So sad G-U is dead. The worst is all the information there that was lost.

This is more for the sake of the new fans that just so happen to trip over this corpse of a messageboard. Information is the greatest weapon to have in ones arsenal.

I'm not completely surprised that that happened; maybe just a little. The ahem, Alpha G-fans, made the mistake of assuming that if they put all of their eggs into one basket, the GU in other words. (I can't actually believe that I'm taking the time to repeat myself here. I did try to warn you about this when it was happening at the time. Eh, but watcha'an all that). All that "superior know-it-all attitude would preserve their legacy forever. *cue the maniacal laughter and thunder claps*

It never occurred to them, the Alpha's, that perhaps what was needed (as I said, repeating myself here) was a buffer of sorts. A place to throw all the stuff that their precious Superboard, didn't want. And, if they shared some of that, holier-than-thou secret knowledge with the lowly lesser beings down here in no-wheresville, at least they could have showed off why they were considered to be the right stuff. Or, as 2J liked to snarl at the poor lesser beings, the special ingredient of having the right to say that "If you weren't there in 2005, then ACK!" Sorry, I can't finish that quote, because the memory of it kind of made me throw up in my mouth a little.

Nope, they felt quite justified in their desire to torture the lesser beings into leaving. So that only the GU was left standing, victorious. They probably dusted off their hands when pretty much no-one posted here anymore and then patted themselves on the back for a job well done. Going on to ASSUME that it meant never having to deal with silly newbie questions again. Only good stuff from here on in right?

Well, I don't have to keep smiling and saying I told you so, right? Do you get it now, you silly kids you? NOT so clever at all, were you. The fact that certain people felt it right to crawl back here all sheepish-like with their posts about regretting former selves and shite. You can't be so daft as to not see that what you really did was make little more than a big steaming pile of hypocrisy for everyone to take a big whiff of.

At least have the common decency to be grown up enough to admit to that at least. Arrogant little pricks. It's not just that you said cringeworthy stuff. You created a hierarchy and beheaded anyone who didn't fit into your alpha model. 2J I get, being British and all. The rest of you though...?

Never f*cking assume that anyone who actually knows isn't still watching you. Just because they don't immediately jump up and give you an immediate slap in the face with a wet fish. That doesn't mean that you get to act all cool and that now. You should at least be adult enough to understand that, right.

Whole place f*cking stinks now. You made Gorillaz not fun for so many f*cking people.

CONSEQUENCES! IT'S AN ACTUAL THING! Always has been. You don't get to wipe it away and pretend it doesn't count cause you were just a kid back then. Life should NEVER be that easy.

All Hail the Purple Cloud of Mystery.

I did say in the very first sentence of that post, that it wasn't for members. But eh, fairs enough. I'll break it down into something more easy to chew.

Alpha bullies of all ages, genders and types. Made this board not fun for quite a lot of people.

How's that?

All Hail the Purple Cloud of Mystery.

I'll be completely honest, I have no idea what the Hell G-U was or whatever. I think maybe once I casually stumbled upon it but going by what Spyder said, it was essentially a place run by the "elites" of this board. Is that correct? If so then I agree, especially regarding the hierarchy aspect and the pitiful display of regret and loneliness that followed shortly after. There was a sort of "If you're not one of us you're not important and we'll chase you away" absurd mentality floating around. But my experiences and observations come from this corpse of a board.

From what I remember, this board definitely had an established pecking order of sorts. Whoever was new or deemed "unpopular/unfit" by this self-appointed "council", they were often treated very disrespectfully and I remember witnessing a lot of nasty bullying, ad hominem attacks, and even intimidation in some cases. Some people just jumped the bandwagon and said, "Well, everyone else dislikes them, I guess I will too so I will be liked!" Really ugly stuff.

It was pretty despicable behavior that most certainly would never fly in online communities today. I blame the incompetence of the moderators and the egos of people who thought that being registered in the middle of the last decade was some sort of rite of passage or something stupid like that. In the end, with this type of idiotic and tribalistic behavior, was it any surprise that their precious G-U would crash and burn and there would be subsequent loneliness and mewling lamentations? Come on folks lol

TL;DR A small group of egotistical users from here lost their precious G-U due to them being entitled, mean-spirited and choleric and now they're sad about it and have lots of regrets. Boo-hoo.

I have to say that you said it way better than me but yeah, what Shadow said was exactly what I meant.

I say it simply because I keep seeing the occasional post from people who were deemed to be one of the "elites",in which they lessen their bad behaviour and attitude to others, by calling it cringey. Not cringey, just cruel and unnecessarily callous; I don't call telling someone to go kill themselves anything but devoid of any kind of human understanding. If you STILL, after all this time, honestly believe that it was simply childish and or cringey, then trust me, you definitely need some kind of professional help.

Stop lessening what you did by calling it childish and expecting people who were deeply effected by it to just forgive you and wave it off. Own your bullish behaviour and "holier-than-thou" attitude, and once and for all admit that you got it so very, very wrong FFS.

All Hail the Purple Cloud of Mystery.

It's funny you think mine was more well-put than yours, Spyder. I actually think yours was more well-put and more humorous too.

That aside, I think we both agree on what occurred both here and the G-U.

A horrendous hierarchy was born and it created a toxic environment of haughtiness, arrogance, and bullying. I pored over some old threads out of boredom some weeks ago and, observing what I did as a much more wise, mature, and educated person...wow. Just wow.

On numerous occasions I saw three or four users single out one user and repeatedly bash on them over and over for no good reason whatsoever wherever they went. Even the most harmless and generic post became a reason to jeer and deride them. It became rude at best and sadistic at worst. I couldn't differentiate between what was a joke even amongst the so-called "elites" themselves as when the messageboard became less visited in the early 2010s some of them started to turn on each other and began insulting one other.

Additionally, they treated this messageboard as their own little conclave for their inside-jokes and discussions that new users would get totally lost in. I suppose in their infinite wisdom they forgot that this was a public forum, not their personal playground.

A sad state of affairs.

Yeah, I s'pose. I was trying hard not to sound too bitter in the first one. I walked away four times to think about it before I hit the send button. TBH, Slugs reply was kind of a perfect example of the type of attitude towards others, that I had been talking about in the post.lol But then I half expected to get at least one of those.

Just as a side note.

Did you know: During the worst of the so-called war here, the GU had a topic called "Best flames of the OMB".

Hmm, more fun with Dick and Jane, hey?

All Hail the Purple Cloud of Mystery.
