I enjoy thinking that a bot might be programmed to report any DLR content.
I didn't say it Jaron lanier did, but I'll delete my post so I won't trigger anyone...
How hard is it for you people NOT get suspended from a guitar forum?
Ironically, that meme would be enough to do it if it was directed at the wrong (one) person.
Aha, but see! Unlike some, I'm careful with my semantics.
Therefore a potentially suspension worthy post to one, is in fact a harmless jab at no one in particular.
In the immortal words of nurk: "**** that **** you ****ing m***er****ers and **** you too. You wanna **** with the ****ing nurk? Well, just **** off ****er."
Not really Mike, I’ve yet to read any positivity in any of your posts. It’s not the semantics; it’s the tone you set, and here on TGP it’s not just TAG that knows tone.
After being here for years and never banned, I was suspended twice in a three week period. In my opinion, I was writing things I had always written before, and I was also banned for things I see other members doing every day and not getting suspended. Both were done without any warning or discussion, just bam! suspended. Then when I tried to inquire about it, I never got an answer. I don't think what was done was right, but how does one argue? Either you want to be here and participate or not, so you have to accept the treatment, but it's clear to me that rules are not applied equally across all members. Some type of warning would be a decent thing as well.
If you don't see me for a while, I got banned for making this post.
It's a fair bet tha this thread will lead to some suspensions.
ban the 9oz pour!!
,,,Exactly the way I got sent to Beleview,,, what I thought was funny and harmless,,, wasn't,,
Treat the creeps as I do, with unmistakable, cutting disdain, yet just enough ambiguity to leave the creeps scratching their heads a bit. It's right out of the a-hole playbook, which is appropriate for the deserving few.
It's significantly exacerbated when you are one infraction away from a permanent vacation.
The Canadian Guitar Forum has a Political Pundit section that is no holds barred, but you have to ask to be able to see it and post there. But once in you can swear or make fun of politicians or religions. Nice to have that option.
I had to suspend Peterson and Scherzer before, they got a bit out of hand. I think I've been benched twice.
My vacation came after I posted a 4 letter acronym for someone who deletes an entire thread when it goes sideways ---you'd have to google...COMMONLY used internet vernacular; pm for laugh.
,,, Honestly,, I kind of take it like a speeding ticket, if/when I get one, I figure I speed all the time and finally have to pay the ticket,,,
Funny you should mention it. I had a post pulled and at lightening speed I might add. The official reason was that I violated the rules about 'going after another member'.
While I did cite this 'fellow members' adaptation of a certain recent trend in male grooming I made sure to compliment his expertise as well.
My take is I 'went after' the 'wrong' member. So now I don't post much anymore or even hang around for that matter. I used to really respect the mod who pulled my post. Guess everyone has their faults. So yeah, you could say my attitude has changed, but not necessarily for the better.
