CEO and Khmer440 reach a GENTLEMEN'S AGREEMENT!

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

Still think its quite astounding they banned me for it. Sounds like someone had a sense of humour failure today.
I'm staggered they banned you Garry, I never thought your humour was nasty or confrontational. Out of interest did you get any explanation by PM.

Just curious: what exactly did you post that pissed them off?

Also curious. As someone else said, your humour was never confrontational and you typically made fun of anything/anyone.

First post here. I have just been banned also. I don't know why. I have posted about 20 posts in 4 years. :unknown:

See? You should have posted more! :mrgreen:
Seriously, though, what have you done to deserve this? And: welcome to this board!

Edit: I see you said you don't know why you were banned (yes, it's still early for me, sorry). When was your last post and what was it about, if you don't mind me asking?

No explanation given.

What it seems like they've done is banned a bunch of commonly shared IP addresses based on having banned the users. The problem is that cambodian ISPs don't have a BIG pool of IPs they use.... so the odds of others getting them is high. On top of that, many of you sometimes post from the same public wifi/etc... and there's a screen where admins can see the other people who post from the same IP as any user. They seem to then be banning all of those users because they think they're sock puppets.

I'm still able to access the site. And I was pretty vocal about my "disappointment" of K440 and some admins, probably mores than many who were banned (though not so much in that CEO thread). I find it hard to believe they'd ban a bunch of posters without them being very vocal (at least once). Maybe KIR has been scanning CEO threads for people to ban? Or maybe Garry was considered to be one of those "bores" KIR always talked about banning? Seems a bit weird, but a technical glitch seems far-fetched. Probably more tooth-ache bans...
