    Default Lingo is gone

    On behalf of the CUF committee:

    Because of repeated violations of our rules, Johnny Lingo was warned some time ago that further violations of the rules would not be tolerated. Today, he again engaged in abusive conduct that is more of the same behavior that has been problematic for so long.

    This is a very tolerant community which is more lightly moderated that any other of its kind. Nevertheless, there are rules here and the warnings that are given must have meaning. Johnny Lingo has had every opportunity to conform himself to our standards and not only has he failed to consistently do this, but has frequently gone out of his way to violate the rule.

    Accordingly, Johnny Lingo's account has been permanently suspended.

    I think that this would be well served to be posted in the Town Hall.

    Lingo was considerate enough to make this one an easy call. Good job, execs.

    Wow, I can't believe this actually happened. I think I'm actually going to miss Lingo.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    I don't care what the seven Moose Whistles say. I think we have a 10-cow executive committee.

    Too bad.

    On the plus side, we will now get to test our abilities to ferret out pseudonym posters. It got to be kind of fun back in the day.

    No, but I often pick at them.

    Lingo has been a big part of this board, like him or not, since it was started. Its entirely possible that I might get nostalgic about the Lingo days at one point.

    Look at the edges of the surface of the milk. It doesn't look good. It's going sour or been poisoned. I think tooblue is saying someting else, something harsher about this place. He's saying it's rotten to the core!

    If he is the core, then he is the least rotten area if you follow the idiom exactly

    you know, if you think about it "manure" really isn't a bad word: "ma" and "newer." Both pretty good things.

    No, it just means that he may have been the last to become rotten, but he is just as rotten as the rest of it. IOW, no surgery can save any thing good. ALthogh that doies prove the analogy doesnt work. Oh well.

    tooblue, knock it off.

    I'm not on, nor do I speak for, the committee. But it seems the decision was hardly arbitrary. The rules are explicitly stated, and lingo repeatedly and deliberately refused to comply. There is no injustice here. Find something else to rant about.

    Sure, then someone should be forced to have a Lost character as their avatar. This idea really sounds like it could turn into something!

    tooblue,

    What changed with you? You are now the ACLU of the board. And not in a good way.
