NEW YORK — Light Reading has moved into the post-BobbyMax era.

BobbyMax, curmudgeonly author of more than 1,170 messages on Light Reading's boards since May 2002, has been "deactivated" for violating the site's Terms of Use.

Stunned, grief-stricken Message Monkeys are left asking: “Why?”

Here’s just a portion of what led to BobbyMax's banishment from the boards (parental guidance suggested):

    You have stolen money from the donation boxes installed in many churches. You have no conscience. You have starved many people to death.Please stop killings and atone for you sins.

    You are a damn bastard and the most stupid person on this earth. You have survived because of the generousity of Americans. You have fooled us all. You did number on us.



    You are a sick person and mentally disabled person. You dumb salesman should have no contact with me.

    For writing something stupid and knocking at doors to sell cookies. My posts are not wrtten for a low level person like you. I think you have sh*t in your mouth and the country suffers because of people like you.

    You are damn dirty man with no literacy and class.
It seems that someone struck a nerve, and our Bobby, tragically, crumbled in his anguish. Always weird, yet ever provocative (see Searching for BobbyMax), his unique contributions to the art of English syntax left his legion of devotees with mouths continually agape. We here at Light Reading mourn the overthrow of this once great mind.

Donations may be sent to the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute.

”You have no interest in our heritage who is sell the dignity of our great attention.” – BobbyMax

— Larry, Monkey, Light Reading

re: B. Max R.I.P.

BobbyMax was always an example of how lame the LR message board and the industry were becoming. Some of the non-sequiturs were funny, but the level of blatant stupidity quickly became tiresome.

We readers are pathetic losers for being sucked into visiting LR by their decision to can BM for going off the deep end. Heck, it worked on me!

I am pathetic for wasting my time on this post! And no beer in my fridge for me to cry in. Damn!

Shouldn't most of you be looking for WORK?

Just asking...

Yes, looks like LR is cleaning house. LR was hot for so long and now that they've cooled a bit, they're shaking things up. Maybe they think that a more focused and industry relevant message board will help with an image change? The editors themselves even seem to be less zany when they post on the boards, infrequently as it is.

How are you gentlemen!!

Having my main screen turn on today, I get signal. What! War was beginning. What happen? It's BM!! What you say!!

Obviously he was on his way to destruction, and he has no chance to survive make his time. But it also looks like someone set him up the bomb.

Take off every 'ban'. LR, you know what you doing. Move 'ban'.

Reinstate BM for great justice. All your base are belong to us.

I'm also sorry to see Gea gone as well (if indeed he's also been banned and not just taking a break). All of a sudden LR is cracking down on their message boards' content?
