    Oh JHC! This is a PUBLIC forum, NOT your neighborhood bar. It has nothing to do with anyones age and EVERYTHING to do with COMMON SENSE!

    You obviously didn't use any, so it got taught to you with a 7 day ban. Don't like it? Feel free to leave & don't let the door hit you on the way OUT!

    Hey, Huxley,,, I read your post's regarding Ben's small GTG and gear pickup. Ben was nice enough to allow us to use his home as a meeting point to pick up gear that I had picked up for another polkie,Tom and Lightman were bringing my pair of SDA's from Raleigh. You had not arrived by the time I left,and when I read your post,I must say that I don't think that Ben,or any of us for that matter,want to have mini fest's portrayed/associated with alcohol, guns and threats/implications of physical violence.What you described and I what I experienced were two very different situations. It's fine to have a good time,drink to brewskies,and horse around. I try to live by the motto, that what happens at ______(fill in the blank) stays there.Anyway,welcome to Club Polk, get your learn on,make some friends,, and pick up on the knowlwdge and experience that abounds here. If you do,you'll end up with a very good rig,if thats what you are looking for,I know I am.Chill out,and have some fun.:)

    Have you considered accepting "personal responsibility?" It's like being pissed off because you got a speeding ticket.

    You screwed up, and got booted for a week--move on with your life. People who talk **** right out of the gate, tend to have some unwelcomed attention--both in everyday life and internet forums.

They act like the noobs have entered some sort of territorial pissing ground. i mean whats up with that? Reminds me of military school. me and my classmates got hazed when we were freshmen. our senior year, my friends hazed all of the new kids, because it was a tradition. i never participated because i remember how bad i hated it when i was in their shoes. whats up with people now days?
    Wow you are really a valued member of this club and I can understand your outrage. I've really learned a lot from you and look forward to more of your wisdom. Is there anyway to get banned for 10 days for using bad language? I'm sure you'll be able to help me with this dilemma.

    By the way you sure know how to show class by welcoming yourself back from a banning.;) I really like your lesson on how to win the friendship of "insecure older people." I'll have to remember that when the "personal responsibility" class you are giving soon takes shape.

    I bow down to thee Oh classy guy!

    I don't know, I saw some of that guys posts, and I'm pretty sure the reason he got jumped on and banned wasn't because he was a noob (or a lot of us would be banned). It looked to me like he got banned for shooting off his mouth, having no common sense, acting way too chummy with people he didn't really know, and just generally being a weirdo. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong- but you don't have to be a guru to get down on that kind of behavior...

    I do not endorse or condone that Aldous behaviour. What I don't understand is why another n00b is jumping all over him. Did this guy do something special or does he have a special right to come to the forum and think that he is better than other noobs just because he has been here for a couple of months and did not get banned? Please explain.
    I was reading the 1st page of this thread and the nooshnjohn was all over the Aldous guy.

    Like I said- I may be wrong about why he got banned, but the point I was trying to make was that level of 'noobness' has nothing to do with it- so it's not about one noob pounding on another or anything. That Aldous guy was clearly acting in a way that just rubbed members the wrong way. It was his behavior, not the fact that he was a noob that did it, so I don't think new members have any less right to comment on it than anyone else does.
