Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

A Brief History, updated for explanatory purposes only:

I was once regarded as the premier source of defensive and linebacker strategy and analysis among Steelers fans on this website.  My contributions were appreciated enough by fans of both my team and other teams to have earned me a 99 reputation score in just one season of football.  That, and about 8 bucks will buy you a movie ticket.  During the 2008 season, I was "The Professor" of Linebacker U - a thread on the Steelers messageboard that was created for the sake of discussing various topics pertaining to the linebacker position and helping others develop a more comprehensive understanding of related terms, strategy, and assignments.  Not only was the thread fun, educational, and entertaining but it had a hardnosed rock and roll atmosphere with tongue-in-cheek military undertones and an amusing Gilligan's Island theme.  It made for a nice break at the end of the day, or in the middle of it, and was alot of fun for all who participated and even those who were simply bystanders.  Cool group of guys with similar mindsets, personalities, and senses of humor as well as a shared passion for defense and the linebacker position. 

We came, we saw, we kicked azz.

Before the season was over, I became a target for a relentless barrage of troll attacks from a coalition of trolls formed by a troll Steeler fan.  Jealousy and envy can do that, and you'd have to understand the insecure nature of the people involved in this coalition to have even the remotest chance of comprehending all of the various motives behind it.  As a word of advice: don't even bother trying to figure it out.

I was eventually banned from the site as a result of my own reactions to these trolls when CBS repeatedly failed to do anything about it...and, with nothing better to do, the same trolls continued to go on attacking other members and accusing those individuals of being my aliases as well as dragging my name and personal information through the mud while spreading malicious rumors and deliberately turning good members against one another in this psychotically obsessive campaign to defame my character and reputation.   

Deceit, lies, manipulation...that list could go on, yet I ended up being the bad guy with all the labels because when CBS repeatedly failed to do anything about it I eventually lost my cool and proceeded to chuck people under the bus as a result of what I had been told, shown, and subjected to: not the least of which were repeated attacks ridiculing the recent death of my wife and mother.  But what happened in the past, stays in the past.  For those of you who were around for that nonsense and bought into it or believed a word of it then I'll pose one simple question: how many Top 1K posters on this site who contributed the level of knowledge and commitment to educating others that I did just so happen to simultaneously be all of the things that I was labeled and accused of?

Checkmate, case closed.  

A few of you probably still carry false judgments around in regards to what happened, but that's your problem - not mine - and I am ashamed of each and every one of you who ever associated anything negative with this name or my real life name, who ignored facts and reality in favor of rumors, or who cast judgment based on things that you were told...over the internet.  But I can forgive and forget.  The question is: can you?  That will be the sum of your character.   

This blog entry is only here as a one time explanation, so take what you will from it because its not up for debate or discussion.   
 
I have since received an apology from the CBS administration for their gross negligence and mishandling of the situation, but this is the first time that I have returned to this site in over a year.  It appears as though all of my old posts have been deleted and that some of my scores have been re-set to zero due to the amount of time that my account remained banned.  I certainly enjoyed providing in-depth discussions and analysis about linebackers and defense, something which was noticeably absent from the messageboard after my banishment and the dissolution of Linebacker U, but whether or not I ever return to the Steelers part of the messageboard in that capacity is going to require one of them seeking me out. 

And I think its pretty self explanatory as to why.

Go Steelers.

P.S.  My apologies do go out to those of my fellow CBS Steelers fans who were caught in the crossfire of this troll debacle, who were turned against one another by these psychos, anyone whom I personally chucked under the bus as a result of it, and especially those who at least had the set of stones to attempt to do something about it.  Yes its just a messageboard, but fans of the same team should have each others' backs regardless of the venue or medium, and a level of etiquette should exist that is not too dissimilar from the way you would conduct yourself in person.  What happened here was wholly unacceptable.

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

Let's see that lying part one more time on instant replay:

King: I have since received an apology from the CBS administration for their gross negligence and mishandling of the situation

Troll/Canuck: "Now I know you are lying - CBS NEVER apologies for their actions.  ever."


From RW Chan:

2/16/2010: SteelerKing,

I'm sorry for the poor experience you had on the site and for the less than helpful customer service you received. We always try to make the site as inviting and welcoming a place as possible and our customer service as fair and impartial as can be. Sometimes, regrettably, we fail in those regards. I'm glad that we can get another chance, in this case at least, to show that those are indeed our ideals.

So, welcome back to the community. If you need anything, be sure to ask.


But hey, just ask around.  I always lie.

Dumbsh!ts

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

Hi WardLove and any other associated troll posse members, welcome to my blog.

After I'm done squashing you with my vastly superior intellect (my knowledge and intelligence being the main reason you exploded in the first place because it was a constant reminder of your inferiority) any further comments you or your posse of troll aliases make in this thread will either be deleted or possibly result in banishments, yet again, from this website.  I'm going to prove this is you by using basic logic - something you could never quite grasp which is a big part of the reason your psychotically obsessed plight backfired on you.

Exhibit A: "bluenosecanuck" comes out of nowhere when I have no prior recollection of any interaction with that screen name to say things that are identical to what WardLove would say.  Since you don't list the Steelers as one of your favorite teams there is no other superceding nor rational explanation for why you would tag along in my shadow all the way down into my own blog as well as my post out on the Steelers messageboard.

Exhibit B: This is the real killer because this is where I nailed you in the past for your utter lack of intelligence, but after I clowned "bluenosecanuck&q
uot; in my thread you used ForLoveofBen to rate my response.  ForLoveofBen was another one of your aliases and all of that was proven before.  Also, ForLoveofBen (FLOB, I like that because it's a fitting adjective for your physical appearance) shares UNC as a favorite team - the only one that you listed on this bluenosecanuck account.  

Exhibit C: "Now I know you're lying - CBS NEVER apologizes for their actions. ever."  Accusing me of lying is textbook pathological WardLove as is the NEVER part in all capital letters.  Additionally, your comment at the very end is textbook Wardlove.  

I see you are a bit cronologically challenged also 

Once again your mind boggling stupidity has dug you into another hole you cannot possibly clamber out of.  Scroll up to the top and take note that the date this blog entry was posted was 2/13/2010.  Edited with a brief update 11/30/2010 but you aren't intelligent enough to have caught that.  Attention to details kiddo, attention to details.  Prior to 2/2010 I had not posted on this site since 1/2009.  Last time I checked an absence from 1/2009 - 2/2010 is "over a year".  Btw, in addition to being intellectually challenged how about you learn to spell chronologically correctly alright cupcake?  Atta girl. 

Lastly, this is one of several messages from RW Chan to me (copied word for word):

2/16/2010: SteelerKing,

I'm sorry for the poor experience you had on the site and for the less than helpful customer service you received. We always try to make the site as inviting and welcoming a place as possible and our customer service as fair and impartial as can be. Sometimes, regrettably, we fail in those regards. I'm glad that we can get another chance, in this case at least, to show that those are indeed our ideals.

So, welcome back to the community. If you need anything, be sure to ask.

There's an additional one he sent me as well but that's my ace in the hole and the best part is, there aint a damn thing you can do about it.  By all means though...do continue.  And say hellow to bltzburgh43 for me on your way out the door.
