It seems like Lief's posts sometimes have a sexual tint to them. I've definitely seen references to spanking more than once.

You're scaring me, Teddy.

But Susano and AHP both managed to be banned, yet Krall is still there? How does that work??

It's only a matter of time until Thande is banned...

I stop over there from time to time but not to post. There are some good timelines but overall I'm not really into it.

I do. Though I in many ways prefer the atmosphere here, and plus I can indulge myself with domestic politics, something I can't really do there.

I have an account there as well, also under Blackwater_NiK. I enjoy many of the timelines, though as of late I'm a lurker who turns up to post in the 2012 thread once in a while.

I post from time to time, though much like here I'm constantly afraid of making a fool out of myself, so I only post if I feel I add to the conversation. As a result I have like 20 posts. Smiley

The admin does seem a tad abrasive, but oh well. His playpin, his rules. He reminds me  alot of the guy who runs little green footballs. Now if you want crazy...

This is amusing; a list of all banned posters, and in some cases, they have their own page with the reasons for their banning:

Nothing. It is just a joke on how easy it is to get banned there. He was never banned.

By the way, have any of you all seen the 2010 election thread? I wish we could do something similar on this board.

Yeah, it's me. I was admittedly pretty much a blowhard and a retard back then (who wrote stupid althists, worse even that gporter), as well as a naive troll, so part of it was my own fault and sockpuppeting for so long afterwards was a petty immature thing to do. But it was like in 05-06 or something, when I was young and supported Stephen Harper. But I do recall my original banning had something to do with a political opinion I had voiced which Ian the Fascist didn't appreciate.

Still, AH.com is pretty much a site filled with arrogant stuck-up people who are far less intelligent than they think and who put themselves and their little forum on a pedestal as some Mensa. I go back from time to time to steal the blank maps which they do pretty well, but I haven't read their timelines in years.

Those stuck-up blowhards are mostly gone now.

Now it's full of bronies.

Bronies?  Btw I think that Ian is the main thing wrong with that site.  He's a fascist who came close to banning me for thread necromancy on my first post ever (when I still didn't know that there were dates according to posts, and I still don't think that it's a bad thing, especially a ban-worthy offense)

As a member of both forums, this little "rage at AH.com" thread makes me laugh so hard my jaw hurts. I mean seriously, either side accusing the other of being "stuck-up" is absolutely hilarious. I would advise everybody involved to get over themselves. Ian's forum is Ian's forum, and though he's obviously biased and a bit tyrannical, he has good reasons to be so (would you want gigantic flame wars between pedantic history nerds over folks like Enoch Powell?). Plus, he's got about a decade of experience in being an Admin, so honestly I trust his judgement in most AH.com matters.

Still, I can see where the AH exiles are coming from. Ian does tend to rule with more of a fist of iron then most mods, and he is a bit paranoid in trying to prevent flame wars. Additionally, he tends to have more animosity towards religious folks (especially conservative religious folks) then the other members.

So I'd say the truth is somewhere in the middle (cue South Park), though I'm a bit more biased towards Ian's point of view, having witnessed a lot of AH.cpm flame wars that could have been prevented by an early ban or kick by a mod.

Again, I think both the exiles/Atlas regulars and the AH.commers are taking this way too seriously.

Side note, when are you going to update An Era of Limits, oakvale? It's one of the best Post-1900 timelines on the site!

But I do recall my original banning had something to do with a political opinion I had voiced which Ian the Fascist didn't appreciate.

This was your last post on AH.com:

look sh**t, i dont give two cents about your philosophy of life you ass. you speak like a retarded psycho. and your philosohpy still does not explain why you lied.

But sure, your banning was political oppression.

I never actually said that, because, if you had bothered being honest and quoting the rest of that post, I basically said that I deserved the ban(s) because I was a retarded douche back then. That being said, I had said something (stupid, admittedly) about supporting Israel in the 2006 invasion of Lebanon which Ian didn't like, and got pissed over it - I was like 14 back then or something and I was a blowhard - thus I got banned after throwing a little fit. The sockpuppet accounts were something a typical 14 year old banned from an internet forum would do. 

Thanks for being intellectually honest next time.
