I take it that they aren't going to ban bread then?

What will become of the children if we do not ban it.

This is how words get banned.

We used to be able to say the acronym for Marine Pattern.

More like four years ago, unless there was another round. I think I may have been the one who triggered the creation of the "don't spam the boards" policy -- it was my thread on milling my thumb that got that round going.
Link Posted: 5/19/2005 6:38:12 PM EST
Dang, just dang. People allow their accounts to be locked over bread? BREAD? bread?


Now I really have seen it all.

I like extra sharp cheddar cheese from Wisconsin.

I wonder if Wisconsin liberals make the cheese? I may have to stop buying it in that case.
Link Posted: 5/19/2005 7:20:56 PM EST
That reminds me.

I do most of my posting from work. I’m either very busy or very bored. A few months ago I left work one Saturday morning. Monday afternoon came, and being rained out I checked into a nearby Public Library to check up on Arfcom.

There was this furor subsiding over some silly little word.
Said silly word being “Tonk”.
My reaction was, and still is, “HUH?”

Can somebody enlighten me on just what happened? It seems so silly.
And stupid.
How did it start?
I mean, what in the world went on in those 36 hours? And I really would like to know what happened.

As you are not a Team member I cannot actually show you what happened (it's in the Archive server). A now banned member used the word "Tonk" to refer to residents of a neighborhood he was planning to move into. He posted a thread titled--"Gotta give props to tonks, they really keep their bitches in line." The thread dealt with "not one, not two, but THREE very Mexican and very pregnant girls washing their man's truck. Those tonks are keepin' their bitches in line and keepin' it real."--or very close, as I'm doing this from memory. The word was clearly used in a derogatory fashion and specifically named people of Mexican descent as the target. He had done this several times prior and was given a two week timeout from the site. Upon his return, the AZ forum was spammed with threads insisting the word had nothing to do with RACE, but was just the sound a Mag light makes when striking the head of a criminal. Staff and Sr. Staff asked for the BS to stop and the response was to escalate. Ed Sr. finally posted a thread saying the next one to use the word would be banned. Several did and their accounts were locked. This site doesn't pick words at random to ban. There is always a story behind it.

The MARPAT deal was a similar thing to tonight. Eighteen of twenty-five threads on page one of GD (and there were several tacked threads among the remainder) were spinoffs of the word "MARPAT." This kind of expensive waste of bandwidth is HIGHLY insulting to the Avila's, as it wastes money. Posters were asked nicely to stop and the response was to post several more threads in quick succession. Ed Sr. did his thing again with a tacked thread saying the next one to use the word would be banned. Of course, several had to test him. Foolish move.

Tonight it was eighteen threads involving the word "bread." Dunno why, I wasn't here. It all comes down to obeying the rules and not being disrespectful to our hosts.

Thanks. That was exactly what I wanted to know.

And while I missed the Marpat episodes, leaving the examples collected in a locked (It was a locked thread, wasn’t?) thread was a perfect way to illustrate why they had to be temporarily banned.

Now correct me here, but Fox “The Resident Kid”, was banned/suspended?
If so I’m reminded of the time almost everybody here told Fox to stop roaming the Internet and to start roaming around the great out of doors.
Now maybe he will.

Why do you care and how old are you?



I care because fox was a cool member...

He shot his mouth off and I want to know if it really got him banned...

It isn't a big deal since you all let others know when you ban trolls, right?

Knowing jtw2, I'm sure he meant that the knuckleheads who started the spamming are "stupid".

It looks like I missed another.

*sound that shall not be named* Check.
*camo pattern that shall not be named* Check.
*animation that shall not be used* NO Check!
*food product that shall not be named* Check
*religion that shall not be named*. Check.

Animation?

I don't know what is up with this bread stuff. Apparently I missed it. But this seems to be like a good place to post this.

I remember when the rules were enforced in a much more strict fashion. Then suddenly the rules were relaxed. The alowing of BOTD in GD is an example. Shortly after this the overall quality of posts in GD took a nose dive.

I recently joined another discussion board. I discovered that the people moderating had a very strict no nonsence approach. As a result the posts were high quality as everyone was forced to THINK before posting.

Now being a mod is a thankless job.... THANK YOU MODS!!!!! You make the site what it is.

On my other forum the mod was gone for 1 day ONE DAY. and the forum went to hell.

AGAIN THANK YOU MODS!!!!!

Can we say, Thank you for stopping the stupid post

And as a Marine, MARPAT is for the ones who earn it.
Link Posted: 5/20/2005 1:40:48 AM EST
A Clarification, if you please.

Was Fox Banned outright or was he Suspended?

Banned means he won’t be back;
Suspended means he will be back.

Which one, please?
