    Whether you like Menzies or not he was not as condescending to others as the former triple C, who got a lot more slack when it came to punishment. I will vote to bring him back.

    I like Menzies, though I gave him grief.

    Life is politics. I don’t agree with most of his, but isn’t it important to see the views?

    I think the members that didn't like him were prone to **** on a daily level anyway.

    There must be a point. But it’s a bit foggy.

    If condescending is an offense then we have the potential to lose a lot more members.
    And when did we start voting on who gets back in?
    If that's the case we should be able to vote on who gets tossed out.....right?
    Clearly no one one was disliked so much by so many for so long then Menzies. I often wondered why he stuck around. But not only did he stay, he contributed. He started a lot of threads. The guy is pretty smart, although he must have done something stupid.
    Someone here has to know what it was. I sure don't know.

    Not about like or dislike nor about agree or disagree with Menzies. As noted by mindya, he contributed. And contributed a lot, I think it is unfortunate that a guy with an 8 year history who was approaching 20 k in posts gets tossed out. He brought a lot passion to the forum and there were/are many that have been far more offensive than the Menz.

    That's the unvarnished truth right there.

    He couldn't have possibly got sideways in a political post as we all know there are no more political threads and there is no way those are slipping through to drive more post count.

    I hope he was banned for a good reason. I never had any problem with him.

    He is just a troll who's time came up, like a bad cold, fire ants, and Cher you can count on him coming back trolling and be outraged that he is used as a virtual punching bag. And virtue signaling.

    At least Gary C used to throw parties and has done a **** ton to fight for the rights of anglers in Florida. This place is worse off without him. He is a real nice guy in person.

    Because what is and is not acceptable is a moving target and not applied equally.

    I agree.

    I was nearly banned because a Mod 'thought' that I posted a photo of a dead baby, when in fact, it was fully alive but on life support.

    Another time, same thing, but with me posting a photo of a politician holding a bucket of KFC while another photo of the same politician showing his hair as broccoli, was 'okay'.

    When Cane Pole, previously known as FSEric, was a Grand Poobah, he threatened to ban me for not sufficiently worshipping the '72 Dolphins.

    I am not making this up, am I Cane Pole?

    Sounds like a good reason

    The '72 Dolphins would get humiliatingly crushed by any modern team.

    Six threads from Politics have been dumped so far in the month of March, one for a cussword in the title, a few because the arguments became personal, like the Cyclist thread, and one for sexual content. There are also some individual posts that have been removed

    We don't really like threads that are about banned members, since they can't respond.

    I left the Cyclist thread up as long as the conversation didn't denigrate him, but soon enough the members were attacking each other, so bye-bye.

    Again, it's lack of respect for your fellow Forum members that will get you time off.

    I try to PM members who have had posts and threads pulled, but not when the member is obviously putting up something he knows is a no-no.

    If you ever have a question about something that has gone away, or anything else regarding Forum rules, please PM me.

    Don't get your panties in a twist fellers. That Irish Traveler has been banned almost as many times as Popeye. He'll be back.

    So much for taking the high road.:rolleyes

    Billy, I couldn't take the high road. Menzies and his crew of Gypos were repaving it.

    I'm pretty laid back in debates on here but he would always look for arguments in what I posted which I thought was odd in his behavior.

    True, but Menzies would also expect the fence post to stroke his ego.

    Y'all are make Minzies head swell with all of this "I miss him/bring him back talk". When he is here some complain and now he is not you complain. This is truly what OT is about these days. Debate, argue, call it what you want. Some people just live for it.

    Yeah, I just brushed his arguments off on most of my post replies. Yes, we are feeding him right now with this gossip. When he gets back online, watch out......lol

    Actually a few days ago he posted a video on Youtube, taken from a drone, of the entry to his community. He does live in a beautiful area.
