That was pretty much already decided. What I'm more interested in is why the name X is so popular amongst the youngsters.
X has always been a popular symbol for the illiterate.

But -X- isn't illiterate.

But he can be quite annoying with his literacy.

True.

However, XxXx wasn't illiterate either. Annoying as all get out, yes, but not illiterate.

It seemed quite clear to me that XxXx was Order Mage.

Arancaytar checked, and according to him, it wasn't Order Mage.

...which makes it all the more puzzling. A resurgence of Ed, perhaps?

According to Aran (Page 11 of this thread), nothing matched up. I'm guessing this is someone who's been watching these boards for a long time, and only recently registered to embark on a senseless kamikaze mission.

-X- himself was reduced to merely watching the forums for a long time, due to a very bad oversight. But he went on a senseless grammar and spelling mission, instead of kamikaze. Alright, he was kamikaze-ish in his first few posts, but that was at about 3 A.M. after playing every game he had for about 5 hours.

Trust me, your first posts were not in any way kamikaze-ish. Kamikaze is posting over 2000 x's and begging, begging *i to ban you. Your first posts were just a bit noobish, as were mine.

EDIT: My keyboard has now taken umbridge against the 'S' key.

According to Aran, as I understand it, the IP wasn't the same one OM used to evade his original ban. But this could easily be explained by OM moving or using a public computer.

OM has trolled before, right? And I know he's called for the unbanning of TM. He knew who TGM, Aran, *I, TM, Ed, and so on were. It's definitely an older member, and acted in a manner which emulated OM. What evidence is there that the troll wasn't OM?

Especially since of other two most likely candidates, -X- and XxX, -X- seems like a nice enough, if not overly enthusiastic, member and XxX could barely communicate through written language.

I know most of those members, and I'm a newbie. Therefore, it's not implausible that this was a new member.

What? The hatred. . . Gone?!?! No. . . It can't be! Gaaaa. . .

Seriously, though, -X- is happy that he has beaten back his noobish alter-ego enough for that to be possible.
*-X- is knocked out from behind by a noob*

Which scenario is more plausible, though? A new member for no apparent reason, or an older member who acts the way they usually do and who has pulled similar stunts before?

Dikiyoba doesn't think it really matters, though. A troll is a troll. Unless they have colorful, fuzzy hair. Then Dikiyoba may be curious.

-X- says that there are many, many, many noobs in the Internet, and quite a few have Web-Personalities similar to Order Mage's. It could, however just be an ordinary noob that likes to Role-Play, or is too unimaginative to have an actual personality.

Agreed. What's the problem? Is banned now. Move along.

Also, Dikiyoba finally got around to putting up some reviews.

Why, Smoo, Why? Why did you have to tamper with that machine? And why did you have to summon rats?

WHY!!!!!

Well, I beat Attorosi once. I'm sure I could do it again. After all, you know a newbie is going to stumble upon this situation. :P

Why not just punch in a bunch of commands and overload the thing? Or, better yet, just punch in the command 'Giant Cats Aplenty' so that, once the machine is done summoning rats, it will then summon over-sized cats to clean up the mess. Of course, then you'd need some over-sized dogs to take care of the over-sized cats. And then you'd need some over-sized doggy biscuits.

I fail to see how legions of giant cats would be a problem. Kitties are adorable!

A white spellcasting rat? Did I miss something?

It's the main villain in Smoo's latest BoA scenario.
