I tried digging up some more on Steve..
discusson about Nazi worship
Debate between Shep and Steve
Historical Heroes thread
- has some useful (I think) contributions by Steve also.
Here its Israel and Palestine stuff it seems
though I hav to admit watching Mike and Steve banter was always hilarious. Thats another big of nostalgia for me from the past, even though I'm not expecting people to "get" that.
Steve on boycotting
some interesting interactions gain with Mike. Significant to me, not neccesarily so to others of course...
He's written more than a few fanfics to the board.. he's a pretty good writer (I'll have to dig those up too), I did snag one of them
Steve uses fan fic to show why tanks beat Mecha [in his own words]
Ironically this is the thread the split mentioned above (steve vs Shep) evidently happened from.
Really though alot of stuff I am basing it on is personal knowledge and association with him. He was there on my own SB days, and I don't know if anyone can seriously expect me to ignore that in voting. Hell, I can remember Hav when he first joined.. anyone who can do that probably can say that he's improved MASSIVELY since then and contributes in lots of small ways (and I should note, not a slight on Hav, but the standards of "contribution" have in my mind slipped alot from the earlier days when the board was small. Simply avoiding spamming one liners on a consistent basis seems to be the minimum requirement for being a "worthwhile" board memeber nowadays.) - he can debate (even if he does get HoSed sometimes.. so do others) and he contributes to the board in an artistic manner (Which you can't really frown on since it started out as a sci fi board, and this coming from a man who analyzes 40K for a hobby.) Hav's a good choice too because he proves that even fools, if given a chance and if they have patience and listen, can become decent members of the board. That sort of example should be worth something all its own.
Thats about what I've uncovered so far. Its a bit time consuming to go through all this to find stuff, and I'm not sure anyone will be convinced, but what the hell...
