    That is depressingly accurate.

    Sometimes working on the ranch I step in stuff. I would rather not but sometimes it happens. If the ban was unwarranted then the one that did the banning needs to avoid stepping in stuff again. If Gordon stepped in stuff and the ban was warranted, then posting the reason will help all of us to avoid it.

    As you know, this was my only complaint with you.

    Maybe Spinit can reverse things but I'm not an optimist with that. He also told Don my ban was only for 2 weeks. Spinit told me "forever".
    The fact that you had 17,000 posts deleted and are still a platinum member should tell you something. Maybe going forward you don't need to be so quick with the reply button.


    And welcome back

    "We"? Probably most are but not all.

    I served a 5 year apprenticeship, worked machines for almost 3 years after that then got a job as manager. I am in fact an engineer. Apart from starting my own shop 25 years ago and running and setting up the machines I've now people who do the machining. All I do is invent and sell and give advice especially re thread issues. That can almost always be done in front of my computer. OK I do visit shops and companies regularly.

    I'm no longer a platinum member but thanks for the "welcome back".

    I did give fair warning so if some think constantly posting in this particular thread will shut me up they're in for a disappointment.

    What I have done, and it might help, is I've put the ones I consider worst on "ignore" for the time being. What I can't read can't offend Surely some of you must have better things to do than tell me how much I annoy you.

    It's apparently a lost cause but if someone can post a complete post by me that is anti American I'd really like to read it as I don't believe I have. I have read some posts that could be considered anti American but they've not been written by me.

    While I'm at it. I've no idea who "Mrs. Clarke" is but "its" never written a single post and only gives "likes" to

    Ox's thread run 2 or 3 days, then a bit of time passed, this thread has been up 2 or 3 days, apparently the mod is choosing to not comment, I guess its possible he hasn't crossed paths with either post but if he's checking the board occasionally like I'd figure a mod would do then to me that seems unlikely.

    We or at least I come here to shoot the shit with like minded people on a common interest, most times we're trying to sort somebody's problem. If the information on the other boards of this site has been compromised because of Gordon's posts being deleted then somebody needs to fix it if possible.

    lets just all agree to be real cool and not get banned. I don't want this to turn into the machinist groups on Facebook. Just trolls and memes. Yes its funny at times but there is hardly any good information there. This forum could be an amazing tool if we use it as intended.

    Weldon took his ball and went home. Which is a shame, because I enjoyed his trolling, he had a very sharp sense of humor. He was also a very skilled machinist. I'd like to contact him at some point, if anyone has his contact info and wouldn't mind forwarding it to me.

    I don't want this to turn into the machinist groups on Facebook. Just trolls and memes. Yes its funny at times but there is hardly any good information there.
    The machinist group serves its purpose to keep that kind of stuff off real boards like this one. It's a good place to goof off in a shop-like environment. It's over 116K members, with more trolling and goofing off than here... I help moderate it, and I delete less stuff in a month than Spinit has since he became mod of one forum here.
