Here is a "Top 10" collection of various flame-mails that BJ had gotten during his years of running the Game Pond. Enjoy (BJ's comments in bold italics):
first of all i would like to say that u ar an idot! lunar is not a bad game and the only reson u say u dont like it is becuse u never played it or u dont hav the skillz to beated it. ur probly too buzy playin those facny-dancy 3d rpgs to aprecate lunar! oh, i know, u dont like it becuz ur too busy wankin off to tiffa lockhurt's 3d boobs! so u take back what u said cuz ur a morron and ther is like mpre than 2 plot tiwasts in fact theres like 8 or so. it has best story so shut ur mouth! so stop playin those fancy 3d rpg crap and go play urself a real rpg like lunar. and once u play it u realze how good it is and then u can take back what u said and ghaleon is ur bithc!
BJ: I have never, ever played Lunar and never ever made any comments about it, anywhere, neither on message boards or my sites. I have no idea what this person is talking about.
I just wanted you to know that even though I posted at your board, I just wanted you to know that I don't like you very much. oh, and i haven't forgiven you. Just wanted you to know.
BJ: And I just wanted you to know that A: I don't have any idea who you are and B: Forgiven me for WHAT?? And I've actually gotten numerous emails with esoteric messages about "not forgiving me" for something. Here's a few more such emails:
Hi, BJ! I went to your board a long time ago, but I left and now I think I'd like to start posting again. But I want you and everyone else to know that I haven't really forgiven you for everything and that I just have a new perspective on things. Bye!
BJ: Maybe I'd be more interested in forgiveness if you'd give me some kind of idea of what I need to be "forgiven for". Here's another one:
I don't mean to sound like an ass but I just think that your stupid and you shouldn't post stuff on a board like that. Now i think you should go apaologize and take it back.
BJ: I shouldn't post WHAT on a board?? The funny thing is, I received this particular email during a time when I hadn't been on the internet in a couple of weeks.
I think you people got to grow up and act your age! You got to grow up! (deleted name of website) is a kewl site and you can quit bashing it now? I won't hear a bad word about (site name) and you got to grow up about it! A lotta work goes into those sites and you don't needed to bash it! People work hard on those sites and they pay big bucks for them, so grow up!!
BJ: This was my exact reply to this message: And you gotsa stop doin' bad gangsta' impressionzzz, yo! Listen, I don't have an opinion one way or another on the site you mentioned, and nor was I involved in any of the topics regarding it, so why you're emailing me about it, I don't know. If you have something to say in defense of those sites, then post it on the boards and leave me alone!
Chrono Trigger is a great game and you can go blow cornballs out your ear for bashing it!
BJ: Huh?? I've only said two things about Chrono Trigger that were even slightly negative. One was that I didn't think the music was quite as good as I'd heard it was. But does that really matter? Music is not a big deciding factor for me when it comes to whether or not I like a game. And the second thing was that I may like FF6 a little more. OH GAWD!! Chrono Trigger was a good RPG and I loved it, but I still might like FF6 a bit more! HOW AWFUL!!!
Mwa ha ha! Bwa hah hahaha! Mwa ha!! This is rich! Mwa haaahaha! Well, hello stranger! Bwa ha ahaa! No, no, I didn't email you. Mwa ha! But this is...bwa ha ha! (expletives deleted)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! You're really good for a laugh! I'd like to know why you INSIST on being a cosmic (expletive)? Ha ha ha ha hahahah! AU revoir, mysterious stranger!
BJ: Ummm...okay...I'm particularly intrigued by "No, no, I didn't email you". Is he, in some way, trying to make me believe that what I'm looking at is NOT an email??
I just want to let you know that I've been going to the Game Pond long before you ever were, and as long as I see kiera's name in the address, then that board belongs to Kiera and you have NO RIGHT to take it from her! And if you have some problem with that, and I seriously suggest you don't have a problem with that, then i'll bomb your ass and flood your board, and the only way you'll be able to stop me is to password protect the board. is that MEAN enough for you? Don't mess with me! And DON'T DELETE MY POSTS!!!
BJ: *ROLLS-EYES!!!* Okay, let's analyze this one: I was there the night Kiera created the Game Pond message board. It remember it very vividly. Right after I closed my message board (it had been hacked and I just didn't feel like dealing with it anymore at that point), Kiera decided to make her own. She then gave me admin and HALF-OWNERSHIP! This had been posted numerous times and was known to EVERYBODY who originally posted there. So, if I was there from night one, how could he have been there "long before" I was? And if he was there that long, how could he have not known that I had partial ownership? Also, it seems like he's doing this as though it's something Kiera would've _wanted_ him to do, and if he knows so much about her, then why does he make no indication that he's aware she passed away? (Also, I might point out, this person had a username I'd never seen at the board before.) And he acts like he's doing this for Kiera, yet threatens to bomb and flood her board? What a real piece of work this idiot is!
Yo Take Yo Boad off Now or Yo Suffer, Biotchhhhhh!
BJ: My exact reply: I would take my "boad" off now, but I'm pretty sure it's firmly attached to my body. But thanks for your surgical advice! I'm sure you'll get that Ph.D, soon! ;D
Your board is full of morons and assholes, and your the biggest dipshit of them all! You just act like you know everything, well your WRONG! You don't know jack shit! Your just a piec of shit! Your site is shit, your board is shit, your face is shit, and your a shithead! So go take a shit cause that's what you are - SHIT!
PS. I forgot to mention, you're a SHITHEAD!!
I have to totally disagree with you. Lunar is not a bad game, in fact its one of the bst rpgs of the past year! Its cool and you should give it a try. The anime is awesome and its better than all those 3d rpgs like final fantasy 7, 8 and such. I beat the game just recently and it was really really good.
BJ: This one's not so bad in and of itself, but again, I've NEVER said anything about Lunar! I've never played it, and I don't understand why I keep getting all these emails about it. And now, for my personal favorite:
I BELIEVE IN FREE SPEECH AND ALL BUT I THINK YOU TAKE IT TOO FAR AND YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN TO NOT SAY SOMETHINGS! THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT JUST DON'T NEED TO BE SAID AND SOME PEOPLE THAT FREEDOM OF SPEECH SHOULD NOT APPLY TO AT LEAST AT CERTAIN TIMES. JUST STAY AWAY FROM THE BOARD AND ONLY COME BACK WHEN YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY BECAUSE YOU ALWAYS END UP SAYING THINGS THAT JUST SHOULD NOT BE SAID. I'M NOT TRYINT TO BE MEAN, I'M JUST TELLING YOU THAT SOMETHINGS SHOULDN'T BE SAID AND THATS ALL I'M SAYING. SO YOU CAN HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH BUT JUST KNOW WHEN TO APPLY IT BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR LIFE AND I KNOW ITS YOUR BOARD BUT ITS NOT YOUR BOARD ITS A PUBLIC BOARD SO KEEP IT TO YOURSELF OKAY????
BJ: My reply was: I absolutely agree with you. "Freedom of Speech" shouldn't apply to all people - especially those who don't know how to turn off the "Caps Lock".
