Adz on IRC a few weeks ago: "Just so you know, I will be taking down voidbox"

I censored out the 5 million flame words from the above sentence, too. Last month's uber-spamming of the voidbox guestbook and comments by yours truly is enough reason for me to keep picking on him.

finch says:

Let me tell you the full story,

Before I used "fifteen" flame words and said that I was going to take the VB website down I was abused by m1n1mal himself.

After days of "happy" talking and "buttering" he made me trust him. I thought I had rebuilt a friendship...then he talked me through using a firewall in mIRC. I thought it was cool, he gave the ip and everything. When I did it I found my computer being controlled by him (because I was connected to his IP). He used a bot to send silly messages on my nickname in the #nuance channel. I was banned from this channel originally but he told me he was getting me unbanned - I thanked him for this not knowing he was tricking me. Then he also sent the shutdown command to my computer as well as a bot which deleted my mIRC uninstall file.

When I re-entered the voidbox channel he was laughing out loud - saying it was payback! This led me to become infuriated and I flamed him and threatened to mess the VB website up (although I do not intend to do this - nor do I know how to do it)

So there you go - he started by hacking into my computer, and I just got a little angry. I know m1n1mal is going to go over every word I have just written and point out all of the mistakes - but....there you go!

...and I don't care about what people say about my submission for SSC08 - I personally love my screen and find it works for me everyday - I would be a mad man if I took all the criticism.

And I'm done with stuff like that, I just was ticked off by all the spam and threats.

I informed you that the ddos was just a little test with a new tool that I had acquired. I only let the script last a few seconds - so you just got a couple of extra hits.

I actually did not send the hundreds of spam across to VB - you did admit that it was a spam bot and that you'd set up a spam 'captcher' for it.

Wow adz, I bow before your supreme memory.

"Couple extra hits"
Wut? You yourself said on IRC, and i quote, "Did you notice the thousands of hits to VB ...?" So I guess you were lying then or you're lying now? Not that it was a heroic attempt to smack me in the face, but it just shows your lack of sanity.

"I actually did not send the hundreds of spam across to VB"

Learn to read. I only admitted about the viagra ads, not you posing as some loser trying to see if the comments allowed HTML. I also have IP logs matching your IP for about 15-20 of those. Plus the stupid guestbook flames. And of course when you said on IRC that "I learned how to talk and ask questions" from that...

"you did admit that it was a spam bot and that you'd set up a spam 'captcher' for it.

It's called a captcha.

"m1n1mal and his team in #voidbox decided to make scripts and auto ban me - when I was idle - not doing anything."

So you're saying we/I are not justified for "joking about you"? Seriously? Do you really think we have the capacity to take anything you say seriously now? For all I know this is all a coverup and you're plotting something else now.

adz & mini don't like each other.

Fact is I hate the illness not the person

mini was gracious enough to put together a solid system and host the contest elsewhere.

I acknowledge this - mini has a lot of skill and is smarter than myself - I have said this to him myself.

most frequent users of this site know of adz's shenanigans and frown upon them.

On the SSC08 VB website I did not do anything stupid. I simply uploaded my submission for the contest - I didn't try and do anything daft. So you can't have witnessed my "shenanigans" recently!

there exists a considerable amount of users who witness adz's shenanigans on a daily basis, or who are the target. (#nuance, #voidbox, gsm)

For your information I am currently banned from #nuance and have been for a considerable amount of time - so that makes me coming into the channel and messing around impossible.

mini, and others included in the above group, have the right to express their disdain with adz however they please, and wherever his actions or retaliations occur.

Yes I agree - but on this particular occasion there has been no such action or retaliation - I uploaded a shot to the website and he decided to play more jokes.

I have been trying to become a part of this community but it seems it isn't an open one - when a user joins and has potential to be good at this stuff, then a lot people try and cause havoc. Interesting to know there haven't been any new members who have been welcomed gracefully and taken in arms - Nevezen for instance...

What? are you nuts? The community HATES you, but it's obvious that that can't get past your 4 feet thick concrete cranial bones. And sorry raoul, but he posted on his DA journal about his shot and has 5 million devtarts voting for him - not that I'm against raoul's shot, but make your own conclusions about that.

What in the world is that supposed to mean? I dont really wanna get involved with this nonsense between the two of you'll, but this is addressed to me. I havent put up any journals on DA since the beginning of the year. There are quite a few respected members from here, PJDark, Pepi, Novoo, Excess who watch me there, and you can confirm with them.

I did put in a note on the screenshot submission asking people to give me a vote if they liked it, but everybody has done the same, Thomax, Nitzua, Noka, Pepi, et all. And I put in that note after seeing everybody else's subs, because I didnt wanna come in last :P

Thief? o.O

Care to expand on that Kinetx. Or is this just all that hate thats been building up iniside of ya speaking, cos I dont really give two hoots what petty people like you think, and have told ya the same too ;)

For the record, I never steal. There were a couple of times when I first joined this place and made a coupla nubby winamp skins on my own based on foobar configs from Pepis screenys. Only to find out later that there were already winamp skins for the same too. Why is it your concern anyhow? I dont see the people who made those amp skins complaining, just people like you ;)

Why are you making SSC08 about me anyway? Is it not your intention to improve Custo with SSC08 or or is it just to fulfill some petty, indiviual agenda? Maybe if certain people improved their attitude to be more like Pepijn, Novoo, PJ and Max, there would be more people responding to you'll from DA. Dont blame me if you'll like to be elitist pigs and then crib

Im not going to drag this out into a stupid b1tchfest like the last time, so, Im out. Enjoy yourself in this thread Kinetx.

3. novoo
4. Max
5. Pepijn
6. Thomax

(was gonna say 7. mini-man, but I'm not gonna :P)

that's.. 21 loves from random deviantart people, or 34 if you count the likes. Whut?

16. Kareem/kinetx
17. Split/andrew

that's over 50% of everyday well-known custo.org goers...your elitist argument kinda falls apart if you see the fact that none, zilch, zero of the peeps who lurved on your shot lurved on anyone else's shot, like nitzua. It's fine if they love your shot, but why isn't the likes/loves going anywhere else for the sake of fairplay? It's so uneven.

Why? Maybe because Im more a people person than some and get along well with people on DA. Why have I got less in comparison from people on custo? Maybe because there's an absurd amount of hatred among a certain group of people, who wont move on. ;)

Mini, if you wanna see unfair and if you want me to make a journal asking people to vote for me also pointing out that you guys think DA people have no taste, just ask. I'd be glad and happy to oblige. Dont blame me if I win then, because I certainly dont even deserve to be in top 5.

Um no, it's kinda like with adz - if you have a bad reputation, you have to earn a good one or suffer. Even if what you say is true and you've been framed, that doesn't change the fact that some people don't like your style and will not like you getting 500 deviantart folks loving it into 4th place.

Pure pettishness (Im lovin that word today). Akkas VS was brilliant, but the original inspiration remains the winamp skin by Blueslaad. When Tosta and me made it, we did it on our own without using his VS. So we credited Blueslaads awesome skin but also mentioned all the great screenshots that were made based on it. There wasn't just Akkas that I had seen before, but Calibans and NickDCs too.

Please take a look at the right hand side of the screen here:
Or maybe that slipped your attention? ^^

winners, pm me on custo with your size, address, and the shirt you want:



congrats again :D

Lessons learned:

-custo sucks my balls.

-flickr sucks my balls

-gsm doesn't :-D

-miniman's awesome

-close the submission window to a day or two. with such a wide time frame, the later submissions don't get nearly as much exposure as the earlier ones

-don't hold the contest off-site, where no prior registration is required. it will only bring drama
