The above is what I get. I guess being banned for pissing off a Doxa mod with a large dose of reality paid off. :mrgreen:

I still think AlbertaTime received the most unfair treatment of any member since I joined.
Take a look at this thread, there were others where I am certain I was an ass to him as well.

True that....Ron's treatment, a total disconnect from fairness judging someone's character, on my part... likely, we have both fun and got aggravated with each other along the way, but I like to think, I gain a friend in the end.

Ron is a great guy and I agree that he was poorly treated. I have known Ron for years not only here but at other forums. It was one of the first times I had to step into a thread here. Any forum should be proud to have him as a member.

Have to admit that I wish I had been as gracious under attack as he was and is!

When I think of the term "gentleman," it is men like him that come to mind!

It's not lost on me that a number of very complimentary -- and even conciliatory -- things were said about me over the past hours, and I want everyone to know that I really appreciate the consideration. Made my day.

I find lots of good in people everywhere I go, and this forum is absolutely included. It's an honour to be able to share in this forum and this hobby with you all Image

Now, back to our regular programming...

TemerityB wrote:Alberta and I really got into it a long while back over politics, but the guy is like an encyclopedia about Chinese watches, and a worthy addition to any forum. I remember another "loud conversation" I had with, I believe, Mark2 (forgive me if I have the wrong Mark), but we jabbered at each other enough where, at the end, we were cool. Mark thought i was too harsh on WGs at that point.

Frankly, I don't think there's anything wrong with arguing if both parties have valid (and interesting) arguments. I think I've mellowed over the last year, and anytime I read something trollish or just plain stoopid, I kind of ignore it (example: I never really chimed in a Willy's meanderings). But it's kinda nice to have the flexibility to take an opposing view (or make a negative comment) without fear of some ass monkey MOD deleting/scrubbing/ass monkeying. And frankly, this hobby has much to be negative about, and that stuff should be called out no matter the verbiage of the writer.


That was me TB. In time, I am coming around to your way of thinking, some of us may be a bit slow, but nothing wrong with a little debate. I still think there could possibly be one or two former WG members allergic to fits sammiches though.

The parody Lalo Police Report is one of my all-time favorite WG posts. As a member of LE he had the insight to make the humor eerily real.
Just laugh out loud funny.

Didn't realize he was the one who penned the "report" which was riotous!

In memory of Mike, an original member of WL and troll killer. Hopefully he is happy in Cali these days.
