Not only have I been banned, I took down that goofball moderator "wlonh", too. You guys should be lining up to kiss my butt.

Edit: Not jacked.

It was late 2000. My name was TNproud2b. I was accused of hacking the forums. By posting a JPG screenshot of the forum in a post. In reality I never posted that JPG and the forums were never hacked by anybody. It makes no sense. But it all relates to the fact that my dual overclocked Xeon machine was kicking Team MacNN's butt at SETI. Confused? I sure was.

Say what you will about ca$h, but any thread where I get repeatedly jacked must be a happening one. He has staved off the mundanity of the NN, at least for a few days.

dude I'm only drinking hoegaarden.
When a beer is that tasty can you really define yourself as merely drinking?
Can you? Can you really?



you probably checked this blank space for some hilarious comment. You won this round Dakar!

I checked the blank space. Just as I figured.

I don't drink beer unless it's Newcastle. That's the only halfway decent thing to ever come out of the UK - except for Doofy's boob sig.

I'm drinking some decent whiskey. Local stuff out of Kentucky. If your Whiskey isn't signed and numbered and includes a cork then it's crap.

I honestly wasn't aware you could get non-corked whiskey..
Theres some good ales in cambridge actually, but Newcastle is particularly nice.

Spliff...

Grab a Newcastle. In the bottle. Have a mouthful. Then tip a double Pernod in there. Cover with thumb and shake.

Ta da! A Commando.

So did I miss something?

Why is Ca$h not banned yet?

Why is he still allowed to post here?

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

Start a Feedback thread if you're really that concerned about it.

Only way you're guaranteed some type of response.

Wait a minute. Don't worry about Ca$h. He just single-handedly saved the Lounge with this thread.
He is mostly a benefit to the forums. If you ignore his attacks. Believe me...he knows as much about automobiles as i do. And that's saying something. Also, his wife is kinda hot. For real, if Ca$h is banned then fully half of us need to go, too. Thicken your skin, folks. If a person can annoy you *that much* then I'm inclined to believe it's partly your own fault. How do you make it through life without being offended? You can't ban the people you dislike. He's not much different than any of us.

That's why I said "some type of response" rather than answer.

And that'd certainly tell you all you need to know.

Edit: And you can always rouse Kevin and RR to storm the gates till you get an answer.

Awe c'mon. Get a grip. This forum is no different than real life. You have your Ca$h's and you have your Kevin's. It's up to each individual to accept each others' differences. Life would truly suck if we could pick and choose the folks we interact with. There should never be a time when it was desirable to ban a member of society. Hell, I'm a rightwing conservative and I wouldn't think of dismissing a dissenting opinion. Can't all you leftwing Apple fanatics tolerate the same things I do? Seek to improve yourselves. I'll act as a role model.

It's bit difficult to punch a forum handle in the face though.

I've been here for a couple of years, and I'm annoyed by the breast sigs.

That being said, most of the core people here are OK. We also have some very knowledgeable people on this forum. I'm also a fan of most of the mods. I also kinda miss Tooki...

Please don't play me the German card. There've got to be better arguments by now you'd think. I am German . In a most un-german, non-invasive kind of way.

My roommate was amazed at the quickness of the replies I got in my speaker thread.

Granted, they turned out to be garbage, but I had a temporary solution within minutes of posting.

We wouldn't have guessed...

Please don't follow in TETENAL's footsteps and solidify the impression that we Germans simply don't understand humor, 'kay?
