I'm all about free speech, and I'm cool discussing viewpoints other than my own on nearly any subject. But RegalSin has single-handedly begun to ruin this entire forum for me, and probably for some of you. Every thread he touches turns to shit, and every thread he starts devolves from nonsense to animosity, and it's always his fault.

I come to this forum to exchange ideas, to share some laughs and info. I like hearing about Press Start. I've been friends with Syd and Jeebus since I was in 2nd grade. We bust each other's balls on the site. Tebor and Valdy have been on the forums as long as I have and they have been fanatical on seeing it succeed. Nearly everyone on here have been great for this site. We're like a disgruntled mini-group of forum fun. And Regal is ruining it for me.

I like to be the voice of reason here; I think you all know me as pretty mild-mannered and jovial, but I can't help but hope Regal's computer dies and he can't get online ever again. And I don't want to feel that way when I log in. So I'm proposing that Syd boots him once and for all.

If you guys are with me, let me know. If you think I'm way off base, let me know that too. But this guy is fucking with my fun, and I don't like it.

As Site Admin, I am neutral on this issue.

But since the issue has been forced, let's see where it goes.

It's up to you now, find our car and stop the new world order.

Oops, wrong line. I meant to say that you should tell me your thoughts on this issue. The fate of Regal is in your hands.

I kinda enjoy his inane posts, but sometimes he crosses a line. I think he should just be modded a little more carefully. Maybe we could put him on permanent probation or something?

Even though I've just started posting here, I've been coming to this site for a while and been reading the boards since they first opened. I just never registered since I was never a big message board type person, but the whole April Fools thing (which I thought was real) made me register to show support. Anyway, I agree 100% with S. McCracken. I wouldn't care if he never came back. I thought of posting a topic simliar to this, but didn't bother since I am pretty new around here I didn't think any one would pay attention, and thought I might be the only one who thought it, but apparently McCracken thinks the same way. When RegalSin completely changes the E3 thread to what he changed it to, its ridiculously obnoxious, and he does it to basically every thread he posts on.

I don't post here much, but I guess I should voice my opinion anyways.

Well after seeing his other topic that he started in internets, it does seem like he gets off on spamming incoherent drivel on forums and just out-and-out annoying people. This would constitute his banning, at least in my opinion.

But maybe that's a little too harsh....maybe. Personally, if it were my decision, I'd temporarily ban him for a week. If he learns his lesson after that period, great, problem solved. However, if he continues to pull the same bullshit and piss everyone off even after having a little time-out, then I say send him fucking packing permanently.

Sexton, Chrisby,

New, old, regular. Everyone who posts on these forums are all equal... except for Syd, who is more God than man... On these boards were all dirty, rotten commies.

Everyone has an equal voice on this matter.

Have you voiced your vote yet?

Even though I am not *technically* a real person, I think Regal needs to go.

NOTE TO SYD: You are currently in the middle of a psychotic break. You need to try and get at least 6 hours of sleep each night.

Damn it, Haddox, you brought enough pain and misery to the world already by being a parody to a man of dementia!

Actually, I agree with Chrisby. A Temporary ban would be better I think, than if it happens again, have it be forever.

I have to agree with getting rid of this guy. just reading his posts when i was in england kinda made me want to come back less. I know the pains of dealing with an incoherant asshole on forums,and this guy seems to want to get people going and ruin topics, so I say before it gets out of hand,just get rid of him.


I am a worthless piece of crap.

Well, I find him annoying most of the time, but I think banning him might be too extreme. I like Tebor's idea of probation.

Just ignoring him is a good idea too. Personally, I just skim through his posts or skip over them completely.

I'm new here, so weigh my opinion accordingly.

Haddox posted. I love it! Very Happy

Although I'm cool with the probation idea, I think we've all seen that those sorts of things don't seem to stop him. I'm tired of the irrational, incomprehensible, unsupported contrariness that he spills into every conversation he joins. I'm all about differing points of view and good-natured debate, but that's not what he seems to want.

He wants to force his incoherent, flame-war-lighting, pseudo-philosophical bullshit upon us.

Perhaps this just isn't the forum for him.

You forget, Syd is a philosohpy major. And despite his deep-rooted Catholic upbringing, he obviously idolizes Neitschze. Therefore he is not God, for God is dead. Syd is ubermensch.

I'm sorry - I kind of like RegalSin. I would not vote to ban him; the dude offers counterpoint. Too often on forums you wind up with a bunch of like-minded individuals going "Yup.", "I agree", "What he said", etc. Not so with RegalSin... he sticks up for what he thinks, no matter how incoherent or long-winded it is. I admire the strength of his convictions. And come on, there's no way that anybody feels threatened by what he says... so why all this ban talk?

I say boot the bastard. I haven't been here long, but as far as I've ever seen, Regalsin's the only troublesome person on here. And sure, it's all well and good that he has strong opinions and stands up for them, but he also makes no sense 98% of the time and the other two percent he uses to get all huffy and aggressive when people don't understand his blathering.

Same here. (for the most part)

I won't lie tho. Regal (or whatever his name is) isn't doing a damn thing for his case.
I don't like the thought of being anyone banned, but he isnt doing anything for himself.

As a disgraced member of another forum, i feel a smidgen sorry for regal, but not much. I just wanted to let people know that "dog in the fight" as it were.

After talking it over with the moderators, I have decided to give RegalSin three strikes. Should he reach a third strike, his account will be disabled for two weeks. Should he reach a fourth strike after that, he will be banned.

He currently has two strikes:

As spoilsport said, it makes the boards more fun and interesting when people have different viewpoints so that there can be some sort of actual debate. However, there has to be a line somewhere. When you start making racist remarks and defending pedophilia, you're definitely over that line.

I can live with that.

Although I will say (and not in a way that disagrees with your solution, just as a general FYI to the members of the forum) that while yes, I could just ignore Regal, the fact that he manages to post to every thread will at some point ruin everything I read on here.

I'm with Spanky on this. I tried just ignoring Regal, but it meant I had to ignore the forums almost entirely, and it was a wonder I started checking this multiple times a day finally!

When someone who has such negative posts leaves these posts not only in every thread, but as virtually every other post in every thread, then ignoring his posts involves ignoring the one or two posts in between his ones. That and most of the posts by other people involve the total bullshit he said. Three strikes is fine and while I'd like to think he's long since exhausted that, those 2 are definately the two most inexcusable posts.

I'm all for forgiveness and stuff, but this guy's used up his and all of our second chances, IMO. Pretty much everyone else on these forums is calm and cool, but Regal is like some kind of anger-themed time bomb. He seems to absort all criticism (no matter how small) and condense it into a big ball of hate and nonsense. And why hasn't he posted in this thread yet?

The four strikes thing seems to be a relatively fair system. Although I think after one or two strikes (considering how extreme a "Strike" has to be), it is enough.

We'll just have to see though. I personally wouldn't mind that much to see him go, his mis-structed posts and creepy avatar surely wouldn't be missed by me...

I have a strong feeling that the anger-spewing bullshit is purposefully done in the interest of trolling the forums, so now he can sit back, watch us debate and talk about this, and pat himself on the back. Personally, I'm for banning him- mining through his posts to find something clear/relevant that isn't complete horseshit is a challenge that I don't feel like dealing with anymore.


Thou, because I am wroth, be not dismayed, for I shall win the strife, whoever circle round within for the defence. This their insolence is not new, for of old they used it at a less secret gate, which still is found without a bolt. Above it thou didst see the dead inscription; and already on this side of it
descends the steep, passing without escort through the circles,
One such that by him the city shall be opened to us.
