    few things here.

    -is there any other way to live than dancing with the flame tornado while holding a mix of gas and oil in an open container?
    -it was pretty obvious the ensuing mess and inevitable ban was coming, I had no desire to hang out in a forum that could have been if the Nazi won the war
    -a banned member emailed me and asked I contribute in my usual modus operandi to feed the flame and fire all around us at the time, the floor was lava and I love to be challenged

    I was getting warnings but they were all silly and I felt brave enough to question the guy, that resulted in some conversations where I was myself and didn't play my usual character. They went back and forth but his logic was pretty much out the window so I'd have given myself less that 12 hours if he was still around, probably would have been kicked out after my first morning post. I remember dealing with Allen on sale items I had listed and seeing his contributions to the few, he was a jerk. We live and learn, moving on...

    I do enjoy your posts, don't get me wrong. Sometimes people need to hear things straight up. Works for me. Even if it IS me that is getting straightened up.

    I noted that it seemed to be when @vadsy took his 'break' that things really went south.
    I'm nominating him to be the scapegoat for all of this. ;)

    I was on a Harley forum a few years back like that, anything goes and people fought verbally....until one day some fought physically.

    My town's Facebook Q&A page was exactly like that. The best was an argument I saw that ended in a 'meet me in the Walmart parking lot' challenge (that was actually serious). The group is still a goldmine and one of the only reasons I check Facebook in the morning. But no more threats.

    I had a huge collection of great screenshots from that group I finally cleaned off my phone. My favourites were a women complaining about planes flying too low, and a women that outed her drug dealer because he ripped her off.

    That logic applies to many leadership roles. Don't think we're allowed to say the P word here.

    I've done that except it was meet me at Sherway Gardens Parking lot - although I've since calmed down a lot from what I was like then; probably cause I got old ... lol.

    I'm still friends with a lot of people from those boards though and we meet up at Christmas and such. Great time, great people and one of them is a former Navy Seal who was a complete lunatic.

    I logged out about 9 pm and I guess the dung hit the fan while I was gone.
    I think Cheezy is still AWOL.

    I voted volunteer. Doesn't someone have to volunteer before we can nominate them. (Note I didn't say him) Maybe one of our female members wants the job.
