If yunz guys really don't think this is his way of getting a dig in and stirring it up, then yunz really didn't know Tyson very well..
he was and STILL is a friend of mine. If the dude came up here, I'd let him crash at my house, smoke my cigars and drink my whiskey. But he never disrespected my home. However he did disrespect the forum and he won't be allowed back in this house.
Rule 6 says you cannot relay messages from banned members. If you don't think this is relaying a "message" you're wrong..
I put up with alot of crap. I have everyone's back until they put me in an indefensible situation. Then I'm forced to vote to drop them from the forum. How many posts have I deleted to CYA, how many "he's being mean to me" PMs have I settled, how many times have I argued to give a guy another chance because "he really didn't mean it like that"?
It's crap like this that's starting to make me think that I've been wrong. Should I take the rules as a end all be all and not look at the personal side of things. Would it of been better if I voted to ban Tyson months ago when he when this started, instead defending him for being passionate about his point, which read by another person would of been construed as extremely disrespectful ?
We don't release PMs , we don't discuss the actual goings on when someone gets banned. If we did ,a different tune would be sung. The things people(not just Tyson) think they can say to mods in PM is craziness. Then their buddies hear the story just from them, because we keep things private. We do that to protect the person that's gone. No one wants the venom they spit in a exit tirade to be posted in open forum. That's no way to go out.
As far as Tyson. As I've said before he's a friend, I consider him a stand up guy. He thought he was right, took it TOO far, made it personal, now he's gone. He didn't martyr himself for the sake of the forum, he got pissed said a bunch of stuff in the heat of the moment, wouldn't step it back, and decided he'd rather be banned than make it right.
So in conclusion in this [email protected]
1) Tyson won't be coming back
2) Tyson IS delivering a message in this post
3) defend him all you want, he was wrong. I know him and I bet when he cooled down he realized he pushed a little farther than he would of in a calmer state of mind.
4) in total disclosure, he sent back the gurkha of shame along with a great selection and a pleasant, heart felt note. Which is another reason I considered and will continue to consider him a friend and stand up guy, who had a bad day said some crap to a few people that he knew would get him booted.
