Pinata boy is sort of a public role and one I can deal with, I'm just not used to being attacked via private message. The one I got today was nasty enough, thanks.

I believe it will. By all means, 'ignore' if someone's deserving.

Works reallly quite well, and I find the threads I participate in are much more enjoyable.

Put me on ignore, post that you've done it and I'll try and send you a PM.
Then you can take me off ignore and we'll be friends again.

Here is the evil message I will send you Milo-
"You're ugly and your Mom dresses you funny."

Let's find out.

Milo Christensen
02-09-2011, 07:31 PM
This message is hidden because botebum is on your ignore list.

O.K. - send me something, but leave dear mum out of it, o.k., 'cause she did send me to first day in first grade in knickers in a small mining town in the Upper Peninsula and I got beat up then too.

Milo Christensen
02-09-2011, 07:33 PM
Yes, but I just want to be able to completely ignore this particular forumite and I know that I don't need to open their PM's, just curious.

Why would anyone send you a nasty PM?

Milo, you wouldn't believe how many abusive and offensive messages cap'nRod was sending me on a weekly basis, especially towards the end. Seriously, there were dozens and dozens of them. I usually just scanned them for amusement and then deleted them. Didn't want to ignore, because of "better the enemy you know..." and all that. I figured that letting him vent by sending them to me was valuable in taking up time he might otherwise have spent on the forum at large. Just consider it a public service. :)

If you find out, you could write a well-illustrated booklet that would help a lot of people. So many need instruction on the proper technique. I, too, have been instructed to do this, but with the best will in the world could not comply.

That'd be me.

I'm pretty sure I didn't say anything bannable, just asked him some questions I figured he'd be more comfortable considering in private.

Apparently his memory is a little faulty concerning physical threats to 'liberals'.

As far as the furor he's making over this...meh, whatta maroon.

BTW- If you ever leave me on ignore that long again I'm gonna' send you a nasty PM.

It was from a self-righteous, fundamentally deranged bigot who we all know quite well.
No, not Sam!;)

Milo Christensen

The oddest PM I ever got was from sombody who apologized to me profusely for something I never did find out what it was he had done as the entire thread had been deleted but it must have been pretty savage based on the apology.

Anything negative I have to say will be said in public, subject to the moderator's scrutiny. Anyone, right-left-or center, who sends PM's to berate another forum member is beneath contempt.

Very sad....

What are you laughing at?
Doug, please send The Judge a negative nasty PM!;)

Doug, please send The Judge a negative nasty PM!;)Can't. Scot said I can't bust chops on the new guys if they are being nice. He seems pretty nice and only has 6 posts since August.
Shame he wasted one putting a smiley on one of mine:rolleyes: That'll prolly come back to haunt him.

I got a really nasty PM a while ago from a person still active here. It was a well worded description of my apparent failings, speculation as to how my upbringing contributed to those, and a list of things which were wished to happen to me in the future.
5 minutes later I got another which simply said "Please disregard previous. Meant for someone else", which I guess is all the explanation deemed needed.
Odd.

Y'all got a long danged way to go, puppy.

In fact, I'd say the man was right, and you all are insane.

According to a recent poll (http://forum.woodenboat.com/showthread.php?126615-Where-does-Obama-fall-on-the-political-spectrum&p=2875668#post2875668), most agree that Obama is Right of Center, so your 'resurgence' aims to throw the US Government even further to the Right.

When will you be satisfied?

You your own self, Mr. Milo Christensen, have been quoted as saying on this forum, that you stood ready to [redacted]*. You did a 6-month ban for that, as I recall.

When will you be satisfied?

What is your end goal, your Republican Resurgence?

Will you be happy when Social Security is dead? Medicare? Will you relax when no Senator is capable of speaking for any interest Non-Corporate?

What are the 'limits', Milo?

Where are the boundaries?

I don't believe you've even considered this, much less formed any sort of 'policy'.

You seem to be in the grip of evil, Mr. Christensen, and I think that's sad.

I typically sign my name to the private messages that I send on this forum, but in your case, I believe I shall demur. I don't feel comfortable in my ability to afford shelter to those in my care in the face of your deranged position.

Your pal,

Oznabrag * The phrase redacted involves a dire threat Milo made against all Liberals, and it cost him 6 months in the pokey. 6 months.

I remember what he said because I have reported only two posts on this forum, and I mashed the button on his post within seconds of its being posted. My message to Scot consisted of only one character:
!The only reason I redacted the phrase here is that Milo's done his time and paid his debt.

It seems as though he has not learned anything, however.

That's too bad, too, 'cause I like Milo in spite of his...'condition' and I've told him so on a few occasions. I've welcomed him back to the forum and I've encouraged him to exercise restraint. Hell, I think he even thanked me, once, for having helped him avoid using intemperate language.

So there it is, folks! That's all you need to get on Milo's ignore list.

You should have posted it publicly.

Well, I just did! Maybe a little late but, initially, I didn't want to embarrass the guy.

If he locks or deletes this thread, I'll go start my own thread and lead off with the message posted above.

No votes for Cedar Savage?Cedar was a guy so it doesn't quite make the point I was after.

Just an aside- I went from being one of the most banned forumites to the upstanding (and yet, still, at times, outstanding) model of citizenship that I am today. I'll cut Dutch the same slack I want from others. I'll still harass him about his past but if he can behave then I, of all people, should allow him that.

You should all remember however, that you are only a few beers and a tequilla away from my wrath;)

I thought I'd give Milo a chance to answer my questions without embarrassing himself, but he chose to embarrass himself in completely unforeseen and amusing ways.
