I wonder if Hyppo is gonna change her mind and ban me forever? I actually want to go over there and do a few things before I go, and see if it has changed at all.

It hasn't.

The only new post since the last time I checked (about ten hours ago, before going to bed), was by Arny on the Cydonia thread; he warbles on about the pyramids in Mexico and then links to a European Space Agency page with a composite video of the area and text that clearly says the "face" is just a big rock. I have no idea what he thought that proved, if anything.

Addendum:

I was talking to Teg last night and one thing we were wondering about is why some of these decisions aren't being made after consultation among the admins. The "mood" of one admin shouldn't have such far-reaching consequences.

Again, this is why I think that, on large boards, admins should have accounts separate from their usual user accounts. And any moderation, warnings, etc., should include a citation of the appropriate board rules.

None of that is gonna cure Hyppo's weirdness. She wants to make spot decisions on what "the rules" mean, based on how much she likes you. That wont change until she is gone, which she will NEVER do. What the fuck else is there to do in Red Deer? Hang out at Chapters and argue with the government over how they are now responsible for her father and she isn't?

Well, I'm not going to speculate on motivations and all that because I really, honestly, couldn't care less. I just think it's sad that the place seems (at the moment) to be slowing down to the same old low level of activity as before the Diaspora. (At least, that's my perception.)

If Arnold is the only one who's going to be posting there, there's not much reason to go by except to take potshots at him.

Oh well.

Well, I just moved this forum and alt.fan.dune up to the top of my Dune-related bookmarks, replacing 'Keen. This is the deadest I've seen it over there since I was banned from DN.

Whatever.

It's a flop forum. I was banned because Hyppo doesn't like me and to try back up what she was doing she actually lied to me about a complaint. Shame, really, it could have just taken over where Dunenovels left off after the exodus, the same people were posting about the same themes. The main reason it has failed is because of that liar Hyppo. The first thread I saw when I started posting there was one she had hijacked where a couple of guys were mocking the new Dunenovels rules in German accents. She waded in and actually said "that's enough!" before droning on about suffering under the Nazis and announcing that the thread was locked until the two people responsible PMd her. She then later announced that the thread was now open again, as the PMs had been received by her from the naughty members responsible. I hadn't and still haven't seen anything quite like that from a moderator. I'm convinced her stomping around on Arrakeen is the highlight of her day.

She's also on Dunenovels, which is a surprise as I don't remember her contributing anything noteworthy or remarkable. Without the big admin stick she's just another background dullard.

Anyway, that aside, Arrakeen is a flop, I've already wasted more effort on the dump than it deserves.

Now I can go to checking that out every few days. I've pretty much avoided DN now for the last month. I check it every couple of weeks, but never see any thread worth posting in.

This is just all too bad. Hyppo, and Byron too, I guess, can kiss my ass. But I loved those forums in their heydays.

Maybe I should expand the Dune section? Anyone have any suggestions?

I hope this won't be taken the wrong way, but anyway, here goes...

The Herberts are shitting all over Frank's legacy and they banned a bunch of us from their BBS...but a few of you still go there and post.

One admin on Arrakeen goes fairly full-tilt batshit and does some things which (I'm assuming) another admin (like Freak or Crys) could undo and people boycott the forum.

I guess I'm just a little confused by the apparent inconsistency. Or am I missing something? :(

As far as I'm concerned, there are some differences here, Chig. DN was always the family corp's board. Arrakeen was a fan board. One would assume that clampdowns would happen on a corporate owned board and not on a fan board.

Hyppo's reactions were personal and appeared to me, who received the brunt of it, to be motivated by illogical and constantly changing personal feelings. Byron's may have been sudden, but I think you have acknowledged in the past that you were surprised that you got away with what you got away with for as long as you did.

Some people here have problems with the board in general at Arrakeen. If Hyppo is going to be crazy, then they figure why work so hard to figure the fucking software out? I don't necessarily agree with that, but I can sympathize. And I note that Hyppo does not seem to be doing much to fix the problems, even though she does give lip service every time someone bitches.

Arnoldo is there now. He was not active on DN when you were banned. Hyppo protects him and wants him there. Byron doesn't give a shit.

DN happened first. When Hyppo started turning into a flaming bitch, it was the proverbial last nail in the coffin. Reactions are stronger to her because she knows well what these kind of actions do to online community, since it just happened recently. People blame her personally for DN's and her own sins collectively, and even if that is unfair, she knew what she was doing.

Hyppo tried to come over here just to cause trouble. Why would I want to go back to her board after that? Besides, she is petty enough to try to lord it over me no matter what I do. If I ever get back there, I'm going to do a few things to my account, then get out for good, or at least until Hyppo is no longer an admin.

DN was like crack to me. It was the first board I really ever joined, and it was awesome in its heyday. Arrakeen was not that big to me, though I admit it did fill the void very well for some time. It was not easy for me to quit DN, though now I largely have. With what has happened at Arrakeen, I'm not finding it anywhere near as tough, probably because its not anywhere near as much of an addiction.

Passions are still high right now. Wait for them to die down and see where the opinion lay before attempting to come to any firm conclusions. I may very well go back, though that wench drives me so crazy, in a way that Byron NEVER did, even when he overnight became a Preek.

Its also not clear that Hyppo has changed. For all practical purposes, Byron is no longer banning for stupid stuff. Hyppo, according to the few things I have heard, is still in her little "mood." Why would anyone want to go back there as long as she is calling the shots and is "moody?"

Besides, you've said that you would never go back to DN. Cant you guess that I feel the same way about Arrakeen? And CL too, who was actually banned?

As to what the other admins over there can do, Ill let them comment on that if they want to, as I know nothing about how the board is run. But I suspect that as despite as much common sense as those two guys have, Hyppo makes the calls and that is it. If I'm wrong about that, I'm wrong, and no hard feelings at all. Crys and Freak will ALWAYS be welcome here. But Hyppo did it with out telling them, I think, so what does that tell you?

I tell you one final thing, my friend. When you got banned from DN, no matter the reason, I saw red and I wanted to tear that fucking place apart. As far as I was concerned you were a big part of the heart and soul of that place, and are a big part of the reason why I loved going there. It was never the same after you and Phaedrus and the others got the axe, and it never will be again. I tried to leave DN and never go back, but I was weak, man! Its taken this long to stop caring. Do I go there now? Yes. Only to post on non-Dune things, though. Will I eventually visit Arrakeen, just to see what is up? Maybe. But I'm still a little hot under the collar, so give me a little time here to make up my mind, K? :wink:

Besides, the ones who said that they were not going back were either banned, or made their minds up before all this happened.

OK. Thanks for the in-depth explanation from your POV; makes sense.

I guess the way that I was looking at it is, since Arrakeen IS a fan site and Hyppo is NOT the owner, things over there could be turned around, but only if someone with similar clout (ahem) chooses to take action. Or someone complains to Baron?

Ah well, maybe it's just time to cut my losses? :(

There's a whole world of difference. We were on the HLP's own board trashing their products, I'm just surprised Byron let everyone get away with it for so long. When SC and others were banned and it was made clear that other people were on borrowed time, people just fucked off from the site although some started posting again on there, but nowhere near in the volume that people did before the bannings. I only started posting again on Dunenovels as I felt stifled on Arrakeen, what with being nagged by PM and on the forum by that demented hick Hyppo.

My whole experience of Arrakeen was not particulary a fun one and I can't understand why being banned from an official board for taking the piss out of their "star employee" and cash cow Anderson is anything like being banned or suspended for being disliked by a lunatic member of the admin on an unofficial site. Oh, and being lied to in the reason for the ban. At least Byron was honest when he fired SC's arse out of DN.

As for a boycott, I have no idea if that is happening or not. What about the other members of Arrakeen who aren't on here, why aren't they posting? (That was a rhetorical question, I actually couldn't care less if the site thrives or dies, I just don't like being lied to).

I seem to remember Baron showing up around the end of the year on the threads discussing the boardware over there. The main reason Hyppo gives for not moving the board or basically doing anything else to solve the real problems is that it's Baron's board and his decision, blah blah blah.

I don't know if there's really a boycott going on, but it's deader than I've seen it. Nebiros showed up and posted another of his silly moralistic anti-BG things, asking the opinion of the female members of the board.

I relayed a message from ChiggerBint that he ought to spend less time worrying about other people's sex and go get fucked more himself.

Oh well, I've new forums to play with here tomorrow, so who cares! :D

I'm about tired of the place and nearly had my own "blaze of glory" moment last week and I think Crys would have been right behind me.
No search tool makes the place practically worthless and the color makes me naseaus, not to mention the drama. It has some sentimental value for me because it was where all the refugees from Dreamers of Dune went when that place went tit's up so I'll try to push for some changes and see if things there get better.

BTW, you're correct. I didn't know about all of the recent happenings until after the fact.

