I just got BANNED at Garage Jourlal.
« on: July 13, 2011, 02:33:34 PM »
When I logged in last night, the screen flashed the message:
BANNED   reason: RACIST    return: NEVER

I haven't been to this website in a few days, so don't know really what pissed them off.
 Could it be because I won't donate to the Obama re-election fund?

Maybe someone out there on GG has an answer?

Did you post anything mentioning race or Obaaaaaaama?  Maybe an offhand comment  in a free parking thread?   sctatcherhead   Anything can and will be misunderstood by someone there, and they will flag it.

It certainly won't still be there now if you got sent to band camp for it.  Worse things can happen than being banned there, like broken fingernails.    ;)

You got banned, strange. From what I know about you from your posts you sure don't seem to be rabble rouser.

I keep expecting to get a banned message every time. I log on over there. And I haven't posted over there for a coons age.

My thoughts exactly. Unless the post was deleted, I see nothing... Which is entirely possible.

Funny, I reported a blatant troll post in the HF Pass/Fail thread, and it is doing nothing but growing. Haha.

Was probably the post you made in the target pistol thread saying you only have one .22. I don't disagree with your reason for preferring larger calibers but you could've worded it a little more tactfully th-wink

Yea, I know. I have sent out some pm's to their leader's as it is mystifying to me still.
I go there to read topics that are interesting. I can't remember the last time I posted anything there.
The "mrholeshot" trips were always "interesting".

I refuse to play at the level of most of them.  I don't like going inside the septic tank and trying to dig deeper.  I have actually repented on all my responses lately and NOT hit the post button. 

I'll be a sissy if it means that I don't have to swim in a septic tank, thank you!   coffeex

I didn't see the posts from him in the referenced thread.  In fact, I don't think I've even been in that thread.

If it was something "racist," (and I'm kind of tired of that word) then what I can say is that the Big Man over there seems not to have much tolerance for that.

I'm not playing any games.  mrchuck and I had a few PM exchanges when he first joined over there.  I had no problems with him, and that's all I wanted to convey in this thread.  I know I am a target for the crowd here that doesn't like there.  So, if I had nothing to do with something people are upset about, I see no problem in making that known.

Just because I personally don't agree with the administrator at GJ's quirks does not mean I'll pick on you. Heck I'm too jealous of all the Blackhawk stuff to do that.

Besides you post some interesting things.

I saw the way it would be confusing when I read his response. I was kind of hurt that he would think I was sniping at him though. I may mutter things about Ryans rampant megalomania and extreme schizophrenic psychosis but I like most of the over worked and abused mods over there.

I have to say most since I haven't been over there reading all the threads for a long time and don't know who all the mods are currently.

Thanks Bull for the contact. I got an e-mail from Ryan. He banned me. Case is closed.

No problems here bull. The reason I quit posting over there had nothing to do with the mods. I just disliked the attitude presented by Ryan in his posts.

I have seen it before and I knew the results that were coming.

You dont have to share the content, but did he at least clarify the reason? From your first post you seemed surprised of the ban, so i assume your comment wasnt that "bad".

Just curious, does any one know Ryan's age ?

Ryan is right about 35 years old numerically speaking, which in no way is connected to ones maturity or interpersonal/people communication skills in many instances!  :conf:

Thanks UB, I was just curious, I would have pegged him on being much younger..

Yes I am sure you would have, and rightfully so, I figure he was likely an only child which might explain a bit though. (No offense to any "only children here")  ;D

I'm sure he does, but is there any way of knowing/finding out if Ryan lurks over here?
If he does, some comments made here probably add a lot of weight as to who he watches more closely on GJ.

I don't imagine Ryan has much time to worry about the happenings at this little small potatoes site. I cannot really see him as giving a rip one way or another about this place.

I didn't see the posts from him in the referenced thread.  In fact, I don't think I've even been in that thread.

That doesn't exonerate you at all. Since you're one of Ryan's cronies, you're just as much to blame.

Remember, bull does not own the site and does not control the banning of members Merk. He even said he had not been in the thread, cut him a little slack here Merk!

+1  Merk I can understand you being pissed at Ryan, but you ride Bull's ass pretty hard and as far as I know, Bull wasn't your problem.  Let Bull come here and talk tools.  Yeah he defends GJ and himself sometimes and there are times where I think he could be silent (as I stated in another thread) but you go over the top a little.  Just my opinion!

