My God! Can't old posts go away!
« on: May 09, 2018, 04:18:34 AM »
     My God, Can"t old posts ever go away?
I come to these sites from time to time and the same shit is on the screen.  Such as "BANNED FROM LISTER ENGINE FORUM"!!!!  Isn't there any one who can make this shit disappear?  I sometimes make stupid posts and they also never go away.  In this enlightened age I can't believe this cant be handled.

If that's all you have to whinge about, why not log onto the Samaritan site, I'm sure they'll treat your post with post with the reverence you so clearly think it deserves.

Yes.

Me.

If you'd like to explain in a little more detail, preferably a little more comprehensively and a little less emotionally, perhaps I can address your issue?

Or I could just ban you.

Your call.
Cheers!

Thats the problem with the internet and such. All the dumb crap you put on there tends to stick around, only to bite you in the arse many years later. Still trying to teach my kids that. Maybe posting that naked selfie isnt a good idea after all.....

My question is a simple one, have you rehabilitated yourself? If you have and you wish to add something useful or learn something from those on the forum you are welcome. If not, then it is back to the naughty step for you.
Forgive and move on, unresolved feuds do more harm than good. AdeV can always ban you later.

I have been Banned from plenty of forums.  Be surprised if I don't get the shaft from the Micro Cogen site  in short order.

I have butted heads with a lot of people but I can't say I ever remember not standing behind everything I have ever said.
In truth, when I have gone back and read what I said sometimes years later, I'm more adamant about it than what I was at the time.

I guess the thing is to think about what you say and make sure you have no regrets later.  Other thing is not to say anything online that you wouldn't say to someones face. I'm the opposite of that, I have to severely curb what I say online to what I would tell people online.

Not that hard to think before you type.  Most blokes are not exactly doing 100 words per minute typing speed so there is a lot more opportunity to think than when just shooting off your mouth.

The trick is to have the honor of being banned for posting the truth, the absolute truth, presented properly, without agenda or argument, bias, malice or ill intention. Now that's a righteous ban!

No problem with that with me and the other site.  Little dictator there has got it bad for me. My ideas don't agree with his so I'm well in his sights.
No question why that site has fallen so short of it's true potential which is a shame but at the same time, we are privileged to discuss anything we want here and do with a lot of the subject matter covered by the other site.

If I suddenly appear with a " Banned" label under my username here, You'll know what happened.

On a renewable greenwashed site, I was shitcanned for posting links to creditable organizations that undermined the parroted fantasy beliefs and fairy tales they wanted to push.
There are plenty of people here that are green motivated but for the most part, are honest in their outlooks and admit limitations where they exist.
 This other lot were just drinking WAAAY too much Koolaide. 

Really shits me when there is a mentality that anything alternative means it has to be  approved as " Green" . That was one thing that Did upset the dreamers on that forum, when I asked just that, " Where it is written or a rule that any idea for making ones own energy or doing anything different to the norm with heating, cooling etc has to be approved as being green?"

They sure didn't like that!

I like to be self sufficient and come up with new ways of achieving that.  IF it does not fit with someone elses Ideals, they can do as they please but unfortunately some won't give others the same courtesy.

After hurricane Erma, my twin listeroid 20/2 was chugging away, a slight haze of diesel exhaust when under heavy load. Probably not all that green, but certainly an excellent backup to grid power during emergencies. Furthermore, I'm not at all sure I should be required (or even pressured) to be green during a bona-fide emergency. The good news is that I burned up a few gallons of ancient olive oil too. (rather than dump the olive oil in the Everglades... ) [sarc]

And I would bet my backside, the most hysterical, greenwashed, never satisfied, Environmental loudmouth would plug into your " Dirty" power in a heart beat if they could keep the lights on at night and the Tofu cold in the fridge when their power was out.

I'm getting so I can't stop laughing about some of the contributions.  Whether the post sounds like Archie Bunker or Meathead.  A little growth would be so refreshing.

I'd like to nominate:
