If you can let go of the past and just move forward Shocky then you would never be banned.

make up your mind, jon. either retire or don't retire.

stop retiring and saying you will leave the site to be run by others only to keep coming back and laying down the law and reversing their decisions.

stop saying you are done with the scene and then coming back to snipe pacdude, myself, john, kinsey, pete and others when you're drunk or whatever it is you get sometimes.

figure out what it is that you want from the VP scene and stick to it for once. if that means steve and shiva take over the site hosting then let them do it. everyone will benefit.

thank you, good night and god bless.

Please remove my account. I want nothing more to do with this site.

Accounts will never be removed via request or otherwise, as this corrupts the database/history of the site.

The only exception is the accounts of single post spambots.

If any user wishes nothing more to do with this site then that is something easy to do, do not post/pm/email and set your own account not to recieve email/PM/post notifications.

Nic, Jon is our most generous and human host, I will always abide by his final say on such matters, he is a mate and conifident, we talk such matters through this decision was not of my choosing though I am in final agreement with it.

Waking up, and finding myself banned this morning, after giving the promise I was asked for, I'll be happy to answer that Nic.

The real question is why, Why are you jerks? Not how. I'll answer the how, if you take the why.

You come to Jon's site, and tell a member of his that you will not stand in the way if that member takes it up wirh AJ and AJ takes the ban away then you do stand in the way and reverse it, and give as the reason that you said that on Jon's site, not yours, so it don't matter if you keep your word. That is enough, but that's just a drop in the bucket. Jerk.

Mind stating where and when exactly you made that promise and why you are now breaking it Shockman?

You have 1 post to explain, otherwise this alias along with all others shall be banned for the next 4 weeks.

i'm sure you already know this, shockman, but the only time i'm interested in your comment is when i specifically address you.

So if I start spamming the site with requests that my account be removed, and make a total pain of myself like Shockman, will you remove my account? To refuse to remove my account shows just how much of a loser JPH really is.

No we will not remove your account stop being so obtuse it does you no service John.

You may get banned for a week or so, that's about it. As for losers well that's down to each individual.

While I don't agree with Jon's decision on this particular subject (making 4 weeks a maximum ban regardless of the offense)*, it's his site and his choice.

* Not concerning anyone in particular, just the blanket decision itself.

I agree with Kinsey and I believe it's what prompted John's reaction for self-removal.

While I am a large advocate of forgiveness, it seems clear to me that Shockman could care less about any rules for this site or any site for that matter, but I do wonder how far he has to push before even this site smacks him with the ban stick.

A one week ban threatened for asking that my account be removed? That alone shows how messed up this site has become.

i don't think steve was threatening you, john, just giving a 'compare and contrast' example.

i understand that this is jon's site and he can do whatever he wants with it, and that steve is cool with the overruling in this case. and i guess retiring and unretiring multiple times is not that big a deal- many people around here have done so and maybe it helps you get a fresh perspective on things. but my point (and opinion) is that jon's tendency to be erratic does not help the site nor the scene, and i'm talking specifically about having a civil relationship with someone one moment and then the next moment shooting them down out of the blue. it's strange and puzzling to me.

jon, how did you and i go from being civil and friendly for years to you suddenly raking me over the coals a month or two ago? like i said, i saw the same thing happen between you and pacdude, you and kinsey, you and john, and not too long ago you were blasting pete for some unknown reason.

it would be one thing if you said "i think such-and-such decision you made sucks for such-and-such reason", but in every one of these cases you choose to barely mention the issue that upset you and instead go right for the jugular. sometimes you come over to VPF to make these rants, and sometimes you make them here. and it's not crazy to have a good rant on someone, but when i do it i usually apologise afterwards, own up to being an ass, and we move on. i learned that as a kid and it still seems to work, decades later.

instead, in the VP scene, all these kinds of arguments seem to turn into eternal feuds. i've never really understood how people can hold these grudges so long. so i guess i'll take this opportunity to apologise for offending you somehow, jon, and maybe we can go back to being civil again, but next time i'd appreciate you trying to argue the issue with me and not making things so personal.

I've got to agree with the jerks on this one. This site has gone to fucking hell because of Shocktart there and it'll stay that way as long as he's allowed to invade every thread telling everyone to fuck off all the time.

Actually, I believe his quote was in reference to if you were to spam threads with viagra ads.

Get a grip, I don't threaten, I state things as I read them, I thought you were infering you would spam this site unless your account was removed thus my reply.

Eh, that's the internets for ya.

Oh and as for the Shockspammer, he is banned until October 8th, along with any alias accounts he may create. On his return if he continues in the same vain he will be banned for another 4 weeks. It only takes me 5 mouse clicks to ban any account, it's take far more effort to create them.
