Default The Terrible Truth of Democracy - by Tau-killer, part 3.

The Fire of Democracy

WARNING - IF YOU HAVEN'T READ PARTS 1 OR 2, GO HERE NOW:
http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=9464.0

Someone has arrived.* Bringing up his username, he types in his password, accessing his account.* With a confident hand, he scrolls down the topics of the forum.* So 42 was right, the situation really was bad.* Who the hell did this arrogant Deathwatch person think he was?* Well, he’d be doing something about this.* He sends a pm to Deathwatch, telling him in short what a complete prat he is, then, having blocked him (as he has no wish to read Deathwatch’s inevitable reply) he decides to post something refreshing and controversial on the political/religious discussion board.* He is unaware that at that very moment, someone is accessing another account.
He has a message.* Glancing at it, he sees with satisfaction that it is not from Deathwatch.* He opens it and reads:

So rude of you to block my other account.* Anyway, I'm afraid I have to tell you that this is now my forum.* I decide who stays, I decide what happens and I decide who goes.* Have a nice day.
And with that, Dizzy is banned from the forum.

The moderators (what’s left of them) have gathered on a MSN conversation, the mod lounges being no longer private.* Luckily TO managed to copy everything to harddisk before DeathWatch forced them permanently open, so not much harm was done.* Wargamer arrives.

Elflord arrives.

They leave and Rjay takes Elflord to DW’s account.

If anything, Elflord is methodical.* He finds it very difficult to believe such a dreadful thing of anyone, let alone Restayvien.* However the Ips do match…He has a sudden desperate idea.* With expert fingers he brings up a local LAN map of the network and of the link feed.* Rezzy’s is clear among the thousands of criss crossing lines.* Then – he sees it.* A smaller line – connected to Rezzy’s.* Obviously someone had tried to hide it.* Then he understood.* Someone had hijacked Rezzy’s account and was using it to control the DW account.* But who?* He tries to follow the thin line.* It’s difficult but luckily it doesn’t go far, only a few miles away in a neighbouring town.
The town of Aylesbury.
Elflord had an address of the true controller of DeathWatch.

The electrical signals, sent to destroy his account, turn around, going the opposite way they collide with RJay's account, smashing it to pieces within seconds.

He leaves, and the mods are left in complete chaos.

TO unbans and KJ shoots back into his account in the same way that a married man shoots back into his trousers if caught having an affair.

Translate this - colledwr
he bans.* The pulses of electrical information surge towards TK's account.* They are met by the last remnants of the logic screen, almost completely neutralised by KJ's sheer illogicness.* It smashes through the screen, such is the sheer power of TO's fury - and TK's account is ripped into pieces and deleted.

Quote:

Epilogue – one week later – with all accounts having been restored.

Thank you for taking your time to read.* I hope you enjoyed it!

By the way I must just point out that all the characters appearing in this are entirely fictional, and bear no relation to any person or persons living or dead.* Any similarities you may see are a result of two things:
1. An overworked imagination
2. The sheer brilliance of the author!
