    The parallel, I guess, is that both you and cruiser are either causes or examples of a general taste shift in each forum. Beyond that, I don't think the two cases are all that close.

    Cruiser's specialty was/is to derail every AAAC thread about anything interesting into debates about "Why would anyone pay more than $30 for a pair of pants when my stuff from JC Penny bought in 1965 is perfectly fine? Anyone who does anything different or spends more is just a snob."


    I understand. However, I dont think I singlehandedly have caused a taste shift here. I may just be a little bit more visible about my choices. I am the first to admit that I come to learn, not to teach. I just want that to be clear.

    Someone should do a DT thread where all instances of members praising Matt's physique are compiled. I volunteer to laugh my ass off.

    Is Cruiser still active or did he go to that big I-net J.C. Penny in the sky?

    I may be reading the wrong threads, but lately I've found CE to be strangely informative, thought-provoking, and civil.

    I banned user eml4sker.

    He was initially forumbanned from Buying and Selling for a bump infraction.

    He PM'ed me explaining why he thought that he felt that is pricedrop was adequate, even though he knew that the rule was a bump for a 5% pricedrop.

    I told him that since he'd intentionally broken the rules that everyone else followed, that he'd be forumbanned until he paid a fine.

    He decided that the right response was to insult me.

    Bye, bye.

    Moral of the story - don't be an asshole.

    I don't know. I read them sporadically and find it to be the same dumb ass bullshit as always. Which are these wrong threads you speak of?

    He took over Ask Andy and then it became shit. End of story.

    Not what I had in mind when I said interesting conjecture..
