The I-A-B Letter of the Day #2: Please Ban-Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em
I have a question--what's up with banning longtime I-A-B users? I just found out you banned a bunch of regulars that have been members of this since forever--Vorpalword and CheesyQueso for starters. What the hell? Are you TRYING to kill I-A-B?
Signed, Mad at the Bannings!

Kill I-A-B? Au contraire, mon frere--I'm actually saving it.
See, here's the thing: I love I-A-B. I love that this is my job. I love that I-A-B is an internet underdog. I'm pretty lucky. Sure, I fight everyday with my managers to try to improve its design and the functions and I wish I had a little more in terms of resources, but for what it is, I-A-B kicks ass--the Mods kick ass--the community kicks ass. I'm pretty proud of what all three of us have cultivated here.
So when people like Vorpalword and CheesyQueso do nothing but bitch and moan about everything that has to do with the site WITHOUT providing any constructive criticism, it's time for them to go. I'm the first one to take readers advice in order to make the site better, but when people like Vorpalword and CheesyQueso go on and on and on and infuse nothing but negativity, what's the point? You can go to 4chan if all you want to do is surround yourself around depressed tweens.
So when I say I'm saving I-A-B and not killing it, I'm just cutting out its cancer. (Please dont write me pissy emails staying that Im mocking cancer, I'm not.)
Toodles for now, Fancy
Anyone have a beef with I-A-B, Fancy, the Mods, or life in general, just whip up a letter and send it to Fancy here.
