    Excellent job guys. I couldn't believe the stuff that was popping up on my screen.

    Apparently you guys were closing threads and deleting posts real-time, 'cause page counts were changing as I was scrolling and posts were disappearing.

    I guess now we have an inkling of what it'll be like when a certain banned Zon-ophile has children :rolleyes:

    Peace,

    Mouth-breather invasion. Two of 'em. Kinda like the two serial killers working in tandem in James Patterson's "Kiss The Girls"

    More than likely a coupla methed out dorks. They're gone now. Paul dispatched them with the quickness

    The threads are for the most part gone. What really ticked me off is they seriously infected the thread that called alert to the MTD that was stolen on its way to NAMM. Last time I looked the whole thread was gone. I was in that thread when Paul went to work. It went from 8 pages to 2 pages to gone.

    Two trolls, probably one person... were posting porn, and being abusive to everyone.

    They started a few other threads, one was even specifically about me to call me names (it made me feel special to have a thread dedicated to me).

    The thread about the bass stolen at NAMM is back up, and all of the poop was flushed down the toilet.

    I dont think that it was one person, the posts were coming in too fast I think for it to be one person.

    I do, however, think they were probably sitting next to each other on 2 computers.

    The MTD thread is still there - I opened it back up after I mopped the floor and scrubbed the toilets. (Don't eat the urinal mints!)
     
  14. sure sounds like the mods were very busy keeping things under control. wow. i have not seen any due to being at work. sounds like it was crazy there for a while. good job guys. it would not have been cool to get on and see stuff on a site that is so great. thanks for all you do.:D

    HOW FREAKING IMMATURE DO YOU SERIOUSLY HAVE TO BE TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT?

    Honestly? I mean, I take naps, finger paint, giggle, whine and complain in my process of acting like a 4 year old. But I can also have the maturity of a 40-year old whenever the situation calls. I adapt to situations real well.

    THEY ARE A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT STORY....


    Whoa......I just drank a can of Ginger Ale and the room is HARDCORE spinning...(no, I have no drugs in my system except for my medicine; I don't do that stuff)...

    I'm gonna lay down....brb.....

    Yeah, sad, I know. But, I think given that you are on the internet, you can probably find your own porn, given.......oh, I dunno......about 1/3 second?;)

    I chose my wording very carefully so that only those who have first hand knowledge of certain situations would know who and what I meant. Apparently that worked.;)

    BTW - Drawing reference to the banned individual I referenced, without using his name, puts in perspective for some of us long-timers here the tone and timbre of the posts that were removed and the individuals who were banned because of it. Primary difference is the banned individual I reference would probably not have stooped to the porn level.

    Peace,

    James

    Nickelwound,

    I think your response and my edit passed each other in cyberspace. I editted my most previous post to point out the the banned individual I referred to would most likely NOT have stooped to porn. Profanity and personal attacks were in the norm for him.

    Peace,

    James
