Except that she's strictly wrong.
Poetry, by definition, is an expression of thought placed into non-gramatical line and meter. Though there are guidelines, THERE ARE NO ACTUAL RULES. So when you go around a thread and keep telling people that their poetry is wrong, I'm going to stand up against you. If using a name you hate will match the "proper" rules of what YOU define as a haiku (again, poetry is defined by the author, not the reader - that's where meaning comes in), then I'm going to call you that. Don't tell me you ain't even mad, because you're a shitty-ass mod if you're going around stopping people from having fun just because you have the power to. I'm talking about Haikus, The Hill, and everything else you've deemed as "unfit for fun" for everybody else, based off of YOUR definitions and not theirs. I'm not going to actively try to piss you off so long as you stop being such a fucking fun-tyrant.
He might not LIKE being called Sam, but he's not asking you to ban people over it. We grin and bear it, because it's brikwars, and it'S OKAY TO LOSE. Shit dude, even in most of your battles you always field the vastly superior army with super-beefed up stats so that victory is assured. Sometimes things not going your specific way is fun. And if you keep silencing everyone else for having it, then Brikwars ain't what it used to be. Seriously, you even banned Warhead for TROLLING IN THUNDERDUMB. You're drunk with power, dude. And not the good kind of drunk, but the throwing-up-all-over-the-sink drunk, and we're probably going to draw on you with a marker once it's over.
I'm not going around banning people for the number of syllables that a Haiku they posted has. Like, me talking about a Haiku, that isn't the same as me using mod powers on people for doing a Haiku one way or another. The only mod thing that happened in here was I banned you for something you knew you were going to get banned for before you even posted it anyway. I don't even like banning you, I just dislike being called that even more than I dislike banning you so that's why I do it. Almost every time you argue with me you say that so it forces me to ban you so I'm afraid you're under the impression that arguing with me = ban when it does not, I'm just banning you for saying that word, not everything else you said. You can even insult me if you feel like it and I won't ban you for it, you just can't say that one word.
I haven't banned anyone for calling him Sam because he hasn't asked me to, so duh that hasn't happened yet so I don't know why you're complaining about that because it never happened.
By the way, I lose more often than I win. The only battles I played where I used the crazy OP Assyrians and straight-up won were in 2009, if you care to check the record. Later battles with the Assyrians where I won were either forum battles not hosted by me or they were ones where my participation didn't include use of their signature Heavy Laser Rifles. The most recent use of those was in Piltogg's attack for the Head Separator part 3 where he succeeded in killing most of the Assyrians anyway and he got the Head Separator, so that doesn't even count. But that is all beside the point anyway because I have discussed before, and I am pretty sure you read about this, that I have moved away from the Assyrians in general since late 2011 because I discovered that they weren't an extinct culture after all and because of their OP guns.
Regarding Warhead, the last time I banned him was because he directly asked me to ban him, and he is unbanned, so I'm not sure why he hasn't returned especially since he requested for me to ban him. Before that, yeah I banned like 8 people for King of the Hill shit in my thread in Thunderdumb but I didn't stop Colette from making a new King of the Hill thread which still exists in there if people want to go and post in it, just not my thread.
