Well welcome aboard (again). As long as you swear allegiance to the complete obliteration of that dutch guy, you will be welcomed back with open arms. And if you don't, Asher will lub you anyway.

Lurker. Lurker the Second is, uhm, an AE or DL or something. You might think it's pretty stupid, but it fools 97.5 % of the posters here.

MOBIUS- feel free to carry on with whatever you're hoping to achieve, but I'm going to politely ask you not to put in on the History forum again. I'm not interested in Poly-tics or power games. The threads will just get quietly deleted, so it's just a question of how much of your time you want to waste, and how much you want to annoy me on an individual level.

Hi TCO. Only the best people get banned.

It's a little authoritarian to decide to delete all of his threads just because of a joke written on another website. A one line joke at that.

Yeah, thanks for the discretion. Their name comes up every now and then, especially when it's stock is low (is rather high lately). I think it would be a little tough to raid because the family still owns a lot of it and it is still a very paternalistic, old style company. It's older than Italy or Germany as states. Breaking it up would be the appeal. But I'm not sure if all the product brands would have the same value once separted from the mother ship.

How are you doing, duck? What are your interests nowadays?

If it's the company I think it is, I had to deal with some royal assholes from there when I worked at IBM.

KH is taking a leave of absence from Poly. You missed some drama. Laz reached his midlife crisis and followed in Ming's footsteps so he can get off deleting threads and banning people as well.

TCO

Sorry about that. Customers can be jerks. They are actually pretty nice internally. I would prefer more of a harsh edge, but more skill, personally.

Laz is funny. I think he has a heart at times. I know of several posters who look to him as a role model.

Kitty is one of my favorite posters and adds a lot to the site.

Poly, poly, poly...

On a related note, it seems our friends at Apolyton are in need of someone with strong SQL and programming skills and are recruiting. :(

Remind me who I've banned. It must have been during a senile moment, because I certainly can't remember it.

Your squabbles with Poly are absolutely nothing to do with me.

Asher
19-07-2007, 16:21:53
Baby steps, Laz. First comes the congenial moderator position in a barren forum, within a year you will be sending PMs to emphasize that you ARE A MAN and you are NOT AFRAID TO BAN users.

READ RESPOND OR BE RESTRICTED!!!!!

Laz should publicly state that he has no problem with posters reposting the PMs he sends them. Transparency would ensure civility and prevent him from turning into a power-mad cunt like Ming.

This time I just decided to leave. Apparently DanQ doesn't see the irony involved in banning me for posting a thread entitled "Fuck the Mods" in which I explain I'm going to leave Poly for a while. So I'm both banned and I'm not going to go back for a while.

And I've been banned once before. That was when I spent a few days reaming Winston. Ming wrote me and asked me not to continue. I told him he would have to ban me to make me stop, so he did.

You told them to fuck off. they banned you.

that said, they have been getting too harsh and boring and you are one of my faborite posters and it is the natural evolition that to combat boredom more shenanigans are needed to keep things new and ionteresting.

And if someone quit in a malicious way (not saying you did, but I can imagine situations where someone did), I would certainly fire them if it was an option. for instance discharge from the military for a deserter.

I said right there I would be back, but that I was taking a few months. I've said that before, and every time I've backed it up.

You told them to fuck off. they banned you.

I have no problem with it; I just find it amusing...

a) I did quit in a 'malicious" way. I wanted to let them know why I was leaving. And given that I curse all the time over there, I'd say that Dan's sensitivity on this occasion says a lot more about how defensive he was feeling than it does about how bad I was being (didn't go around auto-censor btw)

b) Firing somebody when they're quitting is a bad idea. Just write them a shitty recommendation if they ever ask for one.

c) AWOL in Army is bad analogy. Posters are not under contractual obligation to bulletin boards...
