I do not like you. FACT.

I do not like that you are allowed to post here. FACT.

I think you have a negative impact on the board. FACT.

I think the mods should leave you banned forever and am frustrated by your continued posting here. FACT.


Other may feel differently, but that's my opinion and I'm sticking to it. I've never tried to come up with proof, or report you or anything similar. All I do is argue over wether or not you should be allowed to post here or not. You have been banned dozens of times for something. I think that once you cross that line, you should not be coming back. It's that simple. You have been forbidden from coming here, for whatever reason, yet you continue to return. That is the problem.

As for not having a way to keep people banned... that's BS. We used to ban people all the time. Just ban their IP address. Ban their email address. There are things you can do that make it harder and harder for people to keep coming back.

Hi Ort,

Do you like me?

It's not all the "Dumb and Dumber" kind.

Kliban, Woody Allen, Jim Jarmusch, Tarrantino, and Richard Pryor are/were American too.

Well, there's also a lot of great german humor - it's never "exportable" though! "Fast wia im richtigen Leben" from Gerhard Polt for example!
I think it's even hard to export it over the Weißwurschtäquator!

I think the ignore list can hold only so many lists. sek, this isn't our problem, this is Rob's problem. Why should anyone have to go out of their way because a "grown adult" can't follow simple rules?

Yes I guess all those times I've reported you to the mods and you've gotten banned for attacks is all make-believe Rob.

I like ya Doof, your a cool dude....but being the coolest guy in a group of silly Mac nerds isn't anything to be proud of.
sek you are doing the very thing you are accusing Doof of right now. You realize that right?

I've given Rob multiple chances. I was the one that even bitched and bitched till he got unbanned this last time (Kicking myself for it. )

Rob doesn't make "Friend jokes" My group of friends make digs at each other too.

Like what was said above, Rob does what he does on his own. Obviously what he is doing IS different than what you are portraying.

Is that like the times on AIM with you whining and crying to me to get you unbanned because it wasn't "fair" you were banned etc. It seemed there for awhile every time you'd get banned you'd run to your AIM account and rant to me. And ask me to msg a mod to "fix it"

And for years I did take up for you and tried to get you banned under the premise that you would stop what caused you to get banned in the first place.

I don't want you banned Rob. I want you to stay here. I just want you to stop blaming others for your bad actions. And stop being such a jerk to people "just because you can"

Karma is a bitch. And from the looks of your posts and life happenstance it's played it's game with you.

Polt's "Mai Ling" skit is nothing short of amazing.

BTW my opinion as to why NN isn't what it was? tooki is gone.

He was a bit more diligent in keeping the place cleaned up. Even though I myself have had some of the worst arguments in here with him, I now realize just how much he actually did. They need about 3 or 4 more mods to replace him.

If thats possible.

Well that and there are more "bullies" about. The condescending banter not really meant as a joke, but meant to be hurtful or snotty.

NN has always had people that did this above. Just seems more are popping up daily. Maybe it has to do with my original premise.

I only read the last one, as I thought it might have been in response to my post, but it made me guffaw that, of all people, Kevin should whine about "bullies" on MacNN - in what would have been a six-string of posts had mine not popped in there!

Who am I bullying? Or more so, how does the amount of posts in a row I post have any relevancy in my attitude in which they are posted in?

And why did you project me whining? There is no need to do that. And people wonder why I keep on using the "projection" word I've said nothing to you, nor even attacked you analog.

And why do you feel the need to give us an excuse as to why you read my post?

Would it hurt your street cred if people thought you read it cause you wanted to?

It was a mock. Sheesh. Of course great American humor exists. Just as much as bad English (or any other nation's) humor exists.
I did not think I'd need to explain that though.

It airs on MTV - Tuesdays at 21h, I think! I never got into it but I have only watched the last 10-15 minutes about twice so far (because Southpark is right afterwards)!
In this genre I prefer Futurama <-> Simpsons -> Southpark -> nothing

Ah, okay. MTV has gone downhill for quite some time now so I hardly ever tune in. I used to watch the Simpsons fairly a bit, too. Southpark also. They're both quite okay. Never heard of Futurama.

Seriously though, never heard of Futurama? I don't know how much of our stuff gets carried over seas, but I thought that was something everyone was familiar with.

This is the reason I visit the lounge. Watching arguments and personal attacks gets my adrenaline pumping.

Sadly, I'm not exaggerating. =\

Ah, but I prefer not to actually get involved in them, because then it's no longer fun.

You make absurd non-sensical mean spirited posts like this, this wonder why you get "the treatment"

At least you've stopped harassing my GF on IM. I will give you that.

Yes, you were upset that you got "wrongly" banned and wanted me to make it better. You would beg and plead for me to talk to tooki or Demonhood to get you unbanned. The latter can probably attest to me even making attempts to do so. So no lie there. Not that I 1. Expect you ever to admit it. 2. Apologize and admit you were wrong.
And sorry, I haven't talked to you on AIM for about 3 years really.
Didn't say it was recent. So why are you even bringing up this point? And it's been a long shorter than 3 years. It was right after I HAD to block you after you and your wife got drunk and started attacking me for my religious beliefs did the conversations between me and you stopped. After I unblocked you, you started sending me hateful msgs again. So you got blocked again.
PS: You don't believe in Karma. You believe in God judging people, remember?
I believe we reap what we sow. Which is the same principle as Karma.

Why all the attacks on my religious beliefs Rob? Is that a self defense mechanism kicking in? Or is that you again not doing anything wrong?

Again, I don't hate you Rob. I don't wish you banned.

I do wish you'd take responsibilities for your own actions however.

That might come with maturity later on. Lets hope.

Until you can start taking responsibilities for your actions, places like this, the neons board and all the other boards you've been banned for will continue to do so. And nothing will change.

If someone on here is treating you badly Rob, it's more than likely because you've been a jerk to them.

You treat others the way you want to be treated.
