Under Attack?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Roark Haver, Mar 14, 2003.


  1. Were we (TB) under some sort of troll attack yesterday afternoon? I noticed a whole bunch of old threads being bumped up. If so, what happened?

    actually, the old threads are being brought up to fore by bruce - he's running out of new things to talk about and he's trying to maintain the 650 post per month average that he's averaged since jan 1.
     
  4. haha wondered what was happening. :D :D :D

    I think someone has a saggy messy diaper, and is alittle fussy and grumpy until he gets it changed.

    Anyone volunteer to powder his bottom??!:eek:

    hehehehe....

    shouldn't we leave the powdering to jt? I would imagine that he is uniquely qualified for something like this...

    Well this is a nice bit of personal abuse - I would complain to a moderator - but it seems to be mostly them perpetrating the abuse - so can I ask if the guidelines don't apply if you're a moderator?

    Thanks for all the "respect" guys - tell me why I should respect any of you now?
     
  14. Do you dispute JT's claim then? From here it certainly looks like you resurrected old threads just to make posts.

    Well I did exactly what people are always told to do ; "I did a search" !!!

    So - Tubass posted another thread about where do people live - I said (I know from experience) that it had been done many times before and he said that he had done a search and hadn't found anything.

    So as he was unbelieving, I did a quick search of my own and it dug up about 5 or 6 - the search also included quite a few other threads, so at first I just "bumped" each one that I found, that related to the question "where are you from" so he could see these.

    But one or two of the others were quite amusing - like the one about the top 20 posters which said that these were also the best bass players - undoubtedly untrue in my case!! ;)

    Besides - whether or not I had a valid reason for doing this (obviously I felt that I did) does that make the "personal abuse" any better? I was just asking the question, as this "rule" seems to have been suspended in this case ?

    Do I get an apology - is the abuse retracted?

    I think there's a disclaimer in the forum rules saying that the no-abuse rule doesn't apply to you, Bruce :D
