First the grumpy-user-hack for equating the typical WG to a battered wife (but he loves me), followed by a full ban for speaking my mind about Skelton on another forum (XMT). Silly Dubonnet Davis still thinks he can control the internet.

Not banned anywhere, been primarily a WUS lurker, still concerned about some of their overzealous mods though

Ditto. Didnt even discover it had happened for weeks. I knew it was supposed to but never checked on it. Proud to be a member of a group for once.

Does anyone have any official definitions for:
asshat
assclown

Whats the difference? Inquiring minds want to know.

These are not "official" definitions, but will perhaps serve until such definitions are codified.

Asshat: Description of detractors, "troublesome" members or non-koolaid drinkers used among themselves by mods at WG - used here at WL (originally by those labeled as such at WG and revealed to the general membership in an inadvertently misdirected "mods only" post) as a badge of honor and awarded for services or acts above and beyond.

Assclown: The opposite of the above - used here at WL to describe ass-kissers, brown nosers, cheeto-eaters, koolaid swillers, Invicter fanatics, ShopNBC fanbois, admirers of Jimbo, Mongo, Eyal et al and those who practice a willful suspension of disbelief when confronted by truth.

That last is some kind of document, perhaps koi can make sense of it?



These revolve around Lord John Vargas, former Doxa employee who went public with the truth about Doxa and some of their bullshit claims including some of their LE models of which there were plenty yet Doxa was saying in public they were not many left. Kind of like the Merm and the "phones are on fire". Doxa threatened me more than once and I was banned at WUS because of them, joining a long line of folks banned by the terror squad and their fanbois.

I was banned at WG's, took them about 3 years to figure out who I was there and here though.
I got banned at WIT a couple of times for being unruly.
Got banned here for switching internet providers and the new IP being banned.
I joined almost every forum, but never even posted at most. I just didn't care for them.
The forums I detest were WG's and Watch Bro's. Neither deserve to be called a forum.

Although I was banned from WG in abstentia.

As far as other sites, I read some threads and check out the sales sections here and there but I don't participate much; there's no place like home.

Same here. I used different user names, but got outed by a "friend" and got the "banned for life" message. I guess that means someone (MD) was paying a lot of attention to this forum. :D

ALL for telling the truth.

...and for the fact of a certain vest-wearing self-proclaimed "horologist" being a member there (on most of these forums) as well. He is a plague to WUS and a disgrace to the NAWCC. Well, truth be told, not only to the NAWCC - to the entire collectors' community.

A nice acronym, WTF. You know you've got to run away from that place even before you register there.

Didn't know you were banned from myBulova. But given that it's a Bulova forum and site, I can only hazard a guess that it was because of the Accuslag?

That's good! Welcome to WatchLords! We'll genuinely look forward to your 'limited edition' posts. However, at this early stage in the game, you might want to go ahead and just introduce yourself in the New Members' Thread; you can't go wrong there...well, not much, anyhow... :???:

I got "grumpy-user" at 'geeks.

I thought they would like me there, being that I don't have anything against Chinese movements and all. Image

Banned twice at WUS. Each times it was for pointing out problems with sponsors the mods didn't want highlighted.

Never been banned but back in the WTF days, the fucker-owner of the site took away my PM capabilities because I disagreed with his policies, via PM to him, AND I was one of his mods. And that has been permanent.

I was banned from WUS for calling someone a cunt. Problem was I wrote it in a post, not in a PM as I thought. I submitted it, closed the tab and thought no more of it, but I had written it in the wrong tab :/.

Oh well. I'm not a snowflake who gives a hard fuck about brands or showing off, so that place isn't for me and I'm not sure I ever learned anything there anyway.
