Golly, if it weren't for spammers stopping by to foul our lawn with their malodorous dropping, this place would be like a graveyard. Did everybody move to Borneo?

Nope, I'm here!

There just weren't any threads I wanted to post on today...

Funny you should mention ghostly, I am always here. But there just has been nothing interesting going on to post about. I'm not even playing the sims that much.

Florida is lots closer than Borneo! Better network connections, too!

Hmm... maybe we should stir up something interesting.

What motivates people besides sex and chocolate? I think that pretty much sum up Maslow's Hierarchy.

I want to know what happened to the user SimCityGallery, apparently he was banned.

Not banned; just eventually deleted a few weeks after she left. She closed her site, ostensibly in anger because she was not allowed to post political hate messages in the Hullabaloo, and left the community.

As far as I know, she is still around the Sims community in the guise of her other sock puppets. (No, I won't tell you who they are. She wanted to be anonymous here, so I will continue to respect that unless she provides a compelling reason to do otherwise.)

Why did that come up all of a sudden? Is she trying to get people sucked into yet another troll event?

Even now, I'm amazed at how easily people can be taken in by an anonymous network personality, even to the point of abandoning all logic and condemning real people whom they've known for years. That tells us something about the human psyche, but I'm not sure what.

*pictures SCG dressed in black clothes and a mask, coming in the middle of the night to persuade me to start trolling the Hullabaloo*

Relax Greg, the only reason I asked is because a long time ago I was browsing old threats and saw her username in black. Since you were asking for people motives I figured gossip would lit up some fire.

though, gossip has proved to be more destrutive than fire

Rolling on the Floor Laughing Gossip is usually a good fire starter all right!

I was kind of hoping for something more positive, though. That particular subject is definitely troll bait, and I'd just as soon have 'em continue to hang out under their bridge where they can be happy and not bother anybody. (But yeah, if you see a username that isn't linked to a user profile, it's because the user profile doesn't exist.)

I suspect that in our little community, the most positive attention-seeking behavior we could do would be a bunch of free downloads.

In other gossip: I saw that over at Insimenator they have a whole section just for posting notes about who has been banned. Mostly it's spammers, and I recognize some of the spammers' names from our adventures here. It's got me wondering if they've got a new set of tools for attacking bulletin boards.

Nah! I once posted about a website with free downloads and nobody said squat.
http://hullabaloo.simshost.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7371

So far, the most positive attention-seeking behavior is posting a good story.

To continue gossiping, Kaylyn still lurks the Hullabaloo,I cathched her online last night. But she mentioned to have a problem posting from her cellphone.
