    Don't let the "vault door" hit you in the ass on the way out
    oh and........
    Sorry you all have chosen to air this out in public...
    A PM would have probably been better.

    I'll respectfully disagree. This is a known problem, we are working to solve, and you knew that probably better than any member. You made a choice to post. No one made you do it at gunpoint. You seem to want to believe that you're a martyr and we had you in the crosshairs, but a long-standing history of me standing up for you and trying desperately to smooth things over for you is proof of the opposite. I *AM* sorry, @Shark Vape, that your content is gone. However, because you cannot claim ignorance as to the problem that resulted in this outcome, the responsibility rests squarely on you. The mods have time and again all but *begged* you not to post in those threads, yet you continued. This had nothing to do with management and security, and everything to do with NOT heeding good advice that was intended to protect you.

    As for PMs, I'm happy to answer messages wherever they are. It was here, so I answered here.

    And if you're looking for a Forum that treats members with "so little regard", you don't have to look hard. In fact, our team has spent more time apologizing and trying to fix this than any other would have. Elsewhere, you wouldn't be getting long responses from moderators and admins..... you'd have been "moved on".

    We're not out to get you @Shark Vape...... we never were...... I personally enjoy you being here, and from our past interactions, you know that. I hope you'll continue, and I really hope that when we try to advise you of things intended to protect you, you'll listen. Our tech team are great at what they do, but they aren't magicians..... until this problem is solved, please do what is necessary to ensure you aren't affected by it.

    I see you're "posting as a member" again. Oooo... body part profanities. Cool.

    Yeah, I saved that for posterity. I save lotsa stuff...
    You wanna talk nasty to me some more? Or are we done here?

    edited back cause hopefully we're done here.

    Cut the crap, @Shark Vape...... seriously. It's only the very permissive rules of the forum that have prevented me from just deleting that post.
    It's uncalled for. Clearly, you two aren't bosom buddies, but that doesn't excuse an attack of this nature.

    As for being fired from ECF...... I'd count that as a point in her favor, if it were true.

    Go outside and get some air......

    I'm no IT expert but I think the spam invasion is being helped by your sign up security question...
    "What are the first 4 letters in Vaping Underground?"

    I think the spammers may have figured this one out... :rolleyes:
    Please fix your forum security T.

    You say Asset, I say

    Ass In Hole Meme.jpg

    For your two years of "Content" the first part of which eventually got you banned for violating the the very few rules of the forum, but @TygerTyger let you back in for reasons that I don't understand, then when you come back you make a Half Assed (see the reoccurring theme here) attempt to be an actual contributing member of the forum, inter-spaced with again skirting the rules, picking fights with other members, denigrating the mods and most lately like Tyger said "Standing on top of a hill in a lightening storm with a raised Golf Club" you got your ASS (see prior mentions above) freaking SPAM BANNED in spite of being told repeatedly to KNOCK IT THE HELL OFF!

    Oh wait you can't cause I'm not a damn mod.
    I'm trying to get you to stop being an idiot.I like you and would hate to have to use the ignore feature on somebody I considered to be a friend.

    Yours, James.

    Obviously it was because you threatened another member...D'uh!
    Which is what worried me.Not you being penalized for it.
    Just so I'm perfectly clear on this.
    Any actual threat of violence on anybody online is a felony in every state in the United States.
    In my opinion you got lucky.
    Now stop being an arse...Please?

    So much tenacity being wasted on such a trifle. Why not direct all the hostility at people who are trying to take away the reason for all your precious content..

    @Shark Vape , with all due respect that was not directed at @Whiskey

    ;)

    I don't know about what happened in the past but I've enjoyed your content since I've joined. I would hate to see it disappear over a technical issue.

    I'm sure a few were wondering when I'd find my way into this discussion.

    <looks around, shakes head at SV, laughs at SV, feeling pissed toward SV>

    That'll do. SMH.

    <meekly> yeah, replied to a weight loss spam and how their crap made my dick fall off.

    Knew one shouldn't reply, since it bumps the thread to the top. Had no idea that sometimes those that reply get sucked into the ban vacuum. Eep!! Thanks @Huckleberried for watching my back

    (eta: I crossed with outwest here... this is reply to Huck)


    I know.

    That's why SV gets zero sympathy.
    He was not only fully aware... he was flaunting it thinking it couldn't/wouldn't happen to him.
    And besides... it was just too much to limit him that way. :rolleyes:

    I didn't even know he got hit for a week or so... then I saw his whining posts.
    No taking responsibility... just blaming the staff and code maintenance.

    Fuck you Sharkie. :mad:

    Yeah, I'm at a loss there. Nothing I could say helped, nothing calmed the situation, nothing anyone said would ever be the right thing. Cautions were posted repeatedly.

    Cautions my ass.
    In direct thread convos... both Artemis and I begged him to stop joking around in the SPAM threads.

    We tried to explain how stunningly annoying it is to have all of your past posts evaporate. :headbang:

    In a few months, after he has again, and again, and again reopened an old thread to find all those gaps... then he'll understand. But he'll still blame you. :rolleyes:

    I think this was the only one that remained unlocked, can't recall of the top of my head.... BUT, the fact that it gets bumped and lands in the timeline ain't a bad thing, IMO. PLUS, now I know at least one more person knows what to do :D
