I know you're out there; I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us; you're afraid of

change. I don't know the future - I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how this

is going to begin. Now, I'm going to hang up this phone, and I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see.

I'm going to show them a world without you - a world without rules, and controls, without borders, or boundaries. A

world...where anything is possible. Where we go from there...is a choice I leave up to you.

the story as I understand it... (anybody who can correct me please do)

The Technomage name change AFAIK is related to the cool story he wrote, and doesn't seem to be a direct effect of this stuff at all.

This all broke out because of the NT post flagging thing, and apparently a lot of people venting frustrations on each other.

We got on Akky/TM's case about not flagging Nt posts properly, as we do with everybody who doesn't do it (remember Ninny and CyberGecco?). Now for some reason, he and Ravage got into it over this, although I suspect thats more a simple matter of having an execuse to resume an old fight then anything else.

Now kwerkey (who as President is a Moderator) went through and edited some of his non-flagged NT posts (I've seen them myself, they just have nt as the message body, thus preventing the script from auto-flagging them) to flag them properly. Apparently he has a problem with this, and went around undoing them until kwerkey started using the Message Lock feature I installed all those days ago.

This then somehow spilled out into a war of words over who has power to do what. I'm trying to get ahold of the people involved (well, those who might be around right now at least) to try and sort this out outside of here so everybody can be happy again.

If that doesn't work, then I'll have to go over it again and figure out what to do. So lets hope it can be settled the right way (through discussion).
