Dude I already told you I am not him. I'm 10 posts old and all my posts were in one thread talking to one guy. How can anyone derive any resemblance between two anonymous internet users from that.

No, Anybody who is banned, permanently or otherwise, will show that status in their profile or profile summary to the left of their posts .

No, and it was not a WAB-targeted event.

As per your question, it's answered by our missing admin Tarek somewhere in the Forum Guidelines. 10-15 posts. It's against spammers.

For Gods sake don't tempt the man. You might be prepared to call his bluff but what about the rest of us? We have to live with the mental images/consequences as well you know. Lets just have a little 'detente' here. Yellow doesn't 'push the button' and the rest of WAB doesn't have to pull their eyeballs out.

I wouldn't call yellow a troll. Trolls are unpleasant and almost always can't back up their statements/boasts/arguments with facts. The thing is based on past experience I think Yellow might just have an un-posted stock of CD pictures. Why take the risk? Think of the consequences Dok. :eek:

Colonel, I apologize for my inexcusable behavior.

It's just that Monash and DoK baited me into that and I was not strong enough to resist.

Also, I knew it would bring Stitch out of the woods as he is a closet Celine lover so it was a win/win situation.

My most sincere apologies, sir!

Long story, and one for which I am inadequately equipped to explain; something to do with "French Canadians" and hockey sticks and single-malt whiskey, not necessarily in that order.

Hi- I've been trying to post some photos and for some reason they are not posting. I've posted photos in the past, the last one that posted was July 18 in the USS Salem to reopen thread. I've disabled my adblocker and NoScript for this site even though they've caused me no problems before. When I use the insert image and basic uploader it shows request sent to World Affairs Board, waiting for reply- then nothing. Anything I'm missing?
