Yeah, pizza rolls count. Have you ever dipped 'em in jalapeno ranch? Yum yum.

I am really glad I never had to play with Crunkus.

I've heard stories that make me echo this sentiment.


Ok, Crunkus is getting a bad rap here. Don't get me wrong, he wasn't cuddly, but he was a damn good player and just played hard for the win. See Hot Potato for an example of him being a strong positive (both in terms of play and atmosphere) impact on the town.

I'm sure he was a very good player--I am also sure that I don't mesh very well with his style of communication very often.

Ranch dressing.

LMFAO

I hate ranch dressing, too.

But if you throw in some jalapenos and blend it all together, the jalapenos take over and it doesn't taste like ranch anymore. So, oddly enough, I love jalapeno ranch but hate regular ranch.

I'd say shirt is worse from an abrasiveness standpoint. The issue is that Crunkus would sometimes flood the thread. And I mean pages upon pages. And a lot of it would be abrasive.

I'm just saying that he's not as bad as some players make out, and that he deserves a better legacy than "That jerk".

My impression of him is formed entirely from the debates section, his conflicts with site mods, and a diplomacy game played with him, not from mafia. He was mostly abrasive and a dick in most of those interactions--not always, and to his credit he was usually right, it was just the way he went about being right that made me not want to interact with him.

Fair enough, I actually agree with this. I'd actually give him some of the credit for the site's meta evolving so differently than other sites did because of his focus on logic and interaction. On the other hand, you're right that he was not necessarily fun to engage with, and that definitely drove a few players away.

Speak not ill of the dead retired.

I haven't heard much, but when I asked ZZ about him, one example he brought up was Crunkus quoting an entire post and simply replying with "Vomit." That's too abrasive for me.
