    Default Want to know more abour Denmark.

    I for one am glad that Gordon is back. For the past 9 years, I've gotten fascinated with his many, many, many many, posts on the benefits of living in a socialist paradise with a top income tax rate of 60% and a value added rate of 25%. What could be nicer?

    So, I hope to hear more about Denmark. Really, I do.

    Welcome back, Gordon.

    I was also banned for 30 day when my old friend Thermite was. He and I deserved it as we got to personal. I now am glad it happened, not only re-set my use. I have cut way back of reading and helping on PM. I discovered Facebook and it has all sorts of machining forums and I started my own company and personal forum that I can control the format. I just signed up to Instagram and I have my own paid for company forum on another help site that is geared more for hobbyists. I now am back and to be honest glad I got banned, it opened my horizons. I missed PM though as I have many friends on here and I missed them. Also as recommended by Charles Blair, I use the ignore function more now. It was a learning experience being banned and I hope Gordon you have learned from it too. I also never knew you were gone as I learned long ago not to read your posts. Welcome back

    no one should ever be banned except in the most extreme cases, and I do mean extreme, such that if I gave an example I should be subject to being banned for posting it.

    strong opinions make for spirited debate and that is good, Gordon by that metric is practically a patron saint.

    name calling? who cares? call me anything you like.
    foul language? again, who cares?

    on a forum where you can't see expressions or hear the tone I see these things as useful tools to get the point across.

    welcome back GBC...and bugger off too, you SOB!

    Welcome back, Gordon.
    Recall they let him out, he came to Texas (of all places)
    Caused a car accident, got excellent (his words) care and "didn't get shot".

    And then back on home turf , continues the hatred towards all things America.

    Recall good people, that Google pays the bills around here, there is NO fee's
    to participate.

    It has been said in the past, keep it civil, for visitors, like maybe a school
    teacher, and their shop class ?

    For our new mod to exclaim "just ignore El Gordo" is flat out wrong.

    Visitors will be driven away, and hence advertising revenue "AKA Google hits"
    will go down.

    Welcome back Gordon. I'm glad you are back

    QT: If Spinit was a “mere” member...

    Somebody has to be Monitor or the site would fail. Spinit took the job..
    I got banned a time back for making a Trump joke and it was not Spinet who gave me the boot...with date of return "Never."

    I think what most people found objectionable to some of your posts was you pointed out some of the United States deficiencies. Some people don't do criticism so well.

    As I pointed out in another thread,I could see this coming. Spinit isn't thick skinned enough to be able to be an impartial moderator. Being able to dispose of your enemies reminds him of his hero.
    I think what most people find objectionable, and tiresome both on this forum and in discourse in general today, is injecting politics, bias and anti-USA rhetoric in completely unrelated technical or other discussions. I don't read the manufacturing forum, and skip most every post by GC, but roll my eyes each time I see one in a technical question, because one may be assured that at least 75% of the time it was trolled for personal and political rhetoric. These folks need to go on over to one of the infinite political "news and information" sites where people sit around and yell at each other anonymously on the internet.

And the part about him also deleting every post that one has ever made is complete BS.
    Spinit made around 17,000 of my posts "disappear" so those allegedly "hate America" ones are probably also gone. I've often asked to see one so I could see what it is I'm being blamed for having written but it's never happened so I still don't know.

    If anyone can find an "anti USA" post written by me I'd really like to see it. Then, and only then, will I know what I'm being accused of. I don't mean a partial quote from one. I'd need to see the entire post.

    Here's another Gordon thread making this a better place.

    imo you should have thought out your return a little more. Oh well, nice while it lasted.

    That's a huge amount of clicky clicking. He'll be suing Don next for RSI

    No I said "and someone said Trump drives a Ford".

    Likely the moderator did not like me picking on Fords.

    Typical response, laugh it off, and besmirch me.

    I give him 4 years, from what I have seen, although some go faster.

    Or maybe it's PML.

    Never work. While Spinit is equally qualified, I don't think he'd be the required yes man
