Banned users thread?

Pretty much any non-KISS or music topic goes here; It's suggested that users avoid opening topics they might be offended by or not want to participate in. Ignorance can be bliss...

I kid. I kid. πŸ‘€πŸ˜‹
I'm ill, I've survived 1,000 co-workers being laid off, I'm overworked, I'm sick of fucking work-from-home, I'm sick of 4 garbage collections per week taking 2 hours at 190dB or garbage trucks screaming down the road at 0400, I'm sick of wankers revving their Harley's, and J-pop-rice-burner-exhausts, and I have two books to finish.

And I can't get home to Britain (yet).

And then I check on the board, on my own volition or following an email/call/fax ...

We certainly have a small cadre of miserable twats who are clearly having difficulty dealing with the end of KISS and/or their current circumstances, and move from bashing one member/thing to the next. They literally bash or mock EVERYTHING. It's death by a thousand cuts. Or that last word with a "n" in the middle...

Benevolence doesn't work with a fickle mob, be it a minority or not.

Nevermind the dog barking, ins and outs. It's just frustrating.
My wife loves it. For many of the reasons I stated above. She loves that she can go take a nap if she is feeling a little burnt out. There isn't someone watching over you.

I'd love it too. The less people I have to deal with the better. Lol.

That appears to be the general feeling. People hate their co-workers or even people in general. Much prefer to be home with the people or pets they actually love.

I like my co-workers just fine, but I value my time far more...the hour and a half-plus I save every day avoiding the to and from rush hour commute is enough to make it an absolute win! I get to sleep up until a couple minutes before I start my day and the travel time is just a huge savings...not to mention the thousands of miles a year spared on my vehicle. Covid sucks, but I'm very thankful it resulted in a change to permanently remote!

This is probably an interesting enough topic to have its own thread...

Everyone who joins this place is well aware of the community here. No one is going in like some blind newbie, so there is no need to walk on eggshells like you don't know what goes on here or you don't know the players. You can jump in right away.
True. I lurked for at least a year or two before I actually joined.
I certainly "lurked" for years before I signed up. I don't even remember what made me decide to do that. Anyway, I got wrongly called out as "parody account" and returning banned member pretty much straight away.

Such a psychological wonder to see these things crawl back, time and time again. You gotta wonder what is so keyed into their brain that they think it's good to keep returning to a place where you have shown they do not know how to get along with others. Their only purpose appears to be to disrupt.

A very large amount of the active posters today on the FAQ are all banned members who have returned. Even people you like now with their new names.

This is incredibly common all over the internet on social media and forums. Literally a countless amount of people and I think some people don't actually realize this.

I've noticed you have been grumpy lately (which I can understand with a few of the members coming across as banned previously), but wasn't aware you were dealing with all of that. I hope you get well soon and are able to get the books completed.

Quoted for truth.

Here's a question for Grand Classic.

If Julien banned Grand Classic, will Grand Classic respect Julien and not post at KISSFAQ, re-subscribe, or use a pre-existing alternate username?

GC can certainly fight his own battles...but I would say to his credit, he does not hide from his previous account at all. Have you ever seen any other returning user openly admit who they were and what they were banned for?

Banjumping is the same as stealing: underhandedly granting themselves unfettered access to an experience that they are not entitled to.

The best approach would be to do like Paul Stanley did with Synchin' Stanley on Twitter and deny all ban jumpers any semblance of their fiercely guarded anonymity. Then, you'd start seeing banjumpers showing these platforms proper respect ... pretty damn quick.

The best approach with Syncin' Stanley would have been for Paul to ignore him. Because Paul called him out, a half a million people, or whatever Paul has for followers, now know there is such thing as Syncin' Stanley... Before that, a couple thousand people at most might have been aware.

Over tasteless / lame jokes, differences in political / social opinions, and retweets / reacts, no less. Frankly, I think people need to stop being so nosy in the lives of others. Apparently, WWE fans were in an uproar over Sasha Banks liking a tweet about something I don't care to go into. Pretty absurd. Carrie Stevens supported requirements to verify yourself as well, which I find pretty obtuse. Apparently she thinks giving Amazon your details and verifying your identity on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. is the same, which, uh... no.

I think doxxing is abhorrent, as is bullying, harassing, stalking, etc., whether online, over the phone, or in person. Not cool.

What I think, actually, is that the Admin is completely open and honest about his identity and is providing a well-appreciated virtual fan outlet that is this superior forum. While completely anonymous banjumpers get away with causing him undue stress and harassment.

You seem to ignore the fact that he has ALLOWED people to return and given some a clean slate. It's a case by case thing.

I'm not talking about anyone in particular. And if Admin grants clemency to posters he feels like offering it to, what is that to me? Unauthorized banjumpers remain ...

They are millions strong. It's just part of the internet culture for better or worse.

If you have ever run a forum, you would understand that IP addresses and other info is available to an admin. They typically know when someone has returned immediately, so no one is technically unauthorized unless the admin bans the person again immediately.

Just happened to check this thread and saw where Admin has been unwell. Hoping things get better soon. I couldn’t do a fraction of what you do.

I think it's pretty cool.. when you've got the same user name you started out with 14 years ago. All your posts are tallied. You've got recognizable history..

Instead of having to reboot yourself every month or so.
