No, that is a threat, and I guess you thought I was kidding when I warned you via PM about doing that again. Had to get the last word, right, smartass?  Unfortunately for you, this is one little slice of the Internet where I always get the last word.


So censorship it tolerated on this forum? Why was one person in that flame war banned and not the other, especially when they posted personal info? Seems pretty heavy handed to ban someone for simply stating they will not hesitate to use their legal rights if someone is cyber stalking them.

This is your first and only post.  Bad start, assuming you're a new user at all, which I don't. ;)

Foulfoot did what he felt he must.  This site is ultimately his, and nobody has a right to be here.  Accept it.  (He's the DM, effectively.)

Pipes, is that you?

Give it up, man.  I warned you last night.

I don't think the issue was censorship here at all.  Unless I misunderstood what Foul posted, jpipes sent him a threatening email and Foul gave him a warning, then jpipes posted another threat in the thread and brew his second chance.  From his posting, it seems jpipes was threatening to involve official authorities such as police or whoever.

I don't think you can say this is heavy handed, warned once, then banned.

It's a source of never-ending amusement to me that people haven't the slightest idea of what they are talking about when they use the term "censorship."

It's an internet forum, genius. There are no guarantees of free speech implied or provided; the admin's word is that of God.

Then again, I'm not sure it matters, considering you are either:

A. Jpipes;
B. A troll.

Either way, you're soon to be banned and this thread is soon to be locked, so I'm not sure why I'm bothering ...

Sorry all, I didn't mean for it to end up this way.  :?  Some how I get called a psychotic stalker and yet the guy who accused me of it gets banned for threatening people and then refuses to go away.  :roll:

Hey has anyone else noticed that our new "friend" here is not showing up in the memberlist for the site?  We have 4 new user ID listed as of todays date and yet none of them correspond to jaeger?  :?

Pipes says he honestly has no idea why he was banned.. he says he can't even read the forum. So it doesn't seem the post was by him.. maybe a family member, a friend or something.

That was evident in his avatar.  Just check out what he does in his free time over at feldgrau, if you can stomach it.

I think people's question is, "Why are you the messenger?".

I should probably add, that man is this getting really really old...
