What I attempted to argue was that instances of incivility on Bubba's part, in my opinion, are being punished more severely than instances of incivility on the part of others.
First, "IF"? Thanks for telling me how the board should be run, and that only I am able to make this decision. Let me make you aware of the fact that there is another admin of this board, although not the owner, she has nearly all of the authority as I do - that authority should be respected. We also have close to 20 other mods now... all of which are now involved in a private forum for mods/admins where forum issues are discussed... their input is vital to how the board is run.

I see you've been a member of this forum since early 2001, in which case you may also know that Bubba was the admin of the board for a very long time - he out of anyone else, knows what is NOT acceptable. Bubba has a vibrant history over the past year, more so than almost anyone else in FYM... this isnt a big secret.

Awww, A. Bubba. I was wondering who we were talking about.

You know, even though A Bubba never once agreed with me on anything (that I recall), I learned a lot of religion from his posts. He may have made more than his share of personal attacks (I received a few myself), but I am willing to accept that form of bashing if we can still have an educated, mindful voice in the forum.

That's not to say that I don't give Elvis the benefit of the doubt. AS mentioned earlier in this forum, he knows more about this than anyone else. More power to you, Elvis.

My vote goes to the undecided column. I'll miss A. Bubba, but Elvis is in charge and I know he wouldn't terminate someone's membership for frivilous reasons.

I have had some rough debates with BUBBA myself. BUBBA and I had a thread where it was the two of us hashing it out past 100 posts. Despite the fact that it got a bit rough sometimes, I really enjoyed debating with him on the issue's, I think he means well. I'm very disappointed that he has been banned from the forum and wonder why others have not been banned, if what he did was so out of line. BUBBA contributed far more to this place than the number of times he was a bit rough. My main point is that having him banned is a NET loss to this place, and I have questions about whether judgment and justice is being applied equally or selectively. I don't have all the info and havn't seen every post, this is just my opinion from what I have seen, and a person who has been involved in intense long debates with Bubba in the past. I hope that he is admitted back to the forum sometime in the future.

losing anyone from fym is going to change the balance previously held. elvis made the call, and what elvis says here goes whether you think it's judgement or justice.

I've been a member of this forum for over 2 years now(first as STING then STING2, somehow one day they lost my STING account) and am well aware of who Elvis is and his authority. I was just offering an opinion and hope it did not offend anyone.

*Danospano.. In general.. never give a person in power the benefit of the doubt...

*Isn't it a sacred rule in any business, organization, or hell.. even one of those scandalously propagandish Non Profit Shitholes, to protect the existing capital.

*So the challenge is to groom another Bubba eh?... I've seen promise in LeggyLatina.. Gentlemen, the potential is there.. Oh yes it is there.

*Z. Edge.. You're a Lovable and Oh So Cute Asshole...

*Can I impose a restriction for no Pre-Pubescent Idealistic Teenage Girls to become Mods?

*Oh, by the way.. Thanks Elvis for making me the new mod of Free Your Mind.

You forgot to note all the comments in the past that earned you your special title:

"I'm a chauvinist leprechaun"

A mod, you will never be, a chauvinist leprechaun, you are.

Enjoy your Lucky Charms

On second thought, you're just an asshole.
Keep switching ISPs... I'm gonna make posting here a bitch as long as you show such a lack of respect for the mods, women, and others here.

Is this the type of example we should follow for Free Your Mind?

I'm wondering whatever happened to "leadership by example"?

or is it:

"Do as I say, not as I DO"?

z edge,

I believe I had emailed you privately yesterday, and you neglected to reply. If you wish to question me and attack me personally, in public, instead of continuing our private dialogue, I'd urge you to rethink your campaign.

I am not your roll model, I am not your leader, and since when do you follow the example of any admin/mod of Feedback, let alone FYM? Besides, if I were to follow the example of G.W.B. of bombing and secretly invading those countries that even stir the pot (I'm not making a statement whether I agree or disagree politically), then my quick and decisive action, 0 tolerance, should be in-line with your own true roll model and leader.

I'll warn you now, I have no patience to carry on a FYM style debate, nor will I let you use my 'scolding' of someone (lemonite) that has abused this forum, and its members, as any example to prove or justify your own good or behavior.

My point was, and I believe I made it clear, that lemonite crossed the line one to many times, to the point that I would cross the line. I will not tolerate such behavior and abuse.

Something, you need to realize, and realize fast... this forum is not an insitutional govt based on the laws of the United States, or any other nation or entity. It is run and administrated purely on the choices, discussions, and patience, of myself, and any admin/mod of the site.

Again, would urge you not to attempt/continue any such campaign involving me - you may just try the patience of the wrong person. I don't have time for your BS.

Joel
