Epilogue – Week of April 19th

In WTF news I was given a 90-day timeout at littlerubberguys.com. Technically it was, “90 days for being a douche.”

Fair enough. I was told to stop acting like a former member “Cuttlefish.” His first timeout was one month. He was later banned because he threatened to chop someone up and stuff them in a freezer.

Was this too mean?

I said that Krangala was going a little wild and necro-bumping too much shit – which he was, and used to be discouraged. Some stuff was deleted but I’d guess I made…15 posts like that? Shit, let’s say it was 25.

Rough, biting stuff. Now I see the similarities.

It was also told to me that Krangala has some kind of weakness. I was/am unaware of any such weakness. Maybe it’s cognitive ability? Maybe on the spectrum? I don’t know. If that’s the case, then I’m really sorry – sincerely. I never saw anything like that (e.g., this post), but I could be mistaken. Again, sorry if that’s the case.

I’ll happily serve my timeout. Rules are rules. I get it. Something about it feels very vintage. I can’t count the number of times members declared, “I’m not coming around anymore because of ‘so and so.'” The situation has that kind of classic feel to me.

But the reaction feels much different. In the past I feel like the board reaction would be:

  • That’s what the ignore option is for.
  • There’s no rule that says you have to be involved in that stuff or with people you don’t like.
  • I can’t help if people have thin skin.
  • This isn’t the Sailor Moon forum, we are all grown men.

I guess things change.

“Dude, it’s on you. You should have stopped.”

I did. It was the chopped-up-stuffed-in-a-freezer-like comment below that broke the camel’s back.

Scathing, disgusting stuff. Especially on such a serious topic like Alan Mask.

Seeing it again, they reacted in the only sane way to keep the board safe.

I can’t believe Alan Mask has only been mentioned once here. If you don’t know Alan Mask, then dig through LRG. What else is there to do these days? This is a good starting place.

Let’s take a look at eBay.
My only question, “Are they damaged?”
This was listed too late. It would have been the star of Auction Watch.
Keychain. Please reread my keychain rant.
Too bad AOTW is full this week and next.

11,490 results were in my M.U.S.C.L.E. eBay search. I could stomach 2,000 listings. There were five listings worth mentioning (in any way). That’s a quarter of one-percent of the listings I saw. Yikes.

On a happier note, after last week’s huge battle we have our fourth AOTW Battle of the Champions Fatal-Four Way. The winner of this one will face-off against the previous three winners (at the bottom of the page). And next week those four will battle in the 3rd ULTIMATE AOTW Battle of the Champions. Fun stuff.

You can click each winner to see the week they won and get a little bit more information. I don’t think you’ll need it this time. These assholes speak for themselves.

Cast your vote and crown the next AOTW Battle of the Champions Fatal-Four Way winner. Here are the four previous winners:

There was sadness when our ULTIMATE AOTW Battle of the Champions Fatal-Four Way Winner #1 was no longer selling her empty box.

We thought this was the fine image of our old friend.

It was painful to consider our journey was over. We watched as she started at $250. Unable to sell it, dropped down to $160. The drops continued: $149, $145, $139, $135, $125 and finally $120…for a beat-up, empty box.

When she did stop, we knew there was a zero-percent chance it actually sold. It is an empty box. M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors see crazy things, but this sale was simply impossible. Plus, there is no feedback posted by either party.

We now have irrefutable evidence the box did not sell. It has been relisted with a $150 BIN.

Oh dear lord. Some other dope has “bought” the box and there is feedback from the buyer this time. Interesting that the seller didn’t leave feedback.

I think there is zero percent chance this belt has actually sold. It will be relisted. Pay attention sellers, this winner perfectly demonstrate the level-of-asshole it takes to be an ULTIMATE champion. She truly is the ULTIMATE AOTW Battle of the Champions Fatal-Four Way Winner #1.

Our inaugural champion has a very worthy companion.

The initial listing for the $3 figure was for $1500. The entire story was covered in AW #284. Apparently, there’s still a little more to add. The figure is STILL for sale with a $100 BIN.

This seller probably could be a repeat winner with their other listings.

An original SHA, with the head spur still attached, in the original Flesh color was sold for about $185. This seller is attempting to sell a yellow, headless version for $1,000. That is the level of commitment needed to become the 2nd ULTIMATE AOTW Battle of the Champions Winner.

Sadly, it looks like our second champion has paused their grifting efforts. I do not see the figure for sale, nor do I see any feedback.
