    Will anyone be missed more than Myrah?

    This is one of those events that you'll remember forever. Your kids will ask "Where were you when the great cheater purge of 2009 occurred?" Who did YOU lose that was dear to you?

    (RIP Vagpounder)

    Vagpounder taught me all the important things in life.

    How to survive.
    How to fight.
    How to live.
    Maybe even... how to love.

    Every war has its casualties. Every battle its costs. Good night sweet prince.

    I think this thread needs a poll but I am sure Vagpounder would dominate it.

    Vagpounder dominates things with his pole; this is the nature of Vagpounder.

    i thought it was odd that no one flipped out like that when felyn got banned

    maybe everyone just always assumed he was cheating somehow

    Idk the situation around felyn being "caught" is pretty shady, almost as shady as some of the other blatant admitting macro questers who were not caught.

    To quote cyzaine "No code is perfect". Them's the breaks.

    Been coding for a living for 12+ years now, and this is so true. I think that is the one thing that bothered me the most the entire night. GMs insisting that it was 100% fool proof. In my experience with programming nothing is 100%. Now, if they would have said its 99.9999% fool proof I would have been happy.

    Maybe it's just me, but I wanted to jovial entertainment of the bannings to continue to the boards. This thread was my gift to you Shoo.

    Losing him hurt more then it helped.

    Forever to be remembered as SoDs greatest Martyr, at least by anyone with a brain.

    RIP Felyn

    Yeah, that seemed a bit sketchy, though I suppose it's kind of like old alchemical texts. A good portion of the stuff is bullshit. Those with knowhow, see the bullshit for what it is, and ignore it. Those who can't simply don't need to know.

    Besides, anything where the source code is freely available is going to have more than one version, with different signatures, and bugs.

    I don't think you understand the definition of the word martyr.

    ngl. I did not know Felyn very well, but I will miss him. I thought he was pretty cool, even if he did not like anyone. His gear helped gear my mains before the raid loot was flowing in regularly.

    I am surprised he has not bothered to leave a farewell post of sorts.
