WHERE'S TUZILLA

This morning he said, "Trivia... the New Frontier. This it the voyage of the starship Tuzilla. Its mission: to explore strange new websites; to seek out new trivia and new civil civilizations; to boldly go where no rabbit has gone before." Tonight it says, "this player has no public profile." Steve.........????????

I was in touch with Steve several times this week. He told me he was going to be absent for a while. He is not quitting for good and advised me to stay but I guess he is displeased with how some things are going so he has taken a sabbatical from sploofus. That is all I have to say so please don't attack the messenger.

He is way cool. We pm'd back and forth a few times this week. He was giving me some good advice and telliing me why he is somewhat fed up, and he knows Justin apparently so I suppose this is a boycott of sorts. He told me he would be back so I hope so. He is indeed a great guy. How are you Mr Peppermint Patty, I thought we had a date?

As I said he told me he was leaving for a while he talked about getting a receipe forum going. He said he was tired of the insulting politcial posting and had spoken to Justin about it and that he was going on sabbatical. He told me not to quit and he didn't want anyone else to quit, that he would be back. Let us hope so.

I a stunned, saddened, frustrated - probably all the things Steve was feeling and more. We just finished a WP together, not due to appear for awhile. As usual his phrases were the really funny ones.
Remember the song Harry Truman by Chicago?

OK everybody sing along:

Sploofus needs you
Steve Tuzilla
Stevie could you please come home
I know we all are sad
To see our favorite lad
Leave us from this island you love

Won't you come back Steve Tuzilla, won't you come back?
We've been moaning the whole day long.
We'll get those servers rebooted, we'll get the speed on track
Nobody meant to do you wrong;
'Member the fun threads we've had, not the real salty ones?
We love you Steve, without you it ain't no fun.

Who's to blame, all of us, and that's a big old shame

Steve Tuzilla won't you please come back?

What the heck does THAT mean?

Steve will be missed. I hope the sabbatical is short

Linda, have you considered applying to Hallmark, with your abilty to be so warm and fuzzy, surely they could use someone of your talent. Of course, in the real world you would be expected to stay on subject and not have your own agenda in mind... maybe you could start a line of "self serving" cards.

I wasn't trying to be nasty and you know I can be exactly that. It is quite obvious to everyone that Justin is not taking an active role here for whatever his reasons. I am aware that Steve knows him and lives not far from where the site in the beginning, at least, originated so speculatecd he might have taken charge. Never agreed with Steve on much of his politics but agree he will e missed as he offered much more here than on the SD

People come, People go....
New people come on and play Alpha Fe/Male.
I know after quite a few years here, Steve will be missed.
I also know that he use to design logos for the Sploofus banners, that was VERY COOL.
It's a shame.
I can't understand though-if you don't like the political bickering-JUST DON'T READ IT!
Been there-done that.
Hope he comes back.

I just know him through his quizzes. Fantastic quiz writer.
He will be missed but life goes on. People come and people go. New members will do their best to follow the path he has left. Even though he left to become an editor, it is a fantastic addition for the site. Maybe he felt that he did his best for sploofus and it was time for others to do the same.
Sometimes when you have nothing else to prove (100EAs, more than 1700 quizzes,WPs,...) it is time to move on.

I, too, loved the banners Steve made for the holidays and really miss them. He did a great job! He gave me a lot of good advice when we first started the Community Quizzes and when to make a wager and on different things. You never knew what kind of rabbit would come hopping by next which was always interesting. Hope he comes back soon.

I don't know where that rumor came from of his being an editor and Steve didn't leave because of nothing left to prove. He wasn't trying to prove anything. I think he is trying to make a point, he told me not to leave. He is hoping some improvements will be made in his absence. That is all I know and he will be missed.

