When Power Goes to the Head of a Security Guard

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

That's good enough for me. That, and your continued efforts managing the annual Prospects thread. I must have visited those over a 1000 times over the years.

I guess the writing was on the wall.

Low site traffic, an increasingly-curmudgeonly administrator who didn't even like hockey, an exodus of old-timers...

Yeah, it's a shame, but things change. Such is the way of life...

SC We are all good. It was Topper who told me you liked jaw breakers so thats why I called you a ball licker.

You seem like a decent dude so let's let it go. No need to pollute this board with old shit. :)

Perhaps he's just trying to evade his wife's prying eyes... :sly:
Bikerdude did just that. Left Central for four years because he meet a new chick and he was worried she'd stumble onto the site and read all the filth he had spewed out for the previous few years. When he finally returned he came back as Royal Dude!

BTW, Anyone that fell for his HT shtick at Central was had... he trolled them all winter!
You are right ODB, I met a woman - my wife. She gave me my first child - a daughter. Now she is 4 almost 5. You can take the Dude out of the CC but you can't take the CC out of the Dude. Chef Boi RD was always gonna come back from his hiatus, he just had to take care of some business, get married and produce a child. Wife and daughter are fully aware of Dudes little Canucks world he posts in, just sssshhhh it about the Cambie incident.

Good point Dave.

I come here and it's like I'm on another planet. OMG every page isn't crammed full with advertising! Every corner and nook and cranny is popping with some gay revenue generating advertisement! I've been on this site for a while and I've explored everywhere! I’ve yet to see a place to donate to the site! Other sites you can't make three clicks of the mouse without tripping on two messages begging for money.

Is there a way to donate to Brian? I've been doing it so long it just feels like the proper thing to do. If you're to play somewhere you should contribute. Like I said, I can’t find a way to do it!
You can donate vis PayPal here

I've always tried to maintain an ad free site. There have been a few small ones here and there. To be honest the cost to run a site like this is minimal. It's the time needed to put into it that is the biggest thing. Luckily I enjoy doing it.

Wow.

After game seven I basically tuned out the hockey world for a month, so I missed all the fireworks. Now that I've read this whole thread...

YIKES!

I was never a huge fan of Chris' posting contributions on the central, but it used to seem like his willingness to ban posters was a strength. Of course, people used to be banned for being stupid and having nothing to contribute, rather than for being witty and having too much to contribute.

Really, it's more sad than anything. He seems to have completely self-destructed emotionally.

Even his freaking out about political topics is more sad than anything. I'm pretty sure that my views are a couple shades farther left then either Chris or Per, but why would I take a political argument on a goddamn hockey talk board personally??? Part of having strong views and the balls to speak them is having a thick skin for when people disagree.

I usually stayed out of the arguments because they were so childish: mostly just shit being thrown back and forth with zero critical thought. If anything, I thought it was hillarious that the most intelligent Canucks board (in my opinion at the time; no disrespect to those on the corner) took on the worst faults of Calpuke as soon as politics were mentioned. Primates flinging shit. But that's all the more reason why no sane person would ever take it seriously. To take it as seriously as Chris did??? That dude must have more problems than Royal Dude's troll alter ego.

It's sad. I feel sorry for the guy. I really do.

I can't believe it was just the stuff on the board that did this. It provides for us a window into the guy's life, but we certainly don't see everything that contributes to his emotional well-being. He never came across as an overly happy person to begin with. I would think that what everyone saw online is more a product of other circumstances.

It sucks for us because we lost something we valued, and some of us lost some cash to boot, but in the end its another human being who is going through some sort of personal turmoil. So, with an extra day for me to think about it, i hope the guy is able to overcome whatever demons he is battling.

At least the rest of us have this site which will allow us to do what we come here to do.

Thanks for the being here Canucks Corner.

None of us lost any money, well except for those in the cfl pool and we'll chock that up to Darwin.

I donated because I felt like it. I spent a lot of time on that board and it provided great entertainment. Flippin' The Gimp a few bucks along the way was little to pay for the laughs that place provided.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Must've been a long time ago, I've long since learned the value of debating your online personality.

Agreed. We got our community supporter badges and extra special inboxes and beyond that there were no promises.
