He should post all the rules that get you banned, and then keep them updated every hour.
The part I do not understand is why such vendors condone such behaviour by not saying anything....oh well, my gain, since I have read that is a good site... Now back to riding....Although perhaps more tolerant and forgiving (of .net's policies) members express their, "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" philosophy on this website, I'm personally of a different persuasion.
Rather, Mr. Edmund Burke persuades me, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
Thus, calling out the Administrator of another forum for his policies and practices does not send me, screaming, from the room on any notion of breach of "etiquette."
Effect? Negligible. Surrounded by fawning, sycophantic "approved," mercenary vendors, the other website will survive and prevail, enabling the continued infantile narcissism of its owner, and his absolutist and arrogant racial and political stance.
(Some day, I'll disclose what I REALLY think of the other website.)
Easy to explain; the vendors exploit the advertising of the website, cultivating the endorsement of the administator/owner for their mercenary purposes.The part I do not understand is why such vendors condone such behaviour by not saying anything....oh well, my gain, since I have read that is a good site...

Would this poster also happen to be a missing moderator here??Don't know what became of that poster; he disappeared from all our computer screens shortly after, although I know banning from KLRWorld was no factor in his disappearance; of no consequence in his overall scheme of things.
Wish I knew what became of that guy; wish he was back; he'll be missed on the upcoming Blue Ridge ride; wait! Maybe he'll show up!
Yea, verily!Would this poster also happen to be a missing moderator here??
You're exactly right.. I try to keep issues like that private on PM to save any possible embarrassment to the poster. If you politely explain what the issue is, privately, most will accept and apologize, and the issue is resolved..It seems these other forums and their moderators forget the usefulness of the Private Message feature incorporated by every forum I've ever participated in.
Exactly.. I and Sleddog attended a funeral this weekend for Curt Gran, the man behind Fuzeblocks http://www.fuzeblocks.com/ and one of those guys who was always willing to do whatever he could to help someone.. If you look at all the forums and riding associations he is missed by, it reminds you that there's more important things in life..gravity will get each of us soon enough!!
:64a:It sounds like they might have thin skin due to other issues in the past.. I always look at it this way.. If I'm trying to be funny, and they don't get it, I explain that it's a joke.. If they don't think it's funny, they're not smart enough to waste the time explaining it again..
Years ago I was on a BMW forum and people would freak because I didn't use BMW oil or filters.. Instead I used anybody's oil and I'd use AC Delco PF53 filters.. I figured that if GM said they were good enough, and they were cheap, they were good enough for me..
After it settled down by me telling them that when they started paying for my motorcycles, I'd run whatever oil they wished.. Until then, I'd run whatever the hell I wanted in my own property..
One day I joked about going to Germany and setting up a compressed gas canning facility in the parking lot in front of the BMW factory so I could get air straight from the Fatherland for people to top their tires off with "official" BMW air..
Some got quiet and others wanted to know if I was serious, as they would buy it..
