Are you people very dumb or very stupid?
NationalLiberal sucked balls. Now I don't have anything against NationLiberal's alter-ego, but come on people, NL was a one-joke character, and there's always gonna be a problem when the character's one joke sucked in the first place.
If the member in question feels the need to make a new character, can you have him suck less and be funny more, and while you're at it, less annoying?
Personally, I'm glad he's gone. Even though I was on a long hiatus from this site for a while. I came back to see some of his posts while he was still around and found them to be immature and obnoxious. I didn't really see anything funny about his joke about stocks, etc.
I am almost visiting TDC at a daily basis. The last couple of days I have been busy and away though. When I came I was amazed (but not in a good way) that NL was deleted.
He could hardly be banned on #8. Should it not be interpreted as it is illegal to imporsonate TDC members? Basically it is not illegal to impersonate non TDC members? I mean would anyone mind if I signed up as RobinHood? Surely it cannot harm anything to call yourself NL and having a pic of John Howard as sig. He never claimed to be John Howard as far as I know (and would that matter, would anyone believe him)?
Rule #2. Maybe but not likely. He mostly had something reasonably useful to say in his own "I have stocks HAR HAR HAR!" style. He never attacked anyone in person with his posts (as far as I know). However he was not posting constantly and numerous times in the same thread destroying the ongoing conversation. And if that was enough to get him kicked *A LOT* of members deserve to be deleted by their numerous off topic and otherwise meaningless posts.
If Pete and Shab did not delete him (and Circy is away) it narrows it down. I dont think Wong Chung Bang did it ... neither that Rikus did it (I dont know him well though). SC is the only likely person to do it (based on previous actions) but why would he do it?
I also find it sad that NL has left us. It made the forums a more poor place to be. I also vote YES bring back NL.
Admins: Could we please get some kind of official statement as to why NL was deleted? If nothing else then at least to know what he did wrong (so we dont make the same mistake and get deleted).
It should be a rule that each member only have one account, as it is on a lot of forums. Then he would have been deleted anyway. I'm glad "he's" gone anyway, hurray to the admin who did it, keep up the good work.
If everyone's so sad he's gone, howsabout I pop up on the fourms and tell the same crappy joke over and over again, will that fill the NationalLiberal void?
Wasnt me, judging by the logs i do know who it was but i'll let the person explain for himself
ps. However in defence of that admin, people should just register using there own nick and not as nl, or spiderman or any other made up person, and the har har har bit and lets be honest that was getting really annoying, and was loosing its comic value way to quickly. Also the reply's where 99% of the time not on topic and where just a reference to the stocks thing, so yea he may have been funny at first, added some activity to the forums but his posts where not informative at all not directly related to the topic and after a dozen of replies like this i can see why 1 admin would delete him. Fair or not fair but you can take only so many har har's
Of course some people disagree and that's your right, and we will take note of that for a next time but it was not that funny c'mon Heck i'm surprised so many replied to this topic in the first place, ohhh well,
now...if you would excuse me i have to finish my "bring nl back" banner...j/k

NationalLiberal was created by Frank "tomatoman" Menzel about 1,5 year ago.
It is a rich old person, who has stocks in everything, he is extremely right winged and pretty nasty. This is the kinda person Frank, being a real red leftist, hates. Frank decided to create a NL-account on TDC, just for fun, but frank is the king of spam (Iklik-it veterans know that), and soon he was annoying everybody, and even bashing my games. I took over his account (his pass was not hard to guess), but before I could do anything circy changed the pass so nobody could use him anymore
Nationalliberal lived on on other places. I changed his personality a little bit. I was pretty annoyed about some people in the klik community who act like assholes. I wanted to make NationalLiberal the biggest asshole in the community. Nobody would be able to be a real asshole anymore, he would always be outdone by NL. There was one rule tho: NL never attacks a person.
This was kinda fun for a while on natomic, where circy was bashed by Brad the handsome, or on Total Klik where it was full of victims for NL, but after a while I just forgot about him.
A few weeks ago I saw some asshole-ish comments on TDC, and I was talking about it with a DC admin who shall remain nameless, and he reset NL's pass for me. The only thing I did with NL was making some posts (mostly the ones with pictures in it), and i had some nice DC-mail conversations with klik-assholes. The other messages were posted by other people who had acces to NL's account.
thats all there is to say about NationalLiberal, I never had complete control over him, and I only used him to bash the bashers. I now want to ask everybody in this community: when you see assholes, create a NL-account and attack! HAR HAR HAR!
