19.03.2004 – Friday 19 March – Tired & Banned
- • Friday is my worst day at uni, I’m not sure why. There was no way I could stand two hours of Guido’s Relational Database lecture without notes – I could feel it sucking knowledge out of me rather than the other way around, so I went down the labs for the second hour. If they put notes online more than
- • Once in the labs, I checked my email, and found this log (names changed to protect the evil and spelling fixed to protect readers) from what used to be my favourite channel:
[07:21] <NoteOP> Note 6 from ChanOP –– Sent Thu Mar 18 21:32:23 2004 AWST
[07:21] <NoteOP> evil!...@... deleted you from #channel
[07:21] <NoteOP> Note 7 from ^evil –– Sent Thu Mar 18 21:41:31 2004 AWST
[07:21] <NoteOP> I deleted your access yet again. This time you don't need to lie to get it back. I noteoped the OPs. You know that I don't want you here. Please go and leave the channel the way it was before you came. Thanks. That is the decent thing to do, and you know it.
[07:22] <victim> back
[07:22] <victim> evil what is the problem? I have never lied at all – I don't know what your problem is with me?
[07:23] <@random> –_^?
[07:23] <victim> random, evil has deleted my access again, I have no idea what I have done wrong, or why she dislikes me – she sent me a note and asked me to leave the channel.
[07:24] <@random> hmmmmmmm
[07:26] <@random> I wouldn't know anything about it, myself. Wasn't even here.
[07:26] <victim> neither was I
[07:26] <victim> I went to bed at 11 my time, I was deleted and sent the notes at 12:30 and 12:45
[07:26] <@random> Curious. . .
[07:57] <bot> any hot bots wanna chat?
[08:01] * evilAway is now known as ^evil
[08:01] <@evil> Do you deny victim that you lied to anon to get your access back when I deleted you last time?
[08:01] <@evil> And you may not appeal to my OPs here to stay. i asked you politely to leave.
[08:02] <@evil> If I were in a channel and the owner asked me to leave, I would leave.
[08:02] <@evil> Your problem is that you, of all people, do not accept that I own this channel.
[08:03] <victim> I did not lie to anon at all.
[08:03] <victim> of course I do.
[08:03] <victim> I am on the phone brb.
[08:03] <@evil> and also, no way would I have to be asked in the first place. I should not have had to do that.
[08:06] <@evil> You told thei that I deleted you. You got him to try to get your access back. Thei failed. You messaged anon (while you were swimming) and asked him why he deleted you. anon gave you the access back. You took it, fast. I deleted you again when I found out that you got it from anon. I then gave in and gave it back anyway.
[08:07] <@evil> I am still asking you to leave.
[08:11] <victim> actually this is the truth about what happened. I assumed you deleted me (as I didn’t have noteondel on). I didn't know why because as far as I know I have never done anything to you. I asked thei if he knew why. He pointed out I didn't know that it was you that did it – I said only other person could have been anon.
[08:11] <victim> so next morning I msged anon just after I had changed my nickname, and asked him if he had deleted me.
[08:11] <victim> then went swimming and then to uni.
[08:12] <@evil> That is not true.
[08:12] <victim> when I got back, he had left a msg saying of course not, and that he was adding it back. I had two noteops
[08:12] <victim> one from anon adding me back, and one from you adding me back.
[08:12] <victim> I had no idea what happened with anon or you or whatever.
[08:12] <victim> that is exactly true – I have logs of everything with everyone
[08:13] <@evil> You were talking to thei while I was talking to him about me deleting you. That is all more lies.
[08:13] <victim> I then put noteondel on so I would know who deleted me from then on.
[08:13] <victim> actually no, I had no idea he was talking to you at all.
[08:13] <victim> ask him.
[08:13] <@evil> it is beside the point, too, as you got it back, didn't you.
[08:14] <victim> I have no idea what your problem is with me, evil.... I don't have anything against you, afaik you have just turned around and assumed all this stuff about me, and decided you dislike me
[08:14] <victim> I have not ever ever lied, or done any of this stuff you are saying
[08:15] <victim> I thought you were a nice person and this channel was wonderful, and I have made a lot of friends here
[08:15] <@evil> Well if a channel owner dislikes you and asks you to leave, what is the decent thing to do?
[08:15] <victim> errr I figured you would get over it if I just kept on being nice, considering I have done nothing to trigger it
[08:15] <@evil> I am not going to argue about that.
[08:16] <victim> and unfortunately I like the other people here, chat a lot here (which I don't do elsewhere) and thought that most people here get on well with me too
[08:16] <victim> I don't know why you are being so unreasonable and hate-filled towards me, when I have never done anything against you or the channel
[08:16] <victim> it’s so opposite what I thought was your character
[08:16] <@evil> I disagree with that totally.
[08:17] <@evil> so I have said all I am going to.
[08:20] <@evil> I can't ask you any nicer to leave. Do you accept that I own this channel?
[08:21] <victim> ok evil, I will leave the channel, as per your request. I will come back when you aren't here, to say goodbye to the nice people I have met.
[08:21] <@evil> No, you shall not!!!!!!!!
[08:21] <victim> you certainly are a lot different person than I thought you were.
[08:21] <@evil> You may not come back.
[08:21] <@evil> and destroy things here
[08:21] <victim> I guess the truth comes out eventually, so you will reap what you are sowing.
[08:21] <@evil> Well stay out of my channel then. I am no fool.
[08:22] <victim> I have done nothing wrong evil
[08:22] <victim> you are being unfair and unreasonable.
[08:22] <victim> but so be it.
[08:22] <@evil> You may whisper your goodbyes. You have enough sense to find them.
[08:22] <victim> goodbye.
It seems the owner is a paranoid schizophrenic. The sad thing is that she used to be a good friend. I joined and tried to find out what was going on, but after an argument, was banned. She then proceeded to ban half a dozen others, who were also innocent victims.

- I don't understand a word of what's going on, so I think I am best qualified to explain it to your readers.
* NoteOP is pregnant with evil's baby and is also secretly having an affair with Roger, who later died in a tractor accident.
* random is actually the infamous Raymond. Before you start carrying on like the magistrate about proof blah blah, can I just point out that he PUT A FULLSTOP AT THE END OF HIS LINE.
* evil obviously has a livejournal, as he (she? stay tuned for this twist in a future installment) manages to give the impression that each line they say is bad nihlistic poetry.
* victim may or may not be Ned himself, we never get to see his face. My running theory is that it is in fact Ned's long lost twin, his face scarred in an explosion at a swimming pool warehouse.
