    Default What actually happened to LWS?

    I'm not sure I ever knew the actual sequence of events on that one. I quit message boards entirely starting in, I dunno, 2007, and then when I checked a couple years later it was just...gone. I honestly couldn't tell you if it still existed in 2007. I'm murky on the details.

    I do remember certain communities being spun off into their own boards (awful idea even at the time, but that's neither here nor there). But I never quite knew why LWS itself ceased to exist, what caused it, whose decision it was, basically any of that. Somebody here has to know so...tell me.

    That was TGO.

    Basically, the guy he sold it to put in a word filter for swear words, and then got rid of flames. People shit, started spamming, he started banning people, then they started registering and spamming the shit out of the board, then he got newvous and went to turn the server off or some shit and accidentally deleted the whole thing.

    Sounds like $50k well spent.

    Sucks though, LWS was a good site.

    It begs the question: how does one person fail so hard?

    It still brings me pleasure to think that he did it all single handedly, and with his own money. Niel must feel so retarded still, even after all this time.

    Well, David was like 30 something who had done an odd assortment of jobs and careers in his life with no retirement. I could see where selling his venture into internet business was the best thing he could do. Too bad he just said fuck the site and let some bastard rape the site.

    I don't like that because it is too close to my name: Neil.

    yeah he was introduced to us (the staff) as niel initially and i guess at some point TGO or he mentioned his actual name but we only started calling him niheel when the whole community came to realise he was as dumb as a bag of erect dicks, i don't know, to irritate him i guess

    if you are a basically fluent english speaker and you have engaged in conversation with other english speakers at some point in the past you know that "a bag of ________" generally means "a bag full of ________"

    i hope that very imaginative attempt at a fresh joke was worth making you look silly

    Well I think a dick bag would be connotative to the bag be manufactured of dicks but also suggest a sack to hold dicks. A bag of dicks is a bag literally full of dicks, and in Gwahir's case erect dicks. Semantics.

Also, I thought it was Niheel Patel not Niel.
    To be fair, it was partially my fault since I was the go-between. I did some server work for Niel on another site. He was looking to buy a general discussion forum, I got him in contact with TGO as i knew TGO was looking to offload LWS.

    But then Niel went crazy. I tried to stop him. He wanted to off-load Flames and the general discussion forum to another site. I convinced him to give me the Casual Discourse domain. For a brief time there was a link and a banner pointing to this domain until he went full retard and turned the site off.

    It was me, on accident. and he sperg'd the fuck out about it. "DO NOT CALL ME THAT! CALL ME NIEL!"

    Solecistic quit, qwahir quit, and I was really the only one remaining. I was feeding solecistic some info and somehow it got back to niel that I did so, so he suddenly locked me out of everything and told me I was fired

    Damn, he sounds like an emotionally unstable douche. I'd say he deserved what happened, but it sucks too much for everybody who actually posted there and liked the place.

    I wonder what would have become of LWS if niheel hadn't fucked everything up.

    It probably would have stagnated into what CD is now.

    i genuinely have no recollection of really anything about that time. i remember bits and pieces, like the language filter, but i'd forgotten that he tried to walk flames off the plank. and i had forgotten that i quit. i guess i assumed i and everyone else was fired, but yeah, it certainly makes more sense that chrissy and the rest of us quit

    there's some "lite" versions that I'll probably install first to see how they are. but the mods are around $80-100 each if I don't want to pay for them yearly.

    the piggy bank is at about $44 right now, so we're $106 short on vB 4.0.
