    so I listed my e-bay **** on Pirate... and yeah, I know the rules... but I had a full description in the post, then after everything said if you want to see pics, click the link... no one was required to do so... anyway, the mods deleted my posts... twice... then PMed me after the fact... I told him in a not so nice way to shove it, and signed the PM:

    Sincerely,

    Banned and Proud

    Why? Some of the best 4x4/wheeling tech on the planet is available from the PBB. Huuuge knowledge base to draw from there. The atmosphere is waaaay different than here obviously, but it's pretty narrow minded to just say "****'em" cause you can't handle the PBB "n00b" treatment. It's just like pretty much everything else in the world, good sides and bad sides. I get tired of hearing people bitch about the PBB. Man up.

    i dont have a prob with pirate, youre right lots of good info, a whole lot of good people. phnx has the beef with em.
    if my brother starts a fight, imma jump right in, not because he needs defending, just because he's my brother. so what if he did something stupid that needs to be taken out off his ass. right or wrong; thats not something that affects my judgement.
    phnx has an issue that he obviously feels is important enough to argue about, justified or not; its his beef, and getting thrown out of anything always requires a finger to the authority.
    whats the other response? should i have told him to go and apologize? he's a big boy, he made his choice.
    i would have booted his post too, it violated posted rules and he knew it when he posted it.
    does that mean that you dont get pissed if you get a speeding ticket? you know the rules, you still break em.
    i was merely expressing a statment of solidarity.
    i've been thrown out of plenty of places,all of my own doing, but none are as fun as getting thrown out of a good place, you have to just say **** em. i dont hate any of the places, dont want em seen burned to the ground or anything.
    what would you do(aside from not violating the rules)?

    Don't get me wrong here guys... I love the knowledge base available on PBB, I even love the n00b bashing... but when you specifically ask in the post if something is ok to be posted, and to be PMed if it's not ok before it gets deleted... it kinda pisses you off when they delete first, and bitch at you later... I just think some of the guys there are assholes... and I'm not going to hold that against the whole board. I actually thought it as pretty funny that I signed my PM Banned and Proud... heh.

    i have a bit of a gripe with them i just do not like the n00b treatment and some just do not seem to get that your sport is under attack and just add to the problems we all face as 4x4 people. the teck is some of the best AA++ stuff on the net. I bet this is just a case of a few bad apples but do they get more then their share ? :crazy:

    I have a problem with them. I don't like their attitude and I see it seep into other places. Our sport as a whole has enough problems w/o attitudes like that for the Anti's to see. One ML I'm on had a guy with that 'tude join up. I managed to piss him off good enough he hasn't posted in a while. When he complained about my treatment of his posts (I would not attack him personally), no one jumped to his defense. Maybe he'll figure out why and maybe he won't.

    A good natured razzing is one thing, they go way too far way too often.

    Their tech isn't so good that I can't either figure it out on my own or find it somewhere else. Like here, where people are civil to each other and there is a sense of community.

    I dont get it, the rules are posted in the for sale section, and you broke them. Not once, but twice after a mod already deleted your first one. Read the rules, its not that hard.

    You broke the rules. Maybe we can come over to your house and piss in your living room and take a dump in the front yard and we can jump with glee over the fact.

    Face it, very few people have legitimate gripes about PBB. NTSQD is one of them, most everyone else that has a problem with that place, it's either personality or baseless in fact. Get over it.

    Now, now... I've already been back to pirate, apologized to the mod for telling him to shove it, and back to my good natured self again. I didn't read the rules carefully enough I guess the first time... and there was no PM for the first delete as to why it happenned... after the PM, I did my ads properly, and they are still there. It does however mention that there are e-bay links on THIS site's posting, so no one on Pirate gets offended when they look for the pictures.

    Pirate is pretty damn cool, but the attitude is a little testosterone heavy so I keep clear. The builds are amazing though

    Plus there is tons of info on generic stuff. What I mean by that is non vehicle specific. Things like winches, onboard air, propane, etc. I don't post, but I do a lot of searching.

    I actuall like PBB. I don't always like the attitude, but some of it is very funny. I do like the tech, espically about non-GM and generic stuff. I rely on CK5 for most of my GM stuff and a better attitude by far. Both have their place.
