He wouldn't be banned just for being annoying.

You have to do something bad like threaten a fellow poster with violence or post racist/homophobic materials (irony excepted).

That kind of thing.

Being a boring git is not a bannable offence.

He was demoted, yeah. It was stupid to have made him a mod in the first place. He can post here anytime but obviously chooses not to.

He was banned for a day or two. Tom tried to strip him of his modding powers, only to find out he couldn't do it, then he panicked and banned him. It took a few days to find a way to restore his account without giving him his modding powers back. Brad was using another account meanwhile.

I have no idea how it all begun. Did Brad go crazy or something? Was he abusing his powers?

I think Tom overreacted; he could be quite volatile. Brad had a way of doing that to people. I didn't realise or had forgotten Brad was actually (briefly) banned. That was something of an anomaly for this forum. It wouldn't happen now.

Bradavon was banned from commenting on DVD Times - now known as The Digital Fix. His main habit to post nonsense - frequently showing off his wilful ignorance.

I remember driving Brad up the wall one time where he went absolutely bat-shit crazy, but sadly all evidence of that exchange was destroyed by a mod once Brad came back to his senses * (relative senses of course, this being Brad and all).

i wonder if he still lurks here. he enraged me once so much (getting personal by bringing my kids into it) i lost all sense of reason and was seriously on the verge of heading to Bath to sort it face to face :rage: (i had his addy from previous trades) i calmed down eventually though.

I am always weary when I do not feed them enough. They give me that look. I think if they were bigger .....

I think I've given up on the kung Fu Cinema forum for good. the layout is poor, the search crap and most of the posts are just redundant nonsense from Golden Dragon.

I miss Falkor. At least he had some ace lobby cards to show off.

Falkor was mad as a bag of spiders, but he had a lot of great info and materials to share. It was a shame he threw in the towel. I think most of the useful members left KFC somewhere along the line... just like Bullets! :D

I never really got why so many left bullets for good...was there a big time gap between the old and new forums?

Combination of factors, I guess; HK-cinema going down the drain, and not everyone found the same kind of love for Korean and Japanese cinema, which means there would simply be less to discuss.

IMHO, I also feel the forum got too big when it comes to sub-sectors, so before we basically just had the 'anything goes' for TV, music, world events, games, etc.... So that part of the forum was always very active, but now we have a bunch of dead subfora nobody visits. Kinda as predicted, btw.

Also, people got on stuff like Facebook and whatever, so if there was anything to discuss, news-wise, it partly moved there.

People got older, got into other things, Asian cinema stopped coming to the west as much as it did around the early 90's HK boom, there were too few new faces coming in to replace the old bags that left (or were eaten by cats), and the forum just became more and more quiet, so the regulars would visit less regularly.

Oh, and Brad posted that picture of him giving a bukake to a turtle; that didn't help either.

I kinda agree with Yi, if we have an Anything Goes subforum that should be that, not other forums for TV, Music etc :) Otherwise it defeats purpose

Other forms of social media have taken over, basically. Facebook, youtube, instagram, vlogs etc. Forums are a thing of the past these days. I used to be a regular commentator at the Stunt People forum which was still quite active in 2012 but has since been dead for the most part. Even KFC (aka Shaolin Chamber 36/Kung Fu Fandom) is starting to go through that phase.
