postal and the rust forum was a semi-popular thread created by Natrox that started with a user known as ZN2012 being banned, creating an alt, getting that alt banned, and creating a video on his YouTube channel where he muttered the famous words "Now that's just some tyrannical, Russian type style bullshit right there."[1] The thread amassed over 500 funnies, and is filled with artwork and videos about postal, the Rust forum section, banning, or all of them combined. Many people started giving others gold, giving the 2.50 half to postal via Boostar. ZN2012 even came into the thread, comparing Facepunch to Nazi Germany.[2] He even created some alt accounts, several of which are listed below, including one entitled NaziPostal.[3] Most of the thread is posting Rust idiots, talking about postal and his bans, and making artwork for postal and his banning sprees.

Events

One event that was discussed in this thread was the mass bannings by postal, where he fills up the entire event log from bans, a lot of them in the Rust Server forum section. It got to the point where the ticker started slowing down due the mass influx of bans.

One such mass banning occured on the 13th of January, 2014, where postal gathered all the ban-worthy threads and livestreamed his banning of each and every single one of them, with the intent of fully covering the Event Log.[4][5] He managed to successfully pass the 250 cap of the log,[6][7] and by the end of it, he had made 92 temporary bans and 10 permabans, for 102 total, among the many closed threads.[8] The stream footage was later used to create a video titled "postal and the rust forum ~chapter 2~", by Natrox, uploaded a few days later,[9][10] prompting the thread's renaming to "~chapter 1 and 2~" as to reflect on both the videos.

J!NX changed his title to a screamer, saying "FREE RUST KEYS/VAC UNBAN" or something along the lines of that.

Hogie bear would go on to create a Source Filmmaker short inspired by the goings-on in the thread, named Postal's daily routine.[11]

EddieLTU made a map for Counter Strike: Source that was inspired by the events in the thread and called it de_armpit.[12]

NateDude created a mod for Cave Story, known as Rust Story.[13]

Many collaborated on a title for Postal that was a fake VAC unban/Rust key request site. Upon submitting, you were given a Steam error screen with postal's ass.

The video that started it all, "RUST MMO Life time Ban For Posting a Question", was deleted from YouTube, and for some time was basically lost. Fortunately, on the 10th of October, 2017, Natrox re-uploaded the video on his channel.[14]

ZN2012 Alts List

On the 20th of May, 2015, ZN2012 and all of his alts were unbanned for Garry's Birthday.[15]
