by the end of the thread it was basically clear beyond a reasonable doubt that boltster slapped together a really bad low-effort image host to play a fat jape on lord tony. anyway we never got closure and I want to hear it from the horse's mouth.......... boltster if you're out there admit to us that you did this

he quit the forums after getting called out on it

that drama was made in may 2018

he stopped going on the forums in june 2018

So he probably got banned and decided he's done with this stuff.

So he probably got banned and decided he's done with this stuff.
the only reasonable decision made on this forum in the past 5 years

bruh i forgot about darryl mckoy lmao

forgetin Australians lmao

the saga has come to a close


Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): so here's the scoop
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): So obviously yes that whole situation was just a really low effort gag at Tony's expense
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): Few clarifications though
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): 1. I never actually got banned for it (check the original post, it's still there with the dead image hosting link and everything). I wasn't silently banned either - or at least I wasn't in the following month that I was active for
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): 2. I very much doubt that anyone else could see it bar Tony. The script was set up to explicitly test for his IP which I got from his blockland server.  I tested it with several people beforehand
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): Also the fact that I wasn't banned really means that badspot/rotondo/whoever couldn't see it when they started reporting me
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): My running theory is that tony was in a discord with those kids that started posting about it (tito and whatever) and just posted a screenshot
Foxscotch: that's pretty interesting
Foxscotch: it's been about three years since then so I obviously don't remember exactly what I was thinking, but at least based on my posts I never guessed that it was specifically targeted at tony's IP
Foxscotch: I'd just assumed you changed the image after getting confirmation that he saw it
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): Yeah nah I wanted to avoid actual children seeing it so I went with a simple PHP script targeted at Tony specifically
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): Originally I was going to do it over a MUCH longer term, like register the website a year in advance to avoid suspicion
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): but in the end I was going to quit the BLF anyway so I just went with it knowing they'd figure it out quickly (still took them longer than I anticipated)
Foxscotch: one of my earlier posts in the thread was about how easy it would be to fake a video like the ones they'd had, and I went as far as to do it myself when someone expressed doubt
Foxscotch: https://forum.blockland.us/index.php?topic=318728.msg9859168#msg9859168
Foxscotch: but I'm not confident that zelau or any of the others would have had that idea, or the (granted, minor) technical knowledge required to pull it off
Foxscotch: so it was probably just tony's recording
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): Yep  100%
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): unless those kids share his IP
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): The whole thing ended up being a bit of a dud because I didn't get banned, that's why I just left ultimately
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): badspot has really let the place go
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): So yeah fun little piss-take at Tony's expense but not much more
Foxscotch: at the time I'd made that post I was firmly on the side that you didn't do it
Foxscotch: but that changed over the course of the thread as I and others were taking a closer look at the site itself
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): Haha yeah I actually felt terrible when people started defending me
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): Drydess especially I think took a hard line on my side
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): I did think that checking the site registration was going to be the first thing everyone did but was surprised they didnt at first

Foxscotch: I'll make another post in my thread with the confirmation in case anyone else was interested, if you don't mind. but if it's a big deal for some reason then I won't lol. mostly I was just curious for myself
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): yeah go for it, happy for you to post whatever out of this
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): i'm sure people will dispute whether or not they could see the pic but i'm 100% positive that's all BS
Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): as for why I haven't logged in, I purposefully changed the email and pass to some random junk string to stop myself in case I got tempted to come back lol, but yeah last I was on I wasn't banned


and to be clear that is his actual steam display name right now i did not add that myself

one final addition:

Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): now I just spend my days sitting here all lonely-like thinking about what Tony's hair smells like

Boltster (The Horse's Mouth): as for why I haven't logged in, I purposefully changed the email and pass to some random junk string to stop myself in case I got tempted to come back lol, but yeah last I was on I wasn't banned
It's amusing that Boltster actually had to change his information to gibberish to avoid temptation

Blockland really is a drug

thats more discipline than you think

even though we cant use alts anymore on here a new key has been just 10 dollars forever now
