Topic tags/keywords: question

What happened to RantingRich and Garbanzo? Did they run afoul of the site’s rules? I have a suspicion they are the same person given the content of the posts. I’m trying to figure out where is the line that shouldn’t be crossed that would get me kicked off. :). Thanks. Tom

I think Ranting Rich became Garbanzo who became Woodworm1984 and is still on here. I THINK!

Everyone is Yakking about it on this Post http://lumberjocks.com/topics/86778

I’m still trying to figure out why “They” would Delete 4 of my COMPLIMENTARY Posts on Mr. XXX’s Projects without Telling or Advising me that they Were Going To/Did Do It Just because Mr. Psycho XXX and I had a falling out and HE asked “Them” to do it. I enquired as to why but did not receive any kind of a Satisfactory Explanation.

IT SHOUL NOT HAVE BEEN DONE! PERIOD! This “Be Nice To Everyone” is more than enough to TRY and deal with, without this Behind Your Back CENSORSHIP going on also. Is that “Being Nice”?

As for the 1 or 3 Guys It’s a Tad to Complex for me ….LOL..

Lol. I commented on that thread as wel but i got lost in the discussion re IP adresses. I’m new to this site and I’m still trying to figure out the rules of engagement and trying to stay well clear of the line that would get me kicked off the site.

Rick, sounds like he had you “retro-blocked”. You pissed him off so much that he had your previous posts removed! Some people are just sensitive like that. (They also tend to have long “block lists”). Just let it go. It should be enough for you to know that you’re the better man because you would never interfere with anybody’s speaking his mind.

Picklehead:

I had no intention of Pissing him off. I made a statement on one of his comments correcting obviously wrongful information he had posted on someone else’s Post. He went ballistic on site! I told him I had no intention of upsetting him by my correction and apologized if I did so.

I stopped there. He didn’t He sent me a PM that would curl your hair. Most of it was a bunch of lies and I’ve never seen the “F” word used so often on one Huge PM or I’d post it here.

Then he blocked me. I did not block him. By accident I saw that he had My Complimentary Comments removed from 4/5 of his Projects/Postings. He also knew that I had Downloaded a few of his many pictures of himself and demanded that I delete them. I didn’t. He’s also been off of here for quite some time now.

“Some people are just sensitive like that.”. That’s a good enough reason for “Management” to go behind my back and delete My comments at His request? I don’t think so!

I don’t know what “retro block” even means. Yes. He has a long Block List. In case you’re referring to me. I have 4 people blocked. You’re no longer one of them.

“Interfere with anybody speaking their mind”. Unless it’s some sort of “Smart Ass” comment, or once again “Wrongful Information” or just pure BS! Some of us do things like that.

Please excuse me it my Caps bother you. I also do things like that, now and then.

Than you for your concern. ;-0

Yes, That was the way I first received it. In my opinion only and given that I’ve been on here for 5 years, the site is not what it use to be.

We use to have a lot of FUN on here along with a lot of really good technical expertise. The vast majority of the “Good Guys” (Sorry …LOL..) have left here.

I have no desire to contribute to whatever negative aspects are, or might be contributing to that.

I can go on YouTube and let loose on all the Trolls, use all the “off color” words and expressions that I care to.

Good Therapy, I guess ;-}

Thank you for your retraction. That was very decent of you and much appreciated. The sign of a true Gentleman. I Hope that wasn’t an insult. ;-}

Stay safe and healthy.

Oh Boy. Here we go again.

368 Days does not equal 5 Years. ”Back then is when people would say they would never block anybody. My how times change…;)” Or does the ;) indicate that this is suppose to be some sort of a “Pun”?

YOU also are no longer Blocked. Maybe I …......Never mind.

People do leave and come back. Just sayin.
I could have been around at the time Abbott was, and Neil, and so-Cal, and Dave Richards, and many many of the others that are no longer here.
Way before Stumpy.
Or I could have looked on the jocks page and be making this all up…;)

It was awesome when he tried to sneak onto knotscotts rigid post. THAT was PRETTY FUNNY if I MUST say so.

He may be gone for now, but he is one persistent bastard.

Rick, Remain calm. These VIs just do stuff like that to get a response. If it works, they’ll do it again! And again!

Rick is remaining amazingly calm. I find it calming.

PS: What’s a VI? (hope I didn’t just set myself up)

VI = village idiot

Iwud4u, It’s directed at those who just aren’t happy unless they are kicking the hornet’s nest.
