Yesterday, TKA had a close call when rival agency TRA, lead by Revival Activist, Voidmaster, attempted to stage a coup by stating in his manifesto
that the group's intentions were to 'reverse' the illegal killing of threads caused by TKA.
‘This is being constructed to act as a restraint against TKA, so they don't get outta wack and start killing good threads that deserve a long
life,' said the outraged TRA spokesman.
Malicious and unconfirmed allegations of blatant and purposeful killing by TKA, had been making the rounds recently, with talk of members taking
delight in slaughtering their own threads and that of others. By sundown, the news of TRA’s white glove throw-down had spread to the BTS community
In a matter of seconds, TRA had a shocking 30 views with various members weighing in and posting ANTI TKA sentiments. The TKA agency, with a
membership of 12 registered members and many more supporters, has repeatedly claimed in its manifesto, to be a support group for ‘lost souls'.
Among other things, TKA also claims to have research at the core of its goals, and offers a 13 step programme for thread killers as well as an
unlimited supply of fresh Sanka and donuts.
Following the TRA announcment, TKA members where on hand almost immediately, teaming up in a best practice example of fine cooperation, to put out the
fires (so to speak) of discontent and animosity, before it was too late.
Vice President Duzey was initially misquoted by rival agency News of the World, as saying this when asked about TRA:
‘I used to be quite a 'rhymes with witch' when I was first here, so don’t go reviving too much or I might have to go all medieval witch on your
It was later found that Duzey actually said this (in a very plummy accent): I don't think anyone in TKA sets out with the purpose to kill a thread. I
actually take the time to think about a response and not take an adversarial stance…’
Newest ATS member Kalapadea, fast making a name for him/herself on BTS, interjected with this: ‘I don't see anything worth mentioning about a
special group of people whose point is to revive threads that died when they were supposed to. Reviving a forgotten thread is like shocking a dead
The situation grew heated when SuperMod Rant, from the Secret Dead Horse society, weighed in with his own list of possible revivals, featuring (among
others to numerous to mention): The Wonderwoman movie casting couch call and Curme's mammarian discovery of Japanese Choco Party (good, good).
Officially, Mr. Rant is unable to back any society as it represents a possible conflict of interest wit his supermod status, but his presence in the
TRA ranks, was said by a few to unofficially ‘bless’ the newly minted TRA as well as finacially backing the rogue agency by using public grants
It was a close call, but TKAers managed to nip the insurgent TRA in the bud. Voidmaster admitted there was a miscommunication problem between agencies
and they should strive to work together instead of against one another. He even went so far as to hint that the 2 agencies would eventually merge in
Peace talks are currently underway.
Zaphod58, President and Beloved Dictator of controversial ‘rebel’ group TKA, had the last word to say (as usual) about the near fiasco.
‘You're making the assumption that TKA is out to deliberately kill threads. That's simply not even CLOSE to the truth.
TKA is a place for like minded people to go, and for us to do research to find out how to better ourselves, and to become better posters.
We have actual researchers into different members that have very successful threads, to figure out why theirs are so successful, and what we can do to
make OURS more successful.’
