Multiclassed in Prestige Smashing & Barding

Post #1 by Smashbard » Fri Nov 23, 2012 8:29 am

Herro. Current member of MTGS forums here. Soon to be former, but whatever.

Straw that broke the camels back was watching the blatant censorship of the Forum Awards nomination threads. Purposefully deleting any nominations for anyone who's ever been mentioned in the Gutter, unless of course you are a current Mod or member who supports the current regime (Jeff, I'm looking at you). It's pretty much the height of thought policing. You can't like or not like any members the Moderators tell you that you can't. You can't participate in democracy, because the election is rigged and we can't risk you screwing up our rigging of a pointless awards show where we get to self gratifyingly masturbate to our accomplishments that we really didn't earn because we just banned everybody who didn't vote for us.

No surprise to me that Galspanic is getting a lot of nominations for Nicest
Member and Best Mod so he's actively doing his best to make sure nobody can usurp his throne of E-Penis.

Anyways, I'll probably get along horribly with most of you. But I'm willing to give it a try. Better to be told your a dumb ass to your face within a forum of your peers than have overlords hiding with cloaks and daggers spreading lies among themselves in places that the regular members can't see.

Herp Derp. In light of my rant I forgot that this was supposed to be an introduction to myself.

I do not currently play Magic. Been wanting to get into it again but I just don't have the disposable income to afford $400 decks to remain competitive.

I am your prototypical nerd. I've played Magic The Gathering, 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons, Dragonball Z TCG, Raw Deal CCG, .Hack// CCG, Gamma World RPG, and more board and video games than I can count.

I suck at first person shooters, love RPG's, Turn Based Strategy Games, Pro Wrestling Simulators and anything with a Nintendo Logo slapped on it.

I'm married to a beautiful wife and have a kid on the way. I work for AT&T as Tier 2 Technical Support. Other than that, there's not a lot that is interesting about me. If you consider being an unrepentant nerd interesting. lol.

you should play EDH, 400 can get you a pretty good deck that will never rotate.

Welcome Smasbard! Happy to have you on board.

I wouldn't worry about not fitting in. Most of us know what it means to be harassed, and we just want this place to be somewhere we can all feel comfortable, regardless of any differing views everyone of us might have (which is something of a reasonable expectation, just like in real life). No one should be expected to conform to a specific stereotype/norm, and all we ask to people around here is
that they remain true to themselves, without fear of any repercussions.

Again, we are very happy to welcome you, so make yourself comfortable in this new home of yours! :smileup:

Well just think. Anybody willing to stick around through the growing pains can say they helped build a community worth staying for.

Possibly. We get some pretty livid callers a lot of the time. Pretty much if you call in, you're probably speaking to a Customer Service Rep. They're going to herp derp for about 5 minutes, push a button, and if it doesn't fix your issue, send you to Tier 2 Tech Support for actual troubleshooting. lol.

Mostly in the form of people believing that the government is listening in on their calls, or hacked their phone, little old ladies with Samsung Galaxy SIII's and social engineers. I'll probably start a thread in the H20 Cooler for fielding questions about tech support so I can get into further detail about what I do and how to help people with their cell phones.
