    Urlik's Banning is Ridiculous!

    Enough is enough!

    I don't know what the hell is happening with the administration of this place, but it seems like the asylum is being run by a few wacko inmates who've taken over.

    I've been reading Urlik's contributions to this site since he joined, and while we've had plenty of vehement political disagreements over the years, he's never been anything other than decent and reasonable. I can't imagine that he could have done anything to deserve getting banned, and frankly, based upon the attitudes of a few of the newest moderators, if anyone should get banned, it's them!

    If you guys (the admins and mods) can't get your collective acts together and figure out a way to play nice with each other, how the hell can you expect the membership to do the same?

    Steve has been a loose cannon and if I had to guess, I'd say he probably goaded Urlik into a fight. Just look at his posts today. Is that the sort of moderating we can expect? Wiping out post after post because you don't like what someone has to say?

    Apparently this place is going all to hell. Maybe it's time to replace everyone with folks who won't treat us with utter condescending disrepect.

    Gee, let me guess... Now Steve or Jay or Thanasi's going to ban me, too...

    Some of the higher-ups need to evaluate who they give Mod status to. 20vv is a joke. Left-wing nut job. I will be the first to say he should be GONE!

    That and probably a refusal to bow down to the bossman and his minion. Urlik has never been anything but respectful on this site. Even when he disagrees with people he does it in a way that I can honestly say that I haven't learned.

    I wouldn't want him to be gone, but I don't think he should be a mod.

    You know Jamie, I could have very easily banned you, but screw it. I'll let your word go out to the masses and let them chime in and make up their own minds. You've been a PIA for a long time, but I think with this thread, you've taken it over the top.

    Finally, voice of reason from an old timer ^^, well put JazzMat . I just now noticed the selectively removed posting ... wow ... rather immature & petty from the mods . Doesn't look like this new crop of mods can handle constructive criticism very well. Urlik deserve much more than this, always 2 sides of the coin, hope he comes back, I would like to hear his side.

    What is up with 20vv thug's like attitude resorting that EASY ban stick every time instead of countering intelligently to criticism. At this rate, Sal for mod next?

    Add me to the ban list if they decide to ban JazzMat, this place is heading to 'Tex town.

    Greek, I'm afraid that JazzMat is spot on in this case, and have you read some of 20vv's condescending reponses members? Just a thought from a concerning long time member.

    You know since this being made public, lets go. first off i got lot of Im's from people who saw this coming. I posted it up to let people in general know a mod would be missing. I didnt say anything out of line or do anything outside my abilities. You that know me i'm shocked at the things your saying. you all talk about abuse of power, some of you need to talk about Jealousy.

    I'm not going into detail, nor am i going to sit here and take it and If you IM me talking slick its going to be forwarded to superior so be warned. you have something to say. Say it right here.

    I have said what I want to say but I thought you would appreciate my PM's. I feel I should not talk behind your back so I PM'd you. Suck it up...you are a mod, not a censor.

    Bans are random around these ways, some get away with things and some don't.....and some get caught up in the middle. I've been here since 98 and even been banned myself. Also let's not act like there hasn't been some pressure towards Steve since he became a mod! I've noticed that myself, maybe I should rephrase pressure to jealousy.

    Steve is a known member around our East coast community, knowing him personally I'm sure Urlik earned it. Not only that, I've also seen Urlik reach Sciteach status on # of occasions before...

    Regardless of what happened I'm sure Urlik will be back, so you guys can have him back and enjoy him. Or maybe Sharky is just wearing off on you guys little too much.

    sorry Shark, had to throw a gay joke in there. I love you man!!!

    i dont think is fair from ppl to be calling them power hungry they have been workng for FREE to make this better for all of us. no more spam ads, and garbge around. STOP WHINING AND BE GLAD. i think many members here are a little jelous they didnt get chosen to be mods and are hating on the ones that did.

    As I posted in another thread, the word BANNED under Urlik's name on his posts and profile would be a pretty good hint to everyone that he is not with us for now.

    You seriously think people are jealous of you because you were made a Moderator?
