It seems like some of you are under the impression that one of the Mods had a vendetta against Tyson. Just so we are all clear, I banned Tyson. Me. Not Jack. Not Gary. Not Dino. Not Jon. Not Casey. I didn't discuss it with them. Tyson said he was taking his ball and going home at the same time as disrespecting Mods. I banned him. I deleted his posts. End of story. Get over it.

He broke rule #3, and had run-ins with the mods in the past. It was the straw that broke the camels back. Whats done is done. Grab a cigar, your favorite beverage, and chill.

Everyone needs to take a big step back. as someone who spent years moderating and eventually administering a once-popular form that died I want to tell you what we risk losing. I hate to see people forming camps and going after each other regardless of the reason.

Very few forums survived the onslaught of social media such as Facebook. To have a thriving Community here and on top of that such a great assemblage of generous knowledgeable people is rare. Everyone that has gotten to participate in it should be working to protect it.

Forums have never been democracies and there are no bills of Rights. I've been out of the loop but regardless there are right ways to handle things if you actually care about the place. I am sad that many on both sides seem willing to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

Did I miss something? Who did he attack? All I could see is that he made a blanket statement that one might or might not apply to oneself. Your choice whether you think the shoe fits or not. Hyperbole, perhaps. But I'm a parent and I took no offense. Quite the contrary; it made me think about how little this row means to my real life, which I believe was his intention. (Noting also, that much of the ire is directed at me in the form of quite personal attacks - If you don't believe it, or think the veiled references don't count, I could show you some rather unwholesome PM's I've received that will substantiate it quite clearly). It seems to me a lot of folks are looking for something to be offended by. You see that a lot in real life these days too... but it's usually no more compelling there than here.

Anyway, if it makes you happy...

@Humphrey's Ghost please refrain from using parenting as a general analogy or basis for any childish behavior displayed on this thread. Consider your hand slapped.

-AND-

@Deuce Da Masta please refrain from making personal attacks on individuals such as your accusatory statement "his heads up the mods asses". Consider your hand slapped.

Viva la resistance!

This shit is getting old too. You know exactly what HG was referring to when he spoke of Drans post @curmudgeonista. That was not a blanket statement and those of us who have been here long enough to know Dran really know what that post was about. You know it too whether you want to admit it or not. The blind eye to those who have their “heads up the mods ass” and then the sarcasm when the blind eye is called out.

No, I have no idea what you mean. Is Dran known for being a bad parent or something? News to me. But then, we were never that close and I sort of let personal stuff like that slide in one eye and out the other. I'm here for the love of cigars; no real interest in most member's personal lives outside of that context.

EDIT: Nevertheless, the admonishment still applies either way.

This is going to continue on the downward spiral and snowballing out of control until everyone stops talking about it. I will do my part and not make a single post on this topic going forward, hope everyone else does the same. Move on folks, no need to continue arguing. Lick your wounds if you feel you got hurt and MOVE ON. Every post in this thread or on this topic, good or bad, contributes to the problem. Stop talking about it. Smoke cigars, post pictures about what you smoke, ask about the proper way of seasoning your humidor, and post pictures asking if this is plume or mold (probably plume )

You know I ain't gonna lie to ya... I have no idea what your talking about..

If he did mention family issues and HG used that to purposely insult him, then that was wrong. Very wrong, we share alot of stuff around here that we don't tell others and it shouldn't be used against us for shock value.

The problem is that we'd never prove it. Unless he said that was the reason for his comment. He's denied it, so there's not much we can do..Contrary to recent sentiment we can't and won't go off of assumptions..

As far as favorites or buddies. Me and Tyson pmd ALOT. Same with dran. Not just forum crap, real life stuff. They're both banned, so explain to me how that shows the favoritism around here.

He knew what he meant by it just like I knew what I meant with what I said, except I will stand behind my statement....

It appeared to me he was talking to Matt.. I'm sure to everyone else, that didn't know or remember anything about dran and family issues, it appeared the same.

So it wasn't a personal attack, just a generalized statement saying that when a person who is supposed to follow the rules of the people that make the rules doesn't want to follow those rules anymore and leaves that the fault should be placed on the person who made the rules? This is getting confusing. That means that it's either an attack on Dran or an attack on the mods. Which was it?

One great big festering neon distraction
