     I can't believe what I started.  I had to chuckle this evening when I came to this site for the first time in a good while.  My initial post was made because every time I have looked to open this site over a fairly long period of time I type in Lister Engine Forum and the first thing that pops up is "HELP I'VE BEEN BANNED FROM THE LISTER ENGINE FORUM!)  Dated 2008.  That is what started this thread.  I would hate to think what would happen if I gulped a bottle of tequila and did a couple of bong hits before posting.  Seriously though, My Listeroid, that I have had for about 10 years and use for backup power is about to go to pasture and a Changfa I have had for some time is going in.  I truly enjoy the engines and will check in from time to time to find out any new tricks.  I guess my mistake was  calling the pleading of the desperate soul a post.  Cheers.  PS-- I have re-read as counseled, multiple times I hope it is as innocuous  as it is meant to be.
     As I see the price at the pumps creeping up I am guessing that interest in these engines will once again peak.

To tell you straight, I think your little sook on the microgen forum was pissweak.  You'd already admitted you did the wrong thing then went on to blame others for the problems you caused yourself.  That's pathetic in my book and you owe Ade in particularly an apology. Frankly, you sound like a self centred whinger to me who want to put the blame on others for the problems YOU bring upon yourself.

There, now you do have reason to say you were attacked. Make sure when you have a cry about it to anyone else you tell them the WHOLE reason why and not just your own one sided view. Oh, and make sure you credit the RIGHT person for " attacking " you this time Cupcake.

If you were banned, you must be now posting under another account.
What was your account username previously? I'm sure that would be very insightful.

I'm not sure of this forums Finer rules but most forums I have been on say if you are banned you are not permitted to join under a different user name. That makes me wonder if you should be here at all but let us know who you were previously so we can see what might have caused the problem.

Rather gentle tone in that post Glort!

Wow, takes a lot to wind Glort up like that, I`ve been doing it for ages and never got a response like that. Who is this guy and why does he cause such anxt?

That said the reply was measured but straight to the point. No need for BS here. :laugh:

You never would either because you have earned my great respect and never put shit on people they did not deserve or blamed other for things you are responsible for. There is a big Difference between having a Dig at someone in fun or they well deserve than telling lies and blaming them for things you and lying about them. We all make mistakes but that's a very different thing to then going and telling others lies and casting dispersion's on people whom have done no wrong at all.

I think it's pretty clear to all of us why this entitled sook would have been banned and for good reason.  Be interested to see if he does tell us who he was when he was banned but I'd put significant money on the bet he won't.

My tone was very gentle in comparison to what I WOULD say to the guy in person. I was very Subtle in pointing out what he had done on the Microgen site but clearly, he didn't get the message or take the hint. The drawback of forums is that you can't look people in the eye when you talk to them which is something I very much prefer to do.   Unfortunately forum decorum requires that my responses are subdued in comparison to what I would say in real life.

Just ask the guy that near took out the front of my car this morning when he did a lane change without looking and then really proved he was just stupid rather than made a mistake by stopping his and getting out his car to engage in discourse with me on the matter.  Fortunately my articulated communication with my displeasure of his actions and the possible and highly probably outcomes if he did not resume speedy progress of his vehicle along the carriageway, soon had the blockage of the traffic flow corrected promptly.

Have any of you ever typed up a post, then better judgement caused you to erased it? Well I have typed this one up 5 times and now I am going to post it, better judgement or not.


I think it is time for some to consider just what benefit is to this site or the engine community for us to keep  this  post up top front and center  by continually adding to it??? (such as I am doing right now and is absolutely my last post on this absurd thread)
The very first thing a person sees who comes to this site looking for Listeroid engine information is page after page of off topic rants and  B.S.      Mr moderator  may we get at least get a lock  on this post so it can fall off the bottom of page 1  or send it to the off topic forum or something? Not for my personal benefit,but for the good of the site?

I feel all better now :)

I think technically this thread should be under "General Discussions".  Perhaps we could create another category labelled "Alternative Threads" or "Just Plain BS!"

There's obviously growing sentiment that this thread should be locked. Well... who am I to argue? It shall be done.

Personally, I think the forum needs a bit of re-organisation... but that's not for me to do without agreement from the owner and other admins... but for the meantime, I guess we just carry on as normal.

If anyone has a burning desire to add something more to this thread, let me know by PM.
Cheers!
Ade.
