Perhaps all these problems could be solved by introducing an emergency ammendment to the coc with issues concerning the other AE site a kind of Patriot Act.

From someone who in the last few weeks turned full circle from being a rebel to becoming the system's bitch, these words are weak.

What words? I'm just commenting on a rather weak jibe. Think what you like about the rest.

Paul is the people's hero in this civil war between .COM Despotism and .NET Oligarchy.

Personally I read the .NET, but also love the .COM site. Because: 
a. it provides a free mirror service for the archive
b. it draws right-wing crackpots away from .NET. 
c. it gave us the AE quote of the year: 'I fought Ceausescu and never masturbated'.

You put yourself in that mess, if Cyrus refuses to resign your mod status, that is up to you to make him. Not myself or anyone else. the ban sticks until you're mod status is removed at .com.

I don't know what to say about your current status, but I've enjoyed your contribution in various threads in AE, and it's a pity to not have you here.

It is fine it will help me cut back on forum use with my new schedule the end of this month. If I decide to post on a history forum I found another one just as busy as both .com and .net combined.   No hard feeling and all are forgiven since the history forum is only a small portion of my life.  At least I can still post on .com but even that I will not have time for.  
best to all both friend and foes LOL  Byzantine emp you have my email so if you want keep in contact.  Cayaha I will miss you!! Cry    I will not post again here again or come under another user name,
cheers to all. Also good to others such as pinguin, Canadian guy, regi and others I have enjoyed posting withBig smile

It would be a shame to find out the Byz Emp voted to ban me. The others I can see but come on Byzantine. At one time we use to take sides together.   things are picking up at .com but it is the right pace for me now to moderate.

It was unanimous among the council, you were asked several times to renounce the Mod status (which you asked Cyrus for), and you'd be allowed to stay on this site. You chose your own destiny. Have fun.

He made a public show of rejecting it, but Cyrus wouldn't. If you ask me we were a little heavy handed and not prepared to look at his individual case. (Eaglecap is missed)

That was his most recent comment.  and the earlier guest thread he made alone should be enough offense.... of course unless we want to make an exception just for eaglecap.

I see no reason at all why Eaglecap should be treated any differently from anyone else.

I just think a carte blanche approach was taken when it seemed very clear to me that he made a public show of rejecting it - he can't help it if Cyrus refuses to accept his rejection. This made him a special case in my eyes.

Eaglecap you have run out of your welcome as a guest on this forum. We have no inclination to revisit your demise nor will we hear your complaints regarding those who voted in favor of ousting you. They, btw, are outstanding members with concern for the well being of this forum. You, on the other hand, were a very good member who chose a precarious destiny fully knowing the consequences beforehand.

It is totally so uncool and why u need to compare the .com and .net and mentioned it in here? (but where the post? I couldn't see it anymore). This is something I never expected from you. I can't see any reason why we need you back in here anyway...Confused
