Are the people on the forums trying to destroy CA by posting illegal/host-prohibited things?

Apparently Brad might be locked in due to the stupid game show contract. He's removed CA from his own site and is obviously trying to distance himself as much as possible.

EDIT: apparently he does still have a link to the old TGTWG domain on his site, but he has removed all association with them on youtube and twitter.

If he is trying to do what he can, I'll consider that in the spirit of my toxx. Ultimately I wanted Brad to distance from CA, and I admit to having a personal... "stake"? Basically I have once tried to look past a bad friend and try to make everyone happy and I was frustrated seeing Brad make the mistake I made. But if he is going to do everything else that he can to get away, I'm not gonna smugly go "see, he couldn't do it " when a contract can be involved.

This is too close to the speculation game for me, but someone was looking for a contract lawyer in the Springfield area last night, right?

It would be too bad if the one thing those fucks did right was to entrap Brad’s immortal soul for all eternity. Especially (accidentally?) with that wretched game show.

So a certain admin, FactsAreUseless, has decided to demod me. This was out of nowhere, and without any consultation with me, or with any other admin. The only reason I got is that I was being "too professional", and enforcing rules. The only way I can read this is that someone didn't like their probe, and complained to their admin friend. Just my feeling. (FYI: it wasn't anyone in this thread. Y'all are cool and I love you).

This, needless to say, hurts quite a bit. I've been wanting to participate more in the recent discussion, but I'm a bit heartbroken. Being perfectly honest, I don't know if I'll do any more than lurk. On the other hand, I'll sleep on that for the weekend. If I do go away, please be not-assholes to each other.

Any discussion I've had with other mods or admins seems to boil down to "no one but FAU seems to have decided this, so nothing we can do". So if you want any more information about what happened, or reinstatement, that's something you'll need to discuss with the admin of your choice.

Given that RDG basically only has 6 threads of note, and only 2 of them produce mod reports, I'm completely baffled as to how anyone can think too much time is spent on mod reports for a particular thread. It's-- literally just statistics.
I'll say that I noticed after you became a mod, you've started to double post (that is, make a post, and then make another post immediately after before someone else posted or responded), and from what I've gleaned, that's usually frowned upon.

If anyone tries to rescue Brad from his contract, it should preferably involve a ragtag group of hairy, badly dubbed Italian men, preferably using some kind of homemade armored killdozer with like some buzzsaws and a flamethrower. Also it’s really racist and out of focus 20% of the time.

I was under the assumption that it was against the rules or at least poor etiquette on Something Awful to make multiple posts in a row without waiting for someone to respond first. If you realize there's something else you wanted to include in after you post, you just edit the post instead of making another one.

A video about Brad leaving CA, but it's just one of the anniversary movies with new footage shot to show there's now a subplot about Brad trying to escape with the aid of Pierre Kirby.

I may be misremembering the details, but I think it was a mod challenge LK placed where a certain poster had to post ‘baba booey’ once a day for a month or be banned. One day, LK probated them, so they couldn’t meet their deadline. They PM’d ‘baba booey’ to LK as compensation, but LK didn’t accept it and banned them. The admins decided this was unreasonably vindictive, and demodded LK.

How an American "Ninja" Tricked Hollywood, about Frank Dux's claims of being a super ninja and the pop culture product of this, Bloodsport.
