    Yes, that's right! The Bad.Mojo Army has been ressurected from the dead, and we want <b><i>YOU!</b></i> to help fight for the cause.

    What cause? The cause of removing the n00bz and v3tz from our forums, IRC channels, and our game. We the people, the vanguard of Infiltration, have supported this mod for several years, and to have it flooded with idiots posting textual diarrhea on our forums, spewing vitriol in our IRC channel, and ruining our online gaming experience with l33t sk1llz has become the norm.

    NO MORE! We will unite, under my ideals, to combat this menace. We will battle long and hard, to fight anywhere where we find stupidity in Infiltration, and either force it to reform or drive it from our sight!

    We are an army without a nation, a nation without borders, a faith without a common God. We are an ideal. Already people have enlisted with the BMA, including, but not limited to: Dank Budz, Disturbed, DENSRAW, OICW, UTProphet, and others! We are a clan-independent alliance, so you may continue to play with your clan whilst serving in the BMA. There are no rules, and there is no exclusivity. This Army is structured after the Canadian Army, with ranks assigned as such. Depending on your enlistment and service record, you will be given a rank ranging from private to general.

    Our mission: To combat stupidity in all things Infiltration related. It is really that simple. Our goal is to make Infiltration and all Infiltration related things fun for the people, and to unite against the common enemy: The n00bian front line, those that have driven us from our forums, from our channels, and from our game.

    You will be called a follower. Whenever a man names himself after the ideals of another man, he is called such. He is persecuted. FEAR NOT! For those that call you a follower call you this so that you may follow <i>them</i>. No matter what you do in life, you will always be following somebody. Isn't it better that you follow your ideals, your free choice, rather than following your need for acceptance? No man will be turned down from the BMA so long as he demonstrates the following traits: Humility, a sense of humour, a sense of fun, and a general respect for other people. For it is those that possess none of these qualities that we seek to oppose!

    Unite, my brothers, and resist the enemies that have invaded our game! The gamers have nothing to lose but their n00bs!

    <i>INFILTRATORS OF ALL COUNTRIES, UNITE!</I>

    OK mojo, can't be as bad as last time.
    But, I only agree on the N00bs bit.. I wont have anything to do with making Phatcats (and others) life here on the boards hell.
    The only people I feel need to be drivin into doing "nasty things to themselves and their families" are the Aussie Joe's, Free willie's etc.

    OK, Bad.Mojo . . . the soapbox is starting to strain under the weight of your ideals, which I DO, in part, share. I must say that I am quite amazed, really, that someone has stood up like this. PLEASE don't think that I am personally attacking you, or that I am protecting the n00bs, but an ALL OUT WAR on people in this forum is going to make things worse before it makes things better, IMHO. I just see that people are going to start seeing our community as an exlusive, elitist group, and that's not what we're really about. I agree that the stupidity IS irritating. If you're about getting people to act in a more mature, intelligent, and civilized manner, sign me up. But if you want to run people out of Dodge . . . that's kinda like a virtual genocide. I don't want people to feel intimidated by this forum at all. I don't like stupidity, but I don't like tossing people out on the arse, either. Post how you intend to "combat" the n00bs, so that we can glean some clearer understanding of what your intentions are. Maybe the best way, after all, to get the n00bs to leave, is to get them to stop acting like n00bs :) They CAN be converted . . . and besides, wouldn't this be a much better place if we could get those people to contribute something intelligent instead of "textual/verbal diarrhea"? More people to talk to, more people to debate with, more people to make this community. I say we stand up and make examples of what good, outstanding INFers are, and make the idiots stand out as idiots as such. Careful where you tread, here . . . your actions could have repercussions that make or break a great deal of this forum, which in turn could affect the future of the game . . . no forum, no fans, no INF. Anyhow, take it easy, Mojo. Let's get the ball rolling, and get people thinking like humans, and not the m0tards that some of them are.

    I suppose that's my fault for not explaining, guys.

