What is up with all the deleted threads? Hot monkey poll, Mack's DL issues? Stinkyboy being booted? Is this a 100% PC site now? Is this part of the patriot act? :stosh:

I see this one being waxed too. I think I MIGHT have been warned about starting these. They say not to question things. It's like in 1984. :D

Did the new owner not come here before he bought it? It's the same banter that has been going on for years. Funny date stories, booty, Mack, and all the other good stuff is going the way of the Do-Do bird. Heck I even got spell Nazied for the first time. With Mack here he is going to be VERY busy.

Just want to keep on the right side of the fence. And no I only ever asked this question once before. When the old ridemonkey came down hard last year.

Agree, but if we don't know what is getting people booted, or deleted how do we not make the same error? Most of what I see is harmless.

Actually, we just like deleting stuff because we love to see members get pissed off at us and create all kinds of hell that we have to deal with. Really, there is nothing we enjoy more.

Have you ever been warned, been asked to stop posting something, or gotten the feeling that you were pissing of mods? No? Then don't worry about it.

The line was drawn in the sand here. I don't know if ol' stinkpot decided to cross it or if he was just the one standing closest to it when BD decided to punch the clock.

Hey I'm just looking for answers as to WHY this is happening. You just come on and be a smarta**. It is a simple question to PREVENT further problems. So be professional and answer the question.

IAB was giving me crap because I am a kid sometimes. I REALLY like pumpkin pie, so I think it is a peace offering. :D

Actually - I think it is when they PM some of us and ask us to not be assbags, yet we continue. I personally won't be contributing to shaved ju*k threads any more. The new head monkey from the north asked nicely, and I will oblige.

Hey I just don't want to get booted. I would have to shut down hotel tahoe for all the monkeys that stay at my house. For most it's the only way to get ahold of me.

I remember when I was on "probation" once... I had no posting privileges but, by some strange quirk of fate, I had unrestriced access to the Super Secret "Mods Lounge"... that was very informative and eye opening.

:evil:

You know how in bad old movies where people use a torch to hold something back, like monsters, giant bugs or angry villagers. Well people I know have a saying when someone repels others around them for one reason or another, it is called carrying the torch. You my friend hold the torch high. :p :thumb:

What makes you think you deserve an answer?

For your information, I've been here since literally day one, I've been responsible for each and every design along the way, and I know how things work. What has been going on here lately has not been cool, and despite being EXTREMELY patient, letting a lot slide, and issuing very polite and concise warnings (as recently as LAST night), the line was crossed too many times.

Ridemonkey is a place for people to come talk about mountain biking, and enjoy conversation with people with similar interests. It's not a place for 15 threads on genital grooming, pictures of the brat pack in lingerie, or graphic discussions about carnal acts with ex co-workers. a) you guys know better, b) you've been asked for it to stop on several ocassions, and c) the volunteer mods on here have better things to do than deal with a bunch of grown adults acting like hormonal teens. My apologies to the hormonal teens on here...you guys are actually pretty well behaved.

I don't go around banning and deleting indiscriminately. I'm probably the most patient site administrator around, but I'm at my wits end dealing with this crap.

There are over 12,000 members on this site, and there are half dozen on here causing headaches. This whole rant only applies to you guys, and you know who you are.

Don't be an ass and you've got nothing to worry about. Keep it up and you're gone.

:angry:

Stinky is on sabatical. We'll see what happens. :think:
