    Like the Motley Crue movie, it borders on completely falling to hell. It’s not good, but extremely entertaining.

I'll buy you a beer, take you on a tour of the various shooting sites near my house; columbine, the apartment complex where one of our deputies was shot an killed, arapahoe high school, STEM, and we'll have to take a Lyft or Uber to Aurora because it's a little out of walking distance. Maybe you'll then understand why someone needs to just rant via an brief, innocuous post.”
    How do you guys know he is permanently banned.

    I think calling an admin out personally in PM can also get one perma-bant.

    Y'all Brits and Aussies also celebrate Queen Victoria on this upcoming Monday? Or is that just a Canadian thing?

    After seeing Michael’s post removed, I tried to PM him. The message said he wasn’t receiving messages at this time, so I e-mailed him. That’s how I was able to get a copy of the post that got him banned.

    Here’s the deal, “Thanks a lot for removing my post,” is simply not ban worthy. I would hope all adults would be a little thicker skinned than that.

    I’ve noticed that my post count has been all over the place the last week or so. A few weeks ago, my post count hit 2000, and I made a note of it in another thread. Then a few days ago, I noticed that my post count had gone down to 1978. Yesterday, after a post it went down to 1976. Now it’s going back up........???????

    Does anybody know what would cause this??

    The mods probably found a thread from 2009 where someone posted a YouTube video that said d*ck or s***.

    They were right to do it. The Pearl brand is nothing without their squeaky clean web forum.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it was other Chit Chat threads.

    in fewer and more succinct terms , thats what i was saying ...lol
    i followed my own advice and took the rest of the week off the forum ...now im not so perturbed, but i still think that was poorly handled, and maybe should be re addressed i think calmer heads might come to a more equitable solution. opus, is one of the older , better members, well liked by most ,and contributing member,so i believe , yet another chance could be in order.. i mean ,nobody has to listen to me , its just my opinion

    Yeah - the overmoderation here back in the day is what caused me to spinoff Drumrock....and I could spin it up again, but I don't have a lot of time these days, and I let the domain registration expire so now someone has snagged it and wants 50k to "sell it" .....If I had bandwidth I'd come up with another concept....but none.....I get that Pearl as a brand has to keep some amount of decorum here but at times it's way overboard, almost to the point of nausea....
