Why is it that Jay is the one you think would get suspended.  He responded to the condemnation from the other user.  In a forum where suspensions happen the starter would get suspended, or both.

If someone wants to create a new thread on the subject of ZG leaving the C14 fold they can.  They can also create a thread on his new bike in this board.

If that was addressed to my post, then here is my reasoning. Jay called the other poster a name first. The other poster said things about Jay's new bike but not about Jay himself. Jay called him a tool, the tool..er the other poster called Jay a sissy, then Jay referenced the tool the other poster treating others like an a-hole and then quoted some names that the tool other poster had been called on another forum. Jay then called the tool other poster a tool again and recommended that he stop acting like an idiot. Then some others (including myself) sorta piled on...that's when the thread was locked instead of suspending anyone.  Perhaps I'm wrong, maybe they would both get suspended, but I thought a thread lock was the way to go. The only side I'm taking here is that a thread lock is better than a suspension as it targets the conversation rather than the individuals. Now as to the other stuff, should a warning be first or the thread lock too quick.....well I don't pay any dues here so I don't have much of a say ....I think of this place being run fairly evenhandedly by a benevolent dictator (and his trusted assistants) who could just pull the plug on all of this at anytime. I wouldn't want that to happen.

This is getting hilarious. Wonder if ZG ever gets embarrassed by all the adulation being heaped on him. (bromance, man-crush or whatever clever label the kids use these days....)

I didn't realize this was a suspension thread. I would really like to have a new one but I don't do enough to justify it. I guess I should put more effort into it. I'm due for a vacation.

Wait a minute- are you saying that that 'other forum' is a poor value?    :rotflmao:

Then again, this year I lit my woodstove with 37 $1 bills as tinder and no one insulted me so I think I have found a better way to spend $37 myself.  ;)

You are incorrigible.  (could be the word of the day but it only lasts until midnight)

((of a person or their tendencies) not able to be corrected, improved, or reformed:)

I just can't think of any sentence with the word incorrigible in it except this one.

Maybe something like this: I tried to get my son to do better in school all year long but in the end, he proved to be "non- incorrigible".

Like 'infamy', and example would be "Hey Billy, can you carry these groceries infamy".

You folks are hilarious!!  :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:


For those of you that said the kind words thanks so much, that's awesome and very appreciated brutha's n sista's!  :chugbeer:


As for my goodbye thread getting locked without even a warning post on the thread or a pm to me did seem quite odd IMO... I would have thought that my tenure here and all the content I added after the big crash a couple years back would have given me a little more respect than that, but I guess not. Not sure what I did to piss off Jim so bad but I'll take the lock and attitude as a shot across the bow to move on, so I will...  :-\



For anyone intersted, I started a for sale thread over on the COG forum for a bunch of odds and ends I'm selling, link below:

Take care folks, been nice getting to know you all over the years! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  :grouphug: :chugbeer:
