3801  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Jerry Falwell dead on: May 15, 2007, 08:34:18 PM
1: I'm no supporter of this person.  I'm a christian, he's totally misrepresents what a Christian is.

2: I'm fully aware of Falwell's character, and understand why many people don't like him.  

3: I received a report from a user stating that the thread was in bad taste.  I was trying to guide the thread from going down that path.

4: When a user delibertely states that he won't follow the warning, that's where I gave my warning of if the thread gets out of hand (I shouldn't have said continued) then I would lock it.

I'm sorry--respect is earned.  Jerry Falwell earned no respect with his bigoted life.

And I see nothing about "respect for the dead" in the CoC.

Has anyone heard anything about Iron Horse Mountain Bikes.  This guy on craigslist was selling a Trek 720 for $75, and a Iron Horse for 100.  I'm meeting with him tomorrow to look at it, and he agreed to $80 for the Iron Horse.  The trek had already sold.  I don't know the model, since he was at work when I called, but in general how's the Iron Horse.

Looking at the above example posts, I'm having a hard time finding any justifcation for it. So he had some 'pirated' dreamcast software for sale with his dreamcast system, but when it was brought to attention, he asked the thread to be locked.

A joke about Hetz? Wow..

And finally calling an old lady who ran into (and possibly killed) a guy an "old cunt"? I guess that could be considered inappropriate (we're all civilized adults here, at least I think) but is that grounds for being banned?
Did anyone honestly really take any offense to that?

It's one thing to ban the Crowleys who come here posting 'goatsee' crap or pictures of animals, but to ban long-standing members of the community to what seem like such small offenses, IMO, is taking it too far.
Of course I'm not a mod and this isn't my board (so I completely respect what Ron & crew do with their house) but at the same time, it's not too hard to tell when someone is a real problem around here and actually deserves to be banned.
To me personally, Kobra didn't seem like one of those people.

Just my 2 cents.

Kobra wasn't banned for a single incident.  It was a series of actions that had taken place over time.  A few months back we modified the COC to add/change some rules, and added a guideline to what would happen if a person broke these rules.  Everyone got an email from the boards of these changes, and they have been posted on the forums. 

We didn't go out of our way to try to get Kobra off these boards.  The same goes for Hetz when he was banned.  It was a series of events that caused it.  Kobra had many warnings about his demeanor here.  As warning stated earlier, once  you get a warning or temp ban, mods will pay more attention to that person.

There has been some people who have been banned, came back, and since has had no problems with the community.  Unfortunately that wasn't the case for Kobra.

hardly.  He played through it for over an half our.  Afterwards we were moving furniture.  At one point we had to move a bed, and that was the last straw for him, you could see the pain shoot to his head. 

Brittle might be word you're looking for Tongue
3815  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / So I broke my brother in law's finger in 3 places yesterday on: May 06, 2007, 05:52:30 PM
Last night we had the in-laws over for an early mother's day gathering.  My brother in law and his son brought over the football, and we throwing it around after dinner. 

I threw the ball to my Brother in Law and it jammed his finger.   We ended up playing another 30 mins thinking it was just dislocated finger.  When we got inside we checked the damage and his finger was really swollen.  We still figured it was dislocated, he even popped it back in place.  This morning he went to the doctor, and turns out I broke his finger in 3 places. 

I think I need to try out for the niners.  I always had a good arm and decent aim.

Blake is pretty good, he won't win, but he's good.  At first he heavily relied on the beat box, and I'm glad he held back, because it was quickly becoming old.  He brought it back at the best moment.  However, he doesn't have the talent to be #1.  Melinda or Jordan will win it.

cool video...great concept and pretty neat implementation.  i think it's something like that video that really shows just how much games like Guitar Hero and DDR have embedded themselves into pop culture now.  the song isn't bad either.  i've heard a couple other Switchfoot songs before and thought they were decent...might have to check out the new album icon_cool

Oh Gravity is a good album, but Meant to Live is what took them from a limited Christian Market to the secular scene.  That album is my favorite of theirs, there are too many good songs.  Oh Gravity falls closely behind.

Switchfoot is one of my favorite bands, and they have a new video out that features Guitar Hero, thought some people might enjoy it.  It's not that great, but still a fun video

Jeez! Glad to hear mom is ok, but I have to wonder what the difference in velocity was for this collision!

Was this a freeway or an expressway or something because that looks like, at least, 30mph to do that to a civic.

I've always hated the bug for its looks and the pricks I've known who drive them, but it looks like I have to admire the engineering.

It happened on I-5, and she said she was going 60mph.  It happened on a spot where two lanes merge.  She said she didn't even see him at first, and then realized he was right there.  She said he was driving really slow.
