After a full year I’ve been checking out this place again. I might stay and post a little…

But if not, I officially declare myself a retired account.

BUT THERE’S STILL MY FUCKING CRINGE POSTS!!! (which some I have removed (ignore this post is in place))

I’m fed up. I’m tired of seeing nearly jackshit in the feed.

POST SOMETHING ON OFF-TOPIC FOR CHRIST’S SAKE!

I have a lot of cringe posts from years ago so if you see one, be a kind fellow and keep scrolling.

On second thoughts, I don’t see any real point in being here anymore. I now hereby declare myself retired…maybe.

You came back, wiped a few of your previous “FUCKING CRINGE POSTS”, said little else, and then announce you are leaving?

Okay, I might come back to rant every now and then…

Today was my last day as both moderator and member here on this most exceptional, distinct and resolute Rebel base.
 

For a while now circumstances in my life (and likely many of yours too) have changed somewhat - and continue to evolve… unfortunately to the point of me no longer being able to give the time, energy and commitment that this fantastic outpost of Star Wars geekdom requires, and also deserves.

That, coupled with an ongoing agenda / a series of events by a small clique of people… ranging from sniping, insults, personal attacks, groundless accusations… and me being targeted for information and supposed ‘dirt’ on here, other places I frequent online, and attempts to find information about me in real life too. This culminated in two malicious phone calls made to my home last week - to which Mrs ooj answered and had the misfortune to deal with.

Star Wars, eh?

So, in a bid to bring about an end to this ongoing obsession that some sad ‘devotees’ have with me… I have decided the best option available is not to play - to remove myself as a target. Those who chose to engage in this bizarre stalking-like / agenda-driven behaviour (which goes way beyond any genuine criticism or differing points of view on my mod / posting style) will have to find someone or something else to obsess over - or maybe even move on and do something a little more constructive with their lives. Once you start down the dark side…

So many negative waves…

 

Despite the above, much of my time here has been an enjoyable, compelling, eventful and also an eye-opening experience - I consider myself both fortunate and honoured to have been a mod on here - for around 3 years now (on and off 😉) - and also a member here for 16 years.

Many positive waves are being sent to the 99% of the community here - from the site’s early days through to friends made in recent weeks - all you Rebels make the unseen hard work in helping maintain and run this great place all the more worthwhile.

So much has been achieved here, all by us, this dedicated and determined community of fans… aiming to put right what Lucas seeks to deny, dismiss and denigrate - and to also correct and highlight Lucas’ revisionist history of the Original Trilogy films.

Long may all of our efforts and contributions on here continue - and endure… 👍

 

Massive thanks and kudos to fellow mods Anchorhead, SilverWook & Tobar for their relentless work in helping make this intrepid Rebel Base what it is - and also for their friendship and support. Huge respect to former mods Moth3r and Zion for their sterling efforts and setting a high bar to follow. And of course to Jay too - who made all of this possible in the first place - and carries on with admin duties even today.
 

Anyway, that’s more than enough blathering on from me. Stay safe and well. Here’s to a better future 🍺

May The Force - and the unaltered theatrical version of the Original Trilogy - Be With You. Always…

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? 
Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Deeply saddened that you’re moving on, oojason, you’ve been a great moderator and voice on these forums.

I had no idea that the attacks you’ve received have gone so far, it’s absolutely disgusting behavior.

It’s a shame to see you go man. Best of luck IRL, hopefully you and yours weather the storm alright.

I’ll miss our chats on the football thread and seeing you around the boards, oojason! I’m sorry to hear about these experiences. I hope you’ll come back one day. May the Force be with you. Always.

Man, it is sad to see you go from these forums Jason.

I’ll miss you a lot, and likely many others will to. Not only being a good moderator but for your help, ideas, pointing us to other like-minded members, and just being ‘there’ for people. Helping with questions, helping us set up discussion threads with the layout or formatting and trying to making them stand out or draw attention. Also helping people whose English is not their primary language and other issues, and for re-labeling and amending countless threads to help make them more clear and what they are about. Your IT help and advice too, and the many IT Crowd jokes. I could go on.

Good luck to you wherever you go, old friend.

^ And that is also from Abel, Biggs and mykta, as well as from me. Along with sending those crazy Oddball vibes and waves in your direction too 😃

Thanks for talking me into staying last time (and so nearly persuading the others in our small ‘like-minded’ group to stay), but I now feel my time on here is at an end too.
 

As Jason says above, to the future! And good journeys on it.

Goodbye Jason, you have truly had a great impact on the Star Wars community and on the forum.

You have personally given me a lot of insight on the community and I am very grateful to have met you. It is terrible that these stalkers have gone to those extremes to harass you and Mrs. Ooj, it is absolutely inexcusable. Although I, along with the rest of the forum, am sad you wont be moderating the forum anymore, I have faith that you will be happy on whichever path you decide to go.

Good luck Jason, and may the force be with you.

I’ve gone batshit several times over for the sake of historical preservation…

I get the overwhelming feeling that I just don’t truly understand all that is going on around here and it makes me wonder.

I am so sorry to read that, ooJason.

I can only wish you good luck for the future and also send you deepfelt thanks for all you have done on here over the years. I remember you being a big part of the PIF movement on here many years ago and helping many all over the world (including me on my old account) get the latest quality LD to DVD transfers of the OOT and other cool Star Wars projects through the mail.

Then helping members out in general on here, and then even becoming a moderator during some pretty turbulent times both on here and for Star Wars fandom in general, all while still managing to help people out on here.

The Force Is With You.

Thank you for all your efforts.

It’s a shame we couldn’t keep oojason and get rid of whoever was harassing him instead.

I don’t know exactly what happened around here before and I get the feeling a lot is still going on that I don’t understand now. Why did so many leave and who is it that remained? Which side of what conflict am I now associating with? Hard to ignore that there’s more than just Star Wars going on now.

We’re gonna miss you Oojason. Your presence was constant and always welcome. I hope we meet again someday.

I am sorry to hear that oojason was harassed. Yes, we had problems big time. But this harassing crossed the line. Definitely, the phone calls to his home and wife did.

Well, I guess this is also goodbye for me, now that Oojason’s gone.

Y’see, now that I have no interest in Star Wars, Superheroes, or Popular Culture anymore, and the fact that Off-Topic now has the activity of someone in an old folk’s home. There’s a thread that was supposed to have everyone post their film and TV reviews, but only the OP ever posts. This really shows how much of a dead horse Off-Topic is, it’s a shell of it’s former self. I guess this is almost exclusively a Star Wars preservation site now; a site which I have no interest in. And since this is NOT a mental support forum…

I just do not see any reason being active anymore.

But before I go, I’d just like to say that my rowdy behavior is caused by my (mild) mental issues I’d not like to name for privacy reasons. Conservatives aren’t THAT bad; looking back it’s like judging Christianity purely on the Crusades.

But anyways, if I don’t come back to voice anything else that I haven’t already discussed…

Cheers, Spuffy.
