In the last days I’ve learned some very interesting stuff about this blog called ‘The mare’s Nest’ and who’s behind it. It’s very funny how the truth never eludes the community, or the truth seekers in most cases.
I’ve had a little suspicion on who it might be, or at least on who it might be involved with it. Turns out I was right. I talked to Cororon last night in PM, as we did back at the Mayday incident where we discussed about how WaffenThinMint, one of the SimsForums admins may be involved with this blog and about how she felt backstabbed by him. Word got out on Sims Forums about her suspicions about WTM being them and we got this reply from TMN:
Of course, I fell for it this time as I didn’t know much about what’s been going on and haven’t been following WTM around the community enough to spot and compare the similarities.
Alright, you know what happened after Cor made this post?
You guessed right. She was banned for a month, for ‘stirring drama’.
I’m sorry to have to do this guys: that I am posting about this in the regulars section lets you know that I’m not wanting this getting out any further among prying eyes.
Cororon has been removed from the moderator list and has been banned from Sims Forums for a month, by which time I hope she’s calmed down.
I came in today and discovered that Cororon, who has not been posting at all here regularly as it is, came in and posted another long winded piece about another battle she is having with an outside blog that has nothing to do with Sims Forums.
I for one have had quite enough of this, and I suspect from what some others said when I was away they are also sick to death of frivilous bickering around here.
We have just gained a great new member in Caspin who has started a very good legacy that may attract others to join. Then today I find one of the forum’s own moderators once again wanting to start up all the same old melodrama that I got tired enough of last time trying to keep the peace over to decide to walk. What sort of message does that give out about the place to people looking in from outside thinking of joining?
I like Cororon, she’s been one of the mainstays of this place as far as I can tell, but right now she’s far more trouble than she’s worth. We can’t afford to scare off any new people with this sort of idiotic display. I’m sorry that it’s come to this, but really she’s old enough to know better. Sims Forums is not a tavern brawl.
Actually, Minty’s ego was hurt big time and he snapped. Because Cor also made another post where she mentioned something about how one is able to spot 2 accounts on 1 IP address. That happened after she showed me this screenshot. (Apparently, ‘Song of the Dead Pest’ was TMN’s account that they used for PM’s and Minty had the same IP as them)
I don’t know much about this particular account(but I trust Cororon for being a member on SF for such a long time), but from my OWN experience, it seemed fishy to me how TMN had their heads burried so deep into Minty’s ass, that each time I had the guts to ‘provoke‘ him, they were blogging about it, tearing me down. Funny, right? 🙂 Wrong.
One day, I made this one post in the regulars board, away from TMN’s eyes, where I let out the way I was feeling:
Should I have to repeat myself that I wasn’t blaming anyone?
Several days later, Minty ‘resignated’ in public:
Here is the funny part about this post: He’s been the one stirring THE drama, then several days later, he went to post about it. It was a sensational topic! Of course, just like he mentioned me and Cor in his post, so did TMN! WE were the ones to blame. The funnier part that I found now is that he claims we are blaming what an outside blog(aka himself) has been saying about the place. And because the TWO of us decided to leave, he also left. Because, ‘he can’t afford to lose members’, being so few and probably me, by saying the place is dead ticked him off greatly. Not my intention, really. But I was blunt.
He hasn’t been seen for over 1 month, before he decided to come back.
What should I say? Now ‘his’ forum is officially dead, with only 2 ‘somewhat’ active members: Ollie and Caspin(who is new). The other members on Simpletons who had accounts there also said they will quit visiting his forum and his blog altogether.
In all honesty? I wasn’t fond of Minty from the beginning. I didn’t know who he was and I had no idea he was an admin until several weeks later, when my eye slipped on his ‘Administrator’ status.
Now looking back and investigating, both the Sims Forums and his blog, I found some similarities between his writing style/TMN’s writing style, cuss words, overall opinions, music tastes, etc. WTM/TMN wanted some recognition that he didn’t get from us, or me at least. He has a spiteful hate for my name right now and it showed with his last cuss in my direction.
To WTM/TMN: Did you think that running an anonymous blog will give you the right to step on people, hurt them and tear them down to your liking? Your biggest mistake here is blaming shit on Cororon who had mod privileges on SimsForums and could track you down easily, even if you denied it. I thought your blog was funny at first, but right now you became a real pain, as its popularity among the community got into your head. You know what’s even more pathetic? That each time you feel cornered, you always throw in the same line – ‘We’re not worth it, don’t take us seriously!’. You want us not to care, but you DO care. You’re a dedicated dramaqueen. You hide under a blog name that you deem ‘anonymous’ and point out all the trolls, ‘bumnuggets’, idiots and dramallamas in the sims community.
…But you know what? You’re a bigger troll than all the trolls on the EA forums combined!
You had trolled and bullied a lot of people in the community, stirred crap and attacked many who didn’t deserve it and had your fun from behind a screen. ):<
Here is one good example(that very likely didn’t get too much attention, but it matters to me):
:Minty and Jimmysnan:
One of the people who were targeted by TMN/WTM was Jimmysnan, an EA forum user, whom on my very few encounters I found to be a rather nice person.
Several months later, she gifted me an item.
I was really angered at this one TMN post about her. And not to mention WaffenThinMint’s intervention in that particular topic, attacking her and claiming that she was indeed trying to cause drama, even though, apart from The mare;s comments to her posts, there was no solid proof against her.
And shortly after, this post showed up on SimsForums:
What a coincidence, eh? Not only WTM deleted her account, along with other hundreds others with no posts, but also made a post about it and what she apparently does on the EA forums, shortly after that one TMN post where she gets picked on.
And the list can be long. v.v I just don’t spend enough time on the EA forums, but apparently lots of harm has been done to innocent users, who give a damn about other’s opinions. You can’t control that, TMN, and you know it, yet you still go on.
There isn’t more than I can say on this matter, I said my piece and I’m not going to repeat what AE said in her blog this morning, although I 100% agree with her. I’m also not going to quote the morsel of information that Cor sent me last night.
I know AE got IP banned from SF for posting that in her blog and I will very likely end up with a ban too for this entry. 😀 I don’t care, seriously, because that won’t stop me from writing on my blog.
Have a nice life! 😉
