If you wish to discuss bans or warnings please do so via PM. To place a complaint against a moderator, send a PM to a super moderator. All Moderators are equal, any decision made by a moderator must be adhered to. If a moderator tells you something you do not like, do not go to another moderator looking for a different answer. If you are caught doing this you will be banned. The moderators work as a team and respect the decisions made by their peers and will help enforce them unless an administrator tells them differently.
If you have an issue with how the forum is run, then notify one of our administrator and we will look into the situation.

  • BKF new feature - post voting thumbs up/down

    So, now that we have our own little b***h site, I don't know if LAZ is reading, but for kicks I hit a "thumbs up" or someone on my post did, I don't know or care, but then I get a PM that tells me someone "liked" my post. I don't give a rodent's butt about that, and now I am ignoring PMs that may be of importance as I feel "bothered" and actually harassed by such trivial things.

    I'm not here for that. LAZ if you can, divert all this crap from me.

    It is going to confuse the newbies, and irritate those who have been and to date, are here. It is annoying me to death.

    Keep it simple. LAZ You are losing the concept of what works. Leave it alone. It worked before.

    Remember the "NEW Coca Cola"? 1985. It almost ruined the Coca-Cola company. They then brought back a facsimile of the original Coke.

    I'm telling you, and predicting you will regret your games, bells, whistles.

    'Hub (for now)
    If I knew it all, would I be here?? Hang in there = Retained attorney 8-06, Filed 12-28-07, Discharge 8-13-08, Finally CLOSED 11-3-09, 3-31-10 AP Dismissed, Informed by incompetent lawyer of CLOSED status, October 14, 2010.

    This is from the FAQ section of the forum...

    What if I don't want anyone to see my reputation?

    You can disable the display of your reputation by going to your User CP and selecting Edit Options. On this page you will find a check box labelled 'Show Your Reputation Level'. Un-checking this box will remove the display of your reputation and replace it with the Reputation Disabled icon. You can still give and receive reputation while your reputation display is disabled.
    Again I ask... WHERE Is this Option located?

    I'd rather just have everything turned off since it states its the USERS OPTION under FAQ. I dont care what anyone thinks of my posts - thats their opinion, good-bad-ugly-indifferent - it doesnt matter to me. I dont care if I have "friends" - like me, dont like me - doesnt bother me one way or the other. I'm here because I needed help, I needed to understand things, and along the way - help others that are new to the process as I am able to. As far as the "Friends" go - I wont classify who IS and who is NOT on a forum as I feel everyone learns from each other, therefore - we're all "friends".

    my .02 - of course, it would be helpful to get an answer to my question

            yes, indeed, i got a few pm's telling me by thread and post were "BAD"....lol...now, i'm not certain if "BAD" meant cool...like wow...that's like "BAD"...or if it means


            Synonyms: deficient, inferior, lousy, off, poor, punk, rotten, substandard, unacceptable, ungodly, unsatisfactory, wanting, wretched, wrong


            Related Words: defective, faulty, flawed; execrable, lesser, low-grade, mediocre, reprehensible, second-rate, unspeakable; bum, useless, valueless, worthless; inadequate, insufficient, lacking; astray; scurrilous, villainous


            well.....now THAT's BAD!
            Yes, the original Coke was a medicine invented in a Drug store in Atlanta. THAT is why the formula is a secret and the beverage is so popular. Now really, there is no coke in it anymore and once someone thought of putting sparkling water into it, it became a beverage.

            Now seriously, when you got PMed that you had a "bad" post, how did that make you feel? First you have to stop, answer the PM button, waste your time reading that your efforts seemingly failed (for that single person, could have helped the OP though) and makes you really feel like you want to post again doesn't it? Think about the havoc some Troll could inflict upon this board by clicking every down thumb on every post. Riots anyone? 'Hub
            If I knew it all, would I be here?? Hang in there = Retained attorney 8-06, Filed 12-28-07, Discharge 8-13-08, Finally CLOSED 11-3-09, 3-31-10 AP Dismissed, Informed by incompetent lawyer of CLOSED status, October 14, 2010.

              no HUB...you mean they took the cocaine out?? LOL!!! shoot!

              yes, what a waste of time and of course some troll is most likely responsible. and i have had a few as indicated by some of my postings.

              certainly now they have the freedom to just click away at the "thumbs" down icon. i understand we are ALL entitled to our own opinions...but be open about it and don't be sneaky...that's what i feel like it was...i couldn't be face to face this person.

              but seriously i gave it approx. 2 minutes of my "thought" time and moved on by it...since it was silly. funny how we react when someone says we did something "good" as opposed to when we have been naughty and are now perceived as "bad"...i think it's called "HUMAN NATURE"...??

              and ironically...or maybe NOT so....the "bad" ones came all in a role seconds apart......so most likely clicked by the same troll....

                  Yes, and each PM has to be answered separately to remove them from the queue. A Troll picking through all the posts could lock this board up and stop posting responses for a long time. Sooner or later, this will become tiring and people will just give it up. I don't think you have to even be registered to read and click here. 'Hub

                      OK, I helped you out and gave you one more bad rating. I wonder if you will get an award for the most 'bads' listed. Can you see on your machine "0 out of 1 didn't like your post?" If so, then how many people will feel humiliated about this? 'Hub

                        Yes we did but I honestly didnt mean it in a bad way "back then"..it was merely an observation from a professional standpoint, nothing more, nothing less. Its hard to tell monotone on a computer screen - but you certainly let me have it and know your thoughts on my view. You're entitled to that and I respected it then and now - just found it funny you thought I was "stalking" you - Noooope .

                        FWIW - my mom always said my mouth and outspokenness got me in trouble growing up - its just who I am. Guess that's why I got grounded so much eh?


                        'Hub - I didnt have to answer any PM - I just got a notification saying # such and such was "bad" - oddly enough, it was the exact thing Tobee and I are discussing now. How's THAT for irony?

                          Gee..thanks (I think..?) Yeah, got the notice..but again it only says the post # and if I click it..it pulls up the post you rated. Doesnt say WHO gave me a "bad" rating however, and no place to respond to you. Are you saying you got actual PM's for your "baddies"? How odd
