Didn't someone in this very thread say that Orbit has threatened another Niner?
Yes. He threatened Irascian, said he was going to set fire to him. Haven't seen Irascian of late ... I know Orbit has a short-time ban, but he is offensive and threatens people, he has caused more than 1 person to leave C9.
