Thread: EB Deletion at TWC- Announcement

  1. #1

    Default EB Deletion at TWC- Announcement

    Hello all; I have been instructed by Sulla of TWC to inform EB of latest events; the EB forum in TWC has been summarily deleted, but mods are working hard to retrieve files. The case has been investigated and a culprit has been found from checking the log files. An announcment will follow shortly, and I'll be sure to place a link in this thread.

    RTR forum was also deleted. It happened as I was reading it, it was kinda scary to watch, posts disappearing one by one... like something out of Neverending Story.

    *GASP* THIS IS SABOTAGE!

    Here is what i think they should do:

    1:demote all mods/admins except sulla (as the accounts appear to be hacked)
    2: back up every thing
    3: find the IP address of the hacker


    Who would do such a thing? perhaps CA is involved.....they never been on very good terms with TWC...

    Whoa, it seems the crap really hit the fan on this one...

    Hopefully it will all get sorted out.

    I highly doubt CA's involvement, though. They have a bad enough rap as it is, and aren't stupid enough to pull this kind of stunt.

    CA don't have the time to do such things- in theory anyway.
    I reckon somebody was trying to cover up an argument which threatened to consume TWC's reputation...and so I'm glad that after requesting Sulla be granted emergency powers, he was gifted them by Spartan and now enjoys the status of being sole admin of TWC. Hail Sulla!

    Similarly, Hitler's own stormtroopers were ordered by Hitler to burn the Reichstag. Hitler then claimed that this was done by the jews and communists, and that he needed an expansion of power to stop these "terrorists"... this is an ongoing theme throughout human history.

    maybe the this forum will now get more visitors...but seriously though, this is pathetic. maybe an 13 year old boy is now doing his evil-laughter act and grinnign like an idiot: "muwhahahaha i deleted lots of posts from people i dont now, on a site that i dotn care about, about a game of wich i think it sucks, im so good" really pathetic..

    What we're looking at here is no act of a youngster. This was a carefully-constructed plot; the attacker struck the EB forum to play on suspicions that EB, in light of recent events, might be evacuating TWC...while the mods were distracted trying to verify this, the second big mod for RTW went down...and then the third. Whoever acted had a master plan, and knew their facts about the TW community.

    And yeh, I compared this to the Reichstag too; and many people compared it to Star Wars after the grant of emergency powers! I now enjoy a reputation as Squealer-Binks, a combination of a character from Animal Farm, and everyone's (not-so) favourite Gungan!

    Both of those cases are still under debate.

    Nero was innocent. It has been demonstrated that the fire started accidentally in a market near the Circus Maximus. Nero was in Ostia. He got back Rome and tried hopelessly to stop the fire, but he couldn't avoid that even some of his properties -full of valuable art works, Nero weakness- were burn. He opened his palace to assist the wounded, and many refugees settled in his property. Only when those rumors that pointed at him -possibly initiated by any of his many enemies- started to be alarming, he looked for a propiciatory victim, and those weird unpopular Christians, with their mysterious rites about eating meat and blood of their god, were ideal for the task.

    You see, Nero was a SOB. He murdered his father, his mother, his brother, his wives... He repressed the Christians, and any other his paranoid mind pointed as a suspicion. Seneca -who also was a SOB- and Petronius -who was a SNOB - payed high for betraying him. And, of course, he cheated in all the contests he took part. But...

    he didn't order the fire of Rome.

    On the other way, the usage of people as torches was common on the day, and, if you think well, I know many who would find his true vocation in that job, IMO.

    @ Dux
    yeha, i was being sarcastic. i saw a good docu on nero called :"the most evil man ever" or something of the same friendly nature. that docu also thought Nero did it. but i'm no expert. and your evidence seems to prove your point.
