    Well, It's Time to Go, But first...

    Over the next short while I'll round up my posting duties on CW. Since a select few moderators are being unreasonable in deciphering the difference between what's fun and not, and the few rumours I've heard of how the forums will be run won't help the cause. Disappointing it's come to this (Nixon living in the 1840's and all), but I'm off like a dead sheep in a heatwave. But first, I have a few things to get off my chest...

    marc71178 - Haha, that's all I can say. You're nearly 30, live with your parents and an accountant. Oh boy, what does one say that everybody else isn't allready thinking?
    cricketboy29 - Total gun, underrated
    dontcloseyoureyes - Will finally get the attention he's been desperately seeking since day one, really lame attempts to act cool over the last week also (Y)
    GeraintIsMyHero - Seriously, absolutely dire. Any chance of you actually learning about the game of cricket before you write articles on it? You give England a bad name with your self-indulgent crap, thinking everything revolves around your country. Open your eyes for once.
    Pasag - Dire bloke, but he's got runs on the board.
    Jungle Jumbo - Indeed
    Fraz - EPO, son, EPO.
    Pinchy81- McPinch iz a gun4lyf.
    Threes - Good kid at heart, stomach ulcers for a missus though.
    Alternative - Altoz, top bloke this one. Loves to throw around :rolleyes:, and when he does, you better watch out
    NZTailender - Top bloke
    Igor Clubshub - Legend
    ch00baka - My soul mate
    Steulen - Stooooooools, what a gun
    Mr Mxyzptlk - Arch nemesis, it's been fun. You may have won the battle, but you'll never win the war.
    Neil Pickup - Need a root or something hey, relax a bit mate.
    Langeveldt - You've had some top moments, but you'll leave this world with the knowledge that you brought "Ohhhhh jeeeze" into prominance.
    luckyeddie - You can have your site back now, unfortunately, you still won't be funny
    broncoman - What's the difference between me and you? 105 kilos and 98 IQ points. Stop posting pictures of yourself you pizza faced goon, seriously, once is way too much, poor Darryn Lockyer
    Craigos - Total gun, you're the man craigos, keep on plugging away.
    lord_of_darkness - Word
    age_master - What can I say? He's the master of age.
    Mister Wright - Piss poor excuse for a bloke, you are.
    andyc - Cameron, in all your gimpiness, you have your OK moments.
    steds - Total gun, one of the only things stopping England from turning into a land of GIMH's.
    FaaipDeOiad - Top 3 posters on this site, and I'm only saying that because he'll have me beaten with a sack full of door knobs otherwise.
    SJS - Indian version of Master Splinter.
    LongHopCassidy - Gun. Class all the way.
    Nnanden - Patto, total gun. Keep chipping away.
    superkingdave - Best poster on the site. Complete package this bloke, has all the shots in the book, and until everyone realises this, the site will still be in the dark ages.
    BoyBrumby - Worthy winner of the BOTM. Top bloke, very humorous.
    Jono - Good bloke, knows his footy, always up for a bit of banter on early 90's pop culture like Captain Planet.
    Pratyush - 'Usher. Good egg this one, will go far.
    aussie - Me buss me gun without license - hard nut.
    Samuel_Vimes - Try being less English, hey? As a prominant poster once said "Arguing with Vimes is like arguing with Pickup, only that Vimes has never seen a game of cricket"
    Jamee999 - Probably should move on from last years ashes.
    PY - Mixes shades of normalness with gimpiness.
    James - Your poor inter personal skills will always hold you back from running a perfect forum, but at least you gave it a crack. Your decision to appoint 'Those 3' as moderators will always baffle me, but you got what you wanted. By the way, how many cones were down the hatchet when you made that decision. Cheers.
    Scaly piscine - You'd think a man who has everything (chicks, ability to unjumble a scrabble rack) would be more tolerant, but here's the walking contradiction. Go for a run or something son, stop being so angry.
    roseboy64 - One day you'll get the girl
    Sudeep - Suds McDuff, King of Six-Packistan
    sledger - Sledge, had some golden moments. Will always be known for the harshest, most succinct abuse in the business. Top stuff.
    vic_orthdox - Gun bloke, best moderator by **** loads. Will go far in life, maybe even past the Golburn Valley one day.
    Cloete - Tendancy to lean towards gimpiness, but a good kid at heart, maybe.
    Robertinho - 'Tinho, came back into some great form of late, monster on the circuit.
    benchmark00 - Good looker
    burkey_1988 - Maybe this will let you achieve your dream that Clarence spoke so vividly of in his infamous thread that was closed.
    Sanz - Another bold move from the coterie IMO
    C_C - ****
    nibbs - As above
    Voltman - Very humorous guy, keen eye for sexual innuendo, keep on plugging away.
    Barney Rubble - Great bloke, almost too nice at times, but that's a good thing. G'work.
    Mr Casson - Genius. Some of the things you come up with is gold, bring back the guides I hear the fans say.
    bugssy - Very eloquent in the way you speak
    Piper - I'd go her. Keep reaching for those stars
    Adamc - (See FaaipDeOiad). Haha nah, top bloke, if not bordering on ****ish tendancies.
    Blewy - I don't know you, but I'm sure if I did know you, I wouldn't like you.
    Buddhmaster - Big bad bustling Buddhy Blackman. Will crack skulls.
    Pedro Delgado - Very funny and impressive guy, comes out with a few crackers.
    Top_Cat - cbf
    Loony BoB - Way to ruin CW. Would like to think I could share the blame, but I can't. I have on good authority, contrary to what James is saying, that you went ahead and decided to become more strict, then James came in and backed you up. Absolutely piss poor.
    Slow Love™ - Meh. White bread.
    SupaFreak2005 - Can post birds, this bloke.
    _Ed_ - Nicest bloke, dead set. Total gun, is Edmunds. In the top few posters around.
    Kweek - Maybe if you weren't dutch, hey? Nah has his moments
    Linda - Knows the score, does Philipps. An inspiration to us all. Has good hair.
    KennyD - Gives Asia a good looking face. If my girlfriend was to cheat on me with someone, I'd hope to god that someone was you.
    cameeel - Big unit. Knows what's doing, loves his footy. **** of a kid though.
    archie mac - Roo boy.
    GoT_SpIn - Worst bloke, fair dinkum. How haven't you been banned?
    Son Of Coco - Humorous
    chris.hinton - Haha what a bloke. Will always be an enigma.
    ash chaulk - Fair gun, will always get laughs no matter where he goes.
    Anna - I'm not saying we did hook up, but I'm certainly not saying we didn't...
    Hoggy31 - Was once decent, then turned into a pre-pubescent girl
    Dasa - Avatar scares me, I remember when you used to have Lesley from Super International Cricket as your avatar, bring it back son.
    Matteh - Get some sleep son, you've had a big life. Total gun though, no wonder he wasn't born in England.
    David - What a guy. Great bloke.

