    The only evil thing you can do is turn this board so that the central, focal point of attention is the Asylum. Every board would virtually be the Asylum, in the sense, that flaming and trolling WERE allowed and you didnt get punished for it.

    What am I saying? It's been happening since 2002 :D.

    I am beginning to question the sanity of our leader now.

    Its pretty obvious they are just going to be like LOL POST PRON ON FORUM(S), GET BANNEDZ! I will most likely not get involved anyways, no profit in it at all.

    Lol. I remember running over to Blizz and scream "YOOOUUUU SUUUUCKKAAAZZZZZZZZ!!!!" No wait, I didn't do that...but I did go over and give them a piece of mind at one point.

    I'm bored and busy procrastinating. Any chance there's a procrastination station for me on the team? Lol.

    Glad to see an intelligent mind here. What they are planning is just going to cause more trouble. It wont fix anything nor help the forum. Hell if I was the forum they spammed I would report it to the major search engines and they would take action. I've seen sites have their rankings slashed or just get outright banned for publicly planning and carrying out an organized attack. It's up to the owner and administration to hold back these types of behavior... not to encourage it.. or worse yet, join in.

    Any publicity is good publicity. Besides, you are making these outrageous claims that kinkarso and his roughnecks are going to spam boards incessantly in hopes of gaining new members. If you think that doing that's a bad idea, then chances are our promotion team knows that as well ;) Don't let your ignorance lull you into accusing the team of something they won't even do.

    Did he not say "Like screw around with blizzforums and other competing boards to get some traffic"

    Websters Definition of "Screw around" (From merriam-webster.com)
    1 : to waste time with unproductive activity
    2 : to have sexual relations with someone outside of a marriage or steady relationship : be sexually promiscuous

    Since I doubt they are going to be sexual with the forum (not even sure if at 12 or however old they are it even works for them yet) it seems that they are going to do something stupid at the competitors boards.

    Now screwing around on a forum usually means spamming:
    "Spam is the posting of advertisements, abusive, or unneeded messages on Internet forums."

    or trolling:
    "An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial and irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the intention of provoking other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion."

    You would be the one being ignorant if you did not notice the lack of wise decisions that have been made at this place lately. I sincerely hope that they do not go and make any stupid decisions, but history tells another tale...

    we go from site to site and post random shit to get people to join.

    ie spamming on a buncha boards "free WOTLK beta invites only at Battleforums.com" or "leaked inside source info from blizzard employee that posts on exclusively on battleforums.com".

    Basicaly stupid shit like that.

    Good to see someone appreciates what I say rofl. I tend to try to be mature as much as possible so I don't look like a little child to some people. But apparently, some don't see things the way I do. Or someone else does.
    The thing is though, this board has evolved into negativity. We are all "downers" to each other, even though we do not mean it, especially in the Asylum.

    I don't like taking part in these stupid "games" because I am not going to get anything out of it. And I try not get banned from other forums. If I don't want to go to them anymore, I simply just make a Goodbye thread and leave.

    I myself was hoping for enforcement. But then everyone uses the word Nazism a lot. And there are over 100,000+ boards that either do my style of rule-enforcement, or far worse. Hell, some boards you can get banned for calling a person an idiot. I was even banned from a board for saying ER Sucked, because the mod watched it for porn!

    Also, that is what you would do in that scenario. Not every person gets that "extreme". I myself only resort to that if its criminal action.

    Integrity, loss of respected members who don't want to look stupid, blacklisting etc. Depends on the person though.

    ok guys. The 'BF Terrorist Team' is just a cool name I thought of at the time. It has NOTHING to do with spamming, posting porn, or going out to bluntly advertise battleforums.com. In fact, probably nothing will even scratch battleforums.com's reputation or 'image'. All that will be done will be a few little-known marketing schemes.

    It was just a joke :p, don't take it so seriously.

    The first assignment is up already, so check it out if you're on the inside ;)

    Oh now I get it. Thanks for clarifying. I believe you were talking about it for some time, where you got members to join other boards and supply members, in exchange for other members?

    The words "Like screw around with blizzforums and other competing boards to get some traffic", very much sound like you are planning immature acts which will harm other boards. I suggest you use better terminology next time to clarify your posting.

    This would be a member exchange. I have never used it my board, but I have heard that they can work quite well if members stick around.

    Better terminology? Don't take everything so literally next time.

    He was plotting it for some time. The problem is Donny is selling the forum because he feels he isn't the one who should be running it.
