Just to put my two penn'orth in - I spoke to Arka a lot on MSN and he scared the hell out of me towards the end. Honestly, I was scared. I think I showed Neil some of the conversations I had with him, I'm sure he'll agree they weren't normal. Personally, though he gave huge amounts to this site, and I really respect him for that, I think the site has been a calmer place since he's gone.

Good posting!

I know we privately pleaded with him in the most respectful way to calm down as banning the top member of a forum is not exactly something you want to do. But instead he came out saying stuff like we would never ban him, he could do what he wanted because he owned this place. He did turn into some strange character, a horrible character, near the end of his journey here.

I wasn't around for the Arka hay day but it appears it's quite a legendary tale.

'The Humble Indian Turned Arrogant Beast.' It is legendary indeed.

I was really annoyed I was away for most of the summer last year so I missed half the good stuff that was going on lol Although I'm sure it was terrible for those involved though ...

Frown  It was.

You had to love the sheer mount of info and stats that Arka gave us.

 I know I'm not half as clued up as I should be about our up and coming British juniors as I was, but nothing excused his utter and complete personality breakdown at the end (and that was only from the board, nowt to do with msn, I only interacted with him on here, and until near the end he was always rational and reasonable)

Frown To me it seemed as if he had an illness that manifested itself once he felt threatened (dentie, I'm just speaking of how I felt so  dont rush in to defend him, please. I'm not interested.)

 It's MY experience, and I dont give a tinkers cuss about how "nobody understood him, he was an outsider" Crap! He became so fixated on his dominance on here, and so absolutely sure that he was always right, he was totally obnoxious. Knowing when to step down and say you are wrong is one of the greatest traits you can have, humility rather than total arrogance wins it for me any day.


:P And that's my final word on Arka. I'm moving on!!!

Yes you did show me. I was quite shocked by some of the things he said, and I certainly won't go into them. They were not normal and Arka was someway to losing it. He did a lot, but he couldn't accept any criticism at all.

Absolutely agree with everything you said Tally clap

He turned from a humble person (or pretended to be) to someone who genuinely believed he owned this place and was immune to the rules. He learnt the hard way.
