A sad day on PF1 Chat. We lost a member almost immediately. And their alter-ego FLOTUS died still-born.

A moments silence please to remember those who went before us. :rolleyes:

I have no problem with the mods weeding out the cr@p from the forums, bringing over the ban list form the old forum might not have been such a bad idea, but people can change. Then again alot stay the same and just try to cause trouble. The sooner people like that are gone the better.

Yeah, I don't think we need any of these "Bring back [insert name here] threads ... they got banned - end of story.

Very thoughtful Winston,but if this fellow who is questioning your name is anything to go by,I think Hang D and Q would be in order. :rolleyes:

Somebody called Whetu started a poll about Overc**kers NZ(their spelling, not mine). Thread got locked and deleted and whetu was banned.
Edit: Yay for editing.

it was stupid bloody thing of POTUS to post a big eye catching thread saying he is unbanned and then said he was carrying on with his **** stirring. Thats just saying, hey, you forgot to ban me - go on do it do it do it

Too bad. Oh well, nobody liked that guy anyway.

Don't think it was actually whetu off OCNZ, it looked like an alias.

The real Winston001 is probably not going to be hugely amused with the apparent hijack.

POTUS' handywork by the look of it, well according to the sticky at the top.

The plot thickens, was it really Potus, or was it someone else?? Someone savy enough to make sure their IP couldn't be traced, check out Bruce's Potus (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?t=52306) thread.

It was probably too much to hope that it wouldn't happen, but now we're all going to be looking sideways at posts that are a bit out of character :confused: :mad:

Doesn't apear to be the style of the original person posting as Potus on the old forum, As much as i dislike the original it/he/she/she-he didn't resort to mindless...uh...the word required is too strong,i'll just let the comment hang....

Why do people write viruses? Spray grafitti on walls? Stick fireworks in your letter box? There are those who know how to get on with life and then there are those who are stuck in a sad, bitter little world in which they are the star of a soap opera no one else is watching ....

I'm inclined to think we have a bogus POTUS. The tone of its very shortlived post was quite different to previous postings. Just some joker doing a windup but apparantly stealing other usernames as well.http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/images/smilies/mad.gif


And Alpha - I've stuck with my slightly cumbersome name cos I use it on other forums. The 001 was added some time ago when I tried to register for the New York Times only to find my name was already in use, even with 01. Weird huh?

So its just easier to be consistant than to change from forum to forum (in case my login gets lost)

By the way,is there a spell-check here?

That is, of course, a possibility. But POTUS - or at least someone claiming to be POTUS - also conducted an abusive email campaign against some users that PressF1 posters didn't see back when the old forum was running, so from my point of view the behaviour is not out of keeping with the previous personality. Whoever this particular idiot is, I don't think anyone should make excuses for them or tolerate their activities. If they behaved like this using voice over a phone they'd be subject to a Telecom and Police complaint.

can you just ban all user names with the name potus , flotus , notus etc

FLOTUS
17-12-2004, 02:45 PM
I am FLOTUS. I am not and have never been POTUS. I do know POTUS and can attest that POTUS has not attempted to log on to this new forum with that user name. Nor have they launched any attacks on this new forum. Whoever did those things is not the POTUS from the old forum.

Some of you will choose not to believe this, that's your problem, not mine.
