Who is socjo?
« on: 04 March, 2003, 03:09:48 PM »
There have been a few recent references to this chap, and I had a look at his posts in the banned member section. His activity pre-dates me pitching up here. Apart from the objectionable Death script, which I never read, what did he do to get banned? Or shouldn't I ask?

Have a look at alt.comics.2000ad as it melts down under his relentless spamming, you'll soon see why...

Hes probably been our only "troll", go to either alt.comics.2000ad (as Art Suggested) or the fantastically funny argue with scojo.  For a pretty good idea.  

Personally its best to leave alone, he just loves the attention, it makes him feel important.  I suspect he has little else in his life.

He encroached the boarders of Taste and Decency in the chatroom, and when he smelt a reaction, he went overboard- threatening female chat-sters, and insulting Rebellion's employees.

Suffice to say it was unpleasant and shouldn't happen again.

Oh yeah, and there are a few people who consider him to be a loon.

Best bet: drop the subject and ignore him and his posts (on other boards).
Cheers

Or alternatively, check out the comic genius that is ArgueWithScojo.

He thinks you're laughing with him!

Well he's wittering on the Argue group that he has just sent Wake his lastest drivel, a Strontium Dog movie script...

Wake, please please please do the sensible thing and do not put this up on the site.

Please god no! No more scripts, no more arguments, no more inane babble. If hes banned from the board why isnt he banned from the site, let him host his stuff else where. Cant believe hes still a topic, cant believe Im posting about him.

He isn't banned from the whole site, just the message board and chat room. I don't encourage anyone to talk about him, and I don't have a good reason not to host fan fiction written by him on this site.

Do you really think removing his previous screenplays, or refusing to upload new ones will reduce the amount of Scojo-related traffic on alt.comics.2000ad?

However, I can't be bothered to cut his new screenplay into separate sections, so it can only be viewed in one go.

If anyone wants to read it, visit the fan fiction page.

If anyone wants to change the subject, then post on other threads, but not this one.

If anyone wants to chat to Scojo, please join the 'ArgueWithScojo' Yahoo Group, rather than doing it on alt.comics.2000ad.

I reckon I fit the criteria for about half these points.

Should I be worried?

So is the silly tosser still peppering his posts with the word "FACT", then?  As in it's a totally irrefutable FACT that I can write Dredd far better than Wagner or Rennie and Rebellion will simply HAVE to wake up to this absolute FACT.

FACT.

Somebody pass on my regards to dear old Mongo, would they?  I tried to read his latest script, but it just did my head in.  I don't even want to talk about Wulf's accent.  He does realise that it's the actor who supplies the accents- right?  

Poor old Mongo...
Pffft...
