    I would actually kind of like to see you back. I am not really sure why you got banned unless it was for the link thing

    Since you seem to know everybody over there, and are apparently the leading authority on journalistic integrity, why don't you go and find out yourself?

    I have no interest in feeding a feud. It's too bad you guys are so bitter.

    I posted that information out of respect for Electric Chair, whose posts I enjoyed reading. I thought it was odd that he was banned. But I owe no explanation to a third party, despite your high-and-mighty rhetoric. I owe you ZERO explanation.

    If you're so upset about being banned from a message board - especially one that is associated with a major newspaper and its advertisers (translation: higher standards than an "independent" website) - then you have much bigger problems than being banned from a message board.

    If it hurts your feelings so much, take it up with someone who can help you.

    I agree. I enjoy Leisure's posts, and it would be shame if he were to never post at the UT again.

    Nope. This is a fine board.

    But I can post the word "****" on this board. Can't do that on the other one. Make of it what you will.

    To me this translates into a higher standard. People actually use the word **** in real life.

    Here, it is not a crime to speak naturally so long as it is not a blatant all out personal *** attack and even then, **** gets heated but that pushes the envelope of thought when managed correctly.

    Welcome to the boards and to get a real taste of the lifestyle, you gotta check out a tailgater and the carne of the gods. I am one of the hosts so you are welcome anytime. I do not play favorites on where anyone posts and all are considered to be equally worthless. :lol: :abq2: Party on !!! :icon_toast:

    I have to laugh at the so called "higher standards" of some other boards...

    Allowing the cuss word filters, such as sh*t, or the intentional misspelling of a cuss word is really no different and does not translate to any higher standard... ;)

    If your conversations in real life were sponsored by corporations, you'd have to deal with their standards.

    I looked for you guys before the Bolts-Raiturds game. I couldn't find you...are you still partying in G3? I heard the Carne is the **** but I couldn't find anyone randomly blowing a trumpet. Oh well, maybe at the Baltimore game...

    I didn't take it as such.

    I simply took it as a statement of fact.

    Or is Bolttalk not more lenient?

    I mean, the evidence is right in my sig, something that started this entire thread to begin with.

    This isn't really up for debate.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=standards

    more restrictions = higher "standards"

    There's less restrictions here.

    Let's not get uptight over semantics.

    The UT has higher standards, but this board still rocks.

    Holy **** am I cracking up here about all this crap....see....:icon_rofl:

    Here I am just a casual poster 3000 miles away in good ol NJ and didn't realize all of the fuking politics involved in this crap. EC absolutely got hosed over at the UT and I also have had very good discussions with him over there and was shocked :icon_eek: to see that he was banned. I still cruise both sites and engage in both but definitely took a liking to BT without even knowing everything that goes on in the background. My favorite part is to more or less stir up trouble if I can at the UT but obviously am flying under the radar. For what it's worth, BT is by far the better board and I started over there probably 4-5 years ago and can't stand it now.

    Good up the good work BT!!!:icon_toast::icon_party:

    Cute.

    This is why I don't usually post in ANY OT section.

    And this is why I have never posted on this board up to this point.

    Spoken like someone who's bitter about being banned, and is posting to draw attention from a bunch of posters who've been banned too.

    Like it or not, Jeff and his mods have a job to do. If anything, you should complain that they didn't pull the plug on you right after you were warned. Seems that you're angry they didn't extend you the courtesy of sending you a bunch of hollow threats before pulling the trigger.

    If you had to pay to participate, you'd have a case. But it's a free site, and they have their own issues to deal with.

    And so what? There are other mesaage boards - like this one - that operate differently. Plus, you seem to have found a lot of like-minded posters over here. Sounds like a win-win to me.

    :icon_rofl:

    Yeah, I'm trembling. I'm sure he is too.

    Not necessarily. :no:

    The almighty buck does speak but a site can chose to have its own stardards which then and only then, corporate sponsors can chose to accept or not.

