly about them when they're gone. Achronos got his penalty but you're still kicking his corpse and William isn't around anymore so why keep picking at him?

You know, I chat with William on a daily basis and he never once gossiped about you.

The only way you would have known about the icon is if you could read my PMs, or if William told you.

Give it up, James. True friends tell the naked truth to their friends, not mollycoddle their crass and offensive behavior.

Actually I found out from a third party then asked William about it.

I have told them the naked truth to their faces; you simply just gossip about them. Not even I gossip and I think we can all agree my standards are pretty low.

Gossip isn't gossip when it's the truth. Something you have great difficulty in facing or accepting.

Well, at least he didn't send someone an icon overseas and then demand it back. That'd be pretty self-indulgent; just sayin'.

William's shameful, disgraceful and irreverent performance on the Jesus bench press thread, and in subsequent threads before he chose to leave, showed that my gift was sent to someone who did not deserve it. Pearls before swine. He showed no remorse or regret over what he posted, either on the public forum, or in any PMs he sent to me.

LOL! William never told me this. You can say a lot about William, but the guy has his principles and sticks to them for better and worse. Not gossiping about others is one of them.

Oh that is rich! Asking for an icon back!

Some one older and wiser than you once gave me a definition of gossip you might like to take up, so that you spare yourself some pointless use of energy:

Before saying something about someone else, ask:

Is it true?
Is it necessary?
Is it kind?

And Trisagion isn't not here cause of what Shiny posted.

Nonsense. The emails he sent me are proof you don't know what you're talking about.  >:( I suspect you also didn't see the OP that Achronos posted which got him banned. Nobody should be subjected to such a torrent of explicit abuse, and nobody's family should be smeared in such a vile way as did Achronos to TheTrisagion's family.

People can claim whatever they want about the reasons for their actions. There is a reason psychologists exist. If people were so good at knowing the causes and conditions for their own actions and how to remedy them, we wouldn't need shrinks, Priests, and the like.

Trisagion has bigger fish to fry than Shiny and for once I am not making a short joke.

Well, actually I am, but I am also making a larger point as well.

This is not to say Shiny didn't deserve what he got, he did as I have said all along. But let's not add to his proper banishment the actions of others, as fortunate as those actions might be. Well adjusted men don't crumple into a ball of self-doubt and announce to a bunch of strangers asking for sympathy cause someone said something bad about their family which 3 people or so saw.

They either exact revenge on the said person, which maybe is Trisagion's long game (in that case props), or they blow it off and move on.

Anyway, the moderators should be thanked for their actions in the speed with which they removed Shiny's content. It is a good example for others here that such behavior will almost no effect and that no one has to live in fear of such action taken against them.

Few boards would have moved with such agility. I believe Cyrillic is to be thanked for the deletion of the material, but perhaps it was another mod. In any case, good show!

I am guessing positive "criticism" of moderator action is OK? As I have trumpted the mods in the past without warning or recourse.

I'm not sure. I haven't come across it any other places, but I certainly won't leave out the possibility. 

As far as I know, the phrase is supposed to illustrate the assasins' world view and philosophy.

Well you have the sentiment all over the place throughout time, Neech put the nearly the exact phrase in his Zarathrustra in his larger critique of nihilism. You have it attributed loosely to Hassan-i Sabbah in some writings I have come across from the late 19th and early 20th century. (You could say it occurs is in a rather strong form in the Brothers Karamazov.)

From Neech and those writings, you have a lot of people confused about what Neech meant using it in some rather insipid "counter culture" literature in the late 60s through the 90s.

I would like to see the quote sourced better, but that is just off the top of my head. Someone had in their profile info here for a while, Jewish Voice maybe, that's when I realized it was associated with the video game you named.

Interesting. Do you think you could post the quote from Zarathustra? I don't have it myself.
