Hey folks!

I've heard the name tossed around and just poked around his blog a bit. Looked him up as a user and saw a *LOT* of posts, and someone mentioned that he doesn't come around Dakka anymore. Anyone know why?

He was permanently banned for breaking forum rules, ignoring Yakface's advice to change his manner of posting, and generally being a disruptive element to the forum. That's what I was told (more or less).

He has a blog, but like his posts on Dakka Dakka it's an unreadable self-aggrandizing mess of semi-connected thoughts and half-baked musings, wrapped up in lol-speak.

Still, some people like it, so if you want more it's easy to look up.

There was a thread on here earlier linking to how the fact he still lurks here. It linked to his blog and he had responded there to a thread here and quoted a little bit.

His blog is not for me, but it seems popular.

If you say his name three times into a mirror he appears. He has a strong cult of personality still at dakka due to his constant posting, but has yet to really "put up" or shut up his ability with the game. I dont see his list at the top of any major tournaments and it seems his time is spent expounding on his own virtues.

That said he knows his gak about 40k and I have emailed him before about advices.

he had alot of good advice, sometimes you had to sift through some garbage to get to it, but its usually good listening to what he has to say.

his presentation was often a bit abrasive for the average gamer though.

There ain't nearly enough Salvage in this thread!

After achieving his 2000th black belt (he has several in all martial art styles, including the styles he invented himself like Kung-Fu, Tae-Kwan-Do and Ninjitsu - yes, he invented those!) he said goodbye to the 50 Super-Models he's married to, left all his money (ie. half the world's money) to every charity on earth, and then ascended to a higher plane of existance.

He now exists as pure cosmic energy and tells God how to run the universe.

Ah. I read the mission statement on his blog, where he's talking about how much all 40k players suck, and his goal is to teach people to be better...someone who professes to be that awesome is someone I want to play against to see how I measure up.

I happen to think that I'm the most awesome 40k player ever! =p If he's the most awesome player too, then we need to meet and duel it out to see who is truly more awesome. Unfortunately, I've only been playing for almost a year now, and haven't had the chance to go to any national tournaments to meet other truly exceptional players to measure up against. I'm really looking forward to 'Ard Boyz!

If you check out the public record of the tournaments he has competed in, he usually scores the lowest, or nearly the lowest, sportsmanship. Apparently he's like that in real life, according to people that have played with him. There's some podcasts around that he guest-hosted a while back, and in listening to them I was surprised: he really is that...special.

So THAT'S why the entire Universe is so ass-backwards. I just went to his blog and it turns out that it's kind of like legalized streetgang graffiti. I just wonder what terrible, terrible thing was done to him in childhood to make him so bitter, and how I can arrange for it to be repeated for my entertainment.

After he became a 'Stelek of Dakka Dakka' for some podcast or other; a poster boy for all things 'Dakka Dakka' it was only a matter of time before he went.

The sycophants that inhabit his blog are the worst - like trained attack dogs they are. If you have the temerity to post at his blog as "Anonymous" (ie. don't/won't/can't be bothered to log in using an actual username) they unleash themselves upon you, essentially claiming that those that hide behind anonymity are automatically wrong. It's like an institutionalised ad hominem attack. It's far worse than any of the daily claptrap we get from JonnyDD or the rest of Dakka's vocal and vacant crowd.

He's very condescending, arrogant, outright rude, and bigoted. I wasn't here for long before he was banned, but I don't see his banning as a loss.

People are like dice, a certain Frenchman said that. You throw yourself in the direction of your own choosing. People are free because they can do that. Everyone's circumstances are different, but no matter how small the choice, at the very least, you can throw yourself. It's not chance or fate. It's the choice you made.

It seemed, from his posts on the topic, that his only failing is in the department of social graces. As far as him "putting up" by winning (even BG) at a major, closest I ever heard was him throwin down against what's his name from the Wrecking Crew ( a WHOLE nother sore spot to many here on dakka; tread carefully unless oyu want to stir up crap). Their leader Mark or Matt or Mike or whatever. Stelek lost, I think he conceded but not sure dont recall too well. That was LVGT a couple years back?

If you go and check out the blog site (http://www.yesthetruthhurts.com/) he is so awesome he can travel in time (ie. the latest blog entry is for the 12/7/2009).

Oh no, they care, Stelek has just stopped spinning their part of the time-stream so they can't lock the thread, thereby allowing us to continue talking about how TOTALLY FREAKING AWESOME he is.

He was a poster that thought statements like; "Im simply being truthfull", "I call it like I see it" and "Im just stating my opinion" was an excuse to be rude, abrasive and insulting.
He believes honesty and politeness are mutually exclusive. The style was something along the lines of; "Why say that I disagree with X about Y when I can call X an idiot and tell him Y is a criminal waste of bandwidth?"

Having said that he do knows 40K and has a lot to offer. His style just requires a certain mindset to sift out the nuggets.

He was perma-banned after several temporary bans for failling to follow the rules of the board.
