Im surprised that no one pointed out that MEGA is in fact Franko. He caused some controversy with forum members on Amiga.org many years ago. He got in a huge spat with Wayne to be frank.

@DiscreetFX

Friend DiscreetFX.

I most certainly will flex my oily arms! In fact, I will not flex them for you, but for everyone on AmigaWorld who have been mistreated over the years. But before I get to the ENTHRALLING NEWS I promised you all yesterday, let me start by a public apology.

I am sorry for the negative emotions my mischievous behavior seem to have caused. From the day I became a proud AmigaWorld member, bearer of good news from West Chester and positivism alike, I have strived to flourish as a thriving dandelion in the unruley lawn that is the AMIGA community. But alas, I have failed! For every sigh, for every moment of wariness and for every remark I have received, I have realized that flying the AMIGA flag isn't as easy as I once thought. For in these waters, navigation is a treaturous undertaking.

Fortunately, today, I am excited to share the good news with you all!!!!111!!! Thanks to the good grace of Sir Doyle, I have been ELEVATED, acknowledged to soar like a vulture over the AMIGA lands. With this gesture of recognition, I feel like I am finally ready to accept the responsibility that a lot of AmigaWorld users have wanted me to have from the first day I connected my Guru Joyboard to this site.

You may as yourself how I will wield this new power? Will I be an omnipotent ruler, ready to cast others out in the cold the same way I have endured? NO, I say!!!!! NO, because I believe in the good of all AMIGA users alike, be they running AGA, RTG, ECS or Uncle Sassenrath's unicycle. Under this new reign, everyone will be treated equally! Let this new rule be a new beginning of AmigaWorld, where all kittens can sleep in the same basket, without having to quiver with fear hiding from the BLUE BUTTERFLY!!!!111!

Under my protection, you are all welcome and safe. So say I, and so say everyone of us! In closing, I'm going to ask everyone to tip up their glasses and, for those who still can, raise them to us all. WE ARE ALL AMIGA!!!!!11111!!!!!!!!! !!!!

QUICK, NOW!!!!!!!!! DASH TO THE LOUNGE WHERE COFFEE AND CAKE WAIT!!!!!!!!!! IIIIIIIIIIIII-IIIIIIIHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!



TO THE GROOM

Youre becoming a aw.net moderator now? I always wondered what type of mod you would make.

Franko is also the designer of Apples infamous butterfly keyboard so he has spread his misogymy into the Mac camp as well.

@AmeegaGuy: Did you read my second post about the avatar-matter? Its not about Copyright, its about using photos from an other aw-member. Just bad style in my opinion.

That is one of the first things I thought of, after reading just a couple of his posts. Funny that you have suspected the same thing, or at least thought of it and brought it up in this thread.

As for the other account that the "Real" Mega RJ is complaining about becoming a moderator here, everyone can become a moderator like him if you just alter your avatar picture to look like his. All he did was to photoshop his avatar to add the title of moderator under his picture, and you can clearly see that his title remains as "new member", not "team member".

Edit: If I were a moderator here, I might ask him to change his avatar and stop claiming that he is a moderator on this site. Now I'm wondering who banned the "Real" Mega RJ, so I would know who I can contact to report posts that really should be moderated, as it appears that the "Report" function on this site isn't working anymore.

Special friend DiscreetFX.

They say that everyone has a twin. I can assure you, however, that this is not true. In this shielded, enclosed diaspora WE ARE ALL AMIGA!!!!!11. Accordingly, special friend, there is no one of me. Like the community, I may split into several entities - but like the community, I may also join as one. It all depends on how we cultivate our garden, would you not say? Let me be clear. There never was a clone. Or was it? IT'S NOT A LIE IF YOU BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BUT!!! Thanks to the good grace of my fellow colleagues, my new found power will allow me to shed my outer layers, revealing a red and white core with strength of the like AmigaWorld has never seen! The gravity of my being will let all of us form a tight orbit around my waist, and for every revolution will form a ring ever so tight. LET THE BOING BALL BE OUR NEW PLANET!!!!!!!!!!


RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!


Friend of friends, MRM

Franko will take advantage of any Amiga forum that does not have tight moderation. Notice he is not on EAB or Amigans.net. Those sites dont have loosy goosy moderation.

Mega RJ Mical is a clever, witty and often funny member. I understand that he annoys some, but I think it's unfair that we ban the real account rather than the false account. Moderators should be wise and should not add fuel to the fire. Those who claim not to see the difference between the true and the false account are liars who take advantage of this situation.
I don't agree with Mega RJ Mical about Amos because I think we should let people try and encourage them. But there is no reason to ban him. Even if his avatar is hideous and we don't agree. Otherwise, we should ban half of the members and we would feel alone on this forum. Let us be tolerant and accept divergent opinions.

I dont think I agree with him using RJ in his profile name. What if someone confuses him with the real RJ? Its not up to me though.
