I never did understand this leaving and farewell stuff. For God's sake its an internet forum. How do you leave? If you don't like it you just stop clicking on the link that brings you here. That's not leaving.

It reminds me of getting the cold shoulder from your wife and when you ask what is wrong, the answer is always the same. "Nothing is wrong!"

Drude was banned for 6 months. God knows why. :(

How do you know it was six months? Banning seems to be a regular thing round here......but people are usually back after 24 hours.

No kidding?

For a farewell thead? That doesn't break any rules does it?


So a Bobbo can post a link to porn and administration hems and haws and RUNS A FREAKING POLL to determine if he should be banned.

And Druid posts a farewell and gets 6 months?


That makes A LOT of sense.


The term "personal playground" comes to mind with regard to the way the site is moderated.


Might as well start the countdown clock on disappearing this thread too. :rolleyes:

There's more to it than just a farewell thread. So, everyone should just chill.

Well, I talked to Drude this evening, and you were no small part of it.

:hmm: After tonight, I don't see what's left here to like. Many good members are gone. Apparently that's partly my doing. And I can't even make a nice thread without getting dogged.

Drew, if I may, I'd like to give you a small bit of advice.

First of all, I'm sure you're a decent guy. The thing is this though. You recently rubbed a lot of people here the wrong way. Older people than you. Hell, it happens. It's inevitable, in fact. A teenager is going to rub grown men the wrong way, and vice versa.

I ain't that old, and I ain't that young, so I'm saying this as a guy in transition between two age groups.

There are people here with kids of their own at home that are your age. They deal with teenage crap at home on a daily basis. They don't really feel like doing it here. With that in mind, with some of your more controversial comments still fresh in people's minds, members are going to take a thread that you created in sincerity with a grain of salt. Members will be harder on you than they will be on a guy with three posts. That too is inevitable.

So here's the advice: Quit making so many threads for a while. It opens you up to ridicule, and them up to punishment. In other words, not much positive will come from it.

INSTEAD, keep posting to existing threads. In a reasonable, well thought out, and logical way. Earn that respect, buddy. Believe me it will come. Wanna make a new thread in the Backstage? Make one about a topic that people can get into hashing over. Don't make a bury-the-hatchet, feel good thread just for the hell of it.

Keep your head down and earn that respect, IT WILL WORK.

On a final note, this is one of the longer posts I've ever typed, and it is all about giving honest advice to one of the more hated members here (no offense, but I believe you can handle the truth.) And I'm a notoriously disagreeable bastard. :laugh2:

PS:

No matter how pissed you ever get, if you insult someone with a lot of life experience and knowledge like KP or Geo (just for example), the wagons will circle, and you will be on the outside of said circle. Keep your cool and THINK before typing.

Unfortunately, cwilly, yours is about the 10th effort to reach him. Falling on deaf ears. I delivered this same sermon to him two months ago in a PM. He implied that he was sorry and would "do better", then commenced to mock us at every opportunity. In the chatzy room, he crowed about how he was deliberately trying to stir us up. Such a shameful, disruptive individual. Many others (who are no longer here), attempted to do the same thing with similar results.

Give it a rest already, you sound like a bloody broken record!
You are getting as bad as what you accuse Drew of, even when he was banned you kept talking about him.

Drew did a thread, Drew did a thread..so bloody what!!!
Ignore him!
Why don't you put your efforts into some of the others around here who don't put into this place and post nothing but nonsense?

It's easy to come here and bash a younger member or less popular members isn't it, but won't say negative things about someone else more popular doing same thing.

Give it a rest..all you are doing is making drama and letting this go on and on and on. You are stirring shit trying to make people hate him more.

I agree that he needs to stay out of the limelight for a while, but geez...you are waiting for him to put a step wrong or do something you don't like.

There are far worse things on here and in life than to be so friggin bothered about a 15 yr posting a thread or whatever.


Stop bringing up chatzy too because that is not all facts and he wasn't only one that said things like him.

Rant over

Sir Cookie:

Always remember that there are two heroes in that picture. The lone figure standing tall in the face of oppression, and the man driving that first tank who bucked God-knows-what orders in order to not run over said lone figure.


Why Drude was banned, I have no clue. That cat is funny, profane, and heartfelt. He is a human Johnny Cash song around here.

I don't know him, but I will miss his posts. His banning is a loss to the once irreverant spirit of this strange (getting stranger every day) forum.

With all respect to you, I blame Drew for most of the problems here. I won't stop until he's gone.

Sorry.
