    Public Manifesto For The Moderators On This Site

    Hi,

    I've been banned with the IDs: Samsation7, Franckcisco, and Thesurgeongod from the forum and I'm here to make my case why I should be allowed to return.

    I was never banned for misdemeanor or ungentlemanly conduct. I have used the name samsation7 for over a year now and later added another account franckcisco for my college roomate since we share the same desktop. Lowcel contacted me that I am only allowed one account so I acquiesced and asked what I should do to comply with forum guidelines. He said, one of two accounts must be closed, which one do you want to close? I said both because I was spending too much time on BF and it has impaired my work somewhat. So he closed both. You can ask him. I thought that I can always create another account and log back in when I have more free time. So I did. And another mod(you?) closed my new account.

    So what can I do at this point? The ban was basically a self-ban. I tried to contact the email (brain@bikeforums.net) WTH is Brain? I'd like to have the Thesurgeongod as my one and only account.

    P.S. I have to make another account just so someone would reply

    ~Sam

    You need to consult a dictionary...Your post is not a manifesto. It is a complaint. But I suppose that makes it sound less impressive.

    Sam...it's Brian. Not Brain. Which is probably why the email wasn't answered.

    Also, try contacting the mod/s you've conversed with in the past - offline of course.

    I'm sorry I don't know enough about your situation to comment. But I do know that the mods are very reasonable people.

    definition of manifesto:"a public declaration of intentions" and my post is as defined, although the word "public" is kind of redundant.

    Hi Rad,

    I'll send another email to "brian@bikeforums.net" Hopefully, he doesn't ban me again out of the blue without at least sending me a PM. Thanks Rad.

    oh come on. We're almost equal-just give me a few more years. I have the misfortune of being born late that's all.

    When I was in grad school, the people who most often referred to themselves as "future PhDs" were generally the same people who ended up terminally ABD (All But Dissertation).

    Now that the site is owned by a for-profit company are the mods still volunteers?

    It's very clear to me.
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

    I wonder what's the BF posters to mods ratio. If very high, I'd like to volunteer my service. I'm here 24/7 anyways.