    I'd like to think I've had a few defining moments throughout my CW career, and here are a list of some I hold in high regard:

    • Paint Turtle
    • Winning the innaugral Biglands snooker tournament
    • Rodgiegate
    • The Pinchy banning
    • Inside Scoop with Chris.Hinton
    • Not joining Dev League


    I've also found it interesting how James promotes this site as a 'family forum', then tells people to "grow up," massive contradiction if you ask me. Also, I didn't ask people to change their avatars to the infamous monkey, although it was humorous. I didn't disagree with the banning (although I never received a warning or prior ban, unlike others), I saw it as the price I had to pay to get my point across that Towns (or whoever) has gone way OTT.

    Just to clarify, this isn't an attempt to hold the mods to ransom, I've just heard a few things about how the site will be run shortly, and decided I don't want to be apart of it. I won't rule out coming back in the future if the forums are run differently, although this is doubtful.

    This won't be my last post, but unless things remarkably improve over the next day or so (which I highly doubt), I'll be gone by the week or so, you can catch me on MSN if you're really gaggin' for it. Good work Towns, lets see if the mods have the gumption to keep this thread open, after all, if they can't handle the truth, there's a problem.

    Catch.

    Some forthright views there, benchy. Some of which I agree with (ie, your unerring accuracy in summing me up) and others I don't. But hey, I'm a big fan of a frank exchange of ideas. A BIG fan.

    An elegant mix of toilet humour and actual insight, the CW community mourns the loss of a fallen comrade.
