OK, you found us. I suggested this fine gentleman come looking for us in a post on Bass Forum on TDPRI where due to also having left their under less than friendly terms by my more traditional name I registered under an alias much the same as I did on TalkBass where I was also shown the door......at my own request. Glad to see you here brother.

As best I can recall it all began in one of of our many disputes with TB management over the thread we created there that was the predecessor to this forum. It was a very popular thread and that's pretty much an understatement. That pissed off some of the bass talk only snobs and our little war with them and the mods began.

One mod in particular who I'm sure wears an SS arm band has pin up posters of Hitler in drag and I just didn't see eye to eye on much so I "taunted" him. Like "Go way silly English person." "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries". It seems he could only take so much taunting so banished me to......well.....to here I guess.

It's nice here. We can taunt each other as much as we like. In fact it's the entire premise of our being here this band of bass brothers and others who don't play bass at all but are along for the ride and the other areas of cyber entertainment offered. Anyway, that's what I can recall and if it's not all true just do what I do and pretend it is. ;)

I once got someone else banned when I called him out on some sexist bullshit and he went ballistic.

I wasn't trying to get him banned, but gotta say it was kinda satisfying.
I got someone banned a few weeks ago because he was harassing my best buddy over there. You don't do that, at least not when I'm around.

This guy was very cleverly following my bud around in different forums and just being tongue-in-cheek enough with his insults to not attract attention, and you had to see all of what he was doing to get a clear picture of the actual harassment.

I just told the mods to keep an eye on him and bam, he was gone.

They can be pretty quick on the draw there. Sometimes that's ok, but sometimes not.

I got banned for over-reacting to some bigoted nationalist abuse - clearly I was the wrong side of the bigotry or I'd have been ok! Although it has to be said I very definitely broke an unbreakable rule in my final post so couldn't really argue the point :)

Ah well, consider yourself home now. LOL

There have been a few of us here who have run afoul of TB mods and gotten suspensions or worse. You're in good company.

Having been the target of cyber-stalking myself - including by someone who lives local - I know how unpleasant it can be. Good for you for taking some action.

Thanks. Yep, sometimes the trash needs to go out. I have no idea what wild hair got up that guy's butt to cause him to go off on that little rampage but it wasn't a good look at all. I'd sort of thought he was ok up until that point but, nah.