You said it, brother :wink:

Everyone is right, something has to change over there or the board will die, but it isn't our board, and Freak and I have our hands tied as far as that is concerned.

But I think the wheels are in motion.

I noticed he posted something in the book thread; he reading some of that end-of-the-world "Christian" tripe.

I don't know which bothered me more, that or the suggestion that people with vaginas are less likely to start wars. Hmmm, flip a coin.

And, like, who else thinks Nebby is in need of, like, a serious shtooping? I don't get it, his "girl" looks kinda hot in their MySpace pic. :lol:

Whaddaya think?


He probably wouldn't want to plunge into the delta of venus, and as for her giving him head, I can't imagine that would happen. He probably thinks that would be "spilling his seed on the ground", and a definite no-no.

I bet they laugh about the time when they were really daring and had sex in broad daylight with the curtains closed one time, or the time they shagged in their car whilst it was still in the garage.

As for that monkey story, Nebby's dad was bitten by an orangutan just before Christmas. :lol:

I completely agree with your "spilling the seed" analysis. I'll bet that he takes out his horrible guilt for masturbation out on his wife and thinks she's even naughtier than he is. He must have a certain amount of comtempt for her. He probably thinks that he saved her from a life of sin somehow.

And Chanilover, there is no fucking way they've ever done it outside of a dark bedroom.

I asked him at Arrakeen if he believed in birth control, don't know if he answered but I can guess.

When we were on DN he went by the handle William Smitts. Hes a morally uptight rube who posts on DN and Arrakeen. He writes probably the second worst fanfic, after suicide-boy Seru King, and has a serious stick up his ass about the BG. He was fun for a time, but now hes pretty boring. Although he seems to hate SC now, and watching him get his panties in a wad over what SC says can give a few moments of entertainement.

Oh, I remember that guy! He was on Arrakeen talking all this shit about the Bene Gesserit. Yeah, he did have something up his ass. He was "trying" to present his arguments against the BG as some high moral stance and all that resulted was giving everyone the impression he was a male chauvinist. I can remember all kinds of crap he posted in that thread on Arrakeen and as I was reading I'd be shaking my head, saying to myself; "No, that's wrong. Nope, that's bollocks. Where the hell did he get that from? No, that's more BS. Ah, to hell with it, I'm done reading this tripe."

That creep is married? Gawd, where the hell did he find a woman that would tolerate his sickening misogyny? :shock:

Straight women have much lower standards than gay guys. When it comes to settling down with your partner, women will put up with all sorts of shit. Gay guys have a shopping list of do's and don'ts as long as your arm. :lol:

Back to topic,

Ugh, I just checked and I have access. But what a shitty site it feels like now. I did my changes, and thought for a moment about sending Hymaintenance a PM that said "Wow, you really did a great job fucking this place up," but she isn't worth the time.

Well, Hyppo seems determined to let Arnoldo and Byron stay around, and I'm not much interested in sharing space with either, so....

Looks like I'll be spending more time here or hassling Xians over on the Amazon forums. :D

Cheers, wink wink.

I guess I'm going to take my "blinders" off and go see what's up at Arrakeen. (Didn't wake the computer last night after I got home, and I'm just hooking up the coffee IV, so I haven't been back since the "chain" comment to Hyppo yesterday evening. No doubt I'll have a PM waiting for me. Her and her PMS...er, I mean, PMs.)

Addendum:

Well, that wasn't worth the effort.

Surprisingly, no PMs!

Not that anyone is probably particularly interested or anything, but "troll" is evidently a bad word on Arrakeen (too?) now.

If you type "troll", it gets replaced with "Irwin".

I admit, I wasn't at Arrakeen long enough to get myself worked up over it's imminent demise, but I was really disappointed with the total denial that there was a problem. It didn't take any amount of intelligence to figure out the forum was in trouble. Almost from the day I joined I could tell the forum needed help.

But few seemed to acknowledge these problems and I got the general impression most were writing off complaints as nonsense, particularly Hyppo. She seemed totally oblivious to everything and when I'd post concerns, she'd give the internet equivalent of a blank stare. She'd ask I fully explain my concerns, as if she had no clue or as though my original posts were somehow indecipherable. Then I'd spend an hour writing a 1,500 word essay at a grade 5 level to help explain only for the whole post to be ignored.

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. By the time arnoldo had been invited and/or permitted to join, the writing was on the wall. A pity for certain, the forum could have been fun.

A question for Freak & Crys: Is she running any of this stuff past you guys or anyone or just doing it all on her own?

Have you asked her about any of it? (Putting troll on the "bad word" list was completely uncalled for IMO.)

If not, are you hesitant to cross her out of concern that she might threaten to quit, leaving more admin shtuff for others to do?

Just wondering.

(Also, can one of you open the board back up to the public. If you google Arrakeen now, the result reads:

Log In
Arrakeen->Log In. **Breaking News**. The following errors were found:. The board administrator requires all members to log in ...

You know that's going to discourage visitors. The Herbert witchhunts, the original reason for closing access, are seemingly over. The only reason for keeping the board closed now is to keep out people who never or no longer have accounts (ChaniL)...or who were temporarily banned, like Omph.)

Not recently since I told her what I thought.

I've been in Ft. Myers for the past few days, this is all news to me.

If not, are you hesitant to cross her out of concern that she might threaten to quit, leaving more admin shtuff for others to do?


When she does ask I honelstly tell her what I think. I'm not worried about it anymore really. She and arnoldo can have it. I can figure out how to approve new members and stuff like that, what the place needs is a search feature and a new skin that isn't baby shit brown. She keeps saying that she's working on it but...

Just wondering.

I'm sure I could figure it out. But why bother. I say let it die. I'll get back to this later, I just got back in town and have to do a little work.

Let Arrakeen die Freak??? Are you actually that fed up? I guess I'm just surprised because you have been somewhat neutral about it all (although, I'm certain you have had strong opinions in PMs and the like).

Is there any reason why we aren't summarizing all of our complaints and sending it in an email to Baron? Asking him to remove her as admin (or downgrade her or something) seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to attempt, and he is the site owner, correct?

Believe me, there is discussion between the admins there. It's gotten to where I dread going there in fear of seeing who called who what name or some other such nonsense.

I was going to email him just to make sure he's aware of what's going on but if y'all would like to compile a list of grievances I'll try to make sure he gets it. That would save me some time.

I have enough drama in my life, I don't need that crap. I've been busy with work and family lately and not been able to put much time into Arrakeen. But things won't always be that way.

Well, she's deleted several of my comments, calling them "spam", and sent me one of her PMS. I considered emailing Baron when I was on my rampage last night, but figured if he's too busy to be active, he's probably not terribly concerned, so why bother him.

I'm sure there's a lot there that's interesting that I haven't come across yet (but good luck finding it!), but if participating there means having to deal with Her Highness The Regent, I think I'll pass from now on.

I don't know if she doesn't realize or doesn't give a fuck.

A few complaints I have include:
Making the word "troll" spam is just ridiculous.
Locking down threads because she didn't like the discussion is out-of-line as well IMHO.
Telling people to be nice and then running around and posting "snarky" (I hate that fucking word BTW) comments--IOW, the "are you wearing the admin hate or not" complaint.
Telling people not to post anything about 'Keen elsewhere but railing on dunenovels is a huge double standard.
Banning chanilover and Omphalos (while letting that pathetic little troll arnie continue).
Deleting posts.
Deleting the banner that Omphalos had the 36,000 post cuz she was angry that day.


Those are just a few of the complaints I have.....

After she called Nebiros' and my comments "spam" last night, I got pissed and replied, so she deleted my two comments and hers between them.

I forgot to thank you, Freak, for responding to my questions earlier; sorry. Re this, though:

For the record, I think Freak and I are squarely on the same side. I can't stand Hyp anymore. Freak and I have had a few conversations about her going back at least a year.

In my own case, about 8 months ago I requested to be demoted to a mod position(or regular member) so I didn't have to deal with her crap anymore, but I was talked out of it. I just see her as the senior Admin, but that doesn't mean I agree with her. I've voiced my concerns with her but nothing seems to sink into her thick head. I know who she is in RL, and I think she has nothing better to do.

I've sent emails to Baron without any response, so he's either given up, never checks his emails, or he's dead, who knows? The only other options are to take the board by force, or ask Hyp to step down. I just haven't made a decision yet, if I even want to. I'm not to the point of letting it die, but I'm close.

:lol: I'm convinced the deranged old bat is mentally unstable.

Add this to the smilies at that dump -

Image

If you're compiling a shitlist, you can add -

- refusing to acknowledge the difference between her opinion and fact
- goading me into arguing with her and switching off my account after I said I wasn't interested in her site. It's probably classed as the online version of constructive dismissal
- lying to me about a complaint she claimed to have received which she didn't
- being an arsehole
- refusing to discuss her deletion of a link to another site which she deemed was inappropriate which was a UK TV station. It would be the equivalent of deleting a link to CBS because of "inappropriate content"
- refusing to apologise for a stupid gay comment she made

She should be banned, just like she was banned from here. She thrives on her online dramatics, though. I think the most humane thing would be to allow her to shrivel away in her dead forum, along with her pet IRWIN Arnoloco.