I know, you are best friends with TSK too. Any insults although don't believe I made any overtly were certainly not abot Steve

I have been on sploofus going on a year now, never claimed either one was a best buddy. I only know what he said to me in 3 pms last week, so why you feel the need to insult me on yet another thread is beyond me. It is also ironic that, that is precisely one of the reasons he mentioned for his upcoming disappearance. Tsk has been on my friend list since I first joined and took one of his quizzes. You are just so hard to communicate with and today I want to be happy.

And we still wonder why he left. Diva is right in thinking we can just ignore the political threads. But she is wrong in thinking there exists a single thread that is safe from the bullying and attacks of a certain few. No thread is sacred or immune to their invasion. Even in this thread discussing why he left, that point is clearly evident.

Keep repeating to yourself, "I am not a bully. I don't help create the unpleasantness of the Salty Dog." It will not change reality.

I do not know you, madam, and am fine with that. What I do know is that I seldom come here or post here because of 4-5 people who seem to dominate the board with their opinions and their barrage of threads, and beat up anyone who questions their opinions.

Ask yourself, "If I disappeared from here today, what would the thread about me be saying?"

Now, flog me if you wish. I have said my piece, and will not be back to see it.

I should have mentioned. I know Tuzilla in the real world. A couple of you have on occasion received an erroneous PM from my account by him when he has been here. I have seen other do the same faux pas. I will be in contact with him sometime in the next few days. I will show him this thread and try to get him to post something.

Bye again.

You know, I can symphathize with Steve leaving over this. In real life, if you don't get along with somebody or someone is unpleasant to be around, you don't have to be around them, problem solved. I have political and religious discussions with people all of the time that don't turn sour, and if they do I walk away. That's one of the main problems here as I see it, that you can't walk away. The same four or five people can follow you and crap on any thread they feel like crapping on, and you can't get away from them, even if you aren't getting along.

Has anyone ever seen any other format available on the web, where you can talk freely about subjects with a selection of people of your choice (other than the PM system which doesn't work well for a group) where you can exclude conversation from (for whatever reason) people you don't ordinarily get along with? Wouldn't that solve the problem to a certain extent?

Myspace has a system where you can discuss a subject amongst a group of friends through a blog (as far as I understand it) where it's just people you already know and you get along with. Isn't there something like that we could implement? I'm not sure it's a problem with "diverse" views, but rather just how certain people handle those diverse views.

I would be so happy to be able to exclude just one person's comments from the threads I want to read...of course the problem there is that each thread would not make sense because others would be answering mail I could not see. And 50% of the threads would be blank!
I'd be delighted to be excluded by the others for whom my comments act like a red rag to a bull -- we'd all win!
But I can't see how it would happen.
Maybe you'd need the post there -- but blank in content?

Too many other things need fixing I think.

Mmmmm....what I had in mind is not really like that Barry. You have a friend list, and you can start a blog that only your friends can see and comment on. If you don't want someone to participate, you just delete them from your friend list and the conversation continues. It would have to be modified to work on Sploofus, but you get the drift. Anyways, I'd give it top priority personally, I don't do many of the games on this site anymore, so the chat portion is important......but that's fine if it's just me.

It is quite likely that Steve is listening to our discourse through a "newby" and getting an earful as to why he left.

"But I can't see how it would happen" is accurate, Barry. I, for one, think that we have threads to listen to and comment on but we can also ignore. Ask my fine friend, HRH. So, we continue and hope he returns as we show our preservation skills. If he needs a councilor, I suggest LODI, who is very experienced.

Let's all go to the "happy place"...where people who can't friggin contain themselves with political posts and have OBVIOUSLY been banned from Fox's chat forum.

GET A GRIP....

THIS IS A SITE FOR PEOPLE WHO LOVE TRIVIA....learning sumpin new and enjoying our lives.


If you don't wish to adhere, kindly quit....AGAIN...(You are really boring me)....

I've stayed in my hovering seat LONG ENOUGH. I've tried and TRIED to be above this ABSOLUTE CRAP...but I thought too much of myself.

I was been here when MB and Lodi left and the outcry was huge.

NOW HERE WE GO AGAIN....seriously...when does it END?

