Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Wait, why did we (meaning Terra I guess) quit using phpBB in the first place, and is it something that's likely to be a problem again?

He explained it in the channel a couple days ago but, uh, I forget why exactly.  People generally didn't seem to like phpBB2 very much and then it got mass-hijacked, so people started liking it a lot less.  phpBB3 seems to generally be considered to be way better, and was redesigned from the ground up to prevent something like the phpBB2 mass attack from happening again.
