That was not meant for you. It was for her.

You don't know your site history. These coalitions against me never work. Never.

  diceman: <saffuna: <You're not keeping a list of players who didn't make it.>

Oh right.

Seems to me there are only a certain number of roster spots on teams.>

I was talking about those who didn't make the cut because of death, incarceration.

Since you void your atrocity it's easy to see why you were confused.

  optimal play: <JimNorCal: A fair assessment, IMO.> Thank you.

<Robed.Bishop: ... The impatience and excessive worry shown by members is astonishing.> Agree.

The way some people have carried on here defies belief!

<tpstar> Quite a history!

I'm pleased to say I'm not familiar with any of it. I always kept out of that stuff.

I never had any problem with Daniel at all nor did he have any problem with me.

<saffuna: Once again, <tpstar>'s first post on Daniel Freeman's death: ...>

That was not posted on Daniel Freeman's players page.

<diceman: Hey, with any luck we can make Optimal's page look like DF's Page!>

  optimal play: <saffuna> My summary of the proceedings detailed above pertain only to Daniel's players page.

My point was that Daniel's page had become a shambles and I sought to identify the cause.

I did not find any offensive or belligerent posts by <tpstar> on Daniel's page.

I will therefore take this opportunity to thank <tpstar> for respecting Daniel's players page.

  optimal play: What I like about Senator Fraser Anning:

He doesn't apologise.

He doesn't retract what he said.

He doesn't back down.

<Senator Fraser Anning hit back following controversy around his maiden speech>
<Speech was slammed by politicians including Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull>
<The Katter's Australia Party senator stood by Tuesday comments about Muslims>
<He refused to apologise for using the Nazi term 'final solution' during the speech>
<Mr Anning said there should be a plebiscite by Australian people on immigration>
<In speech he claimed majority of Australian Muslims do not work, live on welfare>

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...

Quite often when a politician or celebrity or whoever speaks out about muslims or diversity or whatever, and there's a media backlash, they almost always back down and apologise and act all contrite, which just empowers the Cultural Marxists and makes them all the more vicious in their ongoing attacks against normal white people.

It's important to always stand your ground against Big Media, Big Politics, Big Business et al, and not back down, no matter how much vitriol they throw at you.

That's what I like about this bloke.

<Bob Katter has backed his senator Fraser Anning, saying his widely-condemned speech was “solid gold”, while hitting out at Muslims and Australia’s migration policy.>

https://www.9news.com.au/2018/08/15...

<“I love it. It’s on fire. Ninety percent of Australians have been waiting for someone to say it, and believe it.”>

At least 90%

Probably closer to 95%

Of course "Australians" excludes Cultural Marxists.

  optimal play: Daisy's Five Point Plan for Thrashing Leftists

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQi...

1. Know your facts
2. Remove the moral high ground
3. Don't interrupt
4. Point out the personal attacks
5. Don't let them make you angry

Some good advice from the lovely Daisy.

  optimal play: <jith1207> On page 23 <Aug-05-18 Dr Winston OBoogie: ... Life's just cruel, life's quite obviously <not fair> regardless of one or two people here claiming "Life is good. Life is fair!" on the day we heard of Daniel's passing.>

<DWOBoogie>'s reference to <"Life is good. Life is fair!"> is a pointed jibe at <Big Pawn>.

Prior to <DWOBoogie>'s above remark, <Big Pawn> had not made any comment on Daniel's page either directly or indirectly aimed at <Dr Winston OBoogie>.

BP made 1 brief condolence regarding Daniel, and 2 brief comments regarding the discussion about <Sneaky>.

His 4th comment on page 23 was to <DWOBoogie> about "phony tears" in response to <DWOBoogie>'s unprovoked snarky remark about "Life is good. Life is fair!" which was obviously aimed at <Big Pawn> and can only be interpreted as a deliberate attempt to elicit a response from <Big Pawn>, which he certainly got.

This forensic examination of the dialogue therefore reveals that <Dr Winston OBoogie> was not "posting normally" on that page and that it was in fact <Dr Winston OBoogie> who was the instigator and provocateur to BP.

One of the reasons why <Dr Winston OBoogie> was listed as culprit no.1

  jith1207: Ok, to each to his own opinion. I know both are guilty, but I'm surprised that one statement made him #1 but pointless fighting by BP for a number of pages got him only #4.

I don't know their history, so i don't know if life is yada comment really was a dig at the other. I am taking your word for that. The initiator might have been much more trolling prior, I don't know. If he sees that, I will let him tell his side of truth as to what he meant by that.

In any case, if we are talking about who is ruining almost all pages since then, it is clear in my opinion that #4 should be #1. #4 even made challenge to everyone that he cannot be removed or done anything against. So I think I will stay away from all this, and accept the fate of the site as is.

Thanks for your efforts and your responses. I hope I didn't come across as someone who tried to invalidate your efforts on this. As I said, I will take your word for that, but was just curious about the order of those 5.

  Big Pawn: Next Philosophical Question of the Week:

Which is worse, brazen arrogance or false modesty?

  optimal play: <jith1207> It certainly wasn't just that one statement which positioned <Dr Winston OBoogie> as the no.1 culprit.

That was simply one example of his conduct on Daniel's page, and which I addressed specifically in response to your query about "phony tears".

If the initiator was trolling prior, then it was in another forum which I was not specifically addressing in this report, and which shouldn't have been dragged over to Daniel's forum anyway.

You did not come across as someone who tried to invalidate my efforts and I welcome your queries, and hope I at least clarified some issues.

I don't know their history... >

User: Dr Winston OBoogie is an English convict who has had multiple user accounts deleted because of his egregious rules violations. Two accounts that I know of with certainty are <Mark Finan> and <usernotfound>. If you run across a comment from either of those, click on the user name and you will see: <Sorry, there is no such user "usernotfound" on record.>

He flamed Daniel Freeman for years, and caused DF more problems than most everyone else combined.

He is emotionally unstable and prone to vitriolic personal attacks at the slightest perceived slight, real or imaginary.

Aug-18-18  JimNorCal: <tga>. Thanks for the history. Nice to know. I wonder if ChessHigherCat is another if his monikers. Similar M.O.

I doubt it. Mark never showed much interest in chess games, and still doesn't.

Even with an engine I doubt he could produce the kinds of posts about chess that <CHC> makes.

Aug-18-18  JimNorCal: True. To be honest, I despise CHC but I acknowledge that he posted useful chess-related comments.

  jith1207: <TGA>: I have come across these profiles in the past and know little bit of tat history.

I still don't think these initial posts didn't have to turn out to be an exchange that would last for multiple pages, especially considering the time and place. Anyway, I had been lurking for many years before I became premium member and regular commenter in this site, but yet I had never paid much attention earlier to the different profiles in this site. So I understand you guys have seen a lot more, and hope you are doing a better job of jury about that.
