No stranger present on the said list. That does not surprise me, I doubt I have made any contribution to the site that is worth a mention, though I like many others can say that I have become addicted to this site, which is something I never anticipated when I joined.
Turn around, go back.

I'm incomparable to the people on that list though.

I think Subutai and Sargon are new accounts of old people.

Also Jonathan.Crane. I think that might be all.

I mean, yeah, he's a human being and makes mistakes like all other human beings .. I can say yeah maybe he should, but then again what if he tries to commit everything over that he did? Jut saying...
Aperoin was actually a nice person though, he just didn't show it much when he was out in the forums and debates.

Don't get me wrong, he's a good guy. Another chance? Sure. But, he's listworthy.

Unless one integrates their stupidity into multiple areas on the site, they don't really make an impact as a villain.

I mean, there should definitely be a probationary period, but he's an amazing debater, brilliant guy, and he seems genuinely remorseful.

I got nothing against him. He just makes the list have some variety.
