I'm starting the countdown on the 'you know
who clock', to see how long it takes him
to be offended and concerned about the
2F suspension.



His business has been down lately...not many suspensions to be upset about!!

If what 2F said was worthy of a suspension certainly this from sally was.

" but, imo
Alan M plays the part of a ploppy for attention only

that is so sweet
Mully"

Ploppy is an offensive word usually referring to dumb gamblers. I believe someone may have gotten in trouble for calling someone that.

If by saying, " ____ plays the part of _____ for attention only", is ok. We can all start using that to make Veiled insults and backhanded compliments.

Unfortunately he may actually have a valid gripe this time. I'm Thinking someone complained and that's what lead to the suspension. I seriously cant imagine the Wizard is searching threads looking for this petty stuff.



The insult was directed at me, but I certainly did not complain about it. Just FYI.

The suspension was very quick. He made the post and then his name was red right away. Wizard must have been browsing the thread or something.

I think one like that is most likely to get you nailed if the admin happens to be reading the thread...I agree that looking for "borderline" violations would be mostly a waste of time reading crap like the DI/No DI threads (I participate in them, but not much is ever decided or proven...). The Wizard has contributed to that particular thread, so he likely pays some attention to it.

I sense that the baiters and haters are champing at the bit waiting for me to dauntlessly defend our latest unfortunate suspendee. Before I continue, let me make sure I'm in the proper thread. Yup. Discussion About The Suspension List. We're good.

What shall we discuss, baiters and haters? The unblemished record of TwoFeathersATL, member in good standing since May 22, 2013? Concerns by some members of uneven enforcement of the rules? The constant and constantly ignored baiting of yours truly? The fact that a guy posts in Korean and gets banned for dropping a link while a guy drops two links in a blog and doesn't get banned? We still can't flag blogs. Is English the only language accepted here? The fact that a banned member returns under his umpteenth name, makes demands, gets them met and gets his posts left up for 24 hours so everyone has a chance to read them?

I'm on the road until tomorrow and finding it difficult to post. Please bear with me as I have someone at home assist me with today's posts.

TwoFeathersATL was suspended for posting "That's a pretty lame response, even for you". I believe he was okay until the "even for you". It was a harmless slip where he thought he was carefully attacking the writing and not the writer. Was it another "gotcha" moment? You decide. The writer, who handles himself quite well in that spirited thread, has told us that he didn't complain. I'm not going to put him on the spot by asking him if he was offended. It's another example of the written word versus the spoken word. If spoken it wouldn't have been given a second thought.

TwoFeathersATL is an acquired taste for me. He can be quirky and at times seems to talk in riddles. Like him or not, the man is one of the few here who doesn't have a mean bone in his body. That's why I called his suspension unfortunate. Was his suspension justified? You decide. Did it meet the letter of the law? You decide.

I am confident that TwoFeathersATL will take this like a man. He won't call an administrator at their private residence and cry like a baby while begging to have his suspension overturned. He'll serve it with his head held high and he'll serve it with no shame.

Is the forum better off because of this suspension? You decide.

Reminds me of those articles/videos about 9/11. It'd say something like: "On flight 7361, there were 216 passengers. If you divide 7361 by 216, then add 666 (the Devils number), then add by the number of days it's been since the pilot bought his new car....you get 911! COINCIDENCE? YOU DECIDE!!!!!"

Am I considered a baiter or hater just for expecting you to make a comment? Just wondering...

I found it funny that a member who thinks a thread shouldn't exist posted something about a suspension of a member in the that thread...

Gosh, by the time we decide, he'll be back
from his cruel ordeal, and then what. 3
days with no posts from 2F, oh the horror,
the horror.

What's wrong with you.

After putting minimal thought into it I've come to a decision. Yes.

Oh God no, RonC. Can I say God? Is that allowed?

After I posted I thought there may be a chance that you took it that way. I was sincerely hoping that you wouldn't and am so glad you asked. You are neither a baiter nor a hater. I think we all know who the baiters and haters are even though some pretend not to.

I trust you haven't forgotten your own suspension on 9-24-14. That was a puzzler. Seven days for a first "offense". You may recall that I had questions about that.

Not only does this thread exist, I believe it is still number one. How sad is that? As long as it does exist, I will continue to post as I see fit and one or two will continue to bait me as they see fit. They will do so without fear of repercussions.