She attempted to ban trolling on the boards by actually banning the word "troll"? That has to be the most naive thing I've ever heard an "adult" do. SHe might as well have put up a banner at the top of the website saying "Please do not troll the boards" for all the good that rule will do.

Uh-oh...mail just came in and I've got a PM on 'Keen from you-know-who, entitled "DYOR".

Obviously something about my response to her question about US draft candidates.

(I mean, like, google once in a while for fook's sake.)

Seriously, I took it as an attempt to engage The Irwin in a public exchange-of-info dialogue, so later she can say (like Byron), "Ooh, but look how helpful he is!"

Anyway, I'm off now to see what's up over there. Wish me luck! :P

I take it she hasn't been to Hoary Tales or peeked here yet.

Since she's also on Hoary Tales, it would be REALLY funny if she decides to strike back at Bijaz...and you after you repost your oevre there.

Who is even on that website to bully and abuse? arnoldo? Who cares if he's abused and bullied? He's a troll that inflicts the same upon everyone else via different methods. I guess window dressing counts for everything when the site admin is a brainless bint.

Arnoldo is her pet project now, it seems. She wants to reform him.

He's really trying harder now to fit in, yet all we do is greet his every effort with abuse and insults.

I came up with a list of four people that I have devoted special attention to: Byron, Arnoldo, Nebiros, and Martian Bob. I told her that none of them are at Arrakeen because they wish the site well, especially the first two.

The only other person I can remember being less than pleasant to was ARCH back a few months ago when she was whining on and on about her language and culture being endangered. I realize the people there have been through hell and back, but her post read, to me, like she was thinking of giving up on everything. To be blunt about it, she reminded me of SeruK anus when he was doing his suicide routine. So I kinda told her to lay down and die or do something to preserve what she thought was being lost. (I think I suggested making babies.) That got a PM from her Highness as well.

At this point, I'm not particularly bothered either way. I haven't put in as much time over on Arrakeen as I did on DN. Getting kicked off a sinking ship could actually be viewed as a kindness almost.

But you gotta love her new avatar, no? To die for.

And the body count just keeps rising. If there was any doubt before that Hyppo was fucked up (which there wasn't) firing her staff has now etched her stupidity in stone.

The way I see it, it's win-win for you. The fact that she opened your personal messages merely confirms her own mental problems.

I just checked the members list over there, and she's already demoted you. Didn't waste any time, did she?

I assume there was no discussion of this decision, either.

She didn't take too kindly to the email I sent Byron. But I did say in my email that I would be leaving if something wasn't done about her. so I guess I asked for it.

She gave me the option of a mod spot, and I told her to shove it.

Here's her latest:

Re:Out of control admins, Jan 27 2008, 01:53 PM

Anyway, some time I'll tell you about a forum where the admin is so paranoid that he won't even let the members use the PM system or post links to offboard sites

I'd much rather hear about an admin who opens up PMs and mail addressed to others.

Is it true? What possible justification could there be for an act like that?

And finally, yes, I do consult the other Staff regarding punishments.

Really? Did you consult with Baron or anyone else on demoting Crysknife? What was the reason for the demotion?

Crysknife himself said he no longer wanted to be an admin. I have not seen anybody else's PMs but those I wrote, those written to me, or those forwarded to me.

As for the rest... I expected Crysknife wouldn't be able to keep from telling you. But when Staff members make threats to hijack the board away from other Staff (specifically the Staff member who actually does most of the work), that justifies taking steps to know what is going on. And Baron has been informed -- by me.

Don't get so high-horse, SandChigger. I am aware of everything that's publicly readable at Omphalos' forum and I have seen Bijaz' garbage at your 'hoary tales' blog. I know about the talk of 'can't Crysknife and Freakzilla just take the board away from me, or talk Baron into kicking me out...' The support forums are full of stories similar to this, where some members have turned against other members, the Staff get involved, and next thing you know, the board is trashed. Well, I have no intention of allowing that to happen here. You have your places where you can do what you want, insult and attack people, post all kinds of profanity and gutter filth. Why do you feel the need to turn Arrakeen into that kind of place as well?


So, she's obviously denying having opened your mail, Crys. Have you heard anything at all from Baron? Could he have forwarded it to her?

Anyway, Hyppo, I have no idea why you think I want to trash Arrakeen. But by all means return it to the peaceful admin paradise it used to be, with 13athroom posting fascinating pics of aquarium worms and ARCH windging about how she hates English and the American influence, blah blah blah. And especially have fun with Byron and crazy-ass Bob (if he ever finds the balls to show up again). And good luck with your pet project of reforming "The Irwin".

I've cleaned out my PM boxes, so you can delete my account anytime. Knock yourself out.

So, she's obviously denying having opened your mail, Crys. Have you heard anything at all from Baron? Could he have forwarded it to her?


Yeah, she only told me AFTER I mentioned that she should tell Baron to kiss my ass for handing out private emails(something Hyp has gotten mad at when others do it to her). I told her I would tell Baron that personaly. She then told me she opened the email on her own. I told her that I hope she respects other people in the future.

:lol:

When is Hyp ever wrong?

BTW Hyp, you can do all the work you want on a board, but if you're a total tyrant, none of that work matters. You jump on everything! It amazes me that you have enough time in the day to reply to so many mundane and petty offenses.

Were you smacked in the hands with yard sticks as a kid if your poems didn't rhyme?

Jeez...

The crazy bitch has temporarily banned me again, until February 25th. Who the fuck does she think she is kidding? The ONLY reason I went back was to fling muck. And the last time I went, the following thread was taken down, I suspect before Hymaintenance could see it. Well....let's just let it serve as an:

OPEN LETTER TO ARRAKEEN:

Dear Crazy woman:

Well, you have finally managed to ostracize almost everyone who supported you at all. I admit that I wanted to rock you boat and watch you fall in to an enormous puddle of poo and drown in it. But I also tried to restrain myself out of respect for others who had to put up with your crap. Now that you seem to violate the trusts of those who really have done nothing at all to you, I really care not a whit. So, you and I traded messages a bit a few days ago. Here is the last post I put up. I suspect you never saw it. Please, please, please, ban me you crazy cunt. If you don't, I will be back on the 25th, and you will not like me being there.

Topic: This Place Sure is Hoppin'!

Congratulations, Hyppo. You single-handedly managed to save this place from people like me. Just as an aside, are you enjoying the conversation now?

BTW, I reported a thread a few weeks ago, but never heard back about what was to be done with the violator. Any news on that?

Hello?

Hello?

Anybody here?

Guess not!


What, this place isn't "hoppin'" enough for you because we haven't yet reached the next 1000-post milestone?

Then by all means, I shall inject some hopping.

Image

(OK, OK! I put that one in! Don't you just love it?)

I enjoy conversations that I find interesting and that don't require moderating due to spam and flaming.

It's not usual custom to report back on decisions taken about reported threads. However, if you're still upset about it, feel free to report it again.

No. Its not hopping because you have chased away everyone. Is that still not obvious even to you?

BTW. There you go, crazy cat lady, promising to do something about threads that get reported, then changing your mind when the wind blows a different direction.

Can you answer me a question honestly? All kidding and ribbing and jibes aside, I really would like a direct answer. Yes or no, are you proud that you have killed this website?

And if you are so inclined, do you enjoy the fact that not even the other admins defend you? That you and arnoldo are on your own here?

Because I cant imagine that there is too much to do up in Red Deer in the winter. Besides, of course, argue with the Canadian government about how they are now responsible for your dear old dad, and you no longer are. You must be a strong person to have that argument with the mighty government. Anyway, I can only imagine that you are trying to make this place as desolate and bleak as your own physical surroundings. Or perhaps just like how you really feel inside, as a person and all?

Anyway, good luck. Ive noticed in the past that it really takes quite a bit of concentrated effort to really kill an interesting web site. Congratulations on your efforts being realized. Ill check in from time to time to see how the death throes are going. Hey, maybe I will come join some of your other forums? Dont you have ones for unicorns and those little "Irwins" with a shock of pink hair that go on the ends of pencils? Watch for me!

So she lied to Chig, then admitted it to you? What a commendable way of handling it. Well....I guess that we already knew that she was a liar after she said that people had been complaining about CL's sig.

I told you all along that she was lurking on here, because if one thing is clear, she has no life whatsoever.

Still, the avatar is a glorious piece of kitsch. Is that how she sees herself in her deranged mind? Fancy alienating the site's most active and Dune-savvy members, because they didn't play the way she wants to.

Retarded fucking hick. You're bound to be reading this, I wrote some fanfic called The Box which is here in the Book Reviews or Fiction Link section - could you check it for spelling and grammar mistakes, please? As for describing the piece on SC's blog as 'gutter', I think 'gutter' is probably a more accurate description of your morals. Liar.

