    Hey Buff, read Gonzo's post on the other site. He accepts what happened and it really shouldn't be dredged up. Crap happens, and most of us have been where he is a time or two, ya take your lumps and life goes on. In the big scheme of things it's really not a big deal. He got 10 days and then he's back.

    When did the ban come?

    If you guys want to know the details this is not the way to go about getting them. You are only going to get yourselves into poo poo with WT.

    In reality, WebTeam does not have to justify themselves to any of us. They have their rules and boundaries, when they are crossed they have to enforce them no matter who the person is. For the most part they are fair, and do respond to you when you ask them for an explanation regarding their reasoning, when it pertains directly to you.

    If you want to know what happened ask Capt G., I'm sure he would be more than happy to answer your questions.

    Trust me, I've made similar inquiries in other situations and I can assure you that you won't get anywhere. Don't waste your time.

    Now, this banning is news to me too, I don't know what happened, when, where, or how. Would someone enlighten me?

    I now have a new ambition. I must get a beat down so that I may add a purple hydrant to my award collection.

    As I am no longer a firefighter (that may change in a year or two) alas I will have to receive a Purple Caduceus.

    People's skin is way too thin. Don't criticize me, don't call me a name, don't point out that I am wrong, don't do this, don't do that.

    WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH! Cry me a freaking river.

    Why dontcha PM him and ask him yourself?
    I have found the PM function won't work during your period of atonement. And even worse, no dessert.

    Well at least he has Cheffie's Recipe for those Guinness Brownies over on the other site. That'll tide him over, and give him something to do while he sitting in the corner.

    Does someone that gets "banned" or a 10 day timeout get to keep their screen name when they come back? I did a member search and it looks like they pull your screen name out of the list altogether

    He is a Captain on the Marlborough, MA fire department.

    I hope that this comment was not offensive to anyone.

    Realizing I may have missed something through editing and/or censoring, I have seen several very offensive posts on the boards. Some of those topics have been allowed to continue for days. What makes this incident so different???

    I still have no idea what thread and events caused this so I'm totally in the dark.

    You only get banned if someone complains/reports your posts. So he must have ****ed someone off enough that they reported him. Webteam then decides whether it violates their T.O.S. and they act accordingly. #'s of posts, how long your posting, memberzone or not, who you are does not matter. It's their sandbox, play by their rules.

    OK. I see the thread where cry-baby went off on a tangent about gonzo and some others. However, I fail to see how that had anything to do with his banning. I'm still lost.
