Scott,
Off topic I know but are you guys working on an iPad app in the market that takes you to the matrix site? It's a great way to get people to look at you that otherwise never would. Just a thought.

Thanks for the support rogo. Someone was out to make a big deal of this and brought it to jarheads attention. I know who it was, I don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to work it out. Infact funny enough when Jarhead was here reading it the only other member on this thread was said person. Jarhead was used and wound up by someone who had their own agenda and certainly wasn't looking out for Jarheads welfare. A shame really. I never meant to upset him as what I've said as I stated already isn't slanderous, I certainly wouldn't be bothered if someone thought I wasn't mod material. Though why anyone wants to take that role is beyond me anyway. Maybe it's a power thing or something or gives them a feeling of importance. It's not for me. I don't want to police a forum, certainly wouldn't want to ban someone, some people it's there main contact with others so I'd hate to be in a position to take it away from them unless they where committing a crime or made peoples lives unbearable. Fianlly a forum for me is a place to chew the fat and express myself when I want. If I was a mod then that would change and I'd be there to make sure the forum ran smoothly and everyone was OK and felt safe and comfortable and welcome.

Well I can definitely say that it wasn't me that told Jarhead. You do know people browse forums and read threads on their own, right?

Scott, it wasn't you mate. The person knows who it is. Never ever had a problem with you at all. Two names where at the top of this thread reading it earlier today one was Jarhead the other confirmed my suspicions.

I can't comment about this because it's not my field, but are you talking about an app where you can purchase Matrix/Slitherine games in the same fashion that is done online through our stores?

Well sort of. You download the app then it takes you to the matrix/slitherine site and it tells you what's games are coming up and what games you have for sale. It's a great way to get young kids to start playing wargames. If you hook them at the age of 13,14,15, you just might get a new wargamer for life. Although your not target,Kmart ,shopko or Walgreens they all have apps which are free that tells them what there products are. Example ESPN app. You touch the app and boom you have all the latest news in the sports world, except the news of course would be replaced by wargames.

All those who I trusted and I consider mates knew I was under a different name at Wargamer. After giving them enough hints here looks like they finally realised. It was a proof in point that really I'm sound as all those who have an issue with me got on fine with us under a different name. So obviously I can't be the demon they like to paint me out to be or the lunatic, I expect lots of people use different names because they want to be anonymous on the net if the need arises. Also I just for some reason really liked the Wargamer and still wanted to be part of it. Infact I've contributed more recently than those who have just set out to ban me as they are to busy somehwere else.Like I said I told the select few awhile ago.

I could if I wanted to use tor browser and register again in a moth or so and so on and so on as you can't ban an IP or anything else. However I have decided enough is enough. I made it obvious the last couple of days just to show that I had no issues for 6 months on there. None at all. So I'm hardly a trouble maker or troll.

What makes me laugh is that I've always gone by alias, never myself. No one knows me, they know a made up character called Wodin or what ever.

Seriously I really don't care what anyone thinks. They don't know me at all. I'm actually well like din real life and make a very loyal caring friend who would go out of his way no matter what.

I know I've given them ammo to throw around that I'm mental and this that and the other, but really not bothered. When the type of person they keep on there and think are good mates actually stalk someone and try and get them convicted for piracy with no evidenence just because I had two accounts and they make out I'm mad.

Every few months my IP changes or I can use Tor again if ever I wanted to get back on in the future, though I'd not give any clues at next time, however the place is going way to quite, Grogheads have taken away most of the old crew, so I haven't seen the sort of loyalty I showed by wanting to post and be active even after a ban. So if they really don't want me there so be it. Let them treat the members who have abandoned the place and don't seem to bothered about it either well , and ban those who actually want to contribute in a positive way, which I was doing for 6 months.

If Slaakman can deal with it all so can I.

Just want to say that Dominic Costa was my Great Great Uncle who died in the great war and won the MM. It's also my middle names and I'm proud of it. Also if you search this forum you will see me mention him not long ago and a few years back I actually mention his name. So no I wasn't using some totally made up name. I was using my own name and my great great uncles name.