So now Arrakeen is to be only filled with people who meet your approval and who share your interests and approach to discussions. I.E, no one. A bit like real life. Who the fuck is ARCH anyway?

You may see yourself as a fairy princess with glittering stars, but I think the following picture is probably closer to the truth -

Just to be accurate, I think I misread this (the bold part) earlier:

As for the rest... I expected Crysknife wouldn't be able to keep from telling you. But when Staff members make threats to hijack the board away from other Staff (specifically the Staff member who actually does most of the work), that justifies taking steps to know what is going on. And Baron has been informed -- by me.

So she was admitting that she had read the mail and reported it to Baron herself.

Still, making noises about something on another site (venting, male thang) and actually trying to stage a coup are two different things, if you ask me.

When you think about it, she has taken punitive action against Crys (and in a way, Omph) for something said on another site.

HOW VERY BYRON OF HER. How very hypocritical, after all that righteous indignation (just posturing, after all?) back in August over the DN rules and banning people over things they post on other sites. I guess things are different when it's your own prerogatives that are endangered, huh.

She has turned up at Worm's SF Haven again. No doubt to present herself as a target to make me look like a tool when I attack her.

Except for this little blurb of hers that you posted earlier, where she denies it:

:lol: She fucking thrives on the drama, sad old sow. I liked the bit where she dramatically announced that she is aware of what is being discussed here, like she's caught us out. Dumb bitch, I posted all your arsey PMs BECAUSE I knew you lurk here. Fucking hell, she is even more thick than I thought.

And what's all this shit about a coup at Arrakeen? It's not her site, she's just admin like Freakzilla and formerly, Crysknife. This sorry little episode on that festering TUMOUR of a site is like a company where two managers feel another manager is having a destructive effect on the business and try to report it to their superiors, but the destructive HICK manager intercepts and hijacks their attempt to have her removed. For all her preaching at other people for their "sickening" and "disgusting" words and behaviour, this cunt has the morals of an alley cat. Lying toady, crawling to her boss at Arrakeen. What a snivelling arselicker.

Well.. so far she isn't causing any trouble there. I have no idea if she has private conversations with Worm though. I think he'd probably choose to stay out of any problems with other boards. We didn't even want to get involved with the DN problems.

On a side note.. if you don't feel like your emails from Arrakeen are getting through to Baron because of Hyp's interference you can use the email feature through Haven :wink: KillerMouse.. I guarantee your communications won't be tampered with or read by anyone but yourself and the person you send it to.

What? She was a member here for crying out loud. She even showed up and was supposed to interact normally, that is until she got herself banned. When she arrived, no one here did a 180 under some false pretense. No one changed their opinions just because she showed her face. Ergo, no member here was the least bit guilty about what they had said of her, because (surprise, surprise) it was all true. And up until she was banned, everyone here appeared willing to accommodate her, myself included.

What a total head case. It's rare to encounter someone so completely removed from common sense. She is actually under the delusion some organized uprising exists and that Arrakeen is being attacked by a terrorist insurgency of former DN alumni.

Well, I can't speak for anyone else, but I can speak for myself; get a fucking clue Hyppo. I left because your website was dead, it was organized like a junk drawer and your heavy-handed moderation polices sucked.

No other reason
That's it
Game over
End of line

Grow the fuck up. :roll:

Well.. I think it's kinda weird that she suddenly showed up at Haven, and I'll be keeping an eye on her. I recommend just ignoring her, because if any of you start shit with her you'll be seen as the bad guy for bringing up drama from another site. If she's ignored she'll go away.

I sent a note to Worm basically letting him know what is up, and telling him I would just leave it alone there.

I really think you guys could make the best Dune website.. out of all the Dune fanatics online you all have the best senses of humor and the most knowledge about the books. I've lurked at several of the existing forums and none of them are that great. I wonder what it is about Dune that attracts the fruitcakes? I don't know shit about the technical side of running a site, so I can be pretty forgiving of crappy software, but I hate goderators. Anyway I hope you guys carry on the spirit of Arrakeen somewhere.

In the meantime I think everyone who still isn't banned should use this picture as an avatar, :P

Just peeked in and she's making mouthnoises about changing the skin.

Basically the same ole song and dance as for the last year or more, no?

Fuck the skin and smileys. Get the board moved to a software installation that WORKS first and then worry about the layout and all that stuff.

She's just putting icing on a shitcake.

I have no intention of joining more forums Mandy. My post was mostly to communicate the point to a known lurker.

As for Arrakeen, I've left. With the exception of responding to Ompf's private message, I haven't been back there since my final post sometime in November I believe it was. I will not be going back and I encourage others who have had enough to do the same. Trust me, you'll feel better leaving that moron and her website in the gutter she has dug for it.

Pardon? After all that's happened, I hardly think moving the shitfest site to new software is the answer to any of the problems.

Can I just ask, why do you guys bother going back? Do you honestly think you're missing anything? After being banned and reading this thread, all I seem to be missing are the ramblings of Irwin and the demented rantings of The Hick. The forum is a flop, and you're all just prolonging the misery. As Gameplayer says, just leave the dumb twat to fester in the mess she's made of that dead failure of a forum. Going back just to expose yourself to that pair of cunts surely can't be worth it.

I'm going to continue lurking and occasionally posting at Arrakeen for a couple of simple reasons.

I mean, you never know, something interesting might happen. And I need somewhere to go for a couple more minutes a day before I start clicking the StumbleUpon icon in boredom.

I'd have to agree with chanilover. In fact, it's all a little concerning, if you ask me. I'm getting the impression the Almost Undeleted is more a bitch club than a real forum. We, myself included, are spending far too much time discussing Arrakeen. I mean, how many of us are still frequenting Dunenovels and Arrakeen? Yes, you don't have to remind me I don't frequent either website, but I'm just trying to make a point using "we" to avoid being too pointed (punny).

We all "leave" Dunenovels to complain about it on Arrakeen

We all "leave" Arrakeen to complain about it on Almost Undeleted

Anyone else sensing a pattern here? Are we going to actually treat this place like a real forum, or is this just a clubhouse to discuss the "DN/Arrakeen/Dune fandom" drama amongst cohorts? I just got through telling our favorite lurker to grow the fuck up. Maybe I should be taking my own advice.

I don't have any reason to go over there. I joined in the first place because lurking at DN wasn't fun any more after some of my favorite posters were banned.. couldn't just lurk at Arrakeen because it's blocked unless you join. Now that all my favorite DN posters post here I can forget about it.

I'm sure all this will pass.. everyone just has a lot of bullshit to get off their chests. Besides a little internet drama is fun.

Bloody hell, another admin is trying to destroy a good dune forum again. What is it with people like Hymaintenance and Byron? It must be a power complex and they can't stand the thought of losing any of it. Yeah, yeah, I know you are reading this Hyppo, and I've complained publicly about your nazi, heavy-handed moderating. 'Keen is NOT your forum, contrary to your belief. If you trick Baron into siding with you, more power to you, but the forum will just dwindle away into obscurity. Why not step down and just enjoy being a member for awhile and turn over your duties to Freak and Crys? Why don't you post a poll or ask for people to to PM you if they want you to step down and we let the masses decide?

I for one would gladly migrate to a Freakzilla or Crysknife started forum. If you guys want me there, don't hesitate to PM or email or post a link here and I will jump ship immediately......

See this is what I'm talking about. I thought this place was supposed to be our Dune forum alternative.

I think it is 'player (hee hee, I shortened your name again :P ), but this is a "members only" kind of club. I enjoy this, and I'm glad we have a place like that. But I guess a certain Tleilaxu part of me also enjoys arguments and debates with preeks, and setting straight newbies who think they know-it-all and are usually dead wrong. I get a certain pleasure out of educating people on the finer points of Dune; and, quite frankly, trashing KJA and debating with his sycophants. I mean, hell, I agree with just about everything Freak and Crys say--where's the pleasure in that :D

I could set up a user group where all the newbies get funnelled to join the fray, but only those 20 or so of us who are here now have access to these parts of the forums.

I think I would have to change the name of the fourm again too, so people who stumble across it in a google result know what it is.

I really like the idea of having it here, but at the same time, there is a big chance of this place changing in character if I open it up for just any old scallywag to join. I personally LOVE this place the way it is now, so if this is gonna happen, Id want to think of some way to protect this.

Of course, if we set up a new forum for FH and Dune, then I can keep this one locked down for the OH and we can discuss all the weird little preeks here. :twisted:

Also, there is a certain pride in ownership, as they say. Maybe if a bunch of us are gonna band together to get this done, we should set up a new forum so that not just I own it. Something to think about.

I got the impression that this was more of a general sci-fi forum or I wouldn't even have thought about starting my own, much less mentioning it here.

