Yeah, Joel, Steve and Dave didn't know how to handle the trolls very well. I remember Joel posting a video of him throwing a Lego person out of the window while voice-acting that he was gonna "kill himself" because of the shit people were giving him here. He had a bad habit of feeding the trolls whenever he'd get pissed at them.
Zabiela used to post here fairly often, too, and it was always positive. He even uploaded the original DAT tapes of his 2002 EM (without Radio One ads and Pete Tong voiceovers) and shared them here as appreciation for all of the love people were giving that mix. I've still got them on a hard drive somewhere.
Edit: I think Holden posted here, too, no?
You're right, but I will say Joel to a large degree was hilarious with the trolls and he has a good self deprecating sense of humor. I think he had to quit though when the porn star incidences happened as it was just relentless. He's posted a couple of times since but given he's probably on a pony on his yacht, I rightly doubt he has much time for TA.
Yeah, Zabs and Holden did used to post too, but don't forget, these things sometimes start to get "managed" when they get big, even to the point their social media posts are vetted, let alone discussing some catfish's juggs on TA.
