    Jesus ****ing christ I forgot about her. I had an old TSR account years ago when negs and ISA existed, died and then came back recently reincarnated as Snape What happened to ISA, does anyone know? Did she get into Oxbridge? Did she get some self esteem??
    She didn't get into Cambridge, she ended up at Durham and has matured quite a bit.

    I did miss ISA when s/he disappeared, tbh. I always voted for ISA in the "most missed TSR member" and "most controversial TSR member" in the yearly awards :awesome:

    If she came back properly and posted the way she used to, I think people would quickly get bored and remember that they never liked her.

    I never found ISA boring! Def was like :headdesk: but not boring. Though ngl, I've never had some much schadenfreude (not sure how to spell so hope you know the word I mean) as when s/he didn't get into Oxbridge :devil:

    I'm such a meanie :getmecoat:

    Haha true. And fair enough that you found him/her boring. S/he was like a broken record in many ways...

    I think she was just young and outspoken - I kind of liked how bold she was in her posts, at least she didn't hold anything back and she had a neat way of staying just within the margins of rudeness to not get blocked whilst still being extremely rude. :teehee:

    Yeah. Every now and then I do say something people seem to agree with...

    Oh those were the days, when you could go and subtly troll other football teams threads after they lost (don't worry we all take it as banter, and it is a vital part of the football forum) and you knew you would get 4 or 5 lovely downvotes for your trouble.

    They need to bring it back tbh, there's some real vile stuff on things like the religion forum for example which deserve 50+ downvotes, but due to the current system you would think these are popular opinions because 7 or 8 other idiots have upvoted then (oh and that's people on BOTH sides of every anti Islam debate).
    If you set a limit on downvotes a person could give to another poster or a limit on downvotes on a post then I don't see the problem. I remember them saying it was partly because trolls wore the red gems as a badge of honour but all it has ended up doing is make trolls more difficult to find and ignore.