I too like it the way it is here now, it's got a "invitation only" feel and I'd hate to lose that.

I was kicking around the name "Jacurutu".

I guess I understand. Perhaps it's just me who needs to adjust.

I don't usually hang around for all the bad stuff anymore. I've been doing the message board thing since I first got on the internet in the late 90s. I've already been through the great dramas and board armageddons, the bannings and trolls and the facist moderator regimes. I guess I've just been there and done that and really just want a place to post about random shit. The drama gets boring when it's the 100th message board that you've been through.

Well, if you guys start up a new board, definitely don't be shy about it. I'll join up and help get conversation going, if I'm still around.

All these ideas sound great. I'm with B on this one. It is rather nice to debate against the other side so I think there should be an open Dune forum for all people to join, be it here or another forum.

I also like the idea of a closed off area to discuss the little Preeks :twisted: .

I'm also tired of board jumping and would like to find a place like the Dreamers of Dune board used to be, and I'll help anyway I can.

I really don't think the internet needs yet another Dune forum, it's already stretched too thin. What is needed is a Dune forum which treats its members like adults, rather than naughty little children.

I realy think this place should be it. Open it up but, like Omfartlos said, restrict access to certain parts of it to the invitation-only crew, with the riff-raff only having access to the rest of the forum. The name really should be Jacurutu. I'm sure plenty of Dune fans look that name up on Google to work out what it means. Arrakeen has been killed off by the Hick, this place is perfect to take over. Fuck it, why don't you guys just copy some of the threads from Arrakeen and move them here once you've set up the riff-raff section to get things going. You already have the most active and knowledgeable Dune posters here, and me.

I'm waaaaay ahead of you on that last one CL. I'll be happy to copy some of the old, interesting threads over to whatever new forum we establish.

Sounds like we have a good start on a plan. If we do it here, I really like the idea of the select usergroups with different permissions. Keep sections as selective members only, and then others that are open and free for discussion.

Jacurutu sounds like a great name too! And it should be substantially less censored than the "other" forums.

I would be interested in being an admin or moderator also. I've never done it, but I'm certain I could get up to speed pretty quickly.

Go for it. I posted a reply on the Jacurutu thread before reading this one. Count me in, whether you do it here or on a new domain/elsewhere. (And by "count" you can assume the obviou$. ;) )

Freak wants to do his own forum, and I completely understand the rush and excitement from setting one up. I am a little worried that this place will die down a little bit once Freak really gets going, though. But I can understand him wanting something all his own that he alone owns. Plus, he really is the guy to do it. And I cannot imagine a stabler person to be in charge.

Knowledge + stability = longevity, which is the one thing that all Dune forums to date have completely lacked.

OK, Internet drama junkies, here's your latest fix, and my swansong on 'Keen:

(Snip a second comment by me bitching about her concentrating on the skins when there are far more serious problems with the boardware. She posted the above while I was writing it.)

OH, GIVE ME A f**king BREAK.

You deleted his comment, which suggested you be removed as admin.

At least have the integrity to admit it.

So much for free and open discussion on Arrakeen.

Please, delete my account. I'm through with this bulls**t site.

:oops: Thanks for the vote of confidence!

But do we really do that much Dune discussion here apart from related internet drama? We could encourage the non-Dune discussion to go here somehow. I really don't want to cause this place to die down. I think this would still be a great club house for the OHs and friends.

I just want a dedicated Dune forum where you aren't censored beyond reason, plus I've always wanted to do one myself to enhance my personal Dune knowledge.

I know. Im just thinking out loud. I will be a part of both for sure. And Im sure this one wont dry up and go away. Im just voicing something I dont want to happen, but Im sure it wont.

You know though, Ive played with the idea of putting up more Dune content for two months now, and did not do it because 1) I wanted somehting more general; and 2) I was sure someone else was going to do it, cause Keen and DN just were not cutting the mustard. I kind of expected this, and I think its a great idea.

What the fuck is up with her? Why doesn't she just ban us all and be done with it? Do you think that she really believes that we will all come back when this blows over and be good little line-toe'rs? That cant be it, so why am I still not banned, after everything Ive done to get banned?

Would that be an Armored Arnoldo, you think? ;)

That's right, that had slipped my mind.

Well...I've received an email telling me I have a PM from The Regent at 'Keen.

Do I really want to go back just to read it? :roll:

(Did she leave my comment about devoting her precious time to moving the site rather than lipsticking the pig? [Not how I phrased it, of course.])

Why do you people want yet another Dune forum when you've already got one here? I can't be arsed checking out two or three Dune sites when it can all be here under one roof. Just build on this site, and have different forums for different sci fi stuff, one for Dune and other for whatever other geeky shit people are into.

Anyway, this online drama is good for a cheap laugh. Do you think all the emotional rush the Hick feels when she's banning and suspending people is the closest she's got to an orgasm in the last decade?

Some people are so easy to provoke. ;)

The Regent has already responded to a post I put on my blog earlier today.

I guess that PM was to inform me I'd been put on moderation. I told her (again) to delete my account. I guess she missed where I posted the request here.

Ah...that's better.

OK. I'm ready to get back to Dune. :D

(One point she did bring up does bother me: Are people still having trouble reading the blog? I tweeked the CSS back in August, but no one else had complained since, so I just figured it was OK. I'll check it out on some Windows machines from uni tomorrow, but if people using Exploder and Firefox on Windows, especially the new system (what was it, Vista?) could let me know if it's readable or not, I'd appreciate it!)

I use Firefox and Explorer and have never had any problems with the readability of your site. I've been able to see every post and comment in "super"-clarity. :wink:

She's also ranting on SC's blog this morning about how she has no resources to fix the problems over at Arrakeen. Its not like several of us didnt offer her money to fix these things? I think I even offered once to send her a new monitor I have lying around.

Whew...that's a load off my mind.

Yellow Birdie...you're here! :D

(Sorry, Sparafucile, some jokes I just can't let go of. :oops: )

Actually, after she posted that, I went back through the comments and found yours back in August, with the link to the image you uploaded showing what you saw. (I was suprised to see that the image is still there, btw!) I checked the CSS file on my PB and saw that I last edited it on August 7th, the same day as your comment.

Had me worried! It looks fine on all my computers, so I kinda forgot about it. :(

Anyway...

I'd like to thank y'all for jumping in on the comment thread while I was otherwise occupied this evening. I was playing over on MySpace, discussing the GP with Oyabun Nicodemus. I didn't figure she'd come back with such a vengence.

Anyway, I'm pretty much done with this topic. Time to get back to Dune! :D

I'm convinced that Hyppo is totally insane and power-thirsty. I think I'm going to ask that my account be closed. No point in sitting around waiting for something to happen that won't, and no point in creating useless drama for her to moderate to hell and back.

Actually, you might not need Almost Undeleted. I belong to a message board that has private subforms achieved via a feature called "usergroups." Members of the usergroup don't have any special options other than access to a special subforum. The subforum is private and what is written within cannot be seen by other members nor can it be found on the internet search engines. The entire message board can be public with free access even to non-members, but that one subforum for a specified "usergroup" can be exclusive and private.

I've been part of the usergroup for years and it functions quite well. It acts as a guys/gals club, where a select group can discuss and fight with each other about board issues without dragging larger groups into a bigger conflict. It's actually functions very well and is a great stress reliever for members that want to get stuff off their chests.

EDIT This message board I refer to is a phpBB system.

I've added a comment to SC's blog but I'm not sure if I did it right. Fucking hell, she is truly pathological. What the fuck is she droning on about her mother for, does she honestly think anyone gives a shit? Dumb cunt. I'm amazed that liar can accuse SC of lying. What a twat.

I was thinking of using the usergroups, specifically to segregate the OH and Preeks.

I suggested that at DN a long time ago.

Dont you want them to come together? You probably wont have too much debate if you dont allow that.

Or are you talking about restricting preeks to one area, but giving OH the ability to jump from one side to another? That may turn off some preeks who feel restricted and bound.

I was thinking of having a forum open to both too. One thing I really hated about DN is that even though there are seperate forums for the classics and the new books, you couldn't ever discuss one purely without someone from the other group coming in and saying, "nu-uh, that's not what the new books say."

OK, so some forums open to all, some open to preeks only, and some open to OH only? Three sections? That may work. But youre setting it up as a battlefield, so you may want a Cunt Corner too.

I like having her there in free for all mode.

But Ill be it will really piss her ass off if nobody at all responds to anything that she says over there. I do believe that she is stirring the pot for personal gratification/attention.

She was insisting on SC's blog that we never offered any help or money for moving 'keen to better boardware. So I went to 'keen and found the specific posts where we did in fact offer and pointed it out to her there and at SC's blog. So she did a half-hearted apology for forgetting we had made that effort.

I never asked to be an admin, I always wanted to be...


A LUMBERJACK!


