If you must know I have been off work in the past few months. well I joined a bunch of web forums to keep from going mad. well the one over at Cracked is just insane. the admin there is a tyrant and a his minions are even worse. they delete so much stuff I do not see how they stay up and running other then by pure logistics of posts. this one thread is called the Macro image thread which is much like our Motivationals thread. so I post a few odd pics I do that are either originals or mix of originals. this guy keeps deleting shit so I got banned for posting this one



its the editor of cracked and head admin of the forum...no sense of humor at all.

I got banned from a forum too about a month ago! I was a vendor on Jeepfourm and when I went to renew my vendor subscription he wanted $100 a month! When I questioned the cost via PM, the douch wouldn't reply so I posted questions in the forum... he got all pissy and banned me!! Then he removed the vendor subscription price so the public wouldn't see it and told me

Thanks!

That's how they treat their vendors there so beware... I'm sure they treat their members the same!! Him!

That douchebag at jeepforum is going apeshit on profit margins. You should see all the stuff he has been talking about on some private admin sites. That guy has been blinded by dollar signs.

Profit is not a dirty word and I'm all for someone making a profit but $1200 a year is a little much I'd say. Hell, Pirate is still only $240 a year!!
Members like to take advantage of the discounts that the vendors offer so you can't expect a vendor to offer discounts, do giveaways and pay $100 a month...

What private admin site is he on? PM please...

CC I think the same thing is going on at cracked. they actually have a section to post where articles have been hijacked and stolen. so if a user finds one they can report it. on the flip side they seem a bit uptight and snobby there. I was like a fly in the ointment there ;)

I just went to look at cracked.com and I got this message from the content filter at work:

I'm surprised they haven't blocked this site yet.

Well, you did start a thread about getting banned. Did you not think someone was going to ask for more info? Or should I have just said; Cool story bro?

This site is constantly blocked from "nanny" monitoring sites that then blacklist the site on many company networks that use their services. I just fill out the paperwork to have the site removed. About once a week.
