After the purge came many changes. The OT got its first sticky, which most thought pointless. Then came more stickies. Not to metion additions to The Moderators, where there was one many now stood. All with the might of the greatly feared Ban-Hammer. Now the OT is a more subdued place to be. Some say that it is better, the more vocal of the oposing group of thinkers have been ban-hammered to oblivion. Needless to say the Great Purge was a time of turmoil, the OT was taken away from us! We were force to go into the other forums, like General Discusion, yes they were harsh times indeed.
Although at the time it was a horrible time nothing would amount to the OT's ultimate destruction. However, even with a worse outcome, the ending was happier as the OT moved to a place of ultimate powah. The safe haven was safe. And no Mod would ever enter the kingdom of the OT.
