DanGWanG on probation...
« on: Wed, 30 January 2013, 01:23:35 »
I hope it's not a perma-ban, ripster style... we'll miss your drool-worthy pics and your questioning of the threadcrapping policy and such!

me too. been watching his classifieds thread recently. may i know the source for this information on his ban?
I live in Kansas and not the small part with Google fiber. The weatherman says **** it its Kansas. It looks like the African Savanna, but without all the cool ****. The best internet I can get involves a 60ft tower and only gets 300kbps on a good day well its the best I can get without paying $48,0000. I have to drive 35min just to get gas, not due to traffic, there is no traffic.
On the upside, one day I woke up made a fresh pot of coffee opened the back door and shot a deer.

bating  present participle of bate
Verb
(of a hawk) Beat the wings in an attempt to escape from the perch: "the hawks bated when the breeze got in their feathers".

To be fair his latest posts about how gh mods and admins weren't happy with him for starting the drama regarding his feelings on classifieds threads. Maybe also calling people idiots lol

Pretty pathetic, Dan's a good lad.  It took far more for you guys to remove ripster.  Comes across as a personal issue dressed up as 'the rules' whatever the **** they are.

Thing is, things like this cross a line with people, lifting the ban shouldn't be enough the guy's owed an apology.  Or just hide behind your expensive keyboards..

Ban-GWanG?

Sorry to see it happen - he was full of information on custom keyboards.

That was a very lame reason to ban someone. He's a good lad, very helpful and most of all a good bro. Maybe it was a mistake.

I must say this surprises me,  and I didn't see what happened last night, but there are probably certain things you can PM to a mod that will result in a swift reaction.  Total guess there, but something to consider.
