“Implement Chat Martial Law on these scumbags! Implement Chat Martial Law right now, for Christ's sake!”
The ultimate flexing of Ghost's nuts, Chatroom Martial Law is the result of Ghost ordering the Engineer to lock down the Chatroom so that other users can't send each other messages. The messages were however, at least on the BTR Chat, still visible to Ghost.
When Chatroom Martial Law was disbanded, the chatroom instantaneously turned into a dick-waving contest to see who can type "first" the fastest.
Sources of irritation which caused Ghost to implement Chatroom Martial Law included:
- Spamming of Ron Paul
- Spamming in general, or 'Scrolling' as Ghost used to refer to it
- People laughing at him, especially after a succesful troll.
- Calling him a racist/Jew/hambone
- Being trolled to the point of cans.wav
- Playing audio splices of him about his family
Ghost also locked down the Chatroom after the broadcast ends in a rage-quit in order to prevent people from talking about him after the broadcast. Starting sometime in late February-mid April 2012, the BTR chatroom was removed and has not returned after the Return. This meant the end of Chatroom Martial Law from 2012 until 2018.
As of February 5th, 2018, Ghost has begun implementing Chatroom Martial Law again regularly on his new TCR Discord, often in response to the sick names of Chatroom Shoutouts.
