in reply to Plea for upvotes.

While I am happy to support (without quite understanding what's going on), I think this is completely the wrong approach. Whatever disagreements are going on, it is not acceptable to just disable your account at will. (And any new one could suffer the same.)

So I request that your account gets re-enabled (if it has been dis-abled and not a technical glitch being the cause after all, in which case additional swearing on your side is counterproductive).

There are some more gods around, aren't they?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Really, I'm not nearly so stupid as to try to ban BrowserUk. I woke up this morning and the first thing I saw on PerlMonks was a private message from Buk asking if I had banned him. It was only later that I saw for the first time BrowserUk's rant. It is a holiday here and I was dead asleep for the entire duration of the rant and supposed intrigue that followed, not waking until over an hour after the accusation was /msg'd to me.

      You don't really need to reply to these messages. People who have been here for many years have seen posts from both of you and know what's what.

      While buk has been very helpful in the past, more and more lately his posts have been insulting, pompous, ranting, gotta have the last word, right-fighting and downright loco paranoid. Did I miss anything? His posts have shifted from being helpful to harmful. In fact, his recent posts are so radically different than his past ones that this stinks of a masquerade attack.

      From you I only remember logical/helpful posts. I didn't do any research, but I'm been here for many many years. I just thought I'd add my opinion for the sake of newcomers.

      I wanted to upvote his post to help him vote again, until I read his last paragraph. No upvotes for silly nasty rubbish. And I find it hard to believe that its the good old buk. I wish we had the good old buk back. Its like the wheel is turning but the hamster's dead.

        Click! From now on, you cannot use this site. No reason, no warning, no appeal.

        You are simply denied the ability to do anything on this site -- challenge, argue, justify, apologise -- by some unknown (and unknowable) individual, with some level of privilege that allows them to exercise unconstrained, incontestable, utterly capricious, and totally without mandate, control over your ability to exist; as far as this site is concerned.

        Could you, given those circumstances, retain your composure?

        "good old buk" has never left this site -- for even one day -- since he first arrived here.

        But, the frustrations of both watching, and suffering at the hands of, those unaccountable few, that exercise total, capricious and invisible control over your interactions here -- a place where I have contributed an average of 5 posts a day, everyday, for 11 years -- tends to peak, when all say is stolen from you.

        If you truly want the "old buk" back. Stand up and be counted. Contest the status quo. Read between the lines and DO SOMETHING about the circumstances that frustrate the "old buk" to the point where reason and politeness become secondary ...

        With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
        Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
        "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
        In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

        Boo--. Let sleeping threads lie.


        Its hard to believe that your post is listed in worst nodes of the week !


        This place becomes more and more a playground for polemic personal attacs and childish vendettas!

        But sadly more and more "monks" seem to support this stile ...

        Maybe its time to to think "don't feed" to the end and to leave and let these guys alone...

        Cheers Rolf

    Of the 12 listed Gods of this place; only one has demonstrate the caprice, malevolence and shear demogodic gall to do it.

    If I am wrong, I will wholeheartedly and sincerely apologise. But, as always, it willl take some form of proof, not just 'his-word-for-it', to convince me I am wrong.

    That will undoubtably come acroos as a high degree of arogance, but when you are right most of the time -- as I tend to be -- when, for that minority of occasions when I am wrong, the accusation of such comes without proof, it is hard to acknowledge.

    I seek not to have any say beyond one-man, one vote, in the running of this place, and have no aspirations for any position of authority; but I do challenge that the personal caprice of a single individual is suffice to render the opinons and preferences of all other monks, great and new completely inconsequential.

    If you have an opnion, you have a right to a voice. Do not let it be suppressed by one, egotistical, manical, self-promotional old-git, who's only claim-to-fame is he found this place before you did.

    Upvote this node, and exercise your perrogative.
