    Well, I finally went and did it. Not only did I get banned from the "other site" today, my entire company is apparently banned since I accessed it from work and now the ip address itself is banned no matter which computer I use so I guess the ip address is on the other side of the firewall.

    I was just feeling a bit testy today so when a member there asked what happened to "the cat", I told him. That reply and his question were instantly deleted. I commented in another thread to him about the deletion being a perfect example of why a hundred or so members had left that forum. Minutes later my ip address was banned. (Of course, feeling a bit testy, I had also called the admin a "psycho" :D)

    So after having been originally banned for being confused with CC in the psycho's mind and then being "unbanned", I am now officially and irrevocably banned on my own merits.

    I don't feel so testy anymore. :)

    Q-Eye, don't feel to bad about it!:)

    You are probably alluding to JPnyc? In 20 years time, computers will have moved on in leaps and bounds but 20 years from now, he will still be a prick.

    Thanks -- I'm not feeling bad about it. The feeling is rather like the satisfaction felt when the task of consuming large amounts of roughage has finally paid its dividend.

    And you're certainly right in your assessment :D

    I'm still a moderator over there - that thread was moved into the Thread Graveyard. I don't know why he (JPnyc) doesn't just delete threads, but he doesn't. And Bokkie's right, he always will be what he is.

    Just an n/c thought; keep in mind (JPnyc) is probably reading all your posts on Bargain...
    In addition, Ann your access may become erased...
    Which maybe of little concern, just my thought...n/c

    He could be amongst us now, as a newbie, watching, waiting, gathering information and sending it back to Chief Prick Elsewhere (aka himself).:eek:

    I'm not concerned, if that's what they want, they can do it - moderation is something you do *for* the forum owners, it isn't a badge of honor or anything. I'm happier to moderate because it helps the community as a whole - and they've destroyed the community over there. :rolleyes:

    Now all they need to do is to start removing members based on inactivity - say, after not posting for 60 days.

    As for N/C's comment about the moderator reading all the posts; I agree. I used to go to all the forums, starting on the Blackberry/Rim, moving on to the Pocket PC, and then to the Palm - contributing or posting as I could. I check over their periodically now, and it seems that the quantity of posts are now a fraction of what they were up until mid-August. So I can certainly see it being much easier to go through all the posts now and ban, oops, I mean moderate.

    That was me! Sorry I was a catalyst in your banishment :eek:
    The 1st thing I noticed was that pdastreet seemed to be dead and I did not see all the familiar posters. I started sniffing around and that's when I discovered Curious Cat had been banned. That was a shocker and why I posted the thread asking why he had been banned.
    Very Happy to have found you'se guys!
