1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    no, that is not a myth - all the buried threads are alive and well in squirrel where we can read them and mock you all mercilessly unbeknownst to the wider population. However, there wasnt anything squirreled today, all of the new ernest posts are still out there for all to see.

    I am just wishing I could have been a part of ernest 2.0. Actually, more like ernest 9.0 come to think of it.

    So this is where all my haters go to bash behind my back.[​IMG] Use the ignore buttons please! By the way, I've really toned down my language. If I cause any offense, just let me know and I'll happily edit my posts. Using guerrilla tactics like shooting where I'll never see your comments will not help or make it easier on my part. I apologize for the pain I've caused to you or your families. I've been rehabilitated.
    People here haven't been shy to tell you what they think of you. There is no "guerilla tactics"- you're just not worth it, with your racism and bigotry (which btw, you have almost always chosen to ignore when people call you out.) And you're too old to be tutored on what you should or should not post, so why should people here get out of their way to make it "easier on your part"? Who taught you to feel so entitled anyway? I don't need to put you on my ignore button. I don't even hate you, and I'd be totally indifferent by your presence here if only you spew out racist remarks like a stupid bigot in an otherwise forum full of fairly educated and respectful members. As a matter of fact I find it peculiar you spew out so much bigotry when I've assume you yourself is a minority living in the United States. Oh yeah, and to quote somebody from the roadbikereview forum:
    Oh god....You are here now....Help us!!!
    BTW, the comments are here because this is where posts like this goes. Can't you understand that? Why the hell would people go talk where you'll "never see our(sic) comments"? You really think you're that special? Shit, you don't have to answer that. I just remember you're the type that would, as a fairly new member, start a thread announcing your departure like it was the end of this forum- then come back after a few days. Self-entitlement on the webz- must be a bitch to have the responsibility, eh?

    It's a shame that a statement like that will most likely fall on deaf ears again. How many people does it take advantage of the "ignore" function before someone takes the hint...?

    I thought ernest's "would you date a girl" threads were pretty harmless, moving them to dumb sub-forum would have sufficed. And there're certain truth to the "people are dumb" thread. One member with his relentless dumb threads and bigot posts is much more deserved to be banned than ernest.

    Ah i see i have riled some people up with my views but my intention was to honestly bring about open dialouge. Anyways I regret the thread deteriorated into a mess of personal attacks and slander to which I must admit I instigated and fuelled. In any case, I shall refrain from the same for the present.

    Merry moderation moderators ! (An amazing alliterative ability!)

    Cheers

    Just shows that The Self-Entitled One is either as dense as a box of nails, or he's pretending to be one, or he's the type that likes to walk in forums to piss people off. --------- Oh and I totally agree with VR. Leave one termite be and he'd eat the woodwork away in no time.

    I think that if someone declares a self imposed banning more than once (and is unsuccessful in adhering to it) SF should take his need seriously and actually just ban him in support.

    Especially if the character is generally a twat and contributes only annoyance to the board.

    That said, I'm just going to do my own little banning and use the ignore feature.

    The ignore button does not give any poster license to be a troll, pest, and general dick.

    You may hate moderation. Nevertheless, you are subject to it if you choose to continue posting on this forum. And why are you posting this statement in the Transparent Moderation thread? Are you daring me to ban you?

    I am going to PM this to you. I had better get an answer in this thread.

    Fok.

    I read your comments a second time and not sure what you want me to say. If you want to ban me, then there's not much I can do. Am I suppose to be afraid of you? Well, I'm not.

    Thomas Jefferson once said:

    When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty

    I'm not a "dick." You are by calling me one. Same with all the other people who consistently called me names like "twats" and "troll". I didn't see you do anything about that. Double standards I think.

    I'm going to post this on the transparent moderation thread, since I asked you to respond to me there, and my reply, below, as well.

    You have evidently misunderstood the nature of Styleforum, and nearly all internet fora, for that matter. It is not a democracy. It's not any type of political entity, in fact.

    It is more like a neighbourhood pub. We welcome everyone in, but if you insist on badgering other patrons, disrespecting the bartenders, and generally deteriorating the atmosphere, you will get tossed out on your ass.

    As for what I would have considered a reasonable reply, you should have responded that you would behave in a more reasonable manner. But instead, you give me some high fallutin shit as if you were defending great American ideals, and point the finger towards others.

    Bye.

    Fok.
