I thought you guys might get a kick out of this.
So, as we all remember, darthwarman88 was a beloved member of our little community here, and on several occasions, he mentioned having been banned from a Total War forum. I recently had to register with a Total War Forum to download a utility to fix a glitchy Steam version of Medieval II, and I decided on a hunch to take a look.
Look who I fucking found
True to his word, the man(child) was banned from this forum, and I was unable to discover why from his posts alone. A quick Google search has revealed to me that our friend is much like the Reapers; we are not the first cycle he has tried to harvest.
This gem of a post from a separate forum from the last one linked shines some light on the situation there.
The reasons listed off for this forum:
"You have always been an annoying rat like scourge on this community, from your lobby spamming in RTW and constant racism and bigotry in the lobbies, to your destroying of the CWC boards. Yes I did not forget that it was you who decided to use your moderator powers to delete the entire CWC forums, because your clan was eliminated in the first round of a tournament hosted by the CWC. You are lucky Tomi is a far more reasonable and honourable man then me, for if it was my forums you deleted you would have became my personal project for at least 5 years.
How the .org ever made the mistake of letting you have any form of power, will always be beyond my ability to understand. You are an immature ignoramus, with bad grammar and probably poor hygiene. I did not know these were qualities the .org staff looked at when appointing assistant moderators.
I don't like you, as far as I can tell nobody likes you. You probably don't even like yourself
So, do not try and be friendly to me, do not try and message me, do not even think about me.
If you are banned (and you are) I'm sure it is for an outstandingly good reason, and how it took them this long I will never understand, if I was in charge of the .org I would ban every IP address within a 200 mile radius of you, just to ensure you could never visit these forums again. "
Boy, does that not at all sound familiar. Keeping in mind this was a second forum, the rabbit hole goes much deeper:
A compelling list of reasons he was banned, including this little gem:
"I do not judge his past behavior - I know nothing of it. Nor do I seek to apologise for it. I merely comment on this: "One time he used an alt account and sent a PM to another member where he called Tosa a mother*****. The other member, no fan of Warman, was not amused and he posted the content in the watchtower in what became one of its most epic threads."
Ok so this guy wasn't a 'fan' of his (warmans) and he (warman) was using a fake account... Why pm someone who doesn't like him? Could this be related to "Tell them I was famed when I was banned"?
In my book if you can't handle being insulted - sometimes fairly and sometimes not - you belong in a real Monastery! It's part of the give and take of everyday interaction that we call 'society'.
Please do not think that a Warman's ban has anything to do with a single PM being sent to anyone. A quick look at his account shows that he accumulated 35 warnings and infractions, many of them major, and most within a year and a half period after his first indefinite ban of a year. He is one of the worst-behaved members in the history of the Org, with infractions ranging from simple obscenity to significant plagiarism (including of a Chapter House Interactive History game) to active attempts to gain access to the account of an Admin. Take my word for it, never has a permanent ban been more justly deserved."
Holy. Shit. He makes a lot of you guys look like saints when it comes to the shit he managed to get away with. What boggles my mind was this was 35 after his first ban was lifted. Props to this Total War community for being so tolerant, but goddamn. What's the saying? It's not you, it's me? Apparently warman missed the memo.
And finally, this last gem from a third fucking Total War forum:
"I have an apology from Warman Mojoman wants him to make for him to come back to this place.
"Hello all. I will keep this short. I am sorry for posting pictures of mutilated penis. I did enjoy the reactions from some of you, but it seems this forum is boring without me and I am bored myself. Besides, it's time I am unban anyhow. So, I am sorry for the penis pics and will only post good pics now.... like of pretty ladies . I will behave now. " "
There are no words.
