    Default I demand a recount

    I for one enjoy the almost daily laughs till my sides hurt that he provides.

    Come on he provides the afternoon Soaps comedy of the forums.

    It'd kind of weird. It seemed like he had actually calmed down and was kind of poignant in alot of his posts. If you look back at his recent posts, they were all kind of benign.


    And I will say it again...if you want those two fools to go away, ignore them, just like I have, and they will eventually wither away.

    If I had to take an educated guess it would be because he is posting links to other forums and directing people there.

    His pot stirring and "everybody hates the west coast" stories had really calmed down. I even agree that over the last week he has been fairly positive on here.

    It appears the Webteam is on a rampage .... whole slew of threads with posts from the WT announcing the closing of that thread due to inactivity within the past 2 months.

    I'm sorry, but that's just phucked.

    Say what you will, but he did offer a different perspective.

    I wonder what got him tos'd?

    I had my battles with bou, and frankly, without putting him on ignore, had chosen simply to ignore him and not respond to his posts. I would not however in any way advocate for his removal. While I found him an annoying crybaby at times he is entitled to his opinion. Just as I am entitled not to listen to it anymore.

    I have found the heavy hand of banishment to be used indiscriminantly and many times without any real justification. Especially when you have permanent trolls here who NEVER seem to suffer the rath of the web team.

    But in the end the reality is simple. It is their web site and they can run it however the hell they please, and obviously they do.

    Default Bou????

    I'm shocked....I know Bou and there's not a mean bone in his body. We are all free to voice our opinions and we might not all agree....but this is ridiculous. There are others who have been harsher and more vindictive than Bou....WEB TEAM GET YOUR $HIT TOGETHER!!

    And how does one go from being praised with numerous comments like this:

    "one of the best threads we've had in a while. Props to Bou, for starting it. Congrats, to everyone else for the postive inpute.
    to getting booted off the forums???

    His last post was to inform us of a LODD of a friend.

    I think someone got their panties in a twist and whined to the webteam. I think I know who. Still catching up on email notifications though.

    Default Wtf

    Bou was bounced for making a reference to another site. Are you kidding me....there are others who direct members of this site to other sites and THEY WERE NOT KICKED OFF. I think that having two standards is crazy. Those who make the comments like "Good Riddance" (Vinnie), "Troll" (Vinnie) have no idea who this individual is.
