    Lol ... I wish I had @Yung-T photographic memory regarding how it all went down.

    All I remember is that SwoLy was being his usual belligerent self in a thread (can't remember the thread) ... I offered my prayers to someone about something (lol) and he went after me. The board turned on him and Clutch got wind of it. I guess he was on a short leash already and Clutch banned him from the hangout. Since then he's only posted a couple of times in the hangout.... but nothing like his old self! The ban changed him, it's as if he was castrated or something. o_O

    In a weird masochist way, I miss belligerent @SwoLy-D in the hangout!!!



    (P.S.) Lol...Just reread this thread....he posted :confused:
    .......

    Granville has an autistic son and leading an autism association.
    During d&D arguments, bobby would repeatedly mock Granville and call his son a re**rd.
    It peaked when they had a heated argument and bobby replied saying Granville deserved his "ret**ded son because of karma" roughly.

    The whole board was outraged and Clutch banned bobby after a delay, but then unbanned him only two weeks later, with bobby even blaming Granville in his "apology" post.

    This got ppl even more mad and several decided to attack Clutch, mainly by mocking his Mormonism and CrossFit (someone also threatened and doxxed clutch, but that was not condoned by anyone).

    They did this to show that a lot of posters get banned for stuff that was trivial compared to bobby's comments and in the end Clutch banned most of the involved people.

    They've since decided to not ask to be unbanned and will stay away from this board.

    Wow! How long ago did all this happen? Did Clutch ever speak about his reasoning behind letting one person get away with so much?

    That's incredibly ****ed up about Bobby. Wow. I get we all get angry when our side is attacked by others in politics, but damn man. I've been on the board about 15 years now under different monikers but never venture too much into D & D for that exact reason. Also did not know Clutch was a Mormon. Huh. The more you know.

    This was October and November 2018 iirc, Clutch said bobby has shown true remorse but I guess that's subjective in the end.

    Me and some other CF members founded a discord when we went into cryptocurrencies, it's mostly about crypto, sports+general stuff now.

    Is that the one that moes is in that some people were speaking of earlier or is that a different one?


    Hmmm...well thanks for the update. Do you remember what happened with Swol? It seems like a lot of the people I remember are no longer here for one reason or another.

    I did not know about this but it changes my opinion of this site a lot. Maybe even lurking is too much.

    Yea it's the one, although a new version without the toxic stuff and worst offenders from back then.

    No idea about Swoly sadly, I miss his emoji trains.

    I thought the same thing after reading the story. There are always two sides to every story but Yung-T's account of those events has stop me from delving further into the site than I planned to.

    They attacked Clutch and egged on Granvile to the point where he complained to the Rockets.

    Also started shitposting in GARM and NBA Dish by creating dupes and calling Clutch racist and gay.

    Yeah, they don't deserve to be back if they're bringing that garbage. They aren't victims. Bored little boys.

    There's no "they", everyone acted different and only a small minority overdid it by attacking Clutch.
    And the dupe thing was literally only el gnomo iirc.

    Several got banned or shadow-banned without attacking anyone in ill-manner or trolling, myself included.

    Both sides were at fault and I give Clutch credit for unbanning ppl if they talked to him outside of CF, but let's not act like everyone who got banned deserved it fully, being part of the discord (which is for crypto and not some war group) was sometimes enough to be in the crossfire.

    Bam, Swoly and OP are the same guy and just trying to outsmart Clutch with some perfect 4d chess moves.

    DD needs to learn from em.
