Should "What" be banned....again! MODS, take a look.

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Should "What" be banned....again! MODS, take a look.

Well, "What" thinks that if we had a vote on these forums if he should of enbanned before or not he thinks we would of voted for him to stay. So this is where I step in and his BS stops and the facts talk. What do you vote? And mods, I think if this turns out that the majority of CF members think he should be banned, he should be banned, once again.

Let me remind everybody this is about his 4th time back on these forums after being banned previously numerous times.

Please do not vote if you do really honestly not remember him or were not a member of CF when he was around gettting banned all the time. I really want people that KNOW him from his posts on CF to respond.

You can't just ban him for coming back, look at newyorker...he's been banned a couple of times, but he doesn't cause trouble anymore, same with 99integra...but they aren't doing anything wrong...

Why don't we at least give him another chance, and if he actually does something against the rules, we can ban him...

En serio brudda, I'm not a big forum nuisance like I used to be (after like the 4th ban) so why not one more chance be given :2cents:

I'm not sure banning him would do anything other than cause him to keep comming back again! I personally cant ban members as it's an Admin/Supermod only function. So only UFF, Bav or Satty can do that. Also, even though his past actions warrented a ban, at the moment his actions seem to be genuine. In other words, at the moment there really is no need to ban him again. If we did, I strongly believe it would just antaganise him!

Also, I'm not sure the poll options are worded as they should be. I voted for 'he needs another 4th 5th or whatever chance' but to me, that sounds a bit like we dont care about the outcome. Maybe it's just me?

I just didnt know what time this was his time back (thasts why i put 4th 5th or whatever chance).

From my experience, people dont change.

"What" is just taking a different approach this time and buttering everyone up. He'll come out and be himself soon enough. Wouldn't that be nice if mods could "ban a name" permanently, like any name with the word "what" in it.

I think if he keeps getting banned, he'll eventually get the message. Afterall it now takes him a few months to come back after being banned once again. I just dont see why banned people are allowed back here, especially if every-time before (3 or 4 times) they have been banned for causing disturbances. I guess thew word "ban" around here means "take a hike for as long as you like, then come back to our open arms!".

I realize the people who have polled probably include "what" and other members who have been banned and came back, but we'll see how it ends up.

Its as easy as - 1) go to user CP, 2) click on buddy/ignore lists, 3) add his name to your ignore list. Problem solved. :wink2:

Buttering everyone up? That's not me. If I were "up to no good" I'd come at you with the chaos immediately. I'm not known for hiding my intentions.



I haven't been back because I've been REHABING...and completing my thesis M.S. program in Chemical Engineering...at LSU by the way...and managing property that me and my buddies purchased. That's right, I've been right there motherf*cker. If you're interested in testing my rehabbed body and its nuts, 'What' will be at REGGIES on Friday. In case you don't know where it is, go down Nicholson, turn right at Bob Petit, and it'll be right next to FREDS in Tigerland. Just yell out "COLETTI's A BITCH"! and I'll find you.

posted by  What?

The admin can ban certain names from being used if he wishes, as far as I'm aware. As for 'what'....just because he isn't being banned, doesn't maen he's not being watched....We make a point of watching members who come back under different usernames after being banned....If he gets ouit of hand, rest assured he'll be dealt with!:thumbs:

what a stupid f'n thread. why let everyone else whos been banned come back and single this guy out. let him stay:2cents:

If Bav bans What?, then he should ban me and Newyorker because thats unjust.

Dude...there have been a lot of members just as bad if not worse then What...

This thread is getting more and more pointless:2cents:

posted by  jedimario

How could it be any more pointless than it was on the first post. I don't think it's more pointless, this is just an extension of the pointlessness. Since you brought it up, you can be the official pointlessness pointer. After a short internship, you will become a professional pointlessness pointer and being as you're the forums only one to hold the position, you'll be the primary professional pointlessness pointer. Finally, since you're from South Carolina, you can be the Palmetto Primary Professional Pointlessness Pointer.

Any questions PPPPP?

I would just like to show everyone, "what" has not changed. This is a nice little PM I got from him, you know, he's been acting nice lately, keyword: acting. I dont know why anyone could not see through it, he was just buttering everyone up, including you, mods. "What" has had no divine intervention and will continue to contribute nothing useful to these forums other than insults calling everyone "bitches" and his little school boy attitude of "bitch slapping" people on the internet. With no further ado, here is the PM I received from "what" and as you will see, he hasn't changed one bit...



Hmm looks like What is still his OLD banned self. Isn't this what he WAS banned before? Calling people bitches all the time (creating threads about "Bitch slapping" and never contributing to the forums?

