[i][quote]It's been said that the Flood got the best of the war. We also got the worst. On #Gaming, the Desticles dug their 12 year old heels into the muck of that forum hellhole and dared #Offtopic to come in after them. So we did, only to be met with the month after month of banned accounts, shrieking autistic children, and other sights that haunt me to this day. Cut off and for all we knew abandoned by our superiors, our only hope was Frank Woods, our forum commander. Without his iron will, none of us would have come out of that mess with our sanity, or our lives. When his death came, I hope it was quick. He earned that much... [/quote][/i] Gather round children gather round! Who was Frank Woods you ask? One of the most glorious Offtopic users to exist. Dating back to the first Desticle wars of 2014ish, Frank Woods was paramount in the charge against the Desticle attack on #Gaming. I’m sure the older generation of #Gaming users will tell you as much, that it was completely flooded with posts relating to Destiny made by kids who didn’t know how to navigate forums. So you ask, why does this matter? I’ll get to that in a second. He started off by making a post politely telling new users that #Gaming was not for Destiny related topics. But an unknown mod decided to change the location of his post to #Community, where our good old “friendly” community manager Deej hung out. Now Deej FREAKED OUT when he saw the post and his response, well, I posted it up top so you decide what you think about that. He followed up by banning Frank Woods. Anyways tl;dr the moral of the story is as follows: >Frank Woods makes a post politely directing people to #Destiny for Destiny related topics >Mod moves post to #Community >Deej get mad >Deej makes comment and bans Frank Woods Rest In Peace Frank, your memory lives on.
