    If you put in a wireless network, you could shorten your list even further. Maybe by 2.

    Censored?

    I am obviously being censored. I couldn’t understand why at first, but now it seems it is because of a post I made to An Affair To Remember. It was really a tongue in cheek remark, which apparently was not well received, since Val gave a very long, very defensive answer about her phones, etc, etc. I have to admit this would have been a breech of the rules, since what I wrote did not contribute in any meaningful way to the thread. I have seen numerous other similar posts before, but I think what is at play here is that I (unintentionally) offended a paying advertiser. I cannot pretend to know what daily pressures Val operates under, any more than I can expect her to understand my daily work issues. I think she overreacted, but again, we’re all human, and some days, some moments, things strike us the wrong way. I do apologize if this is what indeed caused this issue. If I remain censored, or banned, so be it. I know I have been a positive contributer to this forum, and would like to continue. I enjoy the diversion during the day, but really, it’s not that big a deal if my dialogue in this community ends. I have been in this hobby for quite a while, know where to get what I need, so in the end, other members may lose the benefit of some of the things I contribute, be it some good clues, or just answering another’s question about the hobby, something I enjoy doing. I respect your right to do what you choose with this board and it’s members, and I will not engage you nor anyone else in any kind of verbal warfare. Slinky, I usually like to take the “high road”, which I am trying to do now, and I hope in kind you will allow me to contribute again as I have in the past. If not, life goes on.

    the thread title bothers me a bit here, shouldnt it be why I havent posted in a while. If one stops posting, how can you post a thread?

    Well then damn I musta fucked up twice, cause I sure as hell remember posting something that was deleted then reposting it....guess I broke two rules..hence the banning...either way, it's still the same whether I realize I broke the rule or not, or even know which one I broke, or think I didnt break one at all it's the moderators show. You live and you learn...

    JP- I obviously didnt even know why I was banned, so I still think passing thru and lurking every now and again is still my safest course of action...I just couldntl help myself this time around.

    I'm one like slinky mentioned, who either has a hard head (not that one) or is just plain stupid. I made a post. He deleted it, my dumb ass reposted what was deleted...and was BANNED.

    To me it doesn't matter with whether I really did break a rule or not. It's not my board, all of us providers and hobbyists are merely guests on Slinky and Allen's board..If you dont agree with how they run it there are other places to go.

    Because this is a open form,cool, go ahead and state your opinion but again what's the thrill in taking cheap shots at the moderator? Especially in post after post its obvious that what you have to say isnt changing their opinion? No one can force another person to agree with them...one of the great things about these boards is that everyone doesn't agree.

    Just my two cents. I've reverted to lurking, I figured with my hard head it was the safest course of action.

    This is surely a tongue-in-cheek comment, right? Sometimes I feel like puking - the obvious ass kissing and shiling that goes on on UG.

    At least, even though you are "dead" wrong on this issue, you haven't completely lost your sense of humor.

    P.S. Go to bed. LOL

    keep saying it.... maybe you'll convince yourself eventually... because it's not working on anybody else.

    However, (remarkably) you (slinky) left up the posts that completely refutes what you had said. It's actually quite funny watching you try to ignore how you were debunked. You can yell "stupid" and any other childish insult you want. That's basically all you've got.

    Those who might think as you do, will disagree with me. The majority who know you have made errors of judgment will silently agree with me. Silently, because you have developed quite a vindictive reputation.

    There are many, many of us intelligent enough to understand the difference between the truth and what a "webmaster" says. There are plenty of us who know that a webmaster is just another person; fallible and capable of mistakes.
