How am I to get a winner with the thread locked?
People were bitching anyway - some were real @$$holes about it in other threads. If they were "offended"
maybe they should be! I really was going to donate the membership.

Look - now I'm bitching.....

Yes, you're bitching now just like you're bitching in the locked thread and I believe you were told that Goatboy didn't want to hear your bitching.  Bitch.

It wasn't meant to be. Just a fun poke and vent, as well as give out a membership.

If it weren't for Bronze, I wouldn't be a Team Member. It was going well, I thought....

It's fucking stupid. Yeah the sig pic is nice to play with, but in real terms it amounts to shit. I never use the email account that I got and about the only thing that I take advantage of is the picture hosting. Hell, I hardly ever even go to the team member only page. I gave money to help the site, not to get free shit. I never even use the damn search that everybody is crying about. I don't give a shit if I ask a question that's been asked 5 trillion times. There are fucking crybabies on both sides of the issue and the whole thing is moronic.

I'm not giving anybody a membership. If they aren't willing or able to pay for it themself then tough shit, they don't get to search. If I want to give more money to support the site then I'll give more money in my own name, not somebody elses. If somebody was starving or really hard up I wouldn't have any problem giving them $$$, but just so you can have a fucking picture by your name? This whole thing is blown out of proportion...

That's asinine.  It's his bling-bling, let him drop it where he wants, how he wants.  Who the hell is anyone to dictate how anyone else should spend their own money?
Definitely not the way to promote TEAM membership.
View Quote

Ridiculous.  There is a tacked topic doing the same thing with sides being taken, but no promotion of membership.  Looks to me like s0ulzer0's post went beyond this - turn your bitching into something constructive, and if your post amused him the most, he'd buy you a bronze membership so you could get your search and my active topic functions back.  I don't see how this is [b]NOT[/b] promoting team membership; certainly more so than the aforementioned tacked topic.
edited to add:  Thanks for your offer of donation.  How about a post in the Team Forum for suggested contest topics?
View Quote

How about you let the man spend his money how he wants to instead of jumping on the censor-wagon, particularly when it benefits the site more than the constant bitching of non-team members in other threads?  That certainly sounds more sensible to me...

I can't afford the $40 to up to gold, or the $60 to up to platinum. That's why I did bronze.

I did, however scratch up another $20 to give to the winner of my contest.
It may have been seen as "bad taste" to some, but that's my kind of humor.

No need.  If I really took issue with it, I'd forward my own concerns to the staff myself.

I see your point, but the bitching was going on anyway. I figured the contest would be more "constructive".
Maybe let some, while typing their bitch, see that $20 is not that bad, or big of a deal after all....


Sorry, but I never was "PC".

Actually, I don't delude myself into thinking that people actually care what I have to say.  Life's much easier when I'm not desperately trying to make the masses understand my point of view.  [:D]

I truly have no "concerns" that need to be addressed, as it's not my money, not my contest, not my dog, not my fight - it's simply my opinion and nothing more.

Sorry s0ulzer0, I'm just getting back online and reading all the above.  Here's my answer for you:

While I understood your humor in the original thread it was clear that others didn't or wouldn't.  Though your thread was not really pressuring folks about memberships it is definitely not in the spirit of what GB wants out of the memberships.

Now, if you still want to have your fun I will co-sponsor donating a Bronze membership based on your original idea [b]EXCEPT[/b] that all the replies [b]HAVE[/b] to be e-mailed to you and that after a set date you can post only the winning Whiner's reply. Going that route will help keep things civil and hopefully help avoid any confrontations.

How about that proposal?

The biggest issue here is the fact that Goatie has admonished us to refrain from pressuring anyone to become a paid member. I love the guy. He'd just as soon spend his every last cent on this site rather than feel like he's taking any sort of advantage of anyone. Sometimes I want to kick him.

You guys really have no idea what kind of dedicated brother he is.

Definately a chip off his ol' pop.

Personally, I don't see what the damn fuss is about. How about this rule...

If you don't like a thread, and it doesn't violate board rules, MOVE ON.

Exactly how hollow are some of the lives out there that they can get worked up over something so damn simple? Hate to see these same folks come TOTALLY unglued in a real crisis.

That's my point. I wasn't pressuring anybody.
I'm giving it away - in my own fun way.

I really don't think anyone was offended by it.
If so - oh well, that's just me. I've been an asshole for years.
