Whats with the sig rules?

Thats twice! today it seems my sig line has offended a mod or mods.
The first one got deleted this morning a couple of hours after it appeared...with about a 5 minute warning via PM for me to remove it myself (sorry Zan, I was on the toilet) or it would be removed and now I`m just discovering my sig, a quote from my favorite cartoon character (Ned Flanders of "The Simpsons"fame for `diddly-sakes!!`) has some how bit the dust.

Whats the deal here? You all seem like level headed guys and gals able to hold your own.
I can c/p articles from other sources without a prob but cannot quote a line from a cartoon character in my sig line? *confused*

Yeah you couldnt have an ulterior motive like trying to work around the mod requests to stop the name calling....you're a die hard Simpsons fan, right?

What are you suggesting Triedit?

Isn't that the name you use for a member here, in reference to their childhood rape incident?

Im not suggesting. Im flat out accusing you of being an *** about this. You know damn well that crap doesnt fly. In my 4+ years of seeing you online you've never once talked about the Simpsons.

The mods here aren't stupid and gullible. Find a decent sig.

Joey, I totally agree with triedit and the mods on this one. Find something else that isn't offensive.

Ned Flanders has always struck my funny-bone with his `diddly this and diddly that`. I tease my brother all the time with the same lines (my bro actually looks and sounds like Ned).
I could very well quote Homer or Marge Simpson I guess or put whatever I wish as a sig line but how am I to know if it`s going to bother or entertain another member? Are we obligated to change our sig lines according to members/mods likes and dislikes?

If it is referring to an incident like a member being raped during their childhood, then yes it would be an obligation.

So my avatar I had for months on the other board nor my references to the Simpsons gang over the years and their antics don`t register to you?
This sort of reminds me of the time I called another Viner member a goof only till that member decided to turn it in to a personal thing.

Each term has different meanings....look them up.
Ron was a bufoon and Davy-da-Diddler is a cheat.
I know nothing of their factual backgrounds off-line but the nicks I call them certainly suits their on-line time..

Do we have a group from another forum who have moved here in ensemble?

You all seem to know each other and have familiarity - I've been absent so missed all the action.

Hope you are enjoying some of the new 'faces' around here.

I like y'all and your posts - please stay out of trouble - don't want to lose you.

This post pretty much negates every other word you wrote in this thread. Is it possible you've really underestimated how malicious this sort of behaviour is?

Joey, please just stop it. You know the background so don't play innocent. We are talking about something extremely personal, private and hurtful here...moreso than anything that was actually ever said there. We are talking about an innocent child. Just let it be. Please!

And I pray to God you won't mention any names, Joey. Let this rest, please.

Oh yes, Curiosity, our community has acquired some new members that migrated here from another forum. We are doing our very best to welcome them each and all. You may notice a few growing pains as some of the newbies acclimatise to the way we hope to see each other treated here. It's a work in progress, but overall, I think most have settled in quite nicely... and a huge welcome back to you too, btw. You were missed.

Joey, I have such great respect for you. Right now, I am trying so hard to deal with Buster's death and you know how sensitive I am. I am only on here to distract myself but you know how I feel about children who have been raped. I had some in my classes. You and I have talked in depth about this subject and you know that this is a subject that is extremely near to my heart. Please don't make fun of someone who has been in that situation. That is more than I can bear, especially now. Please don't get yourself banned, hon. Just stop. Please.

"names"?? Thorry Thue..I`m not following you.

I know Dave has wagged his tail and wiggled his way into the gentle hearts and minds of most of our new found friends with his mouth and antics but fresh wounds from only a month ago are still that....fresh.

Were talking `super troll` here folks.


For about 3 or 4 yrs Dave appeared on the old board in about a dozen names....and characters

If we need to discuss the old board, I recall you were banned about as many times as Dave. But nobody is holding that against you here.

The old board is dead. I can only imagine what the regulars here are feeling about the endless discussions about what happened on the vine.