Seriously though, they asked me to do it. I tried to make it clear that I'd only been a moderator before (at www.americasarmy.com) and I'd never been an admin, so if they wanted me to do anything I just needed a little instruction. But all I got was bitching about how me and Crys didn't do anything. AFAIK, he even asked to be demoted to moderator. I asked for a to-do list and she basically called me a baby.

I don't need to go to the internet for that, I can get that kind of abuse at home.

If I'm going to spen the time to teach myself how to admin, I may as well do it on my own forum.

I always wondered why that place had so many moderators and admins there? That Umma guy and two others never showed up. And why even have a moderator if you have five admins?

Did she offer to pay you guys from ad revenue or anything?

I don't know, usually you have one admin and several moderators.

That Umma guy and two others never showed up.


He was supposed to be doing the RPG but I think it died from lack of participation. The others, well, you know how people just dissappear from the internet sometimes.

And why even have a moderator if you have five admins?


Who knows, it should have been the other way around.

I like you Mandy. You're a fine girl. What a gooood wife you would be. (Oh, sorry, I guess that was actually "Brandy")

I can't tell if its your nasty disposition, or 6's nipples in your avatar. Either way, you rock! :D

Eh. I'm pretty sure I can guess how much he cares. I'm sure the 10th grade is very strenuous these days, but if he cared at all, he'd find the time to show the fuck up. Let him contact us if he has any questions.

I'm not sure where she came from, I don't really remember her being much part of any Dune conversation at DoD. But I tend not to remember the off topic stuff.

Well, I've gotten it out of my system and I'm ready to move on.

Phaedrus and Teg have joined the Concordance Project, I've got to get on the Science of Dune book, the "ghosts in the machine" are stirring again, and I'm detecting a slight disturbance in the Force that always means Kevin is about to post another stupid blog any time now. I'm good. :D

It's not a crime to write a crappy fanfic! (is it?) :D The funny thing is.. she's still denying that what she did by reading Crysknife's email was truly a bad bad thing. Makes me wonder how many other emails she has read in the past. I mean.. I'm an admin at a forum and it has never crossed my mind to snoop into people's private communications, I don't even know how.. and I don't want to know how. There are so many other flaws I have as a moderator.. it's funny that she jumped on the fanfic, she could have easily found out that I tend to argue with people when I should bite my tongue, and whatever else I do that I probably shouldn't.. at least when people get pissed with me I don't put them on moderation, and I have NEVER used bold red font to indicate I'm wearing a mod hat!!

IIRC she initially denied reading the email. Its pretty pathetic, and there is absolutely no question its crossing the line. Sorry, but asking an owner to make a change at admin is NOT "hijacking" a site.

I sure won't defend that hag, but I will say that most fan fiction is awful. I haven't read your fanfic Mandy, but as a rule, I generally avoid it unless it's comedy :)

It is a comedy.. it's my idea of what KJA would do if he had both Dune and Battlestar Galactica in his control. It's supposed to be bad :P And I agree about fanfics being mostly terrible, I hardly ever read them and that was my first attempt at writing one.

Hyppo is such a fucking liar. She's crawling all over SC's blog still, demented old turd. She'll never leave it, she'll just keep coming back so she can have the last word. Her poor cats must be sick to death of hearing her telling them all about the day's excitement on the internet. I've just exposed another of her lies on SC's blog. She wouldn't recognise the truth if it came up to her and dropped down dead in the street in front of her after catching a whiff of her festering, malodorous and hirsute minge.

I'm still in the office but talked to Teg just a little while ago.

He said the comments thread on the blog post were up to 80-something the last time he looked.

:shock:

And I thought it had died down last night.

I had a perve around DN again the other day, ended up looking at my old "What's in a name?" thread.

Sheesh...TAZ really was a fricking PITA, wasn't he? Byron let him get away with a lot of shit. (Not that I didn't dish out my fair share as well. :D )

I've tried coming up with a good, new name combining Sequelites and Prequelites (and sooon, Interquelites).

No joy yet. :(

TAZ was a huge pain in the ass. And his little yapping yes-man, Tyrant, was equally annoying. Turns out that pussy switched sides later when TAZ abandoned him. :P

I kinda miss TAZ. At least you could sling shit at eachother with him; nobody wants to play like that anymore :cry:

I had thought about calling them Andersonians, just to devalue Brian's role in all of it (which I suspect was minimal; see Dune of the Dead :D ) but I doubt that would fly for very long either.

I love the way Arnoldo (Has he come back to Arrakeen, I wonder? Or is there any reason, now that his work is done? Teg says Old Prune Dude [his bon mot, not mine] has been by) slings "Orthos" around like it's some kind of insult.

So those of us who are true to his grandfather's word in an Orthodox like manner are beneath contempt, while his business partner (master, more like it) gets all the respect. Even if Anderson and his girlfriend Herbert didn't suck ass, that would be totally wrong.

That's pretty good :)

RIP 'Keen. Its so fucking dead over there. I mentioned to Omph before, this is what I was hoping would happen to dunenovels when we all left, but they had enough "illiterati" to keep them going. "keen was mostly OH's, and now they are all gone. Its a sad demise; I hope Hymaintenance is happy with what she has done. I'm glad I didn't start archiving more stuff from the "official site" to there--it would have been a huge waste of my time :cry:

(PS, god damn that sig is disturbing CL :shock: )

Heh. We could always call it the "Canadian solution."

No need to paint us all with the same brush. Like I said, she in no way represents a normal, healthy, mentally sound and happy Canadian.

Dear Ann Landsraad,

I'm a parasitic bug who has this problem with a net nanny who is trolling my blog. I would prefer not to get too nasty—it's really not worth my time any longer—but she really is becoming quite obtuse.

Any advice as to how to deal with her? Thanks in advance!

Well, just so everyone knows that hasn't gotten over to SC's blog yet. It was me that posted that bogus apology under her name. I thought someone had done the same thing as Omphalos, so I figured turnabout was fair play. I've come clean over there as well.

I actually feel bad about it now after I saw Crysknife's post. I think that really pissed him off that she had apparently made a public apology but didn't have the decency to make a private apology to him.

Sorry about that Crysknife; that joke was in bad form and I didn't mean to piss you off :oops:

Don't get too down on yourself, B. You DID post that it was you before...but maybe Crys missed it or thought you were kidding.

All water we've passed under the bridge now. No harm, no foul AFAIAC. ;)


(I'm still a big grumbly about the implication that it was me, though, but that's not about you. :evil: I mean, hell, when have I done something and NOT taken credit for it. :D Here's to someone coughing up a hairball at midnight!)

Dear Consternated in Carthag,

Bite her on the ass. Be firm about it. Let her know that if she doesn't stop you are going to bite her on the ass again. If her ass is too obtuse or she's too obtuse to understand she's being bitten on the ass, try net nanny software.

Two posts in about 5 days. One from some guy talking about actors and Hyppo responding. I didn't bother to read either.

I'm kinda surprised she hasn't called in favors and all to get people to start posting. Or are those coffers empty?

Or...has she simply not thought of it?

Oops. :oops:

Being brutally honest about it, isn't that about the rate before the First Diaspora, from DN? Time was it seemed like Freak's posts to the reading group threads were about the only new ones.

I joined about six or so months before I got active there, which happened after the scattering, and I recall there being about five or so active posters. Arch. The guy with the samurai swords in his avatar. The guy with the Gunslinger sig. 13athroom, Freak, Chig and maybe one other. I don't recall it ever being that dead. Not even arnoldo posting there anymore.

But hey, I guess he got what he really wanted all along.

TO THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN DARKNESS, TIDINGS OF GREAT JOY!

In case you've missed her latest comment on my blog, The Regent says:

But now that there isn’t as much moderating to do at Arrakeen, I’ve been able to get back to my graphics projects.

This means a stunning new avatar, I'm sure.

Or maybe that fabulous and long-fabled new skin she has been going on about?

WHO CAN STAND THE SUSPENSE?! :shock:

(It occurred to me after reading the above that there's some psychological stuff going on with those avatars. Can we say Queen of Denial? She's just a few years younger than me, so there ain't no way she looks as young as the girly avatars she uses, you know? I may have to undertake a new graphic project of my own.... Bug-eyed Kitty was just the beginning! :twisted: )

From years of experience I have observed that when a woman won't show you her picture there's usually a good reason.

But that's fine, I guess that's the "beauty" of the internet.

It depends on when that psychopath lets me back in. I have a feeling that she is just going to extend the suspension on the 25th and try to play some more games with me. If that's the case, then I will have to be stealthy. Ill be sure to save my activities for posterity though.

Not for a while, but I just went there now and got this:

Some moronic cunt wrote:Sorry, an error occurred. If you are unsure on how to use a feature, or don't know why you got this error message, try looking through the help files for more information.

The error returned was:

Your account has been temporarily suspended. This suspension is due to end on Feb 25 2008, 07:23 PM.


But in better news, when you google "evil Hyppo Arrakeen" T(A)U comes up first! YEA!!!

