I remember marathoning like... 15 of his fics before stopping. Guess I just kinda lost interest or something.

Never knew he was that strange. @_@

Yeah...

I remember in an early post on this board, I mentioned how Wendy didn't have to be Stan's girlfriend anymore to continue functioning as a character. Rob shot that idea down by yelling that M&T would never get an idea 'creative' like that and that they only liked making women bitches, etc. etc.

Rob's fic series was such a big headache, especially for the last stretch of 20 stories with that whole stupid "Legion Of Extremely Pissed Off Celebrities" arc where celebrities get revenge on the town for being pwn'd, kidnap Wendy and some girls, decapitate them and graft their still-living heads onto cyborg bodies and put their headless bodies in cryo-preservation tanks as trophies, etc., thus leading to drawn-out "DRAMA!!11" over it. And then there's a whole huge war *I'm purposely blanking bits out as the story is so long and convoluted* with the celebrities and Rob irrepairably shattered the 4th wall by having it revealed to the kids that *gasp* they were CARTOONS (oh, and Wendy got her headless human body back sometime between all this and went to go be "repaired"). Big war, tons of kids die, but since they're cartoons, their friends decide to wait for them to "come back".

The dead kids, though, are all trapped in some afterlife (a bunch in Heaven, while Cartman and Craig wind up in Hell) and have to try and escape. Thus begins another convoluted, overblown arc which introduced "Ganto", some type of angel with a dark agenda (that Phoenix/LA_King seemed to really like using :P) who wanted to take over the universe or something and wanted to stop the kids. Let's fast-forward a bit to the end, though: Damien is killed off unceremoniously by Rob, having mentioned as trying to "suicide-bomb" Heaven and blowing himself to bits. The kids do end up escaping, world's saved, blabla. But here's the kicker: Cartman, saying that "South Park doesn't need him anymore", decides to stay in Hell. While obviously Rob hated Cartman, that was pretty OOC, IMO. Cartman wouldn't CARE if South Park needed him or not. But then, if you look back at Rob's stories, characterization wasn't a big thing. A bunch of characters all read the same, and Wendy (who Rob hated for being such a bitch yet wanted to use her in his agenda of "I CAN WRITE BETTER THAN M&T BECAUSE THEY ARE SEXISTS") wound up utterly lobotomized and submissive to Stan quite a bit, as the opposite would mean she'd be such a bitch. Rob also hated Stan, but would write him and Wendy together and alter them to his likes so that they'd fit together in HIS way, rather than trying to actually work with/around the "problems" in another way.

Rob's final fic he wrote, which he never finished, was "Two Sides Of The Same Coin", a Wendy/Butters one. The 'funny' thing about that is that Wendy was portrayed as the "evil bitch" that Rob claimed to hate so much, hell, even punching out Principal Victoria for letting Butters get bullied. And that apparently Wendy's so snooty that she's hated by everyone and doesn't know it :P

To say that it'd only be his later fics that were running out of steam though would be an understatement. If you look as far back to some of his fics where Stan got a rapid-aging disease because he wanted to be mature enough to kiss Wendy without vomiting, and Wendy winds up becoming a "good girl" from then because she can't stand to get Stan in any more pain, to the point where in a Halloween fic, she has to publicly humiliate herself by dressing in a dorky costume so Stan won't think she "lied to him" again about her costume and to please him.

The whole "cyborg" bit of the LXPOC section of his fics also had the disturbing undertones to it (a nude headless-yet-still-"living" female body being put in a cryo tank and kept as a sort of "trophy").

And I'm not gloating here, I'm speaking as someone who 'knew' Robdoc since late '03, however he seemed to stop considering me someone worth talking to when I stopped reviewing his fics all the time after he'd e-mail me about them. He was a member at another SP board (and the "news guy"), but cut and run from there without telling anyone. He officially completely disappeared in early '07. After Dane/NYGuy blew up the SP fanfiction board in late '06, Rob continued to stand by him and accuse those who were glad that Dane was gone of "wanting to brag".

And this is indeed related to BBS, as robdoc was a member here and that "Sexiest character thread" and all. Just wanted to give some backstory on him, too.


Wow, what a f*cked up guy.

:shock:

How did I not know there was someone on here like that? Oh yeah, I didn't really go look on the sexiest character thread. LOL..This Robdoc guy reminds me of certain other people I could mention.

But what am I getting at here? Well, in the "sexiest character thread", a bunch of us were being real sarcastic and making "Sexy" posts about characters. Rob took it a bit...far. He said something along the lines of "Alright, you perverts made me do this" and proceeded to post a porn story of him with Wendy Testaburger, where she came in from the cartoon world and was legal and...yeah. I'm surprised it didn't get deleted, but it made me go "O_O".

Oh, that thread is gone. If that story was in that thread, then it's a very good reason why that thread is gone. If it's a fan fic and is still around... it'll be gone too.

I always thought that M&T were sexists now they are much more. :P

What do Keanu Reeves, Anakin Skywalker and Kenny have in commom? They're the chosen one.

The "Sexiest character thread" went on pretty long. I remember JamezBeer kept wanting it shut down due to all the 'smut' in it (sarcasm and jokes like "I think Bugs Bunny is so hot when he eats his carrot seductively" for the most part, though like with Rob's post, things would get...weird).

It managed to survive for some time, though.

I do remember one SP smutfic that was deleted, a rather nasty one with Ms.Crabtree, by "maxmcfrankin" I believe. He was certainly a weird one. The last time I remember him being on the board was during the Follow That Egg/Trapped In The Closet flamewars: "Your god has returned", he said.