And if you want a new sig line from the Simpons, I got one for you:

"D'oh" -- Homer Simpson

No need to thank me. Lets move on.

Here's some for ya

Ned Flanders:
I've done everything the Bible says - even the stuff that contradicts the other stuff!
"Well, sir, I hate to be suspicious aloysius on you, but did you steal my air conditioner."
"Listen, folks, there's no magic formula. I just follow the three C's : clean living, chewing thoroughly and a daily dose of vitamin church."
"Well get out the Crayolas and color me tickled pink!"
"Ooh, it's going on 8:30. I'd better call Maude and tell her where I am."
"The lights, the noise, the letter X. It's all designed to inflame the senses. I'm overstimulated. I've gotta get out of this town."
"Well kids looks like this year we’re gonna have an imaginary Christmas."
Now throughout history, when people get wood, they'll think of Trojans

Joey , look i dunno this whole grudge deal.
It's never been my way, i've forgiven bigger things than online spats.
It's the better thing to do.
You and unf and others thought it was just going to be like an hour and voila , dave is banned and you could all have another good lol.

you forgot my intial way when i first joined the vine. Pretty much the same as here.In real life the whole neighborhood gets along with me.Hell tellers and check out girls have fought over which line i enter as a running gag.


Not going to rehash how it got so bad, but hey here's the deal.

I don't hate you, I don't hate unf, plain and simple.
We all could be just fine here with the 3 of us not locked in some hate deal.

me and unf have a way to post something now and then thats easy to knock about and have a good lol at by others, hell everyone here takes their forum lumps. It's part of the attraction...Why can't we just get back to that without all the rest of it.

It's easy joey , it's a new forum .....you ,me and unf all did stuff to get banned back in the ole vine..everyone argued there at one time or another.Why can't we just bury the hatchet and get on with it.....

puts out both hands to both of you fellers
peace

At least all of us aren't bad.

It is a shame that the crap seems to be bubbling over here now.

None of you are bad, Shadowshiv. I've read posts by each and every one of you that have somehow conributed in a positive way to CC. It's the history betwween some of you that's bad. It's a unique situation to me. I've never seen a whole group up and move to a new site - part and parcel - bringing everything that made them a unique community to a bigger one and begin the process of merging with their new community. I have to say, it seems a rare opportunity for the whole lot of you to start fresh and find new things - better things - to see within one another. I truley wish you all the good judgement to at least try and make things right with each other.... or at the very least, tolerable for yourselves.... an of course, therefore tolerable for us too. It's also a unique situation that we as mods, and as a board find ourselves in. We welcome you, but we've recently recovered from some rough times ourselves here, and with some patience, tolerance and perseverence, we've managed to find a comfortable equilibrium for ourselves.... we'd like very much to sustain that, and we see that most of you would like to join us at that level. This will eventually pass, all forum dramas do, one way or another. Sure would be nice if everyone was left standing at the end of the day though, hmmm?

To the new members here who have brought some stuff with them...

I know it's difficult to shuck off previous encounters on other forums ... hell I move around purposely avoiding one creature I cannot tolerate for reasons of my own.... and have to take breathers on occasion so I am not impervious to the uber bitch role myself if pushed by the 'hot button Mata Hari". It's not a win-win situation at all.

Sometimes it is difficult to remove all the scars and memories.... but it's a good thing not to bring the baggage with you because you don't give yourselves an opportunity to start out in a new neighborhood with some new buddies.

Don't cut us off be replicating your situations at the previous place.... just take us for some new ideas and new conversation. Give yourselves another chance - it's worth a try yes?

I think you all - if in fact I've read all of you now - are a boost to the group and hope you decide to stay and have some great times here.

It's been a while since I have had such a fun day on a forum as I did yesterday and thank all the new membership (plus some dear regulars here).... for the much needed R&R.... Curio

I, for one, am delighted to be here and meeting new people. Our old group took great delight in scaring off newcomers to the point where inbreeding was soon going to become necessary if we wanted any new members.
