Careful now!

Desperate. And a little bit stupid highlighting the thread you're already posting in.

Even for you.

I find the notion that...

Quite amusing. I can assure any and all that if I don't have this power - and I don't - that somebody who's not a mod certainly doesn't either. Which makes this...

even more amusing, especially coming from the person that claimed insider knowledge on how Coan managed to single-handedly get rid of Googa (and anyone else he doesn't like, apparently). I'm wondering on what basis this is assumed?

I will repeat for the umpteenth time, this is Jethro's board, Jethro's right to decide who stays and who goes, at his sole discretion. It's not a power anyone else has or for that matter, (speaking merely for myself), wants.

Honestly, you could set your clock by it.

I'm wondering if you could point me in the direction of some evidence of where I've made this claim? Just because Coan writes "hounds people off the board" under his username it doesn't mean I claim it to be true. I said Coan bullied and was horrible to GM and manage to corral a number of posters against him. That's not the same and you know it.

I've bolded it for you, just so you don't miss it.

Where I come from "led to" means roughly the same thing as "is responsible for."

While you're at it, maybe you can also explain how you know who did and didn't PM who? Other than obviously what's been made public?

We don't know if anybody Pmd Jethro asking for Skope to be banned.

The decision ultimately lies with Jethro though of course.

The rest is conjecture.

That's not the same and you know it. What I'm saying there is that the admins know who created the false GM account. And the false GM account posted a series of threads and Jethro said, "I've had enough of this" and banned GM. So I'm claiming a link. It is supposition, but I wasn't the only one supposin'.

What you post tells me is that it was John who created the false GM account, thank you. So that bit of supposin' was right.

My conjecture is that this almost certainly happened. But the notion that it’s a basis for the decision is not only wrong but imo, insulting.

Fair enough. I do think it would be in the board's interest to know if it was Coan who set up the fake GM account, as it wasn't just parody but nasty. This is why I've often said that the admins were complicit, because they know the identity of the aliases doing things such as posting as GM.
See, if it isn't Coan, I will have to retract everything and post a huge apology. Which I will do once I know who did create the account.
