    Exclamation ...

    Ironica - take your time and give the net a break.

    A.J., I think it was this kind of stuff that made Iro and some others go way. I have not been a member for very long, but I have visited the site for some time as a guest, and the bickering and finger pointing are getting old. I'm starting to feel like I am back in high school again with all the petty BS going on. Iro, Emma, and others (me included) have gotten tired of the drama. I hope Iro does take some time off, and returns. You also have to remember this IS the internet, and really we as a whole are not friends in the true sense of the word. We hang out on a fan site to help pass the time, and talk about VH. Nothing more, nothing less. There are some interesting personalities here, and I have enjoyed them, but we really know nothing about each other. I am sure "IronicA's" real friends beyond the computer screen treat him just fine.

    Emma was less a part of Iro leaving than you (AJ) and anyone else who continually insisted that Iro was Emma.

    Try to look at this from Iro's perspective. He was friendly with you (AJ) and Mofo. Emma was not. She was scathing in her posts towards you (AJ) and Mofo. So to insist that Iro was Emma, is basically calling Iro:

    (a) a liar
    (b) a coward for hiding behind a fake persona to attack so called friends
    (c) an all around twat (his word)

    I, like many here, was friendly with Iro. If anything he seemed to be an all around great guy: Funny, Intelligent and above all he was a stand-up guy (in other words none of the things listed above).

    You (AJ) call him your friend, but your constant insistence that Iro was Emma proved otherwise. Don't look to Emma for the cause of Iro's departure. You (AJ) only have to look to you and your accusations to see why Iro is rightfully upset.

    I think that Emma Peel purged this site of some of the drama. Yes, she created some too. However, I agree that for a while there this place was unbearable for all the reasons that Emma eagerly campaigned against.

    If Iro is collateral damage from Emma's "assault" that would be sad because I think this place is big enough for everyone including Emma and Iro (whom I believe are not one and the same).

    Iro's left before and came back after he took some time to cool off. Well have to wait and see in this instance. But, I hope he does come back.

    I have no idea about the particulars of why Ironica is no longer a mod here. but let me just point out that there are a great many things that went on behind the scenes that you may or may not be aware of.

    I know he didn't like me returning. but i don't think he knew why I left to begin with...regardless, if you can't be a team player then it's time to move on.

    If he quit, he shouldn't have...all things right themselves in time.

    Beyond that, it would just be speculation.

    By the way, who is this butt-plug you are referring to?
    Just thought i'd ask since i'm the only mod who has returned from an extended leave of absence.

    I haven't been here long but I loved the british sense of humor and the spirited debates and conversations! I'll miss him for that.

    By the way, Emma and Iro were NOT the same person. the IP addresses indicate that it was impossible for that to be the case. unless he can travel the earth in minutes just to type a post then return back home.

    Why this was never addressed and debunked long before now is beyond me...Secondly, if he left over that then he had a pretty thin skin, and i know he was tougher than that.

    Thirdly, who gives a flying fuck what other people think when they are making baseless accusations they cannot prove?

    Interesting.

    Iro is gone? How do we know this? I'm I missing a thread of his departure?

    Emma? Could give a rats ass. Not the biggest fan of "Dry-witted, know-it-all pompus newbe's." Call it up bringing.

    Agreed. But she did handle Mofo quite capably on several occasions. I think the kids today would say he was pwn'd.

    Go ahead and scream for my head, but who the hell was Emma Peel?! How am I missing all this? I mainly read House of Music and Non-VH Discussion, and it's smooth sailing down there.

    I do know that there was some fallout with Iro and another Mod regarding how far a mod should go in moderating someone else's forum when they weren't around, and a little friction between him and the mods who weren't here as frequently.

    As for all this alter-ego stuff and "so-and-so PM'd me that Eddie's fingertaps weren't as fast after 1983, and then he went to the Links and said the same thing under another name and I'd like to report it" nonsense...eh...who cares?
