I guess this is old news, but what happened to Manny?
Do a search, there are plenty of posts about it. I'm pretty sure no one wants to rehash it right now though.
The same thing that happened to Howard Dean.
Manny evidently thought himself , too good for the likes of us. He imploaded... then cried and whined about it to da bosses and was told to basically, be gone. he wasn't happy with that decision. So he is gone. end of story.
I'm 5 to 8 hours ahead of you guys but I'm weeks behind in the news, I miss all the action around here.
Just think of it this way Mark your 5-8 hours ahead of the useless BS.
Ha, yeah but everytime I sign in someone's been nailed to the wall and I never know why. All I see is a trail of blood and a hole in the door! I never know who did what
so what your saying you want to be nailed to a wall we can catch you up real quick
Any time baby!
I'm just waiting on the plane ticket and across the pond i go
Manny got preachy.. Thought the forum unchristian-like, complained to Steve then threatened lawsuits. goodbye..
He did leave an indelable mark tho, he is the reason behind this rash of "build threads" over the last 6 months... Gave everyone the bug that they needed to create one...
No offense, but that's a tad simplified. Manny was an asspain, he got preachy and then he was attacked and lost control of himself. Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with Manny, but he most certainly was not the only member that behaved badly, however he absolutely deserved a banning.
I'm sure others see it differently, but that's my dos centavos.
Darwinism CK5 style...
"get the fock out of the pool asshat."
Manny made the fatal error of forgetting that freedom of speech and freedom of religion goes both ways. Then he wanted to involve a multinational task force to have most of the CK5 staff and a good number of members here arrested for hate crimes...
Then he went on a massive tirade against Steve and this site in general in his build thread...going as far as publicly posting up copies of emails and private messages between himself and Steve Fox. These of course were put up without prior knowledge on Steve's part and definitely not with Steve's permission.
There is more, but most of us are tired of talking about it. As usual the CK5 public here doesn't get to see various emails, and pm's from Manny to a few of us mods (and Steve). Then there are a boatload of deleted replies by Manny as well as deleted threads.
If Manny hadn't become so damn preachy and thin skinned he wouldn't have gotten the response he got from certain people here. Instead he went further off the deep end. Manny got the exact same chance here at CK5 as anyone gets. What he chose to do with that chance led up to and ultimately caused his banning. He made every choice along the way...
he was voted off the island
the tribe has spoken
simple was what I was going for... the cliff notes, if you will..
I agree with everything you just said.
haha damn! how is it every time I have a heck of a week with tests, lots of h.w. and finals you guys go off and have all the fun w/o me?!?!?! shesh...someone lmk whats up next time!
Next time we'll ban anyone that uses "iono" instead of I don't know... and then spend weeks laughing at him and patting ourselves on the back for finally ridding CK5 of anyone that would do that.
*gasp*!!! iono what you bad cops have against iono?
