I will like to congratulate ethang5 on both his return to DA and way he calls others out.

Back when everyone was bandwagon lynching him off of this site, I said explicitly (I can't be bothered to find proof, dig to the time and you'll see) that while he has been toxic, he does it to the right people for the right reasons at all times.

From Analgesic.Spectre AKA zarroette, to disgusted, to Willows, to Wylted all the way through to Bench. I have found that I have very common enemies with this guy because he picks on toxic trolls and exposes them, stating matter of fact what they are.

I made this thread to honestly congratulate him and say I am happy he returned when Virtuoso was made head mod and that he is a good non-mod troll-handler for the Religion subforum.

I don't care if I get told off for congratulating him.

Being a recent member of this enclave [abut a week], I have no knowledge of the history you describe, but, I have already had engagement with ethang5, both in agreement and disagreement. I've found his style inventive, probing, and direct. I have never been the target of his ire, and I suppose that is because I have not given cause, so it appears he is consistent with with how he is treated. Although I do not ascribe to that tactic, I cannot criticize hitting back when hit. So, this isn't a hit job on you, either. Congrats to both of you.

I haven't been here long but he's a narcissistic troll who can't post without personally attacking other posters.

Thank you sir. Very few understand what either of us do, but that is the price of greatness.

Be well.

I've been getting the same vibe!

I mean, what sort of noob comes on to the board already obsessed with me?

He something of a cherry picker though.

Give him ten points to consider and he will probably only respond to the one or two that he can twist in his favour.

Nonetheless, it's entertaining debating with Mr Ethan.

Yet I have people who say my style of addressing every point is exasperating. But if I miss one of your arguments, just point it out to me and I will eviscerate it promptly.

But as always, if you dodge my questions, I will similarly dismiss yours.

Nonetheless, it's entertaining debating with Mr Ethan.
Thanks. Debate with you is fun too, but only when you're not doing the Zed the Nihilist bit. That's lame.

Maybe he's really a noob and you've just got that magnetic a personality? And maybe just maybe, that awful Ragnar didn't just ban him again...

Both of them are forum-only debaters. They mean in forum conflict.

I haven't observed ethang5 enough to verify what you are saying. Nevertheless, I think ethang5 is most likely an extraordinary human being. After all, he gave me a compliment one time. His greatness is obvious.

It was well deserved. You were humorous and constructive when you used to post more. I hope this means your participation is about to increase.

How is Aristotle?

Wow! You even remember my cat. That is true greatness. Aristotle is doing well. Thank you for asking.

You were that rare breed on internet forums, intelligent, humorous, and emotionally stable, all make you easy to remember.

Now my greatness is even more obvious!

I've been a fan of Ethang since the old days, although the battle between him and the psycho was exhausting I've grown to love his troll azz kicking style. It allows the rest of us average folk to kick back and relax. He's the forums garbage man lol.

It's a lowly job Etrnl, but someone has to do it.

I noticed you got some of our more colorless trolls in the .jpg too, (the gray goo in the green trash bin)

Hope the fame doesn't go to their heads.

Thanks Supa. Ditto to you.

(If anyone is wondering, I am aware that there are plenty of Ethan haters out there.)

Hi everyone.

Now that 

Ramshitu
Harikrish
Wylted
Disgusted
Brother D. Thomas, and
Willows

Have been dusted off, the board has little use for a trashman anymore. (Though they still need to figure out how to stop Willows from embarrassing them. But it seems they think its easier to pretend his sock isn't him, than face the embarrassment that they don't know how to keep him off)

So Ethan is going to gunsling in the more western regions. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here.

If any of you see me somewhere else on the net, say hi.
