"Reason: Stop trolling please"

Huh? It started ok. People were being civil in that poll.
Maybe I missed something. Curse this thing called "sleep"......

I dunno about you guys...

I think its funny.

Mets is such a 'colourful' character - when I hear
he is banned, to me it means he is ALIVE and KICKING ! :punk

Some things never change round here. It seem the secret competition of who can get banned the most is still running. :stare:

Nothing like PF1 humour after a hard day's work. :thumbs:

Mets is a champion for making me smile and laugh but even without him around PF1 comes through in fine form.

Chill closed the thread, but I'm not sure who "banged the hammer".

If Metla goes too long without a ban,I suspect he has to have a check-up. It has been a very long time since the last one. Let us hope it is a short ban and he comes out of his corner fully refreshed.

He's scheduled to be back within the next 24 hours, definitely miss him... personally I love his sense of humor, but I know others may not :p

Did Jen or Chill bang the hammer?It wasn't me. This will probably make the person who reported Metla to still think I ought to resign as Moderator as he suggested in his reported post message. I guess the fact I was away all day doesn't count. :rolleyes:

BTW, those reported post messages go out to ALL Moderators/Admins so there is no need to address them personally to me. :thumbs:

You+Chill?

On the mod subject, me would like to be a mod when I finish high school and less busy:p

Two points here Blam,
1,The poll is tongue in cheek,
2,you are invited as a mod.

Indeed, whilst we are in musical mood...Old King Tut (http://www.archive.org/download/BillyJonesErnestHare/BillyJonesErnestHare-OldKingTut.mp3).....Jones and Hare in1923, a year after Tut's tomb was discovered, they didn't hang around composing in those days..

Now, How do threads like this help me learn my lesson?:eek:

Anyway, I thought my thread was a fine idea, Getting banned for it took me by complete surprise.:rolleyes:

As much as I have no problem offending the...uh...person who shall not be named for fear he demand a moderator steps down from their role:rolleyes::rolleyes:, I'm still surprised it upset his feelings.

Meh, After making my poll and a few posts I saw him come online, When he didn't contribute to the thread I got nosy and clicked on his user name, Under activity it said "User reporting post".

then I was banned for trolling other users.....

Using my amazing powers of deduction I figure its pretty obvious.:clap:clap:clap

Though I would love to know who it was who suggested Jen should step down. She does such a good job, with such flair and beauty too :p

I've closed this thread as it was turning into a "let's pick on someone".

Everyone is entitled to their opinions and people should feel free to report someone if they wish. The Mods make the ultimate choice on whether any action is appropriate from that reported post.