Dude...
Registering under two or more names without letting the public know is duplicitous. It also hints at a personality schism. It's better to say upfront when registering a second account that it is for a specific reason such as reviewing games or participating in an RPG or such. Don't be creepy.

I can't say upfront because the reason in the first place I went on under Alias was I was being harrassed, ask Sigma, there are plenty of forum posts on there all about it at the time. I did ask Sigma if it was OK. Went on as Somme and someone came along to say who I was. Went on again as someone else, was banned. Felt it was unjust, so went on again using my middle names. Now painted out to have personality issues. Hmmm. Funny how for eight or nine years previously no one noticed my mental problems on there. This all started last October when the Wargamer forum changed and someone was going around putting those stupid icons on everyone of my posts saying I was full of sh1t more or less. Also I don't post as a different personality. I post as me using a avatar. Everyone who is using an Avatar you could say if you want is pretending to be someone different. Also I very much doubt I'm the only one who has registered on a forum using two different Avatars for whatever reason.

Lets say everyone knows me as Wodin (by the way thats not me, it's a made up name,an avatar,it isn't my identity but a made up one). Someone starts a new forum with all those people and I sign up using a different Avatar. Is that wrong? No. You can use whatever name you want. I know people who use different names at different forums here. They don't tell you on the forum that they are so and so from another forum.

Again your saying exactly what I expect from any inner circle of a certain crowd. The evidence to it all is online. Not hard to find. God even in a court of law I'd be able to show a paper trail and everyone would go "Oh right, we see why you did it, fair enough".

I have been told and in certain cases found out of certain people in this community who do do quite underhand and sly things to settle online issues. from threats of violence y organisations (yeah mad I know) to smear campaigns so bad that they even go to other people on the net who don't even post on the particular forum but may have standing in a certain community. That, that is disgusting and deserves to be called to account, yet it doesn't, these people aren't banned or publicly humiliated like they've been put in some sort of Internet Stocks. Using a couple of Avatars on a forum and not causing any problems at all with other members to me is nothing in caparison. Yet it seems it deserves to be announced publicly, followed by a ban, then aload of abuse on the forum you've been banned from where you can no longer even reply. Even though as I said it all stemmed really from Wargamer not being able to protect a long term member from harrassment.

What in the hell are you talking about you wacko? Slow down, take your meds. If i censored anything that you posted at wargamer, and I can't imagine that I did, because I don't censor anything there, it was only your offensive theories on how the holocaust never happened, 9/11 was caused by the US Government and the wargamer staff is in the pocket of Jewish bankers.

I wonder why they let you run free on any forum, twerp.

Here I thought this thread would be entertaining in finding odd quirks in sites and companies. The Something Awful forums charge $10 bucks to register on their forums and sometimes if someone makes a poor thread, a mod will come in with a "Mod Challenge" and challenge the OP to do something or be banned. How's that for some crazy?


I would want my back in my front pocket.

Unlike yourself, Aaron Russo, God rest his soul, wasnt a liar. He was telling the truth about 911. He had credibility whereas you have none . Zero. Nada. Yes, I did state many times that 911 was caused by British, Israeli & US intelligence operatives & you frothed in protest about it as usual. Thats a historical fact whether you like it or not. In fact as evidenced by the fact that you deleted the topic regarding NDAA, I suspect you condone the 911 attack since you subordinate US security to that of the same Globalist cartel who planned & executed it. Then my account was deleted at the command of Boorstein. No collusion there, nope. Duh. And Im not a so-called, "holocaust denier", Im merely a holocaust redefiner. The holocaust began when your beloved control-freak Soddomite mentor published "The Communist Manifesto" in 1848 resulting in 100+ million deaths. Your gangbanger hubris is a twisted malignancy. Change your Satanic ways. And take this snotty Useful Idiot out the door with you;

I was speechless. Just wondering how some people rant and rave about certain themes, but forget to sit down, take a deep breath, ponder on what they might want to say, take a deep breath, think what they should say, write down what they think, reread, maybe edit then submit the post.

I have often wanted to post angry responses, but after thinking and maybe rereading what I had read, often realize it is not worth it.

Not wanting to attack anyone in the forum, but surely someone who watches over a forum should not pour oil into a burning fire or add salt to a wound???

