    I remember Greybeard, but I don't know what happened to him. I have wondered this often, myself. He was a great moderator and I liked having him around, though I'll never understand his love for Paladins.

    There was a difference in opinion between the Admins and this forum as to the legitimacy of ATMA (and a few things between Greybeard and the Admins). Long story short, mean things were said, people were banned and people left. I believe Greybeard left on his own volition.

    If you want a detailed synapsis, I'm sure you can pm one of the more veteran posters and they'll explain it. But this saga is behind the SPF now.

    The admins took the mod postion away from him after he refused to budge on the ATMA issue IIRC. After that he left here for good .... I think he still posts at the other place from time to time.

    No no no, you've got it all wrong....

    What really happened was that AE was getting jealous of Greybeard so he had him strung up with barbed wire and he got people to hurl great big rocks at poor old Greybeard. He eventually let him down on one condition, that AE was to become the new SPF Mod. :wink: :D

    Close. Actually Greybeard was confronted with a great test; he had to row out into the Pacific Ocean by himself, in a rubber dinghy, with nothing but a case of Canadian beer and a stack of ethereal winged harpoons, and slay the Giant Squid to secure the safety of the SPF.

    He failed in his quest, the squid went on yet another inky rampage, the forum crashed, and we lost everything. When the smoke cleared Greybeard was gone.

    There are those who say you can still see his dinghy on the horizon on moonlit nights . . . especially after a case of Canadian beer.

    No, but it is the reason why this place is nothing like it used to be... :innocent:

    Yes as much as I love this place, it’s not even a shade of what it used to be.



    Anyway, let’s not get too deep into this as it is still potentially a touchy subject.

    I have no idea what this place used to be like as I am still and probably always will be a noob. However, I think it kicks some serious behind, as I had almost given up on D2 as I was getting fed up with things about that game that I didn't really understand until I came here. And if greybeard was anti-ATMA or something, I say good riddance, as it has saved me a ton of headaches and is unbelieveable. AE does a good job as far as I am concerned.

    MY 2 cents anyways.

    I'll agree and go no further but to say that I have been a little "touched" off lately... I want everyone here to remember this place is about integrity, and this whole ingnorance is bliss thing is not in the spirit of the SPF.

    edit: GREYBEARD was NOT anti-Atma, he was our only champion to the powers that be when they wanted to ban Atma all together.

    Yes, well I am a little amazed at some of the threads that have been appearing, and the what appears to be the stance. I also will go no further.



    Greybeard was the SPF Knight, riding against the other admins in his Shining Cracked Sash of the Squid. Seriously, he made a stand for the SPF.



    Anyways. Nuff said.

    Ok, if he wasn't anti-atma, he is good in my book, but I still say that its the best forum I have found and I'll leave it at that.