I've already posted about this in a comment on my blog, but I went over to Arrakeen (I was still logged in!) and changed my sig to "DELETE MY ACCOUNT AND ALL MY POSTS, YOU STUPID COW!" and added Bugeyed Kitty for good measure.

Then I changed my email address (to a bogus one), which deactivated my account. The board has sent a reactivation code to the bogus address, which could have amusing repercussions. Since I'll never get the mail myself, there's no way I can ever log in again.

My Inner Brat is well pleased. :D

I think that means she has curtailed your access privileges. She probably didn't like you posting the Deathwatches.

Anyway, she has deleted my account! A victory for the small and petty! :D

That's really fucked up. What if I wanted to go post something in the beer, or politics thread with Byron and arnoldo? I'm a little surprised she did that considering I've pretty much stayed out of the whole argument. I can't remember the last time I used the word Bitch to describe someone, but if that's what she's done than she's a real bitch. :roll:

I'm still activated there. There have only been a couple of posts. A guy named "spicebeer" asked if melange was necesssary for mentats to do their thing, and Hyp answered:

Hm. I seem to recall from the 1984 Lynch movie that Mentats use a drug of some sort, but it's not melange. I would think they would probably use the spice if they could afford to, though, or if their employer/patron made it available. After all, spice is supposed to make one able to think faster and better and be more aware of what's going on.

Yeah, my comment wasn't meant to imply it was "necessary", just that she didn't know what the name of that "drug" was. I would have thought almost any die-hard Dune fan would know that immediately.

I know, I'm just pointing out (in answer to the guy's question) that it isn't required for mentats to do their feats.

I remember Hyppo writing once that as long as people followed the rules over there that there wouldn't be any problems. They could say whatever they wanted elsewhere (Chig's blog) and it was fine because they weren't breaking any invisionfree rules. Now my account is apparently suspended with no warning, PM, or email. I guess she lied about that too.

Our favorite class act appears to have decided to attack Freak now:

Or are you referring to Sandworms, which you claim not to have read?

Basically she's calling him a liar. Or do I misread that?

Typical behavior for a wounded, cornered beastie, lashing out like this. I guess something stings. ;)

I just received an email informing me that I had a new PM over on Worm's site. So I went over and logged in and...guess who it was from!

From: Hyppo
To: SandChigger
Posted: Mon Feb 18, 08 1:30 am
Subject: Real cute. Only, not.

So what did I say that made you decide to go back on your word to not moderate or censor people who post on your blog? I'd say getting a redirect back to Arrakeen is definitely a form of both. Or is this payback for Nekhrun? I PM'd him at Arrakeen to explain what happened. He hasn't been suspended.

I've posted other things on your blog that have nothing to do with this feud, and everything to do with supporting the Orthodox Herbertarian side. I have no idea why some are now calling me a "preek" (it's pretty childish, in my opinion) -- I remain as disdainful of the KJA/BH books as I ever was. Or is that I post civilly with the non-OH people, period? That's so much elementary schoolgirlish peer pressure crap, SandChigger. I'd thought you were smarter than that. But it appears I was wrong...

Here's my reply:

From: SandChigger
To: Worm
Posted: Mon Feb 18, 08 2:10 am
Subject: Fwd: Real cute. Only, not.
Hi, Worm.

I assume you haven't been following our Internet drama over on Arrakeen and my blog and that, even if you've heard about it from Ninti/Mandy or someone else, you don't want to get involved. I personally have no intention of bringing it here. Obviously others do not feel the same:

But it appears I was wrong...

I have not PMed her or harassed her in any form here on your board. She has my email address and had no need of using the PM system here. I'd appreciate it if you could gently reminds her that "what happens in Fight Club stays in fight club"...or should at least. I have no intention of replying to her here.

Sorry to bother you with this.

That was a smart move, I think. I have informed him of what's been going on, but we haven't talked much about it. He just wants everyone to know that they are welcome at Haven.. but he doesn't want the feud brought there.

Like I told him, she has my email address (unless she fumble-finger lost it or deleted my mail), so PMing me over there wasn't her only means of contacting me.

Besides, the "ban" isn't permanent...although this doesn't exactly well dispose me toward the early lifting of it I was considering....

So, this is what you meant! I PM'ed Worm the day she started posting at the Haven again. He was grateful for the heads up, I think, and was happy when I told him I have no intention of engaging her at all there. I think he was a little shocked that she had gone so insane so quickly. But you did the right thing.

We flew in this morning. As I'm saving my holiday allowance in work, I've come into work after not sleeping for over a day and I feel like a zombie.

The holiday was amazing, I can't believe it's over. I avoided the balut.

I've just checked Chigger's blog. It's actually quite a depressing read, when you realise a grown adult is so attention-starved that she'd come back for more abuse. Oh well, her last responses were really boring.

What's all this about another fansite Jacurutu?

I checked Arrakeen for the first time in weeks and got this message: Sorry we are offline for now. We are working on the skin, graphics, buttons, organization etc. Please bear with us and we will back soon.

I just wanted to see if she'd banned me for the stuff I've said here. OH and Hyp if you're reading this.. :D Nice try.

I get the same log in window as always now...and of course I can't since my account is gone.

She may as well take it offline if no one is posting, no? It's dead and she's just hiding it. :roll:

I heard back from Worm; we're cool. I also sent her an email and got a novella back in reply. (And since she expects me to repost it here, I won't. :P )

But she did say that she hopes we can all make peace someday. And that she might consider lifting the access bans but we have to be willing to meet her halfway.

I'll eat my own poop first. But I will be lifting the bouncy thang on her on my blog tomorrow morning (my time).

Is that not the very situation that was offered her when she joined here? That all went south REAL fast.

Personally, I don't have much to argue with her about. The only thing that really bothered me to the point of action was her stubborn refusal to do anything about the lousy situation on Arrakeen. Of course, the way she acted after "exodus" and the stupid things she said didn't help. I'm still convinced she doesn't "get it" and thus any forum under her command is doomed.

At this point she could create the simplest, most inviting and efficient forum with a kickass color scheme and all the smileys I could ever want; I still wouldn't set foot in it.

God, how desperate is she? After everything that's been said and done, I could never believe another word she said.

As for Arrakeen, khala, it doesn't really matter what it looks like. With that demented bat at the controls, the colour scheme really isn't the problem.

I'll tell you what man, I have to give you "props" because you full on predicted this very thing would happen. I even argued with you and kind of insulted you; but man, were you right on money. The site was too cumbersome and the admin was unwilling to listen to any of our requests or suggestions. Oh well, Jacurutu is growing and will be much better I think in the long run.

Yeah, more's the pity :cry:

Regardless, think nothing of it. You eventually understood the reasons why my concerns were justified and you're a better person for it. As we both know, there are some people that never seem to learn.

Don't know, don't care. I'm hoping by the time she reopens, all of you will feel the same so I don't have to hear about it.

Oh, please just let it die! You all talk about it as if it's a person, rather than just a message board. If everyone who was active there has moved onto Jacurutu, what exactly is it you're missing about the place?

As for this so-called revamp and grand re-opening, it's pretty obvious she's shut it down to stop people from copying threads on to Jacurutu. Yes, I do believe she is that small-minded and petty, it's certainly her style.

Khala, Arrakeen is dead.

That's Pardot Kynes over at Jacurutu, isn't it? My understanding was he was made an admin to run some game at 'Keen and because interest waned he basically resigned/retired.

I'm pretty sure he was only a moderator, not a full admin.

There's always Edric and Baron of the Mice. :roll:

It's like the guy in the neighborhood who has all the junk in his yard. People complain that it's an eyesore...

Not I. Probably those people who can't stop posting over at Dune Novels. :roll:

(Just kidding. I perve them, too.)

But I will have a look if she ever opens it up to the public again. Which she probably won't, since she knows we'll have great fun ripping her "lipstick on a pig" to bacon shreds. :lol:

(Just threatening to do that will be enough to keep it closed. I'm figuring few new people will be interested in joining a forum they can't read or lurk on beforehand. Since the majority of the current members never post, may not even visit, it will eventually die. 8) )

(Of course, she'll read this and think, "Oh yeah, I'll show you!" and open it up. And then I can rip it to shreds. 8) )

(Or she might figure out this reverse psychology offensive and not open it up. In which case it will die. Mission accomplished. 8) )

Hehe, now you're confusing me chigger. :D

So she's back on your blog and stirring the pot again. Its just amazing to me that someone will continue to take that much abuse. She's incredibly dense. I've decided that she has a sexual attraction to arnoldo; has anyone noticed that she just keep bringing him up but nobody else is? Nobody even responds to her arnoldo references anymore, yet his name just keeps popping up in her posts........ 8)

:D

I don't know, mention of the two of them together, with sexual attraction added to the mix, I can't help thinking of this:

“Well,” said Hypalia, “I must return forthwith to Arrakeen. “Arnoloco, prepare my travelling bags”

Paul recoiled in shock at the sight of the creature who came in from the anteroom. It seemed to be half-human, half-slig with a two foot tongue encrusted with dried faeces, clearly the result of incessant arse-licking.