    In other words, why should the sponsor run the site with their standards or anyone for that matter? I see it differently. :yes:

    This site got to this point without any one sponsor laying down a bunch of standards or the infamous unwritten rules from my vantage point and not that I am anyone special but I have spoken with the owners of this site on numerous occassions and they have never hinted this was a concern or issue. I think that is cool because it allows Eric (Thumper) and crew do their thing unrestricted and unemcumbered and are only limited by their twisted minds. :yes:

    WE are between F-3 and G-3 for the gaters...listen for the trumpet or ask when in the area and most homies start to point and say "the crazy mo-fo is over there" :icon_toast:

    I'd rather not end up in a long debate about this making this thread another 20 pages long, but it simply boggles my mind how anyone can not comprehend why EC was banned.

    I'm not a mod over there, have not been involved in any discussion with a mod over there in regards to this subject, hell, I haven't even read one EC post at the UT in quite some time (been away from the Chargers board there for awhile) and I can still clearly see what got him banned...simply by reading his own words in this very thread.

    Generally if you go through extraneous efforts to circumvent forum rules you'll get yourself banned, no matter what forum you're on...even here.

    This is not something that's unique to the U-T forum, circumventing forum rules...especially after a moderator takes down your signature...will get you banned anywhere you go.

    Now, I'm cool with EC, i've met him at the bolttalk tailgates on more than one occasion, but it simply boggles my mind how anyone can not understand why he got banned.

    Are there double standards there? Maybe, maybe not, but he certainly went about this the wrong way once the mods (well, the admin via the mods) started deciding that EC shouldn't have LLV linked in his signature.

    As someone who works in an industry where my salary is dependent entirely on advertising revenue, this makes no sense to me....other than to say it's Eric's board and he can do as he pleases with it. He doesn't have multiple layers of management, shareholders, wire services, subscribers, and advertisers to answer to.

    I did not know all this **** was happening as well until I started talking to the Bolttalk brothers when this site had 200 members and when I got axed at the UT.

    The bottom line is this site is a bad word to the larger sites because it takes away posters which equal hits and revenue from advertisers. Too effing bad.

    It felt like being herded like cattle - fuc that. :tdown:

    If you only knew half the stories ..... anyway .... screw all that noise. I advised Eric to worry about his own backyard and fuc the rest. No need to worry about any site other than this one because the politics of one-upsmanship can be best accomplished by blowing all the other sites doors off the hinges.

    Why use a rear view mirror ?

    Party on !! :icon_party::icon_toast: :bolt:

    I'm not banned at that forum - at least not yet.

    You made an assertion here, and now claim it was false. Further, you act like you're just a fun loving guy who was doing everyone a favor by spreading (allegedly) false rumors, and that no one should have any interest in your rumor mongering. What kind of logic is that?

    Spread complete bullshit, then say it's bullshit, then whine because people want to know the source of your bullshit? And you are a "contributor" to the UT website and paper? Wow.

    Everyone's "takes" on forums are weighted for merit based on many things. Their history on the forum, people's knowledge of them as a poster and person, and the quality of their posts over time. Your very first post on this forum is (alleged) bullshit that was pure rumor mongering. Great start, pal.

    Instead of spreading your venom back at people who are asking about the (alleged) bullshit you posted, maybe you should be asking the source of the bullshit about it. I've never understood people that protect liars, but that just plays into ones own character.

    Well it should not make sense to someone who needs to adhere to a sponsor or a contractors standard to make a living but as you rationalized, the topic is this forum and how it differs from a larger forum who NEED that revenue to survive.

    Edit: actually it is about EC getting away with **** and getting busted and singled out like a common street hoe. :)

    That is your misinterpretation of a post that wasn't directed at you...and was phrased as a "maybe this happened" scenario. Next time, I'll just send a PM to keep you and the rest of the "reality police" out of it.

    If you take a message board that seriously, you have MAJOR problems. Seek help. :abq2:

    Dude,

    purposely circumventing forum rules on a message forum, especially while a mod or admin is in the process of trying to prevent you from doing so, is probably the 2nd worst thing you can do on a forum and one of the quickest ways to get yourself banned...on any forum. (posting porn on a forum that doesn't allow nudity probably being the worst/fastest)

    I don't see why people can't grasp this concept.

    And I can't believe that in 268 posts I seem to be the only one who does. (granted I haven't read every one of those posts.)

    Probably not. Sounds like they're cracking down on violations of the TOS over there. Maybe EC expected special treatment because he's a former mod.
