it seems there's an extremely good chance I'll be going to jail for 90 days. Further, I'm sure that the time will keep being extended depending on how much trouble I want to cause them for this bullshit wrap.

Well just a heads up! potential three months with no Amir0x : the upside for me, I may miss my sisters wedding! Hurrah! The downside for everone else: No Amir0x! I'm sure you're all horrified.
basically my mother violently attacked me with her purse, and I restrained her from doing further damage. Apparently you're not allowed to restrain someone who is attacking you, you must walk away. Long story short, my mother is hitting me with one of them things where if I go within 90 meters of her house I will be arrested and put in jail for 90 days. I fully intent to do precisely that, to piss my mom off. And I will keep doing it, over and over again, until she cancels or burns the notice against me.

As a mod, Amirox was abrasive and argumentative. He would then ban people down the road by holding grudges against them.

It was basically forum bullying. It's hard to imagine how many people he banned/got banned that would still be around if it wasn't for his conduct.

Speaking of, did the admins overturn the bans done by Dragona and her BF when she went apeshit?
I'm fairly certain he juniored me after arguing with him about the Casey Anthony trial...if he had that power.

I don't think he punched her

Good thing you're here to defend a grown man, OP.

People don't like Amir0x and it's pretty easy to see why he rubs people the wrong way. Who gives a shit that people outside of NeoGAF leave comments for him, suggesting he is gay, does drugs, is a drunk driver, assaulted his mother or any of the other insults thrown his way?

Why don't we let Amir0x deal with it himself? It hasn't bleed into his actual life, unless someone can prove otherwise, and clearly these comments don't bother him as he continues to post actively and hasn't changed any of his habits, which again seem to greatly upset others.

What a weird fucking thread.

And even weirder news regarding Amirox.

GAF never ceases to amaze me.

Some people care about the internet and forums waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much.
 

I'm an expert

Formerly worldrevolution. The only reason I am nice to anyone else is to avoid being banned.

Forget his posting style, there's nothing unusual or uncommon about it, but once he came here and started begging for money I couldn't help but roll my eyes at how easily he took advantage of the "community" he basically uses for his personal entertainment. It's awesome people from here were able to overlook all that and help out his mother's situation (though this is the internet, I'm always doubtful), but at the very least dude can endure some stupid comments on youtube pages for the payout he got.

I don't know the full story. But for some reason, I do add "Amir0x sucks" to every youtube video I find.

He's a grounded poster, I'll give him that much. Seems a little petty to still be baggin' him for the days where he was a mod (I think that Ami de-mod thread basically said all GAF had to say- and damn did it say a lot) but yeah.

I'd probably be pissed though if I was active during the Dragona thing and she banned me for shits and giggles, came back and wanted to have a jolly time. Two different things though.

That guy makes videos about "Sony drones".

I don't understanding how anyone can care enough about this stuff to become obviously emotionally invested in it. These are video games we're talking about here people, not abortion.
Whatever he said in the weird ponies thread seems to have gotten to him. Certain things on here aren't worth getting the bits or the headache.

Since when are we Sony-centric?

Also, it's funny that some of those people get so angry when they are banned. The messages they replied with show EXACTLY why they aren't here. Throwing out homophobic and racist remarks because you're banned from a forum on the internet? That's why you're banned, because you're extremely immature.

Some of it comes from when he was a mod and the infamous editing scandal but most of it I think is because he has strong opinions and isn't willing to shy away from them when challenged. People in general are rubbed the wrong way by that, I know from experience. My response would be to grow some thicker skin but whatever.

No one remembers that thread where he got caught editing his posts when he was a mod? its why he got demodded. i remember that giant Phoenix Wright gif post telling the story of the whole thread and it was amazing.

and then he was recently banned cuz he was patronizing the MLP fanbase, wanting them to concede that we are below him. basically it was a 'i am better than you' crazy rant he was going on and he ended up fighting with everyone.

and then the thing about him punching his mom came up which made everyone go WTF.

every pony thread someone gets banned for being a jerk.

I was wondering the same thing seeing posts in comment sections (of vids linked via NeoGaf) mentioning amir0x which generally stated: "Amir0x is a fag" or something to that effect. Now I know it's Youtube but how and why did this member get infamous? I know the guy posts here like all other members but I haven't seen other older members specially mods like Bishop, EatChildren etc ever being mentioned.

Is it some sort of meme?

You can have strong opinions without being an abrasive asshole about it.

If he still has his avatar, he isn't permmed.
This is a myth. IIRC it's just a glitch in the system that sometimes happens with temp and perma bans.


Mods don't get mentioned cause they are still mods. Ex-mods don't stay at GAF. Amir0x is, from what I know, the only ex-mod who still visits GAF.
sprsk and mikeworks come to mind, and I think the Amir0x stuff started while he was still a mod.

Legendary thread right there.

Amir0x editing thread >> 3 year old bump "I told you so" thread >> DQIX to DS thead >> Wii name reveal thread >> "So this guy stuck his thumb up my bum and I punched him" thread.

I bet you it's a combination of anonymity and and other factors. There are a lot of lurkers (without account), current posters (with account), banned posters (temp or perm) that see a Youtube video as an opportunity to speak freely or run wild and be trolls. Since changing to your real name on Youtube is still optional, we'll never really know.

Yeah, any links or summaries of this episode? Sounds crazy lol.

Also, Amirox punched his mum? Was this recent? Sure I can remember a thread from the guy begging for donations for some surgery she was having or something. Crazy stuff.

You can have strong opinions without being an abrasive asshole about it.
And most of the time it's received the same way by people. Make a post or thread detailing how you think Nintendo makes bad games or childish games but without strong, negative language. I'm willing to bet you'll still get plenty of posts immediately dismissing you or mocking you.

Same here, I'd be interested in hearing what exactly happened.
IIRC, Her boyfriend was using her account and banning people. Got banned/demoted. She got account back, didn't get remodded. She left GAF.

sprsk and mikeworks come to mind, and I think the Amir0x stuff started while he was still a mod.
Ahh, of course! Those were the good days when they were all mods. mikeworks is a cool poster.

Well on Youtube where you can have free email ip for sign up as opposed to here, one would expect the same inane crap to hurled at other mods as well. Amir0x being singled out puzzled me but I guess I'm learning as to why it may be so.

Legendary thread right there.

Interesting. I thought these things may be bannable offences let alone earning one a demotion.

Is it true that there were pictures of her out there, specifically of her under a table? And that she was kind of hot? Just asking because you seem to know your stuff.