I am confused as usual. Are you referring to SLAAKMAN? Cause he has NO idea what he is saying. He can't help himself, that green skin should be the first signal to you.

Yes, yes it is. He's a moderator that has been consistently attacked and slandered by Slaak (and all his sock puppets) for daring to suggest that Slaak not troll through forums with anti-Semitic comments, or that he should not personally attack other posters for refusing to kowtow to Slaak's line about 9-11 being an inside job. Slaak was finally banned after it was clear that no amount asking Slaak to tone down his out-of-control rhetoric was going to result in a happy conclusion. And although the mods were the ones with the power to ban Slaak, it's not like there were a lot of tears shed for his passing, as a high degree of civility returned to most of the forums for quite some time.

Jarhead was quite polarizing in his pre-moderator days. Once made a moderator, he stayed pretty low profile, and was quite even-handed. But as has been noted elsewhere in this very thread - some people just can't let go of past behavior associated with certain screen names.

It is the height of irony that Jarhead is being indirectly attacked by the same people who feel the need to hide behind sock puppets to distance themselves from their previous poor reputations. Jarhead at least has the cojones to stand up for his past behavior and own it, even if it is not how he would choose to act today. And that's significantly more admirable than hiding behind sock puppets or arguing with oneself through varying screen names.

Rogo - it is unlikely you've ever witnessed Slaak in full flight, and the minor taste above was barely a warm-up for him. There was a lot of bad behavior tolerated at WGer (and much more within the past 6 months than ever should've been). So when someone goes so far overboard that they get the almighty axe of total and permanent banned-ness, you should wonder why, and come to the appropriate conclusion that he was a total detriment to the community, with absolutely nothing positive to offer.

Judge and disparage if you choose. But doing so without a full set of facts may leave you in an awkward position once you understand the history behind the decisions.

I am not defending anyone. But I have read and followed jarheads posts for sometime, I agree with wodin from his earlier posts that's all. I think mr. Jarhead helped to prove that point .

I wondered how long it would be before "bayonetbrant" jumped in here. Wish I'd have had a stopwatch on that one.

We value the peace we have here. As far as I can tell, you and your little group have done all the attacking here. We seldom get called to the carpet, and it's because we have restraint (most of the time) and respect.

So I'll say it if no one else will: STOP IT. Take it somewhere else.

If you've can contribute to the group, fine. You're welcome here. But if all you're gonna do is smear people, just go.

I was speechless. Just wondering how some people rant and rave about certain themes, but forget to sit down, take a deep breath, ponder on what they might want to say, take a deep breath, think what they should say, write down what they think, reread, maybe edit then submit the post.

I have often wanted to post angry responses, but after thinking and maybe rereading what I had read, often realize it is not worth it.

Not wanting to attack anyone in the forum, but surely someone who watches over a forum should not pour oil into a burning fire or add salt to a wound???

I am confused as usual. Are you referring to SLAAKMAN? Cause he has NO idea what he is saying. He can't help himself, that green skin should be the first signal to you.



Steiner, do you really think I would be so mad as to accuse SLAAKMAN? That woulde be suicide.

I just find it inappropriate for members to call other members twerps.
I agree about the right for free speech, but I understand it as the right to convey ones beliefs and convictions. Not to stoop so low as to start a slagging match, slandering etc.

Wodin did point out: I apologise to Jarhead never wanted to upset him, nor to be derogatroy as I said I forgot about a certain person ready to run off and tell him about this thread.

Sorry Jarhead

Normally, this comment would end such a conflict.
I enjoy this forum and it's friendly banter, even if some of the members can't even read or write (Sorry Nate could not resist), why not keep it this way.

Yes, I quiet agree. SLAAKMAN is our problem. We deal with him thus:

Our new visitors can stay home, we like playing with SLAAK and wodin, like this:

It would've registered several days, given that I held fire for a while.

Yep, you're right. Wodin didn't tee off on Jarhead before anyone else rode in to help defend him.

You got it. I'm off to GrogHeads and enjoying it.

Wow. Mighty nice of you to roll out the carpet for someone that used to work with Matrix Games. I greatly appreciate it.

And assume you're making the same offer to those who have been smearing folks, but been doing it here before I showed up?
