Subtract seven years from your current age, and that would be how old you were the last time new game systems were in the horizon. It was so long ago, and yet Cows are still just as lame today as they were back then.  This...is....SYSTEM WARS MAGAZINE!!!!

Bring Casey back!!!
#5 Posted by call_of_duty_10 (4954 posts) -

I know who Casey is,and I know that his mod privileges were revoked due to abuse of power.

What I would like to know is,what happened after that?Why did other mods/staff members start despising him?

#8 Posted by guard12 (1657 posts) -

I got such a good lol with the Casey story. :lol:

#9 Posted by trollop_scat (2653 posts) -

I knew Casey was obsessed with his stupid mod spot, the guy was here 24/7 modding hundreds of posts a day - it was truly pathetic. One day he'll realize that the gamespot staff actually did him a favor by taking his panel away and suspending him, not to mention the rest of us.

The guy needs therapy, as evidenced by his hysterical harassment of staff members who've obviously already made up their minds on him.

Casey - if you're reading this - get over it. You're done here and things will never go back to the way they were (thank God). Your behind-the-scenes begging and sniveling are beyond pathetic and I personally hope you succumb to mental psychosis as a result of your shitcanning...

Lol Casey. If anyone in this forum ever deserved the title of drama queen is him. He probably has an alt here already so just let it go Casey.

...He was elected as King of SW in 2011 after the previous King, Champ, was banned for using profane language against the main character of Bayonnetta. The current reigning King, Darklink, could not be reached for comment. LOL Awesome mag Willy, thanks for putting Pedal to Metal in there too!
#12 Posted by Frostbite24 (4534 posts) -

Am I the only one who likes Casey? My position based on the evidence of the whole on-going affair is that Staff, Jody, and Synthia threw a temper-tantrum when Casey started to use the system they created to question their motivations. I could be wrong but that's how it appears. Casey was one of the most respectful posters on here even when he was disagreeing with you..

Oh my God, the lies.

Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. As I said in the comments, the actual King of System Wars in 2011 (me) is offended by the inaccuracy. 

You'll be hearing from my people, Willy.

I don't think the guy was that obsessed with modding people.He got his priviledges stripped because he got into a weird arguement with a couple of the other former mods/admins.

I been a member of this site since 2007, but I barely posted until 2010.And casey got blamed for a lot of people's bans even though he did not ban them.

Frostbite24
It has more to do with the guy trying to micromanage SW and that he seemed to think that he owned the place. He stroke me as a control freak. Sure the rules before allowed mods to mod people out of the simplest things but Casey took it a step further to the point where it was simply ridiculous. I think that a good part of the dislike of the last system was in part due to his nitpicky and over complicated rules that made everything so confusing. A mod like that wouldn't work with the new rules so I think that's why they stripped him from his powers. But even then Casey kept on insisting and talking as if he was still a mod and as if he had powers to decide, that's kind of annoying. I think that pissed off some of the people that call the shots here. He should have let it go, frankly the decision to take his powers was appropriate in view of the forum changes, he simply was not the type of mod for a system like that.

Finding something annoying doesn't constitute a child-like reaction though, that's like the definition of being an adult or a professional. Even if Casey's actions were perceived as annoying that doesn't validate the way administrators acted. I find the actions they took to be far more reprehensible.

Could be I don't know. But still is difficult to win something on a private site which sets its own rules. It's like going to a company where you were fired and start acting like you weren't, you're gonna get kicked out eventually even if the reasons for your dismissal were not exactly right. You have to choose the fights you invest time and effort into and, this time, there's virtually nothing Casey can do so why insist so much?

Well I would take getting banned several times and told by Staff himself to stop it as a sign that fighting for this is a lost cause even more since mods are volunteers and not exactly employees. If he was unfairly treated and this was his job maybe he could reach proper authorities to try and sue or something but, as it is, complaining constantly to the people who own this site and who keep telling him to stop seems counterproductive and kind of silly.

So obviously his efforts haven't gone completely (positively) unnoticed.

Said the alt account. Otherwise how would you be able to make that claim. You've clearly not been here long enough to have encountered Casey both before and after his fall.

It's rather obviously that he is someone's alt because of his posting style.

Pretty freakin' much. That's why I stopped going to Ask The Mods. Honestly, if they haven't introduced the new ToU, I would be banned right now.

What took you so long, I had to be brought back from being banned because Casey banned me, mr goody 2 shoes. :P

I got better at trolling, yo.

That said, there were people obviously following me arounf trying to get me banned. I got reported for really stupid sh!t.

Am I the only one who likes Casey? My position based on the evidence of the whole on-going affair is that Staff, Jody, and Synthia threw a temper-tantrum when Casey started to use the system they created to question their motivations. I could be wrong but that's how it appears. Casey was one of the most respectful posters on here even when he was disagreeing with you..

He was a complete and utter douchebag if you ever had to deal with him as a moderator.

idk bro. it's been a while since casey turned over the badge, and look how upset people still get when they think about the times they got teh unfairly moded. :lol:

Frostbite24

lemmings like casey a lot

Said the alt account. Otherwise how would you be able to make that claim. You've clearly not been here long enough to have encountered Casey both before and after his fall.

It's rather obviously that he is someone's alt because of his posting style.

They Casey thing has always been kinda weird. I'm not aware of the "behind the curtain" stuff, but it seems like there was a little blunt force used regarding the staff at GS. Nothing against them, as I dunno the circumstances.

The crazy thing is I've been here since 2003 and I have been moderated more now than I did before the TOS change. I guess I lucked out in not having to deal with Casey as a moderator. Since I have a serious man-crush on you I'll take your word for it.

I liked him when he wasn't answering my moderations. But when he was, he came off as a condescending holier-than-thou prick.
