    Default Just got off the Phone with Rum Pirate.

    Seems he's ticked off someone enough to get banned for a month. Source was the Snoop Dog thread.

    Had a pleasant chat, as is always the case when two forum members connect in real life he was charming, fun guy, we got along. I love his caribbean lilt, I hope he appreciated my Newyorkeese

    Anyway he asked me to let you all know the reason of his demise.

    I think what's an important take away, is even if we disagree on forum we really don't have the same dialog in real life. That would be a thing to take away when we all get into it with other forum members. Remember we all play a character on forum that might be a gross exaggeration of who we really are. In the end we probably have a lot more in common than we would wildly imagine from the characters we play on the WBF.

    I've exchanged a pleasant PM with Rummy in the past. Sorry to hear he got banned. Last I heard he was saying he lost a lot of posts but was obviously still with us.
    Somewhere between Murder and Suicide, there is a place called Merseyside.

    Joe - agreed. We do often have more in common that is obvious here.

    My small quibble, though, is that I do try and be true to who I am, and NOT play a character. Nonetheless, I am sometimes surprised at the impressions some folks form of who I am.

    I didn't even know there was a Snoop Dog thread.

    It seems there are two things that can get you into banned camp. One is a direct threat or attack. The other is lightly brushing against the thinnest skinned among us.

    Publishing the rapper's reported suggestion may well bring a lot of unwanted heat to the offices of our moderator.

    Bad idea.

    I didn't understand this place much, at first, but I've come to enjoy the weird thing it is here.

    I am always sad when anyone goes away. Less variety.

    I understand completely being offended by personal attacks, or percieved attacks, but then I would just address it in the thread. I don't understand the telling teacher deal for interpersonal spats. If that was the case.

    I don't understand a lot, really.

    Also, I really am just like this in real life. I've had the pleasure of talking to one Rat on the phone, and pming and emailing several others, and I think they'll all attest Amish Rob ain't no clever character. Funny moniker maybe, but sincere dude. I attempt to always speak to the Rats here as if they were guests at my table.

    I love everyone, but I ain't no softie.

    Rum Pirate, I hope you come back. Don't fall off the edge of your pool! I always worry about you guys doing that.

    Peace,
    Robert

    Yes Joe, you are correct in that behind the keyboard, we can be very different people.


    I have met many, many here, and have yet to find a single one I would not tip
    a beverage with.

    That being said, I have extended invitations to do just that with some here, and
    have been flat out ignored.......go figure......



    P.S. IN REAL LIFE, I HARDLY EVER GO POLITICAL..........

    I am asking this because I don't know. But doesn't the button just report the thread/post to the moderator?

    Just So. Sometimes Admin acts, sometimes he doesn't.

    Joe, I've met you and I like to think you're my friend.

    Dude, you are quiet and restrained on here compared to real life.


    It['s a wonderful time of year in the Caribbean, I hope Doug gets to enjoy it.

    I have seen his name spelled both ways, so you going to call out all of the others as well?
