Cool Counter Strike (not what you think)

ok, sorry, CS fans, even though i love the game, this is not it.

i just wondered whether Kitty, or anybody else, can fill me in on the true situation that has developed on the ACOL forums. I know you are all sick and tired of this, so please mail me at: milanstanojevic@yahoo.com

and one more thing. it's crap that ACOL is gone. Sorry site owner, i don't know who you are, and don't have time to check. Anyway, ACOL is ACOL, and it is a pitty that a quarrel, and a complex of low self esteem should ruin it.

anyways, cheers folks, and good luck.

ciao,
milan

ACOL is gone?

Do you mean the amount of posting is low?

Later ... Ted S.

Oh man ... yes you're right, I am indeed sick and tired of it. I will try sum up the whole thing quickly anyway.

I don't know if you still were there but at some time AnnC took over the site from AsianFlu, who apparently didn't have time for it any more (I don't know the exact reasons though). After that there was actually a long time of nothing happening (nothing that's of importance for the current situation at least), also AnnC was gone for quite a while, for about a year I think. We chatted, made fun of SMAC and Poly, organized MP games, etc. ... nothing spectacular. Then day came when AnnC returned. A while after that she moved ACOL to a new server ... ACOL became PlanetACOL. She's paying all the expenses for it out of her own pocket. Anyway ... again nothing. Then, last April (I still remember that because it was first meant as an April Fool's joke) MtG actually became a mod at Poly OT. MtG had started to like Poly better than PlanetACOL anyway, so it was just a matter of time until he moved to Poly permanently. Apparently Ann didn't like that and some of what MtG posted about ACOL and so they had quite a huge argument over some things. I don't know exactly what it was but AnnC accused MtG of lying about the history of ACOL. And that was also the official reason she gave when MtG got permabanned from PlanetACOL. Bullshit move by Ann, bullshit reason. It was quite obvious to a lot of people that MtG got banned because Ann didn't like him and had enough of him. Chagarra left PlanetACOL after that.

Things went on and after a while more and more Poly trolls started posting in Random Chat, with Lancer leading the way. No big deal really, but they got under Ann's skin as it seems. So what did she do? Opened another forum and began to move all old and new 'troll' threads there. HelloKitty, now Ann's premier asskisser, became the forum cleaner. So basically no Poly poster could post in RC any more without being a troll in Ann's eyes. Ok ... a short while after that Ann banned MarkG ... because he had copy pasted a post from PlanetACOL to that incredibly nerdy civ site OT. She banned him for copyright reasons. The problem is ... that post actually was originally from Poly, got copy pasted to ACOL then. So again, the banning was total bullshit and it was apparent that Ann didn't like MarkG too much either. The real reason for the banning.

The third banning came a few days after that IIRC. I wasn't there myself, but I heard the later banned KeggerLord encouraged some posters of another forum to post pictures from rotten.com at ACOL, yet he didn't post pics himself. From what I've heard those pics weren't that many and got edited out quickly. A couple of days after that KeggerLord posted an apology, but excluded Ann from it. Ann banned KeggerLord after that, officially of course for the pics (which he didn't post himself), but everybody knew that it was because of the non-apology.Ever since KeggerLord supported MtG in the earlier conflict Ann and KeggerLord weren't the biggest friends. She denies that, but everybody knows it. It was just another chance for Ann to get rid of somebody she doesn't like. After that, people started leaving. Most of us moved to FFZ, MtG's new 'no rules' forum.

And as you maybe noticed, Kitty did all the things she could to disturb the forum and piss us off. MtG reacted by introducing a new ignore poster feature. Some days after that Kitty posts on ACOL that MtG had called her and told her to leave his forums alone 'or else'. That was IMO lie, I can't prove it but there are some things that make it obvious.

Well, and now we're here.

The End

Yes, great fun.

Every time we criticized Ann for what she did, she said something like 'This is my place, if you don't like what I'm doing you can post somewhere else.' No serious discussion possible with her. SO that's what many ACOLytes did, post somewhere else.

ACOL lost its credibilitillitillity and a lot of posters. Any gay twat (Lancer, NatP) now and then enters and pisses at all ACOLytes. What can you say against it? They're right. Kinda frustrating.

Well, ACOL is ACOL, maybe. But ACOL isn't what ACOL was. The fun has gone.

As chief pedant, with no Red or Qaj here yet, I take it upon myself to pick the holes in Mt's summary.

...

Well, that didn't take long.

The only other thing to mention was the snide remark about lurkers that Ann made, which was patently directed at LadyR, and probably OW as well. I certainly lost my enthusiasm for posting at Planet ACOL after that.

I thought MtG became a Poly mod before we switched servers.

Also, Mt neglected to point out that Ann created multiple Lancer logins for anybody who asked her for one, which only made things worse. That's when I started going off ACOL. Mightytree also forgot that LTEC was banned (officially) for posting messages for MtG while he was banned. Finally, the last sentence of the second paragraph is a sentence fragment .

And you call yourself a pedant.

Ann's special titles for poly posters didn't help matters much either. That happened before the whole MarkG stealth ban thing. Nor her self-righteous trips to Poly to crow about how much better 'her' moderation policy was compared to theirs.

The lurkers comment was in response to my complaint that her policys had lost the site it's two greatest american lurkers. She replied that she didn't care about lurkers, because they didn't add anything to the site. Which kinda did it for quite a few people, because it was Rachel and Tom I was talking about.

Very true. The whole Lancer stuff was so ridiculous. Special titles- that is very unfair.

Yes, yes, yes ...

I wasn't exactly sure about some things I wrote so I guess you're right. I didn't know LTEC was officially banned.

Pedant.

I think (although I am not sure) that the LTEC ban was rescinded but I am not so sure she ever bothered to find out.

I think one of the problems was also the arbitrariness. When Walrus and I posted messages from MarkG and JohnIII posted links to it this was a bannable offence. But nothing happened.

Yes, Ann was just looking for reasons to ban those she didn't like.
