    Default An unsatisfied customer?

    Over at the BCKS COIN forums, there is a "gentleman" making vague accusations about being "run from" SWC. Based upon the vague and repetitive nature of his accusations as well as the "over the top" method of making them, (As well as my experience here, as I am sort of a hot-head, and you continue to put up with me), I am inclined to believe he "protestesth too much" if you will.

    Anyone care to update me via PM (or in public, if you don't care) the other side of the story? If not, it doesn't really matter, life goes on, you know

    OK, saw the message thread. Started out very complimentary. Seems like someone didn't win a debate and took it personally. Either that, or they started posting some BS. Either way, I don't feel slighted in the least.

    Since there's probably building curiousity, you may as well look at his post history, which, by the way, doesn't show all the deleted posts not to mention all the behind-the-scenes discussion via PM.

    Default Short and Sweet

    If we are talking about the same guy - he got multiple PM and then public warnings here on the SWC. He would promise to 'clean up' his act and then slip right back into one-line derogatory 'drive-bys' without source or reason.

    We encourage people to post well-thought out items that support AND go against the current administration and its policies. I think all of you know that we are very 'fair and balanced', are very tolerant, and do not censor any view.

    I got very tired of cleaning up after the poster - images of Bush and Cheney as Beavis and Buttthead, one liners that all senior SNCO's and Officers were corrupt and incompetent - you should get the picture by now…

    I worked hard on this one as he had promise and seemed to possess some intelligence and had boots on the ground experience in Iraq - when he did not let rage get in his way - uncontrolled rage. I have better things to do with my time then to wake up at zero-dark early and begin my SWJ / SWC day by cleaning up one-line misdirected rage posts.

    He has had problems on other boards and sites and probably will continue to do so. As he remains a regular visitor to the SWC I am sure having a thread dedicated to his child-like behavior is a stroke to his ego. So be it - Bill and I have kept his e-mails to us private - ignored him as a non-person in our world. That said, maybe he will send us another 1-Cent donation via Paypal. Every little bit helps.

    That is how we work here – when someone gets banned – they have really pushed the limits…

    Jed,
    The post history link goes nowhere !

    Sent a PM off not knowing if we're talking about the same individual.

    Oh, yeah! THAT guy! His anger ran (runs?) deep, though I think most of his posts were before my time on here.

    Default Move along, folks, nothing to see here.

    That is all water under the bridge.

    I hope.
