You said:

Your request has been honored.

Is he still a member I'd like to send him a pm at least, or hope he can read my posts?? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I never got to give a proper answer.

Nothing has been done at this end to modify his membership status.

He stated that he was unhappy with the situation here, and that he was planning on terminating his membership.

He also specifically requested that his various threads be "shut down".

well if he ever checks here again i want to say that his posts ( as long as they may have been http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif) added a little something more to this forum, something i'm sure i'm not the only one, made me look more forward to checking in here. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

What's he going off about ???


11-15-2007, 02:16 PM
I Must have been on Planet Zog, don't know what's gone on but enjoyed reading his posts

11-15-2007, 02:30 PM
Well, ....He was warned about making personal attacks against other users; ....and RJ suggested that excessive "self-bumps" were discourteous to other users.

He apparently didn't care for that sort of constructive criticism.

Ah!.. the truth hurts sometimes, but maybe it's for the better.

Those who take your clothes in summer may not be your friends.
That who dump warm sh1t on you during winter might be your friends.

I will add that at no point was he asked to leave the forum by any Moderator here.

The choice to leave, and the request that all his threads be removed was entirely his own and we have have done as he asked, as we would with any forum members request of the same.

I am sure it is due to inattention on my part, but I really don't know:

Where did the "Gimme ... GARLIC & BEETROOT" thing come from????


11-15-2007, 02:52 PM

Good question! I've never seen that on a restaurant menu - is it a local delicacy?

I know my wife had some unusual cravings in her pregnancies but that I have to say wasn't one of them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Tactfully dealt with by the Moderators...keeps the Forum as good as it is.

Ahhh yes Freddie, I read about that awhile ago so knew what your sig was on about and was wondering when someone will bring it up. Funny on the surface but sad really. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Anyway in the hope Nimitz will still read the forum I will compose my comprehensive answer to his Zhukov critique...sad he seemed to throw his toys out of the pram.

Oh no, I really did like his posts, they were alway interesting to read. I especially like his heroic failures threads. Oh well, I'll miss seeing his posts... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I have to agree with Golden Eagle
I really did like his posts, they were alway interesting to read

He had done a lot of work compiling the material, and had some interesting insights. However, some of his other posts weren't as good ....

Nimitz, I know you'll stop by to read this (it's like an old habit, you've been doing it for so long), you have really misinterpreted Real Jambo's position: that you be warned is something, but taking it personal is another. You could have easily continued what you were so good at doing without getting involved in the so called "squabbles" which were refered previously. It sucks, here we go again and loose another intuitive member for a set of obscure reasons. Personally, I'd like saying it would be for the best because I can't think of your being bruised to your ego so much that it made you decide of deserting, but if it is what's truly happened, someone new might just check in and become part of the crew; and here people forgive easily but never forget. Sorry man, you missed a good opportunity at building something strong with us and I dare say that the Moderators will not give you a second chance so to speak; here, these theatrics meant the first and last bowing out of your "career".

Wow, I must have lost a chapter... as much as you have! Read the first post of this thread and the others as well... Unless it is really not how it should have developped: Sorry if I was a bit harsh in some of my prior comments in this thread.

You might shed some light on this, I am sure that it would be refreshing for us and the Modes to know...