Im certain she strips her clothes off before she goes to Chig's blog. There is just something perverse about the way she keeps popping up. I think her sexual gratification comes from posting there, at least since arnoldo dumped her.

"get off easy" eh... :P

I have to admit, there is something strangely perverse about being as abused as she is but coming back for more and more. I imagine she was checking daily to see when here mini-ban would be up. Its just strange if you ask me...........

D'ya think she could be so friendless that she is just hoping to wear us down and make us give up? I have noticed that she keeps posting on-topic comments in other threads, like she still wants to be part of the community. But then she goes off and snaps at everyone in the other threads.

Meh, call yourself a lawyer? The only reason that creature posts token contributions in other subjects on the blog is for her pathetic ready-made defence against the next accusation of Irwinism - "but I do make constributions to the blog so I'm not a troll so nyur"

Anyway, for the less imaginary of you, here's Hyp getting ready for another satisfying day of policing those threads which "need" moderating -

And yes, she lurks here. She's admitted that much once already.

Im very sorry, oh attorney-wanna-be, but Im pretty sure that she thinks that this little "problem" we all have will go away and she will be returned to her rightful position as grand poo-bah of the Dune forum world. Shes nuts, CL.

I am. That sick bitch cannot take a fucking hint when its wrapped around a 4x4 and thrown at her head.

Hey, is there a creative way of chasing her off without banning her ass? Maybe program the blog to put "ATTENTION: I AM A SILLY CUNT!!!" at the top of every message she posts from now on?

It would probably be possible to code something like Omph, but really, why waste the time just for her? I'm doing blinkeys today and have a special one in mind for her, tho. ;)

And, Nekhrun, vying for that 300th spot might not be just a joke; the thread's up to 250 now.

Mastah B, PM/mail me if you've any ideas on what you want your poysonal blinkey to look like. I'm making a spayshul one for you-know-who right now. Mwa-ha-ha. :twisted:

I need to apologise for my earlier post with the picture of Hyppo. I said "imaginary" instead of "imaginative". It was early morning, and I'm not a morning type of person.

Anyway, the slimy turd is still on the blog. She'll never leave, unless her cats dump her in a old people's home. with no internet access.

I can see that thread reaching 1,000 posts.

Mandy, you mentioned on the blog something that would embarrass Hyppo but you didn't explain what it was. Go on, tell!

I rather prefer imagining them eating her alive after she has become paralyzed from blood poisoning resulting when Irwin perforates the ole box lining during a rather too intense session of slurp-slurp.

Anyway, how's this?

I know I said I wouldn't talk to her anymore, but I really couldn't help myself.

I know it's a waste of my time, and even if I prove her wrong on the particular issue I'm taking up, she'll just ignore it and pretend it didn't happen. But my theory is that if she's proven absolutely wrong on every issue, she'll have to pretend none of us exist and go sit at Arrakeen and talk to her cats.

Just went and read it. Very well put. :)

I've decided countless times to just ignore her...but it hasn't worked yet. Oh well.

(When I was a kid, I loved to do outlandish stuff and when someone called me on it in front of my mother, explain that "I wuz brot up bayud."

Always earned me a hefty smack up the side of the head, but it was worth it seeing the look of absolute mortification on her face. We had an odd relationship that way. :D )

I love her list, though: "People who express themselves mainly in profanity/vulgarity...have..."

(1) limited intelligence
(2) low emotional maturity, and
(3) a general disrespect for other people

Hmmm.

(1) I know I'm smarter than she is, at least.
(2) I prefer to think of myself as "young at heart." :D
(3) I reserve my disrepect for those who deserve it. In general. She told me today she holds me in such contempt that she "can’t think of anything that adequately conveys the quality of" it. Kewl. :D

I love her whole holier than thou attitude. If she really wanted to be the "adult" in all of this, she'd disappear... but she won't. Hi Hyppo!

Sorry CL, I can't say what she did. She knows, and she knows that I know, and that's good enough for me :)

God, that blog is such a mess. You can't reason with the fucktard, she's never wrong. I tried that when she was goading me into quitting Arrakeen. Since then I've realised she's a thick cow who gets off on bitching with people, so I just treat her as a source of a few cheap laughs.

Anyhoo, I've read and contributed to the blog again. I have asked the creature if the reason she had that avatar and tore down the Britney picture is because she's fighting her lesbianism.

I think she's a repressed dyke.

I think we should complete a dossier on Hyppo. Everything we know about her, which can be used as a reference tool when responding to her bullshit posts. My personal favorite is the issue with her dad. Just makes her look so skeezy abandoning him to the Canadian government like that.

Besides, none of us express ourselves MAINLY in profanity, just on occasion. Her list doesn't apply in any case, but even her original condition doesn't apply to any of us.

When has she EVER shown intelligence, emotional maturity, or respect for anyone else?

That's a trick question, right? ;)

I don't know...I felt kinda sleezy after I brought up her grandma (in the jar (in the closet (on her front porch (so the cats can't get at her (and poop))))), but bringing up her dad like that is kinda low, ain't it, Omph?

:(

OK, lip-service done with. Where'd you get that info? I don't remember her posting about it, but maybe I missed it.

Spill time! :D

(I love this sleezy feeling, by the way.)

Sorry if anyone else feels queasy about what I said, but I really don't care any more to hold back at all. As far as I am concerned, with her it is officially no holds barred. Whatever I can get away with legally I'm going to try. I'm sure she will just pout about how that brings me down and causes me to lose the battle. Whatever.

It comes from, IIRC, something she posted at Arrakeen the week I started participating there regularly. I could not believe what she said, so I sent her a PM, or maybe posted on the board, asking if she meant to say financial assistance, as opposed to them her forcing them to take him away from her. Actually, I was so shocked I think I even asked her about it later on. Never got a response. Later, it all made sense to me.

No, no. There is much more. And much more opportunity, I think. The skin forum she belongs to is here:

http://gmmskindesigns.ipbfree.com/index.php?

I found the latin forum she belongs to also. This is just the start.

I was just kidding about the queasy/sleezy bit. Consider it a contemptuous wink at PC conformity. ;)

FWIW, she's posted a reply @ you; says she's fighting to get her father back so she can take care of him.

Latin forum? Post the link, that sounds kinda interesting, actually. (Oh, puhlease, don't look at me that way. You knew I'm weird about languages. I've an account on the Latin WP, after all.) May have to join as Trombicula arrakensis! :D

(Of course, she'll read this and rush to "warn" them about me. Canis meretricia. 8) )

Addendum:

Gah...now THAT is annoying. Takes FAR too long to load.

(How do you know she's a member there? I couldn't see the members list.)

http://latinforum.org/

She's in the membership list there.

Addendum:

Gah...now THAT is annoying. Takes FAR too long to load.

(How do you know she's a member there? I couldn't see the members list.)


I Googled variations on her e-mail address from the Duncan Idaho fansite (shes there too: http://guiding-light.org/fanlistings/semperfidelis/) and found here there. That skinning site really is a fucking mess, but you can find her there if you look hard enough. I think I found a reference to Klea from Canada on a page that lists user contributions. Shes some sort of admin there.

I also used this as a starting point.

Lastly there is a Library Thing page out there, but there isnt much there. She does list Sandworms in her 26 books though. Im not done yet. Somewhere out there are some juicy things to throw in her fucking face.

Oh. Dear.

I can see y'all's prepared to take this to the next level. This could be a very, very rough ride. :shock:

So break out the lube. YEEHAW! :twisted:

The Latin forum looks kinda interesting, but is a bit disappointing in that they haven't customized the boardware by translating everything into Latin. In that sense Vicipaedia is much superior. ;)

XXIII posts by Klea, amica nostra, and nary a one in Latin.

THIS was choice:

"For the benefit of a novice, how do you actually switch back and forth between the browsers?"

Reply: "You just open a different browser program after downloading another browser. You can also configure it to be your default browser."

Kl-Kl-Klueless.

(At what point does this slink over the linE into cruel? ;) )


[Edit: "Slink over the link"? :shock: That was a weird typo, huh?]

Don't worry, I'll let you know. I have to go now though. I've got to finish skinning my younger sister's puppy before her birthday. It was a seeing eye dog. :wink:

Please don't explain. I'm sure I'm much, much better off NOT knowing.

I crave another "Nebiros moment." Remember when I made that little wanker fold like a house of cards? This particular nut (pun intended) is much harder to crack, but that wont stop me from putting my cracker around her head if I can.

A dossier on Hyppo! And tracking her down on other sites! I'll give that one a miss, but good hunting. :lol:

I'm being ignored by her, it's not fair. All I did was expose her as a liar, talk about touchy!