Some have sufficiently pissed off enough people to make them leave this FAB site due to FOX posts? Are YOU CRAPPING ME?

KEEP YOUR POLITICS OFF OF MY FRIGGIN TRIVIA SITE...

Was THAT clear enough?

As much as I loathe Fox News, and think the commentators seem like imbeciles, I don't see why people can't post what they want to.

Honestly now I get what Chick and some others are saying. It is alot like while I was in high school. There are people who are just natural bullies, and then there are those of us who are too afraid and allow the bullying to continue. I never spoke up in school well I am no longer in school, and some of this is just plain nasty business. If you can't express a difference of opinion without being jumped on and then you have the bullies accomplices to deal with. If you were just one on one you could handle it but of course it is never that way. This is what will definitely be a reason for a good many people to leave sploofus. I joined for the fun of trivia then got involved on SD, I was on another site before and that was fun too. So I think sometimes it gets to the point where you have to make a choice. I hope Steve comes back he told me he would.

"KEEP YOUR POLITICS OFF OF MY FRIGGIN TRIVIA SITE..."

Oh well then.....sorry......didn't know it was YOUR FRIGGIN TRIVIA SITE!

AND speaking of bullies, I clearly remember why Lodi left as she stated in a post (probably regretted later), which I had COPIED at the rate posts were being deleted.
The "bully" DENIED that was the reason, but I had the PROOF!

Whatever.......
It's your site, you make the rules.

It IS my site...I am the HMFIC...

It's my site because I am a member of this community and therefore (by definition)...makes it MINE. I can say what I want (except apparently for certain swear words, which offend the Church Ladies in charge here).

So...as Flo would say..."Kiss my grits"...get 'em Alice.

So...let's get back to the topic at hand, which the diarrhea of the keyboard has been stopping us of late...

Please come back Steve...

HRH...Me.

Wow, tying groups in with friend lists would've been cool. When he's going to fix this??

I was never bullied by anyone. AS IF!

I left for much the same reasons Steve did; The ugliness of the boards and the people participating in them, and Justin abandoning the site. Sploofus has gone so downhill in that regard that it barely resembles the place I used to love.

I have talked to Steve but its not my place to discuss his reasons for leaving - he has said he will do so when he is ready. Until then, I hope he enjoys his time away and spends it doing things that make him happy.

I just wish sending me food was one of those things that made him happy.

Thanks, Diva, Chick had sent me a pm a long time ago saying I was the only reason she didn't come here any more. Got it that sher did not like me or my politics. Wrote her back that she was the reason I quit the first time anf it had not one thing to do with politics and she was and it didn't I will not let someone's arttitude nor politics make me to decide to quit again. I too miss Steve as he did much more here than post on SD although he did that too political sometimes but usually not,

You know who you are.This plea does not include editors. Some cars not for use with some sets. Batteries sold separately. Some assembly may be required.

Tuzilla's absence is a big, big loss to this site. He has contributed hugely and he brings intelligence and reasoned argument to this site.
So some people dignify it by turning it into a slanging match.
Tuzilla don't let the detractors beat you.

Ok, Majesty, I don't like to lock horns with you, but you said " (except apparently for certain swear words, which offend the Church Ladies in charge here)"

Church ladies in charge?

I only set the record straight because there might be newbies who actually believe you.

Justin alone set the standards of what words can be used. He wanted this site, from the beginning, to be designated "Family Friendly" and set their standards as the standards here.

What words cannot be used has never been up to anyone but him.

And griping about ladies who go to church and don't appreciate nasty words isn't befitting a queen. Lots of us don't like them. If this were not a "family friendly" site, a lot of us wouldn't have joined with our loyalty and money.

Steve compiled quite a record while he was here - authored over 1700 quizzes - 100 were given editors awards - was ranked 23 in all time points - was one of those rare players that had all nine catagories awards

More than his playing record was his straight forward thinking and the ability to have conversations without insulting people

Hope at some point he decides to return - sure will miss him
