    OT, 1 week down without The Historian

    one week down into his "ban" and the forums just doesn't seem right without him. We are friends on facebook, but it is still not the same. Neil, I miss your awesomeness on the forums.
    It is not about the destination. It is about the journey getting there.
    Competitors work until they get it right, but champions work until they can't get it wrong.

    It's funny as I was thinking where the Historian was lately.

    How long is the ban? I figured it had something to do with the politics forum - which I have decided to stay out of... I'm very politically active, but decided to stay out of the politics forum on here. We're friends on facebook though so I still chat with him every once in a while.

    If you go to the announcements forum, there is a thread that lists all the bans, length and reasons.

    I believe Historian's is a month.

    In that case, I hope for his own sake he didn't do it to get away from the computer in general.

    Yeah, no kidding he's really going to town there for sure. He keeps throwing out all these obscure Star Wars references, which is much better than boring chess moves

    I must have ticked him off at some point - I sent him a Facebook friend request and he never accepted it.

    resend a request to him. And send me one also. Facebook.com/mike.thayer3
    It is not about the destination. It is about the journey getting there.

    I sometimes get requests and don't know who the person is, because the name on FB and the name here are quite different. It's a good idea when sending a friend request to include a comment that it's __ insert handle here__ from bike forums. I'm fairly easy to find these days, there are only 2 people with my last name in town, the other one is a little old lady at the old folks home. When I lived in Toronto the phone book had two full columns.....

    How could anyone refuse someone who's "cute, fluffy and illegal?"

    Ya, good riddance.

    Me and The Historian don't see eye-to-eye on many things on this forum but I do respect someone with enough self-control and self-awareness to give up something they spend so much time on. Neil, I hope you're getting whatever it is you need out of the self-imposed ban.

    I've tried getting myself banned from websites before for time reasons and it never works as I just spend the time on other places.

    Not everyone wants to have a lot of "friends" on facebook. My facebook friends are people that I would keep in touch with anyways, and no one else. I don't care about people that I knew 20 years ago in school, or people I know with but don't socialize with. So don't take it personally.
    There are 10 types of people, those that understand binary and those that don't.

    I'm sure Neil will let me hear about this once he reads it, but I don't agree with the idea of having a self-imposed ban created. It's an excuse to have someone else do what your own sense of self-control could not. That would be like me walking into Taco Bell and giving them my picture and saying, "Do Not Sell Food to This Man." Did I really exhibit self control?
    "Obstacles don't like me very much. I make them look bad."
