I'm gonna go ahead and confess that I have no idea what either of you are talking about. First guess would Nuclear's shitposting, but that is so far from what I think would improve the forum that the notion borders on offensive.

Good guess. At the end of the day, despite the fact that he did make some real contributions to the forum eventually, I think that and sockpuppets are what most folks remember about Valaggar. Even when he was being insightful, he seemed to be fighting a losing battle of wills with his juvenile side.

Quote
Guys like Valaggar and Jaychant just seem young and a bit obnoxious. Probably more of a stage than anything. I know I went through that stage when I first discovered the net and (hopefully) am a bit wiser for it.

Didn't we all? I can remember being an obnoxious twit for a short while back on my first forum (way back in the heady days when Prodigy was one of the big 3 internet providers, and people still referred to them as BBSes). I was probably Val's age or younger back then, but I've known 30 and 40 year old folks who go through that phase when they first discover message boards, too.

Quote
Val was/is an intelligent, passionate fan and we are poorer in his absence. I've heard from him lately and all I'll say is that I think he should be left alone until he returns on his own, if ever.

Considering the circumstances under which he left, I'd have to say that's probably the best idea. While I have to say that things have been quieter lately, and much fewer interesting topics pop up, Val definitely needed to find the right state of mind for himself. Once he does, and if he wants to come back, I'd be happy to see him too.

I was just thinking how the Lance Vader Utwig voice pack was a good idea, despite the controversy Valaggar caused when he e-mailed TFB to get them to make it official.

I tried to e-stalk him once because I missed him, but he never responded to any of the messages I sent him.  I found him on several sites.  Forget if I ever got his email.
