Please remember, the only one who can get you banned is you.



I'm really tired of the troll accusations around here.
It's for the mods to decide, calling someone a troll
out of hand is like an ethnic slur on the internet.
Knock it off, that's why we have mods.

Funny how it is the folks who didn't donate money are making the biggest fuss about this. Not to forget the bitter folks who got permanently banned from here are mentally farting the loudest.

And Blizzard cancels Titan.

But there is some good news though. I saved tons of money on car insurance by switching to Geico!

Call the anti-troll defamation league. ;>) I would rather have Trolls than whiners anyways.

Perhaps. So how much trolling do some folks need to do before it gets them banned?

It's catching fish that makes a troll. Besides which, I've seen precious little trolling... plenty of pratting around, whining, moaning, arrogance, mock offence, position-taking, dick-waving and general douche-baggery, very little trolling. If someone is trolling, they are a newb at it.

Bottom line is this thread is about money.
Too some its not important, to others it is.
Its the way of the world, money changes everything.

I've taken quite a beating for asking for donations and then turning around and selling the sites. There is some validity to the criticism. I will say in my defense that the decision to sell the sites wasn't made until early September and I immediately stopped accepting donations as soon as I knew this was a distinct possibility.

Nevertheless, I have decided to either return or give away to charity ALL donations made at any point.

I can't believe the number of people who DON'T want the Wizard to keep their donations. That just seems kinda tacky, IMHO. Hell, one member has even come up with ways to donate the Wizard's own money. Geez.


I resent that I am being made to feel ungrateful for donating $100 to a complete stranger just because he asked for it, and that I then accepted his unsolicited offer to return it. No good deed goes unpunished, I suppose. Fuck you.


If this is what MOSCA is suspended for, suspend me for the 14 days I am due. He is responding to someone (BT9) who should have been gone a long time ago. I am assuming this was from BBB, Misson, Face or one of the mods I respect. BT9 is a total asshole and adds nothing to the site. And deep down you know it.

And if I am wrong on why he was suspended, nevermind..carry on


And Babs..Yes I called it, but it doesn't always make it right


And MOSCA is one of the best members on here. Just look at his contributions.

Yea, it was me ASSHOLE. Mike offered to donate the money I gave to him back. I didn't expect it back, nor did I want it. BUT when he offered it to charity, I am more than willing to give it to a charity I like. You have a problem with that???


TACKY???I don't think so, nor does Mike. Ask him if you are not sure.

I gave the money to someone I RESPECT and will continue to respect.

He offered me the money back and I offered to give it to a LV charity I give too. How much do you give??

I hope you can beat me, but deserving charities deserve it. I have multiple nights per year at my restaurant for local charities, what do you donate?

And I can prove it. You?

I totally agree. I really look forward to MOSCA's posts.
Great report from Atlantis.
B9 is the only member on the entire site I have blocked.
I don't read his posts because they are troll posts.
It wouldn't surprise me if he is the most blocked person on the forum.
As Boz put it BT9 is a total asshole and adds nothing to the site. And deep down you know it.
Give me 14 days also
