View Full Version : Suggestion: Repeal my ban from OT


QQQ

Errm... So a while back I got the permabannhamer from OT as well as a two-week complete ban from CGN for a certain post that I made in that section of the forum. I ask for a review, and hopefully reversal of, the permaban from Off-Topic on the following bases:

1) I recognize that the statement was inappropriate, and apologize to anybody who saw and was offended by it.
2) It's been a couple of months since the ban with no bad behavior (at least on this forum :D)
3) I have contributed to other threads in positive ways both in OT and outside of OT, both before and since the ban (although not in OT since the ban).

I posted this in a public section of the forum because I don't know which mod or admin carried out the ban and because the post I was banned for was public, so it's only appropriate that the apology was made public as well.

Thanks.

QQQ and myself have had our fair share of disagreements, but i think he has attoned for what happened. Let im back in OT, his insight, even though it occasionally went against the general opinon, was thoughtful and refreshing.
Just my 2 cents

At least in those, the applicant says that they won't do it again. ;)

Can you please repeat what you said that got you banned so that we may decide whether your digression can be forgiven? :biggrinjester:

It isn't worth it. Stay out of OTF, it only serves to draw some of us in to the dark side....

Besides, I'm sure OTF wasn't the reason you joined here anyway....the board would be better off with out it.

Good Luck..I'm banned from Off-Topic too...I've appealed to the offended party and Cal Guns' resident GOD to no avail.

Cal Guns is not a 1A forum.

and...Forgiveness is not a trait common here...

"Forgiveness and letting go can lead you down the path of healing and peace."

Aristotle said, "The path to happiness is forgiveness of everyone and gratitude for everything."

I agree to a certain extent. You really find out whos here for attention and whos here for the gun talk once they get banned from OT. Op you're not missing out on much, at least being able to look is good enough. Cool stuff pop out once in a while.

I post in the OT sometimes and to be honest that's not the reason I visit Calguns. Interesting and informative posts pop up from time to time on the OT but the attention whores who make a thread for any little thing they do get really ****ing annoying. They should make a ****ing twitter account and get some fans.:rolleyes:.

I am with the OP here as well. Because so many threads are moved to or are a dupe from OT, I miss out alot on stuff.

When banned from OT you cant even go in there and read without posting?:confused:

Nope. Which means everytime you click on the links to see them it says HAHA NO YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED!!!! but in a general not mean form.

If it wasn't for the non-gun forums on this board, this would be a very slow place. That pretty much goes for most types of boards, that's why many if not most have OT forums.

The OT forum is the scourge of Calguns. Most of the time I use a new post search that excludes it. However, once in a while I check out the dark side for entertainment value.:D

I like the OT, but I haven't gotten trouble there. Only in the LEO forum have I been warned.

No offense intended here QQQ - I know even if you don't go to the party it's still nice to be invited - but why would you want to be where for whatever reason your not wanted or tempt fate of being banned from the site all together if you mess up again ? I mean last I checked perma ban is a perma ban thats why its called that right ?!? :nuts:

Aren't you just going tick off the mods that banned your butt even more in doing so ? I mean for lack of a better term its like being a convicted felon and trying to buy a firearm over and over again and wondering why you keep getting in deeper trouble for it :banghead:

Thanks for the support and bumps, comrades.

And yes, I did chuckle at the suggestion to move this thread to OT, where I wouldn't be able to follow it anymore. Please don't.Can you please repeat what you said that got you banned so that we may decide whether your digression can be forgiven? :biggrinjester:I told the other party to have a wonderful day and that I wished him the best in all of his future endeavors. Really.At least in those, the applicant says that they won't do it again. ;)I think that's kind of implicit in an apology.

As of right now, I can only look at OT by signing out and viewing the forum as a non-member. As that involves the tremendous effort of clicking "log out", I don't really do that, so none of OHOD's silver-related threads are read anymore by this poor soul.No offense intended here QQQNone taken - I know even if you don't go to the party it's still nice to be invited - but why would you want to be where for whatever reason your not wanted or tempt fate of being banned from the site all together if you mess up again ?

Besides, without OT, that stuff would just move to other forums.

If you just want to read OT, open up mobile CG without signing in. You can have both open at the same time. You could always PM someone if you had an important point to make about a thread or post. It's too bad people take stuff like a difference of opinion so personally online. That said, it's a private site so the admin/mods are free to do what they want to.

just use another browser and don't log-in. sure you can post but at least you can read.

or just sign up with a new account. not like the mods check every new member's IP address with members already here.

No. Mods get butthurt when you make a second account just for OT. Ask me how I know :D

eh, just don't post like your original persona then it would be very hard to find out.

i know a few on here that have a half dozen alternate names on here, some they use/post others just for lurking. they haven't had the names banned yet. :43:

Solution: Research "proxy servers". Locate proxy servers online. Create new disposable email account. Configure your browser to surf through your proxy server. Apply for a new Calguns account using your new email address. Boom, you're back in. Now start over again, only this time as a kinder, gentler soul. Your mouth is your own worst enemy.

There is absolutely no way for an Admin to beat or defeat the method I just described. But really it's a lot easier to just refrain from being a penile unit. :D

Isn't that the quickest way to get perma-banned from all of CGF? And I thought they DO check IP addresses... at least other sites do....

yup, it is possible to avoid techical detection. But most of those guys are detected as soon as they "open their mouth and post"

But really it's a lot easier to just refrain from being a penile unit. :Dyup, post with a decent level of courtesy and you don't have to worry about getting banned. 16k posts without even a warning.
