He's definitely left the Front Page.

Still, it's always a shame when it ends like this. People seem to forget that it's only a comedy website.

Mind you, given that he's now vanished, maybe there actually was an invisible mod editing his posts. I guess we shall never know.

After that there was light, land, plants, stars, animals, humans, and an ultra-serious comedy website.

# Hmm, a quick precis
1: Clay posted a picture
2: HappyToast liked the picture, and suggested Clay resize it to 400px wide as it was 4 pixels too wide for the FP. I highly doubt this was meant as a serious dig. HT also said something about Clay being obstinate, in reference to Clay refusing to resize for the FP in the past. I highly doubt this was meant as a serious dig.
3: Clay took offense and after a fun-filled few minutes accused HT of trolling him.
4: A mod came along and edited one of Clay's posts, and then edited it back again.
5: Clay emailed Rob demanding his account be wiped and saying that mods editing random posters' posts is beyond the pale.
6: Clay posted his email to Rob, and Rob's reply, in a thread just below. Then Clay's profile was deleted, as was the thread with Rob's reply.
7: Fun and games were had by all.
8: If you talk about the murkier side of B3ta you'll quickly find that the b3ta Stazi will be onto you, watching every single Like and Ignore you click. Then they'll edit your posts. And then when you complain it'll be like you never even existed. Be scared. Be very scared.

# Well, unless I did too
To be honest, he had a point about the mod going in and editing his post - THFH claims one of his posts was also edited. Even so, the whole thing seemed to blow up out of nothing; it was already ongoing before then.

Ah well, internets makes drama, I suppose.

Clay was a good artist, although he and I never seemed to get on.

# I was taking the piss out of Clay's "a mod edited my post" comments, because I assumed he was being paranoid.
As I later found out, he was correct. If he's reading this, I would like to apologise for taking the piss.

Still, what a fucking drama made out of absolutely nothing. Highly entertaining, though.

# Aha
I should probably have learned never to believe anything you say.

He's a good artist, and a damned good sculptor, and I always liked him. Be good to see him back. Even so, a whole host of drama about nothing. It's not like this is actually anything important, it's only b3ta.

# It seemed to me more of a
silly comment-from-the-editor type thing than a mod edit, anyway. Bit misjudged as he was already in a paranoid mood, but it wasn't really putting words in his mouth.

Shame he's gone, though. Talented chap.

I'm sure no harm was meant by it, but it looked like he was just about ready to go off at the slightest provocation anyway.
