Tappier (also known as TheTapWaterMaster or TheDappierTappier) was an OTer who first started forming sometime in 2013. He is an evangelical Christian who resides in Florida.
He was, for the most part, known as a nice guy, but he did get defensive when irritated, and he has participated in a few controversial threads. He often got in fights about religion, politics, and LGBT issues.
Tappier was also a GCer before that forum was deleted as per the forum merge of 2014, but now he almost exclusively forums in OT now.
The Tappier Army
In the summer of 2015, a fad started where people copied Tappier's outfit: a lampshade and a simple color scheme for the body parts. This fad led to the creation of the group THE TAPPIER ARMY and people started making troll alts with his name in it.
On 6/29/2015, Tappier was terminated for an unknown reason as said by his alt, "They didn't even give me a reason why I was terminated." It was also rumored AamunkoittoAlt got him termed.
He still forumed on ROBLOX afterwards, on a (now deleted) alt account TheTapWaterMaster. He got deleted after posting a controversial reply to a thread. His newest alt, TheDappierTappier, was also deleted.
Tappier's Last Post
On 8/25/2015, Tappier made a super long and religious post on OT announcing that he would quit. It reads:
|“|| My final message here
If you do not like reading threads longer than a Twitter status or cannot stand anything remotely serious or intellectual, this is not the thread for you. If you have come here to mock me or my beliefs, you are only making yourself look like a fool; I will not hold back in this thread, and I hope some of you will read all of this.
Anyway, time and time again I have gotten moderated and deleted for expressing my political and social views here, and I have figured that enough is enough; I have spent four years on this site, and I have a feeling it is time to leave.
Too often I have let bad conversations on here excuse myself for getting angry and agitated with others, while I should instead hold my tongue, as Proverbs 21:23 states "Watch your tongue and keep your mouth shut, and you will stay out of trouble."
Make no mistake; the words you say, ANYWHERE, matter. Watch what you say! It does not matter what site you are on, or if it is a real life conversation, each and every word you say carries weight!
Any of you who balk at what I am saying, you WILL give an account to God one day; Hebrews 4:13 says "Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable."
I do not say these things to be judgmental, but to warn you; I would rather be honest with all of you, than hold back anything and make myself a liar. If that makes me appear judgmental, so be it.
I know the majority of you are likely not thinking about God, death, or anything along those lines, but please, I beg of you, please diligently seek after God; do not live your life separate from Him. Trust in the blood of Jesus to cover your sins and gain your way to Heaven; not your own works. Isaiah 57:12 "Now I will expose your so-called good deeds. None of them will help you."
Do not live your life thumbing your nose at God! You WILL die one day, and you will stand before the Holy God, and what will you have to say for yourself? That you forgot about God, or that you decided not to believe in Him, because of some personal reservation against Him?
God is a loving God, but He is also a Holy God, and without the blood of Jesus covered over you, you cannot be saved, as Hebrews 7:25 "Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save[a] those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf."
I would encourage those of you who are skeptical of what I am saying, to genuinely research the historical reliability of the Bible, and to research the fulfilled prophecies in scripture. Do not make light of this! Personally knowing your Creator is the most important thing in life, and if you need to research the Bible more, before coming to a decision about Christ, please do so! Speaking to Jeremiah, a prophet, in Jeremiah 1:5 God said "I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations."
God knows you better than you know yourself, better than your parents know you, and He loves you more than your parents love you, more than who you might be dating loves you, and more than your future spouse loves you. God created you! He placed you right here, right now, with your specific personality, for reasons beyond your understanding! You might not like the way you are, but God is your potter, and you are His clay, as Isaiah 64:8 says; who are you to question how He has made you, or what He has let happen to you? You are loved exactly the way you are; your personality, your looks, etc. This does not excuse sin or wrong behavior you struggle with, but God loves you because He created you, and God creates everything with a purpose.
Trust me when I say that having a personal relationship with He who created me is far more satisfying than living away from Him, or doing my own thing. God knew me before my life started on this Earth, and I will see Him face to face when my life ends on this Earth, as Revelation 22:4 states "And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads."
Again, it is not my intent to be judgmental, but I need to be honest and say these things to all of you. Some of you I have known on here for a long time, and it would be wrong of me not to warn you, even if you think what I am saying is ridiculous. I urge you to ponder what I am saying, and not automatically dismiss it because of any personal reservation, or any skepticism you might feel; doubt is natural in what you cannot necessarily see, but I have not only witnessed but felt the power of the Holy Spirit, changing my life, and the lives of others, to doubt that the God I serve is not only real, but the one true God.
