    Some don't care who they flamethrow at. Just bring a big enough water house, or steam machine and be sure to have it ready.

    lol what is with you people and needing to make these public apologies?

    unless you people actually know each other in real life...who cares...lol XDD
    so you're saying the fact that you're on the internet means manners should be thrown out?

    im sure you're smart enough to realize that there's another man sitting behind his computer replying to you; a person, with feelings.

    Sly way to boost your post count David.

    Seriously though, with all the angst recently on display here, it's so nice to see this thread. Takes a lot to recognize you're wrong, and even more to admit it publicly. While at times you've both left me , and caused more than I care to mention, today I'm all . Yeah, it's the internet. So what! The interpersonal relations are still real. Damn, I need a group hug. *sniff sniff*

    I don't know who either of these people are but Kudos to them both. I read on here more than I post and I too have seen lots of rudeness between people and it doesn't have to be that way.

    Back in '99, a rural preacher published an article about how there are demons in the internet and the faster internet connections allow for larger demons to download into peoples computers. Making, Good, Christian men (Fathers and husbands) who would never buy a porno mag, download porn to their computers.

    A friend of mine (A former preacher, like me, and now an office mate) and I were talking about it. Tony made a good point. It had nothing to do with demons, but the animosity. People do things, say things, buy things.. online that they would never do in person. Because they think they are anonymous.

    They think that, because there are hundreds, even thousands of miles between them and the other person who they will never meet face to face, they can be an @$$ and it not hurt anyone.

    The point you make out, and a lot of people here should remember, is that there is a real person at the other end of that wire, reading what you write. When someone calls them a NOOB or Loser, or claims to PWN them, it's insulting.

    Recent events involving a now Banned member have ruined CB for me. Honestly, the MOD's let this person run rampant on here too long before taking action. Just like a woman that denies the lump in her breast too long before getting it cut out... the cancer spread and is now popping back up in new forms.

    This being said, you will notice my participation here is going way down. I'm disheartened with CB. The events involving the aforementioned banned user, including MOD's defending his direct insulting of another members IQ, has left a bad taste in my mouth.

    I'm not leaving, yet. But, don't expect as much active participation from me. I'll pop in once a day or so and see if there is anyone I can help. Other than that, I'm pretty much done with this place.

    @Robby, please don't go. I, for one, have always respected your advise. I usually stay out of these kind of conversations. I want to reserve my energy here for learning and offering what I've learned. As for the CB MODs and the user that got banned, I've seen posts which makes me suspecious that user is back. Wish they would ban by IP address and not just user name. There's a post just a few down from here where some are calling others racist. Needs attention by the MODs. I'm staying outa that one; nothing can be learned there.

    Banning by IP is not practical these days with most ISP's using DHCP, and free proxy services like the TOR network.

    All someone has to do is reset their connection and they have a new IP meaning some other user can't get to the site when they get that IP from their ISP.

    Also, certain parts of the world force all of their users through a Proxy, especially for international connections. This means all of their users look like they are coming from one IP.
    All we can do is just hit the RED TRIANGLE on each offensive post to alert the mods.

    As for that "One User" Last count, he's been back and banned with several ID's in the last week. Including one this morning.

    I'm glad you're doing better, Mr. Wulf. It wasn't doing me any good either. I feel a lot better about this, but that whole group hug idea can just go to blazes!

    Robby, you must do a rethink on leaving. You've helped me on many occasions. For God's sake you are one of the main contributors. Don't let the ****** get you down. There are more good people than bad on this forum.

    Stay with it my friend.

    I must have missed something here, who was the CB member that was banned? Must admit, I haven't seen a certain Dubai chappy around lately.
    Come on guys, I hate secrets.

    I said I wasn't leaving, yet... but that is subject to change. I just have a very bitter taste in my mouth after the dealing with the aforementioned banned member... who happens to be the chap from Dubai you refer to. And, who keeps coming back with different ID's and getting banded right away because he's posting the same old insults and crap.

    Thanks for your reply Robby. Thought it must be that prat.

    From what you say. It looks like the Mods are tracking his every move. Hope so. Don't want to ever hear from him again.
