Really guys, this is really not important stuff - certainly not worth getting into a big argument over (which I'm sure is where this is headed).

If only some people could keep a healthy perspective as to how unimportant a forum like this in life's grand scheme, I think we would all be better off.
Chill out buddy. Stop taking this stuff so seriously. I don't understand why you always feel like you have to be the Dr. Phil of the bunch.

No RR. It is not a lie. And I have access to the forum, so I can prove it too:



You wanted to become a member just to piss Rob off and you publicly stated so.

You're a little late. I already posted a link to the thread.

And I clearly stated I was hurt that rob was a member, but I wasn't (a member yet). Not that I wanted to be a member because he was. As you so conveniently left out in your picture, I asked to still be allowed to join even though rob was banned.

You distorted the truth in a major way and that is called lying. You told a lie. Be a man and admit it.

IDK if it's possible, but maybe everyone could try and get along. Y'all seem like kids on a playground arguing over who can get up and down the slide the fastest.

I was simply setting straight a lie about me. I wouldn't have said anything, but it seemed like someone felt free to attack me when I wasn't able to respond. I am now able to respond and did.

Are you calling us "kids"? Welcome to the playground.

I wasn't referring to just you. There are tons of instigators.

I use steroids while I'm on MacNN sometimes, taking advantage of the lack of a drug test here.

This thread has run it's course.
The parties have agreed not to.
Civility must be enforced.
Time to start anew.
