Every once in a while, mysterious eccentrics start threads on the SA Forums, captivating the community with their erratic behavior before everyone tires of them (this usually takes like a day, tops) and they're banished. This is not such a case (except the 'banished' part). Sponrad, who had posted for seven years without particular distinction, made a spectacularly ill-advised opening gambit, got banned for his effort, and never returned. Some photogenic Goons salvaged the thread for a while, and then its true redeemer emerged, summoned from the watery depths!

Here's how Sponrad started his thread "Meet My Friend Mermaid Shelly." As you can see, he really made a splash!

Forums mod Abraham, veteran of many challenges and counter-challenges, strikes quickly! Splish, splish, kaboom!

Another wise decision.

Wow, we're still on page one and we have not only a Moderator Challenge but also the rare Administrator Supersede, courtesy of angerbeet, who opens a whole new can of worms! Sexy worms, to use as bait -- for sexiness!

The rabble has been roused!
