Hey there.. ^_^

Just saw you on some forums, and thought I would email you. Basically I own a message board for anime, roleplay and entertainment with about 1500 members, and would like to invite you to them. :P We are a friendly place (though a little crazy) with plans of world domination (was I meant to say that? er..heh heh ^^). Anyway, if you want to check it out, the link is:

http://www.animeleague.net/cgi-bin/phpbb/index.php

Hope to see ya around. :)


I was curious if anyone else did. If so, I think it may have something to do with the floodbot thats hitting the first page of the anime thread...

I personally say fuck this mike character and his forum in his ear, especially since nothing he listed appeals to me. I didn't even bother to open his link...

Yes, this guy decided to invade OHA and do exactly the same thing, He emailed me too.

When he did it to OHA way back, we put up a warning for any other webmasters and I spread the word.

And may I point out I hate that attitude?

"LOLOLELS! WE ARES PLANING THE WORLD DOMINATRIX!1!!!!

OOPS DID I TYPE THAT OUT LOUD?!? OMFG LOEL NOW I'LL CLIEK TEH SEND BUTTAN. ROFL LOLZ!!"

That.

I got it too.

I wonder, did he systematically go down the memberlist or just pick people who were on the Forums at the time...?

Would that "floodbot" be the reason for the sudden jump of the "Most users ever online" field at the bottom of the Index?

Kyhm Forums Forum Index wrote:
Most users ever online was 138 on Fri May 9, 2003 7:52am

I was wondering about that, but I didn't know what it could be. Was about to start a new thread about it but this looks like a likely explanation.

The flooding and the leeching are unrelated, and a mere co-incidence that they came together in such a way.

WHen it happened to OHA, the usercount didn't rise to any new heights, the same happened to Anime Source.

I've given them a 24-hour deadline to send a public apology and explain who did it. Otherwise I'm gonna go troll their asses into submission.

Eronarn, thats possibly the best news I've heard today.

On a side note, this type of crap can ruin the good reputation of a forum, anime forums are usually good fun, they are almost always free and the communitys in general are decent and quirky enough to keep things interesting and fresh for a long time.
This community seems no different, EXCEPT: Their admin(or someone) is being a wanker for no good reason. Unless he is somehow getting paid(no advertisments that I can see so its unlikely) per member, what he is doing is inviting people like Ero and myself over to troll.

Shit, I think I might troll, I haven't done it in a long time(Goatse.cxing Slashdot was always fun), also the way he tries to attract members does seem to assume an average mental age of about 12 amongst us. Any insult to my intellegence will be met with all types of drunken Australian antics. I got a four pack of Guiness here from my brother(thank you Chad) as a birthday present, I can become disruptive.

In conclusion I owuld like to take a moment to thank Kyhm, running a forum like this is costing you money, probably not as much as I think but still, your doing this all out of the goodness of you heart and we don't get a chance to thank you all that often.
And seeing crap like this makes me appreciate your work over the last year and a bit all the more.

To Kyhm!!!

Actor.
No I haven't started drinking

Sorry to double post but in his email(I just re-read the first post in this thread) he says he owns the forum, not to be fanatical of facetious, but you run a forum, you don't own them.
Grammer Nazi Away!!!
