The Commentary Room
Spamtar set up this thread in January 2007 as a side area to help keep other threads on topic when disputes arose; a great idea, and it often worked extremely well.
Read linearly it gives a partial narrative of the kinds of disputes people were having and how the parties involved approached resolving them. There are a lot of quotes from and links to and names of key threads around the board.
There's also great dialog there, for example as AJ's "evil? i'll show you evil!" death threat in which he promised me that he'd take the fight to my doorstep, described himself as "absolutely unafraid of wet work" and "locked and loaded", and told me that I had crossed a line and that his memory was long. You can't make stuff like this up.
