    So, I was just looking for a comment on here on Google, and suddenly, miraculously, Google gave me this link:

    https://thecantina.starwarsnewsnet..../booted-from-tfn-boards-after-3-4-years.9971/

    This is gold.

    - The bullies have won!
    - Its not what it used to be.
    - Things were just getting too unbearable for me (author disclosed in link)
    - its so bland
    - There's one specific member there who is so in love with his own views and his posts suggest he's an "intellectual elitist" to the extent I truly despise seeing his name on any posts. Apparently use of SW references in the "senate" section is not ok cause TFN is a SW forum (as I was told) by said sleemo (author disclosed in link)

    That's just the first page. And there are twelve!

    This happens every time someone gets banned from a site, or just gets pushed out by the community. I was banned from a pretty popular Star Wars RP board before coming here, and let me tell you, it was one of the hardest things i've ever done keeping myself from going around and shouting about how "bad" the site is and how unfair it was, when the site was, overall, fine, and the ban was largely justified.

    Clearly Ender.

    To be fair, this is definitely one time where Ender was right to tell someone to **** off.

    - Those mods are pure power hungry.
    - Like there's this one guy in the movie boards with a Transformers avatar who thinks everyone's an idiot if you disagree with Lucas on something
    - I know that guy...lol...and another one that claims that: "Han and Leia's kiss contributes to rape culture in cinema and real life"

    "It's more of a fanclub than a SW site." I'm having a hard time parsing that one.

    The kiss on the Falcon in ESB is incredibly problematic.

    I recently left there, of my own volition, because things were just getting too unbearable for me. The guy above me is right, the bullies have won over there.

    @SuperWatto, that post is by our own @Master_Rebado!

    - The JCC of the TFN was such a weird place. The guys there would come up with the weirdest of threads to talk about...
    - I would actually say the JCC was probably the most mature, simply because they could take criticism and immaturity and dish it back with just as much sarcasm and wisdom
    - Heh, not from my experience. The JCC was the worst next to the PT

    - It feels so good that JCC boards are not relevant anymore
    - SuperWatto was always one of the crazy ones anyway

    WTF!

    This is referring to @darth-sinister

    He's also called a "jerk".

    I've been in those discussions with sinister. I've never, ever found him to be a jerk. I think he's one of the most well-mannered users on this site. It can be very, very frustrating to have nerd discussions with him, but he's never a jerk.

    I know you're probably trying to be discreet but I don't care.

    - You are officially permabanned, my friend. At least Jello didn't send you a PM gloating about your ban. That's always fun /sarcasm.

    I see comments about the site every once in a while on Reddit, I’ll be sure to look for them now.

    I had a quick browse. Looks like the main problem are the mods? That’s confusing. The one thing I’ve never had a problem with on this site are the mods.

    I feel like this must have been like the release of Fire and Fury within the White House, with staffers both wanting and dreading a name drop.

    There's no such thing as a "Good Mod" when you've been banned from a site.

    I was banned from there in late 2001 for saying I had proof that the Jedi only used blue and green lightsabers in the Geonosis arena duel (other than Mace, who had purple). Which is funny because I had leaked materials in hand proving I was right, so I just let their competition have the spoilers instead.


    He really holds onto ****. Sounds like a legit ban reason, though.

    Is that a forum for republican star wars fans?
