    I suspect behind-the-scenes goings on. It seems to be reasonably normal at the moment...

    Was I black balled?

    Well looks like somebody jacked up my old username. For several days I can't get anywhere on bikeforums with the old one. Is there a way that the Admin was able to black ball me without banning me? That's the only thing i can figure out.

    Have I been "Black Balled?"

    Hi. My name is Portis*. I have been black balled. I haven't been able to go anywhere on bikeforums for the last several days. When i try and log in the computer just sits there. I can't open threads and can't reply. So is this just a coincidence or some form of cowardly banning?


    When i log on with this user id everything is fine. Also i can view everything while logged out perfectly fine. I suspect that rascal named Brian is behind this somehow.

    Better to be black-balled than blue-balled.
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    Yep. I've tried everything. It is the same on three different computers, between work and home. Logged in under my old username i can do nothing. I doubt that is a coincidence.

    Advice from my Dad long ago: don't pick, or prolong a fight with someone with a bigger *** or more power.

    You might want to drop this, it's getting you no where and you can't win.

    What the "F" are you talking about? Can you read? I can't log into bike forums with my old username. The account i have had for almost 5 years. So I'm supposed to just be OK with that?

    This is a NEW account. Note the *.

    Sounds like good advice to me. Politely asking about the circumstances might help. Remember the word 'polite'.

    The word 'rascal' is nice and mild, but...have you checked into the vast array of countdown tickers lately?

    No. I'm asking the right people. I'm asking all of the forum members here if they are aware how many people have been axed or quit because Brian is a sociopath. I for one am done with bikeforums. Any place that would have an administrator like that a-hole can kiss my *****.

    I've been here for going on 5 years. And this will be one of my last posts. It's been nice getting to know some of you but the world wide web is a big place. I'm done wasting my time with weezles like Brian.

    Portis, I just sent a PM to your Portis id. It didn't reject it on the send. Not that that helps you because you can't access it, but is an indication you are not banned. Plus, your user tag name has not changed.

    System issue potentially?

    Portis, I've passed this along to a tech person and moved this to Forum Suggestions & User Assistance.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    Sorry about your troubles Portis, but like someone else mentioned...get hold of one of the mods/admins if you haven't already. Maybe some script in your account got messed up....or something is wrong with your 'pewter.
    Just Do It..

    It still shows this in your profile:

    Portis
    Cake Defender!


    If you were banned or something, that Cake Defender! bit wouldn't be there, I think.

    When did you first report this, and to whom?