    No, I don't want all out war. I want the vets who made this place grow and prosper when this mod was a virtual unknown to take back what they did before and do it again.

    And, in all honesty, I don't want to drive anybody out of the forums. I'd prefer to make them productive forum members... make them realise the stupidity they post isn't helpful, isn't necessary. If the BMA can turn one n00b into a productive member of the forum, its done it's job. Ultimately, if we have to drive all the n00bs out, we will. But I'd prefer converting them all to productive members of the Infiltration community, to be perfectly honest with you. We were all newbies once; we all posted stupid questions and made stupid comments. Its not that I have a problem with, and its not that that the BMA is all about. Its about our right as forum members to post what we believe. Its about our right as veterans to get the respect we deserve for helping this mod grow. Its about our right to force people to become better people, instead of locking or deleting posts. Its about the community taking back what is theirs. Its about making this mod fun again. Its about making the forums an interesting, funny, enjoyable, thought-provoking experience that it once was. Its about having a laugh at our shi<i></i>ttiness online, and being able to laugh at ourselves as much as others. Its about freedom, its about fun, and its about damn time somebody did something like this.

    I want some respect back in this place, instead of 5,000 people calling each other f4g0tz constantly, that's all. I leave for six months and everybody gets nuts. Forum vets are being driven out by the insane amount of stupidity. If we organise and stop the in-fighting, maybe we can make a change for the better.

    What constitutes a vet? Does being around since INF 2.4 count? :p

    Oh, and folks, I suppose I should point out... Raven said it the best, so I'll quote him here.

    (I wish I had said this in the first place, I guess the booze <i>were</i> getting to me)

    True. As I said, you're expected to be respectful and in posession of a sense of humour to join the BMA. Other than that, I don't care if you hate my guts.

    <i>But if you want to run people out of Dodge . . . that's kinda like a virtual genocide. I don't want people to feel intimidated by this forum at all.

    Yep.

    Well, as it says in the recruitment poster, email me at bad.mojo@pinkocommiebastard.com (if you use a web-based email, don't forget the period between 'bad' and 'mojo') or join in on channel #inf on irc.utgames.com.

    I agree.
    I will dread seeing more vets leaving this forum. I'll not join BMA since you guys will not need me, but it'll have my fullest support. :tup:
    Lets all do our part.

    Honestly, you guys should either put the BMA tag in your names, or not support it at all. I don't mean to be hostile, but the BMA tag is more a show of solidarity than anything else. To support the BMA without using a simple three-letter acronym to show that support is ludicrous, in all honesty.

    Three letters is all it takes to show support -- again, I don't care if you hate my guts, but if you admire what I stand for (that is, freedom) then put three simple letters in front of your name in IRC and online, and (soon enough) use our special BMA avatars, titles, and sigs -- specially designed to show solidarity with a good cause.

    It seems silly to me to support a cause fully, and yet not join it. BMA is not a clan, it is not a vigilante forum patrol -- it is an ideal. And no, you aren't just a lackey for tacking on BMA to your name. No matter what people might think, this is not so. I am no lackey of Marx or Christ despite being Marxist and Christian (how can I be a lackey to dead people, although my beliefs are named after them?)

    If you are sceptical about joining the BMA, or worried about being a follower, ask yourself this, and pose this analogy to others:

    When you walk a trail, do you follow the trail blazers, or the man who blazed the trail? And does it truly matter if that trail is named after the man who blazed it?

    Think about it. And feel free to recycle that analogy in case anybody accuses any of you of being brown nosers or mindless followers -- its quite a good analogy.

    I won't join, but I will do what I can to help make the forums a less n00by place. (Such as my newbie thread, which isn't working.)

    interesting, but will your additude change mojo?

    becasue you have been known to get "dirty" here(the fourms), and in the chat rooms.

    I think people should change themselfs before they can attempt to change others. Also I belive in tolarance for others opinions.

    BTW, if you are sincere about helping the community, I'll put aside diffrences.

    (this is not a shot at you in anyway, just a question)