I guess its like food.  As much as I like steak, an Italian dinner is good too once in a while.  I drop in now and then and find some good threads.  I don't post if its a pissing match going on, but there are often folks with pressure washer questions or toolbox value questions and I'll pipe in.  I'm here 98% of the time, and there 2%.

I will freely admit, when a train wreck thread is linked here, I definitely look, so yeah, it is like a car accident lolx

Also remember, a lot of guys here spent a lot of time there, so we have a few friends there and its good to check in.

I would say thats pretty accurate.   I would imagine If certain things hadent changed in certain ways everyone would still be there.

There is more traffic over there which is good and bad. Good as you can try and max out your post count,  bad as in too much stupidness.



My only complaint about this board is there's too many different fouroms to look at (I've still got dail-up sadx).

The unread topics feature works pretty well over here. Gets everything you've missed on a couple pages. Also if you're only interested in some sections I think you can set up to ignore the ones you don't want to view. Rusty should be able to help with that if you can't figure it out yourself.

It's way better than new posts on the journal. That sucker seems to reset every time you load one of their pages. A workaround for it is when someone posts a trainwreck link here open it in a private tab.

I just got banned too. Bummer. For drama. I didnt feel dramatic about my posts but it's not my site. Would have been nice to get an explanation or an email. I guess Ryan is not that professional.

Anyhoo, glad I found this place, wish I had sooner. It seems this is what everyone posts about in the suggestion thread over there- subforums, etc. and no mod headaches over here. I'll do my best to be a positive contributor and not cause any drama.

I for one and I am sure many others would call out anyone who repeatedly started trouble.  Not that we won't tolerate the accidental slip up, cause most of us have goofed up now and again.

I still have an account over there and check in regularly but I guess there plan is working.  there is so little interesting going on over there that I got bored.  I do like to talk garages, cars, and tools but I like to talk about other things too.  and lately I have not really been doing much with the garage.  just been working on cars so I get bored when there is not much else going on.  I like to hang out and chat with other guys with my same interests about other topics.  so I have been posting very little over there lately.  not because I am mad at the site or because I am tired of the drama.  I am tired of there not being anything interesting to post about. headscratch

Any thoughts on Nate, the dude from Alaska recently banned?  Seems he got in a pissing match over lawn care with some other guy.  And lost.

  I was thinking he could fit in here, his material was pretty good.    I have no clue where to contact him.

Edit:  based on new info it seems he may have issues if he were to be active here.  That info will not be revealed.

I had several or maybe many intneractions with Nate, done remember any of them being negative. Wasnt it Nate359 or something like that, did he work on non-fixed winged air craft ? Have I got the right guy ?

Nate has posted here before, hasn't he? He is pretty opinionated and isn't afraid to call a spade a spade. Seems like a good guy to me and besides he's a Mainuh, need more of them on here :)

How does Spidergearsman not get banned from GJ. 
I wonder if his 7700+ posts have anything to do with it.
I can't remember the last time I'd seen a positive reply from him, everything is either negative or sarcastic.

Very true.  SK beat me to that reply, but SGM has been temp banned at least once over there.  That was why he joined up here and swore to never go back to GJ ::)

I generally like his posts because I can see the bitter humor in them that flys over the heads of a lot of guys over there, but at times it's a bit much myopinion

I guess I must have missed the humour. As far as I can see, he's a complete troll and I can't stand his idiotic stream-of-consciousness "comments".

Please don't take offence.  He reminds me of the crusty, sarcastic, and pessimistic older guys I've worked with in the past.

I've never thought he had much to add, but he seems to have gotten worse over time. Just radiates "bitterness"...

Post count and length of membership means nothing at GJ. Merk had almost 15,000 posts when he left and I was north of 9,000 myself so 7700 means nothing. I don't believe Ryan actually cares what member he shows the door, if he decides he wants you out of the pool that is really all that matters to him.  coffeex

I completely agree.  Post count and member participation doesn't mean anything to Ryan.  He'll ban someone with 10K posts as fast as he'll ban someone with 100 posts.  It also won't mean anything to Ryan if there's a dispute between someone who's been on the site for years and proved to have been an asset and resource, and one that just joined and is causing all sorts of drama.   th-wtf

I'm pretty sure I got banned by Marcie, not Ryan, due to the collateral effects.

Is there a question here?

I for one am glad to see him post (it means he still watches and checks in from time to time) and hope it means that he will eventually rejoin us.

I'd also like to know what he means by Collateral effects?