More on Robdoc: He was a real die-hard "anti Butters torture" person too, and claimed that M&T's torturing of Butters meant that they condoned people to bully and torment others in schools and society.

For all his slamming of Trey Parker as being a "misogynist", etc., Rob did leap to Emma's defense when some Parker fans slammed her...if only because they were being "SEXIST" about Parker's bride, go figure.

I don't remember if Rob posted his fics here on SPS, but he had a LOT of them. And the troubling thing is, nearly all of them connect to each other and they're really long...like movie script-length in a lot of cases.

Rob was a diehard Butters fan, and seemed to have no real tolerance for Tweek fans, as Tweek had replaced Butters (however temporarily) and was to him, "highly aggravating" and had a "shallow" characterization, among other excuses...er, "reasons". He hated Stan and Wendy for being "stereotypes" of their respective genders (and of course, the sexist card was played with the latter. Even in my most 'feministic' state, I thought Rob was taking it too far), he hated Kyle for being "too whiny", having a "horrible screamy voice", and for being a "nag", etc.

Butters was practically the ONLY character Rob seemed to like (Kenny was considered too useless, and well, Rob's thoughts on Cartman should be obvious, considering his whole anti-Butters torture attitude...). He could tolerate Stan and Wendy fans though, that is as long as they fed into his whole "MATT AND TREY ARE SEXISTS" stance and agreed with him that M&T hated women and encouraged SP fans to bully people in real-life.

Rob also talked like he, as to quote a friend of mine SnuffSnuff (who doesn't really post here anymore), "swallowed a dictionary". You'd ask him something or talk to him, and he'd make a long, drawn-out and dragged-out post about "BLABLABLA SOUTH PARK IS SEXIST THIS IS WHY THESE ARE THE REASONS CAN'T YOU SEE THIS IS WHAT THEY REALLY BELIEVE" etc.

I guess that's the debate technique he used: Use so many "big words" and drag out what you mean to say for so long that it gives your opponent a headache or leaves them dazed and confused.

I'm sure if you search his posts, there's still probably some doozies left lying around.

...so, who here remembers the debate about "Smug Alert" and acid? I recall that being a bit of a headache ("ACID ISN'T THAT BAD LOL").

I remember the E-Lection controversy and "armies" thing to an extent, though it seems my '04-05 SPS memories kind of drift in and out ;^_^

I remember being all naive and stupid when I first entered the BBS and making my "cool list" of people in a thread. I put people like Mewster/CTE, Gothdork, and LJ on there...who SEEMED okay at the time, but gah.

What'd be interesting to hear in this thread, if nobody has spoken about it already, would be some older old-school SPS stories. Anyone?

I can only think of discussions that preclude to some of the flame wars that happened and the Iraq War thread which HSXL apparently thinks I went too far on.

DAMN this site's format has changed since I last came on here. Ok before I go on with a few questions, I'm making an avatar... :wink:

Ok now that that's finished, I pretty much have a few quick questions for pretty much everyone on BBS.

1. Is KTS, O'Brien, or 3MX still on this site?

2. Have there been any serious flamewars since last summer (when I came on here a lot) or have things pretty much calmed down on here?

3. Aside from HSXL, anyone say anything about me at all recently? Yeah I know I sound insecure when I say that but I just want to get the feel for what's been going on at this site since I haven't been on in a while. It kind of changed my life in a way, but it's hard to paraphrase the reasons why.

And with the alternate names SJ used, I'm guessing one of them was "Pig-Will" or something to that effect.

KtS has not been seen here for a good while, and I must say I'm happy for that. I'm not sure, but I think he got the boot, since ol' Willy over there has banning powers these days (to my understanding). As for O'Brien, I don't think I've seen him around for a while, though I think he might be seen on AASP. As for 3MX, I think he still pops up every once in a while.

FreedomFighterXL wrote:2. Have there been any serious flamewars since last summer (when I came on here a lot) or have things pretty much calmed down on here?

It's actually been really calm and quiet lately. There have been some random flamewars, but they seem to have died out since...he...left...you know who I'm talking about, the guy from question 1. :P

I don't know...I haven't seen anything about you, so I can't say for sure. I do agree with you, though...it's f*cked, but I do feel the almost-2-and-a-half years I've been on this site have been...well, something else. I definitely would be doing something else, and I certainly wouldn't know some of the awesome people I do if it wasn't for this place, and of course, the SP fandom in general.

Hmm, that name must've been during a time I was away from here. I would've remembered that one ;^_^

I'm not surprised that "icywind" was SJ, and "Kyle The Sphinctor"...well, I definitely knew it was him (as that spun out of KTS having said something offensive about Blue Twilight in an MSN chat that I happened to be in, and SJ got real pissed and wanted revenge, SJ-style :P). It was obvious too.

During the KTSphinctor era, I remember a post by Big-Will reading "thebard12345 duplicate account banned".

Turns out "Thebard12345" was a PLK-imitation account by SJ, if what I'm hearing is right.

So add that to the SJ's aliases list.

As for O'Brien: I think he's got a new account, "O'Brien Reborn" or something. I see him sign on to MSN from time to time (when I first got it, a bunch of people added me, but most barely sign on or talk), though he doesn't really talk.

3MX is still here, last I checked.

Pfft, I'd be blown away if no one ever realized that he was icy, KTSp', and thebard.

LOL..Just so you know,you know that story he told about you on that thread you locked..Well, it was a story I heard before,maybe a little over a year ago, but I didn't hear it from BSR. Lets just say off the board, on MSN and such, there is alot of gossip.
