I'm sorry, it's just not working out. We're going to have to let you go.

Ultimately, the problem seems to boil down to this: YOU seem to think that everything you have to say is timely, relevant and very very clever. However, *I* seem to think that everything you have to say is stupid and annoying.

Now normally, I would let all that slide, but the problem is you really seem to lead this double life. All your private messages sent out have the word "fucktard" in them for some reason. It's NOT okay to be trolling, belligerent and send flames in private any more than it is in person.

My impression is that you're just not happy here. I know I'M not happy you're here, and dammit, I actually own this board, so I can do something about it. If you can't stop coming here on your own, I can ban the account and make it easier for you.

So please make your goodbyes and I'll take care of that banning tomorrow morning.

I'd also encourage you to continue to submit columns, as thinking out what you're saying well in advance tends to suit you better than the instant nature of message board posting, in my opinion.

Those of you who are big Travis fans can still catch him at the website he plugs, the DVDVR message board and I'm sure he can tell you where else he'll be. Any issues with MY role in this can send me a private message or call me out in public depending on how feisty you feel. But please, use your head before you feel you MUST jump on this thread. As you all know, I tend to ban people in WAVES so don't give me another excuse. ;-)

Thanks,

Can admins read private messages between other wieners? I've sent several to myself as sort of a test, I wouldn't want you guys thinking I was some wierdo...

Uh, yeah.

Funny, I hadn't noticed. No indication was given. Except all that public attempting to show me up, which was gleefully no sold as it's pretty silly to respond to flames and trolls from the owner of a forum, isn't it?

Well maybe if certain lonely, jealous, pathetic, unattractive and generally uninteresting people didn't feel the need to troll me, I wouldn't send them such love notes. Why don't you just post a list of names, while we're airing everything out? We can call it the Chirs Zimmerman's Fucktard Fanbase Directory.



    My impression is that you're just not happy here. I know I'M not happy you're here, and dammit, I actually own this board, so I can do something about it.

Why the wait, Chris? I mean, really, you obviously think I'm "not cool" because I don't end every post with a wink a smile and an ENORMOUS sig pic. You held out for a couple months. Did somebody go crying to you like a little bitch?



    If you can't stop coming here on your own, I can ban the account and make it easier for you.

Uh, yeah.



    So please make your goodbyes and I'll take care of that banning tomorrow morning.

But you just said...eh, nevermind.



    I'd also encourage you to continue to submit columns, as thinking out what you're saying well in advance tends to suit you better than the instant nature of message board posting, in my opinion.

This is where you lose me. Go read my latest post at Random (if SafeSurf or whatever will allow you to do so). It's no different than anything I've posted here. I haven't written a column for your site in forever, because honestly I got zero feedback from your readership. I get more hits now, and more feedback. Your site is fine and good, but really Chris, can you expect me to want to do business with you after you perused my private messages and booted me with no warning? Thanks but no thanks.
And just so that doesn't sound totally backhanded- you're better than Scott Keith. Pretty much.



    Those of you who are big Travis fans can still catch him at the website he plugs, the DVDVR message board and I'm sure he can tell you where else he'll be.

Everyone QUICK, call your girlfriends/wives.
But really, the "website I plug" isn't for everybody. If you can't see the humour in life's minor incidental tragedies, if you can't appreciate that people aren't best buddies all the time, don't bother. I can only handle like 2 death threats a day. The rest of you (those WITH brains, like our pal cfgb for instance) can find my work at www.randomwrestling.org .



    Any issues with MY role in this can send me a private message or call me out in public depending on how feisty you feel.

Muy caliente.



    But please, use your head before you feel you MUST jump on this thread. As you all know, I tend to ban people in WAVES so don't give me another excuse. ;-)

See, the winking smiley makes it all make sense. Or not.

In closing I'd like to thank the rube community (you know who you are...right?) for providing me with minutes of entertainment and all 2 of you who actually read and responded to my posts in a reasonable and adult fashion. As for those of you who don't like me, I'd like to extend an invitation- to bite my hot white ass. Feel free to grab a clue, kids.

It's alright- I'm still cool, and I'm still the Juice.

Yes, the admins have access to the entire database, which includes all the private messages. Although we CAN read private messages, I generally stay away from that area. Aaron probably prints them all out and shares them with his friends, however. ;-)

Eh, I liked Travis well enough. He trolled me a few times in another thread, and he was an acerbic bastard, but he did offer an occasional intelligent comment. Sometimes I feel like people agree too much on this board. No interesting debate ever comes from "violent agreement," or whatever the catch-phrase sweeping the old EZBoard was. And that is, I think, what this board is about. Discussion and debate.

I will defer to the Z, however, and concede that Travis didn't offer much in the "civil discussion" department, and you can't have a good debate when it all devolves into mindless trolling.

Ah well. Lest anyone think I'm contesting the decision to ban Travis, I'm not. Not only is it not my place, but I can see the rationale.

Fear the banning lightning of CRZeus.

It's one thing to violently disagree. It's another thing to make an ass of yourself while doing it.

Travis, I think people would be more "adult" in responding if you actually treated them with respect, isntead of being a full blown idiot. I mean, I posted in a thread of yours my opinion, which was quite clear and consise with reasonable comments, and you decided to reply by making fun of my nationality (being Canadian), and a few other choice words (sadly, "fucktard" was not amoung them).
