    I believe a few of the recipients here have earned it by getting suspended from the forums for certain unmentioned behavior.

    That would be correct. Anyone who has been "terminated" by the webteam, and then reinstated...is eligible for the award.

    Gonzo,
    I believe Kiwi is a purple hydrant recipient.

    As for myself I am making every effort to not get booted. But Hey you never know.

    My brother from the Niagara Falls area has jostled my memory.

    My inadvertent omission of the only known airborne version of a flightless bird has been rectified!

    Sorry, Ian

    Talking Well Crap!!! MY MISTAKE!!!

    MY BAD!!! I thought the purple hydrant was for disciplinary action as far as anything was concerned... I therefore had it in my signiature because during my newbie days I tended to **** the chief off a little too much!!!

    Four years and a few suspensions later... I think I've learned my lesson... ahh well... I shall removeth it if you deem to be necessary cap'n!

    Oh...we are counting them up here...okay...

    I was banned once, which I honestly don't recall why. I think I was mutt-chasing. That's when I received the Purple Hydrant.

    Then I was banned along with E229Lt and Motown, which I believe was the time we had to draw the Webteam into the IACOJ chat to fight them on our territory.
