Naku! I thought I was the FIRST member banned!
Oh well! you can't win them all!


Banned????

If my memory is any good at all ...

I believe you had a meltdown here and left of your own free will ...

Then you went around to all the other forums posting about how terrible THIS forum is ...

I guess you've gotten over it now ... as you seem to be back again ...

Welcome back to WoF Jack ...

Show me where I posted on any other forums how terrible this forum was "kaibigan".


You were the uninformed person as a LOT of your post show you are that started the whole thing when I posted air fare discounts for immigrants and you laughed at me.

As you know by now you were WRONG!

I'm surprised you haven't been banned for flaming people!
Here's from another of your more "intelligent post here recently!
I believe she is saying that pisoot means little penis in ilonggo ...

I wasnt wrong Jack ... it wasnt a question of being right or wrong ...

All I said was that "First time immigrant special" sounded funny ... it actually made me laugh ... if you cant see the humor in that ... Im truely sorry ... but others found it to be humorous as well ...

Oh I wont bother to explain the "little penis" post ... if you read the previous posts it makes sense ...

So here we both are Jack ... you have not been banned ... and neither have I ... so lets just both be happy about that and try to have a nice night ... ok?

Sir Henry,

i can assure you that the first member banned was not banned for using email...I wont go into details but I thkn Tim has adressed this with you before..if not he definatly addressed it here in the forum....several times...

sometimes tbis makes me wonder if YOU are that member and you are just usiing another IP address. HMMMMMM make u wonder...

all the bored trolls and ridiculers did not start anything in here....it seems to be a new set of problem makers...the folks that u reffered to from Asawa have migrated here but ther's no problems from them.

Southerndon


I can assure you I am not that member laugh.gif , The only reason I ever brought it up in the first place was the fact that the member did not post anything offensive here at WOF(that I had ever seen), he must have e-mailed a mod(you perhaps) and was banned for that along with whatever he was saying at other sites. I have no personal interest in that member. I was only questioning the reasoning, and Hawk's #1 post in "A sad day for WOF" stated that the 2 e-mails to a mod was the reason. Being a former mod here that participated in the flame war at Asawa( which you admitted to) was the only reason I used your name in the reasoning for my position. Don't take it so personally, it was not meant to be a personal attack on you.(I did stop when Hawk took it as a personal attack) It was just an example for the sake of the questioning, being a fellow member of you know where, you should have thicker skin. I just have to question things, it's my nature laugh.gif As far as I am concerned, it's Hawk's forum he may do as he pleases with it and I'm not going to complain. If I don't like it, I know where the door is. Oh, and Jack, George is correct laugh.gif

I can assure you that my skin is thick enough....I never considered it an attack on me and if it were I can handle it..i can assure you.

It just is strange how you seem to take an interest in this particular subject. Are you a member of BNN...Yes I do know where LOL...and it's not a bad word or secret.

It's ok to question things I don't mind it..i reallu don't. I question too...but it seem, sometimes, that when I do or one of the BNN members, we are accused of starting trouble.

As for the "flame war" I only use taht term to keep things simple....I only truly flamed one particular person.....and since then he and I have sort of shaken hands and called it a truce...but I only really flamed one person and most of the folks here know who that is. It was not here it was in Asawa. I am sure you know that.

What many folks accused me of flaming was me simply speaking my mind about certain people...it seems that is considered indecent or "bastos" as the Filipinos call it. I don't apologize for speaking my mind and never will.

I appreciate the conversation Henry...have a nice day. wink.gif

Tim, for those that do not know it, could you post exactly what you mean by flaming and how it differs from disagreeing? Sometimes the line can be a little blurred and it would probably be helpful if you posted exactly what you meant to avoid any misunderstandings.

I think that anything said WITH THE INTENT to hurt or anger another member is flaming. I guess I am the one to judge the intent.

There's nothing quite as tragic as a forum torn apart by petty divisive behavior. We're here to learn and communicate and that means listening to the other party(s), not protecting our egos and prove ourselves in front of an audience. This is WOf, not Divorce Court. I am not a moderator obviously but people.. please... if you have issues, take it off site where it probably originated or at least use the PM's. I have been banned at another site because I have a big mouth and believe me, I know the frustration and hurt in being cast out from a community you call home. Don't let this fate fall upon you as well because you couldn't keep your tongue reined in. It is a process I wish upon nobody! Do not forget the Golden Rule...

It came to me that every time
I lose a dog,
they take a piece of my heart with them.

And every new dog
who comes into my life
gifts me with a piece of their heart.

If I live long enough,
all the components of my heart will be dog,
and I will become
as generous and loving as they are.

As I had mentioned in a post a while back that I was amazed how you had managed to keep everything under control without deleting flames and banning flamers. Yes as the population of this site grows the difficulty in maintaining the status quo will become quite difficult.

Its not a sin to moderate, if a post needs to be removed then do so without further apology, if the poster is an @@@ warn and then throw the bum out if the need be there. Speaking from experience moderating is not a ego trip regardless how some of those who feel they are persecuted.

My problem with deleting post or threads is that it wont stop them. Just like on asawa, a thread would get locked down or deleted just to start up again 10 min's later in another thread. The only thing that I see that works is to ban the flamers. It's really simple ......no flamers = no flames.

I agree of Ban or delete his/her post if ever its not appropriate or if you think something wrong with it.Thats what our moderator did in our California vtx riders group board.
Eventually Im sad to think that there are some people who are very sensitive and misunderstand some of what they have read So I assumed we must not be presumptuous and be tactful of what want to say.Remember were still stranger to each other.No one knows exactly who we are.I advice to be considerate and be sensitive...
But in making jokes it will be fun too .It add spices to our life,so before we react to his/her joke think about it first.If the joke intimidate you?? Then forget it....Remember blessed who have patience and knows how to forgive..Amen!!
