    Just to get booted is BS. To be booted for doing the right thing...now that's what it's all about. Stand -up for what you believe in, don't be afraid of calling a MUTT a MUTT. Don't be thin skinned. Try to remember your Firehouse Kitchen......and Remember this is Firehouse Forums.

    Ray, you are absolutely right. If you are not standing up for what you believe in, getting booted is just being annoying. You have to stand up for what you believe in...

    I seeeeeee!
    I've had it all wrong.
    Here I've been trying to throw them BY the WT. Using a combination of subtle sarcasm, body shots and dark humor, I have attacked formidable opponents who failed to notice that I had just uncovered their stupidity.
    I don't attack them personally; I attack their cause.
    I just gave away my secrets, didn't I?
    Oh well; how about a Fresca?

    Not specific enough George.

    I think you need to name a player or fan specifically, and don't forget to inlcude a derogatory remark about his or her choice in fire trucks. For a big finish, and extra "Man" points, try to include a general comment with at least four of the following topics:

    -Ethnic Heritage
    -Parentage and Questionable Lineage
    -Choice of Religious Denomination
    -Policitical Affiliation as it relates to a fringe/illegal party
    -Sexual Orientation in relation to barnyard animals
    -Mother's choice in combat boots
    -Favorite Fire Truck Model and Colour
    -Use of lights in his POV

    And for the big flourish:

    -Favorite Brand of alcohol in the fire hall


    That'll get you banned. Now for the Purple Hydrant, you need also to justify your actions in defense of a member, the service, or in revealing of a Mutt.

    Since TrojanHorse has dissappeared, and Apparatusfan in suspended, that might be the hard part. There is a guy in the EMS Forum who is promoting code 3 responses with the CD Stereo on max. That might be a good minor target to start with.
    Never argue with an Idiot. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience!

    Bou, you banned over a helmet thread. No freakin way. Never would have guessed it. Didn't you actually end up changing your username becuase of that?

    The way I remember it, Kiwi and Ray are right, with one item that hasn't been mentioned.

    1)Member in good standing of the IACOJ
    2)Doing the right thing
    3)Having a brothers back
    4)Smacking a mutt that deserves it

    Usually it invloves getting banned after fighting to get another member unbanned, because they offended the sensibilities of the WT while "educating" a mutt.

    Many here will remember the great "team brockerage" on the old IACOJ chat site. It was a Sunday Night meeting and Tempie had been banned. Motown went to her rescue with a "Hey Webteam" and the Grannie picture. They came into the meeting and we brokered the re-instatement of all parties, even "usingallhands".

    That is and will always be what it is about.

    The list the Artie posted is as accurate as I can remember:
    Although I don't recall the multiple awards, but Artie is rarely wrong..especially when it concerns IACOJ history and Geo Wendt!

    Bou is a member of IACOJ, I thought he wasn't but stand corrected.

    So we will need more details of the "incident" and then the BOD will take it under consideration.

    I did apologize, over there.

    I should never have doubted your wisdom. Especially when you quoted "Animal House".
