At one point I thought FOX was going to add big red circles that would float around the screen to highlight whoever was talking. This would help people follow the conversation properly.

In speaking with him he knows exactly why he was banned but doesn't agree with it. He also again publically apologized for making comments the admin THOUGHT were threats against him personally. He seems to have admitted he was being hot-headed which is more than I can say for some people in the overall thread. In addition, the censorship comment seems to be related more to someone being banned and not being allowed to defend themselves, that is all. The comments posted don't seem to indicate a threat that could be considered irrational or out of place. They didn't say "fuck you foulfout eat my ass" they simply stated what I would hope any sane person would say, that they reserve the right to pursue their own defense, be it legal or otherwise when it comes to someone stalking them.

BClakrie, I wouldn't suggest that posting to a forum repeatedly to make a point constitutes stalking. Hunting down obscure info on a specific person to attack them in a public forum does.

Some of the content at the end of the now-locked thread from last night was either edited or removed.  

Why the need to come here and post on behalf of Pipes?

Right....

I am tired of this crap. Stalking someone constitutes continously pursuing someone and harrassing them wherever they go, online or not.  Me posting factual information on one message board to refute a persons blatant lies during a 24 hour period does not constitute "stalking" in any way shape or form. Perhaps you need to read up on what stalking really is.  That said, I really could care less what you clowns think, whoever you are.  If you think that I am stalking him, great, call the cops and have them do something about it, but until that happens, shut the f**k up about it already.  

It is so cruely ironic that these clowns keep coming on here yelling *stalker* at the top of their lungs and yet they seem to be missing the point that it is quite apparent that their insistance in coming here, even after they have already been told rather forcefully to leave by the site admin, is far more *stalking* than anything that I did yesterday.  Funny how I am the "stalker" yet it seems that I am the only person still being chased.   Get a freaking life loser.

I successfully banned the IPs that jpipes uses at home, at work, probably his friend's house, and now I've also successfully blocked his neighborhood Kinko's.  I sincerely hope that other patrons of that particular Kinko's are not Acaeum fans.

I'll leave this thread here, if only to avoid receiving a hundred PMs about it.  The reason he was banned was clearly posted in that other thread -- warned once, did it again.  I also have a generally low tolerance for asshats, especially at eleven o'clock at night with the baby still awake and screaming.

Foul, how was he able to post here using IDs that are(and weren't) listed in the membership list?  I for the life of me can't figure that out.

Neither of those accounts are currently active, and your account needs to be active in order for you to appear in the memberlist.  When you register, you need to have a valid e-mail address, and then you activate your account through the e-mail that the board sends you.

I imagine what happened is that he registered (with a valid e-mail address), posted a message, then changed his e-mail address in his profile to a fake address.  That de-activated his account.

There will probably be a few more "jpipes supporters" popping up in the next few days, as he runs around town jumping onto connections that haven't been banned.  Eventually he'll get bored.  It's a pain having to drag your laptop all the way to Starbucks just to access The Acaeum.

Not to belabor this thread too much, but that's kind of a funny image ... some poor guy, with absolutely no connection to jpipes, suddenly unable to connect here: "Damnit! Where did the [email protected]&@!*!% Acaeum go?"

For what it's worth,  jaeger means both a "hunter" and a "light infantryman."

Indulge me:

The Hessians that fought in America during the American Revolution included light infantry companies called jaegers...often clad in green.  The Hessian jaegers (who were not all from Hess) seem to have been used in a slightly different capacity than light infantrymen in British and American regiments.  They seem to have been trained and equipped more as marksmen...with special firearms...than as bayonette or spear-armed assault troops.  Presumably, they were country boys, familiar with hunting, who were outfitted to take advantage of their abilities.

Jaeger companies figured prominently at Long Island and the Brandywine.  I also presume that there were jaegers among the Hessians captured at Trenton and Saratoga...although accounts of those battles most prominently feature Hessian grenadiers and dragoons.

The World War II German equivalent of an American "paratrooper" was called a fallschirmsjaeger (don't quote my spelling, but I am right about the term).  That is, a light infantryman who uses a parachute (fallschirm)

Yes, jaegermeister means "master of the hunt."  A reading of the contents that go into brewing Jaegermeister leaves one wondering how anyone ever thought it up.

Too bad about jpipes.  And...no...knowing some German and some military history does not make me his secret alter-ego.

Coincidentally, I'm reading a book right now about the American Revolution ("1776", by David McCullough). The chapter I just finished recounts a Hessian regiment of jaegers storming Fort Washington.According to the book, one of Washington's poorer decisions to leave the fort occupied as he retreated from Manhattan to New Jersey.

It also notes the jaegers were thorough professionals, with officers not considering it part of their duty to determine which side was in the right in the dispute.

One wonders about Washington's military judgement in the 1776 campaign leading up to and away from New York.  I suspect there were political considerations affecting his military decisions...or maybe just inexperience.

I would be interested to know, was it a "regiment" of jaegers or a force of jaeger companies drawn from different regiments.

In British and American regiments, they would be regarded as "flank companies," along with the grenadiers...and were often detached from their regiments and brigaded together for special missions.

For instance, it was a brigaded mass of grenadiers and light infantrymen who were battered and driven so badly at Lexington and Concorde...saved and then joined in route by 1200 regular infantry.  It was the confusion caused by mixed regiments and mis-matched officers and troops that contributed to the debacle.

I see that I have gone off topic....I'll post it anyway...hope someone was interested.... :?

Look, for one thing I likely won't get tired of accessing this site or the forum. In fact it's pretty depressing not having access to it during the day at my normal job. Drats. One thing I'd love to know though is why am I banned from viewing the main site as well?? Just doesn't make any sense.

Anyway, that being said I want everyone here on the forum to know, bclarkie aside, I *never* meant any harm or distress to anyon here. I am very sorry everything fell apart and in the end I was banned. To this second I disagree with being banned, but as a fellow forum owner I understand and support the right of the admin to make their own rules. And besides, who would win a fight between me and bc? He has like 4000 messages. Clearly I loose there. Anyway, I support the admin on banning me purely because that is his right, but I still feel strongly that the reason itself was entirely unjustified. Entirely.

I want to say again that I publically apologize to the entire forum for the fact that my brother bid on my auctions and that any of it approached concerns and realities of shilling. I really honestly do apologize and it's never occured since. That is for the record. It was a mistake and I fully apologize. My brother is real though, as is his account, etc, etc, etc.

In closing, I will be around of course, but not very actively. I have around 5000 minis to sort through now so that will take up a lot of my time. For those that have been emailing me we will continue to be in contact of course.

Oh, btw, really neat news... today at a local rumage sale I found a copy of Talisman 2nd ed with the Adventure exp!! For 2 bucks! Wow.

Anyway, all the best to all of you and thanks for reading.

Like that really has anything to do with why you were banned.  :?   By using that logic, bclarkie or any other member with several thousand posts could do pretty much anything they wanted, piss off every forum member, break any and all internet protocol and just be a complete dick and they would still get the benefit of the doubt.  I dont think so.
