That's passive-aggressive.
I don't know that it's passive aggressive. I have only been here a year, but it seems that name/shame threads targetted at other members isn't encouraged.

This was thread was where the OP wanted to voice support for the forum owner and tried to be as vague as possible about the offender.

The OP was to Cris, and I think Cris probably knew what it was about.

Some knew, but I'm not surprised others didn't know who or what, or had only seen small samples from one thread or another and didn't connect the pattern. Not knowing what or who a thread is about is relatively common I think.

I'm guessing that some of the reactions you are getting are probably related to offering an opinion without knowing the situation, not because you didn't know who or what it was about.

Congrats on being the first one.

That's more offensive to me than anything else posted anywhere,.

You have NO right to call me a twat.
You were the first one, dear.

You asking for more information is fine. Saying it was Beebo's job to provide it isn't. She was being respectful of not making a thread calling out someone, while at the same time being able to rant about how I was being treated.

Whatever the case, it is done.

Not my bad. Incomplete information was presented.

It's NOT my job as a reader to look up users' posts that would support a thread creator's contentions.

It's the thread creator's job.
Why are you taking such a weird stance to this thread, you immediately fell on the side of Quad before knowing the details and now you're acting as if it is everyone else's responsibility to fully inform you on details without a little reading yourself - incidentally you liked my post, had you read it you would have realised that it wasn't in agreement with what you were saying at all. If you skim read then you will miss a lot of info, and calling someone out for your own lack of reading comprehension is really poor form.

Agreed. Except my opinion was based upon what I had already seen of him. NOT some new thread which wasn't even referenced.

C'mon. You create a thread to call someone out? Back it up.

Oh, ffs, it's no one's job to provide you with links. To anything. Beebo posted what she wanted to post...if you needed more, you could have looked. Instead, you decided to go all pedantic about people not following your silly rules regarding how posts should be made.

Congratulations. The thread entitled 'Banning Assholes' is now all about you, Jolene Benoir.

I respectfully disagree.

It was her job. That comes with the territory of calling someone out, and creating a thread to do so.

Is anyone misinformed/confused as to the idea behind this thread?

Fair enough. Regardless, I would hope you know that I would not ban solely on someone's whim or lightly. I already knew what she was referring to. He had been sniping at me for awhile, though I have called him out for being a complete idiot in the past. If I had not been aware, I would have asked, as you did, but not chided the OP or made a snap judgement without more info.

Ultimately, his banning had nothing to do with this thread.

I'm glad you said that. I'm not laughing, but I think it's because I'm a bit puzzled by some of the reactions here.

I thought maybe it was "Fuck with Pancake Friday".... again.

You should really try the silicone lubricant from an industrial supply place.

Far superior to WD-40.

And what's wrong with sitting in the sand with a bucket on your head?

See if I take you on any desert excursions if you come to AZ.

I have only stated that the OP should have provided more info in response to the peanut gallery that it was MY job to do the research.

I'm of the opinion that if you create a thread, give folks a clue what you are talking about.

It's not hard, and I'm not being a twat, to request that.

And yes, I know that you wouldn't ban someone based upon one thread.

You're doing it again, but I'm too good a mood today. Please stop throwing me underhand softballs, it's hard not to swing at them.

I'm going to take the high road here and just state that we disagree, and not post what is comedy 101 to me.

Good luck!

Enjoy that *high road* as what you have posted here, so far, has NO relation to that.