The entire point of this thread actually wasn't the poll or anything of that nature. I actually was just luring "what" to bring out his true self again, showing everyone he has not changed, or anything of that nature. So this basically proves my point in that "what" has not changed, he still is going to act like everytime before when he was banned, so why allow him to take away from these forums, mods?

posted by  thunderbird1100

I explained this in another thread, Im not saying we SHOULD let other previously banned members stay (people love to put words in my mouth). I'm singling out "what" simply because he is at the top of the food chain, and that's a good place to start. Especially since he has almost NEVER contributed anything useful to these forums.

posted by  thunderbird1100

Unfortunately, the idea of PM's is to have a private way of communicating with others, and I believe you as to what he said in his PM to you, but i'm almost certain worse has been said through PM in the past. All I can suggest is that you report any othe messages he sends you and we'll look into it further. I'll PM you shortelly to let you know how I'm thinking!

I dont support any previously banned members who return, if you were banned, you should stay banned, or there is no point in the "Ban" function on these boards. I understand some banned HAVE changed and HAVE contributed to the forums when coming back, but still, instead they should call it "temporary leave" not "banning" a member. IMO, and in many others, there should be better mods on these forums, you guys let too many previously banned members slide right by. Since when did banning only become a temporary thing?

I just dont get it, every other forum I've ever been on they have never had a problem with banned members coming back and BANNING them again, immediately. Instead, here banned members can come back an infinite amount of times and not really worry about getting banned again when they come back. Seems like it takes months to re-ban several previously banned members, and it is only because that banned member AGAIN is a disturbance to the forum, people DO NOT change.

Why dont you give me your LSU email then, perhaps?

Also, post exactly what classes you are taking, in other words the name of the course and the number.

posted by  thunderbird1100

Again when did I say that other previously banned member should stay? I never did, and I explained that I dont endorse other members staying i nanother thread. You AND adam both put words in my mouth.

posted by  thunderbird1100

Let me tell ya a little story as to why you're wrong about people not changing their ways. On another Forum I'm a Mod at, we have a chat room. Now a couple of years ago we had a really disruptive member, he would verbally abuse, throw insults etc etc, he was banned. and can back a changed man....Now he's a Forum Mod, too...and a very good one, who offers alot to the place!

As for banning.....I always though it was temporary?...you can get banned from driving, but that's only for a while!

posted by  Cliffy

I understand PMs in the past are worse, I was just using it to point out "what" has not changed, he will continue to not contribute to the forums.

posted by  thunderbird1100

My point is most people do not come back changed, and even if they do, I still think this should be a one time shot kind of thing, you screw up, you lose, sorry. And as I just pointed out, "What" hasnt changed.

I guess the word "banned" can be taken in different terms. But I always viewed it basically as the word "exiled", or permanent removal. You could also use prohibited, I could see that. Or prohibitated indefinatley.

It's a damn shame that at least some of my tax dollars are being wasted in the pursuit of attempting to educate someone of your obviously low intellect. You my little twinkie friend are the one trying to put words into my mouth. I NEVER SAID THAT YOU DON'T THINK OTHERS SHOULD CONTINUE TO BE BANNED. I did say;


And I also said;


Sorry, those are the facts whether they agree with your opinion or not. Not quite putting words in your mouth. More like letting you hang yourself with your own words, or lack of words. Try getting off your high horse and admit that you just don't have the support of the active membership on this forum for your quest to have Twhat? removed. And if you can't handle that, you have the option of removing yourself from the board. If you really wanted to get rid of a trouble maker, that would be the quickest route. Personally I'd like to see you both banned for life, but I would never have the audacity to request such an act. It's time for you to go back to basket weaving class Twinkie. Run along now.

I did have a positive contribution to the forum thunderbird. I've created many threads and had many informative posts. You don't remember them though, which is understandable. My previous username -What- was completely wiped, but some topics and post from my original name "What" remain. Here are a few of my positive contributions that you say don't exist.

These are only a few of the positive threads that I've started. A lot more than "NEVER"...huh? And wait a minute...you posted in some of those.

Stop trying to "lure" men, thunderbird.

posted by  What?

well I read through some and saw them all, in some of the threads you did start crap with members so I wouldn't call them positive. Another thing I noticed was your threads were mainly what car is better and what car is faster for debate. I liked the one about the members question seemed interesting we should do that again haha.

i think he should be repeatedly banned just so i can be entertained by every new iteration of "what" he comes up with...:wink2:

posted by  dodger65

Most of the "crap" I started was in response to "crap" from other members. They usually started with me.


This is a car forum so I figured car related topics would be ok. And most of my topics were about recently released cars are limits of car technology. What else is more appropriate for a car forum?

If you really think it is necessary then perhaps probation. I do hate the fact that many members who have been banned continue to reappear. This is stupid especially when they openly say they were banned.

People can change, I was put on probation within 2 days of joining CF; 2 years later I am still here. :thumbs:
