why are you being so unusually aggressive today razz you're usually quite calmProbably just the combination of some anxiety after signing up for the marine corps, and the fact that I seriously despise all of you. Especially the newest mods. And most of all, the new chat mods. The admins have made sure to select only the most obnoxious fucks as chat mods.
That's where you are wrong. Some time around 2007 or so, when NG started going downhill I made a personal request to a couple moderators. After seeing images of several users who had been banned for several years, I had asked for the same. Imagine it like cryogenic freezing, I could have been banned in 2007 and unthawed in 2014. Around that time there were still some of the users I wish stuck around until today.
Over time I began to realize that many users were leaving because they had gained a personal life. Having a child, getting married, going to college, getting a job, busy with friends, many different reasons. So I sent an email to Tom's personal email address which I hadn't seen since around late 2005. I didn't expect a response because I figured that he would be using a new service. This old email was attached to the NG mainframe which supports the FTP server, it was part of the original system before I even signed up. That's why there are still some "old" pages that haven't been removed. As Tom said himself in another post, he doesn't have access to them any more.
After sending the email I was surprised to get a response almost instantly. Usually when you receive an email it shows some preview text as towards what is inside the email. But this one didn't have any, I figured it was an empty email. I've sent several. But when I opened this email I was surprised to find that the email was actually filled with text that was following down the page, forcing my window to scroll down. Thinking it was a virus, I tried closing the browser. Next thing I notice a hand extended out of my monitor and pulled me in.
That was the first time I had actually met Tom. You see, the Tom you know now is not the original Tom Fulp. There's a reason he hardly posts any more. You see, there's a reason hardly any good user posts any more. They were all taken into the NG mainframe. Tom has been in there for several years now trying to fend off the shitposting but lately the shitposting has been winning. After finding this out I asked him what I could possibly do?
And that's why I'm here, to bitch and moan about shitposters. Because I'm the hero Newgrounds deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So they'll shitpost me. Because I can take it. Because I'm not your hero. I'm a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.
