Hi MamaLama, themiz and members.
This past Friday...01/08...as I attempted to log on as woofer5... a message appeared:

"Your account has been locked out by an administrator
Please contact the forum administrator if you have any additional questions"

I have no idea why this occurred. I received no explanation or message.
Ok, so that same morning I emailed administration asking for clarification. (Does this constitute an "additional" question?)
Two and a half days later, still no response whatsoever.
This speaks volumes.

I'm not looking to "stir the pot" nor would I want to put the moderators or members in an uncomfortable position...however, an explanation would be nice....not only would this conform with normal forum etiquette, but simple common courtesy would dictate such.

I have had the privilege to co-administer and moderate several forums. I don't recall anyone ever being banned without prior warnings...and even in face of the most egregious violation...at least an explanation was offered.
I suspect this will be my first and last post with this account, but no big deal for sure.
Again, I have no desire to contest any "perceived violation", but the manner in which this went down...well, it just plain stinks.

To all the members here and their loved ones, I wish you a long and healthy future.
Take care.

woofer5,

I am so sorry you were banned in error. This is frustrating when it happens to our own forum members.

It appears you were swept up-- in error-- by the night crew banning spam/bots. Please accept my apology, Woofer.

I have emailed Admin to request you be reinstated and hope to hear back soon. Big Hugs

Thanks themiz.
I very much appreciate you and ML getting back to me and this was never about either of you.
As I told ML, I was just irked about what had happened and thought to myself why should I take this on?
I decided to create another account, get it off my chest and then just let it go.

Again, I want to thank you both for all that you do,

Hello woof, Been moderated, Been edited and received a few bans. Officially been here since 2008. I will note I quit a time or two. I see it as a badge of honor. I say what I think. Sometimes that can be confused with stirring the pot or even (Gasp!!) not politically correct. Nobody's perfect my friend. Hope they clear this up quickly but administration (Not moderators) sometimes drag there feet in these matters. I know, Take it from me.


See ya round,
Ziff

I am popping in from time to time, but not posting regularly. Feeling better every day, but face another surgery, I just don't know when. I'm glad this is settled down and no features permanently ruffled. Thanks Ziff for popping in. I've even banned David one time...fat fingers on that little tiny icon at the top. My bad.

It takes Peter a few days to get to some things. He is often working on upgrades and putting blocks in so our hacker friends can't fill up the various forums with nonsense ads from international companies and long postings in various languages no one can read anyway.

Night and HI to all.

Hey ML, Glad ya feelin better. Seems we just get our heads out of the potty long enough to appreciate what we had. Maybe that's a good thing. I just don't think we'd appreciate our often dull or sickly life without that perspective.

I don't wish anyone to get banned here but how the heck David only managed to skate by with one ban...... Well, Smooth talkin yankee knows when to quit I guess. Me? Not so much. Who knows? Maybe I'll add it to my new years resolutions, " I pledge not to write stuff that tick's folks off". Excuse me, Almost threw up just typing that. Might be easier just sticking to correcting my grammar and punctuation this year. Not!!!!!

Thanks Ziff, appreciate your support and don't change a thing...I always enjoy reading your posts.
Well, to state the obvious...I'm still here, posting under an alias...ooh...really livin on the edge, eh? Hahaha

ML...well better is better for sure, just wish it came quicker and easier for you. I didn't realize you still had another surgery coming up.
Mike's not complaining about your slacking yet is he?
Just kidding!
Wishing you a speedy recovery!

Speaking of Mike...how is he? I know the left elbow tendon repair went well. Any more or new tendinopathy?
That darn interferon. It's a love hate relationship...it helped save my life, but this tendon stuff is gettin old, but then...so am I :)

In any case, no doubt themiz will hold down the fort here so take all the time you need....but hurry back...hahaha.
