Now that the dust has settled, was kidalex the most goated troll of all time?
I can't think of a more pathetic existence than the GOAT blockland troll, and luckily for kidalex he ain't it.

he's saying that 16 being the age of consent is wrong, genius, and that it should be 18 no matter what. read what he's responding too.

Because you were private investigating him in the comments

matthew's finest moment was posting a gif of Hat Kid dancing to celebrate Roe v Wade being overturned. that complete lack of self awareness is powerful. a true poster.

maybe badspot was so sour about us lot was because the lego deal fell through and he theorised we were to blame somehow
IIRC the Lego deal was back in the v0002 era, when there was like 100 players, I can't imagine him twisting his anger on the community then.

agree !! also I completely forgot about cortex command that was a pretty sweet game
i played the hell out of that game at 10 fps on my crappy HP, that game was so unoptimized it's hilarious. fond memories, I actually made a mod or two for that game rather than blockland, I think cus 3D modeling for blockland always felt so beyond my capabilities, I wish i had at least tried.

I think I have a pretty good example to highlight Blockland's uniquely stuff management. There was a game called Cortex Command, 2D combat game, it was included in one the early Humble Bundles, I think either 2 or 3. I fell in love with the game and logged like, 300 hours into it. The game was the alpha of alphas, there was barely any content for it - this term gets thrown around a lot, but it really did feel like a tech demo. It wasn't a particularly good game either, its main selling point was having every pixel simulated, think Noita, and also some beautiful pixel art. But nonetheless, it had a thriving mod scene, insanely thriving considering how small and feeble the game was, due to it being easy to code and having developer support. Anyways, the game gets a couple updates, they add an official "campaign" that was just retooled skirmishes, but no content. Developer radio silence for years, eventually the developers add an update to the game's menu that advertises their new game. The mod community eventually moves on, the game dies, so it goes.

So, we got an indie game with a good selling point and foundation, but not much content, that garners a loyal fanbase, who begin to mod the game and populate it with free quality content. The game is watched over by disinterested devs who don't impede the modders, but don't reallly help them much. The devs add very little content, and eventually start to advertise a new game they're more passionate about. Sound familiar?

The community for Cortex Command was as placid as it should've been. On the forums, people published mods or discussed mods, or gave help to fellow coders. There was an off-topic board where people would post what games they were interested in. There was some drama I think, usually from stolen assets, that was quickly arbitrated. Meanwhile on Blockland, you've got insane non-stop Drama, kids constantly private investigating themselves, rampant grooming, DDoS attacks, forgetin credit card theft?!? It's a Lego game where you build castles with your friends! Hell, Cortex Command was hyper-violent, all the enemy units would explode in bits of gore, talk about explicit - none of that rubbed off on the community.

Where do these communities differ? One of them has a hateful dev who constantly shows contempt for 8 year olds on his forum, and three moderators to control the posts of like 10,000 active users, and the other one had a larger moderation team for a far smaller community of posters, and devs who didn't use their forum as a sounding board for their misanthropic rants

ohh i meant he was in his mid to late 20s when he posted that - when we were friends i think he was 26 that was like at least a decade ago
oh no that's what I was getting at, Goth77 is 29 (according to his profile) which means he would've been 18 when that was posted, and Bisjac would be 24-25

Pretty sure they're around my age, give or take a year or two, I don't know for sure. What I do know is that 2011 was my junior year of highschool, and I knew seniors 18 or 19 years of age that were dating freshman that were 2 or 3 years younger than them. It's more common than you might think in that aspect. Digging up dirt on someone from a post that was 12 years ago doesn't exactly do much justice - 12 years is a lot of time for someone to change their entire personality. Within that time their entire outlook on life could change.
mid to late 20s
Bisjac is definitely older than you by more than a year. And the existence of Romeo Law romances does not invalidate the creepiness.

Also once again, there's seventeen galaxies between cancelling someone for 10 year old posts, having them lose their job, and us remembering how much of a creep a forumer was. This place gets like 20 eyeballs and the feds are (probably) not a pair of them.  And hey, if Bisjac wasn't all talk and did have victims, I hope that he does see the inside of a jail-cell

I think at 14 years of age it's rare to even recognize the issue with that. cus like at 14 ur moral framework is not really that evolved. and as a 14 year old you do feel attraction to adults, which just makes it harder to realize that it's not right for it to go in the other direction. you believe that you can consent to a relationship like that, so why wouldn't that belief extend to someone else your age? at least this was my experience at the time, and I am very fortunate that my not-so-responsible interactions with adults (or older teenagers) didn't end up with me getting hurt. I think the only way to address this is to teach kids about love and how  to approach it safely earlier in life. my first love ed class was in the 10th grade, where they showed us shock images of STI symptoms and told us to practice abstinence. that's not useful loveual education, first of all, and it was far too late. reactionaries start foaming at the mouth as soon as you suggest it, but the fact of the matter is, you can't keep people safe from dangers they don't understand18-19 years olds should not be dating 13-14 year olds. just because it happens, it's legal, and it's sometimes even considered to be normal, doesn't mean that it is good or healthy
Yeah I had the same experience, however I grew up in super liberal, where there was way more progressive love education, and even still I still knew girls who dated older dudes and vice versa. It's crazy how pervasive it is.

repugnant. i figured as much.

god damn, people love posting tepid "cringe" but this is real weapons-grade nuclear cringe, that loving icy shame that comes from realizing you didn't really question this stuff at a young age. In that way i try not to feel "guilty" about it because we had no agency here -  if I at 14 reported Bisjac or Otis or JimmG for creeping on preteens I'd either get radio silence or probably get called a moralcigarette or something.
