in thread Plea for upvotes.

Whatever disagreements are going on, it is not acceptable to just disable your account at will.

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.


      # I wanted to upvote his post to help him vote again, until I read his last paragraph. No upvotes for silly nasty rubbish.... I wish we had the good old buk back.

      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.


        If you really ARE the good old buk (GOB), I have indeed seen your contributions every day, for years. I've bookmarked and reviewed and re-reviewed many of them. Thank you. A lot.

        I just don't think Tye messed with your account. From his past behaviour, I can't see him doing it.

        As well, I would consider jumping to help you out if your approach was not so over-the-top. I don't want to stand up and be counted in support of that behaviour. Sorry. You lost credibility when your posts turned to nonsense and hostility instead of logic.

        And lastly, there are a lot of people here at the monastery. Is there anyone else experiencing similar abuse? Maybe I've missed some posts, but I don't see a trend of others having similar complaints. If its just you, then you might consider stepping back and thinking about other possibilities for you account problem? I can imagine your frustration, though, losing privilege after all these years.


      Boo--. Let sleeping threads lie.

        Your Mother,

        Sorry, but I laughed when I read your post. Why did you not let sleeping dogs lie? But seriously, I thought newcomers should know what's what. Some might think Tye is a tye-rant and not a lot of people are disabusing them of that notion. I don't think that's right. I shut up now.



      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

        Thanks Rolf! I appreciate it.

        I'm not fussed about making worst node. It was worth standing up for Tye.

        Thanks for speaking up for me.
